  1. I DESPISE IT!!! 🙁

  2. I was so so pissed off with this new block editor. I so much got used to block editor that I had to write to support and they show me a way to use classic editor inside it too

    1. Please do a post on “how to” if you have some insight.

      1. OK… I will do that

        1. Great!!! Many thanks.

          1. I have done that

            1. Let me check it out, thanks.

  3. If you mean block, I have made my peace with it, although I would prefer to control things like type size, centering….myself! Pene, I read that the classic version is available again. I think wordpress got a LOT of complaints! <3 I really hope that there is not another change I don't know about yet! Take care, Cheryl

    1. Ok I will see about the classic version. Thank you!!!

  4. I CAN’T STAND BLOCK EDITOR. It’s awful. I try to just deal with it by using the classic block and writing within that but the whole thing sucks for me so bad. It’s designed for marketers I guess, not writers. Thanks for this Pene, love 💗💗🙌🙏

  5. I am not able to add captions under photos and it’s driving me nuts. I hate the new block editor too.

    1. I cannot find the color fonts as yet. So frustrating.

  6. The block editor has tutorials out there, but they’re almost as bad as the editor itself.

    I despise that I have such limited control over text formatting. Even the worst desktop publisher or word processor is infinitely better than the blockhead editor

    1. Yes. I believe they should have kept the old ones and let us decide which ones to use.

  7. As one of the above comments said — Classic Editor is the best and the simplest. On the Settings Page you can choose Classic or Block.

    1. Thank you I will….Thanks a million, it is a little easier to use.

      1. Or search for Classic when you add a block, and that will pop up each time automatically. I was a reluctant convert too, and had to instantly learn it yesterday. We will cope!

        1. Yes we will have to sink or swim as the saying goes, lol, I appreciate you, have a lovely evening.

    2. I was about stating this. The block editor is so much hassle. I use the classic too. 🙂

      1. Yes I will go back to that.
        I find myself so busy helping my 8 year old on zoom classes. It’s my other full time job. i barely have time for anything else.

        1. That would be good. 🙂
          That is nice. How has it been since she resumed?. I believe with time, it will get better – Having to combine it both.
          Hugs sis. It gets better. 🤗

          1. My eldest is back in the dorm, continuous prayer. My daughter is self sufficient, and Snookums takes up all my days.

  8. P.S. Got to ‘Settings’ then ‘Writing’ — you should be able to see A box to check to make Classic your Default editor.

  9. I still use Classic Editor. Don’t prefer the Block Editor.

    1. I will look also.

  10. It took so getting used for me. But then they change something else with no notice

    1. I know. As soon as we are comfortable, bam!!
      Maybe a blessing in disguise — help us with Alzheimer’s later by keeping those neurons firing.

  11. […] cell phone?Oh heck yeah!! Who wouldn’t want a selfie with Jesus😊I am tagging🤔🤔🤔Pene’AmyKathyVickieSteveDeandraJacquieOk, 7 it is. My favorite numbers😊Please do not feel obligated to […]

  12. I’m still using classic. I’ve got enough stress in my life without having to change every year or two.

    1. I know, lol… they are keeping us older folks on our toes.

  13. I can usually adjust easily to most things, but this I hate! I can’t get used to it. I don’t know why they couldn’t leave it alone.

    1. Here here!

  14. Super confusing, isn’t it?

    1. Yes it is, and just as I got used to the old version. have a great day!!!

  15. I don’t like it either. I live by the mantra that “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”

  16. truly awful & works even worse when not on desktop. wishing you luck

    1. Lol… I am learning to live with it.

  17. Hello, I hope you and family are well. I did not like it at first but forcing myself to use it it is ok. You should see the option to use the old Classic version. Have a great day and remain safe.
