  • Added Customizer settings under Staff > Social Links to change the default link target, font size and to disable icons (if icons are disabled it displays labels instead)

  • Added Customizer setting under General Theme Options > Pages so you can disable the main page header title for all standard pages

  • Updated Search Results so if you pass on a custom post type parameter in the URL such as ?post_type=staff&s=search_term the search results page will display the entries using the format defined for that post type rather then the default left-thumbnail style (option added in the Customizer to disable this feature if not wanted)
  • Updated Moved “Related Posts” customizer settings for portfolio, staff and blog under their own sub tab to keep things cleaner and make it easier to add more related post settings in the future (the settings will now display always even if the related posts block is disabled under the Post Layout Settings” so that they can be accessed if using a dynamic template for your blog posts)
