Hi, fairly new to WordPress, and love this theme. I wonder if you can tell me about asides. My thought is that if a create an aside it should not appear on the main blog, but somehwere else(Sidebar widget perhaps)
the only thing I can find on the WordPress site says that themes have to be able to use the asides system. So is this system Asides compatable? If yes, how do I use them>
Yes i think so. The problem is I do not know what asides are supposed to do. My wish would be that when I create a new post, it is standard and appears on the main blog page. Then if when I create a new post, I tick the “asides” type it does not then appear on the main page, just appears in a sidebar widget
It is a “type” of post, and it is a supported functionality of our themes but you are not using it correctly. It is meant to define the kind of post as an “aside” rather than a primary post. I know it is rather confusing, and unfortunately that’s WordPress’s fault really.
If using Post Formats and Asides is doing things you don’t want to happen I suggest not using them.
