APRIL 18 – STRIKING MULTIFLEX VER 1.0.3 IS AVAILABLE NOW FOR DOWNLOAD. WE ARE WP 3.9 COMPATIBLE INCL THE SHORTCODE BUTTON IN THE VISUAL EDITOR
Please also be advised that many plugins, particularly ones that relied heavily on the visual editor for utility, incl WPML, the Visual Composer, WooCommerce and many others, have to update in order to obtain full functionality. This will take some of them a few days and patience in respect of plugins is suggested.
WPML has serious issues and they recommend users do not update their Wordpress at this time. If you are using MultiFlex and WPML (3.1.4 or lower), and have updated to WP 3.9, shortcode functionality and many translation functions will cease to work. Disabling WPML restores full functionality.
As well, the core tracking at wordpress.org indicates many bugs in WP 3.9 particularly with the visual editor and many errors the wp userbase is experiencing are due to core issues at this time. An update of WP core is likely very, very soon!
March 24, 2014 – This page will be revised soon, as we catch up after all that time coding for Striking MultiFlex (it was 15 months in the making….). In the meantime we invite you to peruse the demo content (also a work-in-progress but it does have 125 pgs of content to get you started) and the links below to some of the sites that already switched to prior beta versions of Striking MultiFlex. Our motto is “Your Site Your Way” and website builders worldwide tell us that Striking MultiFlex is the theme that makes this possible.
Striking MultiFlex inludes an easy “One Touch” demo content install function with the full demo content.

FAMOUS THEME SUPPORT!
A familiar comment in many testimonials is the great Striking support. The Striking Team was one of the Themeforest pioneers in creating a separate dedicated support forum for usage questions and gathering of Striking users for trading customization ideas. Our support ethic is so good that it has been written up in 3rd party blog sites that discuss WP themes as a model of how to conduct support properly (Striking has itself received many positive independent reviews since its introduction in 2010).
Questions are answered daily on the Striking forum by our support team members. The support forum also has thousands of custom code snippets posted with solutions for almost any customization situation you are likely to encounter. Its the perfect place for a newbie to get their feet wet on customizing, and experts to find unusual solutions for that tweak they desire.
Please register on the support forum using your Themeforest name. PLEASE NOTE WE DO NOT PROVIDE support here in the Striking comments thread – that is only for prospective purchaser questions and all other questions will be redirected to the support forum found at this link:
