Upgrading to WordPress 5? Don't Panic
One of my favourite books of all time is The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. It’s a book about a book which has the words “Don’t Panic” written on the cover in large, friendly letters.
So, in the immortal words of Douglas Adams, “don’t panic”.
WordPress 5 is now available for you to update your website.
But there are some things you need to do before you update.
You probably know most of this already, but please follow along. You may pick up a gold nugget or two.
What if I Hate the Block Editor?
Don't panic. Install the Classic Editor plugin then go to Settings > Writing and check the box for "Use the Classic Editor". Things will look exactly the same as they did before the upgrade.
You can try the block editor again when you're more relaxed.
