Out of the loop since 2021 What did I miss?

Hey all. Haven’t built a custom wp site since 2021. I installed a local environment today and when checking out the files in 2023/templates/ I was shocked when I saw only .html files not .php files.

Panicking, thinking I was experiencing the Mandela Effect… I checked 2022, same thing. I was relieved when checking the 2021 theme and seeing the .php files I’ve come to know and love.

Case and point, where do I start/ what do I need to know / brush up on to catch up to modern WordPress stuff?
