Display Post Format in Your Theme

Snippets by IsItWP

Are you looking for a way to display post format of your post? While there’s probably a plugin for this, we have created a quick code snippet that you can use to display post format or ‘standard’ if there’s no post format in WordPress.


All you have to do is add this code to your theme’s post.php file:

if ( get_post_format() ) {
    echo get_post_format_string( get_post_format() );
} else {
    echo 'Standard';

Note: If this is your first time adding code snippets in WordPress, then please refer to our guide on how to properly copy / paste code snippets in WordPress, so you don’t accidentally break your site.
