Hello Friends,

Which editor do you use for your Content pages or Blog posts?

Do you also use additional plugin / blocks to beautify or enhance your blog post ?

What challenges do you face with Gutenberg or Classic editors?

Thank you! Appreciate each one for your responses in advance.

I hate block editor with passion. It adds nonsense to code I don't want.

Always stick with classic. Option to insert and work with code directly gives more control in my opinion.

I actually installed plugin that disables block editor so me or my writers don't accidentally switch. Got 'em!

I used the classic at first but have started to like Gutenberg much more.

I don't write my content in WordPress, I use external tools. Which version I copy-paste it into is of very little relevance, But I prefer Gutenberg for that. Makes it easier and quicker to structure my content.

Do you feel, it's easier to work with 2 - columns or lists in Gutenberg? It seems tough for me in Gtb. And you need additional blocks (Plugins) for additional enhancements which makes the website bloated.

I don't even want to hear about Gutenberg. As soon as the "brains" at Wordpress force me to use the "new and improved" editor (ie Gutenberg) I will immediately and irrevocably switch to another CMS without remorse... or quit SEO altogether (yes, I AM that crazy)

Jolt.

I was feeling so low, thinking that technology is progressing at a fast pace..so as WordPress with their fresh version of Editors, and was gathering all the courage to learn this Gutenberg thingy.

But now, I feel much relieved after seeing fellow mates are still using Classic Editor.

While reading about classic Editor enhancements, I read about TinyMCE and Shortcode Ultimate.

They both kinda adds so much to Classic Editor.

Do you guys use any of those?

I use both... well, Shortcodes Ultimate mostly, but I used TinyMCE, as well.

And rest assured, there are many of us who are anti Gutenberg, we just like to stay hidden so we don't get the wrath of the sheep.... er.... masses :)

If Gutenberg was a person, I would have neg seo his sites to oblivion... Shit ass editor. And don't even get me started on their new widget thingy...OMG.. Thanks to them I developed a new reflex:

1- Install wordpress
2- Install classic editor and classic widget

There was a period I got super lazy with things and used a pagebuilder...
Which didn't last long (like a few months) before I rebuild each of those sites from scratch with Guttenberg and just stayed with it.

Your going to be happy soon that you made that decision, check my latest share on my profile posts, and read it. It´s going to be huge.

Whomever made the classic editor plugin is a God send. The block editor is more annoying than it’s worth and I like full basic control over the formatting of my content.

I’ve posted 1000s of articles from that classic editor format, I’ll never use the other one.
