To better tell the story of blocks, both within WordPress and as a broader framework for folks to consider with their next project, a new page has been created on The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. that attempts to pull together the ease and power of blocks into a single source:

This work was wrangled in this GitHub issue and this figma file before diving into the editor itself to implement it thanks to help from a wide group of folks with special shout outs to @ryelle @matveb @saxonfletcher @kellychoffman @youknowriad @markoserb @joen @ndiego @provenself. You will soon find this page under the “Extend” menu to better improve discoverability and highlight blocks.

Let’s iterate with feedback

This is intended to be a starting point and not a final destination. Your feedback is welcomed and needed to get to the next iteration. Please leave a comment below and consider the following questions

  • What would make this page more compelling?
  • What points of confusion remain?
  • What visuals would you like to see to better communicate the story of blocks?
  • What additional resources need to be created to guide folks?
  • Where else should this page be linked from to improve discoverability?

Going forward, the intention is to update this page semi-regularly as it makes sense, with progressive features in WordPress releases and increasing resources.

Thank you to @ndiego and @cbringmann for reviewing this post.
