Just letting you know that this new block editor is going to be the demise of my blog. I reached out to WordPress to express how difficult the new editor is to adapt to and how unfriendly the change is. They gave me instructions on how to access the classic editor. However, the classic editor will not be around forever and when it goes so do I.
This is part of the response I received:
But this is just for temporary use, the block editor is permanent and it’s the future of WordPress. So, I recommend you to follow the guides below and get used to with the Block editor.
I’ve loved the simplicity of the old editor, allowing me to focus on my content versus the technical issues. For me, that’s gone.
If any of you have advice, I’m open. Otherwise, it killed my joy in blogging. It took me 1 1/2 hours to do my post this morning.
