What is Gutenberg?
This is expected to be the new WordPress component that will completely change the way the content on your site is working. The idea of developers is to make it easier for novice users who can hardly handle content on their site through HTML or CSS. The new functionality will allow adding certain block elements and shaping the visual view without any difficulty.
Why to Disable Gutenberg
The interface allows easy writing, editing and publishing of content. Especially for novice bloggers, the new text editor is a great tool to easily and intuitively create new content.
Gutenberg, however, has many of its minuses, especially for those developers who have so far used to using the built-in html editor. The more conservative of change without much thought would be glad to regain the former look of the classic wordpress editor. For their joy, there is a solution now, and it is simple…
How To Switch Back To Old Classic 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.”
So for now, we can still enjoy the traditional editor and help develop the new editor if we have the opportunity and the desire.
If you want use function method in PHP, you have to try this code in function.php into active wordpress theme folder:
add_action(‘wp_print_styles’, ‘remove_gutenberg_styles’, 10);
You can just install the WP plugin “Classic Editor” to deactivate Gutenberg and bring back the classic WP editor. I wish you good luck!
