With block patterns introduced in WordPress 5.5, we now have the opportunity to add some patterns to our older default themes.

Let's consider adding some patterns to Twenty Seventeen. Perhaps some common design patterns found on business websites?

Four potential pattern ideas:

  • Recent news, with heading, separator, spacer, and latest posts block.
  • A two-column pattern mimicking the two-column layout option, with heading text on the left, and a large and regular sized paragraph on the right.
  • The three columns paragraph + button pattern included in core, but with a background color adn some added separators.
  • A CTA pattern using a group block, heading, paragraph, and button.

  • Milestone changed from 5.6 to Future Release

In talking with @melchoyce and the core-theme team, we are punting this ticket to Future Release.

If any maintainer or committer feels this can be resolved in time, or wishes to assume ownership during a specific cycle, feel free to update the milestone accordingly.

Whoopsie, Mel and I got our wires crossed. Reverting to keep in milestone. Design is done. Has a patch. Sorry for the confusion.

This pattern ("Contact us") feels a little tall in-context; maybe we could adjust the min-height to 700 instead of 900?

Just noting that I tested the PR & left a comment about an issue that needs fixing.

  • Fixes pattern names.
  • Gets php docbloc in sync with other file headers.
  • Adds textdomain to translations.
  • Updates text so it uses no "lorem ipsum".
  • Fixes images.
  • Adds image license information.

I built on @onemaggie's PR — fixed the bugs noted there, as well as @melchoyce's comment about the Contact Us pattern's min-height.

Also, let's please change the text strings. The ones in the latest PR came from the theme demo here — they seemed better than lorem ipsum, but they're not great.

Thank you @bridgetwillard! I updated the patch on GitHub to include those copy changes. Here's how that looked:


With the new copy, two of these patterns produced single words on their own line — I'd prefer to avoid this design-wise, so I trimmed the copy there slightly:



Let me know if you have alternate suggestions for those — I'm happy to update again if need be.
