    “Blog by email” seems to have a big issue (at least with Theme Skeptical). If you send an email to the blog it is using the Post Format “Image” and not standard.

    Your default post format is probably set to ‘Image’. Go to this page and select a different Default Post Format from the dropdown menu: https://BLOGNAME.wordpress.com/wp-admin/options-writing.php

    Replace ‘BLOGNAME’ with your blog name.

    Nope. This is correct on the default.

    (First report here: http://de.forums.wordpress.com/topic/artikelformatvorlage)

    Any other ideas?

    I can’t seem to reproduce their problem. As far as I can see they don’t have any posts with the ‘Image’ post format. Could you ask them to test once more and leave the post as it is?

    I can’t reproduce the problem, too. I have asked the user to test again and will report here the result. Thanks for testing! :)

    Okay, now I can reproduce the problem: If you just send an image attached to the email and no text, the post format is changed to “image”. That is the problem (or the feature :)

    As I can’t change the post format with any shortcode, how do I prevent this “feature”?

    Seems to be intentional:

    Please add me to the people who don’t like this “feature”. You should’nt decide the post format for me.
