  • Options to use title only on output of lists
  • Hide Excerpt on FD Single Post
  • Single column for the “Columns” output
  • Custom excerpt for FD Single Post — this is helpful when you use pages in this area and want to create a shorter custom excerpt. If nothing is filled in, the standard excerpt will be used (unless its hidden).
June 28, 2016
  • Added mobile column selection for column layout of FD Recent Posts element. Choosing 2 column for mobile will give 2 columns at mobile width and 3 columns for tweener screens. This is for situations like this where you have limited data and one column will look quirky.
  • Added year to the post meta section of single pages – which also displays on archive pages like the News and category landing pages (it had been just month and day.
  • Added meta fields for first and last name to team member data. You can reference the custom meta_key ‘opt-team-last-name’ in the Reorder plugin using the orderby parameter to automatically sort specific queries using this field. You should also set a fallback using ‘slug’ or custom meta_key ‘opt-team-first-name’ for sorting among those with the same last name. This does not change team members already in system, but provides a tool when needed. To utilize, enter team member’s full name in the standard “page title” area, and then first and last name separately in those fields.
