sample post using “Link” format

The Link format of posting is another compact flavor of posting, very similar to the Aside format, except that it displays the heading “LINK” instead of “ASIDE” in the main blog page or archive page in which the entry is listed.

What http://codex.wordpress.org/Post_Formats says about this format:

link - A link to another site. Themes may wish to use the first <a href=””> tag in the post content as the external link for that post. An alternative approach could be if the post consists only of a URL, then that will be the URL and the title (post_title) will be the name attached to the anchor for it.

  1. The preceding post, originally created under the Twenty Eleven theme, is now being displayed under the Twenty Fourteen theme. Here is a summary of changes due to updating to the newer theme:

    • As with Standard and Aside format posts, the category is now displayed above the text, in all caps, both in the blog page and the post page.
    • The blog entry for a Link post now displays date and comment bubble above the text, below the category heading.
    • A graphical Link indicator is now included to the left of the posting date, and this links to a page of all Link type postings. (This indicator also now appears in the corresponding post page.)
    • The post title is no longer displayed in the posting page, as it was previously.
    • Tags assigned to an Link type post are now displayed in the main blog, below the post text (where they previously had been omitted).
