Republished with the permission and encouragement of the author.  If you haven’t gone over to the “dark side” of the new WP editor please read it as it’s important.

  1. Thanks for posting this. I tried the new editor a couple of weeks ago and it was awful. What a mess! Scares me too, that we’ll be forced to change. I don’t have the physical stamina to sit at the computer for long and need it to be as basic as possible. Hope they’ll keep the original as the default and not force the change….

      1. Oh, I love Chrome, but it took me a long time to adopt it. I just got Windows 10 this year, and before that had used Windows 7 since it came out, which is a long time ago.

        I’m pleased my post is getting so many comments over here too, and am following them with interest. I think it’s a hot button issue for many WP users, I know it is for me.
