Support » Plugin: Gutenberg » Header & Footer Control ??

    (@cyclonetheme)


    I am a Theme Developer in WP.org. In past, I use customizer for header, footer and other parts of the site. With the release of Gutenberg and WordPress 5.0, I am thinking of shifting it to the blocks. My main concern is some sections will be in blocks and some will be in customizer( Header and Footer ). Is there a way or is there a plan to control the header and footer from the blocks. The widgets are coming into blocks, so will the control of header and footer will also be added ??

    How far this will go in phase 2 is yet to be decided, but I would say having eventually total control over all site content is a goal of this project. In theory a header and footer are just content areas for blocks.

    That type of functionality isn’t available now and you are right the stepping stone of having widgets is coming in phase 2. I would also point to this: https://make.wordpress.org/core/2018/12/08/9-priorities-for-2019/. Where it says:

    Providing a way for themes to visually register content areas, and exposing that in Gutenberg.

    This opens a lot of theme possibilities. I would encoruage you to follow along and get involved in this. As a theme developer you are going to have a great insight to share.
