Hi Daniel,

The new WordPress block editor is now the primary editing experience for your site(s).

The WordPress editor empowers you to create pages and posts by layering multiple blocks on top of each other. It’s versatile, intuitive, and boasts exciting new features, including:

Over 100 content blocks available for publishing.
A growing collection of block patterns.
Dozens of beautiful built-in page templates.
Styles you can customize directly within the editor.

Switch to Classic Editor

If you are like me and need just a basic editor, please go this way.

Summary

Please note that the only path that works, is navigating through WP Admin.

The new editor appears to have more CSS ( cascading style sheets ).

A plain writer, may find the graphics, get in the way.
