Guternberg — Please Don’t Do This
I have just “upgraded” to the latest wordpress, and I must say — I had to immediately install the plugin for the older editor so I could continue creating content. I understand that not everyone knows, or wants to use, css/htnl, but — honestly — making it impossible to do so is utterly beyond me.
I have specific css classes I use for specific things, and specific snippets of code I use for specific kinds of content. I’m certain I could figure all of this out with these new “block” things, but — really — why???? Give me back a text editor mode, and allow me to use my own custom css classes without being forced to jump through the “simple hoop” that turns out to be more complex than it’s worth.
This is a horrible interface. When wordpress stops supporting my ability to see the actual html in the post, then I will switch off wordpress entirely. I know most people want to publish without understanding the underlying stuff, and I understand that wordpress wants to separate the world into content creators and developers, in order to grow the developer market as much as possible — but — just stop this. Now.
