Hi there,

First of all, thank for purchasing symplex.

I just upload version 1.1 to themefoest. It have made a lot small tweaks and fix some small bugs that i have found . You can upgrade your symplex to it before asking the question.Learn from the document about how to updating the symplex. The pagination support for the portfolio sortable page is the most important improved in this version. And the animation for page has changed. If you hope your portfolio sortable page can use pagination. Just upgrade it. And If you have any issues with symplex, please email me: jimbachen at kaptinlin.com . I will reply you asap. Also any suggestion and comments will be welcomed. Your words will make symplex better and better. Hope you will enjoy symplex. Thanks. Best Regards, KaptinLin

Kaptinlin-

I had to purchase this—- couldn’t resist. The transition is still in process, but went fairly smooth.

Solid theme as also; packed with flexibility and customizations.

Loving it!

kaptinlin

Thanks for your purchasing.

Do you have some problem in the transition? Just send a mail to me in:

I’ll help you.

I really am very pleased with this theme. I wasn’t expecting so many options when I switched my theme to Symplex. The options Symplex provides make working with it, and Wordpress in general, much more comfortable. It’s obvious a lot of work was put into this and the end result is worthy of praise. Thanks so much for this Kaptinlin!

By the by, I tried sending you a few emails. I don’t think any of them got through though… if they did then sorry for spamming you four times. Haha

Since I don’t think that worked out, I guess I’ll ask here instead. First off, the theme works very well with bbPress 2.0 so far! No issues! So that’s great news. The problem I haven’t been able to figure out though…

I’m sure I’m just overlooking it but if I am then I’ve overlooked it about 100 times now so maybe you can help me out here. Above every page I see there is a description of the page but it only displays the default text that I can change it in the administrative panel. I’m not sure where exactly I need to look in order to change this default text.

“No Custom Blog Description Set, You can set this in the Administration Panel of the Theme.”

I’m sure I’m just being as blind as a bat and missing something simple, so sorry for that. I’ve read the documentation but couldn’t find anything relevant to this problem! Any chance you can help me out here Kaptinlin?

kaptinlin

Thanks for your praising. I’m very glad to hear that you like Symplex. I’m very sorry for that I left a wrong email in the last reply. There are no problem with your mail. It’s my mistake. So you can send mails to here with everything about Symplex:

jimbachen at kaptinlin.com

For the question:By default, Symplex will display the description of your site in header, you can set it by the “Tagline” option in the page of Setting->General.

Is the Symplex work well in bbpress? That’s good, and I want to do some more support for bbpress and the bbpress plugin of wordpress Do you have some good ideas? Just send a mail to me : ).

hi,

i am trying to make up my mind to choose between striking or symplex theme… they share tons of features…

so could you please list their main differences to help my decision ???

so here is my draft quick list :

- symplex has color styles (striking doesn’t) - striking has widget areas in header, footer etc (symplex ???) - other differences ???

i am looking forward in working with either of them :-)

thx! tasos from greece

kaptinlin

Hi

Symplex and Striking have been built in the same framework. So we can say they are similar in the functions. Symplex has color styles that’s because I want to show more artistic quality in it. Both of them have a lot of customize options. You can change the site to any style that you want by using Symplex or Striking easily.

I think the most important difference between Symplex and Striking is design. Symplex is creative and Symplex is fresh. If you need show some designs, some products, and others like ecommerce, Symplex will be more suitable. If you need a fresh site like company home, Striking will be better. You can choose them by your purpose.

hi again,

some more questions (for both symplex & striking) before decision :

- how many widget areas are supported & where (header, etc) ?

- do they support shortcodes in widgets ?

- do fonts support the greek lang ?

- can i build a multi-lingual site using these themes ? (en + gr + ?)

thx !!!

kaptinlin

Hi

For the questions:

- You can use widget in sidebar, footer and sub footer, of course support shortcode, you can also use shortcode in topbar html area.

- I think they will do well by greek lang, if not, you can add greek lang font by reading document.

- Symplex and Striking are multi ready and support WPML plugin.

Your theme does not work on IE. Not even your demo theme. IE10 – slideshow doesn’t work at all.

kaptinlin

I’m sorry, IE 10 is still in preview, Symplex will support it when IE 10 has been released. And I have test my demo site in IE7 -9, it works well. If you need my help during your using, just send a mail to me and told me more details.

Hello

On the anything slider, when I change the font to a cufon font all the content messes up, the things placed on the right hand side ([one_half_last]) drops lower than the things on the left.

Please could you tell me the font you used on the demo for the ‘anything slider’?

kaptinlin

Hi

I have use a cufon font named ‘Museo’ in demo, if it still has a problem, you can add custom css code in ‘Symplex->Custom’ to change text font-size in anything slider, for example:

slidetext p{font-size:13px;}

If it still can’t work well after you have tried these way, just send a mail to me:

Your theme does not work on IE 9 . Not even your demo here on themeforest.

hi,

some more questions please :

- is there a support forum just for symplex ? the support link in themeforest page points to striking theme forum, not symplex forum

- is there an auto notification alert for theme updates ? and an easy way for us to run upgrades as you continue fixing/adding features :-) ?

