WordPress 5.0 is here!

The good news is that WordPress 5.0 is here. The bad news is that the new Guetenburg editor may break your editor. Fortunately, there is an easy fix.

Along with the release of WordPress 5.0, a new plugin, the Classic Editor Plugin was also released. Here's a description of the Classic Editor Plugin from the WordPress Plugin Repository:

Classic Editor is an official plugin maintained by the WordPress team that restores the previous (“classic”) WordPress editor and the “Edit Post” screen. It makes it possible to use plugins that extend that screen, add old-style meta boxes, or otherwise depend on the previous editor. By default, this plugin hides all functionality available in the new Block Editor (“Gutenberg”).

For more details, see the Classic Plugin page in the WordPress Plugin Repository:

  2. After logging in, navigate to the Plugins page and click on Add New.
