Are you tired of playing with blocks? Would you like to throw WordPress’s block editor out the window? Well, at least for now, if you follow Beetlepete’s instructions, you’ll be able to edit your posts in the classic editor once you’ve created them with Mister Blocky, as he unaffectionately calls Gootenberg.
As a matter of fact, Casey Matthews with webfriendlyhelp.com followed these instructions when he worked with me on this issue a few days ago, and it worked like a charm. Unfortunately, the classic editor won’t be around forever. So, we all will eventually be sitting on the floor, playing with our blocks for good. But at least for now, there’s a work-around.
I finally managed to get one of the many tips to work. One issue was that I have ‘Two-Stage Verification’ on my Account Settings. Once I worked out how to get into that, I used this easy tip, and now have access to the Classic Editor every time.
Remember to ‘Save Settings’ though.
If you can’t read that on screen, here’s a link to the original post.
I don’t know how long WP will let that loophole exist, but if you are unhappy with the Block Editor, this will work.
