Beginning with WordPress Version 3.1, a new feature has been added to the Edit Post screen – Format. Weaver supports several additional Post Formats over the Standard one. You may find the Post Formats useful. Posts with a Format specified will display a “pre-title” showing the Format. This helps these posts stand out. The descriptions for each Post Format describe how the post will be displayed from the blog pages. Archive pages display the post as an excerpt, but with the Format type’s titles. These Post Formats were modeled after Twenty Eleven.
The Aside Format is intended to display a short note from the author. This Format does not display the post title or category info, and puts the date and author at the bottom.
If you check this for a post, Weaver will display this as a Gallery. When displayed on the blog page, a Gallery Format Post will display as a special excerpt that shows one thumbnail from all the images included from the Media Library. If the user clicks on the image, they will be taken to the full post with all the images.
The Link Format is intended to display links. It will be displayed like the Aside, but with Link as the title.
The Quote Format is intended for quotations. (For the language sticklers, this should be called Quotation, but Quote is the name used.). It works like any other post, but with a “Quote” pre-title.
The Status Format is intended for a short status update from the author. It displays like an Aside, but also add the Author’s avatar to the post.
