The world’s most popular website builder just got even better

With WordPress and the Ollie block theme, you can create beautiful, customizable websites with a few clicks, not code.

A new era of WordPress has arrived. Are you ready?

For the past few years, a bold initiative has been underway to modernize WordPress with a powerful content and site editing engine, and now, it’s here.

Instead of building your site with code, you can use the new site editor to build your site with blocks, pattern designs, and a fully-customizable design system. You just need a WordPress block theme to get started.

That’s where Ollie comes in. Ollie is a powerful new WordPress block theme that enables easy-peasy site building within the native WordPress interface, no page builder plugin required.

Best of all, Ollie is super lightweight, performant, and its pixel-perfect, responsive design system ensures your websites look great on all devices. Oh yeah, and it’s totally free! Just look at all the new WordPress features you get out of the box:

Site Editor

Design and launch your entire site with the new WordPress Site editor and a block theme. No coding necessary, unless you want to.

Pattern Designs

Patterns are a collection of pre-designed blocks that you can customize with your own content to quickly design pages.

Global Styles

Easily change the styles of individual blocks or make site-wide style changes to color palettes or typography with global styles.

Template Parts

With template parts, you can easily create, edit, and manage global sections of your site like headers, footers, and sidebars.

Blocks

Blocks are content elements like paragraphs, buttons, columns, and images that you use to create content and page designs.

Site Export

Once you’ve designed your site with the WordPress site editor, you can easily export it and import it into another site with a few clicks.
