Quick Tip! - Don't Like The New Wordpress Editor? Try This Free Plugin!

Published on 12/21/2018

No matter where I publish my posts and press releases, almost all of my editing is done within the Wordpress editor. I just find it a quick and easy way to format and add photos the way I want.

For example...I write all of my IBO Press Releases in a simple notepad. Then I copy and paste into WP editor, add headings, formatting, and media. Then copy and paste the html into the IBO PRTool. The images and media are hosted on my website.

An Unexpected Surprise

So it came as a suprise last week to have this simple process disrupted by one of the biggest Wordpress updates in years (codenamed Gutenberg). The most noticable changes have occurred in the editor - now based around 'blocks'.

Needless to say...It took me all day to get 're-learn' WP post editing in order to complete a PR. I needed to get back the old editor for efficiency sake! It was going to take a bit of time to get used to the new look and style.

Fortunately, the developers anticipated this and have created a plugin to bring back the old editor. Judging by the number of users, this was a wise move.

wp-classic-editor

Classic Editor

From the press release:

Classic Editor is an official plugin maintained by the WordPress team that restores the previous (“classic”) WordPress editor and the “Edit Post” screen. It makes it possible to use plugins that extend that screen, add old-style meta boxes, or otherwise depend on the previous editor.

Classic Editor is an official WordPress plugin, and will be fully supported and maintained until at least 2022, or as long as is necessary.

You can download the plugin here.

As soon as you activate the plugin, Gutenberg will be completely disabled (with the option to switch back and forth). All of your post and page edit screens will look like they did in WordPress 4.9 and below. That's it!

Happy editing :)

All the best to your success,

Michael
