  • That work area is the block editor, just so you know.
    The published page indicates that the content is alignfull which means that it is wide, but also that you are using something called ‘getwid’ since that is in all the block names for the content.
    If you changed themes, the new theme might not style the alignfull class, so it isn’t wide despite having that class on it from before the switch.
    A lot of themes will try to style the editor like the front end. When in doubt, use the Preview button before publishing.

    Thanks for looking at this for me. I understand your comments but am confused as to why the appearance of my block editor has changed (it is the same on all my pages / posts and I haven’t edited them for a while). My block editor area used to look like that of my staging site (as per picture). Ie. I had a much bigger area to work and review in. I notice some of my buttons have also lost their centre alignment. If I have to I will restore an earlier version of my site. Thanks again.

    You didn’t exactly say the order of what happened, so it’s difficult to help.
    The editor provides default styles that are overridden by the theme. The full width classes have to be supported by the theme (or a plugin) in order to appear as options.
    It would appear that your staging and live sites do not match, somehow. But the live site front end is showing correctly, isn’t it?
    Ah, when I typed that, I realized that it may be related to another question I answered about theme_supports. A few people were getting an error when the editor checks what the theme supports, so the support was not enabled. That matches what you see.

    I would try the Enable jQuery Migrate Helper plugin and see if it tells you there is a problem in some script, or fixes it.
    For information on finding errors with Javascript, which the editor is, read https://wordpress.org/support/article/using-your-browser-to-diagnose-javascript-errors/

    (I still don’t know why staging wouldn’t match live.)

    Thanks very much again Joy. As you say, the front end is fine.I’ll look in to what you say and go through my plugins one by one.

    For anyone who has same issue, I tracked my partic. problem down to the plugin ‘PublishPress’ blocks – I am awaiting feedback from developer.
