    How to make the default post type as “Blog Post” and get rid of the “Status Update/Quote/Link” options? Please say there is a way.

    Are you referring to post formats? The default should be Standard – which is a normal blog post.

    Yes, post formats. But from the front end (not regular posting in the admin). There are four choices: Status/Blog/Quote/Link (and the default choice is “Status Update”).

    I want to get rid of Status/Quote/Link options and have it as Blog Post at all times.

    It seems there should be an option in the theme options with four check boxes allowing people to select which post formats they want available. Those buttons are unnecessary for basic posting (such as was available in older versions of this theme).

    @esmi: this is a P2 Theme-specific question.

    @neononcon: in the future, be sure to post Theme-specific questions through the Theme’s Extend listing page, which for P2 is here.

    @chip: then tell wordpress to create a forum specifically for the P2 theme. So far the only thing that distinguishes P2 specific questions is using the tag P2. And BTW, this was originally posted here: http://wordpress.org/tags/p2?forum_id=5

    @chip: Whoops! I missed the tag reference. My bad. 🙂

    @neononcon: Why? As I understand it, this approach is being extended to all Repository hosted themes. It brings theme support in line with Plugin support and, hopefully, will stop people from making the mistake that I did.

    Clearly nothing is getting resolved in these threads because mods are too busy moving posts around instead of answering questions. If you guys want us to post P2 questions in a P2 only forum, then create one for us to do so. Otherwise, can we please start to get some answers on this theme that Automattic is evidently so proud of?

    This is the correct forum, but it is not the best method of posting your support topic. By posting your topic through your Theme’s Extend listing page, your topic subject is automatically appended with your Theme Name, and the topic automatically tagged with your Theme Name. Thus, your topic is added to your Theme’s specific support forum, and people who offer help will have a better idea of how to help you.

    See this sticky topic, that explains what I’m talking about.

    There already IS a P2-specific support forum. I pointed it out to you.

    Entitlement mentality doesn’t really go over very well here. We’re all volunteers.

    We’re not Automattic employees. We can do nothing to add or change Theme options in P2 or any other Theme. I’m sorry you didn’t like my suggestion, but it was intended to help ensure that your query would be seen by people who can help you.

    Chip, please stop filling up this thread with useless nonsense. You made your point, now please be quiet so myself and others can hopefully get an answer to this question.

    And as much as Matt and the Automattic team touts P2, it would be nice to see some support for problems users are experiencing. Problems that make portions of the theme almost unusable.

    Stop trolling this thread. Thanks.

    You really don’t get it, do you?

    Anyone who might conceivably be able to answer your question is subscribed to the RSS feed for the P2-specific forum. My suggestion was intended to ensure that such people read your post.

    Don’t worry, though. There will be no need for me to continue further in this thread. You’re apparently too blinded by your condescension to understand.

    Do you want the last word, Chip? lol ok go ahead. Have the last word.

    Thanks for all the help big guy!

    Even forum volunteers are entitled to some basic respect.
