Upgrading from an earlier version?

  • Upgrades from prior to 2.0.0 we retain the "legacy" template for you. To change which template to use, find the "Template" option under the "Display" tab.
  • If you used the "More Button", you will need to add in your own HTML into one of the new fields since the more button is now removed.
  • If you used custom thumbnail settings you will need to update them. You can now choose from pre-defined sizes available to WordPress. If you need an additional image size please see how to add image sizes.
