An introduction to the Quote Post Format

This theme includes a few Post Formats for your blog. This tutorial will give you an introduction to the “Quote Post Format” and how it works for the Senses theme. There are many styles for post formats with different themes — basically no real standard, so many theme authors create their own styles and methods. For Senses, I do mine in a unique way that capitalizes on the “Featured Image” for your posts in addition to the default colour background that is normally displayed.

Default Quote Post Format:
