    Hi Everyone,

    We are an Enfold user that does not want to use the Gutenberg Block Editor. If that makes us Luddites, so be it.

    We thought we had solved the problem by installing the “Disable Gutenberg” plugin two days ago, but for whatever reason that stopped working today (10h00 USA EDT). We disabled the plug-in and then added this code to the very bottom of functions.php file for Enfold Parent, which appears to turn off the block editor completely:

    add_filter(‘use_block_editor_for_post’, ‘__return_false’);

    Two questions:
    1. Should we copy over the modified functions.php to Enfold Child?
    2. Is there a better way to turn off the Block Editor?

    Hi Cliff,

    If you don’t want to use Gutenberg at all then yes, please deactivate it using this code in your child theme functions.php file:

    // disable for posts
    add_filter('use_block_editor_for_post', '__return_false', 10);
    // disable for post types
    add_filter('use_block_editor_for_post_type', '__return_false', 10);

    We will likely add a theme option for this in a coming release as well.

    Best regards,


    Thank you, Rikard. A perfect fix! Best, Cliff
