Updated 18 August 2016: For the latest information on the Post Footer options, see the Knowledge Base.
You may have noticed that after most weblogs there is usually a single line of text and links that identifies data about the post. In TypePad, we call that the post footer. The post footer contains information including author name, post date, category, permalink (the permanent link to your post that readers can link to), and links to the post comments and TrackBacks.
Using a basic template set you can configure the post footer to show different information and formatting.
How to Customize the Post Footer
On the Design tab for your weblog, click the Content link for the current set.
This will take you to the Content page for the template, where you can select the content to show on your weblog. Under Your Weblog Posts is the Weblog Post Footer setting. Pull down the menu and you can choose different combinations of the footer elements. Select the format you like for your post footer and click the Save Changes button to apply the change to your weblog.
If you have multiple authors and you want your authors to receive credit for the posts they write, be sure that you have selected a footer option that display author names. Likewise, if you have category archiving enabled and you'd like to list what category the posted is from, you'll want a footer option that displays a category name.
The date, time, and language format is taken from the settings chosen in the display setup of the weblog. This is on the Configure tab, then click the "Display" link in the tab sub-nav. The formats are in the Weblog Post Options section: Format for date display, Format for time display, and Language for date display.
