Post types

Almanac has eight post types:

Most of these types display the same with the exception of quotes; the content of the post is the quote and the title is the “author”.

Automatic Media Embeds

The post editor supports HTML so any media can be embedded in a post. This section refers only to automatically embedding specific services.

Although automatic media embeds are designed for video and music posts, any post type can automatically embed media by adding a link to a post. The following services are supported:

SCREENSHOT OF SPOTIFY POST

Spoilers

If a post contains spoilers there are two options to obscure the post:

Visitors can then click on the spoiler to reveal the contents.

Tags

Tags can be added in the post editor and all posts for a specific tag can be viewed at yourdomain.com/?tags[]=TAGNAME

Rewatches

Almanac will match up previous posts where the same thing has been watched and display this on the site. When visiting a permalink for a post, any other posts related to the same thing will be shown. Posts have a “repost” button so you can easily repost the same thing, with new content, again.
