I have converted an older post from classic editor to blocks and have paragraphs showing as html in the edit mode. I can’t seem to figure out how to get them to display as paragraphs in the edit mode. I did get some changed by brute force of (preview > copy >Paste into new paragraph) but some are just disappearing when I try to preview them. Can you help me?

Some Block’s structure which are the custom HTML Blocks were converted differently. You may view this through the Code Editor: https://share.getcloudapp.com/9ZuoGnm1
This sample is a WP Heading Block. As shown, there are inconsistencies with regards to the tags –
<!—wp:heading —>turned to
<!— wp:html —>and
<div>. Mainly the tags,
<div>are the one preventing this to happen.
You may manually correct this by fixing the tags. Example: https://share.getcloudapp.com/Jruol9oX
Result on my test website: https://share.getcloudapp.com/Wnu71P7q
The same goes for Paragraph Blocks.
My suggestion is if you want to go this route, you can just manually convert the necessary Blocks, and then recreate the ones with no style included.
Or, you can also try recreating them through GenerateBlocks Headline Blocks.
Hope this clarifies. 🙂May 26, 2022 at 7:37 am #2233446Carl
Well, first off, I am not a coder. I have had some compsi 101 computer courses about 30 years ago, so I can tell you, things are totally different now.
I tried to duplicate your “changing the tags” but it did not work out well. I lost everything below the last heading, it’s gone.
I could have accomplished that by just deleting the html code.
Another issue with that particular post, is that my browser keeps freezing every few seconds, making edits extremely frustrating!
Anyway, I am not sure what else I can do except rewrite a new ending for that post.
Something in there, is causing a conflict and it is extremely difficult to edit!
Thanks for trying, I did learn and have some success with heading, and paragraph tags, but trying to remove and change thetags messed things up and broke the article code.

Yes, switching from the Classic to the Block editor does cause a couple of headaches based from my experience as well.
Recreating the broken Blocks from scratch, though tedious, may be the better course of action to avoid any complications.
In any case, if you’ll need assistance with anything else, let us know, and we’ll try our best to assist you. You’re welcome, and hope you have a nice day!
