I am attempting to make this site using Gutenberg and the full site editor with few plugins. I think the power of blocks and FSE is underrated, and you can do a lot with just the basics. That being said, Divi, Elementor, and other premium page builder themes have their place.

You can see what plugins I’m using by hitting me with wp scan. Just kidding, I’ll break it down for you.

Plugins

The ubiquitous ACF

Doesn’t ACF end up in all projects eventually? I was just going to use post-meta fields, but I figured why put myself through that?

WP Create Block Plugin

A form plugin

(sorry script kiddies, you’ll have to guess which one).

There’s a lot you can do with just the basics

I have to admit I would like to use some of the Divi scroll animations. Those are pretty nice.
