    1. Hi Ivan,

      To remove category above the post please copy and paste the following css code in the custom css area of the customizer.

      .arouse-single-post .arouse-entry-category {
      display: none;

      Thank You.

  1. Hi
    Very nice theme. But my blog is in Polish. How can I translate ‘Latest Articles’ or ‘Previous Article’ strings? It would be nice becouse my blog is about PURE Polish language 😉

  2. Great theme. I just left a 5 star review on I’m having trouble with the Sidebar in the Arouse theme on mobile. It is only half the width of the mobile screen, regardless which widgets I use. Even when I remove all of them but a simple text box it has the same problem, leading me to believe it is a CSS problem. But I don’t know code and don’t know how to fix it. Can you help? Thanks.

    1. Hello Jason,

      Thanks a lot for the review. I really appreciate it. And yes between 768px and 990px sidebar width is half of the screen. And I also feel that, it is better to show it in full width. I will change it in the very next theme update which will be issued in 3, 4 days.

      However if you are in a hurry, you can do the following.

      Go to index.php and in line 83 you will find a div that is wrapped the get_sidebar() function, called – <div class=”col-xs-12 col-sm-6 col-md-4″>
      Change the col-sm-6 to col-sm-12 like this. – <div class=”col-xs-12 col-sm-12 col-md-4″>

      And please do the same thing in archive.php page.php and single.php files also.

      Thank You.

      1. Amazing. Thank you. Worked perfectly. Quick question about the Pro Theme. Is there a Popular Posts Widget included that is similar in style to the Recent Posts Theme that is included with the Unpaid version? Also, is there a way to preview what the Instagram Widget you advertise would look like in the Pro Theme? Thanks again.

    1. Hi Xiaoy,

      To hide them please copy and paste the following css code in the Additional CSS section of the customizer.

      .arouse-slider-details {
      display: none;

      Thank You.

  3. Hello,

    I am using the Arouse theme with the slider active, however, the slider is not appearing on my blog. It used to work fine, but at some point the slider disappeared and I cannot figure out how to get it back.

    1. Hi,

      Do you remember the last change you did like the last plugin you installed? It shows an javascript error on your site. Try deactivating plugins.
