Getting to Know the Formatting Under the Settings Tab

The Formatting options are mostly options for items that will appear with your posts. The first option however is to select how many post will show on your blog before moving into the archive. You can also select to limit posts to days. The next option is to set how you want your date to appear by your post. This is displayed above your post. There isn't an option to omit the date under the formatting tab. Next is pretty self explainatory. You will also be prompted to select time and zone and language. If you are ok with the default option then you can leave it the way it is. The last option in the formatting tab is the Post Template. This is used to set up additional post operations for every post. The idea is to not have to change the post formatting on every post. The Post Template is geared for html so you will need some knowledge to set up a personalized post template.
