Glaciers (Pro) includes post formats that give you the option to set custom introductions. Normally with WordPress, you can create a category description, but for other archives, you can’t. This theme includes the following formats that you can use as specialized categories:

  • Standard – This is the default format in WordPress
  • Image – Use this if you want to focus on photos in your posts
  • Gallery – Use this one for posts that include a gallery
  • Video – If your posts include videos
  • Audio – Things like podcasts or other audio-based media
  • Status – Use this as a short post format to give updates on things

Post meta information will display a linked post format label. When you click on this link, it takes you to a category-like layout where the intro is displayed.

For example, if we are using the Image post format, you can see the link in the meta info like this:

After clicking on the linked post format, you will be taken to the post format category and see how the intro is displayed. Much like a blog category is:

By default, WordPress only lets you create a category description, but none for post formats. In Amble, we can do that.
