Support » Developing with WordPress » Adding the Classic Editor to a Gutenberg Block Template

  • NOTE: Here is a video that helps explain my question: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1c3pS-j8yq75GAwGDrrMMh9X7fDrCKV5R/view?pli=1

    I am creating a custom post type that includes a set of blocks as a template. My basic code looks like this:

    
    function register_article_post_type(){
        $post_settings = array(
          'label' => 'Articles',
          'public' => true,
          'show_in_rest' => true,
          'template_lock' => 'all',
          'template' => array(
            array( 'core/heading',
                array(
                    'placeholder' => 'Add Categories Heading...',
                    'className' => 'tour_categories_heading'
                )
            ),
            )
        );
        register_post_type('article', $post_settings);
    }
    

    That will create a Custom Post Type called Articles which has a singular Heading block. The thing is, I don’t want a heading block, I want the Classic Editor block.

    But I can’t figure out how to add it. I can easily change the Heading block to a different block (say the paragraph block) if I change array( 'core/heading', to array( 'core/paragraph',.

    But when I check the code in Gutenberg for the name of the Classic editor, nothing shows up. As such, I cannot figure out how to add a Classic editor to the custom post type.

    Any ideas.
