I have discussed this kind of topic here, but I did realize, that this way did not work for me.
I actually use the marketer site theme. But I want a Post View like this: https://share-your-photo.com/13e8d11e5d
Images and Tables should be more wide as the text.
How can I do this?
Or have some upcoming Blog Layouts this feature? If so, I would wait for that.February 7, 2021 at 11:55 am #1649473LeoStaffCustomer Support
You can try to build it using the container blocks from GenerateBlocks which allows you to set different width for each container:

Hmm, I don´t understand your answer. What about GPP? What do I have to do there?
And what about my last question?February 7, 2021 at 12:02 pm #1649482LeoStaffCustomer Support
Nothing you need to do in GPP.
You can set the content container layout to full so that GB containers have complete control.

No that’s not something we would add to GP.February 7, 2021 at 12:26 pm #1649506Sonja
But in GPP the text is as wide as the container. How can Images then be wider than a container?February 7, 2021 at 12:46 pm #1649525LeoStaffCustomer SupportFebruary 7, 2021 at 1:09 pm #1649549Sonja
Yes I have installed and tried it. But As I mentioned above, the text is as wide as the container. How can Images then be wider than a container?February 7, 2021 at 2:28 pm #1649584LeoStaffCustomer Support
Can you add 4 different container blocks and set each container width to be different?
If that still doesn’t help, can you link me to the page so I can see what you currently have?February 8, 2021 at 2:01 am #1649908Sonja
Look, I don´t want to put all my text on every post and page in such a GB Container. I want to write normally in the normal Gutenberg Editor.
But now and then, I want to insert a Table or an Image, which is wider then the text, like in the image i send.
I have seen this on many WordPress Websites and Themes. And they don´t use GB Plugin.February 8, 2021 at 4:14 am #1650053DavidStaffCustomer Support
place the Content that you want wider than the other text inside a GB Container Block or a core Group Block. With the block selected, in the Block Toolbar select the Wide Width. This will extend the block to the site containers edges.
You can also do this with any block without the container, for example an Image Block.February 8, 2021 at 5:58 am #1650209Sonja
can you explain what the site container is? Because in the container documentation i can not find a site container.
Is this the container, where the text sits in?February 8, 2021 at 7:01 am #1650445DavidStaffCustomer Support
the site-container is the HTML element that contains your post content. You don’t need to add it or do anything, the theme outputs this.
When you add padding to the Customizer > Layout > Container, the padding gets added to the inside of this element.
The Wide Width option in the block editor simply excludes the padding from the width of the block.February 8, 2021 at 7:12 am #1650462Sonja
Is this including sidebar, or only the content? I guess this will only works without sidebar.
With the padding, I can set the width of the content (text, etc.)?
So, the wider elements use the space from the padding from the container?
So I have to smaller the text, with padding, to have some space for wider elements?February 8, 2021 at 7:56 am #1650530DavidStaffCustomer Support
Yes, the effect is best displayed on a Post without Sidebars.
Yes, the padding will affect the width of the content.
For example if my Container Width ( no sidebar ) is set to 800px. And i have 40px left and right container padding. Then the post content will be 720px wide. And the Wide Width element will be 800px wide.February 9, 2021 at 12:44 am #1651280Sonja
Okay, thanks, slowly it is getting clear.
Are there recommended values for container width and padding?
And is it possible, to have a homepage with sidebar, but posts with a layout we are here discussing?
