  6. How FSE Works

  7. @jcasabona What is Full Site Editing? The goal of the

    full site editing project is to utilize the power of Gutenberg’s block model in an editing experience beyond post or page content. In other words, the idea is to make the entire site customizable. This editing mode will understand the structure of the site and provide ways to modify global elements like headers and footers. https://make.wordpress.org/design/handbook/focuses/full-site-editing/

  11. What You Should Think about if you create Themes

  12. @jcasabona Typography • Spend a lot of time on the

    typography • Not just the font faces, but spacing, line heights, letter spacing, etc. • Font selection can make or break a site, so help your users make it. • Don’t give options to choose a font. Decisions, not options.
  13. @jcasabona Color • Pick good color schemes - maybe offer

    options here for branding purposes. • Maybe write a function to fi gure out good color schemes based on a brand color. • Support dark mode! • Run this through the accessibility ringer. Make sure you have good contrast.
  14. @jcasabona Speed • Lean on the block editor for speed.

    • Don’t load too many resources • Spend a lot of time on critical CSS, optimizing your code and markup, and images • It should load quickly, even on 3G.
  15. @jcasabona User Experience (UX) • Since you don’t need to

    spend time building layouts, you can really test the theme to see how user-friendly it is. • Do lots of mobile testing and speed tests • Check to make sure buttons and links are obvious (underline links!!!) • Test for all sorts of content and conditions
  16. @jcasabona Help Users with Templates • Create a robust set

    of block patterns to give users a starting point • Page Templates are fl exible and editable with FSE, so create a few to help users get started
  17. Think About • Typography and Fonts • Colors and Color

    Palettes • Speed and Responsiveness • User Experience • Robust templates and block patterns
  18. What You can Do as an Agency to Best Serve

    Your Clients
  19. @jcasabona This won’t be like 5.0 • You still get

    to choose the theme - so supporting FSE will be up to us for a while • The popular themes will probably roll out FSE features slowly or maintain 2 versions for a while.
  20. That Said… • Take backups regularly. • Be ready for

    support questions.
  21. Support Your Clients • Educate them! Show them the right

    way to use the full site editor • Enable them! Don’t just turn it off. FSE helps users do more on their own. Less dependency on you is good! • Create resources with common terms and use cases for them.
  22. Work it into your offering • How can your agency

    add FSE to your offerings? • Are there related products or services you can create? • Block Pattern packs, default settings with theme.json, Page templates for landing pages, etc.
  23. Become the person who fixes the Robot
