Classic Editor

    For some reason, the classic editor on wordpress.com is now gone. There used to be a button to switch to it, and I can no longer find that either.

    Does anyone know how to switch to classic view on wordpress.com?

    I elect to pay the larger price of service with wordpress.com due to the extra security no other hosting service could offer me.

    Thank you and regards to all that can offer help.

    What is the URL of the site you refer to please?

    #2516348

    Pardon? I am confused? I mean my personal wordpress.com site cannot obtain the classic editor, either in safari or firefox? Does the actual URL matter, if it’s a global issue?

    Pardon me if I seem confused by the question.

    I saw you attempted to answer this in another forum, which is now closed, and none of those methods work. I even cleared all of my cookies in firefox in an attempt to restore the classic editor. Nothing. Even hovering over the title did not work.

    The link you refer to was removed on March 18th, 2015 and will not be provided again.

    The Admin login link for every blog hosted by wordpress.COM is:
    http://NAME_OF_BLOG.wordpress.com/wp-admin/

    You cannot deactivate the new Beep Beep Boop editor but you do not have to use it.

    You have posted several threads in the past https://en.forums.wordpress.com/profile/neonplasticlotus but have never stated exactly what your URL is. As 30% of those who post here every day ought to be posting to http://wordpress.ORG/support because we do not provide support for wordpress.ORG software installs I require the URL of the site you refer to in order to provide accurate answers. Post it now please.

    WordPress.COM and WordPress.ORG are completely separate and have different username accounts, logins, features, run different versions of some themes with the same names, and have separate support documentation and separate support forums. Read the differences here http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    If you don’t have a username account at WordPress.ORG account, then click http://wordpress.org/support/ and register one on the top right hand corner of the page that opens, https://wordpress.org/support/register.php so you can post to the support forums there.

    I elect to pay the larger price of service with wordpress.com due to the extra security no other hosting service could offer me.

    There is no extra security when one purchase upgrades from wordpress.COM for a wordpress.COM hosted site so I do not know what you are referring to.

    I believe i stated above that my site is HOSTED by wordpress.com

    My site is spammed every day, therefore wordpress filters that. It’s called security.

    The “onecoolsite” link does not work. If I could post images here, I would show you what it brings up, which is a general page, with links to other “related” pages.

    If it’s your page, it’s been hacked.

    Again, considering it is a GLOBAL issue of wordpress.com hosted sites, my URL should not matter (though it’s a paid for site, hosted by wordpress.com) as the solution should be a GENERAL solution.

    correction:

    The “onecoolsite” does not work in firefox. As I am attempting to edit in firefox, that’s still an issue.

    However, now that I can access the site in safari, I am now able to obtain the classic editor in firefox, due to the now accurate description given above. I’ve no idea what happened to the link on your closed forum topic.
