  • Removed the use of individual global options variables and adjusted all functions to use the global options array instead
  • Renamed global $fonts and $socialNetworks variables to use ‘parabola_’ prefix
  • Cleaned up theme-loop.php; renamed several functions for consistency:
        parabola_custom_excerpt_more     ->    parabola_excerpt_morelink
        parabola_continue_reading_link   ->    parabola_excerpt_continuereading_link
        parabola_auto_excerpt_more       ->    parabola_excerpt_dots
        parabola_trim_excerpt            ->    parabola_excerpt_html
        parabola_posted_on               ->    parabola_meta_before
        parabola_posted_after            ->    parabola_meta_after

If you have customized any files that call these functions in your child theme, you will need to rename them in your code as well.
