  • ClassicPress retains many of the great features of WordPress. However, in addition, it also has these noteworthy qualities :

    • Improved Security : Concerned about security? ClassicPress has a “security-first” approach. No matter how shiny or exciting a new feature is, if it’s not secure, it won’t be added to the platform.

    • Less Bloat : We believe that powerful does not need to mean code-heavy. We've trimmed unnecessary plugins and features from ClassicPress core, and continue to actively seek smart ways to reduce code bloat.

    • Block-free : Choose the development path that works best for you. With the flexibility and stability that ClassicPress provides, you have the freedom to create a solution that meets your unique needs.

If you have spent years creating LOTS of content with the classic editor in WP, being forced into the Gutenberg drag-and-drop scheme can be a total wipeout. ClassicPress allows you keep your existing WP sites going, while you plan your own evolution. There are lots of themes & plugins (for both WP and CP) that can help your site look good on cellphones. I especially like "2012" theme, which is responsive (cellphone-friendly) & easy to tweak with the SiteOrigin CSS plugin.
