Support » Plugin: Classic Editor » Use for certain users only

  • Is it possible to apply the Classic Editor plugin for one bunch of users and Gutenberg for another? The intention being so that standard users can keep working with classic until the admin/developer has updated and tested plugins for Gutenberg compatibility?

    Presumably a filter of some kind somewhere?

    It sounds like a good idea. However it is not that good to “mix editors”. Once you start a post in Gutenberg, it would be best to finish it there 🙂

    Was thinking to add an “auto-remember” option for posts, i.e. if a post is started in Gutenberg, next time it is edited Gutenberg will be used again. That would make it possible for some users to always use the Classic Editor, and others to use Gutenberg, as long as they don’t edit each other’s posts.

    Excellent idea Andrew. It’s better if the core can also remember the last time editor which users used so it will also show that editor for them when creating new posts. I also suggest integrate a fast way to switch between editors in case that Classic Editor workflow is faster.
