Classic Editor


Classic Editor é un plugin oficial mantido polo equipo de WordPress que restaura o editor anterior (“clásico”) de WordPress e a pantalla de “Editar entrada”. Fai posible usar plugins que estenden esta pantalla, engaden metaboxes co estilo anterior ou dependen de calquera outra maneira do editor anterior.
Por defecto este plugin oculta todas as características dispoñibles no novo Editor de bloques (” Gutenberg”).

At a glance, this plugin adds the following:

  • Administrators can select the default editor for all users.
  • Administrators can allow users to change their default editor.
  • When allowed, the users can choose which editor to use for each post.
  • Each post opens in the last editor used regardless of who edited it last. This is important for maintaining a consistent experience when editing content.

Ademais, Classic Editor inclúe varios filtros que permiten que outros plugins controlen os axustes e a elección de editor por publicación e por tipo de contido.

Classic Editor é un plugin oficial de WordPress e recibirá mantemento e actualizacións polo menos ata 2022.

Right plugin at the right time.

All my websites are built with custom fields. after upgrading to 5.0 I was totally worried about gutenberg. It may be easy but I still love the classic editor. all the themes I developed with the support of classic editor. Now I am happy that i’m using wp latest version 5.0 without any trouble.

SO HAPPY That this exists, I was panicking and scared until I found it

I manage a lot of website SEO for clients, about 1,000 articles and posts and pages a year. If this plugin had not been here I would have been totally just lost in my business. My workload for customers would have gone up so much I wouldn’t have been able to handle it. I was literally scared, as I spent the afternoon trying desperately to find a way to make the pages like I used to using Gutenburg and couldn’t. Scared me.

Saved me

Gutenberg has some major issues with ACF, arguably the most important plugin for WP developers. Switching back to the Classic Editor is a must until the Gutenberg bugs are all worked out.

How low will it take to sink in?

So since the release of WordPress 5.0, this Classic Editor plugin has been gaining about 100,000 new installs per day. Meanwhile, every few minutes the Gutenberg plugin receives a new 1-star rating. There is a 5-star rating every now and then, mostly by users who accidentally forgot to change the default 5-star rating to a 1-star rating.

I wonder how long it will take for the people behind WordPress to realize that Gutenberg was not wanted. My bet is that it will take a long time. If you have a look at the Make WordPress Core section of this website, it’s all about blocks, blocks, blocks, blocks, blocks, blocks, blocks, blocks, blocks, blocks, blocks, blocks, blocks, blocks, blocks, blocks, blocks, blocks and then some more blocks. If you look at the Plugins section, plugins that support blocks with fewer than 10 active installs are heavily promoted.

All good things come to an end and unfortunately WordPress is no exception.
