I suppose it was inevitable.

My site has finally been flipped to the horrid new block editor.

So far, I’m not impressed.

And while I don’t rail at change in other areas of my life,  not having to think about formatting a blog has always been pleasant…. until now. I switched back to classic, but it still doesn’t let me space the way I want.

So does anyone like this new format?

Sing its praises and regale me with its infinite wonders if you do.

Because right now?

This is me:

  1. I actually don’t hate it now I’ve got used to it but I can’t see any particular advantages either. I probably would have stuck with the ‘classic’ editor if it was actually the same as the old editor but it quite obviously isn’t so it seemed a choice of learning how to use a new editor either way.

    1. It’s similar at least.
      But the whole thing smacks of if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. Why couldn’t they just have added a few new things to the existing one?
      Now please excuse me while I go yell at those kids to get off my lawn.

  2. I hate it. Just hate it. Why can’t I just write my blog in MSWord, and C/P it into the blog with all the formatting? Why do I need a left handed editor to post?
    Why? Because the geeks at WP really don’t care that their editors suck.
    Did I mention that I hate the new editor?

  3. That’s so strange, I was forced into the new block editor (after months of threats each time I logged on) over a week ago! I pretty much hate it. Yes, you can choose a “classic block” but it’s still not the same experience. Sometimes I can get my picture captions to be below the picture and permanent, which is what I want. Other times it seems to be a pop-up caption that the reader can only see if they hover their mouse over the picture. Ahhhh!!! Why couldn’t they leave well enough alone?!

  4. So I’m wondering if all these references to the “classic editor” mean the most recent default editor, which was “forced” on everyone beginning in 2015, or the editor that I know as THE Classic Editor, which was the default when I started blogging in 2011? I bookmarked that original Classic Editor when the first change was made five years ago, and it still works fine for me through two editor changes now. I haven’t even looked at this “block editor” before, and don’t think I want to…

      1. Probably the 2015 editor, and I can’t even remember what that piece of garbage was called. I think they refined it from the cesspool it was when it debuted, but I wouldn’t know since I never used it either…
