[resolved] Question about update (enchancements) (3 posts)

    Hi,

    When I read the release notes I don't understand what the social links is about and where I can find this:

    Social Links: this module is a canonical source, based on Publicize, that themes can use to let users specify where social icons should link to

    Also can you point me in the right direction what I can do with 'filters' (is this being edited by functions.php). You mention:

    You can now customize the captions, thanks to the jetpack_slideshow_slide_caption filter

    But for what reason you added a filter and what can I do with it?

    Kind regards,

    Willem

    I don't understand what the social links is about and where I can find this:

    Before to be able to use Social Links, you will have to make some changes to your theme. You can read more about it here:

    Also can you point me in the right direction what I can do with 'filters' (is this being edited by functions.php).

    Filters allow you to hook into an existing function to modify its output. You can do that through your functions.php file, or through a plugin.
    You can have a look at this thread to get more familiar with WordPress' actions and filters.
    You can also check this video; it provides some great examples and explains how filters work.

    I hope this helps.
