I was able to scratch two itches this past week: Start to learn how full-site editing works in WordPress and update my homepage in the process.
I selected a monochrome style variation and got to grips with tweaking parts of the template, including individual blocks and group containers . I stuck with the suggested layout for the most part with a logo, title, tagline and four standard buttons directing visitors to four locations, three of which are on my main blog. All of this was relatively simple in the Gutenberg editor. Finally, I edited the footer and header. This was far easier now with no child theme required. All told, it took less than 30 minutes to go from installation to hitting publish.
I am really pleased with how it looks and even more pleased that it was designed in Sweden 🇸🇪 and is hosted in Germany 🇩🇪 – making my homepage a truly European 🇪🇺 affair.
