I was asked by one of us here to make a post on how to use a classic editor inside this new block editor that was just introduced by WordPress.
About a month ago this block editor was introduced and mandated to the used by all WordPress users, I was so pissed and angry. My anger was from that to make a simple post that do take me few mins now took up to hours just to create a single post.
So I wrote to support asserting that this new block editor is too complicated and difficult to understand and use. I got a reply that they had to upgrade to higher editor that is more proficient.
I was then given a guide on how to use the classic editor inside the new block editor.
While Using a Browser
Step 1: Open your browser and click on add post button.
Step 2 : check the top most left of the new page displayed (block editor)
Step 3 ; Click on the ➕ sign there and it will display another page with so many icons.
Step 4: Go to search and type classic editor and it will pop up, then choose it.
Here is a video guide.You can change your browser to desktop size to be easier.
While Using the App.
