This week: lightweight WordPress themes, Full Site Editing, a podcast from Kinsta, Figma and WordPress Design Library, and much more.
I’m Igor Benić, a web developer interested in expanding my knowledge through various projects and educating others on what I learn while working. In my free time I am trying to grow my side projects and create a product business through WordPress plugins.
As Full Site Editing is approaching, it’s obvious that the new block editor; Gutenberg, is going to be an important part of most products in the WordPress ecosystem. We can already see that some products have integrated the new block editor as their builder. First that come to mind are MailPoet, FluentCRM or NewsletterGlue for building newsletters and GravityForms for building forms.
There is an interesting plugin that changes the Comment textarea into the Gutenberg editor where you can use specific blocks. The repository is still active and I invite to try it out (and developers to read the repository).
