Hello I am planing to buy your theme but there is one issue http://kaptinlin.com/themes/striking/portfolios/sortable/portfolio-3-columns/ click on image then click on video tab after that try to click on thumbnail of video then i saw error “This content failed to load.” Let me know when you can fix this so i can purchase
kaptinlin

Hi Mak

If one gets such a message, it usually is due to the fact the content has been removed at the source, in other words the vimeo or youtube video has been removed. It could also be due to the fact that content has a geographic restriction, although that is a rarer matter.

We will go through the vids later and if any have been taken down at source, we will replace them. Thanks for letting us know.

I want to buy this theme, but need to know if I can have multiple portfolios, and choose which one to display on a certain page. Thanks, looks like a great theme.

kaptinlin

Hi Ydnic:

Thank you for your interest in Striking.

When I see a question like this, it reminds me that many abilities that we take for granted in Striking in fact are not common in other themes, even premium ones.

In Striking, one can have as many portfolios as one wants, can display them as many times as they like, can display them on any page or post they want, can display multiple portfolios filtered more ways then most ever need anywhere they want as often as they want, etc.

And in Striking Responsive – which is free for all Striking owners, we have introduced new portfolio types (it has 8 different types of portfolios now).

If you go to our support forum and read this thread:

http://kaptinlin.com/support/discussion/9024/need-to-know-about-your-responsive-sites-for-our-new-showcase

You will get a taste of how users are feeling about Striking Responsive, which we are going to be releasing very soon.

BTW, everything I just said about portfolios? It applies to blog posts, shortcoded sliders, lightboxes, gmaps, etc.

I know our current demo and Item Description is way out of date, it only gives a flavour of what Striking does now. But soon it will all change…....

Thanks again for your inquiry. I think there is a comment on one of the two prior pages from someone who bought after quizzing us on abilities, and came back and was very happy. Hope you will be too!

Patiently waiting for the update that includes the responsive option. Thank you very much.

Hi Judd

That is a great site. Thank you for sharing it with us.

As you may be able to tell by the recent activity, we are ramping up to the official responsive release. But you should certainly download the beta and start playing around with it in the interim. It has many new features and abilities (8 portfolio types for example) and now is the time to start getting familiar with it.

Many users have already converted their sites – I have posted a sample list of sites that have converted on the Item Details page of Striking.

The best WP theme I’ve come across by far!

I have a small website which is half blog and half ecommerce site using the WooCommerce plugin. I’ve tried several different themes over the years and haven’t been 100% happy with any of them – until I installed Striking that is!

Compatibility with WooCommerce is flawless and there are so many options to get the site looking at working just the way you want. A novice can have a great looking site up and running in no time with ease, and more experienced users will love the flexibility and compatibility to get the site just as required.

Most importantly of all, the support is great – fast and helpful. Any small bugs are soon squashed and the theme kept up-to-date for new WP versions etc.

You can check out my site running Striking here: http://matchlessclueless.com/

5 star theme, 100% recomended!

kaptinlin

Hi Jos

Thank you for the wonderful recommendation. Glad we were the one that made the grade. Your words essentially echo numerous (thousands) of past comments we have received -> people don’t find us initially unless they search the best selling themes of all time, and by then they have been through many other templates with varying degrees of success. Then they find us, and the world turns in a positive way again for them.

Look forward to seeing your wonderful site (both you and forgottenwarrior.com above have great color schemes) convert to responsive in the near future.

hi i think it’s time to add RTL support wnd your sales will be up 50% for sure?

kaptinlin

Hi

We have full RTL support in Striking, both the 5 series and Striking Responsive. The Item Description page is about to receive a complete overhaul (it is very out of date on features) and we will be sure to add this more prominently to the revised description. It is in the description area below the twitter and support links, but one has to search to find it…...

Hi Kaptinlin,

I've just updated the theme to the latest one, and my menus no longer work. Any ideas?

www.thefinishingtouch.co.uk

Many thanks

Ian

kaptinlin

Hi Ian

I just went to your site and saw that the menus are working. But can you please go to the Striking Advanced Panel and toggle the Striking Cache setting to ON, and then save it please.

