Options for Block Themes


Template Editor

With WordPress v5.9 the first default theme with Full Site Editing was launched … Twenty Twenty-Two.

This plugin expands on the functionality to manage (export / import) templates that are not part of the theme without having to have a child theme.

Having a block theme also removes links to the Customizer.

This plugin changes that!

This plugin will also enable the Template Editor in Gutenberg for full site editing for any theme!

Reinstate Customizer Links

Activating the plugin will inject the «Customize» links back into the «Dashboard – Appearance» and Admin Bar locations for WordPress prior to v6.0. There is an option to disable this if you prefer.

Edit Existing Templates

Once you’ve installed this plugin, head over to «Dashboard – Appearance – Manage Templates» where you can change the title, description and name of customized templates from the active theme or any other theme.

Duplicate Templates

Save templates as a copy to the active theme.

This allows you to use the WordPress Template Hierarchy to name your templates so that they can be used for custom post types, custom taxonomies, specific post or pages or anything you like!

Delete Templates

Easily delete templates from the active theme or any other theme. This doesn’t delete the orginal theme template, just any customizations you have made.

Download Templates

Download your template as .json files to back them up or to migrate them to another WordPress site.

Upload Templates

Upload template .json files to the active theme. This allows you to restore a template you backed up or migrate a template to another WordPress site.

Download Global Styles

Download your global styles as .json files to back them up or to migrate them to another WordPress site or theme.

Upload Global Styles

Upload global styles .json files to the active theme. This allows you to restore global styles you backed up or migrate global styles to another WordPress site.

Sticky Header

Easily enable a sticky header / menu in full site editor themes like Twenty Twenty-Two.

Animate Site Logo

Enable an option to shrink the header site logo when you scroll down the page.

Add Google Fonts to Editor

NB: This is only relevant to WordPress v5.8 – v6.4 and classic themes as the Font Library was introduced into core in v6.5

Choose Google Fonts and add them to the full screen editor global styles options!

Remove Block Theme Fonts

NB: This is only relevant to WordPress v5.8 – v6.4 as the Font Library was introduced into core in v6.5

This plugin will allow you to choose which theme fonts are included in the FSE editor and if not required will prevent them from being loaded on the front end.


Easily use this plugin to enable the Template Editor on your site …

1) Install «Template Editor» automatically or by uploading the ZIP file.
2) Activate the plugin through the «Plugins» menu in WordPress.
3) Start using the Template Editor with your theme.

The great plugin «Options for Block Themes» offers some interesting things that are very interesting for users who create their websites with a block theme such as Twenty Twenty-Four. For me, an important aspect was the shrinked header. But the other options are also very helpful because they simplify the management of block themes.

Not for rookies as it takes a little bit of fiddling but this fiddling is necessary and not a lot. If you have any experience at all and want to create new or modified template copied this plugin is the bomb.

This plugin has been a huge help to me because we run multiple websites, and even with the Site Editor making all of the sites identical would be tiresome. In our case, it was simply a matter of installing Template Manager on both sites, then one click to select a template on the donor site, and a second click to download it. Then (in the recipient site) after a click or two to delete modifications to the old templates, a final click to upload the new one. All that then remains is to edit a page and select the new template in the setting dropdown. It saves hours and hours of work!
