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 Edita pulagini ya WordPress mu butongole, era ejja kulabirirwa mpaka omwaka 2022, oba nga bwe kisanidde.

Awasokelwa, eno pulagini eyongera ko bino wamanga:

  • Abalabirizi bo mutimbagano basobola oku londa edita esokelwa ko abakozessa bonna.
  • Abalabirizi basobola okukiriza abakozessa okukyusa edita esokelwa ko.
  • Ngaomukozessa akiriziddwa, asobola okukyusa edita ku kiwandiiko kyona.
  • Buli kiwandiko kiggulibwa mu edita eyasembeyo okozessebwa nga tosinzidde ku yasembyeyo okuwanidika. Kino kikulu nnyo oku letta enkola enunggamu mu kuwandiika.

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.

By default, this plugin hides all functionality available in the new block editor (“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.

  • The "Switch to classic editor" link.


Entegeeka esoka

When activated 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 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.

Cannot find the “Switch to classic editor” link

It is in the main block editor menu, see this screenshot.

For the last couple of months, every few days, I would commit myself to sort out why I could not longer post new events to The Events Calendar. I followed every proposed solution I could find. Tonight I finally found the issue - conflict with Guttenberg. I found this plug-in, installed it, and immediately was able to create new events. I had gone through all the suggested troubleshooting steps including disabling every single plug-in I use, activated each one by one, tested creating a new event with each activation, all to sort out where the conflict was. It never dawned on me that the conflict would be with the ever reliable WordPress. I now have a lot of catching up to do. How in the world can this happen? I am not a developer so I could not even begin to sort that out, I will leave that to minds a lot brighter than mine. THANK YOU for this plug-in!
