Comment (by Lorelle):

 I searched throughout the Theme's code and can't find anything to override
 the call to the post formats. I continue to look, and it continues to only
 work in the Child Theme, not the Parent. Somehow, it isn't being inherited
 to the Child Theme.

 On GaryJ's point, I believe that post format support must be set in the
 Parent Theme, especially when it comes to multisite or blog networks using
 Child Themes per blog. While the Child Theme should have rights to
 overwrite the Parent settings for Post Formats, it should be set by the

 Hopefully soon there will be a Setting to manage post formats from the UI
 as this messing with the Theme code is very messy as placement of the post
 formats code must be done very specifically, allowing for Child Blogs on a
 network to pick and choose their options. Having a setting that would
 allow choosing the post format types and adding a touch of CSS to style
 the chosen ones would make all WordPress Themes be open to this option and
 not just those with the feature installed. Dreaming.
