    1. I ran both a Norton scan and a malwarebites scan on my system after installing trickmonkey and the script. Looks good so far. The old editor is a nice, professional grade and that lousy, new one is sooo third grade.


    1. It’s just two quick steps if you follow the links. If you have Google chrome click on Tampermonkey and click on install extension, then come back to his page and go to #3. and click on “this link” and install the script. That simple. Nothing technical. You don’t have to read script to do it. It’s just CSS for Woprdpress.


  1. I saw this and immediately downloaded the extension. I can’t stand the new editor. Haven’t tried the new extension yet, but he sounded like it was the perfect solution. Have you tried it yet?


    1. Yes! Works great. Downloaded the extension and then back to “this link” to install the CSS script. I ran some scans to make certain everything was clean before I shared the post. WordPress, focusing on those who have gone mobile, ids forgetting the professionals who use their service. Instead of a professional editor they gave us this silly little third grade thing. Definitely NOT an UPgrade.
