There was a question asked recently (not this one) where I became involved in a chat amongst the comments. I cannot remember 😏 what the question was so that I can find

Hey Tris,
As per Jay (as far as I can remember) use generate block plug-in.

Problem now solved Anusuya.
See Phil's and my discussion below...

Sometimes accepting change is good for you. The block editor is way better than classic , just do one site and try using all the blocks in a trial page, you will never go back.

any questions, ask Marion LOL

Hey Peter,

You might not think so if you had as many sites to tend to as I do.

Don't mind building with Blocks from scratch but it's another thing to fix a site that is over 10 years old when the owners don't want to spend any more money on their site.

I know this has been marked as solved. But what you wrote about it is a reason why I switched to Thrive Themes. It negates any frustration presented by limitations with free and paid themes.

Hey Dave,

Until Thrive pulls the plug on their support for THAT product too.

They've done this twice to me over the years, so I no longer trust they will stick with the products they develop.

Plus, I've found a less expensive, every bit as reliable, with loads of templates... product that puts Thrive's to shame for price AND support.

Anyone interested can ask me in a private message and I will GLADLY share the name of that product and you won't be given an affiliate link either.

was it this one Trish i had a look at wp edit and that is well outdated...
https://pluginarchive.com/wordpress/wp-edit/v/4-0-4 ( only place i could find it)
the other one i found was wp smart editor...
https://www.joomunited.com/wordpress-products/wp-smart-editor
but disabling the classic then only allows me to edit in the block editor...
i wonder what they are going to do with that switch in hte future...as support is disappearing will that switch...
meaning there will only be one editor available...
i suspect that there wil lbe another couple of plugins appearing between now and the end of the year...but it all depends on what happens with the alternative editor switch or the plugins may have to be a block within the block editor....
i hope you find a solution trish...

BIG HUGS to you Phil!

That was the EXACT chat. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Agreed. It took me long enough to trust WP... now they're doing this makes me a tad upset, knowing that SOOOOO many websites are being forced to change because THEY are forcing changes like these.

Hi - this one? Seems to be a combination of Classic and Block Editor.

It MIGHT be Diane, though that doesn't ring any bells for me.

Thank YOU!

I wonder why Jay never mentioned that one when he said that Classic would be going out.

Hi - I don't know to be honest. Classic Editor will still be around for a while yet, it just won't be supported or updated after December 31 2021.

Yeah, that's my understanding as well :) Guess I should switch over to Block or even tinymice lol

Hi Trish, probably Block Editor :)

Sorry Joe, I will update my question... as I want to be able to keep the Classic Editing ability. Thank YOU for bringing to my attention that I did not express myself properly. I shall update this now.
