    Morning :)

    Is the missing option with in the new block-style editor, Gutenberg? Just clarifying so I know which team to make the report with – Appreciate the feedback.


    In reply to: Blogging

    Hi there,

    Seems like your site is not hosted on WordPress.com but a self-hosted WordPress site. See the differences between the two here.


    You could be editing your post using the Gutenberg editor. To change the text color, please follow the steps below.

    In the future, if you need help on your self-hosted site, please post your question at the WordPress.org support forum.

    For the Gutenberg editor question, you may post them at the Gutenberg plugin support forum.


    Howdy –

    Thanks for the feedback. I just want to clarify that this is happening with the Gutenberg editor only? If you include images in the body of your post with the traditional editor things come through the email notification properly?



    OOOOOHHH!!!! Thank you so much for pointing out the “Add New” dropdown at the top, from where I can select Classic to start! I had never noticed that and thought I had no choice but to start via Gutenberg by clicking “Add New” in the left-hand frame. Then being forced to toggle back and forth between G and Classic. That alone is such a huge help thank you. Hopefully they will leave that there for us permanently!

    And I will go to the G plugin support forum as you suggest to see if I can find out anything else or contribute as you say with new info =)

    Thank you again for doing all you could to help. Much appreciated.


    I can totally understand the frustration especially when we’re trying to get things done quickly but we don’t have an idea on how it works on the new user interface.

    I think the theme of the site you’re working on is not the original Twenty Seventeen theme. It’s using a child theme of Twenty Seventeen, which means that the theme is modified and customized for the site. Sometimes these modifications could cause incompatibility with Gutenberg. Not all themes are Gutenberg-friendly now.

    If you’re uncomfortable to use Gutenberg for the editing now, you can edit the post using the Classic Editor for now.

    If you need more help on Gutenberg, I would suggest to get help from the Gutenberg plugin support forum. Who knows maybe you discovered a new bug and end up contributed to the WordPress community? :)

    I’m sorry that I couldn’t help much on this. I do hope you’re able to get things done with the Classic Editor for now.

    – To edit post/page using Classic Editor, hover over the post/page that you wish to edit on the All Pages/All Posts screen and click Classic Editor link.
    – To start a new post/page using Classic Editor, at the All Pages/All Posts screen, click the down arrow at the Add New button and choose Classic Editor.

    Best of luck!



    Thanks for still trying to help. I’m tearing my hair out at this point! It’s the title of the post, I can’t see here where to attach a screenshot but it’s like this:

    Costa Rica Beaches, Volcano & Rainforest Adventure

    This Central American gem should be on every Bucket List…..blahblahblah

    The “Costa Rica” title needs to be linked out to the deal page on another site. In Classic WordPress this was a “Page Links To” option right below the body copy. Now in Gutenberg that is gone and I can find no way to do it other than to toggle back to Classic, which I have to do after every save. It’s insane that there is no way to link out a title! I don’t want to link some words in the body. The whole title needs to link out. The site is https://traveldealsandnews.com/ and I have no idea where it is hosted. I am doing some freelance work for the site owner and I guess about a month ago when I logged into WP I encountered this Gutenberg with no explanation or tutorials, and he doesn’t know anything about this new system. I think maybe he didn’t even know of the change until I told him. I’m so frustrated!


    The Title you mentioned is it the post/page title or the heading in the post/page? Is it something like this screenshot?

    By the way, could you share your site address? If you’re using the self-hosted WordPress version, there’s a better place to seek help for Gutenberg as this is the support forum for sites hosted on WordPress.com.

    Hi lupuldacilor,

    1. Go to https://lupuldacilor.wordpress.com/wp-admin
    2. At the top right of the screen, click Screen Options
    3. Check the box New Editor (a box about Gutenberg should appear below)
    4. In the box that just appeared, click Deactivate Gutenberg

    If you only have the button Activate Gutenberg, then it means it’s not activated. :)


    I do not know where to delete it.
    Thank you


    OK. But just for anyone else who bumps into this thread in the future can I apologize and explain that I assumed all dashboards were the same and people would see what I was seeing. Once Gutenberg is activated in wp-admin you’re stuck with it and I can only reach the classic editor by the link shown in this screenshot: https://cld.wthms.co/Y1Y7bi


    In reply to: New editor

    I’m frustrated to find that once you’ve activated Gutenberg you’re stuck with it. I assumed that unticking “new editor” in screen options would remove it from the wp-admin New posts black lefthand menu, but it doesn’t. You can only reach the classic editor in the future via the link shown in this screenshot: https://cld.wthms.co/Y1Y7bi


    Hi there,

    To add a link to any text to an external URL on Gutenberg, see the steps in the image below.

