Customize Your Entire Site With New Block Themes

Experiment with a new look for your site with themes created to take advantage of Full Site Editing.

In case you missed it, we’ve been rolling out a new set of powerful site design tools called Full Site Editing (or “FSE”) and it’s now available for all WordPress.com users!

Don’t worry if you’re just hearing about Full Site Editing for the first time. We’ve been releasing these new tools in a way that doesn’t actually require you to do anything with your existing site(s). If you are up for a change though, we’re happy to announce the launch of a brand new family of themes made specifically with Full Site Editing features in mind. As of this writing we have over two dozen themes available that support Full Site Editing.

These new themes have been designed with a wide variety of sites cases in mind. But their potential stretches well beyond their screenshots and demo sites. Because each theme is fully editable in the Site Editor, every one of these themes can be heavily customized to fit your site’s needs. You can start with theme that features single minimalist homepage, and then add as many menus and sidebars as you wish. Or, you can start with a complex business theme and strip it down to something minimal to suit your vision.

The Site Editor also includes a new feature called “Global Styles,” which allows you to edit site-wide settings for color, typography, and more. You’re free to change your theme’s default color scheme to whatever fits your mood, or even make all site text larger or smaller in a couple of clicks. To kick off this new feature, we’re also providing a few pre-built variations on some of these new themes.

All the new themes and variations can be found in the Theme Showcase. Or, if you’re starting a fresh site, they’ll be offered to you automatically in the site creation flow. This collection of themes is just the beginning, and we’re excited to continue launching a variety of diverse theme options for you. What would you like to see in the next set of themes on WordPress.com?

    “If you are up for a change though…” Hmmm. I don’t think the question is so much whether I, am up for a change, it’s whether my readers are up for a change. Because we know how users will abandon ship when there are significant changes to a social media site, the only makeover I’ve given my site is a change in color, font, background image, and logo. Won’t a full-site editor theme change leave the readers baffled and ready to jump overboard?

      It depends! Sometimes a redesign is a good way to show your visitors that you’re renewing focus on the site, or that you’re committed to improving their experience. For example, perhaps your site has shifted its purpose over time, or has outgrown its navigation menu structure and could use a new header to help folks navigate from page to page more effectively. A new theme might be the answer to those problems, and result in a fresh, easier-to-use site in the end.

    The live demo feature isn’t working, I can’t see a preview of what my site would look like without actually activating the theme.

    I think for testing, it was pointless to list some of these themes, since if you are trying to work out the best theme for your site on a test blog before moving over to your paid .com, then you can’t access the templates to try them out, or add edits to them in FSE without paying for them.
