General Updates

Async key project updates

Read the latest updates directly from the following tracking issues:


  • On the styles and style engine projects created a PR ready that outputs the presets specific to a section. It is ready for reviewWith it a group blockBlock Block is the abstract term used to describe units of markup that, composed together, form the content or layout of a webpage using the WordPress editor. The idea combines concepts of what in the past may have achieved with shortcodes, custom HTML, and embed discovery into a single consistent API and user experience. e.g: used in a pattern can have its own presets e.g: its own color palette its own gradients etc 
  • A PR with an identical mechanism for descendent block styles is also available at.
  • On the site editor and templates project, I created a PR that allow the user to create a generic template from the site editor and another that allows creating templates for specific authors.

  • I’d love to get a pair of eyes on this PR that a college prepared. It adds a setting to theme.json to allow developers to control whether the width control of the Core Buttons block gets shown to the user or not
