How can I move the menu so that it is either centered or left justified? At the moment, it leans to the right and looks off balance.

I am a huge fan of this theme and am hoping it will be usable for a site for a new client. They would very much like the site to be as clean and minimal as this one: http://mono-1.com/

Is this possible? Could I have the slider effect with no shadow or arrows or anything, and no separation between the footer, main body/slider and header? Thank you very much for your help.

kaptinlin

Hi

Yes. You will have to turn off some of the shadows by css, and make all the backgrounds transparent in the color settings, but I see no reason why you cannot accomplish that look.

Should you have any further questions on this matter, please post at our support forum. On the forum are threads about removing shadows, etc.

I can’t Apply for Membership on page http://kaptinlin.com/support/entry/ because i do not know where is Item Purchase Code. I do not have a button “License Certificate”. Only “Regular License” and “Help with wordpress install”

Thanks!

kaptinlin

Hi

Sorry, I tried to answer to you last night before I went to bed, and the TF interface crapped out.

Download the Regular License certificate from your account. It is a live link so just click on it, and you will get the download dialogue.

Open it, as a few lines in will be your item purchase code listed. This is the code you use to register at the forum.

Please reply if you have any difficulties otherwise we will see you at the forum.

I have been meaning to leave a comment/review for over a year now and have been busy or lazy and realise how important it is for potential buyers to see feedback from users. It is all well and fine to have a good theme but the support ,updates and an ability to listen to customers and act upon it is paramount for a business to survive. This is what these guys provide. Initially I was a little lost, however I am ‘IT challenged’, once you get the hang of it and a little support – everything starts to make sense. Even a novice like me worked it out. The theme is amazing and can be as good as you want it to be. The most important issue is support. They absolutely rock – I think these guys don’t eat or sleep and spend their life, answering all our questions, and it appears no question is a dumb question. Last year I was in Paris and had problems, Paul logged into my site and fixed everything over night. Now that is service with a triple AAA rating, gold stars whatever you want to call it. I love it and it keeps getting better!

Gotta say, I’ve been using this theme for a while now and the support, friendliness and response from the developers is totally awesome. Can’t fault it. The theme itself is extremely comprehensive, more so that most on TF Buy it, get to know it and love it. Thanks guys. Very happy customer Full 5 stars.

Hi.

I’d like to know if this theme allows to set individual backgrounds for pages or posts in the content section.

Also I’d like to know if it could be possible to set the content background color to transparent in order to see the web image background as the content background.

Regards.

kaptinlin

Hi

Thank you for your interest in Striking.

In Striking Regular, one sets individual backgrounds using custom css. In Striking Responsive ->which is a free update for Striking regular, and which a new buyer can simply commence with immediately (the link to downloading it is on our support forum) the ability to set individual backgrounds is part of every page editor so no custom css is necessary.

As for your second question, the answer again is yes, and if we understand your question correctly, would the following be an example of what you are requesting:

http://www.strikingsupport.com/meadowgreen-bg/

that is done using individual page Striking settings in Striking Responsive. That was just done in a 2nd test.

I hope the above answers your questions, and again thank you for your interest in Striking WP Corporate & Portfolio Multipurpose Theme.

Hi There,

For some reason your ANYTHING SLIDER doesnt work in IE10

Any idea why?

My site: http://www.hurricaneroofing.com.au/

kaptinlin

Hi

If you were to go to the Striking Support forum, which is what is indicated in the Support Tab above for theme support, you would have seen that we have a downloadable update for Striking Regular – Striking Ver 5.2 posted via the support forum. It updates Striking for IE10.

For all people reading these Themeforest comments – we clearly indicate in both the Item Description for Striking, and in the Support tab, where and how we provide support. Follow our guidelines and you will not only more likely receive timely support, but if you actually take the time to read our guidelines, suggestions and instructions, you may even find the answer to your question without ever having to post a comment or question. Our support forum has thousands of thread, and literally a million dollars worth of advice on customizing, tweaking, plugins, and more.

Aabele, should you have any further questions regarding this matter, please post them at the Striking support forum.

Hi James,

Fair enough too – I did check the forum though and tried ver 5.2 but this was responsive and messed up my site. Is there a non responsive ordinary version which fixes the slider only?

kaptinlin

Hi Aabele

It sounds like you followed the link and installed the current beta of the forthcoming Striking Responsive Ver 0.962 rather then the link to Striking Beta Ver 5.2. Striking 5.2 is non responsive, whereas Striking 0.962 is responsive.

