Jeff Ong at ThemeShaper shares how to create a block-based theme using block templates that can be fully edited with Gutenberg — including headers, footers, and sidebars.
As of Gutenberg 7.2.0, block templates are an experimental feature on the path to a full-site editable front-end for WordPress. Jeff notes, “This spec is in a very early stage. I hope by writing this, your interest is piqued to learn more and contribute your own experiment to the WordPress theme experiments repository.”
Tip of the hat to Mel Choyce for bringing Jeff’s post to my attention. 🧢
