How to fix the Visual Editor in WordPress 5
(Video duration = 90 seconds)
If you have upgraded to WordPress 5 and use any form of visual editor you may find that your editing display is not working or you cannot edit or publish any new content.
Before you panic and think you will have to roll back to a previous version of WordPress or an older website backup – try this.
Go to Plugins and add the ‘WP Classic Editor Plugin’ once activated you may well find that you are back in business and can back to work.
NB: As new patches are released by WordPress and plugin authors update their software this should be a temporary solution. However, WordPress is going to maintain this plugin for at least a couple of years.
