I’m starting to understand the WordPress Twenty Twenty-Two theme, and I can’t imagine theme developers are happy about it. Just like how Squarespace moved away from “themes” to “blocks,” so too has WP just made everything into modules and template parts. It sounds like a good idea, but there’s definitely a learning curve, especially if you’re too proud to go looking for documentation.

It’s a pretty deep rabbit hole, and I could spend all month working on it, but ultimately all I need is a simple page to display these notes. No menus or sidebars or complicated archive pages. Just dates and words and sarcasm.
