#6376 closed defect (bug) (reported-upstream)

Theme preview is bugged for all themes in the directory

Reported by: superbthemescom's profile superbthemescom Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: high
Component: Theme Directory Keywords:


The preview is aligned right, and 20% of the content is missing in the view on all themes in the directory.

Here's how you reproduce it:

  1. On a website with WordPress installed, go to the themes tab and click "Add new": /wp-admin/theme-install.php?browse=popular
  2. Pick any theme and click "Preview".

This bug doesn't occur on when clicking the preview button, only on websites with WordPress installed.

Can't figure how to upload images, but the bug is easy to replicate anyways.

The bug is caused by following CSS:

#customize-container iframe, .theme-install-overlay iframe {
    width: 100vw;

Changing it to follow, fixes it:

#customize-container iframe, .theme-install-overlay iframe {
    width: 100%;
