Using the Classic Block in Gutenberg

by Dec 10, 2018WordPress 5.0, Gutenberg, WordPress Tutorials - WP Tutorials

The classic block allows you to use the familiar classic WordPress editor within a Gutenberg block.  If you convert a post from the Classic Editor,( pre WordPress 5.0), to Gutenberg, your whole post will show up in one Classic Block.  This block allows multiple content types to be placed in one block and not have them separated among multiple blocks.

Step 1 –  Hover your mouse over the Add Block icon (the plus sign in the upper left-hand corner within the Gutenberg editor). Scroll to Formatting. Select Classic block.
