On-Demand Webinar – Between a block and a hard place: Custom blocks made easy.

As you well know, working in WordPress gives you the ability to create beautiful, functional websites with loads of flexibility and customisation. Using the relatively new block editor provides a more modern, easy-to-use interface for content creation. 

While there are some brilliant block library plugins out there (like our very own Genesis Blocks), to really provide that “secret sauce” and make your websites sizzle, it helps to know how to create your own custom blocks.

That’s where this webinar comes in!

Hear from two of WP Engine’s foremost Gutenberg experts. You will learn how to master custom blocks in WordPress and feel ready to build even more amazing websites.

Oh, and one more thing. The only technical chops you’ll need is a familiarity with HTML and CSS. No complicated Javascript frameworks or confusing build tools. If you can tinker with a theme, you can build your very own blocks.

Experience Level: Beginner, Intermediate

Duration: 40 minutes

What you’ll learn:

  • What’s coming in future versions of WordPress
  • How to get started building your own custom blocks
  • Demonstrations of building a few custom blocks
