Tell me, can I use your template on the two domains?
Yes. Please note however that each domain will need it’s own license. (ie you will simply need to purchase Sterling 2 times in order to use on 2 domains)
Please let us know if there’s anything else we can do to help.
So I’ve been having all sorts of issues trying to get this theme to install. My client was using iPage.com hosting, I installed a fresh copy of WordPress, uploaded the theme, then it said the filesize was too big. So I increased the limits per the php.ini file trick.
The theme uploaded just fine. Once I hit activate, the whole screen just went blank. Then nothing. I can’t even log back into the site at all. I was able to delete the theme files via FTP and then log back in. I was able to install other themes with no issues.
So then I made up a test subdomain on my HostGator hosting account (test.eightdeuce.com) and installed the theme. Everything worked perfect, no issues. So I told the client to switch to HostGator. They did, but they setup a VPS hosting account. I just use the basic shared hosting. Oh well, should work.
I went to install the hosting on their new server, and the same thing happened. I was able to hit activate and that worked. But then I hit the link that said something about installing the plugins that came with the theme, then the screen went blank, and now I can’t log back into the admin area.
I contacted HostGator live chat and they said they need to know what all of the requirements are to run this theme. Can you supply me with that ASAP? Thanks.
It sounds like it could be related to a plugin conflict issue. Please try to disable all plugins before installing the theme.

Thanks so much
This is a brand new WordPress install, updated to 3.5.1, and I have done nothing else. I logged in for the first time and went straight to the theme install. But I will go submit a ticket.
Hey Guys, Great theme! I didn’t get the HTML files in the bundle like it says – I only got the design files and the WordPress theme (PHP files). Last year when I purchased the Karma WordPress theme, I also got a folder with the plain HTML template also…
We’ve just responded to your support ticket on helpdesk.
Cheers my friend
Hello, Thanks for such a great theme. But a question, This theme comes with over 100 built-in short codes. But in visual editor there are only 18 appeared. So have you any cheat sheet or any list of all short codes like [pagination_links], [home_marketing_content], [home_marketing_icons], [home_marketing_blog_posts] etc.
The 100 shortcodes refers to the variations of all the included shortcodes. (ie different color buttons, different styles of tabs + image frames, etc)
The full list of shortcodes can be viewed on the demo site here: http://themes.truethemes.net/Sterling/shortcodes
All shortcodes are available via the built-in shortcode manager.
I hope this information is helpful my friend.
well, remain confused. can u please give an example like how to insert [pagination_links]
We’re very happy to assist you my friend.
Hi, I purchased the theme and I want to congratulate you for the good job. I have a problem: i installed wpml plugin and i would like to add a translation content into the “Site Options” fields (eg. Footer Callout Text)
How can I enable this function?
Thanks a lot

This theme has it all…all the functionality I need without needing a ton of plugins to install. And knowledgeable and very responsive support – not always easy to find support with other themes. Thanks Sterling!
You’re very welcome my friend. Thank you so much for your kind words and taking the time to give us your feedback. You rock!
im not sure how to send a ticket,thats why im asking here.
When I installed the theme, I chose a default logo.. now I try to change it with a customized logo that I made but I cant. It allows me to choose only from the default logos.
How to do change it ?
It sounds like the Custom Logo field still has text inputted into the “Logo Text” section of the Options Panel. When text is present in this field it will “activate” the custom logo builder and “de-activate” a logo image that you’ve uploaded.
To fix, simply remove any text within the “Logo Text” field and your uploaded logo image will be activated.

I would like to double confirm some external plugin over here to prevent conflict in the wordpress.
Sexybookmarks, shortcode-ultimate, synved shortcode.
Your help is appreciate.
We’re very happy to test out these plugins on our local server and give you a shout back with confirmation.
Can you kindly post the links to these plugins so we can do some testing?
Awesome. Thanks so much. We’ll test the plugins right now and give you a shout back very soon.
Hi my friend,
We’ve done some testing and here are our findings:
Synved-shortcodes: This plugin does not properly include necessary files into the theme. All functionality works but some of the styling is not 100% proper.
SexyBookmarks: Works great without any issues.
Shortcodes Ultimate: Works great without any issues.
I hope this is helpful my friend.
Please give us a shout if there’s anything else at all we can do to help.
Thanks my friend.
Glad to receive ur support =D
Sure. Will consult you over here.
Hi my friend,
I have tried the Shortcodes Ultimate.
After adding some shortcodes, the homepage seem to unable to load.

