Posts Setup

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

Post Options

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

Splitting the content / displaying read more link

This is not a specific feature, actually, it is very WordPress common but we have found that many users are not familiar with it so here is a quick explanation.

Usually, most of the users do not want to display entire posts on archive templates but only a few starting lines of the content followed by “read more” link. This can be achieved with the “More” block properly placed inside your post content, as shown in the image below.

Content VS Excerpt

Please note that splitting the content manually with more tag will work on Layout A only. On other Layouts (B, C and D) content will be limited automatically depending on the number of characters you have specified for each layout in the Theme Options -> Main Layouts section.

Post Sidebar

Just as for each page, you can set specific sidebar for each post as well.

Post Layout/Style

Posts have two single layouts/styles: Classic style (as default) or Featured style (with a stylish featured image at the top and post title over the image).

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.

Audio Post

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

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

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

Video Post

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

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.

Note:
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
