Support » Plugin: Gutenberg » Horrendous builder – should be optional as part of Classic Editor

  • I tried using the block editor and could not continue with it. The following are its main problems but there are more issues with it: all white UI, being stuck together without separation, elements being hidden until you hover over them (how do you know where they are?), hidden elements elsewhere that were so conveniently placed before, sections cannot be moved, etc.

    Funny enough, new WordPress users complain to us across our businesses about how difficult WordPress is. We then tell them to give us access to install Classic Editor and they thank us and tell us how easy it is with the Classic Editor.

    We never use the block editor as a company and won’t.

    Classic Editor is how WordPress should be. If you want a better way to add the block editor to WordPress, make it as part of the Classic Editor, next to the “Visual” and “Text” tabs. It should work just like the Page Builder by SiteOrigin where it has a tab next to the “Text” and then maintains the Classic Editor look.

    If you do end up keeping the block editor, PLEASE make it so that it uses the Classic Editor design, colours, interface, and look, and NOT the all-white-with-no-separation design.
