#51272 closed defect (bug) (reported-upstream)

Inability to easily opt-out of the "welcome to the new block editor" recurring pop-up when creating new pages or posts

Description

There seems to be no way for the WordPress site admin to opt-out of the constant persistent "Welcome to the new block editor" popup when creating a new page or post. It seems impossible that the WP dev team has not considered this. So there must be a good reason for it. I would love to know.

IMHO, inability to opt-out of this recurring pop-up qualifies a bug that should be fixed ASAP. There are multiple instances of this issues being mentioned by WP users.

@wordmax Thanks for the report!

There are at least two open issues to address this problem in the editor.

Until one or both of these is ready, Luke's temporary fix could work on individual sites:

Because this has already been reported upstream in the Gutenberg repository, I'm going to close this out.
