Classic versus block?

alphabe5 72

WordPress is changing. They are going over to block editor. Those that, like me, like using the simple classic editor can choose ‘classic block’ whatever that means. Apparently you have to choose it as an option. Now I can share my favourite podcast (I don’t have one and I’ve never heard one). Not all of us are technically minded. WordPress should be easier to use. Not harder. It’s like you learn a language only to be told there will be no vowels (vwls) from nw n. Ts sy whn y knw hw…… I saw a post about it in WordPress reader and replied :

Why? How? I’m not technical. I pay for this service. I’ve tried block editor, its horrible. I don’t understand it. Lots of us on here feel the same way. I feel we are not even considered let alone listened to.

Will anyone bother to listen, or are we, like classic editor, obsolete?

New Editor?

Has anyone else seen notices on WordPress about a new editor being released? I’m just about OK with the classic editor, and I don’t like the Gutenberg one. Is that the right name for it? Anyway, I am confused. Is the new editor a brand new one or the Gutenberg one? There are posts saying get ahead with it. There were previous ones last year about ‘levelling up’. But I’m not a revolutionary sort of person. I don’t need change every year. Let me use the basic skills I have as a slightly older writer. Don’t force unnecessary change on me. Please.
