Ever since I first installed the Hemingway theme on my wordpress blog, I have been a big fan of it. I love tinkering with it and every now and then I keep adding something new or changing something here or there in the theme. I have finally decided to make my modifications available to others for download as well.

So, I introduce HemingwayEx, a simple extension of Hemingway theme for WordPress blogs. I have tried to keep the original essence of the Hemingway theme and added some new features and fixed some small issues. This theme comes with an options page and is widgetized.

HemingwayEx 1.9.1 has been tested with WP 3.1.4.


Here are some of the main features of HemingwayEx:

  • Widgetized: This theme is best used with Widgets. Out-of-box, it works only with widgets. This version removes the support for Hemingway Blocks. To have the option of using Hemingway Blocks instead of widgets, please stick with v1.1. By setting an option in v1.1, you can select whether you want to use the original blocks system of Hemingway themes or use widget enabled sidebars.
  • WP 3.0 Menus: Out-of-box support for WP 3.0 Menus. Also, has a fallback mechanism in case you haven’t defined any menus or you aren’t using WP 3.0 yet.
  • Options Page: You can go to Presentation -> HemingwayEx Options and set various options that give you more control over how the theme works for you.
  • Font Size: I have had some people complain about the small size of the theme. Though I like it and I have kept it same, I have provided a simple javascript tool that can be used to increase/decrease the font size of the theme. It is located just below the search form.
  • User Styles: The theme allows user to easily modify the theme’s CSS to their liking. It also comes packaged with a few CSS themes.
  • Comments: IMHO, comments are handled in a very nice manner. I love the comment numbering and you can have them displayed in ascending / descending order. Also, support has been added for WordPress Gravatar API.
  • Updates Notification: You will get automatic update notification in HemingwayEx Options page when a new update is out.
  • Dynamic Slidebar: Just like the Hemingway Bottombar, I have added a HemingwayEx Slidebar that gets displayed when the user clicks on an ‘Open Navigation’ button.
  • XHTML validated
  • Post and Page Navigation: The single post pages display links to previous/next posts. Similarly, the homepage can be paginated.
  • Out-of-box support for some plugins

HemingwayEx HemingwayEx

Latest version: 1.9.1

I have tested the latest version of this theme with WordPress 3.1.4. I used Firefox (version 2x, 3x on Ubuntu/Windows/Mac OS X), IE (5/6/7 on Windows), Safari (Mac OS X) and Opera (Windows). It seems to be working fine.


You can see latest version of HemingwayEx in action here.

Release Notes

Informal list of changes is maintained in a README file.


Download HemingwayEx v1.9.1.


Installation is very simple. Just download the zip file and upload the ‘hemingwayEx’ folder to themes folder in your WordPress installation. Goto the Admin Menu -> Presentation -> Themes and select the theme.

Once installed, you can go into Presentation -> HemingwayEx Options and customize the theme further to your liking.


If you are upgrading, you will need to reset/uninstall the previous version of HemingwayEx first. If you don’t you might find the display mixed up. Here are the steps you should follow:

  1. Goto HemingwayEx Options page and note down you settings.
  2. Now upload the new files for HemingwayEx theme.
  3. Click reset button at the bottom of the HemingwayEx options page.
  4. Refresh the HemingwayEx Options page and set the options to what they were before. Also, set more options if new settings have been made available.


If you liked HemingwayEx and have found it helpful, consider supporting it. If nothing else, how about buying me a beer/coffee? 🙂



Please note that even after spending quite some time on this theme, I have little experience with PHP. I mostly play around with it and learn as I code. I have been using this theme on my site for sometime now and I have not had any problems, but if some issue does come up, please don’t hold me responsible. I would like to know about the bugs that could be fixed and some other features that could be added, and I would work on it, time permitting.

There were a couple of bugs that I came to know about 30 mins back. I have fixed them.

One bug wasn’t displaying the About Entry section properly in IE and the other was overwriting data that it shouldn’t have.

If you downloaded the zip, you can get the new files and update style.css, single.php and functions.php.

Awesome update, Nalin!

The only bug I’ve run into thus far is if you change the excerpt length to anything other than 75, the widgets don’t work. The only way to get them back is to do a reset/uninstall.

