Post Status Excerpt (No. 55) — A New Era of WordPress Themes

“A style is the design language for a theme.”

— Rich Tabor

In this episode, David Bisset talks with someone who has moved the WordPress theme needle a long way: Rich Tabor. Rich believes the arrival of the Full Site Editing experience in WordPress 5.9 is the biggest innovation since themes emerged. Speaking from the experience of creating blocks and block themes, Rich explains how Full Site Editing will change WordPress’s identity.

Why This Matters: WordPress professionals need to be familiar with more than just just “blocks.” There are block themes, styles, and more features that have already arrived in the WordPress editor. This episode helps put these new enhancements in context for builders, agencies, and creatives.