    For images, after you’ve added the image block, you can add the custom link at the Link Settings. Choose Custom URL at the Link To drop-down list and enter the link at the Link URL textbox.


    @bateau4u I’m pleased to hear that your issues are resolved and I wish you good health.

    @melancholia Thanks for confirming that you also see things differently to me. No wonder I confused @bateau4u . On my older sites (although I have “new editor” unticked in screen options) /wp-admin/post-new.php looks like Gutenberg to me and the “Copy a post” feature still isn’t working. Other newer test sites of mine display the same URL yet show the classic editor. Those sites don’t have the dropdown arrow to reach the classic editor found on my older sites either. If I have missed some tickbox to keep things how they used to be on my main site I’d really like someone to tell me what I’m doing wrong.

    In WordPress classic, I have the VERY SIMPLE OPTION to click ‘custom link’ to have the page title or image link out somewhere beyond my page. In Gutenberg, I can find no way to do this. I’m stuck constantly toggling back and forth between Gutenberg and Classic to get every post completed. Very frustrating. Maybe it’s one of the endless blocks I’m supposed to add, but nothing pops out at me as obvious or easy to identify and use for this purpose. HELP PLEASE. Also, I tried to download the Classic Plugin but it doesn’t work, so I need to figure out how to do this simple task in Gutenberg,



    But if you use what used to be the /wp-admin post editor via the black lefthand menu (that has recently been “improved” and is now Gutenberg and not the classic editor)

    The Old Editor that you continue to access was UPDATED sometime between Sep 23, 2018 and Sep 30, 2018 and is now no longer the Old Editor.

    Weird. Clearly we see completely different things. If I click Posts — Add New in the black left-hand menu of any of my WordPress.com blogs, I still get the classic editor, not Gutenberg. (Gutenberg is very distinctive and I would expect that someone like bateau4u, who is used to the classic editor, would definitely know if they were no longer using the classic editor.)

    Hi Sally,

    Since your site is hosted on WordPress.com, you don’t need to install any plugin or adjust any settings. When Gutenberg is fully integrated in version 5.0 you can always use the Classic Editor by selecting it from the drop-down menu of the Posts page. Here’s a screenshot to make things easier:


    If you have any other questions, just let me know and I’ll be happy to help.


    Topic: Gutenberg

    in forum Support

    There seems to be some conflicting advice about Gutenberg. I understand that it is to be implemented on November 19th for 5.0. I am on a free blog and to be honest would prefer to stay on the classic editor. I post four or five times a day and mostly in a set format. Some people say that to use the plug in that keeps the classic editor you need to upgrade. Can you please let me know what my options are. Most of the articles are written by tech minded people for tech minded people. For the vast majority of those who are more mature… the whole thing sounds petrifying and I have already heard people saying they won’t continue. Appreciate some clarity please. thanks Sally



    I typically resist change but decided to dive into Gutenberg. Little by little my fears are being alleviated and overall I like it.

    Colored titles … an easy fix with CSS (and I’m NOT super techy!)

      h2, h3, h4, h5, h6 {
      color: #00ccff;

    Inserting video through gutenberg was my challenge today. Couldn’t do it with gutenberg… had to go back to the classic editor to add it.

    Wishlist … I wish you could just color individual words in a text block as opposed to being limited to applying a color to the entire block. I suppose I could go back to the classic editor for this feature… but I’m not gonna constantly go back & forth.

    Overall…. we’re movin’ ahead.



    I’ve figured out the issue.

    The WordPress site I’m working on (https://www.esc.org/) uses the Carrington theme. For whatever reason, upgrading WP to the new Gutenberg editor ignores most of the content on the front page while editing. Switching back to the Classic editor allows you to edit the entire front page once again.

    I’m building a new theme for the site, so hopefully Gutenberg won’t be an issue, but it does set a worrying precedent where older themes may not be compatible with the editor.
