How to Make Twenty Nineteen’s Content Full-Width

If you’ve updated to WordPress 5.0, then you probably noticed the new Twenty Nineteen theme. It very simple, with a huge emphasis on the content and clean typography.

It’s great. However, the content area is really made for articles and blogging.

For wide screens, the content is nudged to the a little bit to the side. This works well for articles, but for creating pages especially with the influx of Gutenberg blocks, the content area should evenly fill the width of the screen.

.entry .entry-summary > * {
max-width: none;

max-width: none;
