How to Get Back to Classic Editor – WordPress Annoying Blocks Update

I’m not someone who likes technology updates and changes to start with. Although I might whine, I quickly adapt to the changes and forget I was even ever annoyed at some point.

So, when WordPress decided to update on December 6, 2018 to their new blocks layout for publishing posts and pages, I was less than impressed.

At first I thought that I probably just needed to get used to it, but after a week, I was ready to throw my computer across the room. I personally feel this update has a lot of glitches. Sometimes I couldn’t get back to the article title and sometimes the HTML wouldn’t work correctly. It was a nightmare.

Being someone who owns and manages hundreds of websites (affiliate sites as well as my company, I didn’t have time to go through the growing pains with WordPress’s new blocks update of 2018.


I figured there had to be a way to turn back time. The new update was majorly slowing down productivity time for myself and everyone on my team. And it wasn’t ironing itself out like most technological updates do. So I found a way to get back to WordPress classic editor and I’m sure you might want to, too! So here it is:
