Wordpress has included a new Gutenberg plugin in the latest update WordPress 5.0.0. It has affected most of the sites.

WordPress has introduced another plugin named Custom Editor to have old implemetation. You can install the following plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/classic-editor/ 

Disable Gutenberg with the Classic Editor Plugin

For this method, we will be using the Classic Editor plugin which is developed and maintained by the core WordPress contributors.

First thing you need to do is install and activate the Classic Editor plugin. For more details, see our step by step guide on how to install a WordPress plugin.

The plugin works out of the box, and it will disable the Gutenberg editor upon activation.

This plugin also gives you an option to keep both Gutenberg and the Classic editor at the same time. You can configure this in the plugin’s settings.

Simply go to the Settings » Writing page in your WordPress admin area. You will see the option to do this under “Classic editor settings”.
