Meet the CoBlocks WordPress Theme

Meet the CoBlocks WordPress Theme

The CoBlocks WordPress theme is a Gutenberg WordPress theme built to leverage the new block editing experience coming soon in WordPress 5.0. In short, combined with the CoBlocks WordPress plugin for content marketers, writing in WordPress is finally fun again.

You’ve probably noticed a number of similarities to my blog and the new CoBlocks WordPress theme. Although there are a lot of visual styles deployed from Tabor, CoBlocks is trimmed down quite significantly.

Theme Features

The primary feature of CoBlocks is that it’s a Gutenberg-friendly WordPress theme. I’ve taken the time to ensure all facets of Gutenberg are compatible and are styled appropriately.

CoBlocks 100% supports the upcoming WordPress Block Editor, Gutenberg. And as one of first Gutenberg WordPress themes, CoBlocks has set the standard for the future of WordPress themes altogether.

I’ve also styled the experience within the Gutenberg editor to ensure it matches the theme’s front end styling one-to-one. This makes for a completely familiar, and highly intuitive editing experience in WordPress.

CoBlocks Companion Plugin

The CoBlocks WordPress plugin is a collection of page builder Gutenberg blocks for content marketers, built by the fine folks at ThemeBeans (me!). CoBlocks includes the following set of blocks:

  • Accordion Block
  • Alert Block
  • Author Block
  • Dynamic HR Block
  • Gif Block
  • GitHub Gist Block
  • Pricing Table Block
  • Spacer Block
  • Social Sharing Block

Building on top of the new foundational change in content creation afforded by Gutenberg, CoBlocks leverages the new block editor to add even more functionality to the editor. Space out content, drop in social icons, add gifs — all of these, and more, are new blocks powered by CoBlocks.

My vision with CoBlocks is to create content blocks that deliver a first-rate experience for writers, content marketers and publishers. And combined with the CoBlocks WordPress theme, that vision has become a very real and refined experience all around.
