Classic Editor


Classic Edita pulagini ya WordPress elabirirwa mu butongole nga ezza Edita ya WordPress enkadde n’olutimbe lwa “Edit Post”. Esobozessa pulagini endala ezikozessa olutimbe olukadde, okwongera ko metaboxes enkadde oba ebirala ebikwatte ku edita enkadde.

Classic Editor is an official WordPress plugin, and will be fully supported and maintained until 2024, or as long as is necessary.

Awasokelwa, eno pulagini eyongera ko bino wamanga:

  • Abalabirizi bo mutimbagano basobola oku londa edita esokelwa ko abakozessa bonna.

In addition, the Classic Editor plugin includes several filters that let other plugins control the settings, and the editor choice per post and per post type.

Mu ntegeeka esokelwa ko, eno pulagini ekwekka ebikola byonna mu edita empya(“Gutenberg”).


  • Entegekka z'omulabrizi ku lupapula lw'entegeka ->.
  • User settings on the Profile screen. Visible when the users are allowed to switch editors.
  • "Action links" to choose alternative editor. Visible when the users are allowed to switch editors.
  • Link to switch to the block editor while editing a post in the classic editor. Visible when the users are allowed to switch editors.

  • Endagiriro ya "Kyussa ode ku Classic Edita"


Entegeeka esoka

When activated and when using a classic (non-block) theme, this plugin will restore the previous (“classic”) WordPress editor and hide the new block editor (“Gutenberg”).
These settings can be changed at the Settings => Writing screen.

Entegeeka esoka eyo mukutu

Waliwo ebyokulonda bibiri:

  • When network-activated and when using a classic (non-block) theme, this plugin will set the classic editor as default and prevent site administrators and users from changing editors.
    The settings can be changed and default network-wide editor can be selected on the Network Settings screen.
  • When not network-activated each site administrator will be able to activate the plugin and choose options for their users.

Kiri mu lukalala lwa Block Editor olukulu, laba akafananyi kano.

Does this work with full site editing and block themes?

No, as block themes rely on blocks. See Block themes article for more information.

Going to be brutally honest here: the Gutenberg Editor is... not the greatest thing in the world.I'm not sure why WordPress made the Gutenberg editor the default; there was nothing wrong with the Classic Editor and I think WordPress should be shipped with both available options.I have not used the Gutenberg editor and I'll continue refusing to use it. I think WordPress, out of the box, should ship with both editors with users being able to choose which editor they would like to work with.I commend the developers for their hard work at wanting to make Gutenberg work, but for old school WordPress developers like me, I like using my own custom solutions in the projects I build; I developed my own custom fields layout builder with Advanced Custom Fields. It is just a better interface, look and feel, and flow.I hope this becomes a permanent plugin, let someone else maintain it in perpetuity, or a future version of WordPress ships with the option for users/developers to operate with Gutenberg or Classic Editor.The vast majority of WordPress users & developers did not ask for Gutenberg to be standard, and it is a wee bit insulting to those that use the platform that Gutenberg is the only option WordPress ships with currently.Nevertheless, long live the Classic Editor. It's just better.

The classic editor provides a familiar and easy to use WYSIWYG experience, I can't reccomend it enough as the best way to create content for Wordpress with the least hassle. "2024 or as long as is needed" is worryingly vague for those of us that find it essential for efficient working and it's notable that every year the vague end date is advanced a year. Please, either commit to a firm EOL for classic editor or drop the threat to get rid of it so that we know where we stand and can plan for the future. Also if you do decide to end support, will third parties be able to "take it over" or are breaking changes planned that would make it impossible to continue with Classic Editor? Switching to Gutenberg is not an option for me, the "Page builder" philosophy that underpins it's design is incompatible with the way that I like to work. I have tried it (and several other similar tools) on a number of occasions, the experience was not pleasant. I would rather migrate to a new platform than deal with Gutenberg on a day to day basis.
