See Rockbase in Action and Get Sneak Peek on What’s Coming Next

The launch of the Rockbase theme has garnered an incredible response so far! Although users are hesitant to switch to WordPress's full-site editor (FSE), we received a ton of positive feedback on it. I've shared my excitement for this new direction in a previous article, explaining why I believe it's a big step for WordPress users.

We've also received numerous custom website project requests from big names and well-known digital creators (will share more soon!). It's exciting to see the interest in transitioning their sites to WordPress and powering them with the Rockbase theme. This movement showcases the theme's versatility and the growing confidence in the full site editor's capabilities.

The full site editor is here to stay, marking a significant shift in how we think about website design and management within WordPress. We're embracing this change and have some exciting updates and sneak peeks to share with you about what's coming next for Rockbase.


A quick reminder: the Rockbase special launch promotion ends tomorrow (March 31st)! If you haven't signed up yet, now is the time to do so.

This is a unique opportunity for you to become an early member of our community, where you can provide feedback and share ideas on the direction we should take Rockbase.


What’s next for Rockbase?

Our main focus now is on improving documentation and education. We understand that many of you are new to the full site editor in WordPress, and we're committed to providing more tutorials, tips, and tricks. These resources will help you not only use the Rockbase theme more effectively but also master the WordPress editor in general.

We're also excited to announce that we're working on new pattern designs. While the current offerings serve as core patterns, our goal is to introduce extensions tailored to specific use cases. These include newsletters, podcasts, freelancing, coaching, services, and more.

Here's a sneak peek of what we're working right now:

Additionally, we're planning to include complete pages for common needs such as About, Pricing, Sales Page, Reviews, Features, and more. These pages will be directly accessible from the patterns in the editor, saving you hours of work in trying to assemble them yourself.

Stay tuned for previews of what's to come and get ready to enhance your website with these exciting new features from Rockbase.

Why I'm Excited About WordPress Again Like many web designers, my journey didn’t start with WordPress. I started with plain HTML/CSS and then tried on Joomla, but it wasn’t long before I discovered WordPress and immediately fell for its simplicity and power. That switch marked the beginning of an exciting career path for me, designing websites and themes that would later lead me to collaborate with Brian Gardner and the talented StudioPress team. Together, we crafted some of the most beloved...
