Absolutely love the “Topic” Approach, I have been using the topic for some time now, I am happy they have included a Wordpress plugin that works great with Guttenberg editor, Now as a Wordpress user, it’s easier for me to work on my content without leaving my editor. Thanks & Keep up the good work 🙂
