How can I find out if my blog has a Gutenberg-friendly theme?
Topic: Classic Editor?
I loathe Gutenberg. I don’t want to use the ‘classic block’ I want to use the real classic editor that doesn’t involve blocks. How can I do this?
I am moving my site here from another host, and I know from experience on my WP sites that I host on my own domain, that copy/paste into blocks creates nothing but headaches. The formatting falls apart… it’s just awful. There, I can disable Gutenberg with a plugin, but I’m not paying for this site, so a plugin isn’t an option.
How do I get the real classic editor on my free WP backend, instead of the awful blocks? I loved the classic editor; it was so easy to use. The blocks? Not so much.
Topic: Gutenberg Block-based editor
I just learned that plans are for the ‘classic editor’ to only be supported through 2022. I wanted to let you know that as an experienced IT professional who uses WordPress to manage my personal websites, I consider this to be a fatal step in the wrong direction.
I selected WordPress primarily because its editor (the classic editor) while imperfect, provides the right balance between a WYSIWYG content creation and near-html fine tuning. In short, I can have my cake and eat it to by quickly drafting a page or post, then in most cases, easily switching to code view to apply needed code-level tweaks.
While the new editor has this ability in principle, in practice it’s more a choice between an training-wheel (block-based) editor that is 100% an encumberance and nuisance, and just coding the page in html.
That’s not a choice I can live with, and worse, the new editor buries the toggle between the two editors. Honestly, I just cannot see maintaining a website long term using the new editor, and I suspect that if you look into the number of users who are using the ‘classic editor’ plug-in, you’ll find I’m not alone.
‘Block-based’ editors are like the alphabetically arranges keyboards used on typewriters in the 19th century. They made something inherently complex easier to teach to amateurs, but utterly useless to professionals.
I hope you will re-think this direction.
I have a really weird problem. I inherited my wordpress settings from previous owner, so with it came a lot of issues and legacies.
My wordpress version is 5.3.2, but I don’t have Gutenberg editor, and I don’t have any plugins that turn it off either. The reason why I need that editor so badly is because my Theme “Newspaper by tagDiv” requires it to make mobile plugin work (mobile version of my website has insane lags – 15-30 score on pagespeed).
I need either help with installing \ enabling Gutenberg or how to optimize my mobile version without losing functionality.
This feels slightly confusing to type out so bear with me!
When I upload an image to WordPress (either in the Media Library directly or mid post), the image appears to be the width of my text within the editor. When I preview or publish a post, the image has shrunk to be smaller than the width of my text. I don’t know why this is happening (but I think it started with Gutenberg) and I don’t know how to fix it.
I tried editing the image to be ‘full’ sized. It didn’t work. FYI all of my images are high quality and wider than the text width (750px).

I get ‘A post type mismatch has been detected.’ when I try to post or save a draft
I am running WordPress 5.3.2 with the Scaffold theme.
My site was working, but stopped working when I upgraded to 5.3.2
I also upgraded the Gutenberg plugin.
I have disabled all my plugins and that didn’t change anything.
Help! I can’t post to my blog.
All of the font in my Gutenberg editor has gone from white to black.
To be clear, my theme’s font color is set to white, and while previewing the post it appears correctly.
I also have an issue with not being able to edit blocks until I delete them and hit ctrl+z, only then can I edit the content. Hitting ctrl+z also takes me to the last edit location which is quite annoying when it’s 10,000 words down. This isn’t always the case, sometimes blocks are editable.
Can anyone help with either of these issues?
This blog was created some years ago by my associates. Recently I have had trouble actually posting on it, as I am permitted to do so. What I need is some simple explanation I
in layman’s language of the procedure using the classical mod,e not Gutenberg which I find intractable . Most information I’ve come across baffles me, the technical jargon particularly. I can not believe I am alone with this problem; but what is the answer?
Recently I have switched from the Gutenberg editor to the Classic Editor just to try, but I didn’t get it, so I want to switch back the Gutenberg editor, but I am not finding where I can do that! When I go to a single post editor page, I don’t have the ‘…’ at the right top to change the editor!! Help please!!
