Since terms like blocks and site editing are so radically different from what we've known and loved about WordPress for decades, I think it's a good idea to establish a basic understanding of what we're talking about before we jump right into block themes.
The reason we refer to the WordPress Editor as the Block Editor is because it enables us to construct posts and pages where each element— including text, photos, videos, headers, and footers—is put into the post using blocks that may be organised modularly to complete page layouts.
It developed from what is now referred to as the "classic" editor, which was more directly focused on entering material to be published on a page or post in a preset layout.
It's similar to how content and layout are combined when both are controlled via the WordPress Editor. Since both are immediately changeable in the WordPress Editor interface, we no longer need to rely on the editor for text and (more or less) theme templates for layout.
A block theme refers to a WordPress theme that comprises templates entirely composed of blocks, thereby enabling the utilization of the block editor to modify any aspect of the website, including the post content of diverse post types such as pages, posts, and so forth.
The WordPress Site Editor enables us to design and modify templates composed of blocks. The primary aim is to provide a collection of fundamental building blocks that can be utilized to construct a website on a global scale, such as a header component. This may include blocks for the slogan, main menu, and site logo. With the site editor, we can completely redesign the website's overall aesthetic without writing a single line of code, either by altering an existing theme or creating a new block theme.Previously, creating themes necessitated the use of various PHP templates. However, this is no longer the case. WordPress now offers a user interface for theme "development" that is readily available.
