    (I know you prefer to use Github but I can’t seem to understand how this site works haha)

    Which I will use for my splash page, as I use Hueman for my blog. Thank you so much for your tasteful yet powerful themes.

    Hello, thank you for the great theme Blogrow! It seems that it is created entirely for me. I had a single problem. When I turn on the section Blog Layout Grid style, then in my posts on the main page disappear the “read more”. How do I add them? This is the only thing that I was missing. Unfortunately, the standard style does not suit me. Thank you in advance.

  9. Dennis says:

    Is it possible to get breadcrumbs under the page title? If so, which file to I have to edit?

  10. Wim says:

    Looking great! Today I checked if there where updates of Hueman, read the story of the theme and dicided that today was a great day to change the theme again. Once in a while I have to ;-).
    I see that for a nice look, the pictures of the featured posts must be of the same size (or ratio?). Would be nice if this could be scaled in anyway. Now the portrait and landscape formats make it a little ….. less nice.
    So, next, I’m going to translate the theme in Dutch (like I once did for Hueman). Can I drop it somewhere?
    Thanks again, a big hug 🙂 and a prosperous 2016!!

    Greetings,
    Wim

  13. Septus says:

  14. Dennis says:

    I made a empty page for the overall blog page. But only the row with the big photo’s are filled. Beneath that row the page is empty. Any idea?

    • Alexander says:

      Make sure the empty page is set as “Posts page” in Settings > Reading, and that it doesn’t have any page template set.
