I don't know why WP introduced Gutenberg, I just created my account to appreciate this awesome plugin.

Bring back the classic editor as the default. Thankfully somebody developed this little life saver!

This Plugin is really good for those who had difficulties with this new Gutenberg interface, who knows why it was implemented in WordPress. However, despite being a very good alternative, it has a serious problem with inserting highlighted images in the posts. I hope the developers pay attention to this, because every time I need to insert an image, I have to disable the plugin to be able to post it. Apparently, it wasn't just me who noticed this problem. But it is an application that I recommend. However, it has this flaw that kills all the "magic" it provides.

The Classic Editor is so much easier to use than the new default editor Gutenberg. Whether you're a developer and need to write custom plugins or you're an end-user who is familiar with using MS Word or Google Docs, this is for you. It is simple to use, quick to learn, and easy to expand. After struggling with Gutenberg a few times, all of the WordPress based websites I build have this plugin installed by default. This way the customers can update their own sites with very little training and I don't have to wrestle with the editor performing content updates for them myself. The Classic Editor (tinyMCE) should be the default editor again.

The classic editor is much better than Gutenberg! I'm also experimenting with other plugins like "disable gutenberg", "wp downgrader" as my theme has the best block editor I've ever found built right in (Divi). Also started playing with classicpress, (the WordPress fork of version 4.9.x) and it's working (and listening to its users) like I would expect WordPress to do. If you can use MS word, you can use the classic editor!
