The free Classic Editor Addon plugin is targeted at everyone who is not yet ready for the new editing experience that has been introduced in WordPress 5.0. Install it now on sites and the UX remains the same as you are used to!
Rollback removal of WooCommerce block-ui scripts
Please pay attention that the minimum PHP version to use our plugin is 5.6.
The reason we released the “Classic Editor Addon” plugin is because in the beginning the “Classic Editor” plugin did not what it said on the label.
Since version 0.0.4 of the “Classic Editor” plugin, it finally set the default setting to actually using the Classic Editor. It still contains a Settings page though and if the purpose of people is to get the Classic Editor instead of using the new block editor, then we don’t see the need for such a Settings page.
Also, if we look at developers protecting the sites of their clients with the Classic Editor, they certainly don’t want their clients to accidentally turn off the Classic Editor as the new block editor adds a lot of undesirable comments, tags and what not to the content.
Sites running WooCommerce get another style added to the
<head> section of the site. With the Classic Editor Addon installed that call is obviously redundant. With version 2.5.0 we introduce a condition that checks for WooCommerce and if active it removes that call. Win!
Therefore we highly recommend installing this “Classic Editor Addon” plugin, which will automatically install the “Classic Editor” plugin and remove its settings.
We support this plugin exclusively through Github. Therefore, if you have any questions, need help and/or want to make a feature request, please open an issue here. You can also browse through open and closed issues to find what you are looking for and perhaps even help others.
Thanks for your understanding and cooperation.

The release of WordPress 5.0 comes with a replacement of the TinyMCE editor you have gotten used to. Some find it an improvement, others don’t. More information can be found on the WP 5.0 release post.
When it was released initially, the “Classic Editor” plugin, by Andrew Ozz and other “WordPress Contributors”, didn’t completely disable the new block editor without changing settings. Since version 0.0.4 it does, but it still comes with Settings. The “Classic Editor Addon” is a second plugin that makes sure the Settings are gone, so they cannot be accidentally triggered and “bring down the skies”.
Great question! “Classic Editor” is the official plugin for removing the new block editor, and the install count is apparently being used as a metric to gauge success of the project. So, although other plugins exist to force-disable the new block editor, using them doesn’t properly notify the WP Core team of the number of issues users are having, that is why “Classic Editor Addon” doesn’t disable the new block editor itself, it just removes the Settings page of the “Classic Editor” plugin, making it easier to mass-install the “Classic Editor” plugin.
Has the site been updated to WordPress 5.0 and do you have the Classic Editor plugin installed? Those two are requirements for this addon plugin to do anything. If you have and the plugin still doesn’t do anything, then please open a support ticket.
