The purpose of this test data is to test block changes across WordPress versions and Gutenberg versions. It is a complement to the other theme test data files.

A use case would be when you want to test the typography options of a block, and you don’t want to spend time adding the blocks and changing all the settings manually.

The blocks were generated using WordPress 6.4.3 with a block theme with the most permissive theme.json settings possible. All presets are the defaults: Colors, duotones, font sizes, spacing sizes, shadows, width etc.

  • Each block has its own post, and is listed under its category: Design, Theme, Widget etc.
  • Inner blocks such as the column, button, and comment blocks do not have their own posts.
  • Blocks that support borders have a tag called «Border».

Setting up

Download the file, activate the WordPress importer plugin and import the file.

  • If you want to test the Author Biography block, you need to manually add a biography to the «theme reviewer» user.
  • If you want to test the template only blocks, such as archive title, you need to add these manually to a template.

Tips for testing

When you use block themes with different settings and templates, or a classic theme, you may find that not everything works as you expected. This is not necessarily a bug with the block, the theme, or the test file. If you suspect that there are bugs, it will require further testing.

For example:

  • If your theme does not have a spacing preset called «7», then spacing preset 7 will not work in your theme.
  • If your theme does not support drop cap you will not be able to turn drop cap off and on.
  • If the content block in your single template is not set to full width, then a full width block will not span the full width of the browser window.
