No contact form editor in new editor

    I have pages with contact forms. If I’m logged in at WordPress, and go to one of them, it displays an “Edit” link at the bottom. When I click on this I’m taken to the new editor with the page displayed. — But the new editor does not contain the contact form editor! So I have to navigate to the “classic”editor manually.

    This is poorly done. I’ve been using WordPress five years and this introduction of the new editor is the one and only thing that’s been botched in that time.

    The blog I need help with is



    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 viewing stats see here > Navigating the Classic WordPress.COM interface

    On the dashboard of your own blog at
    Dashboard > Posts > All Posts > Add New is where to create posts in the classic editor. 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.

    The Classic Editor will continue to exist in wp-admin. We know some users prefer to use this editor, so we want you to have access to it, instead of phasing it out with the new version of the Dashboard. However, a link to the Classic Editor will not return to the New Editor.
