Part 2: Personalized Site Design and Theme Blocks


The Site Editor empowers you to edit your site cohesively. In Part 1 of this course series, you learned how to use block themes, block patterns and styles. In this course, we are going to delve deeper into theme blocks.

In addition to this, certain blocks are essential for presenting the site’s identity, which includes elements like the site logo, site title, and site tagline.
