A post type is a way of differentiating one kind of blog post from another with different layout styles. Post types are set by the theme you’re using.

Some examples of different post types within the Divi theme are:

  • Standard (a regular blog post)
  • Video
  • Audio
  • Quote
  • Gallery
  • Link

The Divi theme which we use for many of our sites has all these different post types allowing you to show your blog posts in ways that are eye catching and appropriate for the content.

To set a post type whilst editing a post, simply select it from the Format panel on the right side of the screen. You won’t see a lot change when you select this, but you will when you preview your post in your website’s blog.
