Today I tried V2.9 but had to go back to V2.8.7.
The problem I found was with the Accordian Gallery and the Recent Posts. With 2.9 if I want an title and text overlay on an accordian gallery image it also overlays images from the post if the text is short. For example if my number of words is below the max number of words I get images over-laid on my gallery which really spoils the look. If the text of the post is over the max number of words, example I have 100 words and the max (default) set is 55 then there is no problem. When I have text I want just the text ovelaid and when I have less text than the 55 words I still want the text overlaid, just like in 2.8.7, not text and images which ruins the look and function.
The same things happens with a ‘recent posts’ list, with low word count it pulls in images which it didn’t before.
Is this a bug or me doing something wrong or not aware of a new option or something? What ever it is,I can’t use my site like I used on 2.8.7, 2.9 has lost the ability to overlay text on galleries and recent posts.
Andy sorted it, just me the user not using new feature properly
Thanks for the support!
