Describe the bug
I'm not using gutenberg before. After upgrading wordpress to 5, I can only add a title block and content block for new post. The content block, which I think is a classic block, has no toolbar on it.

To Reproduce
Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. Create New Post

Expected behavior
I should be able add block. Instead I can only have the title block and a content block. The content block even has no toolbar on it.


Desktop (please complete the following information):

  • OS: Windows 10
  • Browser: Firefox 66 / Chrome 71

Additional context
The version of gutenberg is the one comes with wordpress 5.0.1. I do not find any javascript error in the devtool console. I suspect a plugin conflict here but really has no clue on what to start from:

The visual editor is ON, but the editor is still the same that cannot add new block.
I'll reopen a new issue.
