Beep Beep Boop editor

    Lately, when I click “edit” on an existing post the new editor format pops up without a button to get back to the original classic editor.

    With the new format I cannot access my dashboard, nor does it have capability to create “color” or “paragraph/headings” – in the font.

    How do I get rid of the new editor and retain the classic editor?

    The blog I need help with is judithwesterfield.com.

    At the far right of the editor tool bar is a button called the Toolbar Toggle, click it and a second line of options, including the ones you’re looking for, are there. I had the same question before until I found this.

    I don’t see a Toolbar Toggle button. Please don’t take away my classic editor! I don’t like the new one at all and have been using classic editor all this time, but today I don’t see a way to get back to it.

    I don’t see a Toolbar Toggle button either.
    The only things to click are: My Sites, My Reader, Create a new post, My profile and comments.

    I’ve clicked on everything I can click on.

    Quatsino,
    Thank you I found the tool bar toggle!!!!
    I still dislike the Beep Beep Booooooooooooo format.

    Have you found a way to get back to the Classic editor?

    P.S. WordPress People – Please quit trying to make things better with things that already were working just fine. I would prefer you focusing on things like how to get rid of unwanted subscribers (spammers) while keeping the blog public.

    Change isn’t always progress or better.

    Sorry, didn’t know how to include an image, figured the description was enough. I agree, don’t like the Beep Beep Boooooooo layout, it combined paragraphs when I tried to edit a published post. I don’t know how to revert it back to the old one.

    Have you found a way to get back to the Classic editor?

    To use the classic editor to create posts like I do, go to Dashboard > Posts > Add New
    Here is the model so you can see the format

    Here is the link to the page on your blog

    To use the classic editor when you edit Posts like I do, use the Posts -> All Posts menu, hover over the post title and click the Edit link.

    timethief,
    Thank you for taking your time to help me.
    The problem is not the initial posting (which as you describe is what I do).
    When I VIEW my post to see how it looks and then click on “edit” (at the post’s bottom) to go back to my editing the Beep Boooo editor comes up instead of the classic editor I was originally working with.

    This used to happen occasionally and there was a button to click to return to the Classic editor. Now there’s no button to take me back to the Classic format.

    It’s frustrating not to have that choice. Quatsino helped me find the Toolbar Toggle which at least gives me the editing choices I want.
