I got my first taste of the new WordPress.com editor today, and I spat it out faster than the worst food I had ever tasted! Blah!
For those who don’t like it, either, here are a few “hacks” to still get access to your WordPress Classic Editor, for new posts, old posts, and old pages.
Creating new posts in Classic Editor
I had devised a solution below that is still good for editing old posts, but a reader who goes by Suso SM shared with me an even better solution for new posts. Thanks, Suso SM! Here was his solution.
- Copy the entire coloured URL below and paste into a new browser window, but do NOT hit Enter
- Change the text in red bold italics to whatever your site name is your WordPress account. You should be able to see that once you log in (and choose your site if you had more than one to your account).
- Now hit ENTER, and you’ll be prompted for a new post in the Classic WP Editor! If not, please check your site name you substituted in red. Everything should be the same until, or unless, WP takes away the Classic Editor or changes how to access it.
- I would also recommend bookmarking the URL if it works so you don’t have to do this every time, even if you didn’t post a lot.
Thanks so much Suso SM!

The trick has limited value at any given time for repeats to only get you a few to a lot more users depending on the volume of users in your area, but the trick can probably be used at least several times a day, every day, so its full value can only be derived through repeated use.
Living in Halifax, Nova Scotia, where we have Titanic victims and history and all, the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic has been one seriously overblown melodrama in a province that thrives on traditionalism.
However, sadly for them all, the 100th anniversary just past yesterday and now it all will fade into obscurity again. That was their day in the limelight. Now that it’s over, though, thank you very much for the time and effort put in to preserve the legacy, but it’s time to get a life!
That may sound harsh, but I do have compassion for them. Continue reading
