Applying a Post Format

96

If your theme supports post formats, you’ll see a Format box in the Add New Post and Edit Post pages. There, you’ll find a list of all the formats you can use with the theme. You can pick any of them for a post, but if you don’t make a choice, your post sticks with Standard.

Table lists all the post formats that WordPress allows. Themes can pick and choose which of them they allow.

POST      FORMAT TYPE OF CONTENT
Standard Standard, ordinary posts. Every post starts out using the Standard format.
Aside A short snippet of text that doesn’t add up to a full post. Casual bloggers can use the Aside format to blurt out a quick thought, in much the same way that you might use a text message or a tweet on Twitter. Most themes don’t display a title for asides.
Status A short update about what you’re doing right now (“Chillin’ with my Missin’ Manual, about to build a brilliant WordPress site”). Similar to the status update feature on virtually every social media site. Most themes don’t display a title for status updates.
Link A link to another website, with little or no extra text. Most themes don’t display a title for links.
Quote A short snippet of text that quotes some words of wisdom you want to share. Most themes don’t display a title for quotes.
Image A post that contains a picture you uploaded.
Gallery A post that contains a picture gallery.
Audio A post that contains an audio recording.
Video A post that contains a video file.
Chat A snippet of a memorable conversation, offline or online. Usually looks like this: Joe: dude, why u ignorin me? Ben: im learnin some wordpress, bro
