Post Formats

Post Formats were introduced in WordPress 3.1; they're about  to get huge in WordPress 3.6 (with their own admin UI and some standards for implementation). Has anyone already presented on the topic? Might people be interested in this?

    Russel did a great job demonstrating WordPress post format options. The venue was excellent. Thanks all.

    Thank you for the presentation, Russell.

    FWIW: As interested as I was and am in the topic, and as much as I enjoyed chatting with those I chatted with, I might have chosen to stay home (it's a 2hr+ round trip for me) if I knew there were going to be only 10 of us at this networking event for which at least 45 group members RSVPed "Yes".

    Parking & Directions: From I-75/85 Northbound.Exit #248-B Go left at the first traffic light (Edgewood Avenue). Go Approximately 4 blocks until you cross Courtland Street. At the next traffic light go right onto Peachtree Center Avenue and take the first entrance on your right (Lynch's Ally). The entrance to the parking garage will be past the median on the left. The Loudermilk Center is adjacent to the parking garage.

    I have a repair guy coming to the house to finally complete a project.

    Sorry I'm missing this, behind on a couple of projects.

    I like this topic and have some interest. But, the location makes the venture logistically difficult for us, since we don't work downtown. So, I'll take a pass until a topic that is irresistible comes up. Then, it might be worth paying for parking for a 2 hour meeting.

    Great idea to have the Happiness Bar {wp_projects_dujour} right before the Post Formats meeting at the same venue. Thks!

    Awesome. This is one of the things I've always wanted to learn in WordPress.

    March 19, 2014

  • Russell F.

    Oh shoot, I just realized that I have tickets to the braves game that night - so I won't make it.

    Looking forward to catching this event and meeting more folks.

    I am the first time to learn WordPress. I am looking forward to see you guy.

    Okay if Post Formats is the topic I'll play. Unless someone else was preparing to do the presentation. Seems like the feature has had enough time to soak in - I imagine that the 3.9 updates will be in place by then and we can have a good conversation about this.

    3.8.1 is out. Is this topic still in the works?

    February 25, 2014

  • Chris M.

    Will this Meetup also delve into custom post types?

    The new "Formats UI" that was proposed in early 3.6 dev releases has died. That dosen't mean that formats have gone away, just that they won't be getting the new look & feel or placement in the post edit screen. Matt addressed this in his state of the word and suggested new direction for this feature in upcoming versions.

  • Judi K.

    Lets wait a bit and do this up right when the new UI is released and talk about the what why and the how.

    1 · July 9, 2013

  • Russell F.

    Given the recent developments regarding formats for 3.? perhaps this would be good for a couple of months out.

    May 31, 2013

    • Jeff C.

      Maybe so. But let's keep in mind that Post Formats have been in WordPress since Feb 2011. WordPress 3.6 will have enhanced support for Post Formats, even though the new UI for them has been removed/deferred. I've been surprised to learn (e.g., from LinkedIn WP discussion groups) that relatively few people (including designers/developers) know much at all about Post Formats. My presentation could focus more on WHAT and WHY than how. What do others think? Should it be postponed?

      June 3, 2013

    • Jeff C.

      I do think we should postpone the presentation on Post Formats.

      June 7, 2013

  • Judi K.

    Want to do a presentation about them?

    May 1, 2013

    • Jeff C.

      I might. I'd like to find out (a) if there's interest in the topic and (b) whether someone more knowlegdeable about it than I would want to present.

      Have you delved into them much/at all?
