Over the past year and a half, the WordPress community has been moving towards core-provided no-code (or low-code) Blocks-based visual editing. With Full Site Editing site administrators can now manage their templates with Blocks.
In this presentation, Sean will cover many hacks to get your project on the right track. He will demonstrate a bare-bones Block Theme, using the Create Block Theme plugin to insert Google and custom fonts, and a few must-have single-service community Block plugins for animations, custom types/fields/query loops, forms, dink sections with schema, and JetPack galleries. There’s no more fussing with themes and child themes and file-based templating.
WooCommerce Blocks bundled into WooCommerce core plus its plugin-based development track represents the future of WooCommerce templating. We already have a new cart, checkout, product archive, and single product layouts.
No visual editor is perfect, bug-free, and offers every single feature that one may wish for, but the community standard offers much more than given credit. Blocks serve key purposes regarding accessibility, licensing, performance, and community standards. If you’re not an advocate, don’t miss this presentation!
