Support » Plugin: Gutenberg » Where’s ‘the wide button’

  • Resolved captainrogers


    I began reading through the Gutenberg demo and came to the image with the words “Give it a try. Press the “wide” button on the image toolbar.” beneath it. What or where is “the wide button”?

    The ‘wide’ option comes when a theme supports that.

    You can read more about that here:

    So whomever wrote the demo didn’t think that was worth mentioning? I would have thought that the Twenty Seventeen theme, being one of the defaults supplied with WordPress, would support it.

    Well, same issue here. I would say that this has to be fixed somehow. I’m also on Twenty Seventeen theme and I suppose that demo will work with Gutenberg seamlessly. My WordPress installation is brand-new from docker repo. Missing something on demo page feels like a half-product. Maybe there is something I did wrong that the demo is corrupted. Please let me know. Thanks. Gutenberg is a great plugin, anyway. Love to work with it. Dropping my Microsoft OneNote App. 😉 Nice job!

    I’m happy that you guys are working on Gutenberg.
    Concerning the wide option, I added the following code to the theme’s functions.php and now the “wide” button appears when selecting an image in the editor:

    function reyl_lite_setup_theme_supported_features() {
        add_theme_support( 'editor-color-palette',
        add_theme_support( 'align-wide' );
    add_action( 'after_setup_theme', 'reyl_lite_setup_theme_supported_features' );

    Is this correct? Because the image isn’t wide in the published page.

    Yes, it works now. Thanks for your advice.
