Author's Description

wpcom-edit-post-redirect.user.js

WordPress.com has removed the preference to edit posts using the classic interface. This user script forces a redirect to the classic interface when the new edit interface is visited.

Installation

If you don't already have one, install a browser extension that allows you to run user scripts. Then, visit the URL below:

https://github.com/tpenguinltg/wpcom-edit-post-redirect.user.js/raw/master/wpcom-edit-post-redirect.user.js

Also on Greasy Fork.

Known Issues

  • The new interface will sometimes start loading and appear before the redirect occurs
  • The redirection will likely fail on Jetpack-enabled sites whose site root is different from its installation root (e.g. the site is accessed from http://example.com/, but the installation root is http://example.com/wordpress/).

Other workarounds

If you don't like this script or can't use it for any reason, there are other workarounds available.
