Blog post formats

WordPress supports various post formats (more info here). So far, I have used only standard-format and status-format.

  • Status is used for short status updates, similar to Twitter updates. That’s how I use status-format. And because my blog entries are distributed to Twitter, I can use Twitter-specific hashtags in the post. Status-posts don’t show title when viewing them in WordPress but Twitter and others show title. If I haven’t specified title, Facebook shows “no title” and Twitter shows nothing but a colon (like this tweet).
  • Standard is standard.

There are other post formats that I haven’t yet used like aside (similar to Facebook note update), link, quote and image.
