I promised Kim at By Hook or by Book Blog, that I would do a quick tutorial on how to access the classic editor in the new block editor, for when or if they finally remove the original classic editor from your choices. I already did one for how to keep the new block editor simple and there’s now a menu option on this blog’s page to access both tutorials, entitled WordPress Tutorials.

For a small fee you can get rid of them. I thought it was worth the price of the Personal plan. And as long as WP makes the same or more by selling the plan upgrades as they would from the ads, everyone’s happy.

      Best wishes, Pete.

    1. I had to laugh at ‘where’s all my bits and pieces!!’ (toolbar is probably the word you were looking for). Good tutorials Fraggle, you don’t sound anything like what I imagined though 😁
