Folks this is a call for help with WordPress. Yes, after all this time.
If you like the block editor, you can disregard this post and skip commenting. If you have work-arounds that will help me, read on…
For some reason, with this new computer, I am inexplicably back to full block editor on WP. This shouldn’t be, as WP is web-based (I know this), but I’d believe there’s a Mac-WP conspiracy that reset something to make my life difficult. I haven’t changed anything myself, anyway.
I Googled how to do it and it’s all plug-ins or adding code somewhere, and I will do neither thing because I am a tech wizard (sarcasm) and would probably crash the site.
I mostly just want to get rid of that damn pop-up toolbar everywhere when creating new posts, the one that (completely) visually blocks text so you can’t see what you just wrote (which is garbage) and you have to extra-click away just to be able to see what you just wrote (which is a terrible user experience). Worse when you want to go back and add something in an earlier block. Brutal.
Under the + sign on the top left I saw a thing called Classic, is that all it is? In my fragmented memory, I know some of you had pro user tips on how to make this WP experience better, I just can’t remember what they were or if it really is that simple.
Drop your pro user tip in the comments! Please!
