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.
I’ve just reverted back to the old classic editor (thanks Martha Kennedy for explaining).
I tried to get the new one. I really did. But there are too many bells and whistles I don’t understand.
If I had to rate it I would give it 7/10.
Its not bad, but for someone like me who can’t code and who has only rarely used html… What is that anyway? I was just flummoxed.
Things like tags, I like using tags so people can find my stuff. It took me a while to find them on the old version. I found them again on the new editor. But although I eventually found the publish key I don’t know whether they showed up.
My other problem reverting to classic, is that I have already written this once. Pressed preview and then an error message came up, page cannot be found! It feels very much like a poem I wrote, “unexpected item in the bagging area”. So I put in a plea to WordPress to ask for help. No response yet. I’m not saying this is bad, just that I’m not clever enough to understand. ….
