  1. This is an excellent theme that suits my needs, but I am wondering if it’s possible to make changes to the “HitMag: Sidebar Posts”? What I want is to change “Popular” to display “politics” and rather than “comments” displaying “Editorial”
    Is that possible, or will I have to use another block entirely?

    1. Hi Elise,

      I am sorry currently it is not possible. However I will make sure to give that as a Block on our BNM Blocks plugin in really soon.

      Thank you.

  2. Hi,
    Instead of using a widget to display latest posts or posts from a choosen category, is it possible to do this with shortcode?

    1. Hi Duke,

      I am sorry it is not possible to use HitMag widgets as shortcodes currently. However if what you want to do is to add widgets inside a page or post you can use our BNM Blocks plugin instead.

      Thank you.

  3. I try to add block HitMag: Magazine Posts (Style 1), but is not possible. It’s a problem “cannot read proprierties of undefined (reading ‘hasOwnProperty)
    Only style 3 works, and I see the options.

    1. Hi Alessandro,

      Sure, I will help you with this. Could you please send me few more details to support@themezhut.com? Please send me your server’s PHP version, WordPress version and a screenshot of the error.

      Thank you.

    1. Hi,

      You can add a category specifically for the slider and add assign posts to that category. That way you can display specific posts.

      Thank you.

  4. There is a plugin someplace — misplaced it– that does all the above instruction above for us after activating. Where can I find it, and is that safe or recommended? Thank you!

  5. Excellent Theme! Thank you. I have a question:

    When I chosed the language in spanish and put the Widget Popular, Comments and Tags (in this case: “Popular”, “Comentarios” and “Etiquetas”) these tabs name doesn’t enter in the tabs, and the “Etiquetas” Tab skip to the next line, unfortunaly altering the widget shape. How I can fix it? How I can change the titles of this tabs or size? Or disable one of them (e.g. Tags)

    Thank You

    1. Hi Cristian,

      I will give you a CSS to reduce the font size of these tab heading. Please copy and paste the following CSS code in the Additional CSS area of the customizer. ( Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS )

      .hm-tabs-wdt .hm-tab-anchor {
      font-size: 13px;

  6. I have downloaded and customized this theme but when I open any post it shows feature images and posts images please tell me how to solve this. I have given the link to the website.

    1. Hi Rubel,

      Since you don’t want to display the same image twice you can hide the featured image, only on single posts. Please go to Dashboard > Appearance > Customize > Post Options and select the hide option on the “Featured image inside single post” switch.

      Thank you.

      Thank you.

  7. Thank you for an awesome theme.
    I have been editing the Main Sidebar and I have several “add block” objects displayed. On the rendered webpage, these “add block” objects show up as blank space.
    Is there a way to get rid of them so they don’t show up as white space?

    PS. My website isn’t live yet but here is the link to the draft https://bak.vhf.mybluehost.me

    1. Hello Jim,

      If the Add Block objects are empty you need to delete them from the backend widget area in order to remove that blank space.

      Thank you.

  8. Hallo!
    I want only the image in the header area. However behind the picture there is a lot of empty space that doesn’t look nice. Can I remove it?
    Thanks in advance!

    1. Hello Blanka,

      Please copy and paste the following code in the Additional CSS area of the customizer to hide that extra space.

      .header-main-area {
      display: none;

      Thank you.

    Thanks ,

  17. Thanks for this theme 🙂

    Slider stops at the last slide. I know this is not a bug. In the future, can the slider have the option of self-repeating? Sorry for my English.

    Greetings 🙂

  18. Hi is it possible to remove the: “date – by author – leave a comment” in the Hitmag widgets displaying on the magazine frontpage? I have my website in another language than english so it looks very weird. I would appreciate if I could remove/edit it except for displaying .none in css as that ruins SEO.

  19. I keep trying to change the magazine homepage to full width, but it doesn’t change as expected. (The side bar stays on the right) Any reason this might be?

    1. Hi,

      You can use Site Origin Page Builder with “Page Builder” page template to create any layout you like. Just select the “Page Builder” page template instead of “Magazine Homepage” page template for your homepage and create any layout you like. Then add HitMag Magazine Widgets. You can use the Elementor page builder also.

      Thank You.

  20. hello, is there any way to set full image in grid style? I had set 3 columns grid option from customizer. But it don’t show full image when I see a single categories all post.

    1. Hi, I am sorry I cannot understand this. Could you please explain what do you mean by “single categories all post”?

  21. Nice work on Hitmag ✌️

  22. Hello. Great Theme!!

    How can i add a custom entry to the Social Menu e.g. a link to a page inside my site. I’m trying currently but it only shows a rectangle icon (no icon or text).

    Please advise!

