  • Let’s code: using block patterns in your block theme

    Speaker: Jonathan Bossenger

    October 21, 2022 — Block patterns are predefined block layouts. They provide a means to refine the editorial experience by offering users a preset arrangement of blocks to start building right away.

    In this session we will look at the different types of block patterns that can be created, the various ways that block patterns can be registered for a theme, and then create a few block pattern examples for some common theme requirements.
