New WordPress Editor

  1. Is anyone else using the new WordPress Editor?
  2. Does anyone have any particular issue with it?
  3. Is anyone starting to hate it as much as I am?

Well, to elaborate on the last first, you probably read that and thought, I don’t know. How much are you starting to hate it?

I expect a learning curve with any change. But when I follow the process and it doesn’t come out as expected, forcing me to begin trouble-shooting, only to discover there isn’t any trouble-shooting to do, leaving me unable to post what I want when I want to post it, then I begin to hate the application. 

Like, that whole thing with blocking a paragraph to work on it is irritating. So is the inability to use MS Word commands that I’m used to having.

Yes, I’m getting old and cranky. So what’s your point.

All this leads me to my real question: how do I return to the previous editor? That’ll be this weekend’s project.

      1. Ben, I was thinking that this morning when I saw that little banner lurking at the bottom of the page that comes up whenever I create a post. I hope that they don’t do that to us.


    1. Yes, I like to be bold in these situations, but I’m often dubious that it’ll be better. In retrospect, it’s probably a fifty/fifty result in most cases. Not in this one. After trying out the new editor, I saw nothing advantageous to using it and went back to the old one. Much happier, thanks.

    1. Strange, but I prefer writing directly in the editor, and I find the new editor intrusive. It amuses me that it claims it’s going to level up my output. My initial experiences – five attempts – it was the opposite. Maybe that’s just me.

  1. I’m not liking it and want to get back to the old one, just need to figure out how… This new thing makes writing really cumbersome as it has lots of automatic formatting that I really don’t like. What a belly flop!

  2. Yes, yes! The new WordPress Editor just made it more difficult to create content. Why can’t I add multiple images at one time? Why is it creating a new block when I just want to start a new paragraph? Why does it say there is something wrong with the code, when I only made a minor change in HTML? I haven’t tried it in the App on a mobile device. Maybe it suppose to be easier for the mobile users.
