Add custom post format support

  1. Mihail Semjonov

    Hello there.

    Originaly i was asking is there a chance to create custom post format:

    So the idea is to make something similar to custom post type creation only for post formats.

    Imagine that you'v created custom post format called "products", it has few fields (like in 3.6 beta the audio, video atc.) that you can define.
    Product image, product price, some features of product atc.
    And in theme you create content-product.php..
    And your post showing on your blog disained as you wish: image, availability, price atc..
    There would be no need on creating custom post types. Making custom post fields to theme. It would save your time ))

    Also think about creating separate support formats for custom post types. Like for blog i want that there would be standard, chat and link but in custom post type "News" i want to have standard, video, music..

    PS: forgive me for my english, It's not my native >)
    PSS: feel free to change the category, becouse i didn't know where to post this.. but that seemed more suitible)

    This would defeat the purpose of post formats I think. For the products example you provided, CPTs should be used.

    You can use add_post_type_support function (http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/add_post_type_support) to make a CPT support Post Formats.

    There's no plan to allow people to add Post Formats.

    That's too bad. I think the use case that Mihail presented makes a lot of sense and would be very useful.
