Custom Content Width


Occasionally, themes forget to set the $content_width variable in functions.php. If they forgot, or if you’d like to change the value that they’ve set, this will let you in your Settings > Media screen.


  1. Install and activate the plugin via the WordPress Plugin Installer.
  2. Go to the Settings > Media screen, and set the Content Width!
  3. There is no step three!



My mosaic galleries were being displayed at the default 500px width because of my theme, and I couldn’t figure out how to fix it. This plugin did the trick.
