Dear WordPress …

Yes, I realize the Old WP Editor is deficient in a few ways … so I really tried to give your New Editor an honest try – and hoped it would be good. It does look like it might be? BUT I can’t figure out how to use it!?! And after several hours of frustration, I really had to give up. Frankly I wasn’t that great with the old one, but I have figured out how to get most things done. You know, initially, I think a lot of us Bloggers that over came here because we couldn’t figure out how to build Webpages. So this was a nice alternative. And I’m guessing there’s a huge Tutorial around here somewhere showing how to use the New Editor … and I might even look that up? But again, I can get this thing done with the Old Editor.

Thank You. 

See?

    It’s not that I can’t use the block editor. I can. I don’t LIKE it, but I can use it. But using is greatly alters the style in which I write and THAT I cannot deal with.

      Ah … OK. I bet a few others feel that way too. I haven’t got to that point yet because I can’t figure it out.

    The problem for me with the “block” editor is that it requires you work the way they want you to work — which isn’t anything like I normally work. And that is no-go for me.

    Tried twice to leave a comment. No comment left. I did my best.

      Could be something that I did in settings??? But I didn’t do anything. Hope it shows now.

    I share your sentiment, wholly . . . https://jericsmith.com/2020/10/05/dear-wordpress-your-new-editor-is-terrible/

      Thank you. We will prevail. I think.

    A lot of people are frustrated. I dislike it, but I try for practice. I am hoping it will grow on me.

      When I figure it out I think it will be good. Don’t know when that will happen though.

    I am not sure about the new word press editor. I have been trying to learn how the block editing sets work. I did have some problems trying to post pictures on my new blog post and I had to look in a few different areas in side bar. I did find the area to go and insert a picture under the media side bar. I am slowly learning how to use the new editor.

      There is an option to download the Old Editor and install it. I did this. I’ll still try the new one, but at least I can get something done right now.

      There is a widget of the Old Editor you can download and install. I did it. I’m back in business.