- is any of the sliders capable of (auto) loading content (title, desc, image, link) from a “featured” blog/protfolio category ?

- will there be any more blog loop variations ? (2-3 columns etc.)

- do you offer (paid) customization if we need to integrate any extra plugins into the theme (mainly css stuff to much the overall look & feel)

- more menu options (like mega menu stuff etc.) would also be great !!!

- a map of theme layout would be extremelly helpful – showing header, content, footer, sidebars & (most of all) widgetizable areas

- and finally, just an idea, integrate shortcodes & widgets, so you offer one single set of functionality, to be used as shortcode and widget (1 set = 2 ways to use it)

sorry for asking tooooo much :-)

its a great theme so it raises our expectations so high :-) – especially after striking theme …srtiking success

thx

kaptinlin

Hi

Thanks for your attention

For the question:

- yes, I will add the symplex category in the forum which the support link in themeforest page points to.

- yes, you can set the sliders with posts category. Of course, all of the 3 types could.

- sorry, now Symplex only support 1 columns blog loop, but I will add more types (2,3,and more) in the furture.

- I will add some plugins support which people usually use in symplex constantly, and I can help you to solve problems when you use any other plugins. But css stuff is a heavy work, if I have enough time, I will be very glad to help you. And you will add your offer in the customize part of forum, some activists can help you too.

- ok, it’s a good idea, I will add it in future.

- would you need a map like footer columns in Symplex->Footer of admin panel.

- yes, it’s a good idea, but need a lot of work to change it, I will bring it in next theme.

hope the answer aboving can help you, and if you have other quesions about Symplex, just send a mail to

I have a pre-sale question:

Is it possible to use audio (MP3) content instead of video content, and is there an audio player included with the theme?

thanks in advance Michiel

kaptinlin

Hi Michiel

Happy Halloween

Yes, Symplex has support MP3 & ogg . You can use it by the shortcode like:

[audio mp3=”http://mediaelementjs.com/media/AirReview-Landmarks-02-ChasingCorporate.mp3” width=”400” height=”30”]

You can see the example here:

I’m really enjoying this theme! It has become my favorite out of the ones I have purchased. I love the fact that there are codes on the sample site that I can just copy and paste into mine! I also had one issue with linking a button, I e-mailed and had the issue resolved in less than 24 hours! Keep up the good work and thank you!!! http://qualityarticles.org

hi,

while checking demo admin bg & color settings… i want to ask if we can change background colors for whole page, menu bar, header, footer, subfooter, sidebars & content (i mean bg colors – not only text/link colors) – thus creating our complete new color style :-)

also the integration of a full screen slider & a gallery would be so much appreciated !!!... what would you suggest to address that ?

thx, tasos

kaptinlin

Hi tasos

Symplex has prepared some images and color’s file in ‘colors’ folder, you can customize them and create your new color style. And if you need to do depth customizing, just tell me, I will help you to complete it.

About the full screen slider & gallery, maybe not fit this theme (for my thinking), but if you have a good idea, you can show me the example. I think your imagination can help me.

Thanks for your suggestion!

Regards
Kaptinlin

tasoskouk

thx for your answer !

... but a question remains : can background colors be changed from theme admin or do we have to make changes to the color file ? (that might be also very easy, i assume)

of course images should be copied + changed in that folder to match new colors

also the integration of gallery functionality in such a great theme is a must, in my opinion :-) if we have lots of images we cannot afford to make portfolios and keep adding pictures 1-by-1 on a portfolio basis

regards, tasos

kaptinlin

Hi tasos,

Sorry, i miss your question.

You can change the color just through admin panel.

Regards,
KaptinLin

tasoskouk

ok, i am asking if we can change all background colors through admin panel (all header, footer, sidebar, content bg colors) – not text/link colors but background colors…

and if we can upload our own bg images as well

thx !!!!!

kaptinlin

Yes, all you says is possible.

I hope you can help me test and perfect this function, and I think it will be a great help for everyone. Thanks.

Hi Kaptinlin!

First of all,i have to say i really like this theme and i’m thinking about purchasing it. I see you made the “Products” page.Any chance you tested it with WP e-commerce plugin? I noticed some templates (here on TF) that come bundled with that plugin.It would be a awesome feature.

Regards,

T.

kaptinlin

Hi titian

Now the ‘Products’ page is created by the shortcode of Symplex. It’s a portfolio page. I have tested Wp e-commerce and other ecommoerce plugin like jigoshop etc. They could work in Symplex but need some customize. E-commerce plugin support has already been in my work schedule. Wait for a weeks, Symplex will bring you good experience about ecommerce.
