Getting used to the new WordPress

I haven’t used wordpress for a good few years, but the dashboard looks pretty much the same, but there is one major and detrimental difference… Block Editing!

What a heap of garbage. It wouldn’t be so bad if you could drag and position the blocks until you can make a decent arrangement, but you can’t. Everything goes in the wrong place, you can’t move them so delete and try to reinsert, only for it to go wrong again. This ‘Improvement’ is a productivity killer.

The best thing about WordPress is that it is modular, and  you can restore the old editor as a plugin:

  • Classic Editor
  • Classic Editor Addon
  • TinyMCE Advanced
  • Disable Gutenberg

Add these and you are back to a decent level of productivity.

Why did they go and fix it, when it wasn’t broken?
