    Why use it at all? I don’t. You cannot deactivate the new Beep Beep Boop editor but you do not have to use it. For locating the ways and means of accessing the legacy or classic pages for creating posts, editing posts, and for viewing stats see here > Navigating the Classic WordPress.COM interface http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2015/04/05/navigating-the-classic-wordpress-com-interface/

    On the dashboard of your own blog at
    Dashboard > Posts > All Posts > Add New
    To create posts in the classic editor for you that link is http://stoutstandards.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post-new.php

    If you have cookies enabled on your browser your preference will be saved unless or until your clear your cookies, and it will take you to the classic editor automatically every time you create a new post via the drop-down menu in the black admin bar or edit a post via the edit button on the blog itself.

    To use the classic editor when you edit posts,
    go the Posts -> All Posts menu, hover over the post title and click the Edit link.

    I’m having exactly the same problem. No matter which way I try to open up a new post, it won’t let me. Just does the ‘Beep beep boop’ thing. What’s going on???

    The blog is http://www.thetwistedyarn.com

    I’m having a similar issue when creating a NEW post… it keeps sitting on the “beep beep boop” message….

    Okay then. I notice that all three of you are using old themes, Pilcrow and Coraline. Maybe that’s a factor or maybe not.

    Same problem. Endless “beep, bop” silliness. (By the way, whose idea was THAT?)

    Timethief, thank you for trying to help. (I sooooooo need to do a blog post tonight…)

    I made a free account earlier today with the intent of taking my current blog from tumblr to wordpress. After registering and setting up my basic account, I am unable to make new posts. It simply stats beep beep boop endlessly. I tried clearing my cache as was mentioned on one of the forums. It did nothing.

    The blog I need help with is cantsleepblogblog.wordpress.com.

    Same problem, I am using Veggie theme…

    #2478439

    Same problem. I can’t create a new post or edit an old one. I have three sites, all different themes, all the same problem.

    Same issue, using Baskerville theme

    I’ve had some problems opening a draft. But I figured a strange workaround by hitting “preview” first, scrolling to the bottom of the resulting page, and then hitting “edit”.

    Try
    http://<yourblogname&gt;.wordpress.com/wp-admin/edit.php
    as suggested by timethief, it is working for me.

    It never ceases to amaze me that I provide instructions and people do not use them. I’m so glad you are up and running.

    To use the classic editor to create posts,
    go to Dashboard > Posts > Add New
    Here is the model so you can see the format
    http://INSERT_NAME_OF_YOUR_BLOG_HERE/wp-admin/post-new.php

    Note that you can bookmark that link.

    To use the classic editor when you edit posts,
    go the Posts -> All Posts menu, hover over the post title and click the Edit link.

    I understand what you are saying…..the point I was trying to make is why do we have to use a workaround? What happened to the “usual” way?

    I made no changes, and it is working again.
