Weekly Web Updates – March 11, 2019

We have decide not to make the Disable Gutenberg or Classic Editor plugins enabled for both technical and support reasons. If you would like to use the WordPress editor as it was before WordPress 5, you can add a Classic Block to your content.

During testing and support we have come across one issue with the new editing interface: if you had the Category to Tag Converter plugin enabled and used it to convert tags on your site, some of the tags may be “orphaned” and will give an “Unable to save” error when you try to save a post or page with that tag. If you notice this, please contact us and we can work on the affected site to recreated the missing tags.
