How to quickly access WP Classic Editor

Oh, wow! Hello Classic Editor, I have missed you much!

Massive thanks to Wild Daffodil who showed me how to access the classic editor in WordPress without having to jump through hoops.

Basically, you go to your dashboard, go to Posts, click the drop down arrow next to Posts Add New, and then choose Classic Editor.

EDITED TO ADD: If you’re not getting the same screen that I am, try putting this in your browser bar: https://your-site-name.wordpress.com/wp-admin/edit.php

They’re threatening to remove Classic Editor completely, so the more who complain about it, the more likely we’ll get to keep it.

If you use the free WP, you can use the support forum here. If you use the paid-for WP, you can access support here.

If you hate block editor as much as I do, LET THEM KNOW. If block editor means you are less likely to use WP, LET THEM KNOW. If blogging with WP used to be a dream and now it is a nightmare, LET THEM KNOW.

At the moment, they think that everybody LOVES it. We need for them to know that we don’t. Or not all of us at any rate. And don’t forget, some of us are paying for this as well.

If you do love Block Editor, please drop a comment below, as I’d be as interested to see who does like it as I am who doesn’t like it.

In the meantime, Wild Daffodil’s fix is here.
