Hi! I wanted to bring it to your attention that most of my blogger friends and me are not happy with the block editor, many of my blogger friends are going to move their blog elsewhere, can you bring back classic editor?

    1. It seems to be aimed at the business and professional users. They pay bigger fees to be on those premium plans of course. I just see no reason why they couldn’t have left the option for anyone who doesn’t want to change.
      Best wishes, Pete.
