Hey SP, can you tell me how to place a slider in a category page?

SoloPine

Hi there,

To widgetize a category page go to Appearance > Widget Area > create a new widget area and assign the category you wish > Now go to Hickory Options > Widgetize pages and categories > and enter the category into the category field.

Next you can go to Appearance > Widgets and use the “Homepage: Slider widget” into the new widget area you created

Hi,

I’ve been trying to add photos to some blog posts, and none will show. I’ve added feature photos for the three posts at the top, but they will not show under ‘latest news’ (apart from one that I didn’t do anything to, it just imported that way from blogger)

SoloPine

Hi there,

Could you open a new ticket at http://solopine.ticksy.com and include your site url and wp-admin info so we can take a better look at it. Thanks!

Hi there,

Is there a way to change the size of the thumbnails for images in grid view on the category pages?

Thanks!

SoloPine

Hi there,

If you go to functions.php and look on line 101 you should see:

add_image_size( ‘newsfeed’, 300, 300, true );

change 300, 300 to the size you wish (it’s recommend you only change the height, otherwise you’ll need to make some adjustment to the layout. The height is the last number)

After that you need to regenerate your thumbnails via the plugin called Regenerate Thumbnails :)

Hello I’ve been using your theme for a long time now and love it. However, is there a way to disable the autosave feature on posts? Mine is hanging up and causing the Save Draft button to grey out so I cannot click on it. The autosave won’t finish autosaving and I’ve lost several posts mid way through.

Please help. Thank you,

Jordan

Hi Jordan,

Could you please open a ticket at http://solopine.ticksy.com and provide us with your wp-admin info and site url so we can try and fix it for you. Thanks!

It seems like you fixed it with the new update. Thank you. I have another question. My site response/load time is getting slower and slower. Is there something I can do to speed it up? My google reports say the Site Health is POOR because of poor load times. Please let me know what I can do to speed up the websites load. I’ve already looked on the hosting/server side and its set to maximum. :(

SoloPine

Hi Jordan,

I’d recommend installing a cache plugin such as WP Super Cache :)

Here and there my publish/update button will just grey out. It looks like some others may have had this issue but I did not see how to fix it myself. What should I do?

SoloPine

Hi Traft,

We recently sent out a new update which fixes this issue. You can go ahead and re-download the theme. Only file changed is the functions.php file

Cheers

Hi! I have a couple of problems with my website and I wonder if you could be of help: 1. It’s been a week now that my website (with your theme) looks bigger, it has not the same dimension like before. Have you got any idea of what happened? Please take a look: http://www.toohappytobehomesick.com/

2. When I write paragraphs in my post, I can’t add any space between them. For example look at this post: http://www.toohappytobehomesick.com/5-modi-per-passare-il-tempo-su-un-volo-aereo-se-preferite-dormire-non-leggete/ When I add a double space between the end of paraghraph 1 and paragraph 2, and save it, then I check the post and no space was saved.

Thanks!! :)

SoloPine

Hi Elisabett,

Did your fix these issue? I don’t see them when I browse your site :)

Thanks for your patience!

Hi all! We’d like to thank everyone who has been sending us general theme and support questions for your patience. We were married in 2012 though are just now having our wedding reception this weekend. That being the case, friends & family from around the world have descended on us in advance of the festivities and it’s been quite difficult to find significant time to reply to all inquiries. We promise to return to work 110% as soon as possible. Again, thank you so much for your patience!

Congrats on your reception!

I am having an issue. At random times when I try to access an old post through my Dashboard-Posts, the entire website will crash and say No Data Received. It will return in about 2-3 minutes of refreshing. Unsure why this is happening. Please help.

Default-user

Thanks again for all your help! One quick one, can the theme support some sort of web shop? Recommended ones? Thanks

SoloPine

Thanks Jordan! Unfortunately we haven’t tested the theme with any eCommerce plugins. In most cases you would probably need to style the plugins so they would fit into the theme

Default-user

Sounds good. Is there any way to disable the date of posts showing up?

Hello,

I’d like to change the link that my header photo links to, could you please assist?

itsthegoodguys.com is the link.

Thanks a bunch!

SoloPine

Hi there,

First off, thanks for your patience! We’ve had our wedding reception this week and it’s been really busy!

Is the header photo a regular logo you have uploaded via the theme options?

