The Ability to Align oEmbedded Content

Unlike images, you can't easily align oEmbeded content in WordPress. When clicking the Pencil icon to edit the content, there's no option to change its alignment.

While there is a plugin that adds oEmbed styling https://wordpress.org/plugins/oembed-styling/, I think it's something that should be a core behavior. At the very least, core should provide a set of oEmbed CSS Classes that themes can adopt to allow users to control the alignment within the post editor.

One example is Slideshare. When I copy and paste a Slideshare link into the Visual editor, it aligns it to the left. When I click on the Pencil icon to edit the content, the only things I can manipulate is the URL and Maximum width/Maximum Height.


I searched the WordPress.org support forums to see how popular of a request this is and most of the responses are from 5 years ago before oEmbed was added to WordPress. I also searched Trac to see if a ticket requesting this had already been filed and came up empty.

It would be nice to have the standard as close as possible image controls added for embeds.
So that in addition to aligning one could also resize.

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 5.0
  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

This is no longer relevant after the merge of the block editor, where it should be fixed. Let's preserve the way it's currently built for the classic editor.
