Support » Plugin: Gutenberg » Arrggghhhh

  • I moved my WordPress over to self-hosted, intending to post more… then there was Gutenberg. Now I don’t want to post at all. Does anyone know how to remove Gutenberg?

  • It’s a plugin now, just go to plugins and disable it. I leave it installed to check it after updates to see if it’s any better…. news flash. it’s not. It actually prevents the New Page… page from loading. So if I want to add any content, I have to disable Gutenberg

    gutenberg is part of the core since wp 5.0, it is not a plugin anymore.
    you need a plugin to disable it instead. “classic editor” is the most used, but then the gutenberg styles are still loaded into the front-end withouth serving any purpose.
    i’d recommend the “disable gutenberg” plugin which completely removes gutenberg.

    @mariecooperactor – the easiest way to remove the Gutenberg editor is to use the Classic Editor plugin.

    Thank you @asoldier @getupworks @buzztone I was getting frustrated because I’d added the Disable Gutenberg plugin but there wasn’t any change. I found a setting in the Classic Editor that was set so that Gutenberg was the default editor. I changed that and deleted Gutenberg plugin and the ‘Disable Gutenberg’ plugin and all seems well. Although, I’ve totally forgotten what I was going to write now 😅 I need a memory plugin 🤣

    glad to hear everything works now.
    as “classic editor” loads the gutenberg front end styles – which is pointless if gutenberg is turned off: you have to configure “disable gutenberg” under settings.

    @getupworks – I’m not seeing the problem you describe with the Classic Editor plugin activated, so I’m not clear what issue you are describing.

    I should mention that the Classic Editor is being updated frequently and now includes a range of options which lets you choose in detail when you want to use either the Classic Editor or Block Editor. (hope it’s OK add screenshot link here)

    from the release notes of “disable gutenberg” 1.5.2:

    • Adds option to disable frontend Gutenberg styles

    i can confirm: with “classic editor” activated,
    is loaded to the front end / theme. this does not happen with “disable gutenberg”.
