    Hi Alex,

    we like your nice and “easy-to-handle”-themes. With two installations we face the following problem on archives-, tag-, category- and blogpage(s) on mobile phones:

    When activating GRIDmode, horizontal scrolling is possible. Seems as if the content is smaller than the screen width. Unfortunately Google Search Console reports: content is too wide for the mobile screen and … Your site is not optimized for mobile Device.

    Is there any workaround for this issue.
    No changes on themefiles have been made.

    Best regards
    Frank

    Hi there, excellent theme! It’s one of my all-time favorites. This is a small issue, but I too am having issues with share counts not displaying. I’m having a difficult time trying to fix it. Do you have any idea what could be causing the problem? Again, thank you for giving the world such a spectacular theme.

    Hi. Is there any way to make some posts “stick” in the sense that they are always the ones listed in the carousel? – i.e. the most important featured posts that you always want readers to see first?