    Thank you.

  23. Please Pubudu, How can i make my post not show all so that reader can click next to continue reading?

    1. Hi Josh,

      What is the page that you are talking about? In blog archive it shows a read more button.

      Thank You.

    1. Hi Josh,

      You can add a post to your menu from Appearance > Menus. Normally menu should be used to display categories and pages and other custom links. That does not mean that you cannot add a post to the menu.

      Is this what you have asked?

      Thank You.

  24. Hy please help me how i can add manu in footer area like contact us about us pages please help??

    1. Hi Zani,

      You can use a WordPress default “Menu” widget to display links in footer widget areas.

      Thank You.

    1. Hello Kris,

      To do that you need to manually remove media queries in the style.css file. This may take some time.

      Thank You.

  25. Dear all

    we are using your hitmag theme for a dutch web site. I managed to change the most important text into dutch. However, the date in the top menu bar does not wish to go to dutch even if the wp version we have is in dutch and dutch has been set to standard language. Am I missing an option setting?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    1. Dear Koper,

      Thank you for letting us know about this. We will fix this in the next theme update.

      Thank You.

        1. Few days ago I installed the update. No change in the language of the date in the top bar. Did I miss something or did it escape you attention?


          1. Hi Koper,

            Now the date should display in the format that is selected from Dashboard > Settings > General. If it does not display properly could you please send me a screenshot of your site’s “General Settings > Date format” section? Please send it to support@themezhut.com.

            Thank You.

  26. Hi, i am trying to hide the sidebar on some pages – i have installed the Content Aware Sidebars to allow me to hide the sidebar – because I am now showing a different sidebar that has no widgets added, it should hide the sidebar but it doesn’t – instead there is just whitespace. I think it is something to do with the function is_active_sidebar( ‘target-sidebar’ ) which is different in your theme than the default code.

    Can you help please?

    Thank you in advance

    1. Hi Josephine,

      You can change your post or page layout from the post or page edit screen if you want to change layout uniquely. Go to post/page edit screen and find the “Select Layout” metabox.

      If you want to change your page layout globally please go to Appearance > Customize > Page Options > Content and Sidebar Alignment ( For post layouts use Post Options > Content and Sidebar Alignment )

      I hope this will help you. If not please leave a reply.

      Thank You.

  27. Hey
    Is there any chance I can customize the slider?
    I’d like to set one category for each one of the buttons/icons below the slider, so it could update automatically the specific category slide when I post something new, instead of being latest posts.

    Thanks a lot

    1. Hi,

      Yes. Create a new category specifically for the slider. For example create a category called “Featured”. Then assign posts to that category those you want to display on the slider. Then choose the slider category as “Featured” from the slider settings of the customizer.

      I hope this will help you. If not please leave a reply.

      Thank You.

  28. How do I make my 5 featured posts static (not change)?? Once I enter a 6th post the first post is no longer featured. Thanks!

    1. Hi Albert,

      I am sorry for the late reply. To do that make a category specifically for slider. Name it whatever you want. For example “Featured”. Then assign this category to posts those you want to display in slider. Then choose that “Featured” category for the slider from the slider settings at customizer.

      I hope this will help you.

      Thank You.

    1. Hi Belal,

      I cannot understand your first question. Could you please explain it a little bit?

      Currently you are displaying pages on the menu. You can display categories on the menu. And let people view category wise posts. Go to Appearance > Menus and add categories to your menu.

      Thank You.

    1. Hi Lorraine,

      You need to create a magazine homepage. Please read the documentation to learn how to do that.

      Thank You.

  29. Hi Pubudu,
    I have a problem which is getting me mad… I use HitMag on two differents blogs. On the first one it works perfectly but on the second one i have troubles with the sharing on Facebook and with the mobile version.
    When articles are published on facebook it’s the default image of the blog that appear and not the ‘image à la une’ i don’t understand why (it worked with the previous theme i used and i didn’t change anything on the setting of WP)
    I disabled the Jetpack mobile theme but still, on my mobile the theme doesn’t work. I don’t understand…
    Can you help me?
    Thank you so much.

  30. Hi,

    How do I remove the grading/headline in the slider? I would like it to be like it is in the demo


  31. Hi, first of all thanks a lot for the theme. great job.

    my question: how can i change the_excerpt() from counting words to counting charakters?

    thank you!

  32. Please I’m finding it difficult to display blog posts together with magazine homepage…it only displays the hitmag posts for magazine homepage and post loop widget as well but I can’t seem to see the normal blog posts that have pagination. Help please

    1. Hi Asikwe,

      I am sorry it cannot display blog posts in the static page. Please create a blog posts archive separately.

      Thank You.

