This is a beautiful theme, I’m surprised there aren’t more comments and discussion about it. I am debating between purchasing this one and your Sterling theme. I like the gradients in Karma, but I like the icon shortcodes in Sterling. Any chance of getting those icons and stock images into Karma?
Thanks so much for your kind words my friend
Very sorry but we do not have plans to add the Shortcodes from Sterling into the Karma theme.
A couple questions….

Thanks so much
I just want to thank you for creating this beautiful theme with so many page templates that we can choose. Also, the ability to use the child theme is a big benefit for me.
You’re very welcome my friend.
We wish you a very happy new year.
I purchased Karma just prior to the update, and my web designer is almost finished with my site. I reviewed some of the other comments/answers, and I see that we’re supposed to be able to download the update. But, sorry to be a bit dense in this regard, when I log on to my themeforest account there is no mention anywhere of the update, and I’m not clear how to have my designer download the update. What am I missing? A quick step-by-step would be really helpful, if you please.
Absolutely no worries at all my friend.
Update notifications are not available from within ThemeForest account however a notification will be displayed by the Karma theme within your Wordpress Dashboard.
The latest files have just become available within the past few hours so it’s likely that the notification has not yet been posted within your Dashboard (sometimes takes up to 6 hours for notification to display)
Upgrading simply involves re-downloading the files from your ThemeForest account and using these files to upgrade the theme on your web server.
Here’s an article from our KnowledgeBase outlining how to update your theme to the latest version:
Please let us know if there’s anything else we can do to help.
When I try to upload the upgrade it doesn’t work. At the end of the process I receive an error with a question if I want to try again.
Is there an way to resolve this?
We’re very happy to assist you my friend.
Perhaps you are trying to install the entire download package rather than just the theme itself?
Here’s an article from our KnowledgeBase outlining a solution to this common mistake: http://bit.ly/UCnnx6

Just want to give those considering purchasing this Karma WP Template a heads up that aside from being a great professional template to use, the True Themes HelpDesk is amazing. As a newbie website developer, they were able to help me with numerous issues and in no time I had the site up and running. They even responding on Xmas!
Thanks so much for your kind words my friend! You rock!
Any chance the theme will be hi-res?
Hi There. Retina devices are still in their very infant stage so we don’t have immediate plans for this however you might be interested in checking out a plugin such as WP Retina 2x: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-retina-2x/changelog/
Please give us a shout if there is anything else we can do to help.
Glad to see the responsive update is out!
Regarding responsiveness – with Sterling, the menu bar becomes a convenient pull-down menu on smaller screens/smartphones. On Karma, the menu bar becomes a small unlabeled icon, which is click-expandable.
I actually didn’t notice the icon until the 3rd time I loaded the live preview on smartphone mode. It’s doesn’t seem as noticeable/user intuitive as the Sterling approach (combined pull-down menu).
Is there any chance the pull-down menu method from Sterling can be used on Karma?
Yes you can indeed customize your Karma theme to include a similar pull-down as Karma however you’ll need to customize your theme’s code in order to do so.
Another option is to modify your theme’s CSS to change the color of your Karma mobile nav bar.
If you need any assistance with your modifications please feel free to reach out to us via our HelpDesk and we are very happy to help you out.
How difficult would it be to customize the theme code to include that functionality? Is it something you could walk me thru on the HelpDesk, or would I have to hire an external web developer?
The modification is not very difficult.
If you have basic understanding of modifying HTML/CSS/PHP files you should have no issues at all.
Give us 24 hours and we’ll create a knowledgebase article for doing so.
Cheers my friend
Thanks for replying to my question so fast. This is absolutely one of the best themes I have ever touched. Thank you
You’re very welcome my friend. We’re so glad you’re enjoying the theme.
Had to drop you folks a quick note and thank you for this theme.
I’m not WP Pro in the slightest, but this theme is so intuitive and is really allowing me to lay out my site and page layouts to suit my content element needs.
Thanks so much for your kind words my friend, we really appreciate.
We’re so glad you’re enjoying the theme.
Regarding the updates, where can I find the change log?
The changelog is displayed within your Wordpress Dashboard under the “Karma updates” section or you can also view using this link:
As you may recall, I have been trying to decide for the past week whether to get your Sterling theme or a competitor’s theme. (I am 90% convinced to go with your theme at this point for a lot of reasons, customer service being a big one.)
And then I took a look at this one again and wondered, what are the basic differences between Sterling and Karma, besides the appearance?
Thank you again for your interest in our themes.
From the back-end Karma and Sterling are very similar and many items function exactly the same so it primarily comes down the items shown on the front-end: design, page layouts, etc.
Sorry we don’t have more detailed list but please feel free to give us a shout with any questions at all.
I just purchased the Karma theme and cant seem to upload it as a zip file through the Wordpress theme installation method which I prefer since I’m a newbie. After about 2 minutes, my admin panel is directed to my web hosts 404 error page.
Thanks in advance.
After you have downloaded the file from themeforest you have to unzip it, everything is in there, Docs, Demo content etc, and the actual theme zip file.
Sounds like your trying to upload the whole package.
Hope this helps
Cheers mate! Thanks so much for your community support. We really appreciate it.
EJGutierrez: This may or may not be helpful but it is a response I have seen many times in the week or so I’ve been here. You might want to make sure you are uploading the theme zip only and not the whole zip you downloaded from TF.
Edited to add: Ooops. Guess Antech was quicker on the keyboard than I.
Thank you so much for helping out the community. We really appreciate it.
Thanks guys. Still having some trouble though. I opened the main zip file. extacted the file and pulled out the theme only (with all the related files). When I browse from the install panel, it takes me to the folder (unzipped) The install key indicates it is supposed to be a zip file. Oh heavens!
Resolved. Thank you
Lovely. Glad to hear you are all sorted?
Do you mind posting how you were able to resolve just in case another community member happens to come across same issue?
yes, just followed the online training videos. i was just installing the whole package instead of the theme. i’m a newbie and building my website
thanks again for your help
You’re very welcome my friend.
Need to purchase your theme but have some questions:
1- Can i manage the contents below slider under the 4 boxes. Can i put pages or only posts from categories ?
2- When i activate the Homepage jQuery 2, the boxes below shows the last posts of blog. Can i choose wich content to display there ?
3- On footer, where there is the mailing list form, can i choose to not display latest post of blog
Thank you so much for your interest in Karma.
In response to your questions:
1 + 2. Yes all content on the homepage layouts is completely customizeable. The demo site simply shows recommeded content layouts. You can have 1,2,3,4 column, with image, without image, etc.
3. Footer is also fully customizable. Footer can have between 1 and 6 columns and all content is added via Wordpress Widgets.
Suppose I just install karma theme on this site Backlinksmaster.Com will it work? or do I have to re-design ?
Very sorry but we are slightly confused by your question? Can you kindly re-post with additional details so we can further assist you?
I would like to purchase this theme. The videos all show a fresh install, but I have a blog with a lot of content. Are there any potential problems that I should be aware of, and are there any compatibility issues with the plugin ‘wordpress seo’ by Yoast?
Please see our other response for your question about Yoast SEO Plugin.
As per an existing website, everything will install and run smoothly for you. You will just need to be mindful of page templates throughout your theme.
Your current theme is going to have different page templates than our themes so you will need to go into each page and re-choose your desired page template.
Hope this helps.
Thanks for the two replies. I was expecting to have to do that, but if that;’s all there is to do, I’m happy.
