    I do not have a link in my site sidebar to the classic dashboard. Is this is because my account is new? Or it is a bug?

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

    Hello WordPress? This is an important question.

    There is a widget feature you can drag into your sidebar > Meta. That includes a link to your classic dashboard.

    Also, if you click on My Site, in the top lefthand navigation bar on your site, a drop down menu will open, Click on WPAdmin, that is also opens your classic dashboard.

    In my lefhand navigation, on my new blog, there is no drop down menu. Adn I not talking about the blog sidebar, but the sidebar of the new dashbord (like this one: https://i1.wp.com/br.blog.files.wordpress.com/2015/11/menu-dashboard.png).

    Perhaps WordPress.com is abandoning the classic editor for new accounts. That’s right?

    I’m not sure why there isn’t a dropdown or a link to WP Admin in that menu. From your screenshot, your menu looks nothing like mine.

    I still use the Classic Dashboard, almost exclusively, but I’ve been a WP member over seven years. I haven’t read anything about new accounts not having access to the Classic Dashboard. Sorry I couldn’t help. Staff should be able to explain it better for you.

    It is not a screenshot of my menu, I just try to explain, whith this, about the sidebar.

    There are things that can only be made in the classic editor and I would like to have access to it faster (and not having to type the address).

    Thanks, ifmomsayok!

    Did you look for the META widget? You should be able to get to the directory of available widgets from either dashboard. Look for Customize in the bottom right corner.

    @karlosguedes here is a screenshot of my dropdown menu:

    https://thinspiralnotebook.files.wordpress.com/2016/01/screen-shot-2016-01-13-at-11-07-38-am.png

    Does your menu have any of those links?

    I have the same menu.
    If you click the WP Admin, it will show the new dashboard. But midle click will show you the classic one :)

    No, I do have this menu when I´m in my blog page. But I have in a blog where I´m an author.

    ifmomsayok, how the meta widget can help me? I can not put this in the sidebar of the new dashboard, just in the blog dashboar.

    banhgao, my side is similar to the photo that I linked, but without the link to the classic dashborad.

    This is your Admin dashboard lin https://pelafecatolica.wordpress.com/wp-admin/
    Bookmark it if you cannot remember it, or install the Meta widget.

    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://onecoolsite.wordpress.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://pelafecatolica.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post-new.php

    On the dashboard of your own blog at
    Dashboard > Posts > All Posts one can hover over any post title and click the Edit link. and proceed with editing.

    timethief, why I have to bookmark and others have the link in the “Beep Boop” editor?

    Thank you for stepping in @timethief, I felt like I was just making matters more complicated.

    A descktop

    (b) Exactly which browser (and version of it) you’re using by checking here if necessary http://supportdetails.com/

    The newest version of FireFox.

    (c) Exactly what you experience including exactly what any error reports you receive state.

    I do not have a link to the classic editor in my “Beep Boop” sidebar and, in my blog, I do not have the dropdown menu.

    Thanks!

    We all have two dashboards and two editors but Staff removed the link to the classic editor from the interface March 18, 2015. They did that to force newcomers to use their new Beep Beep Boop editor.

    If you cannot remember that the Admin dashboard link for every wordpress.com hosted blog is
    http://NAME_OF_BLOG. wordpress.com/wp-admin/
    or in your case
    http://pelafecatolica.wordpress.com/wp-admin/
    then bookmarking it makes sense.
