WordPress just updated their software and I hate it! They did a complete revamp of the editor and packed it with unnecessary features. It does exactly what it used to, besides the SEO features, so I don't know what the real purpose of all of that was. My site runs on WordPress so I'll be downloading and installing the classic editor.

How do you guys feel about the update?

Can't really understand it yet so I've installed the old one (via a mod).

I don't like it as well, If ain't broke don't fix it really applies in this case. I hate the big space between the blocks, I wish they left the classic page editor alone. how did you guys get the classic editor back? what mod did you use Jason?

I hate it as well. The biggest problem for me is that some of the plugins that I have do not work with the new editor so the buttons are missing. I wouldn't mind learning more about it but if it doesn't work properly, it's not much help.

What might be good about it? I mean, they wouldn't make a new one for no reason!

Well, it allows the use of modules. So before, you had to get a separate (usually paid) plugin to be able to add columns etc. Now, you can do that with the in built WP editor.

It's the same thing that I did as well. The old editor was so much better and I'm glad that they have it available as a plugin otherwise we would all be in trouble.

BTW, ignore the idiot that quoted you.

I'm using the old editor at the moment because it's what I am used to and I can find everything I want pretty easily. However, at some point in the future, I'm going to remove the plugin for the classic editor and then start to use the new WordPress editor because it does have some decent features including the ability to separate a post into multiple pages.
