    I just changed theme to Duster and I don’t have ( or can’t find) a Post Format box underneath the Publish box for Asides, Links, Gallery… Anybody know what may be occurring. Thanks so much.

    The blog I need help with is


    It is there on my test blog with duster. While in the post editor, go to the upper right and click “screen options” and make sure that “format” is checked.



    I checked “format” (by the way do you have to check this for every post?) and still no Post Format box. Hmmmmmm……..?



    @suitablefish Which site are you using Duster with? Here’s a screenshot with the location of the post format controls:

    And you only have to check the Screen Option once, it will appear for all posts after that.



    Stir (www.tostir….)

    My Post Editor doesn’t look like this screen shot. Do you see the post format box?

    Also, the format in screen options doesn’t stay set in future posts.

    Thank you so much for your response



    Hello there. Did you know that there is no “www” in any URL?

    Also the blog linked to your username does not seem to be the one in question as it is wearing the Structure theme.

    And this __ > Stir (www.tostir….) is not a complete URL ie. a clickable link

    Please, please post the link the whole link starting with http:// to the blog in question.



    oops, sorry.

    thanks for your patience. I love this theme, but having a bit of trouble getting it up for this new blog.


    @suitablefish, it could be a browser cache or cookie issue. Log out of wordpress, clear your browser cache and cookies, restart your browser and then try again.



    I cleared the browser cache and cookies and still the same issues.


    My last suggestion then is to try a different browser and see if the issue persists. If it does, then there might be something staff needs to look into.


    how to use the right and left side bar that the theme says is one of the features?



    Please do not post off-topic question into existing threads. Please search first and if you cannot find an answer then post a new thread using this link on the front of the forum. “add a new topic’



    I understand how to use R and L sidebars, R only available in Specialty? Template. The problem is two things: Format in the screen options window does not stay checked as ON.
    No Post Format Window appears in Post Editor for Asides, Gallergy, etc.

    Thanks for the link airodyssey, but it didn’t get at my problem in Duster. I still don’t have a post format box to make Asides….on any posts, and it’s strange that in screen options, Format doesn’t stay ‘checked’ post to post. Seems a mystery. Any more ideas out there?