    1. Hi Philip,

      You can do it with css. Copy and paste the following CSS code in the Additional CSS area of the customizer.

      .site-branding {
      float: none;
      display: table;
      width: 100%;

      .site-branding-content {
      display: table-cell;
      text-align: center;
      vertical-align: middle;

      .hm-logo {
      float: none;
      display: inline-block;
      vertical-align: top;

      Thank You.

  33. Hi,
    I can’t figure out the way to enable follow-up comment and new post notification options below the comment field on my website while using the HitMag WordPress theme. Could you please help?

  34. Saying more about how I want my site to look: it’s https://go4ward.info/risescitech. What we’d like to do is designate some posts as quick takes — very short — and put them the sidebar, not in the main content area. But nothing happens when I select ‘right sidebar’ as the layout option. Is it because we already use a sidebar widget? Any help would be most appreciated.

  35. Hi Pubudu,
    great theme, thanks!
    With regard to the featured slider: is there a possibility to add multiple category selection (not just picking one or all category) and to enable sticky posts (showing first)? Maybe there is a hook I could work with?
    Thank you so much! moaschtr

  36. How can I remove Powered by WordPress and HitMag? There is no “editor” available in appearances…Please tell me I am using the free version.

    1. You can use custom css to hide that. However in pro version you can do that and add new one easily just from the customizer.

      Thank You.

  37. Hi,
    First of all a massive thanks for this theme. We are trying it out for a charity for refugees in London.
    We are having an issue and the issue is the slider get stopped after the last image.
    Is that a bug or a feature.
    Please help.
    We are using the free version and here is the site http://islingtonrefugeeforum.org/

    Thanks again

  38. Love your theme… getting used to the settings but wanting to change the font, size and position of the header text… is there an easy way to do this?

    Many thanks

  39. I may be on the wrong page, I’m looking for support for the Hit theme. Specifically, the white bar across the home page. I can empty all the widgets out of it, but I need to entirely remove the bar. Can’t find anything in the customize location and I’ve tried to hack at the code but it’s still there. Any way you can help?

    1. Hi Priyal,

      You can do that from Dashboard > Apperance > Customize > Post Options > and switch off “Author details box after the post”.

      Thank You.

  40. Hi, it’s impressive from the time I met your pro theme. Great job!
    Anyway, can this theme able to show share counter?
    Also I would like to show also the author profile. Your assistance will be a great work for me.
    Thank you.

  41. Hi,

    First of all thanks for this clean and good looking Hitmag theme. I have installed your free theme and soon I will go for pro. Is there any plugin to load website fast?


  42. HI,
    I just purchased the PRO version for a reason that I want to dock my google ad which is the last widget at the main side bar while the content length is longer than side bar, I saw this function is presented in your PRO version demo. But why my google ad is still scrolled up together with the content, do I miss any additional settings to achieve this? Thanks.

    1. Dear Leejack,

      To enable sticky sidebar please go to Dashboard > Appearance > Customize > General Settings and Mark “Make Sidebar Sticky” checkbox. We provide dedicated email support for PRO users. Please contact us from https://themezhut.com/contact/.

      Thank You.

  43. HI,
    Awesome theme thank you!
    I can’t find how to control the slides speed. I find the default speed a bit slow.

    Thanks for your help 🙂

    1. Hi Pav,

      I am sorry, currently there is not a widget for that. However it is a good idea. I think there may be plugins for that.

      Thank You.

  44. Hi, I would like to remove the author information from the featured slider, is there a setting for this or any other way to remove that information?


      1. Hello Valentina,

        Please copy and paste the following CSS code in the Additional CSS area of the customizer to hide the author information from the slider.

        .slide-entry-meta .byline {
        display: none;

        .slide-entry-meta .meta-sep:nth-child(2) {
        display: none;

        Thank You.

    1. Hi Yev,

      It seems you have activated the Jetpack’s mobile theme on your site. Go to Jetpack > Settings and search for “Mobile Theme”. Please switch it off.

      Thank You.

  45. Hello, Please i cant seem to find the button for uploading my own custom logo…. is this option removed in the free edition of this theme?

    1. Hello Harrison,

      No it is not removed from free version. Please go to Appearance > Customize > Site Identity and set your logo. However if your WordPress version is below 4.5 logo option will not support.

      Thank You.

    1. Hi Yev,

      As mentioned in the documentation please install the “Regenerate Thumbnail” plugin and run it once to resize all the images at once.

      Thank You.

    1. Hi Sina,

      To show images on the slider you need to set featured images for the posts those are shown in the slider.

      Thank You.

