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!
