Hallway Hangout: Let’s chat about overlapping problems in the Site Editor

To bring a broader discussion into a higher bandwidth medium, in this session, we’ll talk through some overlapping problems in the Site Editor that are both known and complex to solve.

How to join

If you’re interested in joining, the Hallway Hangout will happen on  2024-02-27 17:00 . A Zoom link will be shared in the core-editor SlackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform https://slack.com/. The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at https://make.wordpress.org/chat/. channel before starting and all are welcome to join, whether to listen or participate, for as long or as little as you’d like. This will be recorded and recapped.


At a high level, expect this to be an open forum to discuss in more depth some of the high level problems facing the current experience in the Site Editor, including discussions about current in-progress work and an examination of what makes these problems complex to solve. This includes the following aspects of the current experience:

  • Changing something across your entire site or just for one 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..
  • Seeing where items are used across the experience.
  • Understanding inherited values and options.
  • Understanding what you can and can’t edit.

As a reminder, hallway hangouts are meant to be casual and collaborative so come prepared with a kind, curious mind. Depending on how large the session is, we may not get to all questions live on the call but we can always include follow up in the recap.
