It is unusual for me to post two pieces in the same day, but I came upon such brilliant advice from the blog The Belmont Rooster, that I decided to break with precedent. As the title of this post suggests, the advice involves instructions for continuing with Classic Editor, which is clean and easy to use.
From reading other blogs, I know there has been much consternation with the new Block Editor. I understand. I, too, hate the new system, which I find ugly and clunky. (Some bloggers do like it. After all, it takes all kinds to make the world go round.)
For those, like me, who would rather use Classic Editor, click on the link I provided above with The Belmont Rooster, and you will receive step-by-step instructions.
Here they are in short:
“Scroll down to “Posts” and click or click on “All Posts”… DO NOT CLICK ON “ADD NEW” OR IT WILL TAKE YOU THE NEW EDITOR.
“After clicking you will see “Add New” with an arrow next to it.
“When you click on the arrow you are given the choice to click on “Block Editor” or “Classic Editor”.
“There it is… The Classic Editor. Without having to upgrade to the business plan.”
And, dear blogging friends, by following those instructions, I was able to do this post in Classic Editor.
