Some of you may not be aware that the Classic Editor has retired. It retired on the 11th August, you may not have noticed because its disappearance from our sites is to be a gradual phase-out.
Back in May, we were told that the Classic Editor (not the Classic incorporated within the Block Editor) would no longer be the default WordPress Editor, however, we were assured it would be available for our use for a further two years. That is no longer the case. It’s not all doom and gloom. There are two remaining Classic editors.

Some bloggers will be disappointed by this change, as are we, and I’ve no doubt there’ll be those who’ll come out kicking and screaming, but can I please ask, DONT SHOOT THE MESSENGER, I might not be as polite next time!
There’s little point ranting about it, it is what it is, so we might as well put our energies to better use. Apparently, we should look out for our individual e-mails telling us when to expect our site to be switched over to the Block Editor!
In the meantime, this link tells us what to expect. Access Here
