Last Updated on December 19, 2019 by BrodNeil

Note: aside, and gallery are not the only available post formats. The available list of post formats are:

aside – Typically styled without a title. Similar to a Facebook status update.

chat – A chat transcript.

gallery – A gallery of images.

link – A link to another site.

image – A single image.

quote – A quotation.

status – A short status update, usually limited to 140 characters. Similar to a Twitter status update.

video – A single video.

For the full list of post formats, refer to WordPress Codex  .

Once you have added this code, you will see a new field in your post write panel in the right hand column where you see publish.
