Despite the fact that the new block editor has come a long way, and is way better than earlier versions, I still just don’t see any reason to use it. Personally, for my own workflow and writing style, it only hurts usability and productivity for me.
Clearly, millions of others feel the same way.
I don’t think it has to be one or the other though. The impending doom of there being a clock on the Classic Editor plugin clearly isn’t a good idea, because the goal posts just keep moving on that.
If the plugin needs to be retired at some point, alright, but why not simply integrate it into core as a permanent setting in the admin, under Settings > Writing and let people decide which editor they’d like to use?
I understand that that could increase development time to have to support two editors and that for other reasons, philosophical reasons perhaps, you simply want people to adopt and invest in the new editor, but it’s pretty obvious at this point that it’s just not going to happen; the people have spoken.
If you retire this plugin and you don’t add core support, people will just switch to:
But, I’d feel more confident, warm, and fuzzy, to have continued official support of the original editor, FOREVER! 💙
