The LightSpeed team is thrilled to announce that their new WordPress Full Site Editing theme, LSX Design, has been released on WP.org.
With LSX Design, LightSpeed stays at the forefront of the WordPress evolution, delivering a cutting-edge theme that fully embraces WordPress Blocks & Full Site Editing.
Reviewed and approved by WordPress.org, LSX Design provides a robust design system that features reusable design components for WordPress and WooCommerce, encompassing typography, colour palettes, and layout structures. Available for download at https://lsx.design/, the theme also showcases a comprehensive suite of Blocks, Patterns, Templates, and Styles.
To strengthen our expertise in Block theme development and Full Site Editing, the LightSpeed team was mentored by Fränk Klein Principal Engineer at @humanmadeltd for WPDevelopment.courses. The skills imparted through this collaboration are evident in the seamless integration and functionality of LSX Design.
The theme embraces the evolution of WordPress Blocks and Full Site Editing, a core feature of WordPress that allows every part of a website to be customised using blocks. This move eliminates the need for specialised coding knowledge, providing a new level of control over site appearance, directly from the WordPress admin panel.
Full Site Editing: The New Wave of WordPress Design and Development
LSX Design emphasises the power of Wordpress Core’s Full Site Editing, which is the latest evolution in WordPress, providing a more unified, flexible way of building and customising a website. With LSX Design’s focus on FullSiteEditing, users can control every part of their website, from the header to the footer, using blocks. This transformational approach gives developers, designers and agencies unparalleled creative freedom and functionality.
For this reason LightSpeed sought to develop their own Block theme.

Many of them have dark and light variations.
