Support » Fixing WordPress » New interface

  • Resolved triplemaya


    I have gone over to the wordpress 2022 theme.
    I totally cannot find my way about!
    I click on customise, and get a page with odd blocks, most of which have an error message.
    My original theme was Magazine Basic which I have used for some time. Had to upgrade as it is not supported and not functioning well.
    I had a menu in a sidebar. My first, principal issue with the new interface is I can find no reference to widgets, or sidebars, so the site just has none of this functionality.
    My biggest puzzle is I can find no way to go back to the customising interface I am a bit familiar with. That way I could switch between interfaces and hopefully find my way about.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    The 2022 theme is a new, FSE (Full Site Editing) theme and carries a new interface. Yeah, I find it really confusing, too. I recommend asking at so the theme’s developers and support community can help you with this.

    Thanks. Have done. Greatly appreciate the swift support.

    If your previous theme or your website build wasn’t block focused, then think about choosing one of the previous official wordpress theme releases?

    Maybe that will make more sense until you try out using blocks for regular posts first.

    Thank you for your time. I tried all of them! Could not get them to look how I want. The 2022 theme is perfect for what it shows. Totally minimal as standard. I just need to understand how it works. And I have also been wising up on how the FSE works. I just want a bit of help making the transition. In particular **how to make a widget work in a sidebar with FSE **. Perhaps you could offer me some suggestions along those lines? Thanks.



    There are some helpful video resources for learning Full Site Editing.

    *Daisy Olsen created a series “Zero to Block Theme” that is available on YouTube

    *WordPress Online Learning has videos on various topics
