My client has been using Recent Posts Flexslider for months and has been very happy with it. However, after an update today (I'm not sure if it was a core update or not, and they aren't able to tell me) the slider has started showing the first 100 words of the post, rather than the custom excerpts they had set. This is a big problem for them and we need to fix it ASAP if possible - any ideas why it won't show a manual excerpt any more?
I can't remember if there used to be a separate setting to show manual versus automatic excerpts, but there certainly isn't now.
Can anyone suggest anything?
