The Block Editor (aka Gutenberg)
Time to Make the Switch!
You don't need to continue to struggle with the Classic Editor plugin. WordPress introduced the block editor, initially as a plugin named "Gutenberg" almost three years ago but kept the old way of writing posts as the Classic Editor plugin. The block editor is now the standard editor and most people find it much easier to use than its clunky forebears.
But some people still use the Classic Editor plugin. It's even installed, by default, with every new website built at Wealthy Affiliate.
As always, WordPress is going to be constantly updated and improved every few months. Or more often if needed to fix bugs and security issues. So stop living in the past and make the switch. You'll be glad you did.
Back in 2017/2018 I created a few videos and tutorials to help my Wealthy Affiliate friends to get used to and embrace the block editor. Here's a partial list:
Classic Editor Plugin for That Old Familiar Interface
Gutenberg or Classic Editor? You CAN Have Both
WordPress Gutenberg: Create a New Post using WordPress 5.0 Gutenberg
Integrate Site Content with Gutenberg
Edit Existing Post or Page Using WordPress 5 (Gutenberg)
WordPress Gutenberg: Add Images to Your Post using WordPress 5 Gutenberg
WordPress Gutenberg: Add Links to Your Text and Images
Add Headings to Your Post using WordPress 5 Gutenberg
Available Blocks in WordPress 5 Gutenberg
WordPress Gutenberg: Other Common Blocks
Adding Images WordPress 5
So what are you waiting for?
If you're still using the Classic Editor plugin what are you waiting for? It may not be supported for much longer so the sooner you make the switch the easier it will be.
Start by changing the Settings > Writing
Choose "Block editor" as the Default editor for all users and "Yes" to Allow users to switch editors.
Don't worry. You'll be able to switch back and forth if you need to while you're getting used to using blocks. When you go to Posts > All Posts and hover your mouse over one of your posts you'll see all your editing options.
So your posts will now have the option to edit using the block editor or the classic editor as well as all the other options you may have depending on your site's setup.
