Blog headings disappear after upgrade to 2.6.0.0

I've just noticed that since upgrading to 2.6 blog post headings have disappeared on the post details page.

Example: 

Blog

https://www.mynydd-du.org.uk/results 

Details 

https://www.mynydd-du.org.uk/llanbedr-to-blaenafon-race-results-2018  (no headings or edit links)

I see a lot of nice changes were made to the blog module, but can you give a simple pointer on what has caused this particular change and how to set it back to how it was?

thanks

Try unchecking the "Use Post Titles as Page Heading?" setting under "Miscellaneous" in the blog settings.

The idea behind this setting is if you're using the PageHeading control you can have the blog title render there instead of it's original place.

HTH.

Thanks Elijah that worked.

Could I suggest this is changed to make that setting False by default after upgrades?

Re: Blog headings disappear after upgrade to 2.6.0.0

Hi Crispin,

We were already checking if the page's ShowPageHeading setting was true or not but a scenario could exist where a skin supported showing the page heading and the option was selected but then a different skin is used which doesn't show the page heading so the option to disable ShowPageHeading setting goes away and then blog pages still think they need to use the page heading. That's quite confusing so I added some code to check the skin to see if the PageHeading control is there and if it's not, ignore the settings altogether and show the post title in it's original place.

Thanks,
Elijah
