By using a theme.json file, in addition to the Global styles and settings capabilities, theme authors opt-in into the layout feature for blockBlockBlock is the abstract term used to describe units of markup that, composed together, form the content or layout of a webpage using the WordPress editor. The idea combines concepts of what in the past may have achieved with shortcodes, custom HTML, and embed discovery into a single consistent API and user experience. containers.
Historically, themes had the responsibility to provide CSSCSSCascading Style Sheets. styles in order to support aligning content (left, right). With the introduction of the block editor in WordPress 5.0, new alignments has been added to the mix (wide, full). In addition to that, the block editor allowed users to use container blocks (group, columns blocks) which potentially can change how their inner blocks are positioned and aligned. Taking all these variations into consideration has become a very difficult task for theme authors. To address these issues, WordPress 5.8 introduces the layout feature and config.
How do I migrate my theme
Themes that have a centered content area, need to define a layout setting in their `theme.json` file:
The block-editor will automatically read this config and provide the corresponding styles in the editor. It will allow all alignments to work properly without requiring the `add_theme_support( ‘align-wide’ )` call.
Themes are still required to provide the corresponding styles in the frontend of their sites, something like:
It’s not possible for WordPress to generate these styles automatically for all themes because the entry-content className in the example above is not mandatory and may not exist. In the future, with the introduction of the upcoming block themes, these styles won’t be needed anymore.
For themes with the layout config enabled, container blocks (like group blocks) do not automatically inherit the layout config. Meaning the blocks added inside the containers will by default take all the available space and not have any wide/full alignments options unless the user defines the wide and content sizes for that particular container block or “inherits” the config from the default layout.
This also means that themers can drop any alignment specific CSS that was added specifically to support nested blocks.
