  • New Feature: CurateThis default behavior. Now you have the option to choose how the CurateThis shortcut works. The options are: Show Curate Action Screen, Create a New Post, or Create a New Page. For most setups you’ll either choose the first 2 options. If you are always creating a new post then you’ll want to set the default to “Create New Post”.  See Tutorial
