The New editor in WordPress 5.0 has been a major milestone in the most popular CMS on the internet.
The main change has been the new 'Block' editor.
Love it, or hate it... it's here to stay.

But that's not to say that we are stuck with the default blocks & choices.

For this Meetup, we will look at how we can create custom blocks, and restrict blocks on a site build.
We will also look at setting up custom colour choices to match the site branding, and give more (or less) control over colour choices for our blocks.

As always, we will also have our regular ‘WordPress Surgery’ for anyone with any WordPress related questions.

If you have a topic you would like us to discuss at a future Meetup, please let us know.

Call for Speakers: If you have something you would like to demonstrate or a topic you would like to speak on, let us know.


Our regular monthly Meetup for WordPress users in and around the Belfast area.
Anyone with any interest in WordPress is welcome.
Whether you’ve just heard about WordPress, and want to know more. Or if you’re a seasoned WordPress developer, designer or blogger, and want to meet like-minded individuals.
Come along and find out what's going on in your local WordPress and wider community!

Besides WordPress discussions, we will also talk about user experience (UX), Marketing, Analytics, CSS, Web Development and a variety of other topics.
So, if you are running a website / online shop / blog or want to create one, join the group and come along to discover how WordPress can benefit you or your website, and get specific advice on any WordPress questions you have.

WordPress Surgery: Are you having an issue with a theme or plugin? Or do you want to know the best way to tackle a specific problem with your WordPress site?
Bring along your laptop, and questions and we can open them up to all attendees to hopefully help you.