  46. Hello, Great theme. Looking to see if i can put social media icons/links on the opposite side of the header where the date is currently displayed? Great to add FB, Instagram and Twitter



    1. Dear Cheryle,

      Since Gravatar is the WordPress’s by default Avatar service, we have added support for that. However I found a plugin called WP User Avatar which gives you the ability use your site’s media library images to use as Avatar. Could you please try this plugin? Here is it -https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-user-avatar/

      Thank You.

    1. Hi Tracy,

      I am sorry for the late reply. Yes of course you can display latest 5 posts in the slider instead of posts from a category. Go to Dashboard > Appearance > Customize > Slider Settings. Then select “–Show All Posts–” in the select dropdown which is titled under “Select the category for slider posts”.

      Thank You.

        1. Hi Belal,

          What is the option you are looking for? There are only two options in the slider settings. And the slider displays only on the “Magazine Homepage”. So you need to create a magazine homepage first. There are many options in the PRO version.

          Thank You.

    1. Hi Revathi,

      It cannot display images in the WordPress default recent posts widget. Please use the Sidebar Posts widget that comes with HitMag theme. You can use it to display recent posts with images.


        1. Hi Yev,

          They are displayed by the Jetpack plugin. Go to Dashboard > Jetpack > Settings and turn off the Related Posts Module.

          Thank You.

  47. Hi,

    I can’t seem to get rid of the white space area in the header. This is usually the area where the site name and tagline go, but I want to hide them so that I can just use my own logo image. How can I get rid of the white bar because it makes the alignment off?



    1. Hi Carlos,

      Please copy and paste the following css code in the Additional CSS area of the customizer to remove that white space.

      .header-main-area {
      display: none;

      I hope this will help you.


  48. Hi,

    I have been using the free version of this website to test it out, and I really like it. It is well designed and user friendly. On the free version, I believe that you can only use the magazine template on the home page. Is it possible to have magazine templates with different content in each on different pages in the paid for version?

    Thank you

  49. I really like this theme! But I cannot find where I can access the header.php file so that I can put Google console and Google analytics codes in there. Can you point me in a good direction?

  50. Hi,
    First thanks for the amazing theme!

    I just need to know if this theme supports (RTL) option, also if can be used with the polylang & WPML plugins, in case to use it for several languages.

    thanks again.

  51. Hello, is there a way to control the “related posts”? (How many, relate them using Categories and/or Tags and/or more complex semantic rules…)

    I feel like it would be a great addition… assuming these options are not somewhere already!

    1. Hi Valerio,

      In HitMag Pro version there is an option to select related posts based on category or tag.

      Thank You.

      1. Any chance on an a future update we will be able to change the number of related posts that are shown? I’d like to be able to show two rows of three related posts, ideally.

      2. Ive just purchased the Pro version given that it supposedly has this feature, but it doesnt. It forces you to manually select a category which completely defeats the purpose of showing “related posts”?????

        Could you please explain how the related posts change dynamically inline with the current post being viewed, or are they just “fixed” per category??

        1. Dear John,

          Yes, HitMag Pro displays related posts based on the current viewing post’s category or tags.

          We cannot go beyond that in a theme because those kinds of complex tasks like analyzing the all the posts and displaying related posts must do with a plugin. Because theme’s task is just to provide a graphical interface.

          So if you want to display related posts in an advanced way I highly recommend to use Jetpack plugin’s related posts module. Because it does all the analysis, processing, and serving from their cloud, so there is no additional load on your server.

          Thank You.

          1. Pubudu, Id prefer not to have to use another plugin for this. Related posts work perfectly and show under the post, but it would be fantastic to be able to show them in the sidebar.

      1. Blog, on the other hand is not a category. In blog WordPress displays all the posts those belong to all the categories or uncategorized posts. You can create a page to and assign it to display blog posts. Please read the documentation ( Magazine Homepage > Adding a blog post page when magazine homepage is activated ) to learn how to do that.

    1. Hi Mike,

      You don’t have to create a page to display all the posts belong to a particular category. Only you have to do is create a category from Dashboard > Posts > Categories > Add New. Then assign posts to that category from posts. That category archive page will be created automatically for you. You can find the link to that category archive page from Dashboard > Appearance > Menus. There is a toggled menu in the left side of the Menus page. Find the “Categories” section from that toggled menu and mark and add the category to the menu. It will link to the particular category archive.

      Thank You.

  52. Hi Pubudu,

    Can I use the Pro Hit Mag theme on more that one site without have to buy the theme every wp website?

    I have several different blogs … and Pro Hit Mag will work great with all of them. I have one website
    under development right now, and I would like to consider using Pro HitMag.

    Thank you.

    1. Hi Mitch,

      If all the domains belong to you, you can use one HitMag Pro theme for all of your sites without any problem.

      Thank You.
