Do you plan on making any videos for Twenty Twenty-Two theme with Full Site Editing?
I’ve been testing Twenty Twenty-Two theme for a while and I like it.
However, it’s very different from how we did things with the customizer.
You’re absolutely correct. WordPress 6.0 continues the development of Full Site Editing, which was first released in WordPress 5.9. As you know, Twenty Twenty-Two is a completely different kind of theme than we’ve ever seen in WordPress before. It’s a “block theme,” which means it supports Full Site Editing.
Block themes, or FSE themes, no longer utilize the Customizer. Instead, they use the new Theme Editor, which promises to allow site owners to create their own headers, footers, and page layouts.
However, Full Site Editing is still very much in its infancy, which is why it carries the “beta” label. It’s not ready for prime time just yet. And there are currently just 72 themes that support Full Site Editing. Compare that to the tens of thousands of themes that are available today that don’t support Full Site Editing.
This means that the vast majority of site owners will not have Full Site Editing enabled, but will continue to see the Customizer as they have for years now.
Rather than creating unecessary confusion for site owners by re-recording all of our videos to cover Full Site Editing, we’ve decided to continue maintaining our current WordPress 101 course… but we are creating a handful of videos that will provide a basic introduction to Full Site Editing for anyone who wants to live on the edge and try it now.
So, in answer to your question, yes, we do plan to create videos for the Twenty Twenty-Two theme and more specifically, Full Site Editing. But it will be a while longer before we update the entire WordPress 101 course to cover it in depth.
This is the first time in our 14-year history we’ve departed from our strategy of always supporting the “out-of-the-box” WordPress experience. Until the core team has finalized the UI and resolved the many bugs and accessibility issues with Full Site Editing, we feel it’s more helpful to cover the experience that the majority of WordPress users will have today.
Stay tuned for the new videos!
