WordPress 5.0 – December 6, 2018 – Ready or not !


Yes, WordPress 5.0 is out December 6, 2018.

In the event you have a website built on WordPress, and if your site breaks as a result of the update, there might be help available.

ClassicPress.net has been working hard to provide a real alternative to the Gutenberg version of WordPress, which begins with version 5.0. Please keep in mind:

ClassicPress is still in BETA. Officially, it is not recommended for production sites, though they are working hard to get that ready.

I can say that I have personally converted around 200 WordPress sites and they are all running without issue. Basically it is WordPress without the forced addition of Gutenberg editor into the core of WordPress. Having said that, I would be remiss if I didn’t advise based on what BETA represents.

There is help also available. I would recommend following the link below to check out what you might be able to do or to get help.


We do hope that, if there are any issues with the release of WordPress 5.0, they are minimal.
