Of Mastodon and the WordPress site editor

Happy Friday! Last week I spent some time digging into the block editor and trying to understand the #!&@#ing logic behind alignments and widths. I started by  venting on Twitter  but ended up writing a post about what I’ve learned. If you’re coming from the Bootstrap/Tailwind mindset for widths/containers, I recommend giving it a read:  “Normal” width websites in the block editor 

Fellow WordPress developer Teron Bullock is one of my favorite people and we got to have this wide-ranging discussion all about WordPress 6.1 (and WCUS and Gutenberg in general) over on Press the Issue, the MasterWP Podcast:  What’s Exciting about WordPress 6.1?  

Are you  enjoying the slow-motion car wreck that is Twitter as much as I am? Woo boy. However, if you’re into the Mastodon thing, I’m also trying that out as  @[email protected] , at least until I see the best approach for maybe self-hosting my own account via WordPress / Activity Pub. Please connect with me as I’m looking for new WordPress friends to follow.

Finally, a quick teaser: I’m working on a new project with one of my WordPress heroes and am hoping to share it very soon. Stay tuned! A few quick links before I go:

That’s all for now. Have a great week and reach out here or on Twitter (or Mastodon) to talk about all things WordPress.

I’m sharing the best resources and tutorials for developers building in and on the block editor.
