I have Telkom ADSL that I use for my landline (telephone) and internet. I pay for a 10Mbps Telkom line yet I only get about 1.35 Mbps!!
[Click on screenshot to enlarge it]
Last week 5 different Telkom technicians visited the premises and when the last technician left on Thursday he stated that the speed had been increased to between 8 and 10 Mbps. When I did another speed test it actually showed 0.7 Mbps. To add insult to injury this particular technician ‘cleared the Fault’ as “the issue had been resolved” (details below).Continue reading The Reason I Moved from Telkom’s ADSL to Vumatel’s Fibre (done and dusted in 3 days)

The Gutenberg editor has introduced many useful features to make editing of a WordPress website so much easier. The problem is that Gutenberg has technical glitches…
Should you be experiencing difficulties with your new Gutenberg editor (version 5.0 and up) go back to the Classic editor.
Go to your Admin Area > Plugins > Add New > search for ‘Classic Editor’ > Install Now > Activate

And that’s it. You now have your Classic Editor back.
A word of caution: changing from Gutenberg to the Classic editor may mess up your photo Gallery(ies). You may have to create a new Gallery/ Galleries.
Which editors may I using? On my main website https://www.wordpresstrainingjohannesburg.com/ I have reverted back to the Classic editor. On my hobby website I am going to continue using the Gutenberg editor. New features are being added all the time to the Gutenberg editor and the technical glitches that many users are currently experiencing with Gutenberg will hopefully, in the not too distant future, be resolved.
WordPress announced that whilst new features are being added to Gutenberg on an ongoing basis, they will continue to support the Classic Editor until 2021.
