Block Based Themes – The Future Of Full Site Editing In WordPress

Since the launch of Gutenberg, we have been enjoying the great experience of Gutenberg. So far, we have taken advantage of WYSIWYG, ‘What You See Is What You Get’, inside the post editor. What would it be like to use Gutenberg outside the editor? Would the traditional admin screens such as customizer still exist?

In this talk, you will learn what is different about Block-based themes and how you would be able to use the features like Nav menus and widgets outside of the post-editing screen. This talk will demonstrate many new exciting features and give you a good taste of using block-based themes. You will now have the power to decide what the site’s front end will look like and know that the power is ultimately in the user’s hands.
