Is there an exact date that the classic editor will be discontinued?

Is everyone going to unplug their plug ins when the classic editor is obsolete?

Pleanty of answers below, Ken ... I just wanted to comment on plugins ... most plugins work with both classic and block at the moment so in the main plugins don't need to be changed.

Hey Richard...It has been quite the ride...
I think I finally have another real solid understanding for my future here.....
I am taking the course all over again due to all of the changes...including the new style plug ins...
Thanks to people like you I am going to make it...

Hey Ken
Thanks for the thanks ...
the only reason you'll make it though is because of the man you are ... we all get lots of help, but not everyone perseveres the way you are.

Originally it was going to the Dec 31 but there has been given a one-year extension for now.
Here is what WordPress dot org have to say

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

nothing definite has been said...
official support was supposed to stop at the end of the year, but that has been pushed back to the end of 2022...
so it will be around supported for another year...
once official support ends it would be a good idea to deactivate and delete the plugin as it may become a security risk in the future...
so now would be a very good time to learn the block editor...

Thank you Phil....

I was curious about when to delete the plug in...

I will learn the new editor all this next year and will prepare to make the transfer.

However I will delete the old editor at least 3 months prior to the shut down....if not sooner!!

Thanks again
