  1. Hi,

    I am using a free HitMag theme for my wordpress.org site. I am facing issue especially while creating a child theme of HitMag. I know how to create a child theme and it worked for other themes except for HitMag. Is there something is different compared to other themes?

  2. Hello Pubudu,

    I bought your theme, and it is very good!

    I have one problem – the function – Customize- Blog Posts – Meta, when I try to remove Author – it doesn’t work.

  3. please can you highlight the noticeable differences between hitmag and hitmag pro version? i need it to take urgent decision please.

  4. I’m evaluating this great theme (testing free version now). But… no matter how hard I try, I CANNOT change the layout order of the sidebar and content using Customize>>Content and Sidebar Alignment. No matter which layout thumbnail I click on and save, ALL my pages just keep displaying content on the left and sidebar on the right. We need it the other way around. Is this a bug? Is there a trick in the CSS or template somewhere to make this work? Thanks!

    1. Hi,

      It is working. Go to edit screen of the page that you need to change the layout. Then check the “Select Layout” meta box which is on the right side of the screen. Priority goes to this option. If you have changed this layout to any layout other than the “default layout” customizer page layout selection will not work.

      Thank You.

  5. Hello,

    I use your theme and i love it, very nice and easy to setup. I have one question i cannot figure out: on a post page, it shows related posts, but i cannot click on them unless it is a embeded video file, and still cannot click on it to go to the post… do you have some idea how to solve this?

    Keep up the good work!
    Kind regards

      1. You are right. On the demo it works. Do you have any idea what could be the problem? I would send you the link on pm to my site to check it out, maybe point me in the right direction…. I am suspecting some link in the db is not working properly but am not sure what…

        1. Hi,

          I have figured it out: i was messing with related-posts.php to change the display and made an error… now i corrected it and it works flawlesly. Thanks again for your efforts.

          Kind regards

  6. Can the size of the boxes on the front page when using grid layout change its dimensions? If so, how? Thanks for this awesome theme…Keep up the good work…

    1. Hi Gino,

      You need to edit css for this. Or I recommend you to hire a developer who know how to edit that.

      Thank You.
