What You’ll Learn in the Course

What is Full Site Editing: First we’ll take a look at what Full Site Editing is – the areas it covers and what it means for building websites with WordPress.

Current Core Features: WordPress 5.8 has already introduced some key full site editing features into Core already, so let’s take a look at those – in particular, the page template editor.

How to Enable Full Site Editing: Since full site editing is still a (very) experimental feature, there are a couple of steps we need to take to enable it, involving the Gutenberg plugin and a supporting theme.

Theme / Design Blocks: There’s a whole host of new blocks introduced with full site editing, allowing us to take basically any aspect of WordPress and add it as a block. The idea is to replace a lot of what template tags can do, and these blocks get us a lot of the way there.

Global Styles Interface: Global Styles are a must if we’re able to design our own sites without the need for CSS. And while themes might still do the heavy lifting, the full site editor gives us the ability to change styles site-wide. This is perhaps the most experimental (and most likely to change) part of full site editing, but it’s important concept.

Working with Templates: Something that was only editable through code until recently were site templates for posts, pages, 404 error, and more.. With full site editing, there’s now native support to customize how archives, single posts, and more are displayed.

Creating Template Parts: Perhaps even more exciting that modifying templates is creating and modifying template parts, like headers, footers, and sidebars. This will enable us (coupled with templates) to create discrete microsite, membership areas, and other pages to help us hone a user’s experience.

Building a 2 Column Layout with Template Parts: Let’s put template parts to the test by building a sidebar widget area, then a page template that includes it, and a content area.

Building a 404 Page: One of the most exciting aspects of the full site editor is the ability to customize the 404 page without code! Before now, we’d need a plugin, code, or some other external tool. Now, we can do it natively, using a familiar blocks interface.

Now that you have a tour of the full site editor, where do we go from here? We’ll cover what you can expect from FSE, as well as this course as FSE evolves and changes.

  • What theme developers should thing about when it comes to full site editing
  • What is theme.json and how does it work?
  • Finding themes that work well with FSE and doing builds with them
  • Student Q&A sessions
  • Live demos of new features
  • Interface updates when they happen

But Wait! There’s More!

  • Full Access to the Using the Block Editor Course
  • Access to a community of students and creators
  • Regular Updates to keep up with the evolving editor
  • Full Access to WP101’s WordPress 101 course
  • Checklists and other resources
  • Custom Block Patterns not available anywhere else.

That’s an additional $500 worth of value!