Hi again :) I was looking for the Vine Icon. Could you help me a little bit with the class name for Vine Icon? I need to change one social account (dribbble), for Vine, the code isn’t problem I guess, the problem is the icon class name, I was looking for on Font Awesome but I don’t get it yet. It could be another icon class name in the mean time. But it could be great to have Vine Icon in header.

Thanks :D

SoloPine

Hi Lupax,

The class name would be “fa fa-vine” :) However Hickory has not yet updated to the latest fontawesome yet. You can do this by going to functions.php and on line 12 replace this:

//netdna.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/3.2.1/css/font-awesome.css

with:

//maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/4.1.0/css/font-awesome.min.css

Do you know if this theme conflicts with the Advanced Custom Fields plugin? I can’t seem to get them to display at all?

SoloPine

Hi there,

I haven’t tested the theme with the plugin. If you open a new ticket at http://solopine.ticksy.com and include your site url and wp-admin info I can take a better look at your set up. Thanks!

1) Can you place ad anywhere you want on the homepage and inside pages of the theme or only in specific places?

2) Can you customize the layout of the homepage and inside pages or just the homepages? How flexible is the page builder?

SoloPine

Hi there,

You’re setting up your homepage/pages with the widgets we have provided with the theme. So you can be pretty flexible :)

Hi,

Just having a slight issue with the theme. I have a new logo for the footer. I want to have it show on the footer with black as the footer colour but with the logo showing with the white box around it only.

The site is nextlevelguy.com and I’ve added the logo at the logo to the bottom to show you what I mean.

Can you please let me know how I can do this?

Thanks, Ian

SoloPine

Hi Ian,

It looks like you’ll need to make the white space in your logo transparent and then save it as a png file.

Cheers

I can’t seem to figure this out.. I have the front page as a grid layout, but still cannot figure out pagination. How do I create a paginated post, similar to the list layout (of places to visit) you guys have done in your sample? Thank you!

SoloPine

Hi there,

You need to have the Theia Post Slider plugin installed which comes with the theme. Next you need to use the <!-nextpage-> tag to create the paginated post effect. We have also included the Theia Post slider documentation in the downloaded Hickory folder you get from Themeforest.

Hi, first of all, your theme is awesome! I’ll buy it but I have one question first. I’m writing in Greek language, what fonts are support this language? So I can check them in the web before buy this theme.

Thanks :)

SoloPine

Hi there,

Thank you! You would need to check google.com/fonts and see which one are compatible with the Greek characters :)

I tried creating a ticket but there is no record of my purchase on Envato. It’s gone. I paid for this theme and have had it on my site for months now.

My issue is when a user clicks the tweet button on our site on an article it shows up on twitter twice (the url duplicates). Need this fixed, Thanks!

That’s strange! You might want to contact Themeforest Support and ask about that.

Could you try going to single.php and on line 230 you should see:

data-text="Check out this article: <?php the_title(); ?> - <?php the_permalink(); ?>"

Now delete the “the_permalink” so it should look like this:

data-text="Check out this article: <?php the_title(); ?> -"

I would like to learn if there is a way to widgetize a category as if it were a page.

Here’s a sample of how a particular category page is arranged now: http://www.industry-denver.com/Category/industry-campaign-sample/

And I am hoping to make it do something similar to this page: http://www.industry-denver.com/tdn14/

Basically, I want readers to be able to click the category links and be brought to a widget-arranged page as opposed to an aggregated grid-style category page

Where can I find that information?

SoloPine

Hi there,

You can widgetize a category just like you would do it on a page :-)

Go to Hickory Options > Widgetize categories and pages > Select your category in the category field.

Next go to Widget Areas > Add New > and select the category under “Taxonomies”.

Default-user

Great, I got that far. Now is there a way to make this category page full width? Thanks for all the support.

SoloPine

This is a little more complicated. Please go to http://solopine.ticksy.com and open a new ticket. Then we can try and point you in the right direction.

Cheers

Hello, I have now 9 posts listed in the widgeted area at the home page, how can I change the amount to 12?

http://www.pien.tv/
SoloPine

Oh sorry, you’re using the homepage widget? In the widget setting you should be able to increase the amount of posts shown

Default-user

Thanks, I knew that I could adjust it somewhere but could not figure it out anymore!

SoloPine

Glad we got it sorted! :-)

I am having THE hardest time getting this theme set up. This is like my 100th Wordpress set up so I don’t know what the issue is. I must be missing something simple. I really want my site set up like the demo. I’ve read through the documentation numerous times. None of my widgets are working. Please advise!

SoloPine

Replied to your ticket :-)
