    1. 1. POST FORMATS <3Anthony Cole | @anthonycole
    2. 2. BUT FIRST....• The first WordPress hacknight evar• May 14th, from 6PM onwards• Someform of Pizza, Energy Drinks, and WordPress Cupcakes provided• Look at the wpmelbourne blog for more info• <3
    3. 3. SO WTF ARE POST FORMATS?• Post Formats are a way of distinguishing different types of content when you write a post!• Think of it as something like Tumblr + WordPress themes• Supports: asides, gallery, link, image, quote, status, video, audio, chat• Multiple use cases there
    4. 4. MY HEAD HURTS• Mine does too, so let’s make this simple• Imagine I’m going to a meeting, like the one I had this morning • My post format is the fact that I’m going into a meeting, therefore I’m going to wear this stupid tie.
    5. 5. HOW CAN I USE THEM?• Your theme has to support them (see later) •A ton of premium theme companies are starting to use them in tumblr themes• Duster by Automattic is the best example
    6. 6. BUT WHY NOT JUST USE TUMBLR? ...
    7. 7. EXAMPLE
    8. 8. USE CASES• I’m using Duster• It’s awesome!• Let’s have a look
    9. 9. DEVELOPERS!
    10. 10. DEVELOPERS DEVELOPERS DEVELOPERS!• Developers are “awesome” and usually have several different ways of doing things• This makes things tricky to standardise on the platform• This is the one case where I can’t say “there’s not a plugin for that” • Imagine what would happen if people could add different formats
    11. 11. POST FORMATS VS. POST TYPES• We know that Post Formats are the way posts are presented• Post Types are the actual posts• Think of the post type as me (A “Person”), and the post format like what I’m wearing
