I Know… You Warned Me!

I know, I know, you warned me again and again about the Block Editor that WordPress has insisted upon us using. That it was coming. That there were tutorials & how-tos. That I should practice with it.

Obviously, I have resisted. What I was using worked, worked great, in fact! Why fix it if it’s not broke? Right?

Well, WordPress has forced my hand. So here I am, stumbling over the building blocks of the Block Editor. ha ha… 😦

WordPress has also been playing around with other parts of the site lately too. I find that I have to search for things that I used to be able to locate with no problem. Why, WordPress, why??

I know that with time, this will become old-hat. But why push me out of my comfort zone? Was the Classic Editor some weird threat to WordPress? Did it allow a security hole of some kind? What was the harm?

If you know of a work-around or a way to get back the Classic Editor, PLEASE let me know.

No, I don’t want to be told ‘how easy’ the Block Editor is. I’m mad, dammit! And I want to stay that way! πŸ™‚

  1. I know how frustrating it is when someone pulls you from your comfort zone. But good news about WordPress editor is that you can still use the classic editor! Just install the classic editor plugin.

    But still they should have kept it in the core and not as a plugin.. Anyway best luck!!!

  2. If you go to the top left corner of the new editor and click on the second from the left icon it will open icon choices. If you search on the top half you will find an icon called Classic. Click on it and it will allow you to post in the old Classic.
    You are welcome, My Dear! Wished you would have asked sooner!
