Writing Settings

Formatting You can use these checkboxes to control some of your blog's formatting.

  • Convert emoticons such as :-) and :-P to graphics on display - Checking this tells WordPress to convert all of the emoticons in your posts into graphical smilies.
  • Event Smart should correct invalidly nested XHTML automatically - Checking this helps make sure that what you write in your posts is valid XHTML code. You should probably check this box since invalid code sometimes causes problems with web browsers.

Default Post Category The Category you select from this drop-down is called the default post Category. The default post Category is Category assigned to a post if you fail to assign any other Categories with writing your posts. If you delete a Category, the posts in that Category will be assigned the default post Category. If you have several Categories, but use one of those Categories more frequently, select that Category here to make your life a little easier. Default Post Format The Post Format you select from this drop-down is called the default Post Format. Post Formats are used by themes to create different styling for different types of posts. This settings is only visible if the current activated theme supports Post Formats. The WordPress Twenty Fifteen theme is an example of a theme that supports various Post Formats including Standard (no special format), Aside, and Gallery.
