James,

I have a question. I am using Striking for two different sites – of course, I love the theme and its flexibility. However, I cannot find a Cache plugin that works without breaking the website.

Do you have any suggestions?

Chesa

Hi Chesa

Can you please go to the support forum and post any questions you may have on this matter?

Both of the main caching plugins, plus a variety of lessor known ones all work fine.

One has to remember that with any caching plugin, certain features in the plugin may not be applicable to a particular theme, or web host.

As well, a common mistake is using the wrong settings in the the minify group, since Striking already has most of its js minified. So if you try to minify what is already minified, then you break things.

The default wp theme, which has no advanced js in it, is what some plugin features are designed to be used with.

It gets down to a users knowledge of wordpress, actually understanding the background and intent of each feature in a caching plugin, and the environment in which they wish to deploy those settings.

I can also advise that having been in thousands of user sites using caching plugins, such plugins and Striking work fine together. Further proof, if you look at that list of sites posted at the top of the Item Details tab, and head over to the forum to the thread “Tell us about your Responsive Site” from where this list is drawn, you will see that most are employing a caching plugin (they all list the plugins in use), and their sites are humming along just fine.

Actually, Striking Responsive in particular, has extraordinary plugin compatibility. We would be willing to wager that no other theme with the scope and complexity of Striking is as plugin compatible. And its what we are advised by the many designers who use Striking in their day to day work (many have remarked upon this in their comments).

And also remember one cannot use a plugin, and the built in optimizing functions found in the JavaScript & CSS Optimizer Options tab at the same time.

Thank you for loving the theme. Should you have questions on how to employ a particular setting in a caching plugin, ask on the forum.

Best Regards

Are all updates free once this theme is purchased?

kaptinlin

Hi

Yes. Is that not the case with all themes at Themeforest? I suppose many authors don’t actually update very often. The preferred methodology by many is to release updates as a new theme, but that is not how we work.

We update continuously, and have an outstanding track record since releasing Striking.

Thank you for your inquiry into our theme.

Hey guys, it’s been weeks since you first said you were submitting the responsive version. Can you give us an update, please?

thanks chad

kaptinlin

Hi Chad

Themeforest came back to us and said they were unable to review the update without written documentation. This was an issue for us as we moved much of our help to built-in help fields, and had planned on doing up a new set of external docs after the initial release.

So we have been busy writing (its a slow process).

I think we are going to resubmit this week, based on what we have written. Its about 100pgs so far (Striking Responsive has a lot of features) and should be enough for them to grasp the basics.

Thank you for your inquiry and interest in Striking.

Hi The responsive version, its a Mobil compatible??

When its ready because i want buy the theme with all functions. because if i install now then i need upgrade the theme right?

kaptinlin

Hi

You can buy now, and instead of installing Striking 5.2.2.2 go to our support forum, follow the links on it to the responsive vesion of Striking and just install that instead. And of course it is fully mobile compatible.

If you have any other questions please do not hesistate to ask.

Hi, I am updating this theme on my clients website. He is having this theme. Server does not support auto update, WordPress asks for ftp details. So how to manually update theme.

kaptinlin

Hi

The way to update is by ftp should this occur. Do you have ftp access to your clients site? Your listed as a theme author, so you must know how to update a wordpress site by ftp – that is wp 101.

If you and your client continue to have difficulties, then you should register at the Striking support forum, and post a thread indicating you require assistance updating your site.

Just to echo chadelwine’s comment, I too am looking forward after a much longer than expected wait. That said, I appreciate that your team never evades answering the tough questions as well.

Thanks!

Hi John

Well, we would not even suggest waiting for the Themeforest official approval, given that the responsive version is available to users anyways via the download link at the forum. At my last count, there were over 700 sites live with Striking Responsive (we can see via our own api), and I think there are about 90 of those sites listed in the Responsive thread at the support forum by uses who have converted.

I have posted about 13 sections of the revised help documentation, and have another 4 sections about ready to post – the woocommerce section is 25pgs, and I think I still have material to add to it.

Its an odd situation in the first place since there is actualy no official documentation requirement for any Themeforest theme, yet we were soft rejected on the basis of they needing documentation in order to analyze and pass the update. But having a theme like Striking update to Responsive, and pile on literally 100%+ more features is likely a first at TF. Most dvelopers release as a new theme instead (meaning it costs you money….).

BTW, Did you know we have a demo site where we have Woo, Easy Digital Downloads and Image Store all running at the same time – yes 3 eccommerce plugins running at once, plus Ubermenu, WPML and some contact forms, error free. That’s a stress test I would be willing to hold up against any theme in the world.

There is two good aspects to the delay in resubmitting: now we have documentation that we were otherwise going to do after the fact, and possibly, just possibly, we might even have tinkered a little further with the features while I have been stuck writing documentation (I am the only English first language member of the Striking support team). I also have more videos to release shortly.

