    Showed the first three photos – then stopped showing anything other than the title.


  2. Alexander S. Kunz says:

    The old Carousel used to show the title, the caption AND the long description (excerpt). The new one only shows the title. Can this be customized?

    This is great! How does one get involved with early release and the development process?