Here is the link to Striking Ver 5.2:

http://originalstriking.strikingsupport.com/

But rather then backtracking, as the regular Striking is going to be deprecated anyways when we formally release Striking Responsive in its place, perhaps you can post at the forum so we can contact you, and one of us will assist you in converting fully to responsive. Alternatively, we will assist you in backtracking to Ver 5.2.

Our support team is monitoring the forum periodically today (it is a holiday today for the team although it may not be in the country in which you reside) and someone should get back to you not to long after you post.

I am contemplating buying this theme. It looks pretty impressive, but I am a little concerned about one comment I read, you will likely know which review site made it, the review stated that Striking fails the W3C compliance test. Do you have any comment to make on this. Is it true, and if so what effect is that likely to have on SEO for instance?

I assure you that this is not a trick question, I am genuinely thinking about buying the theme.

I await your response with great interest.

Regards,

Alan

Hello again,

As I cannot add to my initial post, which I sent about an hour ago, in fairness, following my earlier comments, I used the online W3C Validator to check out quite a few other sites – about 20 or more, I didn’t count exactly. These were a variety of sites, including major international news organisation sites. I cannot say whether they used any particular theme, or indeed whether they were just html template sites.

The main point however is that without exception they ALL failed the W3C validation. Some to a greater or lesser extent than the others. I checked quite a few church related sites, which in this case is my particular interest. Again ALL failed the W3C validation, even though looking at the page source they all quoted a particular W3C Doctype.

So, even without receiving your reply to my first note (which I would still appreciate) I have come to the perhaps uneducated conclusion – does W3C validation really matter so much anyway? I am not now so concerned as I was before.

Looking forward to your response when you have the time.

Regards,

Alan

kaptinlin

Hi Alan

I actually don’t know a single site anywhere that passes it. There are a litany of issues with the test and one’s own browser is actually almost always the first cause of failure of a site. Furthermore, contrary to popular belief, Google does not test for w3c compliance!

Good markup on a site is always a good idea of course, but can you imagine, there are literally tens of millions of websites that were built long before tools such as this ever became available (think CNN, NY Times, Amazon, Ebay and more) and are so large could you imagine the impact if w3c validation were a factor! LOL

Themeforest itself does not bother with this testing either.

I recognize fanboys and people who just got out of college with their spanky new web design diploma probably go ape over these matters. But those of us with a very broad deep basis in math and code don’t – both we and google have far more important matters to grind through.

Should you buy Striking, you will want to immediately jump to the responsive version (its free for all purchasers) but you can ask away about anything on the forum. I do have some links I can refer you to on w3c should you want to spend more time on it. But its not where I recommend anyone spend a great deal of time, at least in respect of SEO.

Default-user

James,

I really did appreciate your helpful response to my query. I must admit that, and the little bit of research that I did, which I referred to in my second post, really opened my eyes. I had always understood that the w3c compliance thing was necessary, but as I have found out, and as you explained that seemingly is not the case.

As the result of my research, and your comments, I have purchased Striking. I downloaded it earlier this evening, and look forward to working with it to rebuild our church website.

You probably already know about these, but I found some really helpful narrated videos on Vimeo, they were made by someone called Tiffany Britt. I watched the first one, and it was just what I wanted. So I will gradually go through the others. I also began to look at the pdf you included in the Documentation, which also is very useful.

I must admit that I do like to take advantage of well made narrated videos, so if you know of any others that provide good advice on introducing and using Striking I would again be pleased if you could let me know.

Thanks again for what promises to be just the Theme I have been looking for.

It may be a dumb question for me to ask, but you mentioned the ‘Responsive’ version, where do I go to download that?

Regards,

Alan

kaptinlin

Hi Alan

The first thing I recommend to every user is that they head over to our support forum: http://kaptinlin.com/support/discussions and register. And in the header of the forum there is commentary, including links to the latest beta versions of both Striking Regular, and Striking Responsive.

Tiffany is a sweetheart, an independent designer based in the USA who made some videos of her own accord. You can also download this video set at http://www.strikingsupport.com/tut-videos.zip which has some older videos done by me which will greatly assist you in getting the lay of the land.

