Why Classic Editor and Disable Gutenberg?
The original Visual Editor was awesome. I’ve been using the original/classic editor for over 10 years now and the experience has always been 100% smooth. I’ve tried Gutenberg and yes, it’s much better now than previous versions, but for me it’s not as comfortable or streamlined as the classic editor. So I think a lot of people, like me, are familiar with that and want to use it for a long time.
