I wanted to use your generateblocks plugin to make some nice boxes on some of my pages, but I also use the classic editor plugin as I really dont want to use the gutenberg editor. I know it sounds painful but im used to manually adding html tags to everything, such as my <h> tags and <p>tags, etc.
If I am using classic editor plugin, I assume I have to uninstall it for the gutenberg editor to work, and therefore generateblocks, as GB is a block editor.
So, here are my three questions:
1. If I uninstall the classic editor plugin, what will happen to my website, as all these pages have been built manually.
2. If I still do that, can I switch between the block editor and a text-based editor (like classic editor displays)?
3. Am I better off trying to make some boxes manually with CSS? I just liked the look of your GB plugin.
I use GeneratePress for the main site.
Thank you in advance.

OK I have partly solved this, I’ll tell others in case they don’t know.
If you, like me, are using the classic editor plugin, simply go to settings and you can choose to “allow users to switch editors“. This is off by default. Turn it on.
So you can leave the classic editor as the default editor. Now go to your page, click the 3 little dots at the top right & you will see “Switch to classic editor” or “Switch to block editor” depending on which one you are currently using.
If you have built a site with GeneratePress but with the classic editor plugin (as I cant stand the block editor) and you want to try using GenerateBlocks to make some nice layouts, that’s how you can switch between the two types of editor. I hope that helps.
Lastly, I love the work you guys at GP do, the only thing I would say is that your videos are so fast it’s quite hard to see what you are actually doing. I watched the Blocks video full-screen about 6 times & had to pause & rewind numerous times just to see what was going on. If you are not familiar with your plugin, I’d say the video moves very fast.
Otherwise thanks 🙂June 22, 2020 at 12:03 pm #1337857LeoStaffCustomer SupportJune 22, 2020 at 3:51 pm #1338054David
