Frequently Asked Questions
Got questions? Maybe we have answers.
I am unsure if and how this theme has been updated in the past (no changelog found anywhere), meaning I am a little nervous about the coming bigger changes to the_loop() and others breaking the site or, at the least, not being taken advantage of.
The amount of whitespace in medium-smaller breakpoints and in general is somewhat overkill. Especially embedded pictures should not be even smaller than paragraph text, taking advantage of Gutenberg’s “wide” would fix so many things but, again, I am not even sure the theme has seen much work since Gutenberg.
Customizability could be better. Independent font selections, for example, as well as allowing us to use locally saved Google and other fonts to not piss off the perpetually annoyed GDPR/DSGVO disciples of doom, would be amazing.
Yes, all this can be done in a child theme, but at this point I am not sure I want to stick that much time into a child theme without any clear indication if this theme is still around in, say, a year.
I was looking for a well-designed masonry-style WP theme. The demo website of the Hive theme is extremely beautiful and elegant, which really caught my attention. Though actually, the blog I want to use it for will be much more conceptual, rough, imperfect and open-ended, so I needed to “un-beautify” the theme. Due to another project, I didn’t have any time to work on it lately, but it’s high up on my list.
One downside: When I changed the background colour from white to something darker, I noticed a bug in the theme and informed the Pixelgrade team. Andrei provided some CSS code as a workaround in no time, which was great. However, the theme itself hasn’t been updated, so I guess the bug is still there. I hope that a bug-free version will be circulated shortly.
I would recommend Pixelgrade, especially for the forthcoming responsiveness I have experienced.
Spend some time online to look for a new theme to pepp up my old blog. Fell in love with “Hive”. Took a lot of time to think about it and then .. just did it! I managed quite allright. Had one problem, but the support solved it superfast. Seems to have been no biggy for them. Very friendly, too! Made the entire experience even better.
I love the design. This is high quality for sure, worth every cent of it.
Andrei was quick and efficient in solving my issue. I couldn’t figure out why a photo wasn’t showing properly and he was able to fix it and show me how to do the same thing with the rest of the posts.
I am new to WordPress and trying to set up my own blog. Themes from Prixelgrade look really good and their Support team makes a good job 👍 All good so far but I’ll definitely write another review when have more experience with it
I am absolutely delighted and grateful by Pixegrade’s customer service. The response is immediate, and the team has always tried to answer my questions and solve my problem (without giving up until it was in order). In addition to offering great themes, they also offer seamless support.
You are too kind, Frédéric!🙈 Always great to hear this feedback from our customers. Cheers!
I bought Hive because it was the best-looking blog I found that was in alignment with my sense of style. I don’t see any downsides. I am able to do with it exactly what I want.
To a friend I would say that Hive incorporates the best retro feel with modern tech capability.
One point of dissatisfaction is I feel limited with how to create title styling. It is complicated to have to use quotes or colons or all caps to effect bold or italics, although, after 200 blog posts, I’m getting the hang of it.
Thanks for your review, David.
I bought hive theme because I liked the easy look. I am still struggling to enhance site speed, but pixelgrade stuff is super supportive and helpful to speed the site up. Great experience 🙂
Thank you so much for your time and review, Lars.
First of all, two thumbs up for your support team ! Reactive, helpful, efficient and competent ! It’s a real pleasure to work with Pixelgrade.
Then, the Hive design is really great and it’s just perfect to be used as a blog !
On the other hand, we would need some more features today to fit our needs. As I’ve also been working with Divi on many other websites for several years now, the lack of freedom in building a page with Hive makes it a second choice to fulfil our needs that go beyond “just blogging”.
Anyway, you make a great job ! 🙂
Hey, Nathalie! Thank you for your review. I appreciate you took your time to share your experience with others. We are honored you have chosen us. Thank you for that! 🤗
I bought the product because of the design. I was looking for a theme for copywriters, copywriters, journalists for a very long time. Clean and with the effect on the text. This was the only theme for wordpress I found. My request was answered by Andrei ser quickly, professionally and friendly. I was amazed that Andrei can put himself in the customer’s shoes and offer step-by-step instructions on how to solve the problem. Or support via remote. Excellent! Trustworthy! If I’m looking for a theme again, I’ll look at Pixelgrade first. Best Manuela.
Thank you, Manuela, for trusting our work and for these lovely words. Customers like you keep our wheels spinning. 🤗
