First Thoughts: Twenty Twenty Three Theme

In celebration of WordPress 6.1 Beta 1, I updated the sites theme here to use the still very much in development Twenty Twenty Three. I’m still experimenting with Full Site Editing but I think this process has gotten better in the last year.

I do wish I had an All Terms block – A block that gets and lists all terms for a post and ignores the type of term. Let’s treat Categories, Tags, Post Formats, and custom taxonomies the same. At least I want to right now but I also don’t want to lose all the content I have in the way I have it since knowing me, I’ll likely change my mind about presentation later. Might have to build this.

I found the “Alternative Blog Template” to be a great base for the presentation of content. I wanted to use it on the homepage, so I converted it to a template part and then installed it on the homepage. It took quite a bit of save, switch tabs, refresh to get it looking how I wanted (and really made me long for the Customizer aka Classic Full Site Editing), but the process only took about 15min.

Overall, I have the most minimalist of all my site presentations. I like it for now, but I think I’ll continue to play with it. It’s lacking color which feels odd as someone who plays with color, but for now I like it.

One thing that I really like about Full Site Editing is that while this is a WordPress default theme, it’s also MY WordPress default theme. While there will be many sites that will use this theme and all will have commonalities, due to the decisions I made in the WordPress admin, this version is mine and mine alone. This is my WordPress. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

  4. WordPress 6.4 comes out next week and to prepare for it, I’ve updated this site to use the new Twenty Twenty-Four default theme. I’ve used most of the default themes WordPress has supplied since Twenty Ten. One of the first things I saw that I liked is how many patterns are available. All together there […]
