The Editor option, also referred to as the Full Site Editor (FSE), allows users to build and extend an entire website using blocks.

The Full Site Editor (FSE) will only be available if you’re using a theme that is specifically built to make use of its functionality, such the default Twenty Twenty-Three theme or Twenty Twenty-Four themes. For all other (non-FSE) themes, the Editor menu option simply won’t appear. At the moment, there are a limited number of themes available in the WordPress Themes Directory that are specifically built for the new Full Site Editor, but this will obviously improve over time.

Whilst this guide was never intended to be a guide for developers, or for building or modifying themes, it will be helpful for anyone who plans to use the Full Site Editor, to have a basic understanding of the different Templates and Template Parts that make up a Theme.
