Updating WordPress to version 4.0 comes with so many exciting features. One of them include the new improved WordPress writing box or editor.
Now not everyone loves new things. The principle of “if something is not broken don’t fix it” comes to play. Some of us are so acquitted with the old dashboard, hate the new WordPress editor and want the old editor back even though we want to enjoy the other cool features that came with WordPress 4 (and 5).
To revert to old WordPress editor or classic editor, simply install the Classic Editor plugin from your WordPress dashboard.
Activate and you’re back to old WordPress editor. It doesn’t come with setup or anything so it’s plug and play.
To start using the new WordPress editor again simply deactivate the Classic Editor plugin from your plugin page.