In IE6, when you click on open navigation, nothing shows up, however if you change the font size while it is opened everything will then appear.

vomitgod, Thanks for brining that up. I have fixed the issue and uploaded the new zip. Things will work fine now. I have made changes to functions.php.

Jeremy, I checked with IE6 and didn’t see that issue.

Folks, Thanks for the feedback, but I would appreciate it if you could use next time.

p.s. I am beginning to wonder if I shouldn’t have removed the <i>beta</i> tag. 🙂

Nalin – thanks again for all your hard work! I can confirm that the widget issue appears to be rectified by using the new functions.php file.

See you in the forums! 🙂

Many Thanks to your HemingwayEx. I love it very much.I’m a chinese student and studying CSS.
The Original CSS setting is beautiful. But cannot use in the other code ,simply like: traditional or simplified chinese.
My MAMA and my boyfriend hate the text in the blog was shown very much. This make me unhappy. But I didn’t know how to change the text form on the CSS.
BTW: There is one problem when using Safari to view the website. The comments form and the “Add comment” button is superposed.
Many Thanks.

And there is one more question.Using IE 7 to view the blog.
There is a question on the navigation bar. It’s cannot show the sidebar!

I just wanted to say thank you for making this theme. The original Hemingway was nice to start but didn’t give you much room to expand it. This version you have created has just about everything I wanted in this theme. Thank you once again, now maybe I can finish building my site, rather than trying to rig a theme.

Hi, I am not able to get Twitter on the sidebar. Had already installed the plugin for twitter but could not get it to work on your theme. Any advise? Thanks!

Hey Nalin,

If you want the top navigation bar to show up correctly in IE, then you can add the following to the CSS file:

#navigation ul li a {

Currently, the highlighted item just displays as black & white in IE. This is because the transparency doesn’t have any affect unless you apply some positioning CSS to the element.

If anyone else is interested, I also made a post on how you can get the paging links to work on your homepage (located here).

Thanks a lot Nalin for this update, this makes HemingwayEx just the perfect theme I wanted ! I was looking for a few month for different versions of Hemingway working nicely with widgets, seems like you did the best around here 🙂

I’m modifying it a bit now, trying to get a not-so-black theme, near the Hemingway4U look (but not green…). I’ve themed EventCalendar and Now Reading to match the current HemingwayEx colors, if somebody is interested.

moggy> Thanks a lot again for the Paging links, this is exactly what Hemingway was missing in my opinion : a simple way to navigate around posts…

I install this theme and i have a problem i see this error,

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_ELSE in C:\wamp\www\wordpress-2.2.1\wordpress\wp-content\themes\hemingwayEx\functions.php on line 815

Can somebody help me?

Sorry for my english

I love this theme! I do have a question: when I click ‘Open Navigation’, the underlying navigation menu at the top appears only briefly, then vanishes and I’m left looking at a black space. Any ideas of why this is happening?


Just saw the reply to the ‘Open Navigation’ issue, above. I downloaded the theme today, so assume that problem is now gone……?

Thanks again – this is an awesome theme – best I’ve seen!

Hmmm…..hope a solution comes along soon… really is an awesome design!

Other question: when in WordPress editor, I’m unable to see the Bottom Right Sidebar box where I can drag a widget. I tried changing the screen resolution which allowed me to get to the Bottom Middle box, but still can’t get over the Bottom Right. Any suggestions?


Great theme! Question, with widgets enabled I can only drop widgets into the slidebar 1-3, and after many attempts I was able to drop widgets into #4 bottom, but I can’t drop them into 5 and 6, which leaves that default text that reads “you shouldn’t be seeing this”. Any suggestions?

Yay, new update! 🙂 I’ll have to see if I can get some time to go through the updates and such. Is it possible to include a changelog or something at some point if possible please?
The forum looks spiffy by the way!

I know what you mean, brokencode! 🙂 I keep thinking I should change my site design (have been using HemingwayEx for months now!) because, well… one is supposed to… but everytime I search for some new theme, there’s always something missing (HemingwayEx is my gold standard) and I end up realising (again) how much HemingwayEx has to offer!

Hi Nalin, excellent work on HemingwayEX, I really love it. I found a bug when using a search, if you place Asides or About Page block in Bottombar, on Search result pages Asides Block will return full list with complete posts, and About Page block will display full posts of search results ….

