  1. At about 40ish minutes you credited Rich Tabor with creating Atomic Blocks. That’s actually from Mike McAlister who also does Array Themes.

    Rich has his Tabor Gutenberg theme at Themebeans and the Coblocks plugin.

    Both are doing awesome Gutenberg work. 👍


    1. You are correct on both points. Apologies for the mistake. His name was the first that came to mind haha.
