WARNING! This update includes support for Aesop Story Engine 1.4 being released on Wednesday 12.17.2014. This update to Aesop removes the metabox library that we use to create the story options in the posts here in Novella. So, you\'ll be instructed to install a plugin called CMB2. However, you don\'t have to install this until after you update Aesop Story Engine to 1.4.
We\'ve made sure that everything should be backwards compatible, so please let us know if you have any issues, bugs, or queries!
