Part 2: Personalized Site Design with Full Site Editing and Theme Blocks


In this course, we are going to take our full site editing (FSE) skills to the next level. Full site editing empowers you to customize your entire site (not just posts and pages) with the familiar experience and extendability of blocks. This has been a big step forward as the user will have more control to customize the design of everything on your site.
