Support » Plugin: Classic Editor » Needs a third Writing option

  • Resolved gruts


    This plugin should provide users with a third Writing option, namely:

    – Use the Classic editor by default and include optional links to the Gutenberg editor.

    I don’t want to disable Gutenberg entirely, as I can see it being useful (very occasionally). But the Classic editor will be my preferred choice in the vast majority of cases. The only way I can have access to both at the moment is to be forced into the Gutenberg editor, then select the Classic option. I should be able to select the Classic option by default.

  • As I understand, you need a fast way to switch between editors (example press CTRL+SHIFT+E to switch), right?

    I also hope they can integrate that feature into Classic Editor plugin, or better including in core. That will save us a lot of time.

    Yeah, planning to add couple more things:
    – Remember when Classic editor was used for each post and open it next time.
    – Use Classic editor by default and add links to the Block editor (Gutenberg).

    Hoping to get that done before 5.0 is out 🙂

    Thanks for the update, Andrew. What you’re suggesting would definitely work for me (although I’d prefer it if this functionality were core, rather than in a plugin!).

    I’ve spent a long time now experimenting with the Block editor, and stand by initial assessment: occasionally useful, but would definitely slow me down a lot as the default editor. Good luck with getting the change done before Gutenberg is unleashed on an unexpecting world!