Why doesnt the Visual Composer work with this theme?
Great theme by the way!
We’ve never used Visual Composer plugin so we’re unable to say why it is incompatible.
We’re very happy to log into your site and take a closer look behind the scenes to help you resolve.
and here is link analyzed:
My regular non-WP page loads fine (www.2kn.com). Is this a server issue ? Or a PHP issue?
Amazing theme! Great video tutorials and documentation!
Thank you so much my friend! You rock!
Been using TrueThemes for some time now and have to say their support is beyond question. Even little things to keep my customers happy are no problem. If you want a great theme and amazing support, look no further.
Thanks again for all your help
Hi Andy. Thank you so very much for your kind words. You rock!
Hi, I just bought your item but I am concerned with one thing: there are lots of base64 codes in this template. Is this safe? I checked with Theme-Check plugin for Wordpress, and I got several warnings for base64. Thanks!
Yes Sterling is completely safe. We’ve invested literally thousands of dollars sending our framework out to a member of the Wordpress Core team who did a complete audit and optimization of all of our code to ensure rock-solid security and best practices of all coding throughout.
The base64 code is primarily necessary for the use of reCapthca form verification.
I hope this information is helpful.
Please feel free to give us a shout if there’s anything else we can do to assist.
Thanks TrueThemes, I forgot there was a support page! Anyways, thanks for your sincere reply!
Hi. Love, love, love your video tutorials. You totally rock!!
I have a Wordpress website and will be changing the current theme to Sterling. If I download the demo site too, will I still have the current pages on my site, or will downloading the demo site overwrite/delete them? Many thanks.
Thanks so much for the kind words my friend.
If you choose to import the included XML Demo content it will simply be added to all of your existing content (pages, uploads, posts etc). You will not lose any of your current information.
Hope this helps.
I am also worried about the base64 codes. Would be great if you could answer to holyjohn.
Just responded to the base64 question. Please just let us know if there’s anything else we can do to assist.
I just purchased this theme. I installed it on a fresh install, removed all old plugins, but for some reason, I can’t install the prepackaged plugin – Layer Slider.
Certain web servers do not allow for files to be installed from a 3rd-party server.
We’re very happy to help you to manually install this plugin.
I have already purchased the Sterling theme twice and have purchased other themes from TrueThemes in the past. They simply offer the fastest, best, most effective support. I rarely have any issues with their themes and mostly need their help when trying to customize something. They are friendly, they are professional, they are awesome. You won’t be disappointed purchasing from them. And no, I have never met them and we are not related, they are just that amazing.
Wow. Thank you so much my friend. Your kind words and gratitude really mean so much to us.
Thank you for lettings us serve you.
I purchased the Sterling Theme and made so many changes that I don’t like the result. How do I erase what I have done and start over again with a fresh install of the template and content?
If you are referring to the changes made within the Site Options Panel you can simply click the “Reset All Options” button in the bottom left corner of the Site Options Panel.
If you need any further assistance please kindly submit your question as a ticket on our secure HelpDesk so that our dedicated support team can further assist you.
Quick question. Is it possible to display different color schemes on different sections of the site?
Home page – blue
Health – green
Business – orange
Entertainment – black
How would this be best accomplished?
Thanks so much for your Sterling interest.
Yes this is indeed possible.
Each page has a custom box that enables you to modify the color schemes and design for that specific page.
Here’s a screenshot for more details: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/7008416/_screenshots/sterling-page-design.png
Hope this is helpful my friend.
I have been using this theme for over six months, now. The theme itself is excellent—feature-rich, flexible, functional. However, the theme is not what made me take the time to write this comment; it was their customer support. Every time I’ve contacted them, they’ve been quick to reply and extremely helpful. Even when one of the issues turned out to be completely unrelated to the theme, they took the time (quite a bit of time) to fix it for me anyway. Stellar! I recommend Sterling for Wordpress, and I highly recommend TrueThemes. Thanks, guys.
Thank you so much my friend. Honestly and truly. Your kind words mean the world to us.
