WordPress 5.0 introduces a new editor called Block Editor (a.k.a Gutenberg) and it does not allow users to switch to the previous Classic Editor.
To address this we implemented a new option to enable the Classic Editor in the latest version of Divi, Extra and the Divi Builder standalone plugin that when enabled will allow you to use the WordPress Classic Editor or the Divi Backend Builder.
Enabling the Classic Editor is very easy. All you need to do is head out to Divi > Theme Options > Builder > Advanced and enabled the Enable Classic Editor option.
