Is it possible to assign the home page as the blog page?

I’m looking at this theme for a personal blog and absolutely love it, but if I can’t assign the home page as the blog it’s not going to work.

Although I just might buy this theme any way. I love it, One of the best!

Thanks!

Hi 45media,

With blog posts shortcode (avaiable after version 1.5), you can set blog as front page. see the link below

Just want to say thank you for a PREMIUM theme which makes the other offerings look like they were created by toddlers! Bought it this morning and my site is up and running. http://johankoke.com

My site needs to have more content uploaded but this will do for now. I need some sleep!

Thank you, thank you!

Just noticed that if I switch the slider view for the home page to JQeury Nivo, only 2 images show up and not the 4 that I uploaded so far.

Any help would be much appreciated

I’m online and thought I’ll delete the cache in the meantime but that didn’t fix the problem. Yes, you are most welcome to link to my site but I’m still alving away to add content ;-)

Just wanted to say this is fantastic, kudos! Keep on good work. Really looking forward to the multilingual support.

kaptinlin

Thank you.

Looks like an improvement on the inFocus theme. I can’t decide between the two, although this one has a choice of three sliders for the home page, which is a bonus. Any other benefits over the inFocus?

kaptinlin

Hi themester,
I really like the design of inFocus. But i have spend more time on the customizable that you can made the site according to your wish.

Hi,

Planing to buy this very good them, but is it possible to Link to posts from the sliding Images which are displayed by the Nivo Slider? Performance on Ipad could also be improved, especially the sliders. They seem to run with 15fps max. And, can I add one image instead the headline Text and the small Icon you use on the startpage for each of the 6 featured posts?

regards

kaptinlin

hi andersoneo,
You can link the post/page/portfolio item from the sliding images. Also you can input the link manual.

For nivo slider performance on ipad, may be you can reduce the number of segments in which the image will be sliced.

And you can fill anything you like to the front page.

Regards,
Kaptinlin

Some questions and thoughts:

Could a slider shortcode for using inside pages be created?

The styled boxes can have several shapes, sizes and colors?

Can a different type of FAQ page can be created, without toggle?

A shortcode for dropcaps would be nice, w/out background.

In the header to be able to insert pictures and pictures+text not only text.

To create a template for landing/capture/squeeze page.

Can we have larger thumbnails for posts?

Thank you, Costin

kaptinlin

Hi costin,

1. no

2. only one shape as you seen, but you can style with sizes and colors.

3. of course.

4. w/out background? I can’t get it. The shortcode of dropcaps you can see here

5. yes. you can insert html you want.

6. template for landing/capture/squeeze page? You mean sample code?

7. yes. you can change the size of thumbnails for posts through admin panel.

Kaptinlin

I tried to add something like you have on the front page with the 3 columns and the icons using the code from your services page but the spacing between the icon and the heading is all weird. I have a sidebar on the front page of my site. You can see it at http://www.kerryemrich.com/

I’m trying to add a login/register modal form to the navigation menu, but can’t seem to figure out where to place the wp_loginout() and wp_register() to make it show in the navigation.

Can you point me in the right direction?

Thanks

kaptinlin

Hi am5555,

Thank you for purchasing Striking.

You should use Wordpress custom menus for the links.

First, go to “Striking” -> “General” subpane to enable Wordpress Built-in Menu.

Then, go to “Appearance” -> “Menus” to configure the navigation.

You can use Custom links for loginout and register.

Learn more from official document here.

Hello Kaptinlin,

I really like your new theme! I have one question. I really need a customizable side bar that operates like this one: http://thethemes.eu/preview/distinct/portfolio-2 It does not need to employ ajax per se but I need it to do the same thing. Can I accomplish this with ease with your theme? I am not an expert with WP but I have used it before. Is your backend pretty comprehensive and user friendly for the most part?

Thanks! mm

kaptinlin

Hi magicmermaid,

Thank you.

You can use “Custom Menu” widget for the demand. but no ajax support.

The admin panels is extreme clean and nice with fully document support. If you have any question about using the theme, you can contact me for the help.

KaptinLin

Hi, again

One thing I still haven’t figured out is how to place the social icons side-by-side as you have managed in your footer. (Under “Keep in Touch”)

Could you please point me in the right direction?

/RonnyN

kaptinlin

Hi ronnyhus,

For Social Icons, you can follow the steps below:

1) Go to “Appearance” -> “Widgets” subpanel.

2) drag and drop “Striking – Social icons” to the sidebar you want on the right.

3) Click the Edit link on the widget to configature the widget.

4) Hold down the ctrl or shift key to make multiple selections for the icons.

5) Then you will see the url options appear in the bottom of the widget.

6) Click “Save” after configuration, you will see it works.

Hi guys,

It’s a long time after i upload version 1.5 to themeforest. But it seems it won’t be approved soon.

Since version 1.5 have made a lot changes including fixed some bugs, you should update it immediately.

If you want a copy of version 1.5, please email me via my ThemeForest profile page (bottom of the right column) that i can check whether you have purchased Striking.

If it is not urgent, just wait for the review. It maybe available after one or two days?

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Regards,
KaptinLin

kaptinlin

Now version 1.5.1 is available.

Thanks to the reviewer’s work.

KaptinLin

This is hands down the best theme I have ever worked with for Wordpress and the support is first-rate. Thanks for the phenomenal work. I am really enjoying the flexibility offered by your very well-considered admin interface. It goes much deeper thanks to the very granular control options for colors, fonts, and much more. I can’t say enough what a pleasure it is to use this theme after some less pleasant experiences recently. Your admin framework is nothing short of amazing and my site looks beautiful!

Hi repeater75,

Thank you! Much appreciated for your comment!

Congratulations on the theme that I bought it as soon as seen. Really good and very well customizable.

Do you have howto that can help a beginner like me.

For example – How to rebuild your home and/or your demo pages. It would be very interesting and would enrich the overall documentation.

How do I turn the slider on the homepage. Need to create a slider item or set something.

After creating a slider item page gives me this message:

You have no rights to access this content. Why.

Where you enter the URL of the photo in the slider.

I would like more information on the use of the slider. They can also be used on other pages.

Thanks

kaptinlin

hi numodica,

Thank you.And much appreciated for you suggestion.

I will add update the document for explaining how to use Striking through diagrams. Please look forward to it.

Thank you again.

Regards,
KaptinLin

Hi kaptilin,

What about adding easily switchable sections like done here http://themeforest.net/item/corporate-easy-ready-in-5-minutes-/129123 ? I would pay even 10 or 15$ more for the theme if it would provide such functions.

kaptinlin

Hi andersoneo,

Thank you for your kind attention. Striking keep customization in mind. I don’t want restrict your creativity. You can write various pages with the help of shortcode. Also include the page you linked.

If you confused with it, please email me, I will help you setting up you homepage. And no need for more pay. :)

Best regards,
Kaptinlin
