If you have a self-hosted WordPress site, and you’re sick and tired of fighting the Gutenberg editor, you can still use the classic editor. However, this editor will only be supported for another year or so. As I understand it, all WordPress users will still need to learn how to use Mr. Blockhead, as I like to call the Gutenberg editor. Despite complaints, WordPress isn’t listening to its customers. If we move our sites to different platforms, we risk losing followers. So, they have us where they want us, and they know it. That having been said, here’s Casey Matthews with Web Friendly Help to explain how you can still use the classic editor on a self-hosted site, at least for another year.
Sometimes You Just Need a Classic—car, burger, or in this case, a WordPress editor. I won’t go on a diatribe about WordPress woes with the new Gutenberg editor. WordPress loves it and is pushing it, but throughout the internet, you’ll find people who aren’t as enthused, disability or not.

When Eve went to her high school senior prom, she wore a red dress that her mother had made for her. That night, after dancing with the boy of her dreams, she caught him in the act with her best friend. Months later, Eve, a freshman in college, is bullied into giving the dress to her roommate. After her mother finds out, their relationship is never the same again.
Twenty-five years later, Eve, a bestselling author, is happily married with three children. Although her mother suffers from dementia, she still remembers, and Eve still harbors the guilt for giving the dress away. When she receives a Facebook friend request from her old college roommate and an invitation to her twenty-five-year high school class reunion, then meets her former best friend by chance, she must confront the past in order to face the future.
