Extra Options

Extra Supports All The Major Post Formats

When you write a blog post, you can apply one of 7 different post formats to the post: Standard, Video, Audio, Quote, Gallery, Link, and Map. Each of these formats structures your post differently, putting more focus on the type of content that the format represents.

When you write a blog post, you will notice a box to the right of your text editor labeled “Format.” Within this box are the 6 format options. Choosing “Standard” will result in a normally-formatted blog post, while each of the other options has a unique design associated with their format type.
