1. Update Page display options setting

To help user quickly configure layout of filter page: show/hide content element like category, published date, hits, author or custom fields, we added a configuration panel inside each mega filter setting page.

Important Note:

Version 1.1.0 has changes about page display options, you will need to access back-end, configure page display options and save the filter to make the font-end displayed as you expect.

To configure, simply open the mega filter setting page, under the Filter Config panel, select Layout Config, you can drag and drop items from hidden lists to active lists, the enabled items in "Active Lists" will be shown in front-page. The order of items here is also the display order in front-end.

2. Cron jobs controller

Before, when you update content, the new content is not automatically updated in mega filter pages, you have to re-save or index the mega filter from back-end. The new feature - Cron Job allows you to configure to auto index for specific mega filters (1 or more) in defined duration (the time is in miliseconds).
