WordPress 5 Introduces a New Editor

Those who have upgraded to WordPress 5 may have noticed a radical change to its editor.  The new editor, known as “Gutenberg,” allows for a more modern site design using a new design technique called “blocks.”  More information on Gutenberg can be found on its WordPress reference site.

Unfortunately, having a new editor does require additional training, and tutorials will need time to catch up.  In the meantime, WordPress has established the Classic Editor plugin, which we recommend to all WordPress users until they have the opportunity to learn Gutenberg.

Adding the Classic Editor can be done via the Plugins section, using the “Add New” button, searching for “Classic Editor,” clicking the “Install Now” button, and finally clicking the “Activate” button.
