WP_Customize_Widgets::is_wide_widget( string $widget_id ): bool

Determines whether the widget is considered “wide”.


Core widgets which may have controls wider than 250, but can still be shown in the narrow Customizer panel. The RSS and Text widgets in Core, for example, have widths of 400 and yet they still render fine in the Customizer panel.

This method will return all Core widgets as being not wide, but this can be overridden with the ‘is_wide_widget_in_customizer’ filter.
