Dear WordPress – I hate your block editor

Dear WordPress,

I hate your new block editor “upgrade”! It’s one reason why I post less often here, have started a blog elsewhere, and why I’ve accidentally deleted paragraphs and had to frigging copy paste my text elsewhere and re-copy it back. I still haven’t posted an entry that would have taken me 10-20 minutes, but has now taken 45 minutes because I keep inadvertently deleting a whole paragraph instead of just selected words!

Argh! If I could figure out how to go back to the other editor, I would. It’s not a complex post, and it only has one uploaded image.

Are other people having this problem? I guess I always assume it’s me, because I’m impatient with technology most of the time. But it really seems to be SO much less user friendly than the way I used to post, and choose a photos, etc.

It may be time for me to have lunch, take a break from my computer and come back to the other post I started an hour ago before I got too frustrated…

Deep breathing usually helps.

  1. I am so with you on this! Microsoft and the WP block editor – the banes of my existence. But there is a way to keep using the “Classic Editor.” If you go to the All Posts page you will see by the “Add New” button there is a small arrow for a dropdown menu. There you can select the Classic Editor. Good luck on your book, BTW!
