  1. Please note that this a temporary work around whilst you learn the block editor. I plan to do more how to video that will help everyone create a basic blog post fast on the blog editor. The block editor is easy and I hope I can demo that to you all. I also want to create advance videos to help the wordpress community get past 1st june 2020 and still keep producing blog posts.

    Again using the classic block should not be your long term strategy. Just until you are comfortable with block editor. I am sure wp will remove this block and ask to convert to blocks. Again this is easy. I think wp had to create this block to aid data migration, for that reason might hang on to for a little while before asking it to be converted.

    Have fun
