Post Titles Styling

With Hive, we’ve added a spe­cial fea­ture to your titles, allow­ing for an extra lay­er of typog­ra­phy. This fea­ture is avail­able both in archives — includ­ing the home­page — and in sin­gle-post views. It will not mod­i­fy your titles, it will only impact their visu­al style.

You can deac­ti­vate this fea­ture by going to the Appear­ance → Cus­tomize → Hive Options tab, and check­ing the Dis­able auto-style post titles check­box.


Titles Styling Rules

The Auto-style post titles fea­ture uses a series of rules based on your title’s punc­tu­a­tion marks and let­ter case. At the moment these include:

  • Upper­case words and words fol­lowed by an excla­ma­tion mark are made «bold»;
  • Every­thing in quotes or paren­the­ses  are made «ital­ic»;
  • Every­thing between : and ? or ! is made «ital­ic»;
  • Every­thing before : is made «bold»;
  • In a title with only a ? in it, every­thing at the left of the ques­tion mark is «bold», and every­thing at the right «ital­ic».

This article applies to Hive, as they share the same underlying structure.
