Panicking Not Allowed!

From next Monday, the 1st June, the Block Editor will become the new WordPress default editor. After reading the comments from blogging friends and colleagues, it became clear that for some, there is still a degree of uneasiness and hesitation. Therefore, Nan’s Farm is re-blogging our Weekly Prompts post where we have attempted to alleviate some of the concerns. Included in that post is our simple guide to the Block Editor.

A Simple Guide to the Block Editor

Today’s post was written in response to the concerns of several blogging colleagues. PLEASE NOTE: Comments are enabled on this post, and a downloadable and printable Guide to the Block Editor is available at the end of the page.

First, you should know that the Classic Editor is not disappearing, all that is happening is that the Gutenberg, the Block Editor, will become the default editor on June 1st. At the same time, WordPress will provide a link to the Classic Editor. Presumably, we will need to open a new page to access the link. We’re told the Classic will be around until at least 2022.

  1. I love the classic mode, I’ve always found it easy to use. I did try Gutenberg, but could not get on with it. Maybe deep down I’m one of those people that do not like change? I will have to give it another go. Thank you for the advice, Sue.

    1. I’m with you, Trev, I like the Classic too. I think the Blocks have improved, and I think images and galleries are easy to work with. But I see no reason why there can’t be a mixture of both seeing as the old Classic is now a block. Thank you, Trev.

  2. Sue, Today is my lucky day. I found your blog. I’m in a panic over this new block change. I attempted to use the new system and discovered why it’s called block. Everything I did was BLOCKED. I will print out as you suggested. Thanks for the info. Claudia . . . justsaying

      1. You’re welcome, Sue! 🙂

        If I give the new WP stuff a whirl and I have trouble…instead of panicking I’ll go picnicking in my back yard. 😉 😀 😛

        Then I’ll reread what you said and I’ll try it again. With your great help I will figure it out. 🙂

    1. It’s improved hasn’t it? I will continue to use Blocks, but for speed I think I might end up using the old Classic Block for text input, and image blocks for adding photos, I like what it does with images. Thank you, Tony.