I was hoping we would be in a position to resubmit today, but examining what still needs to be done, I think Tuesday or Wed is a more likely potential candidate for resubmission.

You guys rock! I am getting the best support (by far) I have ever had in my life for any product/service I have ever bought: prompt, effective, generous and kind.

Striking has been the most powerful and flexible theme I have worked with but now, with the update/upgrade to the Responsive version, all my dreams have come true, and you have given it to us for free, instead of releasing a new theme like other authors do, that is….striking!!!

I will carry on building sites for my clients with Striking for a long, long time.

Thank you!

Any potential buyers of this theme look no further, just get it. The support is amazing and the theme is exceptional. There is very little you cannot do with it.

I will always be using the striking theme.

Hi Striking Team!

I found a new theme today on Themeforest that resembles Striking Responsive so closely that I was shocked. It even has a Responsive Text Shortcode and no one other then StrikingR has ever had that which I recall. There were an huge number of other similarities.

I know you guys indicated on the forum you had a “soft rejection” from Themeforest in mid Nov for StrikingR on the basis of they needing “documentation” to approve the update. It just seems a little fishy to me that you guys got rejected and this other theme with some apparently big wordpress poobahs and the same features got approved. I remember what happened with the special treatment Woo got, and the whole gpl fiasco, and I smell a rat on this in more then one way. I could be wrong but I am going to send you a pm on the forum with more details.

Thanks for the help with my store. I love the new sliders :bigsmile: No one will ever be able to match your support in any case, as only you guys go the extra mile with live support when necessary.

Toodles! AS

Hi AlysShee

Yes, we had several of our users advise about this matter with thoughts similar to yours.

We have the best track record of longevity, innovation and support of any theme at Themeforest. When all else confuses the picture, discerning buyers will hopefully see through to these superimportant points.

Thank you for your concern. I received your forum pm as well and have responded to more of your points in my reply back to you.

Hi

Is it safe updating to WP 3.8 with this theme running?

Thanks

kaptinlin

Hi

Yes, if you check both the Item Description Tab, or the Support Forum, we advised on compatibility within minutes of WP 3.8 being released. Your website will display just fine to your visitors.

WP 3.8 is about cosmetic changes to the admin interface, not about fundemental matters that can affect how a website displays.

Just read previous post! I updated but homepage slider went funny will post in forum…

kaptinlin

Hi

Did you remember to go to the Striking Advanced Panel, and toggle on the Clear Cache setting and save the panel?

There are no issues of which we are aware in respect of wp3.8 and Striking. This wp update is not really about content related matters. The focus is on the fact they made the dashboard/admin responsive, and added a color pallete for the admin, and other cosmetic type changes.

Nothing really touches upon how a website displays, or even the theme (other then responsive admin).

I suspect your issues are related to something else entirely.

However, be advised there are changes in the core that do impact plugins, and likely once again a certain array of plugins may not be compatible, and will need updating by their authors.

Hey There -

A client of mine has this as their theme, freaking LOVE IT, and working with it! However, he just emailed me telling me that bluehost (the server we are hosting on) is updating to PHP 5.4 in the next 48 hours. I just wanted to make sure or check to see if this theme is compatible with that, or if I am out of luck. ;)

Cheers! Tara

kaptinlin

Hi Tara

Is your friend on Striking 5.2 series or have they done the upgrade to Sriking Responsive?

It really makes no diff, both versions are php 5.4 compatible.

Be advised that wordpress itself is not compatible with php 5.5 and we have a thread on that topic at the support forum (which is open viewing for all). But this has nothing to do with php 5.4.

Anyone who knows Striking knows we are always compatible with wp/php/browser updates, if not by the time of release, then very soon afterwards. Its been that way for almost 4 yrs now – we always stay up to date. We announced wp 3.8 general compatibility one minute after it was released…...

Hello, if I test my client web on pingdom tools it shows error with striking/fonts/0?ver=3.8

Please can you test it? Anyone have this error?

Thanks,

Bigdrobek

kaptinlin

Hi Bigdrobek

Prior to our testing, can you please go to the support forum, and post a screenshot of the error, or just put the error string in a comment?

We don’t handle customer support here, but at our support forum, which we do indicate is our procedure per the Support Tab above.

Hi

Just advising all that the issue was resolved. It seems that when the user jumped to wp 3.8, all his different font technologies (cufon, @fontface, Google) were all activated. We don’t know why at this time, although it was easily corrected by turning off the fonts not in use.

One other user also reported a similar experience. It could be php related, or just a random occurrence.

In any case turning off the unneeded fonts (there are settings for all of this of course) did the trick.

