I hope you’re well today, I just started the course 2 days ago, and it is really well designed and very helpful so far. Thanks a lot for doing such a great job for newbies like me, who want to learn Web Development!
I have now watched the video lessons for 3 (‘Course Overview, ‘Core Gutenberg Architecture’ and ‘A High Level Overview of Blocks’) out of the 5 tutorials for the WordPress Block Development Course. You strongly recommend one should download the two plugins needed for the course.
The links however, both seem to point towards the same file, which is called ‘gutenberg-master.zip’.
Does this file cover the content for both of these plugins?
-registerBlockType Demo Plugin Github Repo
-Example Blocks Plugin Github Repo
Many thanks for your help Zac!July 14, 2020 at 12:57 pm #141946
These should be the links you need:

Many thanks for your reply to my last query which was quite useful.
Zac, In the 3rd section of the ‘WordPress Block Development’ course (entitled: ‘Working with Register Block Type’), the 2nd of the 9 videos is entitled: ‘Register Block Type; Title Setting’. In the first 2 mns, you demonstrate how the ‘Register Block Type’ block, and the ‘Demo Block’ can be activated on a page, on a Gutenberg site. I have a Gutenberg site, I uploaded these plugins to my ‘Plugins Admin Area’, they both displayed perfectly well. At the 2:02mn mark you suggest: ‘So if we jump into our plugin and come under ‘blocks’ and ‘demo’, and ‘index.js’, we can see here: ‘title’…’ At this point, it appears that you are into the Atom text editor for code, from which you are displaying the plugins structure. My queries are:
1- How did you upload the plugin to the Atom code editor?
2- Which plugins should I upload to the code editor?
3 Do I have to use Atom as a code editor, or could I use Sublime Text for example?
4- Is there a thread on the forum which you could point me to, where you may have already answered similar questions?
Many thanks in advance for your help with these queries Zac,

You can use any code editor you like, it should not matter.August 1, 2020 at 3:25 pm #143440
Many thanks for your reply, I just wanted to confirm with you which plugin it was, that you did upload to your text editor, and which best practice you might recommend, to complete this task please?
Thanks in advance for your help with this query,

I believe these are the two plugins you are looking for:
I am not sure what you mean by “upload to your text editor”
These plugins should be installed on a WordPress site and then you open whichever plugin you are working with in your code editor from the

Thank you very much for your kind reply, I can just about imagine how busy you must be, so I’m very grateful that you should take the time to check my queries and help out:)
I will follow the links you kindly sent and hopefully keep on moving forward through the next chapters.
Thank a lot Zac!August 4, 2020 at 5:55 pm #143466
This is a short transcript of Julien’s answer (51:25mn):
Zac, could you kindly share your thoughts on this conversation you had with Julien?
Also, it seems to me that Julien is suggesting that it might be advisable to look into REACT, before learning into WordPress Development, would you say this a fair assumption?
Many thanks indeed for your thoughts on this matter Zac!August 4, 2020 at 6:20 pm #143467
These forums are really just for support with issues you’re having with courses here, so this is a bit beyond scope of support…
That talk was a little old. Nowadays you HAVE to know React as a modern WordPress developer. What order you do it in depends on your personal learning path and journey. The important thing is you learn it.
Hope that helps and best of luck!August 5, 2020 at 4:21 pm #143470
Many thanks for your kind reply to my last query, and for explaining it was probably outside the scope of what the forum should be used for:)
I will take on board the fact that you mentioned that React must be learned as a prerequisite for a modern WordPress dev, and incorporate that in my Block Development course studies.
As usual Zac, thank you very much for your help and support and I hope you have a nice day!
