A few days ago, WordPress 5.0 was finally launched and together with it, was the new WordPress editor called “Gutenberg”. though it could already be tested a while ago. While the editor received several good reviews and praises from a number of tech sites, I personally find it lacking. I have used this new editor for a month and I have experienced several bugs and inconveniences. Therefore, in my opinion, Gutenberg is still incomplete and it still needs several improvements.
Now, if you are happy with using Gutenberg, then continue to use it. For those of you who want to use the former editor, here is a simple tutorial to switch back to the classic editor:
1. When on the Gutenberg editor, click on the vertical ellipsis on the upper right section of the screen.
2. On the drop-down menu, select “Switch to Classic Editor”.
3. A dialog box will appear. When prompted whether you want to leave the page, click “Leave Page”.
