Navigation blockBlockBlock 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.
People are being signed up for usability testing. There are already a few interviews scheduled for next week. The testing will be moderated and conducted with a prototype of the Navigation block.
