You can switch back to the old Classic Editor in WordPress 5.0 if Gutenberg is not for you

We get it, change is difficult… but necessary nevertheless to keep moving forward with everything in life!

If you’re like us and want to embrace some of the great changes WordPress 5.0 has to offer without using the Gutenberg editor, then you’re in luck, there’s a plugin for that!

As we use a professional designed WordPress template with a beautiful page builder, we didn’t want our clients to be left with a user experience that might not be as seamless as it sounds yet.

So, without further ado, here’s the link to the Classic Editor plugin: https://en-ca.wordpress.org/plugins/classic-editor/

You can also find it by going to the backend of your website > Plugins > Add new > type “Classic” in the search field on the right hand side and you’ll be able to install it.

You’ll find some options in the Settings > Writing where you can set it as the default editor and prevent any other users on your website from reverting to Gutenberg.

Voila! You can now enjoy the new features of WordPress 5.0 while using the editing tools you were accustomed to.
