Are you and your WordPress site ready for 2023?
If you are still relying on the Classic Editor plugin, you may not be.
When WordPress 5.0 (also known as Gutenberg or block editor) launched in late 2018, the Classic Editor plugin became one of the most popular plugins available.
This plugin let you ignore the new weirdness and weird newness that was early Gutenberg, and simply pretend that it hadn’t happened. It was awesome.
In late 2020, WordPress announced that support for Classic Editor would end by 2021. In early 2021, they extended support “until 2022” but they haven’t really said until when.
As of today, the plugin hasn’t been updated in a year and hasn’t been tested with current WordPress versions.
All of this means – if your site relies on Classic Editor and you see it installed in your site’s plugins, it may be time to think about some updates.
The good news is – we can help.
Much like fixing a leaking roof – it is much cheaper to stop the leak, than to let it leak, and rot, and have to rebuild the rafters and walls and the sills (ask me about the barn project some day).
Taking action now, to make sure your site will last and work well for years to come, will be more cost effective and easier than having a crisis should something go wrong with older, incompatible plugins.
