Not everyone wants to use the Gutenberg block editor that is now the default editor in WordPress. Many are using the Classic Editor instead, so we added a setting to disable the block styles.

  1. Go to Appearance > Customize > Theme Options > Other Options
  2. Look for the Disable the Block Stylesheet setting and check the box next to it
  3. Click the Publish button at the top

Once you do this, no more block styles will load, which helps speed up your website. From this point, just keep the classic editor as your default one.

Remember, though, when disabling the block styling, anything that was using blocks will now be unstyled. You will also lose the ability to do some of the blocks that we put into the live demo for this theme.

UPDATE: Since this theme was made, we’ve recently written an article describing how to disable the Block Editor as well Gutenberg (overall).