Should you need any further assistance, as per the instructions in the Support Tab above, please go to the Striking Support forum, register if you are not yet registered, and post a thread with your questions.

Thank you.

Hi Kaptinlin, I did try toggling the cache, but had no effect. So I reinstalled an older version of Striking theme (july 2012) that still worked. As a business I couldn’t risk the website not working properly. Apart from the menus, homepage slider wasn’t working either which wasn’t creating a good impression of the website. I’ve looked at the support forums but couldn’t find anything related to menus, any ideas?

PS. Did the new theme require latest wordpress 3.6.1 to work? only the last time I installed wordpress update, my nextgen gallery stopped working, so I reinstalled previous version!

Many thanks for your time

I have been using Striking for a few years now for our small business’s website. This is a great theme; it’s very flexible, and gives you the ability to customize it to suit your preferences and needs. The support is amazing. Even with a large customer base and the huge range of options each customer has, they provide detailed, personalized answers every single day.

I’ve used a variety of free themes for other small projects for friends or family, and every time I run into something that I have to figure out and wrestle with that just WORKS with Striking. There is a ton of stuff built into the framework that makes putting together a site so much easier. It’s definitely worth purchasing.

I am not one to write reviews or comments, but Striking is such a incredible product I could not resist.

Unlike a lot of products on the market today, Striking delivers what it promises.

I am a small business just wanting to update the look of a website that I had professionally done some years ago. At present I did not have the money to hire a developer so I decided to purchase striking because of all the sites I saw built on this template. The thing is, I know nothing about website development. I attempted this once before, hit a roadblock and gave up and called a developer. With Striking, a little time and a little patience I was able to create a website that not only suits my needs but I’m very proud of.

Striking is not just good, it’s fantastic. and on top of that the support is second to none. and there’s a lot to be learned from others in the support forum as well.

I looked at thousands of templates. I could not be happier with my decision to purchase STRIKING. Al

Is it possible to add additional fields to the widget > contact form? I want to add email and phone and require them. I tried to install 2 different form plugins but they will not show up in the striking theme. See http://thefencecompanyonline.com/test-page/ it just shows the shortcode. Thanks.

kaptinlin

Hi

What two contact form plugins did not work with Striking? Striking is certified to work for Contact Form 7, Fast Secure Contact Forms, Quforms and Gravity Forms. That is 95% of the contact form market right there.

I see the contact form 7 shortcode, but the plugin itself does not show as active in the site (I have developer tools that allow me to see exactly what is active at this time and you have no contact form plugins active at the moment I checked – actually you had no plugins active at all and I took a snapshot of the code to confirm) so the shortcode strings will obviously not work.

I realize you may not be able to register at the support form this moment, but it will be fixed for Thursday, and then I recommend you post on the support forum and we will work to assist you.

Once you register and post, we will assist you. Lots (likely hundreds) of sites have C7 running, so I do not know what your issue might be, but we will walk you through it.

Hey there,

Stupid question, but how do I create an RTL version of the website? if you can direct me to the steps I have to take i’ll be greatful.

kaptinlin

Hi Dragonit90

We have a number of threads on RTL in the support forum. RTL is automatic when one is using an rtl language for the wp admin.

If you look in the Striking CSS folder in the theme files, you will see that there is a whole css file for rtl, and it is called automatically per wp codex guidelines when one sets the language of the site in the wp.config file (or when you create your wp admin using an rtl language).

If running a multilanguage install, using say wpml plugin, then the plugin guides on enabling the rtl for themes which have support RTL – which Striking does.

If you have any difficulties or stumbling blocks on this matter please go to the Striking forum, register and post, and we will assist you.

Is it possible to put tabs on a page with this theme?

kaptinlin

Hi Clubware3

Thank you for your interest in Striking.

Of course! One can have tabs in pages, posts, the text widget in the sidebar or footer, the post excerpt, etc.

