Classic Editor

WordPress 5 introduces a new block editor (also known as Gutenberg). After the update, the previous editing experience can still be available with the help of the Classic Editor plugin. Most of the SiteGround WordPress 5 users will have this plugin installed as part of the SiteGround auto-upgrade process. However, it can be easily added through your wp-admin, if you do not have it yet.

Default editor for all users: Block Editor
