52 Free WordPress Themes with Post Formats


In Version 3.1 of WordPress, a new theme feature called “post formats” was added. Post formats allow you to change how a post is styled by choosing a pre-determined type such a quote post, a gallery post, an image post, a link post, an audio post, etc.

You choose the format you’d like by selecting a radio button located on the right side of the screen on the Post/Edit page. Here’s an example of post format types.

 

Although a built-in feature of WordPress, post formats need to be activated by the your theme, and the style for each format is also determined by your theme. Therefore, a “quote post” on one theme may look very different from a “quote post” on another theme.

Below we’ve collected 52 free WordPress themes that employ post formats. As mentioned, there are a number of different post types a theme might have. For the purposes of comparison, we have shown each theme below using a “quote post format” and a “gallery post format.”
