    Hello,

    I am having issues with centering blog title. Can you please help?

    Aside from that, is there a way to make it a carousel?
    And to use an icon instead of text as “read more” button?
    And to set the thumbnail ratio if I use the option to clip them to match?

    I agreed to reproduce a project of a designer who can’t wordpress and between him sticking to tiniest details and the our common client changing things up to something completely different, I would really appreciate your help with the home blog 🙂

    here’s the page,
    here is the original design that I would like to reproduce, we are talking about the home blog part.

    Hey,
    Sorry for the delay! You can use this css to center your title:

    h3.hometitle {
        text-align: center;
    }

    You can enable a post carousel on the top of your homepage from Theme Options > Home Page Header. Would this work for you? Kadence Blocks Pro has an option to add a post carousel to your content area through the Post Grid/Carousel block. See here: http://themes.kadencethemes.com/ascend-premium-10/post-grid-carousel/

    The read more can be changed with css as it looks like you’ve already done? And the image ratio will depend on how you decide to add your posts. Let me know what works best!

    Thank you for the reply, really appreciated!
    title centering worked.

    As for the carousel, yes, I would need it after header slider, perhaps just the grid will do as I personally don’t find it essential to have the arrows on the side with the function being just the same… or they up the budget and then I’m happy to use PRO, because I’ve been enjoying your free products for long enough to know it has to be amazing 🙂

    For the read more, I actually just changed the default text to an unicode arrow and I thing as for the character it is enough.

    I was wondering if there is an option to set its color in css separately (aka text color of the “read more” link). And apparently it is also crucial to stick it to the right bottom corner…

    Happy to help!
    This css should change the color and float it right:

    a.kt-excerpt-readmore.more-link {
        color: red;
        float: right;
    }

    Hope that’s helpful!

    Ohh that’s it thank you so much!

    Now I will see if I can get away with being it a grid and not a carousel but I got answer to that too so we can call it a day.
