    Howdy. I’ve been using 2.5.1 but updated to 2.6.1 a day or two ago. Noticed that all of my “Continue Reading” lines and links looked the same– they all matched the first post. So, let’s say my posts were titled “A”, “B”, “C” and “D” I would see an excerpt of each one (that’s good) and a thumbnail of each one (that’s good). The line under “A” would say “Continue Reading A” and it would be a link to A. The line under “B” would say “Continue Reading A” and it would be a link to A” and so would the lines under C and D.

    I tried deleting and reinstalling but that did not help.

    I lucked into finding a link (from you, here) to 2.5.1, which I installed just now. Perfect results again. Thank you very much!

    I took screen shots of the problems if you want them. I suspect this may be theme-specific. I am using “Aaron.”

    Website is christianboyce.com. I use Display Posts on the home page (among others).

    Thanks, I’m looking into issues related to the recent excerpt changes now. Hopefully I’ll have this fixed early next week!

    The next version of the plugin (2.6.2) will fix this issue for you. I’ve tested it with your theme already.

    Your site should prompt you for an update in the next day or so. I’m testing on all the themes used by people reporting the issue already to make sure I fix it across ALL themes before releasing the next update.

    I’m sorry for the inconvenience. I usually do a good job of testing changes prior to release but none of the themes I used had a feature like this.

    More information regarding this change can be found here: https://github.com/billerickson/display-posts-shortcode/issues/110

    Please read through that and let me know if you like how the new features are implemented. I want to make sure these new parameters are implemented the way most users expect them to work because once they start being used I won’t want to change their default behavior.