If anyone wants to use jQuery instead of for the top slidebar, then you can replace the contents of slide.js with the following:

(I’m using jQuery’s noConflict option here just to make sure there’s no conflict if you are still using prototype for anything)

$(this).fadeOut(500, function(){
$(this).fadeOut(500, function(){

Then you can also remove the references to prototype.js, effects.js, and behavior.js from header.php. Finally, go and download jQuery, upload it, and add a reference to it in header.php

Hi Nalin,
thanks for your template, for me is very nice (for my type of website).. I’m an Italian computer programmer … and actually I use version 0.95 beta, modify for italian language.
I will upgrade to new version soon as possible, with italian translation …

My comments are showing up in every single one of the posts and pages, not just on the post they were left on. It is theme specific to HemingwayEx. Any ideas? Tried to follow the code to see what was happening, but can’t find it.

Hi Guys,

Thanks a lot for appreciating and liking this theme. I have been away from this site for a long time now and I think that is going to be the case for the near future as well…

I will be coming out with a small update for the theme though, so please come back and check in a few weeks.


Hi Nalin/
Thanks for the update. Sorry to hear that you will be extremely busy with other things, but best of luck! 🙂 Will this update allow Hemingway-Ex to work with 2.3?

hi people,
this is a great themes, the best!!! but i have many problems after the installation in my word press 2.0
a first problem concern in java script for open slide bar and therefore open the hide menu…. in my site doesn’t work and i don’t know why!!!!
the problem can be visualized in my url

thank’s for your support

Nalin, I found another HemingwayEX bug regarding Google Webmaster Tools. If you submit your website to Google and track it through Webmaster tools, you will get 404 for every single page you have on your website. Thing causing this is Text Size tool (just under the search bar), which points to index.php which doesnt exist for every single post. I managed to fix this by manually changing the link (in theme’s header.php) to # instead of index.php, but it would be nice if this issue is fixed for next ver. of HemingwayEX….

thanks for such a cool theme – it totally fits my new project.
all the best


Greta work. I justtrie dto use the Thickbox plugin with HemingwayEX (1.0) and it works great, EXCEPT…that Thickbox breaks the navigation slider feature. Is it a Scriptalicious conflict maybe?

Anyideas how to fix?

Thanks again!

I recently upgraded from .95 beta to 1.0 – now the Navigation slider/pane won’t work. I followed the instructions above w/ the reset, but the navigation panel stopped working in both IE and Firefox. I removed 1.0 and tried to reload .95 and the same issue exists. I’m bummed because I love this theme!!! I hope there’s a fix for my issue.

hi, i just donwloaded the theme ytd and realise that “In IE6, when you click on open navigation, nothing shows up, however if you change the font size while it is opened everything will then appear” issue is still there.

But all seems fine on firefox.

Any solutions to that?


just found out that the links on the bottom right works well on firefox but not on ie6.

Can this be fix?


Beautiful theme I appreciate your work. I would like to know is there any way to add custom blocks in bottom bar or in open navigation bar, same as you have added “Links” and “Subscribe” blocks to your bottom bar?

When is the 2.3 wordpress release gonna come out? this theme rocks but the compatability issue.

I just want to commend you on such a great them! I really love it. The customizable bottom bar and being able to show or hide the naviagation bars is just really cool. It was also incredibly simple to insert my own logo. Thanks!

@Satish: Yes, you can make your own custom blocks. Nalin has included enough ‘sample’ default blocks in /wp-content/themes/hemingwayEx/blocks/ for you to build up your own custom block. I’ve used it for WP-Polls by Lesterchan.

Hi. I like this theme better than Hemigway itself, which is great to look at first time but then it horribly limiting. It must have taken you a LOT of tinkering to get where you are!

My questions: when will your theme work with WP 2.3?

Please CC me by email if you respond to this. Thanks.

There’s a significant difference in the way these themes appear between Internet Explorer, Safari and Firefox (mac).

Basically it looks much better in Safari and Firefox.

It has to do with the tabbed navigation shading at the top. I’ve attached a pic in the forums to illustrate.

Hey mate, Love you template!!

You know how your template is TWO TONED, you have the upper bit where all the texts sits and the bottom where the widget sits.

My Question is for the template where all the TEXT sits, which is the top, what is the HEX Colour code for the top part of ur theme? the background i mean for the top colour? trying to put adsense and having problems finding out what hex code is your theme colour.

