Many many thanks folks @ Striking.
I believe you all (James, Paul and the team) deserve not 5 but 6 stars for the continuos development efforts, the incredible patience to help support the community and striking users and for the incredible solutions you have been able to come up with in your Striking theme (now Striking multiflex).
Striking has become in my opinion the most versatile and solid theme for wp.
Keep going the good job, you have lots of fan and supporters.
Thank you for kind words and thoughts about Striking. I and Striking Team work hard. Always have and always will.
MultiFlex = Your Site Your Way!
This theme is without doubt the best on the market! Their support is AMAZING! I have not come across another theme with so many features!
BIG thanks to all the hard work by these guys!
Regards Amanda McInerney
I know your site as James tell me of and that Paul helps with some explore of features. Glad you are doing and thank you for thoughts. Always important when designers recognize theme quality and function.
What a wonderful update!!! thanks
One question: Do you know if there is a way to display future portfolio items on the site? I use the portfolio for event system in my site. I would like to assign portfolio for the event day (May 12 2014) but the site won’t display it in the portfolio widget list.
I’ve found this plugin (http://wordpress.org/plugins/the-future-is-now/) that enable to display future post but it doesn’t work on the portfolio category in Striking theme. Do you know if there is a way that I can display the future portfolio items on the site?
Thanks a million!
Thanks for kind words. MultiFlex much bigger then when first start on creating over year ago – it is nice update for free! Take long time to build theme with this much function, but think worth it.
Question please post at forum, and team will help. We examine.
Thanks SO much for your ultra fast response! Striking MultiFlex is Awesome! Your efforts and dedicated work on it is highly appreciated by me and I’m sure that by thousand of other satisfied users
I’ve just post the question in your support forum. Thanks so much!
And I think one of our other users already provided an answer, and no plugin required. Please indicate in the thread how it works out.
I am off for a little while to “go howl at the sky” aka stress relief!
I hope you gave us a 5 star rating for theme quality on your Themeforest Downloads page (I am not too proud to beg…....)
Hi Striking Team!
Just wanted to say thank you for the marvelous theme. I have done a lot of research, and decided for Striking, in 2012.
Since then I have experienced two other themes, but they were just beautifull, to build the site it was a nightmare.
I have bought 4 Striking licenses, and I’m completelly satisfied with the theme and support. If anyone asks me, I always recomend Striking.
(and the fourth is to a friend, it’s quite simple, but the theme I’ve experienced first was so enerving and without tools that I abandoned it and bought other Striking license).
Many thanks and kind regards, you are the best.
Thank you for your thoughts. Your sites feature such amazing photography. You have done very nice things with our theme. Your support is greatly appreciated.
I have rated Striking with 5 stars, but just once. I think Theme Forest should allow me to rate again with 5 stars if I buy the theme again. It’s a shame to see your score spoiled by some immature people.
Striking has amazing tools that make your life much easier, the support is great, I always have my doubts answered.
I’ve tried other themes, but it’s impossible to use them after working with Striking.
Sometimes I take a look at the raking of Theme Forest and just can’t understand why themes with much less tools and facilities are top.
Best Wishes, James, you guys always acted like angels, solving all my problems and doubts, and hope soon Striking comes back to a top ranking position.
I just got another update notification has it changed since v1.01 ? i already downloaded the update so not sure why its telling me again there is another update ?
Normally you are checking the forum and we have been posting updates on what we are doing.
Yes, there is another update. We are tring to be proactive, since MultiFlex is still new, and push releases out with tweaks per user suggestions, and bug fixes, asap rather then holding onto them until we have a large accumulation.
MultiFlex 1.0.2 was a big update, and 18.104.22.168 & 22.214.171.124 are similar to overnight builds. We did not even submit .2.1 to Themeforest, just via the api, but .2.2 we submitted as a full build.
Our intent is to show users we are reacting quickly, and the internal update function within the theme only takes a few seconds to update a site.
If you need any more information, you should follow the forum thread for the 1.0.2 series:
See you at the forum Mitch!
Being proactive is great… but if you can just update the change log on the description page also when the updates are pushed to Envato that would be great, i actually rely on them and its the first thing i look at when i get notifed
Keep up the good work.
Thank you for an amazing theme.
This theme has loads of functionality and highly customizable. The team is amazing and so helpful, always willing to go the extra mile.
I recommend this phenomenal theme. You will be amazed by the power of it.
Thank you Striking Team.
This is an amazing theme. I have bought two Striking licences now and am even more impressed by this versatile and feature packed theme the second time around. The Customer Support is second to none, super fast, efficient and goes the extra mile to sort out problems and fix them. I cannot recommend highly enough.
A 5 star theme.
I currently have a wp site using your symplex. I’d like to maybe switch it to striking. Would all the shrot codes I have setup (most portfolio, galleries,columns,c all to actions) all still work or would I need to resetup all of these again? Would all my portfolio items still be accessable or will they eneed to be resetup again?
Thanks for using symplex. It’s good decision that you will made for switching symplex to striking multiflex. I think it’s easy to deal with the migration because they are using the same backend. All your portfolio items will be accessable so you don’t need resetup again but you may need do some small tweaks. Also you may need update some shortcodes as well. Hopeful that is not much different.
Remember backup your wordpress before do it. We will be here if you have any problems.
This comment is long overdue. I’ve been using the Striking theme since last June. It is an INCREDIBLE theme. I seriously am so glad I decided to go with this theme for my site. I can’t imagine any other theme. It just offers the user so many options for personalization. And I love the slider options. I thought they were great when I had the older version of Striking. The newest version FAR surpasses what I thought would be possible for a theme to do. Truly, if you only choose one theme to have for your site forever, this is the one! With all of the options, you’ll never get bored. Ever.
