Hey SoloPine,

Is there any way to insert custom Logo Headers on pages?

Thanks for your time

Hi there,

Unfortunately not without doing some customization. You could use the is_page() function: in the inc/headers/innerheader.php file to change the logo depending on what page you’re on


Is there a way to revise the code in the Homepage widgets to pull from tags? I’d like to have the option to pull from either a specific tag or category (I’m happy to have two separate widgets for that).


Hi amy,

It’s possibly but would unfortunately take some customization which would be out of the scope of support we’re offering. I’d recommend you take a look at they have great & cheap WP freelancers

Hello SoloPine

I have just purchased the theme and have to tried to upload it to wordpress and the error message “The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet” continues to appear.

Please advise me on what to do

Thanks Amara

Hi Amara,

This is a common issue, Themeforest has even written a little article on how to fix it: check the “Common ‘Broken Theme’ and ‘Stylesheet Missing’ WordPress Issues” section

Hi The thumbnail images are not loading in the homepage slider. I changed controlnav:”thumbnail” in hicory.js. and it gives the img src as undefined.

Hi there,

The slider is not set up to use thumbnails, you would have to go to /inc/featured_area/featured-2.php and change the code. I recommend you look for a freelancer to help you out with this :)

Hi there,

I’m trying to remove the sidebar from my HP ( I’ve disabled it in HP options but it remains. Cleared my browser cache, no luck. I have the feeling I’m missing something very obvious, can you help me out?


Hi there,

Are you using a page as your homepage? In that case you need to change the page template to “Full width” :)

Beautiful, thank you!

Hi!... I bought this theme a while ago and now i want to upgrade it to 2.0.3.

Is there any way of doing this automatically? or I just have to redownload it and overwrite all files on the server?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, unfortunately that’s the way you’ll have to do it. You can also go to Appearance > Themes > Delete Hickory > And then upload the new version

Before I buy. does this template come with demo content?

Hi there, We can provide you with the demo xml file yes :)

Ok cool thanks.. I will make the prchase later on today

Solo Pines! Love the Wordpress Theme! Two questions for you:

1-Do you think the color scheme for my site works?

2- Notice that the “Latest Posts” Heading bar and “Search” bar on the side don’t align. Is there a way to get them to align right? I think that would bring it all together nicely!

Thank you!

Hi there,

1) It’s definitely a bold move to use so many different colors, but i think it works in this case. Though, I would probably make the color on the “Latest Posts” bar a little darker, right now the text is a bit hard to read. Also I’m not sure about the grey bg color in the footer. Maybe keep it black? Just my 2 cents ;)

2) It seems like there’s an empty div that creates that little gap. Could you send us an email with your wp-admin info so we can take a better look at the issue.


I sent it to you guys! let me know if you got it and what else youneed from me.

Replied to your email :)

Having a lot of trouble with scheduled posts not showing up after they publish. I have to go in and update them every single time to make them show up. Is this a bug in the theme? I’ve never had this problem with Wordpress before.

Thanks guys.

Hi David,

That’s strange, have done scheduled posts on Hickory without any issues. Could you send us an email with your wp-admin info so we can take a better look at the issue. Thanks!

How do you move commet section up over Author Box, Tags and Related Posts.

And how do you disable Tags and Related Posts in all post ?

Thanks really love the theme :D

Hi there,

if you go to single.php and look on line 299 you’ll see: <?php comments_template( '', true ); ?> take this bit of code and move it up to line 220 :)

Hello! This theme has been a lifesaver for a “newbie” like me. Thank you thank you!

The only thing I can’t seem to modify is the Facebook “Like” button. I really want my readers to be able to “share” with a pop-up comment box, like the other share buttons. Can you help me out?

Ah! Nevermind. Figured it out. :)


I would like to choose different category layouts for various pages. one classic and other grid. how can i enable this?

Hi there,

Unfortunately we don’t have an option for that. So you would need to go to category.php and manully use the condition tag called is_category(‘name-of-category’) to set the layout. If you send us an email we can point you in the right direction.

i sent you a message

Replied :)

How can I make the featured image link to a specific URL (when displayed in a post, not on the homepage)?