Thank You

@Arvin: I am running the latest WordPress (2.3.3?) and aside from the fact the template needs few tweaks (e.g. the tags page/code) and such, I think it works fine. I did start using HemingwayEx from the 0.96 version though, so am not sure if 1.0 has changed that significantly.

Hi Nalin, I’ve loved your work. I’ve use your template for over than a year now. Is there any possibilities for me to shows more that 2 posts on the main index, in two different pages-column?

Hi Nalin, man i’ve installed your theme and is awesome, simple and crystal clear … i love it ! but i have a big problem, i’ve tested on your site and seem here is work just great but on mine has a bug. I’m talking about Navigation Pane, when i click “Open Navigation” and i hold the mouse on place or is not passing above navigation zone that is not visible, if i move mouse over the zone everything is back. Any ideea ?
Take a look please

Thanks !

How do I manage the page or assign a new page to the HOME menu item which was generated by the H-Ex theme?
HOME does not show as a parent page in the dropdown when creating a new Page, nor does it show on Pages in Manage. If I create a new Parent Page named HOME it is just added as a another item to the top menu.
Sorry, I have just started experimenting with WP…
Thanks for a great template!

Question: I’ve adopted HemingwayEx as my theme but now there is no admin link to get into my dashboard. How do I resolve this? Thanks.

As a fan of Hemingway I will surely have a look at your work and probably will come back for a beer or two 😉 once I’ll find time to check it out.
Cheers, Ingo

I modified the code so only one post shows on the main page, but does anyone know how I can extend the width of the one post on the main page? I don’t like how it is all on the left side. Thanks for help in advance!

Why I can not open navigation when I was seeing a full text of a post?how can I fix it.

OOOH! 😀 An update! It makes me want to upgrade my Hemingway-Ex theme as well. I’ll have to make a list of the changes I’ve made though. Really glad you’ve decided to support ‘the Related Posts plugin’ 🙂

p/s: I would certainly like to try and localise it from the end of June (when exams finish) ^^

Hi Nalin
Thanks for your wonderful theme. I’m using HemingwayEx on my site and would like to incude ‘previous’ and ‘next’ post navigation on the home page. Could you please give me some advice on how to do that?

I’ve noticed that IE7 doesn’t like it when you use HemingwayEXin conjunction with Twitter Tools. The issue is that the sliding action for the Navigation will no longer work correctly, throwing a Javascript error for the openSlidebar or closeSlidebar functions.

Researching this a little further I found that Twitter tools relies on “/wp-includes/js/prototype.js?ver=1.6” which it inserts in the through the wp_head(); hook. There are probably other Plugins that rely on this same file.

Is there a particular reason for this theme not to use the prototype file provided by WordPress? If not then would it be possible to amend the template so this file is called instead?

Like the theme, very neat and clean, with a bit more width in the layout. I find the default and most derived from it are far too thin.

Anyway, one question. Is it possible to get avatars, or ‘Gravitars’ working in the comments? I see them under my WordPress admin pages when viewing comments, but not in the comments in the theme?

Very simple&nice theme! I will translate it into Chinese and use it. Thx. When I finish the translation could I give you the .mo file and would you pack it into the next version?

First of all thanks a lot for this cool theme! It seems version 1.1 doesn’t work on WP 2.6? When I tried it, the bottom sidebar area did not appear at all, neither did the “Open Navigation” tab on top. On the other hand, hemingwayex-095-beta doesn’t have this problem on 2.6.

Hi Nalin

I am using HemingwayEx 1.0
Your theme is just wonderful. But I am facing an issue. Comments are not coming in full on the pages if the number of lines are more than 3. It is simply dropping the content after 3 lines.

My installation is very stable, and I have tweaked something according to my needs. I do not want to re install the package. Can you please guide me, how to fix this particular issue?

Thanks a lot.

Hi Nalin,
Great theme – haven’t looked into the css yet – I’d like to customise the theme and add a nav bar on the right. Do you provide any styles for this?

Hi, I’ve identified a small bug in the Search Results page (search.php). Whenever one searches the results should return a very nice line saying:
“You searched for [search.terms] at [].”
What happens however is that the name of the blog gets put all the way in the front so you end up with:
“[]You searched for [search.terms] at .”