Just be advised that Striking has changed greatly over time as we have continuously updated Striking (technically 54 updates to date since inception and the most at Themeforest ->we are behind on the count on the Item Details page, we always update for WP, browser changes, etc), both features and admin, and the current version of Striking does look quite a bit different from the version in some of the videos. But the functions and shortcodes, at their core, operate the same way, and I believe they will greatly assist you.

Striking Responsive is the next forthcoming update of Striking. It is a free upgrade although its core code is substantially different from good old Striking Regular. Its Striking converted to a mobile friendly user experience, a challenge in itself as Striking in fact has far more features and abilities then typical of a theme. All have been preserved, and added to, in Striking Responsive.

There are no videos yet for Striking Responsive, but they will come with the official release, which we are pushing hard to do in as soon perhaps as a week. The forum is the place to ask questions in the interim.

BTW, Striking has proven to be a very, very popular theme with religious organizations. I believe it has been used at least a couple of hundred times for that purpose around the world, one or two of them may actually make the next showcase update.

See you on the forum! And thank you for your confidence in Striking WP theme.

This is my long overdue small(ish) review of my favorite WordPress theme ever. Having used countless themes over the years, both free and paid, I bought Striking thinking “Well, it looks nice, has a nice demo site, loads of features and the support team actually looks like having both the knowledge and passion to solve problems.”

Boy, was I wrong!

First, the theme is superbly well crafted and programmed. Divided by sections (header, feature header, page, footer, etc.) with literally hundreds of settings, you can change fonts, font colors, sizes, sections background, footer color, shape, alignment, etc., etc., etc. You get the picture.

That was my first and only major hurdle with Striking: after installing it in a test site, I was literally lost. Hundreds of settings made my head hurt. A few hours later I was cruising around the menus like they were designed by me. Unlike most top-rated-best-selling-super-duper themes around, Striking actually thinks about the site owner/developer and delivers a very intuitive backend.

Allow me to put that in perspective. After using Striking’s menus, everything else seems poor by comparison and I never used another theme since, unless some client specifically asks for it.

Second, the support. They go above and beyond what mere mortals might call “support”. If you discover a problem and can’t fix it on your own or following their instructions, they will actually ask you for credentials, log in to your site, fix it and leave faster than you can say “Go!”. And that is priceless! Good support is rare, excellent support is like an honest politician: no one has ever seen one but everyone hopes to.

Third, Striking’s flexibility is unparalleled. You can go from Tumblr’s minimalistic design all the way to complicated corporate sites just tweaking Striking’s menus, a few CSS lines, functions.php file and your vision of the end product.

With the upcoming Striking Responsive, scheduled to substitute non-responsive Striking, it’s even better. It’s in the final stages of beta, but already works much better than most responsive themes. I’m already using it in a few production sites and know more that a few Striking owners who do to.

Lastly, if you’re considering buying Striking, go ahead. You won’t be sorry. I promise you. Best $55 you’ll ever spend.

A final word for the fantastic community built around Striking and Striking’s developers Kap, James and Paul: you guys rock!!!

Wow! With 200 pages of comments, I expect somebody has already asked this, but I can’t read through it all – it’s a shame this theme isn’t responsive – will there be an update to make it responsive? :)

kaptinlin

Hi Alasdair

Thank you for your interest in Striking.

In fact there is a responsive version, which is available to all existing owners for free. It has not yet been “officially” released, but is coming very soon. On our support forum we supply a link to owners for a download site for it. The comment above from Seegnum references it near the bottom of their remarks.

There is a number of active threads on the Striking support forum about the Striking Responsive Beta. It is an extremely powerful and flexible responsive theme. 7 portfolio types, 4 blog types, 7 slider types including 3 premium sliders (Revolution, Ken Burner & Unleash Accordion), landing page template, 8 default header types, multiple ecommerce and language plugin support, sticky header, sticky footer, sticky sidebar, and everything customizable on a page/post basis rather then only theme wide settings.

You can do everything from a so called “clean” or “minimal” look to a magazine style, portfolio, ecommerce, business, art/photography/creative, blog site and have no two look alike. Colors, fonts, backgrounds, everything can be manipulated, often at a page/post. You can have some elements appear and disappear by viewport. There are 12 shortcoded widgets, 3 shortcoded sliders (4 if you include the swipable image widget). And I am hardly scratching the surface yet on features.

