I’m fed up with WordPress.

I finally had an idea for a blog post, and tried to follow my own instructions in this post, and get nothing but the block editor.

I feel like WordPress betrayed us.
But dammit! I didn’t want to have to start writing on a brand new platform tonight.

I’m writing this partly to test this trick, which didn’t come from the WordPress staff.   It actually came from some of you, so thank you!

All the WP staff tells us to do to access the Classic Editor is to “go to WP Admin.”  Do they assume we’re all techies?  I’m sorry, but I’m old and need things like this explained to me like I’m old.

Hit the down arrow and you’ll have the option to choose either classic or block. Choose classic and then it should bring up a post which you can write using the classic editor.

    Unfortunately, you have to do that every time you want to write a post. Hope that helps.
