Filter Post Formats


I wanted to move my image post formats away from my home page and to another section of my website, so I created this plugin.
This plugin will filter out post formats on your home page, but leave the archive pages and search results alone. This plugin will
allow the management of existing post formats even if the current theme does not offer post format support.

Additionally, I created a drop-down within the edit-posts section of the administrator page to enable the user to filter
the post by post format.


  1. Upload the filter-post-formats folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  3. Update the Filter Post Format options within the Settings -> Reading section.

Removed restrictions for post format support within the current theme. A blog owner may have existing post formats and switched to a theme without post format support.
By removing the restrictions, existing post formats can still be managed with this plugin.

Re-worked code to use more WordPress API functions. Added new filters for future developer use.


Corrected plugin repository file folder issue.


Fixed but where post format drop-down was appearing within the edit.php admin backend for Pages.
