Writing Post Format
After you’ve done all required actions when installing Assez theme. Now you’re ready to write your blog posts.
There are 7 Post Formats that supported to use with Assez theme.
To select what post format you like, you just need to look up to Format box that positioned right below Publish box.
However, we recommend you to upload featured image for each post. So that the posts have thumbnails that will show great in several widgets. Such as recent posts, post slideer, etc.
Assez allows you to use any image size, but we recomended to use image with minimum resolution is 1000x 550 pixels.
Now. Let’s learn how to write the format types.
To create image post format, you just need to create post like standard post and you have to upload the featured image, and this is mandatory (of course, we’re going to publish image format right?). The result on the front-end will make the uploaded featured image available to zoom-in. And don’t forget to select “Image” on the Format Options box.
Video and Audio
Create a post just like the standard post, choose “Video” on the Format Options box. To add video content, for example, if you want to show vimeo videos, you just need to put the Vimeo link. WordPress oEmbed system will automatically render the video player. It’s the same way to put the youtube videos and soundcloud audio, even you can embed self-hosted video and audio too, Just paste the file url to the text editor.
To make quote post format, just pick “Quote” on format option while you’re creating a new post.
To write the quote post properly, please use this code snippet (you need to switch the WordPress text editor type tab to “Text”):
<blockquote> <p style="text-align: center;">I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><cite>Maya Angelou</cite></p> </blockquote>
Please make sure that you’ve already installed Jetpack and its Tiled Galleries module.
If you want to create Tiled Gallery, just click Add Media button right at the left top of WordPress Editor. Pick the images that you want to display on your post, and then click Create Gallery.
You can see that in Gallery Settings, there are several options for gallery settings. Please select “Link To:” as Media File. So Assez theme could fire jQuery lightbox to enlarge the image on the fly.
for “Type ” settings, the recommended choice is Tiled Mosaic, that’s what Assez great to render with.
