Klassisk redigering


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.

At a glance, this plugin adds the following:

  • Administrators can select the default editor for all users.
  • Administrators can allow users to change their default editor.
  • When allowed, the users can choose which editor to use for each post.
  • Each post opens in the last editor used regardless of who edited it last. This is important for maintaining a consistent experience when editing content.

In addition, the Classic Editor plugin includes several filters that let other plugins control the settings, and the editor choice per post and per post type.

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


  • Admin settings on the Settings -> Writing screen.
  • User settings on the Profile screen. Visible when the users are allowed to switch editors.
  • "Action links" to choose alternative editor. Visible when the users are allowed to switch editors.
  • Link to switch to the Block Editor while editing a post in the Klassisk redigering. Visible when the users are allowed to switch editors.
  • Link to switch to the Klassisk redigering while editing a post in the Block Editor. Visible when the users are allowed to switch editors.
  • Network setting to allow site admins to change the default options.


Thank Goodness

I like to keep things updated, but without this plug-in I doubt I would have updated to the latest version of WP. Gutenberg feels unfinished and clunky. I have my website where all I have to do for each page is insert the text and publish. In classic I don't have to waste extra time hunting down simple tasks to get the page publish. Without classic I would be experimenting with other ways for my website and scrapping WP.

A remedy for a disaster

The first problem I noticed with the new editor was that I would click, click, click, click... for what was simple before. Then I noticed that I couldn't craft coherent text because everything had to be in a (be damned) individual block. My train of thought for a flowing document that would be moved and edited now had to be preformatted into numerous compartments. I could probably spend hours listing why this plugin is the rescue, although I have reverted to 4.9.9.

Thank you!

I can understand the block editor idea (I like it and prefer it) but you changed EVERYTHING at once. It took me a while just to figure out the top block is the official post title, and even longer to figure out the permalink edit functions. These were simple, self explanatory fields before. Also Gutenberg didn't seem to play well with SEO Press SEO. I also can't figure out how to hide fields like we can in classic editor with the "Screen Options" pull down. I'm reminded of the Window 8 fiasco where EVERYTHING was changed in one big release. I spent more (valuable) time trying to figure out the editor than writing and producing content. Before you claim it's just basic, free, open source software run by volunteers, it's not. I pay a lot for official Automatic plugins for our Woocommerce installs ($2500+ annually between our sites and multiple Automatic accounts) I now have to pay my writers their hourly rate to figure out the new work flow. Time is money. At least we have a classic version now (it sucks we have to add another plugin) to get some work done.

Life saver!!! – Gutenberg is a real farce

I was SO desperate with Gutenberg! With all its irrational complexity, it took all the fun away from blogging (I've loved blogging since 2012) and now could have stopped blogging just because of bloody Gutenberg. Gutenberg is the worst mistake in the whole life of WP! Thank God this plugin exists, my life is saved and blogging is fun again! I HATE when developers create these "cool" features (like Gutenberg) which nobody wants. I want something that works (like Classic Editor), not something awkward that developers think is "cool"! Please test your ideas first with real users and then develop them if people really want them!
