Visual Editor width is narrow; wrapping text

  • DagnyK


    The Visual Editor is using only about half the available width of the screen. The Text Editor is not affected. I think it started happening since a recent update. I’ve used the theme for almost three years and it used to be fine. What is happening looks like this:


    If I open an existing post to edit it, the text will fill the full width of the Visual Editor and then wrap to half the screen.

    About a year ago you addressed what sounded like this problem and the answer was to Disable Custom Editor Styles. I tried that. It did not change anything.

    I haven’t changed any settings in my blog pretty much since I first set it up over two years ago so this really has me stumped.

    I tried that. It did not change anything.

    Be sure to empty your browser and server caches.

    If nothing else, try disabling your plugins.



    I already did that.

    You should not copy over the theme’s entire style.css into your child theme stylesheet. You should only include those items that you need to change. This is probably not related to your problem above, but it could cause problems down the line and slow down performance of your site.

    I think it started happening since a recent update.

    Theme update, WordPress update, plugin update?



    If I knew exactly when it started happening, I would know what caused the problem, wouldn’t I?

    Do you have any actual suggestions?

    I realize you are frustrated by this, but there is no need to be rude. The time I spend trying to help you is time I’m not spending on my own projects.



    By all means you should devote your time to something more productive than tossing out random ideas.

    So is there someone else who thinks they might actually know what’s causing this problem? Something specific I could check? I’ve googled this and searched the WordPress forums and nothing has worked.

    I made a donation for the theme back when I first started using it and paid for the mobile version. I’d like to keep using it but this problem has made me not even want to blog anymore. If there’s no solution, I’ll have to change themes. It’s not a problem I’m willing to put up with. It’s too disruptive to my writing.

    Regardless, you did not pay for the right to be rude and condescending. I’ve never done this before, but I’m going to give you a 24 hour break from this forum to learn how to be polite in an online forum.
