Classic WordPress v Gutenberg Block Editors

It’s all in the name ‘classic’ classic infers something that worked- that’s quintessential and time honoured but now we’re moving on: classic is dead Z classic is dead. Make way for the BLOCK! Even the name sounds ridiculous.

Why? Block is not user friendly-it’s too demanding, too confusing, too all over the place- irregular and anomalous.

At least the choice is still there but it’s constantly demanding use BLOCK. No I won’t!

STOP WORDPRESS.

Sometimes you wonder is it that software developers are sitting there navel gazing wondering is there anything to do?  I know let’s make some changes. And changes are good if they are done for the right reason-not just change for changes sake.

I know says dev we are WordPress mo’k?  Then Gutenberg the first press- yaw- that’s it we’ll make it like a book shape and on and on and they get all carried away.

Classic works- it is easy to follow-you don’t have to move things around. You want to write a story just write on a page like it is word doc and write.

You want to add media well no problem: press the add media or + and there you have it. But with block it is so tedious and mind numbing and super unfriendly- it must have been a bad pizza day when they came up with that block head idea.
