With the new version of WordPress comes a new and updated content creation experience. The traditional “what-you-see-is-what-you-get” text editor has been replaced with a new block-based page building editor codenamed “Gutenberg.” This gives you, as a WordPress content creator, more flexibility and control over the look and layout of your site than ever before. For further info please see this excellent primer video on Lynda.com.
Not ready to switch?
If you are a site admin and feel you or your site contributors are not ready to move to the new editor, the “Classic” editor can be restored for you on a site-by-site basis. Please fill out the form linked below with the full URL of the site to request the Classic editor.