I hope this was your question and I did not misunderstand it. It really seemed to simple! This is such a basic ability we just take it for granted…...

Best Regards
Striking Team
James

Clubware3

Very cool. Thanks so much. I can totally understand why it’s common but you’d be surprised how many templates don’t have this function or at least don’t make it simple. I’ve looked at hundreds of themes.

kaptinlin

Hi

We have a tab shortcode. It has 3 variations: tabs, mini tabs, and vertical tabs. Within the tabs, one can place almost any content, including other theme shortcodes.

The tab shortcode can also be put into a text widget, a common use, with each tab having some content.

The following page has some examples of tabs:

http://kaptinlin.com/themes/strikingr/shortcodes/tabs-accordion-toggles/

The tabs can also have colors (we did not set any in the demo) with the color options found in the Striking color panel.

This theme is starting to look like everything I’ve been looking for in a portfolio theme. A few questions, though:

1. Can the images be displayed flat, without the 3D effect (curvature/shadows)?

2. Can the portfolio images have the spacing between them adjusted all the way down to butting them up to each other or anything in between?

3. From what I’m reading about how flexible the layouts are, can I assume that I could use multiple portfolios within the One Page layout?

4. I see the various icon overlays for links, magnifier, doc, etc. From the code sample shown, it seems that I could provide my own icons for the overlays…is that correct?

5. Since there is the ability to overlay portfolio images with an icon, is it also possible to overlay the entire image with a solid color with text and/or icons for the links, magnifier, docs, etc.? I’ve seen this effect in other portfolios. It’s a nice way to do it without having extra space taken up with descriptive text below the image.

Thanks.

kaptinlin

Wow, I never saw so many questions for a $55 purchase!!

1) yes, with the right lazyload plugin

2) yes

3) yes

4) not a feature of the theme.

5) not as part of the core. A sep development team with whom we have a relationship is building some paid addons for Striking. They have advised they are including a masonry type look in their work. There are free plugins that work with Striking as well for grid or masonry appearances.

I’m very sorry about all the questions. I REALLY appreciate you taking the time. And I must say you have the most throughly detailed page of features of any theme I’ve seen. I thank you for that, too.

But it did save me having to buy a few themes that looked like they fit my purposes on the surface, but ultimately didn’t—and probably saved me many days of experimentation with them only to find out they didn’t do what I wanted. Unfortunately, I had now narrowed it down to Striking and another, but there were a couple design elements in the other that made it just a little easier to work with my design out of the box. Even so, if that decision doesn’t work out, I’ll be back to buy Striking.

I did, however, recommend this to a friend who is looking for something that I think this would be perfect for. Thanks again.

kaptinlin

Hi

Your welcome. Good luck with the other theme.

We tend to find that many users buy something else initially, and then come back to us afterwards when they find out that the degree of customization and flexibility they required was not available in that product. Even if you check out some of the comments either here or at the forum, you will see that users get “seduced” thinking that something they saw elsewhere trumped what was available in Striking, and after pulling their hair out, come back to us.

The only major features Striking Responsive does not have are retina, masonry and the page builder. I don’t count lazyload as a major feature, but it does not include lazyload.

We prefer to leave these retina, masonry and lazyload to plugins. That may change in the future. Page builder we really detest, as what seems like a good idea in the short term is incredibly awful in practice most of the time, and brutal once one wants to start to really tweak a page or post in detail. The only good aspect of it is that it has sent us many customers over time.

I wish you best of luck with your project and thank you for the customer referral. Striking Responsive shall be out soon, and perhaps we will draw you back at a future date.

Hello, when it’s released the final version of the responsive site?

kaptinlin

HI Etneo86

We are working on this. Ideally, by next Sunday if we can get all the related work for a release complete. I would say no more then 7 days from today’s date at the outside, as the beta development path itself has been completed.

Thanks for your interest. Striking Responsive we believe (and judging from the feedback so far) sets a new standard for a multipurpose theme and has amazing customization ability for site creation.

Hi,

Two pre-sale questions.

