    I'm having an issue with your (Free) theme. I'm trying to replicate how your site looks like however I'm finding it difficult to do so.

    Example the blog section, I don't have a section or appearance setting which allows me to create a blog style design like this page -

    Do I need to download additional plugins to do this?

    Hope to hear from you soon.


    • Serge

      Hello Sebastian,
      Thank you for choosing our theme.
      There is no need for additional plugins, you just have to take a better look at the customization.
      First try to setup the blog page. Go to Admin Dashboard › Settings › Reading. And select Posts page.
      If you need further help please use the specific Forum category or contact us via our Contact Form.
      Have a nice day.

    Isn't there a way to disable the slide out menu?

    • Serge

      please contact us via our Contact form and provide a screenshot. In case you are speaking about the mobile version menu there is no way to disable it or you will disable the navigation.

    Hi, since cronus is a child theme of tempo will there be security updates for cronus? Or am I save as long as I keep tempo up to date?

    • Serge

      We provide regular updates for Tempo and Tempo child themes. You should update both of them, Tempo and Cronus.
      Have a nice day.

    Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/yeotan/PAGENAME/wp-content/themes/cronus/templates/footer/prepend-social.php on line 8

    I am getting this error. The last thing I did before this error appeared was change the links in the social tab of appearance - customize. I reverted all of it back to orignal but the error still persists. Kindly help.

      I need to debug but you can replace the file with original. Download the original pack from our website.

      Cronus WordPress theme is a child theme of Tempo WordPress Theme so you need update Tempo WordPress Theme and Cronus WordPress Theme.
