Class Editor v Block Editor
It’s all in the name ‘classic’ classic infers something that worked- that’s quintessential and time honoured but now we’re moving on: classic is dead-classic is dead. Make way for the BLOCK! Even the name sounds ridiculous.
Why? Block is not user friendly-it’s too demanding, too confusing, too all over the place- irregular and anomalous.
At least the choice is still there but it’s constantly demanding use BLOCK. No I won’t!
To change to classic editor when creating a new page or post-on add new box
scroll to end of page click
then you are offered the option of clasic or block
Sometimes you wonder is it that software developers are sitting there navel gazing wondering is there anything to do? I know let’s make some changes. And changes are good if they are done for the right reason-not just change for changes sake.
I know says dev we are WordPress mo’k? Then Gutenberg the first press- yaw- that’s it we’ll make it like a book shape and on and on and they get all carried away.
Classic works- it is easy to follow-you don’t have to move things around. You want to write a story just write on a page like it is word doc and write.
You want to add media well no problem: press the add media or + and there you have it. But with block it is so tedious and mind numbing and super unfriendly- it must have been a bad pizza day when they came up with that block head idea.
