Default post settings

is there a way to set the default post settings (like post template to use) when a new post is created?

Post template, no. You can set whether new posts are posted or emailed by default but that’s about all.

thank you. I will look if there’s something that I can change in the theme to force that.

A theme can’t control what happens in the admin panel. You’d need to fork the Ember app that runs the admin panel.

Speaking specifically about the default post template, I would suggest if you use a template often enough that you want it as default in the editor, then it should just be post.hbs.

You can make your most-used template into post.hbs, and if you still want access to the theme’s original post.hbs, just make it into a custom template file.
