I’m excited to share some new upgrades to the free Block Theme Builder for WordPress, which is designed for those who build block themes. These upgrades include a new pattern manager and the ability to upload custom screenshots. In this article, I’ll dive into each of these upgrades and explain how they can benefit WordPress users.
New Pattern Manager
The first upgrade to the Block Theme Builder is the new pattern manager which is built by wpengine. This feature allows users to create and upload their own block patterns, which can then be added to their themes. This means that other users who use the same theme can also use these patterns, making it easier to create visually appealing and consistent content.
Within the pattern manager, there are various controls available. Users can decide where a pattern is allowed within a site, whether it should be available in the block inserter, and the ability to use it as a reusable block. These controls give users more flexibility and customization options when using block patterns within their themes.
Uploading Custom Screenshots
The second upgrade to the Block Theme Builder is the ability to upload custom screenshots using the create block theme plugin. This feature allows users to create their own thumbnails for themes.
Benefits of Upgraded Block Theme Builder
These upgrades to the Block Theme Builder offer several benefits to WordPress users. By allowing users to create and upload their own block patterns, it makes it easier to create visually appealing and consistent content. It also gives users more customization options and greater flexibility when using block patterns within their themes.
The ability to upload custom screenshots also allows for more personalization within themes. This can help users showcase their themes in a unique way, making them stand out from other WordPress themes.
Overall, the upgraded Block Theme Builder offers greater flexibility, customization options, and personalization for WordPress users. Whether you’re building a website for personal or professional use, these upgrades can help you create a theme that is both visually appealing and functional.
