Version 2.1 of the University of Illinois WordPress theme introduces three new WordPress Blocks (and a few blocks related to them):

  • The Hero Block
  • The Clickable Card Block (and Clickable Card Deck)
  • The Accordion Block (and Accordion Deck)

The 2.1 release also includes a host of minor bugfixes, many related to harmonizing formatting options made available in the WordPress editor with the new University of Illinois Web Components 2.0 toolkit.css that was added in the 2.0 release of this theme. This release also increases the parity between the page/post display while editing content in the WordPress Block Editor and the final rendered view of the page.