I am already using the Default Image Link.

By default, clicking on the feature image just launches a gallery of that image.

Hi there,

I’m not sure that plugin works with the featured image as well. If you send us an email we can try and guide you through another solution.

Hi! Thank you for the great theme!

I’m trying to target a certain category to be able to add the selector .post-meta: {display: none;} to remove the author and date information from the post

I’ve tried adding the line .category-(category slug) .post-meta: {display: none;} but it doesn’t seem to target the right category. How should I proceed?

Hi there,

Do you want to get rid of the meta info on a category page or inside a post page?

Hi, Loving the Hickory theme. One problem. I checked the box to disable author box on posts but author and date are still showing up on posts. Am I doing something wrong? Here is a link to a post: Thanks

Hi there,

That option gets rid of the boxes below the content, but the meta info below the title will still be displayed. You can get rid of it by going to Hickory Options > Custom CSS and add:

.post-header { display:none; }

great theme!

1 issue, though and 2 questions:

1) the grid layout is not working, instead of grid it shows just one small column, second one missing. list is working.

2) what do I have to do to enable sub menus in the footer menu?

3) what exactely does the option “widgetize pages and categories” do?


it really looks messy with the one column in the grid. please advise what I can do.

Hi there,

For some reason you’re missing following css: display:inline-block; on your li items. Please go to Hickory Options > Custom CSS and add:

.content .newsfeed li { display:inline-block; }

ahhh, thank you. now it works!

Awesome theme! Thanks for sharing it with us.

I have two questions so far: 1- How do I put the picture below the title in the post? The thing is that if I get rid of the future image the picture inside the text box in the post doesn’t show up in the home page.

2- How do I add widgets to the category tabs like the ones you have in the live preview, like the social media, suscribe, comments, etc.

Thanks a lot!!

Hi there!

1) There’s actually an option to disable the featured image. When you write/edit a post look down in the post settings. This will only disable the featured image inside your post but keep it on the frontpage etc.

2) Not sure i understand the question. Unfortunately the tabs widget can only display the popular posts, comments and tags.

Oh that was so simple that I feel silly. Thanks a lot for the quick response.

I have one last question thou.

Is there a way to add the photo-viewer you have here: which is the gallery post, I guess. To an actual page?

Thanks again!

Unfortunately we don’t have an option for that :/ Maybe you could take a look at a plugin such as meta slider?

Hi guys,

Is there a way to customize the mobile site? We wish to remove some of the sidebars from showing up on the bottom of our mobile site. Thank you in advance.

Our site is

Also 2 more questions 1. is there a method to get remove footers 2,3 and 4 comepletely and to only have footer 1 at the bottom?

2. How can we add an adsense code to the homepage if its not a widgetized homepage since we can’t use the widget. Which part of the Editor do we need to insert the adsense code in a regular homepage to have a banner add appear at the very bottom but right before the footer?

Thanks :-)

Hi there,

If you send us an email with more info, like which widges you dont want to show on mobile, and where you want the adsense to be shown on the homepage we can help you out. Cheers


I bought your Theme few weeks ago ! congrats, really nice work, love this theme !

However, I have an issue with some pictures that are not correctly loaded on Ipad / mobile and safari

Have a look at my website :

On iPad / mobile / safari, most of the thumbnails / pictures won’t load and web users can only see a white block with the “alt” attribute being displayed.

Do you know what can explain this issue ? I’m not sure I’m running the last 2.0.3 Version of your theme so that might be the reason why it’s happening.

Thanks for your help


Replied to your email!

Thanks a lot guys ! Can you just tell what are these special characters that were responsible for this issue ? Just so that I can stop using them in the future ;) Thanks in advance

Sorry for the wait. It should be these characters:

Hi I have purchased this theme, everytime I stack the sidebar widget with text and hickory ad widgets they always get deleted or when I attempt to update the widget side bar with new content some of the widgets will come up and others wont. I am only embedding shortcodes from youtube and other social media shortcodes- what to do_?

Hi there,

Please send us an email with your site url and wp-admin info so we can take a better look at the issue. Thanks!
