    Hi there,

    Are you trying to install a plugin? If you do please note that plugin installation is only available on the Business and eCommerce plans.

    Other than that, if you want to switch to the Classic editor you can see how in the following screencast:


    Thanks for your help. The screen video you send, does not look like mine, and I can’t see the same functions…
