  • Resolved dragonsjaw


    Been reading a bit about the upcoming 4.9 and hope someone can enlighten me about the post editor changes.
    First, I have always used the TEXT pane, I never use the visual pane, I abhor Customizer and avoid it if at all possible.
    How will 4.9 change my world? Will I still have access to the text editor in it’s current form? Will this Gutenberg editor be forced on us? Will there be an opt out button?

    Please advise.
    Thank you.

    Gutenberg is not part of 4.9. It is currently available as a plugin.

    When it is moved into core, you can use the “classic editor” plugin to disable it if you choose.



    Thanks Steve, one less thing to worry about for this upgrade!!
