They want me to use wordpress editor?

selfex

I’m an old fuddy duddy, I do things how I like to.

I try and make original paintings and write as spontaneously as I can here.

I’m getting pretty nervous of the new editor. Yes I could try it but what happens if I like this one? Will they switch it off. I’ve invested a lot of time in WordPress and I hope my blog isn’t too boring. It would be a real pain to learn it all again. I’ve got enough on my plate without having to be doing with it .

I’m getting old and cermudgenley. I’m also trying to confuse spell checker with old words!

Goodnight one and all . X

New Editor?

sketch-1590101169724

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.

New editor review. Plus link from WordPress for help with it.

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. ….

I’ve had a response from WordPress… You can use this link for more information on how to use editor:
