Just purchased and am looking forward to diving in this weekend to switch our site over to Hickory! I’ve seen you mention that there aren’t any shortcodes built into the theme, but as it pertains to columns, is there any way to format post content into multiple columns? I’ve done this in other responsive themes with shortcodes, but wondered if there was an easily implementable way to do it in this theme? Definitely not a deal-breaker, but it would be a nice way to format some of our content. Thanks!

Hi there,

I’d recommend using this plugin: http://wpexplorer-demos.com/symple-shortcodes/ if you scroll to the bottom, you’ll see all the possible columns you can create :)

Hi Solo Pines – totally loving this theme, so easy to use and saves me tons of time from having to customize a lot! I have a few questions for you:

1. I didn’t seem to get any documentation when i downloaded the file – can you send it to me?

2. Is there a way I can make the Category links different colors for each category? For example: Category A (the title link) would be Blue, Category B would be Red…. am thinking I could do with some php – or make new category templates… looking for a clean solution.

3. How can i turn on a banner ad in the header? For some reason I can’t find it in Hickory Options… is it somewhere else?

Thanks much! hlr37 (at) drexel.edu

SoloPine

Okay, can you check the source code on your homepage and find a place where the category is being displayed. Then check what it says in the class=”category-...”

Default-user

and then the category text doesn’t list anything else inside it…. it has these span classes around each category.

SoloPine

Could you send us an email with your site url and wp-admin info so we can take a better look

Hi!

Im going crazy wiht one problem: in www.bodasenaranjuez.com, the inner borders of the widgets of the footer doesnt work well in responsive. What can I do? I cant find the solution.

Thanks!

SoloPine

Hi there, we are aware of this issue and will fix it in the next update. If you go to Hickory Options > Custom CSS > and add the code below, you should get rid of it.

@media only screen and (min-width: 768px) and (max-width: 960px) { .widget_area { background:none !important; } }

@media only screen and (max-width: 767px) { .widget_area { background:none !important; } }

Default-user

Thanks!

can i have rectangular size thumbnails ?

SoloPine

Hi there, yes you can edit the thumbnail sizes with a bit of change in the code

hey, since a few days I have the problem that I can’t make any changes at the Hickory Options panel, because the loading bar is freezing. How can I fix this problem?

Thank you!

SoloPine

Hmm, might be a plugin you installed which is conflicting with the theme options. Could you try and deactivate any new plugins you installed and see if that caused the issue. Otherwise could you send us an email with a link to your site and wp-admin info so we can take a better look at the issue. Thanks

Hi,

This template is compatible with bbpress ?

Thx !

SoloPine

Unfortunately we haven’t tested the theme with bbpress

Hi! Loving the theme! :)

Is there a way to kill the feature slider on tablet & mobile view?

Thanks!

SoloPine

Hi there,

You could add following to Hickory Options > Custom CSS:

@media only screen and (min-width: 768px) and (max-width: 960px) { #featured_area { display:none; } }

@media only screen and (max-width: 767px) { .widget_area { #featured_area { display:none; } }

Hi SoloPine, Cheers for an awesome theme—it was easily the smoothest implementation of a new theme I’ve ever done. Two non-pressing issues that I was wondering about as we begin using the theme with our site:
  • We’re using all full-width pages now without a sidebar…is there any way to make “full width post” the default? It would be one less thing to remember with every new post.
  • We love the look of a gallery at the top of the post and are wondering if there’s any way to insert the same type of gallery on a review page.
Thanks!
SoloPine

Hi there,

Thanks so much for the kind words!

1) You can go to admin/metabox/post_type.php and on line 325 you’ll see this:

‘default’ => ‘normal_post’,

change it to:

‘default’ => ‘full_post’,

2) If you go to single.php and look on line 66 you’ll see:

<?php elseif(vp_metabox('hickory_post.hickory_post_type') == 'gallery') : ?>

change it to:

<?php elseif(vp_metabox('hickory_post.hickory_post_type') == 'gallery' || vp_metabox('hickory_post.gallery.0.images')) : ?>

Now when you create your review post, you first click on gallery and upload your images, then click review and fill out your scores. After that just leave the post type on review.

Let me know if it works out for you

Default-user

The first edit worked like a charm—I should’ve known to search for ‘default’. For the second edit to allow a gallery to display on review posts, I’m getting an error after your suggested edit to single.php: “Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_BOOLEAN_OR, expecting ’:’ in [...]hickory/single.php on line 66”

I’m not fluent in PHP, but double-checked that I made the edit you included. Any ideas? Thanks!

SoloPine

Oh strange, works on my end. Could you send us an email through the contact form on our profile page with a link to your site and wp-admin info so we can check it out

1) Is there any way to move the review module to the top of the page or a custom location?

2) Is there a way to set certain items to default off; featured image, author info, etc?

