Before updating, make sure you back-up all your custom made themes.
With version 2.4, things went a little different. We tried (you judge) to make an easier, funnier and more extensible way of creating themes for FeaturedArticles slideshows. Themes prior to this version should still work. Also, starting with this version we moved the plugin to a different website called CodeFlavors. This will be the home of all plugins we are going to develop for WordPress from now on. If you find yourself into trouble with this update, we have docs, community forums and we'll be happy to help you.
You'll notice something missing!. Automatic placement is no longer displayed into slideshow settings by default. To enable it, go to Settings and check the Enable automatic slider insertion option. Why we did this? Well, starting with next version (after 2.4), this automatic placement will become much, much better. We have some ideas, we just need to figure out some things first and if we would have done this with this update, it would have taken too long.
Now, here are the update instructions (automatic update will also work):
If you are upgrading to the current version, make sure you backup all the files of the previous installation. After you backup, go to wp-admin and disable the plugin. With a FTP client, delete the plugin completely.
<?php FA_display_slider(YOUR SLIDER ID HERE); ?>
For your convenience, once you save a slider, under Manual Placement you will see the code needed to be placed into your theme files to display it.
