Wp answer, short and sweet!

Heres what the customer service rep at wp said to me when I sent in my complaint.
I’ll put what I wrote and then their response back to me!

Hi! I wanted to bring it to your attention that most of my blogger friends and me are not happy with the block editor, many of my blogger friends are going to move their blog elsewhere, can you bring back classic editor? I am blind, and the block editor is confusing. Classic editor works well! Is there a possibility you can use it again or we can have a choice? I’d really love it if we could, I don’t want to see all of my blogging buddies abandon their blogs and leave wp!

Hi! I can understand your frustration. We’re listening and passing along the feedback that we’re getting from customers.

So there you have it! The more people who complain the quicker they’ll go back to classic editor, well, hopefully!

  1. Reblogged this on Writing Wrinkles and commented:
    For those unhappy with WP’s decision to abandon the Classic WP editor , here is one person’s objection and the WP response.
    I particularly noted the good natured tone of Carol Anne’s request (given that she has more reason than many of us to regret the passing of the Classic Editor) and by the absence of ranting. I’m sure WP’s customer service readers noticed it too.

    Personally, I’ve been using the Block editor, but I still need the Classic block to format certain parts of the fiction I’m serialising and to simlpify colour in my posts. My fear is that once the Classic Editor is mothballed the Classic Block will follow.
    So let them know how YOU feel.

  2. Their response isn’t hopeful. I wish you well. I gave up at my wp site and now am at a Weebly site. It’s much easier for me. Good luck, Carol Anne.

  3. On the one hand I agree with you that I donโ€™t really like changes being forced upon us. But then, I the new editor is not being forced upon us. The classic editor is still available, even if in a somewhat roundabout way.
    If you end up with the new one โ€“ as is usual nowadays โ€“ just click on the โ€œ+โ€ button at the top of the screen, search for โ€œClassicโ€ and insert that block. This way, you kind of get a โ€œclassic blockโ€.
    You can also go via โ€œWP Adminโ€ on the dashboard -> โ€œPostsโ€ -> โ€œadd Newโ€. That takes you directly to the classic editor.
    Iโ€™d suggest that you bookmark that URL and from then on you can go directly to the classic editor with just one click (on that bookmark).
    You can also use my link here
    Just put in the name of your blog instead of the three ??? and I think itโ€™ll work. Thatโ€™s the way I do it.
