I just find it terrible how they rolled it out so abruptly. So many websites were broken as a result. There are millions of downloads for the classic editor. I still read complaints about Gutenberg. I don’t mind learning new things as long as the new technology doesn’t destroy my site. Many people use their websites to earn a living, so I understand how they feel. They could’ve developed Gutenberg as a separate project and let people choose what they wanted to use.

There’s a platform out called ClassicPress which preserves WordPress before Gutenberg came on the scene. Maybe @weaver would be interested in supporting that or something like it down the road. I don’t know how much work that would be or if it is worth it.

When WordPress 5.9 rolls out, does anyone know if we have to download another plugin to avoid the block features like classic editor and classic widgets?
