Block Lite

A Free Gutenberg Theme

The Block Lite theme was created to take advantage of the new Gutenberg content editor.

Block Lite is a free WordPress theme designed for the new Gutenberg editor. It features a modern aesthetic and responsive framework. Each blog post displays within a proportional block of content.

The Gutenberg editor will be implemented into WordPress 5.0. It adds a new level of control over the appearance of your WordPress content. Dynamic content types are added using Gutenberg blocks. Those blocks can be manipulated into new styles and layouts within the editor. As a result, each “block” of content can have its own unique appearance.

The Block Lite is designed to work seamlessly with the new editor. Additionally, the demo was created entirely using Gutenberg. As a result, “blocks” are implemented throughout the demo content as examples.

Similarly, the Block Lite theme is compatible with the Organic Builder Widgets plugin for building unique pages. Each custom widget acts as a separate page section — such as a section for testimonials or featured products. Widgets are added within the WordPress customizer. So, the appearance of your website is updated in real-time as you make changes.

As WordPress grows, there is less need for themes with complex layouts and functionality. Particularly, because dynamic layouts are now achieved using Organic Builder Widgets and Gutenberg blocks. As a result, the Block Lite theme is simple to setup and use. However, with these new WordPress tools at your disposal, the layout of your website is only limited by your imagination.

If you’re in need of more customization options, page templates, functionality, and support — please consider the premium Block Theme.
