If you have troubles since the update to WordPress 4.5 please read this post before opening a new thread.
I want to format some single blog posts like the portfolio single entry. Is there an easy way or some notes on how to do this. I installed the post templates plugins but no help.
Unfortunately loop files won’t help you in this case because the content classes in single.php and single-portfolio.php are different too. I’d recommend to make a copy of single-portfolio.php and rename the file to single_custom.php. Then install http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/custom-post-template/ and in single_custom.php replace:
* This template controlls the portfolio single entries:
* These entries are generated by this file in conjunction with includes/loop-portfolio-single.php
Template Name Posts: Portfolio Post Template
