Block Editor – My Way

Published April 25, 2021 by rochellewisoff

Many thanks to Gabi for sharing this with the rest of us WP Luddites to take the pain out of the change. I’ve fought it for a couple of years. But I’m determined to get the hang of it. Please click on the link at the bottom to read more. 

Through several comments I’ve learned that I’m not the only one in the Friday Fictioneers group who has problems with the block editor. Since that one is the future and Classic won’t likely be functional by next year, I’ve collected a few easy tips and tricks how I made my peace with the block editor. Mind you, I still struggle with some of the features. It is not intuitive and really needs getting used to. I am getting better but it still does things I don’t want it to do.

      Shalom and lotsa hugs that need no updates or instructions,

      • Oh, I agree it is helpful and I’m positive that following her steps (although I never use an existing post to springboard onto another) will guarantee success for those who follow it.

I have had to recreate a post before since I accidentally overwrote it. So I always make sure it says Publish in the upper right instead of Update now.

  • I was upset that the classic editor wouldn’t be around much longer and I did not want to use blocks until I found a classic block!! Works exactly like the classic editor!!


  • Speak to me so I know someone's reading me. (Your comments brighten my day.)
