Full Page Blocks

These are loaded with a blank template file to give a full page view.

Some of these can be found in the pattern directory otherwise, they can be found on the theme docs.

Talk block

A custom block (built into the theme) to display a talk with details and format links to the talk and slides and video. If the buttons are not given proper urls, they will be left off the block when rendered. The image can be added or left as is with the dashicon in place. View more in action on the speaking page.

Talk Label

Talk Title

Description of the talk with a lot of words so that the layout takes the full width and the image doesn’t take over the space. I guess that’s a bug I should solve – once I get the block to show up at all.

Job Experience Block

These are custom blocks as a variation on columns block with some preset values and layout. There are also some custom styles in place.

Skills Block

  • PHP β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜†
