Tag: Full-Site Editing

Full-site editing is a major part of the bigger Gutenberg project.

Full-site editing involves changing the whole of the WordPress theming system so it relies on blocks.

  • Your site logo? That will be an image block.
  • Your menu? That will be a navigation block.
  • Your homepage layout? That could be a grid block.

PublishPress 2022 Review and Thank You

Welcome to the fourth annual review from PublishPress. You can read our previous reviews for 2019, 2020, and 2021.

We write these annual reviews for at least three reasons:

  1. These reviews are for our customers. Thank you for all your investment in our work. I hope the reviews help you get a better understanding of our vision for these plugins.
  2. The reviews are for business owners. We try to be honest about the ups-and-downs in the hope that you can avoid some of the mistakes we've made!
  3. And finally, the reviews are for us. We pour many hours of our lives into building these plugins. It's easy to forget key incidents as you do the daily work. And as the years go by, it's great to look back on these reviews and remember the rollercoaster ride.

Here's our recap of key events for PublishPress in 2022.

How to Use Nested Blocks in the Gutenberg Editor

Nested Blocks

At that point, you will be able to build complete webpages in Gutenberg and I guarantee you'll be using nested blocks.

Some common uses of nested blocks are the default Columns, Cover, or Group blocks.
