Single Posts Setup

Herald provides all common WordPress post features and functionality, as well as some more cool features and customization which are described below.

First, go to Theme Options -> Single section to manage default settings for your single posts.


Also, you can edit most of the options for each particular post separately.

Post Layout

You can choose from 9 layouts for a single post appearance.


Post Sidebar

You can set a specific sidebar for each post.


You can find more information about sidebars in the Sidebars sections of this documentation.

Infinite scroll loading

Feature added in version 1.6 gives the ability to enable the so-called infinite scroll (infinite loading) behavior for single posts. This means that when you scroll to the end of a post, the next post will be loaded automatically on the same page. You can easily enable it via Theme Options -> Single Post -> Extras.

Post Formats

This theme also provides support for several built-in post formats, introduced since WordPress version 3.1.

All the posts by default have “Standard” format and it will probably be enough to run a classic WordPress blog for most of the users because it actually supports all the WordPress common features. For something more specific, there are a couple of variations.

The best way to learn how to use post formats with this theme is by checking posts in our demo content, but here is a quick guide for each one.

Video Post

The video post usually has a video block at the beginning of your content. You can add some more content bellow the video, of course.

Gallery Post

The gallery post usually has a gallery block at the beginning of your content. You can add some more content bellow created gallery.

Image Post

The image post consists of the featured image only. You can use the content editor to add more content if you want.

Audio Post

The audio post usually has an audio block at the beginning of your content.

Paginated/Multi-Page Post

This is also a cool WordPress feature which Herald theme supports. You can split your post content into multiple pages with the

tag and use it as so-called “paginated” post with stylish previous/next pagination.

Standard Post – wrapping up

All these format features previously described are of course supported in standard post format as well. So if you want to show a mixture of galleries, videos, audios, content, etc… in one single post, you will probably want to use standard post format.

This theme is WordPress 5.0 optimized, which means that it uses blocks for content creation. If you want to learn more about WordPress blocks and their features, we suggest you visit this great user guide for using blocks
