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!

SoloPine

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

Hi there, thanks for the kind words!

1) When you download the file did you choose “All files & Documentation”? When you unzip that file there should be a folder called documentation :)

2) Yeah, unfortunately you would have to do some customization in order to get that. If you’re not comfortable with PHP I’d recommend you look on microlancer.com for a good WordPress freelancer.

3. It should be under Hickory Options > Logo and header :)

Default-user

Awesome Solo Pine – thanks much! 1. – found it (embarassing! HA!) 2. – ok – will dive into it – just wanted to make sure there wasn’t an easier way ;) 3. Noted – thanks!

One more question: Any way to have captions on slideshows without popping out the image? My captions only work on slideshows when i click on the image and it pops out to lightbox. Would be helpful if you could see the caption in the slideshow. Possible?

Thanks much!

SoloPine

Hi again,

It’s possible, let me see if i can guide you through it!

1) Open up single.php and look on line 77 to 79. Now do following as described in this link: http://pastebin.com/C08tnufi

2) Go to Hickory Options > Custom CSS and add this CSS code:

.flexslider.gallery li .gallery-img { position:relative; width:620px; height:420px; } .flexslider.gallery li .gallery-caption { position:absolute; bottom:0; left:20px; background:#000; color:#FFF; padding:6px; }

you can change the background color, text color and padding to whatever you like.

Hope this helps!

Hi Solo Pine – thanks! Works great – except that now my navigation buttons have moved off the main image and are hanging out on top of my thumbnails and category title when I hover… my guess is that the caption bumped them down?

Anyway to move them back up on the image or remove them entirely?

Thanks much for your awesome service!

SoloPine

Actually i edited my comment 5 mins after i posted it because i saw that issue appearing. Did you read the comment right when i posted it?

Default-user

yup – we’re too fast for each other :) could you please re-post your correct how-to? Thanks!

SoloPine

Hah! The correct how-to is in the comment above. There’s only a few small changes, but it takes care of the issue. The pastebin link has been changed, and the custom css code has been changed slightly as well

Default-user

also – I assume your theme is set up to be able to create a child theme? I’m experiencing an error when creating one…

SoloPine

Yes you’re able to do that. Could you try making your child theme with this code in your style.css file: http://pastebin.com/xu5KLQ0E

Default-user

will do SoloPine – but first need to update my theme. When I try to download again from ThemeForest – all I get is version 1.1.3…. need to be able to download 2.0.2….

Default-user

nevermind on the updated theme—finally worked! tx!

Default-user

Hey Solo Pine – thanks for all your help. Child theme is set up and working well – and i updated to 2.0.2.

But I’m still having that issue where the navigation buttons on the slideshow are below the caption, and partially covering up the title… i used the new pastebin code in single.php and the new custom css… but no dice. Any more ideas? It’s great to have the captions – I would just get rid of the nav buttons if possible?

thanks!

SoloPine

Hi again,

Glad you got the update working out.

That’s strange! It worked for me. To remove the navigation buttons you can add this to your Custom CSS in the Hickory Options:

.flexslider.gallery .flex-direction-nav a { display:none; }

Default-user

awesome thanks :) One more thing… wondering if there is a proper way to override the inc/widgets/homepage_widget.php file? All i need to change about it is to be able to have different colors for categories on the home page. I’ve used the code below for the individual posts, category pages etc and it works just fine – just doesn’t seem to work on the home page. Here is the code – the only part I added was this;

class=”category-’.$category0->slug.’”

to this:

<?php $category = get_the_category(get_the_ID()); if($category0){ echo ‘>term_id ).’” class=”category’.$category0>slug.’”>’.$category0>cat_name.’’; } ?>

Like I said -works everywhere else… so ideas?

thanks much!!

SoloPine

Could you try this: http://pastebin.com/myPZZpjh—tested it and it works for me :)

Default-user

hey SoloPine – thanks for the response… but it looks to be pretty much the same as what i already have. When i paste it in nothing new happens….

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.

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; } }

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! 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

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

SoloPine

Hi there,

Could you try and go to single.php and on line 233 remove this bit of code:

<?php the_permalink(); ?>

Not the one in data-url but the one in data-text

Default-user

Thanks, it worked. Another question. At the moment, the captions I want to use for featured photos is not appearing at the top of the posts. How do I fix that?

SoloPine

You would need to insert this bit of code to single.php:

<?php echo get_post(get_post_thumbnail_id())->post_excerpt; ?>

If you want the caption displayed above the featured image you should insert the code on line 119 before the a tag.

Default-user
Athas Purchased

Thanks again. The caption only works now if the image is normal width but not full width. Also how can I change the color of the caption so it is the same as main text in the post & not the heading?

SoloPine

Ah right, you need to do the same this time in inc/templates/single_full_image.php on line 105. You can wrap the php code in a span and give it a class. Then in your custom css you can add .nameofclass { color:#555; }

Default-user

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

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!

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? :(

SoloPine

Hi noisetrend,

Glad you like the new update! Yes, unfortunately you have to re-download the theme from themeforest and upload it via FTP or delete the current Hickory in your WP Dashboard and upload the new one.

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!!!

Regards

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!
