Problems with WordPress 5 and the new Editor Gutenberg

How to disable Gutenberg on WordPress 5 and solve all compatibility issues

WordPress 5.0 was released a few days ago and among the many new features there is also Gutenberg, which is the brand new built-in default page editor that revolutionizes the editing of pages on WordPress like never before.

Gutenberg allows you to create “block” pages, a bit like the external Visual Composer plugin, and for those who use that kind of plugin will find the interface of the new WordPress 5.0 editor familiar.

If you want to experience the potential of Gutenberg open the Gutenberg Live Demo  to get an idea of how it is the new editor of WordPress 5.0.

Unfortunately, the upgrade to WordPress 5.0 with Gutenberg is creating many problems for many websites with incorrect layouts, incompatible plugins, single page access errors and much more.

Also I’m having several problems with the new WordPress update and as I manage many sites, I’m seeing all the colors, especially those heavily modified have problems with layout.

The solution to everything is and is to disable the new editor to get back the classic editor that we all know on WordPress, so as to get everything working as before but with the benefits of the new version, more secure, WordPress.

  1. It’s rather sad that the only viable solution is to go back to the way WordPress used to be. I had the same problem and the WP team said that the copy/paste issue would be resolved in 5.0.1 but no word when that will be hitting.

    I think WordPress may wind up having to extend that 2 year deadline to the Classic Editor.
