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:

2. Open Floor

@shivashankerbhatta asked whether themes are allowed to have a carousel or slider using the query block. We discussed that themes are not permitted to have custom blocks as users lose their inputs when switching the themes. Features such as carousel or slider should be done by plugins.
