Is the $40 Licence an annual cost or a one-off?


And is the theme AJAX-powered?

Hi there,

The $40 license is a one time purchase. No annual costs or anything.

No we’re not using AJAX in Hickory, at least not on the frontend

Cheers :)

Hi There Is there a way to add a feedly social icon into the header and share box?


Hi Shussey,

Unfortunately it doesn’t seem like fontawesome (which is where we get the social icons from) are supporting feedly. So you would have to create an icon for feedly yourself. Or maybe you could find one, on a site like

Hi! No already have the icon – feedly supply them to you! How would I go about adding it in to the header and sharebox?

For the header go to inc/header/innerheader.php and on line 33 add:

<a href=""><img src="http://link-to-your-feedly-icon" /></a>

For the sharebox go to single.php and on line 261 you can add:

<span class="share-item"> ...your feedly share code here ... </span>

If you need help implement this then go to our support site and open a new ticket :)

Hi Solo Pine,

I just wanted to let you know how much I like the Hickory theme. This is my first experience with purchasing a theme (I have customized a few free themes in the past) and I really appreciate the design and efficiency of your work. I hope you like what I’ve done with it.

If you have any thoughts or recommendations on reliable hosting companies here in the US I’d love to hear your input. My hosting provider (a shared server) has been terrible with Wordpress sites and I need to move.

Thanks again and I look forward to your future work!

Hi RobPRocks,

Thank you so much for the kind words! And great work on your site

We personally use Media Temple and really like them. I believe they’re based in LA. I’ve also heard a lot of good things about :)


Hi, I have 2 questions. 1. I want to translate ’’YOU MIGHT ALSO LIKE’’ but I can’t find the code in the editor. 2. In the mobile version the header logo is not centered, its on the right side. How can I fix that?

Thank you

Could you try adding the following to your hickory options > custom css:

@media only screen and (max-width: 767px) { #header.layout3 .container { width:280px; } }
Thanks it works perfect! I just discovered on last thing that I would like to fix. Its again on the mobile version. I don’t know how to describe it in proper english so I made a quick video showing the problem.

Thank you!

Hi macsterr, thanks for the video! Unfortunately I don’t have an iPhone to test on, but could you send us a ticket at so you could help me test out some things. Thank you

Hey SoloPine team! Still loving Hickory.

Wanted to know how I can remove the hyperlink from ALL featured images.

For reference, when I click the featured image from a ‘post’, it brings up a lightbox of the image as if it was a gallery.

Here’s a screenshot for reference:

Hi there,

If you go to single.php and look on line 116 you should see:

<a href="<?php echo $url; ?>" class="post-gallery"><?php the_post_thumbnail(); ?></a>

Now just remove the a tag around the image code, like so:

<?php the_post_thumbnail(); ?>


Hey, great theme.

Could it be possible to have the option to have a full width video on a post, as well as a review?

If I choose video the review goes away, and vise versa.

It’s possible but we would need to do a bit of customization. If you open up a new ticket at we can help you out!

Ticksy doesn’t let me sign up for some reason, when I try to register it says

“Sorry, we don’t have that email address in our system.”

also, can you have the review appear as rich snippets on google? I want to add rich snippets for my reviews however when i do that It has the same info twice on the page, and that looks bad. And I know that google doesn’t want you to hide the structured data.

Hi again,

Instead could you please send us an email via the contact form on our profile page.

Also we’re aware of the rich snippet issue and will fix it for the next update.


Dear SoloPine,

After the latest update of wordpress the image path of my content is broken.

Funny thing is, all images from before the installing of this theme are still working correctly. But all images from Februari 2014 until now are broken. The images are still accessible through ftp wp-content/uploads/2014/02 for instance has all the files there.

Do you have any clue what this could be?

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards, Camiel

Hi Camiel, Glad you got the issue sorted :)

Thanks once again for all your efforts. Will be buying one of your other templates for another project soon. The support you’re offering is simply superb.

Thank you so much for the kind words!

Hello, Thanks for the nice theme. I have a problem the featured items and the WPML plugin. I asked their help desk and they came back with this to me.

“So the problem as I see is that your theme does not load the translated posts correctly when switching languages. It keeps displaying the English version of the posts in the Featured area.