We are working now on the final stages to release and hope to have the Responsive version released either this Sunday (not likely now I believe) or the following Sunday (release will only be on a Sunday).

The current Striking non responsive theme is being deprecated in place of the responsive version, so this is an “update” and all legal Striking owners will be able to update to the Responsive version for free!

Ask any questions you might have. But be advised we don’t tend to visit this sales site to frequently. When we officially launch, there will be new demo, the Item Details here will be totally revamped, and there will be instructional videos.

Great work! I would like to buy an ecommerce template. Can I look at a demo with integrated woocommerce store somowhere? I like your template but I am not sure if i could mange the woocommerce integration. Thank you in advance.

kaptinlin

Hi

We have started building a new woo site, but it is using our forthcoming Responsive version (which is an update, available to all owners).

There is actually almost nothing involved to “integrating” woo with Striking. The essential steps are extremely simple:

1) install woo plugin via the install plugin function in wp 2) in our Striking settings (we have a number of admin panels, and one of them has some settings related to commerce) one turns on two settings related to ecommerce. 3) then go back to the plugin panel, and activate the woo plugin 4) Woo is integrated and running!

We have in Striking quite a number of complimentary settings for Woo (the ability to create custom sidebars for woo pages, and the ability to use Striking pages instead of the default woo pages amongst other things), and we are introducing more shortly.

We provide help on our support forum should a user have an issue. If a user sticks to the many woo default functions, as well as utilizes the Striking features and settings, since Woo includes many widgets of its own, a normal user should not encounter any issues.

We have on our forum a fair number of tweaks for woo in the threads, and we also have a woo info thread for keeping users up to date on woo-striking compatibility.

Please ask any other questions you might have.

Thank you for your interest in Striking.

Best Regards
Striking Team

Thank you for the prompt reply. Great support! You are right the integration would be quite simple. But there is a matter of styling of the shop because some of the themes are very well (sophisticated) styled and some very simple like default WooCommerce.

I need styled shop pages like product page, category etc. You can look at the competitors and themes like “Retailer” or “Mayashop”. Your theme is awesome and with many shop features could be really to the best one. Maybe you have some examples of integrated shops? I would like to look at them before I buy the theme.

kaptinlin

Hi

You are correct in one context in that we have not set up any specific styling for Woo. Striking is a multipurpose theme, so we have not set up specific styling for any one ecommerce plugin, although we have done other integrations to make ecommerce work better.

But another reason for this is that with plugins like woo and wp-ecommerce, one can style pages using the Striking elements instead. This is the more common practice at this time.

Here is a sample of some sites that I know of that use Striking and Woo:

http://thegooddogmacompany.com
http://trafficschoolnv.com/
http://www.thecraft-studio.com
http://www.keizus.com/
http://www.entrusttefl.com/
http://www.littlestar.se/products/?lang=en
http://veturotherapy.com/
http://www.edex.sk/

This is a sampling of the links that I know use Woo and some form of Striking. Hope it is of some assistance.

Is this a themeforest issue, or can you no longer download the license after a certain amount of time?

I’m considering purchasing this theme and switching my site to it, but I currently use cart66 as my commerce method. Will this theme easily work with that or would I have to switch to wp-commerce?

kaptinlin

Hi Matthew

Thank you for your interest in Striking WP Multipurpose Corporate & Portfollio Theme.

We have not done a test with Cart66 in a long time. I know of one site currently running it but we have made no special effort to keep track of this plugin and Striking usage so I don’t have more examples at this time:

http://www.yogaorganico.org/

on our latest official release Striking Regular Version 5.1.9.6.

I just ran a very quick test with Cart66 Lite on our forthcoming Striking Responsive Beta. It activated with no errors, I was able to do the setup, add a product (although I did not see where I add the product image but I am totally unfamiliar with this plugin personally), add the product to the page, with variations, add to cart, and activate the cart widget for the sidebar. This all took about 2 minutes in total.

I also checked our error consoles, and no scripting errors show. The cart elements that I could test were all responsive within our responsive framework.

So my best guess is that Striking Responsive, as well as Striking 5.1.9.6, are at or near 100% compatibility with Cart66. I don’t think we have ever had a forum question on this cart, or if we have, it has at most been one or two. If you found an error of some sort, we would make best efforts to correct if it were something attributable to Striking, and correcting would not throw the balance of the theme into disarray.
