Default Classic Editor
Default Classic Editor is a plugin maintained by the paramjeet 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.
Default Classic Editor is a WordPress plugin, and will be fully supported and maintained until at least 2022, or as long as is necessary.
At a glance, this plugin adds the following:
Administrators can select the default editor for all users.
Administrators can allow users to change their default editor.
When allowed, the users can choose which editor to use for each post.
Each post opens in the last editor used regardless of who edited it last. This is important for maintaining a consistent experience when editing content.
In addition, the Default Classic Editor plugin includes several filters that let other plugins control the settings, and the editor choice per post and per post type.
Living in terror of the release of the new Gutenberg monster. Thank the gods for this plugin author who has the insight to make this plugin.
I can see I’ll be using this plugin all the time. Thank you 🙂
