Support » Plugin: Gutenberg » Make it possible to switch back to the current editor

  • WordPress is not Drupal or Joomla or Typo3 or any other CMS in the market. WordPress is WordPress, and the most important feature is the (current) editor similar to MS Word. I guess Word-Press has got its name quite because of this fact.
    As others stated here, the simplicity of the current editor is one of the reasons of the success of WordPress in the world.
    The plan of the WordPress development team to integrate the Gutenberg plugin into the core of WordPress in Version 5.0 is a massive attack against most of all users of WordPress in the world. How many WordPress power users have been asked before they made this decision?
    If it’s a done deal to integrate Gutenberg in WordPress 5.0, then I beg the development team to additionally integrate a simple mechanism to switch back to the old (current) editor if a user wants to do that – so everyone has the choice!

    Thanks for leaving a review. There already is a way to turn off the experience: This will remain even in core.

    It’s often easy to look at something and say “that’s easy” when we view it from our use cases, or even the clients we work with. This is not the entire world of WordPress users. As a community we need to work on making a better experience for everyone and listen to everyone using WordPress, find the ground that works for as many as we can and enables everyone.
