OH CRAP!!!!!!!!!! The good ole stand by is now gone, so are the easy days of posting without all the complications. So now when you ask for Classic Editor it’s actually the previous Block Editor. What a nightmare! I didn’t learn it let alone the new one.
The new one is great for all the bells and whistles but if you like to keep things super simple those days are gone.
Here’s what WordPress told me this morning.
The classic editor has been retired, but we do have a classic block, which retains that functionality for you to use. We also made this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BkQlTuJ4BH8&feature=emb_title on how to work with blocks and the block editor
