The Future of Block Theme Meetings

During yesterday’s Block theme’s meeting, a question was raised during the Open floor if the meetings should continue as they currently are. Since WP 5.9 was released, 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. themes are part of CoreCore Core is the set of software required to run WordPress. The Core Development Team builds WordPress. with TwentyTwenty Two, is it a better use of our time to attend the #core-editor meetings and bring up theme issues / discuss /share progress there instead?

Now that the #core-editor meetings have changed their format, and are much more discussion based, it seems like a good moment to make this transition. The block theme meetings have had a decline in participation recently, so now seems to be a good time to consider how best to move forward.

Please leave your feedback in the comments by Monday 28 February 2022 if you agree with;

  • Ending these meetings and to start participating more in the #core-editor chats, or
  • Continuing with these block theme meetings if they still hold value for you in their current form.
