Wide and Full width blocks
If you’re not familiar, since WordPress 5.0 with the addition of the new block editor, certain blocks now have the option to be stretched out wide and full width of your content area. These features are optional in each theme and have to be added in by the theme developer.
Each width is best handled depending on the theme. For example, with Melody, since the post pages have the option of adding a sidebar, both wide and full blocks will look the same. Without a sidebar, the blocks take on the full effect because of the added space.
