Description

In 6.3 "Template Parts" are now found under Patterns and rumored to eventfully be called
"Patterns"? Whoa! NOT GOOD! It is becoming WAY TOO confusing for my clients.

PLEASE keep Template Parts ("Partial Templates" or "Sub-Templates" if you like) under the Templates section. If you think is better to call them "Partial Templates" or "Sub-Templates" that could be good.

Here is what I’m suggesting:

Patterns

WP Library

-xxxx
-xxxx

user created

-xxxx
-xxxx

Templates

Full Templates

-Page
-Blog
-Blog List
-404
-user created
-etc.

Partial Templates or “Sub-Templates” or “Template Parts”

-Header
-Footer
-user created
-etc.

Thank you,
Douglas Knoyle

This sounds like a reasonable request. With so many changes happening in WP, the less confusion the better.

I tend to agree. My clients are used to using the blocks and the specific blocks I designed and saved for them. This will require another learning curve to show them how to find their specific blocks in patterns.

I agree wholeheartedly. Why the need for patterns? Keep templates as templates.
