8:19 Q: What about hover colour for links?
11:35 Q. Hamburger icon. Why only the bun?
The hamburger icon for the navigation menu only has two horizontal lines. It’s deliberate but we don’t know why. Maybe it’s a gluten free bun.
Q. Is some of the style being cached?
Mike Murphy was following the demo in real time, viewing cwiccer.com as I was making the updates. He commented that whereas I was seeing the correct output his view was incorrect. He questioned whether or not he needed to clear a cache. The answer is that WordPress is caching the stylesheet in transients. They clear after a minute. This explains what he saw.
19:55 Q. How to right align the footer navigation menu full width?
21:35 Q. What’s the purpose of these width adjusting bars?
23:01 Q. Can you just delete Proudly powered by WordPress?
23:40 Q. What about a Copyright notice?
31:26 Q. Are these patterns part of the page or template?
They become part of the template.
42:27 Q. Can we use these blocks in a classic theme?

Even a child knows how valuable the forest is. The fresh, breathtaking smell of trees. Echoing birds flying above that dense magnitude. A stable climate, a sustainable diverse life and a source of culture. Yet, forests and other ecosystems hang in the balance, threatened to become croplands, pasture, and plantations.
Suggested Patterns work for… Social icons and the Query Loop block.
Question: Can we reproduce the Past events widget, which used the
bw_related shortcode with the Query Loop block?
We need to show:
- 3 posts per page
- of the custom post type
- ordered by descending
- where the date is in the past.
Answer: TL;DR NO.

Earlier today Andrew Leonard and I were playing with the