1) can portfolios be 4 column without text

2) can you have no text galleries link to portfolio pages instead of opening all images in a lightbox popup?

kaptinlin

Hi mrkingid

Thanks for your interest in Striking.

1) Yes, what you choose to show along with the thumbnail when creating a portfolio list is all in the striking shortcode -> titles, excerpt, read more etc are all customizable and optional.

2) Yes, you can have the thumbnail image link directly to the portfolio post webpage, or have it link to any other url.

The responsive version of Striking actually has 8 portfolio types (actually 9 since you can have dual linking items in the portfolio list) and portfolio flexibility is fantastic.

Ok so I’m setting up striking now. Here’s the site so far for reference: http://69.89.31.194/~fmkphoto/new/

A couple of questions for you: 1. My header (logo) is overlapping my menu items. How do I work around this? Same thing goes when I add widgets like Facebook – it puts it on top of something else around the header.

2. I thought I had a “home” button on my menu but it doesn’t seem to be there. How do I get that up there?

3. And finally – I’m trying to make my gallery pages have “manual slideshows” like seen here: http://forgetmeknottphotography.com/nature/?page_id=330

I want to to be so when you click on the image it pulls up a lightbox type of thing that you can manually scroll through. How do I achieve that in Striking?

Thanks!

kaptinlin

Hi!

Thank you for purchasing Striking.

We provide all theme support by way of our own support forum, as is clearly indicated in both the Support Tab above these comments, and in the Item Description. We ask that you register at the support forum, and ask your questions (1 question per thread please) and support team members will assist you.\

I will advise that for your first question, go to the Striking General Panel, and the first setting is to adjust the Header Height. So make your header taller.

We will follow for your other questions at the support forum.

I would also suggest that if you are just starting to build out your website now, that you jump right away to Striking Responsive, which is a free upgrade for license holders. The first “announcement” thread on the forum on the responsive beta has the link to where you can download it.

Thank you and Best Regards

Hello!

I really want to buy this item, but my clients uses IE 7, 8 version. I have experienced some compatibility mode problems in IE from other themes. I want to know it is have or not!

When I open this Demo site in IE8, in portfolios menu, I switch it “Portfolio 4 Columns”, all photos are not look and just loading. I turn off the compatibility mode and it looks well.

Do you have any solutions for it except changing the compatibility mode in users computer? As you know, it’s not easy to notice to all people to change it! Thanks!

kaptinlin

Hi

I am failing to understand the compatibility mode issue. Simply don’t use it. View the site in ie8 and it is fine. It views fine in ie7 as well, and I think even in Ie 6. We certify for the actual browsers, not for compatibility mode, which has many issues. I look at that same page in actual ie8 on an xp machine, and it is fine, so I do not know what else to say to you.

The font is part of the theme. We supply 45 cufon fonts, 45 fontface fonts, and over 700 google fonts.

Best Regards
Striking Team

Oh I’m sorry to hear you. I know it’s simple if we don’t use it.

But I just finding theme that has no problem in compatibility “on” mode, because in my area many people using internet in IE compatibility “on” mode. As you know, it’s hard to notice to many people for changing their computer browser mode.

I just want to say the same compatibility “on” mode, the same theme site, the same coding page looks differently. And I think your theme could have solution about it! (My computer has IE8 and it is actual browser, and when I install it, it was in compatibility “on” mode. It means the people who are using IE could have same problem in my area)

I don’t know about the browsers in fact, I’m not an programmer, just a graphic designer. If your theme has no solution about the compatibility mode, I have to give it up and find another thing though I really want to yours because my client want it looks well in every situation!

Thanks for your fast and kind reply even weekend, and my English is bad. I want to use it the next chance. Have wonderful weekend!

kaptinlin

Hi

I am still not quite getting it, but I have earmarked compatibility mode for ie 8 for future study. We realize a small percentage of users are still on IE8 for one reason or another, and of course, optimally we would like everyone to be successful with our theme. We even have coding right back to ie6 in the theme!

Thanks for the consideration. Best Regards!