It looks like line 39 in search.php needs some amending.

There is an error with the results returned by search.php when only one result is returned. This skews the nice phrase that it returns to “There were one result found.”. Please consider amending lines 42 through 45 accordingly to fix the logic.

Hello everyone,

Thanks a lot for all the comments and questions. I have just now released an updated version of HemingwayEx. To read about it, please see here.

hey, there is a littl—É bag with “wp-smiley” – all smiles are rounded by the white line. To fix it just add this code to css:
img.wp-smiley {
padding: 0px !important;
border: 0px !important;
background: #0C0C0C !important;
*#0C0C0C – your background color
**sorry 4 my eng)

i found this problem: position of image in post can not be shown properly as we manage. then i add this in the end of style css:

margin:0 0.5em 0.5em 0;
margin:0 0 0.5em 0.5em;
div.aligncenter {
display: block;
margin-left: auto;
margin-right: auto;

then put also this caption

.wp-caption {
border: 1px solid #ddd;
text-align: center;
background-color: #f3f3f3;
padding-top: 4px;
margin: 10px;
/* optional rounded corners for browsers that support it */
-moz-border-radius: 3px;
-khtml-border-radius: 3px;
-webkit-border-radius: 3px;
border-radius: 3px;
.wp-caption img {
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
border: 0 none;
.wp-caption p.wp-caption-text {
font-size: 11px;
line-height: 17px;
padding: 0 4px 5px;
margin: 0;

thats alkl and it works

The theme is sleek and professional one. I have used it on my blog

Well there were some minor issue if you can incorporate them

1. XHTML validation : The related post plugin renders the Single post template invalid XHTML as the bar on left hand uses tags and related posts creates

I have used the following piece of code inside the single.php to fix this

$relPostsOld = ob_get_clean();
$replaceOld = array(“”, “”, “<ul”, “”);
$replaceNew = array(“”, “”, “<ul”, “”);
$relPostNew = str_replace($replaceOld, $replaceNew, $relPostsOld);
echo $relPostNew;

2. I had issues with pagination where i could not get all my posts. The issue is that i use 10 post in WordPress Reading Options and where as the theme only displays 2 posts and rest of the entries are skipped and when we move to next page we get the 11th and 12th post instead of 3rd and 4th.

So if there are instruction somewhere i could have saved some time and may be save time for lot of other people. Also can you set this from your theme options page?

Thanks again for all the hard work.

HemingwayEx in french…

I decided to translate the HemingwayEx WordPress theme in french for my personal site.
Based on the the v1.5 final release of the original theme, it includes many changes to ease the translation:

Add of _e() WordPress method
Minors updates of origina…

how can I install Yoast Tweetback PlugIn in this? I can’t find the code needed to change and adapt.
Pls help me.


does anyone have an updated theme that will work with 2.7? I have not been able to test functionality that much, but it looks like the comments are broken under 2.7 any help would be greatly appreciated.


im having a slight problem after i installed “intense debate”

now i have TWO “comments” headings.

how do i remove the one provided by hemingwayex?

i would really really appreciate if i could get your feedback about this problem…

check out any post on

sorry to bother you again… but i fixed it!

it was in the “Single Post” php file.

thanks for the wonderful work on the theme!!

Very nice looking Theme.


There is no information regarding the compatibility with the latest wordpress version ( now at this moment wp 2.8.2)

It would be nice if this theme is in constant development.

The final release (hemingwayex1.5) really says that it will never be any update from now and wordpress just announce that it already stopped support for wp2.x branch.

Very sad.

impossible to put a drop-down menu
which would be compatible with IE8 on Vista. (menu won’t drop-down visibly)

I have tried a lot

do you know one?

Thanks a lot if you know that issue ant tell something.

yokser :
do you have HemingwayEx in white version) ?

no white version no.

I tried final 1.5 and another version too.

Where is the white version please?

@Rick/@yokser: Did you try going to HemingwayEx’s options and selecting the white CSS? It’s there. You can look at HemingwayEx theme’s style folder. There is also a blue/black theme.

hi! thanks for interest.

I tried the white css, and always same issue: no drop down menu.

there seems to be a problem with wordpress 3.0
The Open Navigation drop menu does not work properly.

I’ll have a look at it.

I think the dropdown is great. Thanks for keeping the Hemingway theme updated and alive, it’s one of my favorites.

