Gutenberg is the WordPress Editor We Don’t Need!

I was surprised to find out when adding a new entry to one of my self-hosted WordPress blog that the back-end interface has totally changed. And it was not for the better. It was not at all intuitive. I hate it! I learned it was called Gutenberg.

Searching around, I understood why WordPress has to do this, WordPress wants to compete with the likes of Facebook and Twitter, where users simply upload a media, add some text, and go! While mobile, using touch.

If I want to do some quick posts, I’d do that on Facebook and/or Twitter. For lengthy texts and explanations, WordPress is the way to go. And I don’t need those pointless blocks that break in the first place to do that!

So please, WordPress, don’t ruin our experience. Stop using Gutenberg as the default editor in the self-hosted WordPress blogs, and don’t you dare remove the classic editor option here in WordPress.com.
