What's the purpose of Post Format? (4 posts)

    Hello,

    When posting there's a box entitled 'Format'--it offers options like Standard, Aside, Image, Link, etc. Where can I get information on what this does?

    Thanks,
    Rusty

    These are WordPress Post Formats and the way that they are handled varies from theme to theme. What theme are you using? Where did you download it from?

    esmi,

    Thank you for replying!

    I'm using the Boot Store theme and I just found it looking though the New Theme search although it seems to have ties to Cart Press. Seeing how this is tied to the theme I should probably post this under that theme, yes?

    Thanks,
    Rusty

    Yes - that would your your best approach. Every theme that supports post formats could style style them quite differently. Some could even use specific formats as part of their extended functionality - eg all image format posts get added to a front page slider etc.