SoloPine

1) If you go to single.php and look on line 165 you’ll see:

<?php the_content(); ?>

move this bit of code below the review code. So move it to line: 214, right before you see this bit of code:

<?php if(vp_metabox(‘hickory_post.show_tags’) == 1) : ?>

2) Unfortunately that’s not possible at the moment, you’d have to do some customization in order to get that.

Hey! I was wondering if there is any way of taking out the logo all together because when I don’t put a logo, the Hickory logo shows up. Thanks!

SoloPine

Hi Mike,

You’ll need to remove that from the actual theme file. So go to inc/headers/innerheader.php (or if you’re using header layout 2 or 3, choose the other innerheader files). Then then find the div called logo and delete everything in between

Where are the html files that were said to be included? Thats the reason I purchased this template!

Hi, thank for the theme. Link is appearing twice in tweet message when I try to tweet a post. How do I fix this?

Hi again. I can’t find the single_full_image.php template in Editor.

SoloPine

You’ll need to access it via a FTP program, or you might be able to use this plugin http://wordpress.org/plugins/wpide/ this should allow you to see all theme files in the editor

I installed the plug-in and I successfully changed it. Thanks for all your help.

Hi guys,

Great looking theme! You can tell you guys put a lot of thought into it.

I emailed you guys on Friday and got no reply yet. I have some pre-purchase questions:

1. Has Hickory been tested with WPML? If not, do you offer another alternative for multilingual blogs?

2. Is Hickory compatible with WooCommerce?

3. Is there a way to highlight the selected menu that is currently being browsed?

4. Is there a way to show that certain menu items have drop down menus?

5. Have you tested Hickory with any event management/listing plugins?

Thank you!

hi, SoloPine. Could you please email me sample pages or content for the demo site? then I can reuse the “Contact me”,”About US” page as template. Thanks in advance.

Default-user

Got the file. Thanks. One question : After I import the xml, the “Contact US”, didn’t display contact form correctly , only shows “[contact-form-7 id=”151” title=”Contact form 1”]” . Link: http://sofashioning.com/contact-us/ . How to fix this ? Please help.

SoloPine

Hi you need to install the plugin called “Contact Form 7” :)

Default-user

It works , thanks,

How can I update this theme? I usually get a notification that says “update automatically” but not for this one.

I love the new music updates ;) Glad my feedback was taken in consideration!

I want to start using it. Do I have to update manually? :(

noisetrend

Ah bummer :/ I can’t figure this out. I want to keep all my customization for noisetrend.com.

SoloPine

Well, all your Hickory settings and widgets will stay the same. Only changes you’ve made to the actual theme files will be overwritten. Have you done any changes in the theme files?

noisetrend

I got it to work! It works perfect. Thanks again.

Hi, i really love your theme but my site will be English & French and i are using WPML plugin to manage that.

I already translate your default.po in french. So almost everything works except:

1 – “NO Comments” even translated in the .po/.mo for french it still display “NO Comments” instead my french translation “Aucun commentaires”

2 – For the header logo image i add. For the english side is ok but how i change it for the french side???

3 – For the footer bottom copyright at the bottom of the site, how can i manage it to be english and french??? Right now it only appear in English i supposed du it managed by your framework instead be part of the theme directly.

Again great theme!!!

Just want to say you are very good guys. Your support is awesome and your theme fantastic!!! Thanks for your help!

I am having issues with the Popular Tab widget. It doesn’t seem to reflect the current popular posts. I verified it against the Jetpack widget, which is showing different results. Can I reset anything?

http://quench.me/quench/living/

SoloPine

Hi there,

The widget list the most commented posts in the popular tab. I’m not sure how Jetpack does it

Default-user

It uses the most trafficked pages. Thanks.

SoloPine

Okay, I’m afraid it would take quite a bit of customization to change the way the popular tab works. I’d recommend either using Jetpack instead or finding a freelancer who could help you out

Hi Solopine,

Firts, thank you for the great work you put in this theme. It’s perfect and very intuitive.

I have a little question though : is it possible to put a Deezer (equivalent of Spotify) sound into a “Music Post” instead of a Spotify link ?

SoloPine

Hi Peter,

Unfortunately we dont have an option for Deezer at the moment. I’d recommend you go to http://developers.deezer.com/musicplugins/player—here you can generate code you can insert to your post

Default-user

Yeah I usually do like this for now. Thanks ;)

Hello, I’m having a font issue. What is the name of the default font for this theme? I’ve changed it but I can’t go back to the default one now :( How can I change the font size? I think it’s a little too small for readers. I of course don’t want to change the font size any time I write a new post, but set the size just once for all posts.

Thanks for the help :)

SoloPine

Hi there,

You can simply leave the font options blank in order to get back to the default fonts. For bigger text font you can go to Hickory Options > Custom CSS > add:

p { font-size:15px; }

or whatever size you want

Default-user

Thanks for the fast reply!
