Suggestion for Post Formats

    Currently for the image post format it is set

    .format-image .wp-caption > a,
    .format-image .entry-content > a,
    .format-video .entry-content > a{
    display: block;
    line-height: 0;
    }

    My suggestion is to change it to

    .format-image .wp-caption > a,
    .format-image .entry-content > a,
    .format-video .entry-content > a{
    display: inline;
    line-height: 1;
    }

    This small change will make it so that when a link is added to this format it is not crunched-up and it will not automatically force the design on the creator.

    Just my input, it is not a needed change thanks to the use of child themes, however I feel that it would allow many creators to make a post the way they want to

    Thank you,

    Well, the point behind the special post formats is to emphasize the image, video, etc., without text. But like you said, now anybody who wants to change it can. Thanks!

    I totally understand that it is meant to emphasize the image or video, however if you are using the video format and you are a YouTuber; you say to your watcher “Links are below,” if there are no links on your website it makes it so that your video does not work on your own site!

    Still if the creator understand HTML and CSS they can make the edits like I have:

    Still I think it would be more user-friendly

    That is very true. I don’t have an issue with that (I do podcasts, rather than videos, so I don’t use a special post format) so I am wondering if you just add a video without any text (with the changes to the CSS you’ve made above) what the final appearance will be. Pretty much the same as if you had no additional text and made no changes to the CSS, is that right?

    Yes when just a video is posted nothing is visually different than the default Graphene look

    That’s cool. In that case, maybe your CSS should become the default for the theme. Opinions?

    I will be adding my full code soon

    Adding it where? Do you mean you will be updating the appearance of your blog?
