About the event

Even though I just rebuilt The Admin Bar website in January of 2021 with Oxygen, I've since moved all my work to blocks leaving TAB's website as my only Oxygen site. I knew that eventually The Admin Bar website would have to follow suit, but until now the functionality in GenerateBlocks just wasn't capable of doing what I needed for all the dynamic data we have in place.

Besides streamlining my tech-stack, like many websites, this one had gone through several big changes leaving some parts mix-matched and bastardized which was negatively affecting the continuity of the site as a whole.

With the release of GenerateBlocks 1.5, my block stack had everything it needed to pull off the dynamic functionality of The Admin Bar website (including custom post types for the podcast, endorsements, & events) and I completed rebuilding the site from the ground up (yep, a fresh WordPress install!) in 4 days.

Join us live on July 8th as special guest Dave Foy interviews me about the process of rebuilding The Admin Bar website with GenerateBlocks, where we'll talk about:

  • Why it was rebuilt using blocks
  • The design process (in Figma)
  • The full plugin stack
  • The inner workings of how it's all put together
  • Some of the limitations & concessions
  • Live Attendee Q&A

I'm looking forward to showing off a few of the tricks I pulled off with dynamic content, templating, and how I streamlined things to make them easier to edit on the backend and a better user experience on the front-end!
