Disallow Users to Switch Editors

Now, when the WordPress 5.0 has been released, even with the Classic Editor plugin installed, users are still being invited to switch to the newly introduced Block Editor despite assurances that this won’t be the case. This means that it’s not enough just to install the Classic Editor plugin, but one more step is required, you need to disable the option to switch editors.

Disallow User to Switch Editors
This option is located on the WP Admin > Settings > Writing screen

Changing this can be time-consuming when you need to do it on multiple sites, so we at MainWP made sure that this can be accomplished by using the MainWP Bulk Settings Manager Extension.

To save you some time, we already created the Settings Key for this change and it can get it here along with instructions on how to use it.

Please note that the rest of the settings from the Settings > Writing page is set to WordPress defaults in the provided key.
