It has been a while since I used WordPress and it seems that lot have changed. It appears that I cannot see certain settings anymore, like set tags, set categories for a post, permalink and more.

Can you help me finding them please ? Below you have a screenshot of what I see right now on the right side when I want to write an article.

enter image description here

  • In the new editor, the Permalink does not show up until a draft is saved. You can either save a draft or publish, and either will then show the permalink as editable. Less than ideal, and there is a GitHub ticket where they're discussing whether or not they can change this so you can set the permalink before publishing or saving a draft.

  • I think the most important are the tags and categories, rather than the permalink. It would be nice to have them back.
