What is WordPress?

The very renowned website builder, WordPress, has helped many major businesses and people to create their websites and blogs. It is only one of the site builders and content management systems that users can download and install for free with its unique features which make WP the most popular content management system in use today.


According to Colorlib, around 810 million websites use WordPress as of 2023, according to our best estimations. This represents around 43% of all websites.

The foundation is updated regularly by the concerned website developers ensuring that the software becomes more user-friendly and seamlessly assists you in your WordPress ecommerce development and WordPress plugin development services, therefore after 6.1 Beta, proudly enters WordPress Beta 6.2.

Let’s have a look at what elements is this version of WordPress plugin development services offering to make lives easier.

Features of WordPress Beta 6.2

  • Full Site Editor

The new full site editor feature in WordPress will come out of beta with the final release of WordPress 6.2, making it stable for the community to create block-based themes and experiment with their own WordPress websites, plugins, or themes.

  • Browse and Choose Templates to Edit

The Site Editor previously loaded the Home template of your theme by default. This left many newbies wondering how and which template or template’s part they are required to edit.

With WordPress 6.2, the site editor will load the template preview window first. From here, you can browse different templates and see a preview of what it looks like.

After that simply click on the Edit button to start working on the selected template and once you are done editing the template, don’t forget to click on the Save button to make your changes go live. Then click on the WordPress logo in the upper-left corner of the screen to bring back the template browser sidebar.

If you think that you still need to edit a different template, then you can choose it from here, or otherwise, you can simply click on the WordPress logo again and exit the Site Editor.

  • Add Custom CSS to Your Theme or Specific Blocks

Earlier in the last versions of WordPress releases, the site editor hid the ‘Theme Customizer’ which made it challenging for users to add custom CSS to their themes. The recent WordPress plugin development services will allow users to switch to the Styles panel and select Custom CSS from the menu.

Users will be able to save Custom CSS from here that applies to their entire theme and even if you wanted to save custom CSS that only applied to a specific block, WordPress 6.2 will allow you to add custom CSS for specific blocks. For that, you will have to move your cursor to the Style panel, and click on the Blocks menu.

A list of blocks would be visible on the next screen, where you will simply click on the block to apply your custom CSS. Under the block styles, click on the Additional CSS tab. You may use the free WPCode plugin if you want to conditionally add CSS or keep your custom styles outside of theme-specific settings.

  • New and Improved Navigation Menus

Users found the addition of navigation menus in the full site editor a little problematic which WordPress 6.2 will try to solve by improving the way users can create and manage menus while using the editor.

Instead of editing the menu items inline, addition, removal, and editing of menu items in a sub panel can now be easily done under the Navigation block.

Add a new menu item from here by clicking on the Add Block (+) button you can also just drag and drop menu items to rearrange them.

Simply click on the three-dot menu and then choose a menu you created earlier or create a new one to create a new blank menu or reload an older one.

  • Colors to Indicate Template Parts Being Edited

WordPress 6.2 will also highlight the template part that you are working on, and that changes will be made on a side-wide, global scale.


The element will be bordered in a color and have a template part icon attached.

This will help users realize that instead of editing the specific page or post, they are now editing a template part and this change will affect other pages on their site as well.

  • See Styles for All Blocks in The Style Book

The site editor in the new version will ship with a ‘Style Book.’ Simply switch to the Styles panel and then click on the style book icon. This will show you all the blocks, and how they are styled in your theme. You can locate a block much more quickly this way, and then click to edit it directly. After that, you can change its appearance and style and customize it to your own requirements.

  • Copy and Paste Block Styles

The editing of block styles and appearance has become so much easier now, there is a need to copy and paste these styles.

WordPress 6.2 will allow you to simply copy block styles by clicking on block options and then selecting ‘Copy Styles’.

After that, you can click to edit a different block and select ‘Paste styles’ from the block options. Your browser will ask for permission to allow your website to view the contents of the clipboard. You need to click ‘Allow’ to continue.

  • Classic Widgets Import as Template Parts in Block Themes

Users with classic widget themes lost their widgets when they switched to a block theme. WordPress 6.2 will provide a nice fallback to that by converting legacy widgets into special Template Parts when switching themes.

You’ll need to enter the site editor and edit the template where you want to import the widgets. After that, create a new template part by clicking on the Add New Block button (+).



With so many exciting features we are sure that you are waiting for WordPress 6.2 beta version as much as others are and this will surely create an impact on ecommerce.


Good luck in designing your site with WordPress plugin development services!