Is there a way to have the top slidebar open by default rather than closed? I do not know how to edit a template so I might need some very explicit instructions. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hey, thanks for this awesome update of Hemingway! I love what you’ve done with it.

One addition for folks out there who want to design a different static home page. I needed a way to edit the page.php that didn’t change the design of all of the pages. I have some photos I want to have cycle using wp_cycle on the main page but not the others. I solved this in the original Hemingway by adding a php file called homepage.php and altering the page content as needed. I know others have done this elsewhere but it has such a clean look I know quite a few people prefer to put photos on the main page. Cheers.

I would like to use the latest HemingwayEx white template, but unfortunately the menu still causes problems when using IE 6.

I’ve already tried both the 1.7 and 1.8 versions of the template, on WP 3.0 and 3.0.3 and the result is still ‘a black bar under the shaded gray navigation menu’. FF, Opera, Chrome and Safari all work well.

Surprisingly, there are websites (e.g. or, where the template works properly. Nevertheless, in the case of the site which I’m currently working on (, as well as for it just won’t work.

I would appreciate any guidance with fixing the bug.


Does the theme clash with mootools-based plugins? I was using Lightbox M for picture/video overlays and it no longer works. The links that should pop out the overlay window now simply jumps to the linked picture/video. I switch back to the default TwentyTen and several other themes (include the old Hemingway), and they all worked with the plugin.

I think I found the problem. It was the standard mootools/prototype clash. If I remove prototype from the theme, then my mootools-based plugin works; but the slidebar, which is obviously prototype-based, wouldn’t work. And I think a previous poster already mention how to go with jquery instead to avoid using prototype.

We’ve just installed Hemingway, new .css created, but in home page there are all our posts! Not 2, 4, 6, ALL!
Any help would be really appreciated.

Dear Nalin… so… in index.php we only translated English phrases into Italian (Categories>Categorie etc.) and created our css without changing style.css… paging is enabled… excerpt instead of post, ok… we really don’t understand why all posts are shown in home page! Any ideas?

@Nalin: PROBLEM SOLVED! The problem was that the last 80 post were “always on top” and this caused a mess!
BUT: sometimes a post deserves to be always – or longer than the other ones – on top; unfortunately even a single post on top screws up the layout…
And… if we wanted to show 4 or 6 posts, they would be displayed in a single column under the first post…
Such things maybe could be… corrected?
Any way, it’s only a suggestion… thank you very much for your WONDERFUL work!
From Italy, Sparajurij

You need to edit single.php in hemingwayex theme folder. Just remove the whole section. This might mean changing some css stuff too because the post section would become wider.

Hi Nailin, how you doing?
We’ve recently added a new page to our site, but the link doesn’t show up in home page, under the header…. also we cannot sort the pages in a diffferent order adding to functions.php “sort_column=*** Any ideas?

Thanx, Nalin… Wp menus solved… Unfortunately with 6 post in hp,,, well i can’t explain… sometimes they’re ok, sometimes they’re messed up… someone says: ‘it’s ok’, someone says: ‘oh no, it’s not!’. I really don’t understand.

Is there a way to add a logo instead of the name of the site on the top left? If so, can you please tell me how? I love this theme, I just want my logo there!

Hi Nalin,
Thanks immensely for providing the theme. The previous theme I used worked fine on all browsers except IE. I’m hoping this will be great. How can I add a logo to your theme, please?

I have an error: “Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end in D:\Softwares\Xampp\xampp\htdocs\wp1\wp-content\themes\background\functions.php on line 720”

Hey man – just wanted to stop by and say thanks for making a GREAT theme available to us! I’ve been looking for something very clean and simple to setup for my personal blog. Just amazed how nice this really is….great work!!!! Thanks again!!!

I’m using HemingwayEx on WP 3.3.1 and am currently translating it to German.
Just some small issue – it’s not valid. But this may be caused by WordPress itself, as it seems to screw links up or so.


Is your theme compatilble with wordpress 3.3.1? I think there may be broken plugin.php files and widget.php files. Can you fix, please?

Hi.. Nalin
Thanks for your theme. Now I’m using WP 3.8. Your theme cannot show two columns right now. I already checked two columns one post each in Hemingway EX option. Please solve this problem. Thanks a lot.
