    I just installed the new version, and now my featured content gallery doesn't work anymore. I'm off to do some troubleshooting!

    It's fixed now. Just needed to change the code in my home.php file and delete the site cache.

    That's correct. If you upgrade the plugin from version 3.0.1 to version 3.1.0, you will have to change the code that calls the gallery. We had to make this change because of the name of the plugin and the directory. Please see the install & setup page for all the information on making the upgrade, and the new code. Thanks!

    Someone posted some instructions. I'll paste it here so that no one freaks out like I did!

    Update plugin.
    Go to your Theme Editor.
    Find the code for the Content Gallery plugin (it's usually in the "home.php" file but your location may vary depending upon where you have the plugin inserted).

    Find the code that says:

    <?php include (ABSPATH . '/wp-content/plugins/content-gallery/gallery.php'); ?>

    Replace it with this:

    <?php include (ABSPATH . '/wp-content/plugins/featured-content-gallery/gallery.php'); ?>

    Save.

    Check your website and refresh. You may need to clear your cache to see the change.

    mrsmecomber-

    We apologize for the error when updating, we had to make file name changes due to the WordPress Plugin Directory subversion. There wasn't a way to notify people if they auto-upgraded without visiting the plugin homepage.

    Again, our sincere apologies. The good news is now future upgrades will be handled through the plugins menu and will be automatic through WordPress.
