WordPress 5.0 has hit the scene and with it a new editor for WordPress called ‘Gutenberg’ – aka ‘The Block Editor’. It is both good and bad depending on your preference…

Many will think “this is GREAT! so many more options!”

But there’s also a fair share of people who love the classic editor.  It is a solid writing platform and a sudden learning curve can be a real pain and inconvenience.

So I have some videos here that will help.

It’s simple, you can revert to the classic editor, convert your old blog posts or learn your way around the new editor.

In this video we show you how you can go back to the old classic WordPress editor for your posts and pages.

The first option we look at is by using a ‘Classic Editor’ Block within Gutenberg. The second option is by adding the classic editor in so it completely bypasses Gutenberg (but can also allow you to choose between both.)
