Editor clássico


Classic Editor is an official plugin maintained by the WordPress team that restores the previous (“classic”) WordPress editor and the “Edit Post” screen. It makes it possible to use plugins that extend that screen, add old-style meta boxes, or otherwise depend on the previous editor.

Classic Editor is an official WordPress plugin, and will be fully supported and maintained until at least 2022, or as long as is necessary.

De modo geral, este plugin acrescenta o seguinte:

  • Os administradores podem selecionar o editor padrão para todos os usuários.
  • Os administradores podem permitir que os usuários modifiquem seu editor padrão.
  • Quando permitido, os usuários podem selecionar que editor usar para cada post.
  • Cada post é aberto no último editor usado, independente de quem o editou por último. Isto é importante para manter uma experiência uniforme ao editar o conteúdo.

Além disso, o plugin Editor Clássico inclui vários filtros que permitem que outros plugins controlem as configurações e a escolha do editor por post e por tipo de post.

By default, this plugin hides all functionality available in the new Block Editor (“Gutenberg”).

Default settings

When activated this plugin will restore the previous (“classic”) WordPress editor and hide the new Block Editor (“Gutenberg”).
These settings can be changed at the Settings => Writing screen.

Default settings for network installation

There are two options:

  • When network-activated this plugin will set the Classic Editor as default and prevent site administrators and users from changing editors.
    The settings can be changed and default network-wide editor can be selected on the Network Settings screen.
  • When not network-activated each site administrator will be able to activate the plugin and choose options for their users.
Cannot find the “Switch to Classic Editor” link

It is in the main Block Editor menu, see this screenshot.


Lovely Plugin

I was literally confused when gutenburg was published but this plugin helps me a lot with previous classic editor option.. Thanks for providing an amazing plugins..

Please keep classic

I'm not ready for Gutenberg. I already have overly complicated tools for visual editing, if I want them, and generally I don't want them. Please keep the classic editor as part of core WP!

5 Stars

I love how user-friendly, usable, and so necessary for anyone using WordPress. I can easily do everything that needs to be done, I can clearly magnify the text, I see the word count and it isn't hidden, coding is super easy, and the best of all there are no unneeded blocks. Why fix something that isn't broken and already perfect? It does everything it needs to do without messing up and making WordPress unusable.
