October 21, 2023 — This talk is meant to be an advanced deep dive into how we can extend the block editor to fit our needs for highly customized WordPress builds in 2023. It will go into details how to build custom blocks that interface with the query loop, using block variations, theme.json filters and much more.
October 15, 2023 — In this workshop, learn how to adapt a shortcode-based plugin so that it also renders content in a custom block for use in the WordPress editor. The plugin will therefore no longer need to rely on the build-in Shortcode Block.
Starting with a scaffolded project, you will go on to build out a dynamic block that works with a CPT (Custom Post Type) and a CT (Custom Taxonomy). Learn how to use the hooks provided by the @wordpress/core-data package to pull content into the editor while also ensuring that the content is correctly rendered in the front-end. You will also learn how to use block attributes both in the editor and in the front-end.
You will learn how a dynamic block differs from a static block and the use cases for each.
If you already have, or are thinking of building, a plugin that uses a shortcode to render content, and would like to learn how to also render that content in a block, this workshop is for you.
