Twenty Nineteen: Editor style interferes with navigation menu.

Reported by: Joen Owned by: ianbelanger
Milestone: 5.5 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: Bundled Theme Keywords: good-first-bug has-patch

This issue is only present in the latest master version of the Gutenberg plugin.

The following rule is present in the TwentyNineteen editor style:

.wp-block .wp-block {
	width: 100%;

This rule was created, if I recall correctly, to adjust the dimensions of nested blocks, and override another rule that set the width of top level blocks to a complex calc rule.

As of https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/pull/20729, however, this rule now unintentionally targets navigation menu items, which should show up horizontally in a flow. Specifically, the width of the .wp-block-navigation-link must be auto, or it won't work.

Suggest refactoring the rule above to only target top level blocks in different manner, or use the same rule but apply width: initial; instead, if possible.

  • Version trunk deleted

Thanks for reporting this @Joen. Do you know when this is planning to be merged into core? Just so we can be ready for it when the time comes.

The change is likely to land in the plugin for next weeks release. But it is extremely unlikely to be an issue in core until version 5.5.

Great! Thanks for the quick response. I'll mark it for 5.5.

Thanks, @Joen. 49613.diff changes that rule to initial instead of 100%, and it appears to work fine. Tested with a bunch of Group, Cover, and Columns blocks, and haven't noticed any issues.

That patch looks beautiful to me Kjell, thank you! I also verified that the purpose it initially served — to style only top level blocks but not sublevel blocks — works, insofar as nested blocks still look right. Ship it!
