ClassicPress: The CMS for Creators. Stable. Secure. Instantly Familiar.

ClassicPress is a community-led open source content management system for creators. It is a fork of WordPress 4.9 that preserves the TinyMCE classic editor as the default option. It is more secure, contains less bloat which improves performance, and has no block editor (Gutenberg).
