These blocks represent the fundamental building blocks of every WordPress website. You’ll learn the nuances of each block type and how to configure them correctly, with a special focus on new features in WordPress 6.1. Join us for an interactive presentation followed by a group Q&A.

In this session we will discuss when and why to use reusable blocks, how they can boost your website workflow, and share and build some use cases in real time.

August 26, 2022 — The block variation API allows you to create “variations” of existing blocks. A variation differs from the original block by a predefined set of attributes or inner blocks.

In this online workshop, we will demystify block variations and demonstrate just how powerful they can be. Variations are a fundamental part of modern WordPress website development. In fact, many WordPress Core blocks that you use every day are actually variations!
