Issues with post format types (2 posts)

    Let me first say that this is a fantastic theme and my wife loves it. I do have one glitch I could use some help with. If she chooses to do a post under another format other than standard, the title doesn't show up. I can see where that can be an ok thing for some post types, but for others, she would like to have the title show in the post, along with the author. Any ideas? Was it intentional? I would call my skills remedial at best, so I didn't want to go thrashing around in code before I asked you. Thank you so much for your incredible works!

    Some post formats don't display the title, as that's the nature of that particular format--for example, Asides, Quotes, Status, and Links won't display the post title or entry meta in this theme, since they're meant to be quick, simple posts with very little extra info. You can read more about using post formats and the general behavior for each type in WordPress here.

    You can change any of this in a child theme. For example, to display the post title when using the Aside format, you'd add the following to your child theme's style.css

    .post.format-aside .entry-title {
      display: block;

    This will override the parent theme's style for Aside entry titles, which is display: none. I recommend using an add-on like Firebug to do this kind of CSS work.

    Hope this helps!
