I’m back on WordPress this week after my break and I’ve noticed a few folks commenting about the new editor.
I couldn’t come to grips with the old ‘new’ editor myself, 😉 so I’ve been using the old one all along. For me the old ‘new’ one was unworkable and for now I still have an option, so I thought I’d share it with you. I hope it might work for you too.
A very sunny day in historic Milthorpe… more on this in another post.
As far as I know, there are 2 possible ways of getting to the old editor, depending on your site. You are aiming to get to the WP Admin menu.
I will say that I don’t know if this works for custom urls (your address) or for wordpress.org, but you might still be able to use your wordpress.com address maybe?
- Step 1 – Hover on My Sites (top left) and it may bring up a menu. If it does, you’re looking to click on WP Admin. If it’s not there or you can’t do this go to step 2. If it is there… Click on Posts Add New….
- Step 2 – Go to your URL address bar – where you type in your blog address eg: http etc robynsfineart.wordpress.com. Once you are there, type in after your blog address /wp-admin (eg:http etc robynsfineart.wordpress.com/wp-admin) …and click. This should bring up the old WP menu with Home, Store, Posts, Settings etc. Click on Posts, Add New. You should now be in the Old Post Editor.
Good luck trying this out. I do hope it works for you. It’s certainly worth a try if you prefer the old editor.
