Hi

On the dashboard under SETTINGS then WRITING, there is a choice to select either CLASSIC EDITOR or BLOCK EDITOR.

Is BLOCK EDITOR the same as GUTENBERG ED? Or is it just a block editing step up inside CLASSIC?

Thanks,
Robert

AH-HA!
This is what I was looking for. I got this notice when I installed and activted the Gutenberg Plugin

"Stackable Notice: We noticed that the Gutenberg plugin is active! Just a heads up, you don't need the Gutenberg plugin anymore to use the Block Editor. The Gutenberg plugin may contain non-final features which may not be compatible with some block plugins. Please deactivate the Gutenberg plugin unless you really need it. Click the close button on the side to dismiss this notice."

The above notice was at the top of my dashboard.

So, that makes it simple!
Have a great day all AND a great weekend.

Abie is correct the classic editor will be deprecated at the end of the year. The block editor gives you so much more possibilities. Blocks that you use all the time you can save and then you just insert them rather than having to keep typing them out.

Jay has done a series of training about the block editor and I believe the link below is the first one Once you get used to it you will never want to go back to the classic editor.

If you have any more questions Robert feel free to ask

Hi and thanks

Yes, I did hear that the classic is on its way out, or at least will no longer have tech support.
I am using the block editor and at first it was a bit tough, but I am getting the hang of it.

One more question than if you don't mind, Catherine.

Is the block editor Gutenberg?

Thanks and have a great evening.

Hi

Each is different editor, however the classic editor updates would be terminated later in the year, so it is good to use and get used to the block editor.