Thanks for cross posting on the Support Forum Bigdrobek and reporting the matter.

So stoked with your theme – we love the ease of use and flow.

Q: Got WooCommerce all dialed in but find that the right side bar vanishes completely only on the product page.

Oh, sorry – all versions WP, Striking and Woo updated to the latest :)

kaptinlin

Hi Geebz

You may want to consider jumping to Striking responsive (which is free for licenseholders, info is on the support forum). The ease of use, flow, features, flexibility are all hugely expanded and improved.

Striking responsive, particularly in the next iteration coming out next week, has many new dedicated Woo (and other ecommerce cart) features.

If Striking 5 series is the baseline at 100%, Striking Responsive is 250% across the board. And the next version is hugely optimized (I posted some new screenshots in the responsive release thread).

Please, if you are still having an issue, may I ask you to post on the Support forum?

it seems a bug in portfolio. the function Breadcrumbs Parent Page link keep link to the home page. and the portfolio title. Im very not sure if the problem is here. Can U take a look into this?

kaptinlin

Hi

Given what you described, this is how it is supposed to work, it is not a bug. But should you have any questions about breadcrumbs or the special abilities for custom portfolio breadcrumbs or rewrite URL please register at the Striking Support forum (is free and takes about 30 seconds to do) and create a new thread requesting help with usage of the breadcrumb functions.

As we indicate in both the Item Details and Support Tabs above, we provide our theme support by way of our support forum only. The Themeforest comments page here is purely for pre-purchase questions and theme feedback.

Hi, I’m the author of Final Tiles Gallery (http://codecanyon.net/item/final-tiles-gallery-for-wordpress/5189351) and I’m writing because a customer of mine has a problem using my plugin with your theme.

The problem is that the theme seems to interfere with the output of my plugin. It looks like the theme adds extra HTML tags to the result of my shortcode. For example, here is a chunk of correct HTML:

<div class="tile  already-visible effect-zoom" style="position: absolute; left: 0px; transition: none; -webkit-transition: none; top: 0px; width: 800px; height: 450px;"><a title="Sniff! Sniff!" rel="ftg-2" class="tile-inner zoom" href="http://www.final-tiles-gallery.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/unsplash_52850935dd650_1.jpg" style="position: relative; display: block; overflow: hidden; width: 780px; height: 430px;"><img class="item" src="http://www.final-tiles-gallery.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/unsplash_52850935dd650_1-1024x576.jpg" style="width: 780px; display: block; margin: -4.5px auto auto; font-size: 10px; max-width: 9999em; height: auto;" case="4" /><div class="caption" style="width: 100%; position: absolute; height: 100%; opacity: 0; left: 0px; top: -576px; display: block;"><p>Sniff! Sniff!</p></div></a></div>

and this is what is printed using your theme:

<div class="tile "><a rel="prettyPhoto[ftg-1]" class="tile-inner " href="http://www.thefinishingtouch.co.uk/2013/09/14/katie-and-neil-wedding-day-prestwold-hall/"><img class="item" src="http://www.finishingtouchweddingphotography.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/01911-199x300.jpg" />
<div class="caption">
<p>Kate + Neil:Married</p>
</div>
<p></p></a></div>

if you look after the ‘caption’ DIV there is some weirdness.

Do you have any idea on what could cause this problem? Thanks

GreenTreeLabs

here is a clearer example, I removed classes and attributes so you can see easily the HTML structure:

correct output:
<div class="tile">
<a>
    <img src="0.jpg" />
    <div class="caption">
        <p>Kate</p>
    </div>
</a>
</div>
wrong output using your theme:
<div class="tile">
<a>
    <img src="0.jpg" />
    <div class="caption">
        <p>Kate</p>
    </div>
</a>
</div>
<p></p>

Hi

The solution in that thread is for the striking non responsive version and is for a version from 2011. The striking theme did update a lot since then and we also now have the responsive version which you might consider to try. You can download it through the link supplied in the support forum.

May i suggest if you still have issues with your plugin you create a account on our support forum and drop the question in there?

thank you.

Hi John,

May i suggest you visit our forum? we have a thread about all the plugins people are using in our theme,

http://kaptinlin.com/support/discussion/9024/need-to-know-about-your-responsive-sites-for-our-new-showcase#Item_1

Striking runs with many paid plugins without any issues. If you provide us more information through the support forum about what you are after we can try to answer your question.

Best regards,

kaptinlin

HI

To add to what Paul has indicated, there are some independent developers and designers who have expressed an interest in providing utilities/addons/plugins specifically for Striking Responsive.

We hope to co-ordinate with some of them on such options after we have moved to our new support forum, which will have a forum, ticket, and blog sections (where we post advanced tips, etc).

I am guestimating about 2 weeks or so out yet.