I have done 20+ sites using STRIKING and have converted all of them to the new MultiFlex. It is AWESOME. It has everything a theme needs to make a great website. I have tried others and NOTHING beats this one! Beyond the flexibility of the theme, is the TERRIFIC SUPPORT provided by the team! They go BEYOND EXPECTATIONS!!!! No one out there can come close to them. Support after installation is critical these days and this team comes through. I rate them a 10!
I just wish those who have technical questions would read and then go to your support forum for answers.
Hi this Gajendrakumar M from Web Express,
Just now we have purchased the Striking Multiflex theme.
Item Purchase Code: [code removed]
There are 4 items in the demo folder, which demo file we have to upload.
For sub-domains can we use striking child theme ?
Kindly help me to get through, this is my first try.
Thanks & Regards
Your comment has been removed because you put your purchase code into your comment!!
This is like publishing the combination to a safe! It is supposed to be private and should never be publickly revealed.
Themeforest will now have to cancel your existing purchase code and issue a new one in order to prevent piracy.
Yes, you can if you wish. The choice is yours. Generally there is very little reason to use a child theme with MultiFlex, as the theme contains custom css and js fields.
Should you have any further questions about usage, as per our support policy noted in the Support Tab above, please go to our support forum, register and post your questions and a member of the support team will assist you.
before buying the theme I wanted to know if there is an option to build the home page or any other page with only shortcodes so that I can do as I want.
Also, I hope I won’t have a problem wuth the Hebrew language.
Thank you for inquiring about MultiFlex.
MultiFlex is fully RTL compatible. So use with Hebrew if it is the native language in the dash is not an issue. The theme auto detects the rtl language.
Any page can be built only with shortcodes. I am wondering if you mean built only with widgets? 12 of the widgets are shortcoded but not every single widget that exists.
If you go to this page:
Thanks! The shortcodes I mean for the home page since I don’t want to use any of the layouts in tha demo.
Your site homepage can look and be customized however you desire.
If you buy the theme, I suggest that you immediately create a custom page and make it your site homepage, rather then using our quickstart homepage panel.
Custom pages have more features, and access to the Page General Options metabox (which is where you have page level control of appearence for backgrounds, colors, functions, etc). The default hompage panel lacks this, but it is only intended a quickstarter type page to get a user up and running quickly.
All our pages are 100% customizable using our custom shortcode generator. This link gives you a snapshot of all of the functionality of the shortcode generator – its ease of use and functionality are part of the reason we are so highly rated as a theme:
As a web developer, I have never come across such a robust and sound theme.
The writers do a great job shortcoding and widgetizing theme elements to give it more versatility and flexibility than any other theme I know. In fact, it’s strong enough that I can do some projects in Wordpress that I would not have normally considered doing on that platform.
Kudos and keep it up!
This is by far the most customisable theme I have used. I have been able to redesign my company website many times to match the branding. The support is first class and the theme is always updated. If you are looking for a solid foundation for your website then look no further, Striking MultiFlex is your theme.
Great theme. Thanks!
1) how come default WP support is not there anymore for embedding videos. on a default theme this video auto embeds: http://vjs.zencdn.net/v/oceans.mp4 but with this theme it does not.
2) the video shortcode – can we have it auto play the video?
We never had any particular reason to support the wp auto embed. It is something a theme developer has to do, and since we have our own shortcodes for audio and video we never bothered.
But as we always give good attention to our user requests, likely in the next update we will add flters to support the wp auto embed functionality.
The html 5 video shortcode has autoplay in it. The shortcode has a ton of attributes incl autoplay, preload, poster image, display of controls, and full mobile support settings for web devices such as iphones and android devices.
Caspian, should you have any further questions we ask, per our policy outlined in the Support Tab above (and in our documentation, and in the Item Details tab), that you post at our support forum. All theme related support is there, and had you posted at the forum your question would have been addressed many hours ago.
Thank you for your thoughts on the theme. More updates of features are on the way (your request for the auto embed included), and hopefully you found your way to giving us a 5 star rating!
On my dashboard I can see version 126.96.36.199 is available but currently Themeforest’s download is version 188.8.131.52. My theme will not allow me to automatically download the file, when will the newest version be uploaded the Themeforest?
I would ask that you post at the forum. I want to determine why you cannot use the internal theme update function. Is even the button to download the “nightly build” not functional? Did you input your purchase code into the correct field and save the panel before attempting the update? I wonder if your host security is blocking access to the update api we maintain?
Please register at the forum using your same name as here at Themeforest, and I will reply to you.
We have revoked the themeforest update as we have yet another build coming out I think tomorrow with an exciting new feature, some other new settings for diff functions, fulfillment of the auto embed for the user above, fulfillment of some other user requests for new functions in the carousel, and two small bugs to be squashed.
That build 184.108.40.206 will definitely be submitted to TF as well as via the update api.
I’m a non-techie. And I am a little intimidated by the product but definitely in awe of Striking MR’s awesomeness. The developers are surely genius. I just finished reviewing the changes and can’t wait to get started on updating my site. This release is chock full of goodness. New product, new vision. Oh and I’m very impressed and appreciative that you guys made this spanking cool new-ness a release and not a separate product.
i’ve been using striking for 3 years now and it’s simply amazing!
support has always been top-notch by kappi, james and paul and it’s still getting updated too this day. even a full responsive overhaul included!!
it’s the best
Striking MultiFlex’s quality, flexibility and customizability, along with superb documentation and support from the authors and community, are second to none. I wish all WordPress themes were like this. On second thought, scratch that.
Striking MultiFlex is unique and I want the authors to keep it that way. It really is ThemeForest’s best kept secret.
Keep up the great work, Kap, James and Paul.