You need to refer to this documentation as it would help in this case,

Your theme is not in our compatibility list “”, so sending this information to the theme author would be a good deal as they know exactly how their theme works.

The documentation I mentioned above will help anyone willing to edit the theme files.”

Is there a possibilty that this can be fixed as it is really inconvenient. The theme has no problem with translating the posts. It is just a problem with the 3 featured items that are shown at the top of the page.

Hope to hear from you.

Hi there,

Yes the theme has not been tested with WPML. When you look at themes here on Themeforest you can check the item page and see whether it’s compatible or not :)

However if you open a ticket at we can try and help you out

I knew that, but I had the hope that the theme would be updated in the future and this item would be added. WPML is the perfect plugin for multi lingual website and their helpdesk is amazing. So I can really recommend them also they really help theme developpers to make their plugin work. I would be great for other buyers that your theme could work together with WPML. I will open a ticket and hopefully we can work it out.

Hi guys, love the theme so far.

I was wondering if there was any way to customize the color of the review box from black to another color?

Let me know where this is in the CSS.


That’s odd the first code should have taken care of the whole background! Do you mind sending me a url to your site so I can check it via the Inspection tool. Thanks!

I’ve got a maintenance page on my site right now. Can you still do it?

Many thanks!

Unfortunately I can’t check it out. You can go to and open a new ticket with your wp-admin info included

hey now 43 usd? why? hummmmm

Ok :) I have one question. I had translated the and default.po (reuploaded to the site), but not reflected yet on the site, how could I activate the language? Thanks :D

Make sure you rename the file to whatever language you’re using, fx. es_ES if you’re translating to Spanish, and save it in the lang folder.

Last step is going to wp-config.php and change define(‘WPLANG’, ’’); to define(‘WPLANG’, ‘es_ES’);

Thank You Very Much! :P

Hi there – I am having some problems with one specific Vimeo video where the theme keeps saying the Key is invalid. I had to place the embed code within the actual body in the end. Is there any reason why this particular video won’t embed using just the key/id where others on the site works fine?

Hi there,

Could you open a new ticket at and include your wp-admin info so we can take a better look at this. Thanks!

Hi, I’m working on a blog in polish. Could you please let me know, how can I change names of widgets and categories like search me (and text inside the search box), Latest New, Popular + Comments + Tags, Latest in etc. Is there a multilanguage support for the main labels? Thanks Raf

Hi Raf,

The theme is translation ready and we have included the po file in the lang folder inside hickory :)

Thanks a lot for the great news !!! :)

Hello, great theme! one question, in widgetize homepage, when I add Lastest posts as a wiget, can it shows number of pages…like if it show 6 latest posts, that undetneat shows pages to go through (1,2,3…). Thats how it shows when its Latest posts homepage only.


Hi there,

Unfortunately the widgets are not able to have pagination. You’ll need to use the list or grid layout instead. Also in the future be sure to use the account you bought the theme on to post comments, otherwise we can’t verify your purchase.


THank you! and I will do that in the future.

I’m interested in this theme but want to know where support lives (country) and what response time is. Nice theme!

Hi Lara,

We’re from Washington, USA and try to respond to all our customers within 24 hours.


One more question. Is it possible to make the header sticky?

Lara Kroeker

Hi Lara,

Yes we do have an option for sticky header :)

LOVE the Hickory layout! Is it possible for the homepage with the three grid images at top to be a slider?


Thank you! Yes you can go to Hickory Options > Homepage Options > change featured area layout to slider :)

Bought the theme. Is it possible to import sample content (XML File) and a settings file (.json). Also is there a support forum or do we post here?

I just set it up and am having a few issues that can probably easily be worked out.

Yes you can go to and open a new ticket. Then we can send you the xml file and help you with any issues you may have.

Hi I’ve just tried to install the theme on wordpress, but it says it cannot be uploaded as there is no style.css file?

Hi there,

This happens when you upload the wrong file. Make sure you unzip the folder you downloaded from Themeforest, inside you’ll find a zip folder called—this is the one you need to upload. Cheers

Please help me!!

Question about 2 things.

1. I want to remove the tags at the end of each post. 2. Also I want the related post to configure by ‘tags’ and not categories.

I’m brand new to CSS so I’m having tons of trouble.

Hi there,

If you open a new ticket at we can help you out with this :)

Done. How long does it take to respond?

Replied to your ticket :)
