Hey SoloPine,

First of all, GREAT theme. Looks terrific!

One preliminary note: it would be GREAT if I could include a thumb for a STATIC PAGE on my widgetized home page. As far as I know, I can only include thumbs from posts or “featured” posts.

Or am I missing something?

Sincerely, Erik

SoloPine

Hi Erik,

Replied to your email :)

My question is similar to the one above. On the widget home page I cant seem to put static content above the 3 featured pictures area.

SoloPine

Yeah unfortunately the widget area starts below the featured area. However you could create a new widget area and insert it on top of the featured area. Send us an email and we can point you in the right direction!

Hi there, Great theme, I’m really enjoying using it!

I have two questions though, both quite important, as the site has now gone live, so quick help would be really appreciated!

I moved the site onto the production server, and now the featured images on the widgetized homepage won’t show! Have you any idea why? I can provide wp-admin details if you need them.

Also, I want to add some padding to the sidebar, but for the life of me I can’t figure out how!

Many thanks for your answers!

Sorry, the above question is actually from me! I was logged in using the wrong account. Can you ignore it and reply to this comment? Thanks!

Best support I have ever received!

Glad we could help Gary!

Hey SoloPine, I was wondering if I would be able to increase the number of words to display in the blog list. Thank you.

Default-user

I am using the list layout.

SoloPine

If you open up index.php and look on line 105 you’ll see following:

<?php echo hick_string_limit_words(get_the_excerpt(), 62); ?>

Change 62 to a higher number. Or if you are using a sidebar on your homepage look on line 107 and increase the number 19

Default-user

Great, thank you!

Hello! I’m really enjoying the theme.

Is it possible to put the text of the main headings in the center of the line?

SoloPine

Hi there,

You mean on the post pages right? You can go to hickory options > Custom CSS > add following css code:

.post-header h1 { word-wrap:normal; text-align:center; }

Default-user

Yes. Thanks!

Hi, we have spoken earlier. How can i have custom-category sidebar for posts. For example if the post is about category A, i would like to populate Category A posts on the right sidebar. Many Thanks in advance

SoloPine

Hi there,

You can use the plugin called WooSidebars, which is bundled with the theme :)

Hi there ! Thanks again and congratulations for the great design. Love it !

I’m facing one issue though. I set a Widgetized Homepage Layout, on which I’m now using both the “homepage post” widget and the “3 column post” widget.

The problem comes with the “3 column post” widget : the title of the widget actually links to the “uncategorized” category. I checked your live preview and the same issue happens when hitting the “Latest in Technology” title.

Any idea on how to solve it ? Many thanks ! ;)

SoloPine

Hi there,

Thanks for finding this issue. We’ll be fixing it in the next update. For now you can go to inc/widgets/homepage_3col_widget.php and on line 97 remove the a tag surrounding the title

Default-user

Thanks for the answer !

Can anyone explain to me why plugins don’t work with this theme? I tried to add shortcodes and a google plus +1 plugin nothing is happening. Also, How can I make my contact page look like the one in the demo, Its under the themes features but I dont see any shortcode options. Is there a hickory widget for the subscribe and follow sidebar?

SoloPine

Hi there,

That’s kind of a broad statement ;) I haven’t come across a plugin that didn’t work with the theme. However, of course we can’t make sure all plugins will work with the theme.

I’d be happy to take a look at the problem you got with the two plugins you are referring to. So could you either provide me with your site url and wp-admin info (send an email through the contact form on our profile page) or let me know the names of these two plugins you are using.

For the contact form, you need to use the plugin called Contact Form 7. We have pre-styled this plugin to look good on Hickory.

And for the subscribe and follow in the sidebar, use the widget called “Hickory: Social” located in Appearance > Widgets.

Cheers

How would I be able to get rid of the posted by author section from the blog list? Thank you!

SoloPine

Open up index.php and look on line 116, delete this bit of code

<?php _e(‘By’, ‘hickory’); ?> <?php the_author_posts_link(); ?>

Hi – i cant seem to get the images to resize on the posts – what size are they meant to be loaded and why won’t they resize on the home page and in the thumbnails? Please help

SoloPine

Is this regarding old thumbnails from before you had Hickory activated? If so you need to run the plugin called Regenerate Thumbnails http://wordpress.org/plugins/regenerate-thumbnails/

However, if this is happening on new posts, please send us an email with your site url and wp-admin info so we can take a better look

Hi there, I just purchased this theme, but I was wondering if you can send me some sample content for the very first time installation.

Thanks in advance.

SoloPine

replied to your email!

Hi, I’m considering purchasing this theme and have a quick question—is there an option to have the top menu bar stay at the top of the screen while scrolling down? Despite its other shortcomings, the theme I currently use has this and it seems to make navigation easier/quicker. If this isn’t a baked-in option, any idea if it would be a complicated change? Thanks in advance for your help!

SoloPine

Hi there,

We do indeed have an option for sticky menu bar :) We added this in version 1.1.2

Default-user

Great—sorry I missed that in the updates. Thanks so much for the quick reply.

Hi there,

How can I add an image to the author?

Thanks.

SoloPine

You need to set up your gravatar (http://en.gravatar.com/) with the email you’re using for your user on your site.

This is an AMAZING theme! I have a quick questions before purchasing… when an update is available, will I be able to update directly via my wordpress dashboard or will I have to re-upload theme files, etc.?

SoloPine

Thank you! You’ll have to re-upload the theme. None of the settings you’ve made will be deleted, however changes you’ve done to the actual theme files will need to be implemented again. Also, it’s a good idea to create a child theme :)

I was just trying to create a gallery post, but somehow it didn’t work. I checked gallery post and then uploaded the image. But the images don’t show in the preview of the post. I noticed the same when I tried to create a video post. Any idea of what I might have missed? Thanks a lot in advance for your help!

Default-user

Strange, I did all that, assigned a feature image etc. On the front page the thumbnail image has the “gallery post” sign, but when I open the full article, it doesn’t display the gallery:

http://www.topphotographyfilms.com/

and

http://www.topphotographyfilms.com/streetphotographers/micro-moments-street-photography-collective-momentum/

Could it be a cache-issue?

SoloPine

Could you send us an email via the contact form on our profile page with your wp-admin info so we can take a better look at the issue, thanks

Default-user

E-Mail is out…

Hi Solo Pines. On the homepage post widget, is there a way to exclude categories? I see I can choose ALL categories, or one category. However, I need to choose all BUT one of my categories. is this possible?

Default-user

Nevermind.-.I see how you guys addressed the issue

SoloPine

Yes, in the new update you can choose multiple categories :)

Hello there! LOVELY theme.

I am wondering the same as geekaboo did a couple of days ago. if you can send me some sample content for the first time installation? :)

Inger

SoloPine

Hi Inger,

Yes, please send us an email through the contact form on our profile page so we know where to send it to!

Great theme, but you could fit a function to select the Featured post better. For Beispil in Quick Edit

SoloPine

Thanks swissky, unfortunately we don’t have an option for that at the moment

Hi, very nice theme. I was wondering if it is possible to center the links in the menu?

SoloPine

It would be possible, but would take some customization to do. Take a look at http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1708054/center-ul-li-into-div to get pointed in the right direction
