Ok, I admit, parties aren’t really my thing. (Introvert, remember?) A few days ago, when I was upgrading my WP account, I discovered that I am not using the ‘block editor’.
I’m a WP user from waaaay back, and I remember when the editor looked like this:
So, since my new editor looks like this:
I thought I was using the new block editor.
Apparently, that’s the ‘Classic editor.’
The NEW block editor looks like this:
I tried writing this post in the actual NEW block editor, and it made me want to pull my hair out. Now, I’m all for learning new things, but it’s always scary to do this on your blog/website. Because you never know what it will do to your old content. Maybe nothing? Or maybe it will break everything?
I mean, unless I’m updating old posts for some reason, after switching to the the new editor, it shouldn’t change anything, right?
The new editor does look like it has some cool features, but it also was frustrating trying to search around and find things, since everything seems to be moved around.
I’m also debating getting a new theme (now that I upgraded and have access to more), but I have the same fear – that changing the theme will somehow break some of the old content. What to do, what to do.
Are you using the new block editor? Any tips/tricks/horror stories you’d like to share?
