Checking this option displays an author bio and photo at the end of each single blog post, with the author’s name linking to an archive of their posts. This is especially useful for blogs with multiple authors. Each user should have a Gravatar connected to their account’s email address and fill out their name and bio in their user profile settings.

Show Post Pingbacks & Trackbacks

Check this option to show pingbacks and trackbacks on your posts. This does not disable Pings on your blog, it just hides them.

Show Link & Quote Titles on Blog Index

Check this option to show post titles for Quote and Link post types. By doing this you can set a post title, but prevent it from displaying it on the blog page.

Show Categories on Blog Index

Image, Video, or Gallery formats will take first image or video and display it above the post content, allowing it to expand beyond the maximum content width.
