Today I received the following from WordPress, a message box on an edit page:
“The block editor is now the default editor for all your sites, but you can still use the Classic block, if you prefer.”
It is necsessary to go back several months:
WordPress had imposed the Block Editor on my site without asking. I got in touch via the ‘help’ page. The guy said OK we’ll take it off and it disappeared. Two or three days ago the Block Editor returned. I tried to edit a page and found it to be impossible without the installing the Block Editor.
I contacted WordPress several times about all this with no reply.
There was a web page that said it was possible to remove the Block Editor with an App. When I tried to download the App I was told I would need to upgrade to a business class website £213.00. I don’t need a business website and I can’t afford £213.00, I’m a pensioner.
The message above: “you can still use the Classic block, if you prefer.” is not a preference it’s blackmail to force me to pay for a more expensive website.
