HATE it with a vengeance… It’s bloody awful. I’m in my fifties…I’m a designer and like having control of my blogging. You lose it big time with BLOCK EDITOR… I also work with visually impaired bloggers, this mean’s my work now takes twice as long… ANNOYING… In fact, I’ve not posted since it was forced on me… DISAPPOINTED.
You can get the plugin Classic Editor, however, you need a Business Account to use it…You can get a partial Classic on WP-ADMIN area, though the Justify is missing…Still not found it and I hate untidy posts. Still Muttering and WP have stopped replying to me.
If anyone who reads this is not happy with the new Block Editor, if you don’t want to use it, wish it had never happened, and quite literally hate the thing, then please reblog this post, share it constantly on social media, and let’s see if we can get WordPress to take notice of us.
Dear WordPress, you have started to force the Block Editor on your blogging community. You must have your reasons for this, and I supect they are commerical ones. After all, you have to make a profit, and you continue to provide a basic blogging platform free of charge to the majority of your bloggers.
You will also be aware that a significant percentage of your loyal bloggers absolutelyHATEthis new Block Editor. It is not intuitive, and we can see no good reason for it having to be forced on us.

Well over a year ago, WordPress announced that the WordPress.com Classic editor was being set for retirement. Since the beginning of 2019, I’ve also mentioned this in several of my own blog posts.
On August 13, 2020, WordPress finally announced that their Classic editor was now officially retired. However, it’s not entirely disappearing.
To continue using the Classic editor, users will have to access it via the Classic block on the Gutenberg Block Editor.
The Classic block provides an editing experience that mimics the Classic editor with some added benefits.
When are the changes taking place?
The changes are happening in phases. WordPress will email users informing them when to expect the change.
