Editing Old Posts and Pages

Last Update: July 09, 2020

When the block editor became the WordPress default editor many people resisted the change and installed the Classic Editor plugin. This was fine but a tad short-sighted. The block editor is now easier to use and it's about jolly time we got with the program.

But what are you supposed to do with the existing posts that were created before WordPress 5 or with the Classic Editor plugin?

OK they still work but what if you want to add some new content, say a call to action, in the middle of the post?

You could copy and paste and run the risk of messing things up or you could just watch this updated video and do it the easy way.
