Ellen theme supports Gallery, Video, Audio post format aside from the Standard post format.


By default if you use standard format, each post will display a featured image before the main content. If you choose one of these formats ( gallery/video/audio ) for your post, it will display your first image gallery or first embeded video/audio instead of a featured image. A small icon will also appear in the post list thumbnail to distinguish them from the standard posts.
