Why Disable the Gutenberg Editor in WordPress?

Many users who have been using WordPress for years are more comfortable with the classic editor.

Also, since the block editor is relatively new, some plugins are still not compatible with it.

Thankfully, there’s a plugin by the WordPress core team which allows you to use the classic editor even on WordPress 5.0 or later.

Let’s take a look at how to easily disable Gutenberg and keep using the classic WordPress editor.

Method 1. Disable Gutenberg with the Classic Editor Plugin

For this method, we will be using the Classic Editor plugin which is developed and maintained by the core WordPress contributors.

First thing you need to do is install and activate the Classic Editor plugin. For more details, see our step by step guide on how to install a WordPress plugin.

The plugin works out of the box, and it will disable the Gutenberg editor upon activation.

This plugin also gives you an option to keep both Gutenberg and the Classic editor at the same time. You can configure this in the plugin’s settings.

Simply go to the Settings » Writing page in your WordPress admin area. You will see the option to do this under “Classic editor settings”.
