Classic Editor

Descrición

Classic Editor is an official plugin maintained by the WordPress team that restores the previous (“classic”) WordPress editor and the “Edit Post” screen. It makes it possible to use plugins that extend that screen, add old-style meta boxes, or otherwise depend on the previous editor.

Classic Editor is an official WordPress plugin, and will be fully supported and maintained until 2024, or as long as is necessary.

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.

By default, this plugin hides all functionality available in the new block editor (“Gutenberg”).

Preguntas frecuentes

Default settings

When activated and when using a classic (non-block) theme, this plugin will restore the previous (“classic”) WordPress editor and hide the new block editor (“Gutenberg”).
These settings can be changed at the Settings => Writing screen.

Default settings for network installation

There are two options:

  • When network-activated and when using a classic (non-block) theme, this plugin will set the classic editor as default and prevent site administrators and users from changing editors.
    The settings can be changed and default network-wide editor can be selected on the Network Settings screen.
  • When not network-activated each site administrator will be able to activate the plugin and choose options for their users.

It is in the main block editor menu, see this screenshot.

Does this work with full site editing and block themes?

No, as block themes rely on blocks. See Block themes article for more information.

This is still the best choice, i don't like different solutions like the built in one into Wordpress

Gutenberg isn´t useful if you write long articles with more text than fancy items like buttons, accordions, 3D thingies or anything else that is for business /ecommerce sites but blogs certainly don´t need. This plugin saved me and keeps working with each Worpress update! I learned to be terrified of most updates since I´m no developer, and if something gets broken with a given update I won´t able to fix it. Please keep this great work beyond 2024!

I created a WordPress website for my salon business and added an editor plugin to make it more user-friendly. The WordPress community has also provided me with amazing support.
