Is a typical Sidebar Menu website format possible in WordPress Block Editor/FSE?

Hi all,

Currently building within Twenty Twenty-Three using the block editor – seems great. Messed around with it before but now have some proper work to do on it, am I totally missing something here but is it possible to have a regular left side vertical sidebar menu, content on the right type thing? Then on mobile it’s just a single column, stacked content, burger menu etc.

I’m using Patterns and template parts fine within a minimal Twenty Twenty Three horizontal menu setup, but am trying to switch this basic format around. Feels like it can be done within the Header pattern, but I’m either missing a step or it’s not currently possible.

Anyone had experience with that or know where to look? Image attached to illustrate very basically.


thanks 🙂
