Septera 0.9.4/.5 conceals the landing page

Septera version 0.9.4/.5 changes the way the landing page is activated. From now on it will be necessary for a static page to be assigned as the WordPress homepage for the landing page to become active.

You will now also be able to select what kind of featured content is displayed on the bottom part of the landing page: latest posts (previous behaviour), static page (the new default) or disabled.

1) These filters can be used with add_filter( ‘wp_calculate_image_srcset’, ‘__return_false’ ); or add_filter( ‘septera_featured_srcset’, ‘__return_false’ ); Note: This filter is no longer needed as the theme’s image manipulation functionality can be turned off entirely by setting the featured image height to zero in the options.
