If you are doing a corp site using this template, can the “blog” page/links be not used (flagged to not use) without any HTML or other programming?
We’re not familiar with the Wordpress flagging feature. Can you kindly provide more details so we can better assist you? Are you referring to hiding certain pages from search engines?
Please just let us know and we’ll get back to you shortly.
hello, this is a nice theme. my question is under the lightbox hero option for the front page can this be a sliding images or static. and am i able to get the light box image to go up over slightly the white part of the site above it, so i can have a photo of a person, that just slightly part of the head is on the white so it looks like its overlapping? thanks. and is there a part of this theme that allows you to enter custom css in the style sheet for a slightly larger menu font etc.? thanks
Thanks so much for your Sterling interest.
In response to your questions:
1) The images on the Hero Homepage are static without slider.
2) We’re slight confused about your image/lightbox positioning request. Is it possible for you to send over a screenshot so we can better understand your question?
3) Yes there is a “Custom CSS ” section built into the custom Site Options panel that allows for easy insert of custom css code.
Thanks so much
Seems the calculation for the remaining days and hours are not correct at all. I made sure that the time format was set in the Settings|General and the time zone was correct (I’m on the West Coast) But changing the time zone doesn’t change anything. Anyhow, the number of days are off. See if you can take a look at that.
The countdown clock is working nicely on our end however we are happy to log into your website and have a closer look at everything.

Be Blessed Again! Any self hosted audio/video on the horizon?
PG! Nick Kroker
Thank you so much Nick!
We don’t currently have a self-hosted audio/video on the horizon however we’ll definitely consider it in a future release.
I wish you all the best my friend.
I thought I’d post a few mobile phone images for you – taken of the screen on my LG Connect android – though they are a little blurry, you can understand the issue.
Hope that helps
Thanks so much for everything buddy.
Our next release will include CSS adjustments for non-apple mobile devices.
dmitchb, good idea with the mobile pics! I’ve send a few screenshots directly off of my Samsung Nexus Galaxy to you guys via the member form!
Thanks so much mate! Really very helpful!
Please see our note below to dmitchb as per our next release.
Wish you all the best my friend.
When do you think that may be?
Hi my friend,
We’re planning to launch the next theme release within the next 2 days.
Please stay tuned
The fix applied in this latest update resolved my issue. Thanks!
You’re very welcome mate! Glad to hear you’re all sorted!
Hi, really nice theme here. Before i buy i have 2 quick questions.
Is the homepage fully customisable, say i wanted 4 columns instead of 3, thats easily changeable? Second is can i set the homepage slide show to scroll automatically? And do you have a Nivo option?
Thanks so much for your interest in Sterling.
1) Yes the homepage layout is fully customizeable. Using the built-in shortcode manager you can create a fully custom layout. (ie. 4 columns, etc)
3) Nivo slider is not currently available with this theme.
I hope this info is helpful for you. Please let us know if there’s anything else we can do to help.
Nice theme have a question, as I am a newbie is it easy to mate like the 4 colum potraits to make the as a link to click on to go to page? and like a read more but unther the thumbs?
Easy is a relative term, but the customization you’ve mentioned would be fairly easy to implement. The largest part of the customization that might be slightly complex for newbie is that you’ll need to create a new page template for the “details page” of the portfolio posts. (ie. when a user clicks on “read more” you will need to create a custom page template that displays the content for that portfolio post.
If you’ve got a basic experience with Wordpress, Page templates, and HTML /CSS you will have no worries at all.
I hope this information is helpful for you my friend.
Good theme and I’m sure it’ll get better with time as the developer makes some improvements but for right now the fact that it does not translate well to smaller screens is an issue to me. The drop down menu does not do well if you have a smaller than average screen like on a mini laptop. Theme is out for me for now but hopefully down the road it’ll become more responsive.
Thanks so much for the comments.
Can you kindly let us know more details about the laptop you’ve viewed on so we can be sure to include further testing for this device?
JEdw411, I’m with you on that note! I did, however, send them a bunch of screen shots of their theme on my droid. So hopefully these changes will be implemented soon!
This is by far one of the “nicest” responsive themes out there. A lot of the other ones are very plain
Thanks for the kind words buddy
Is there a way to use different sliders on the homepage as the two sliders offered in this theme are a little too gaudy for what I would be using the page theme for?
Sterling comes with only the homepage slider displayed on the demo site however you can absolutely customize your theme to include any type of slider to suit your needs. (ie. by using a 3rd party plugin or coding your own custom slider)
Please feel free to give us a shout with any further questions.
Trying to see your demo but it’s not loading in Firefox or Chrome.
Very sorry about that. Perhaps there was a temporary server issues of some sort? The demo site seems to be loading nicely so please have another crack at it.
I tried making the home page slider with the small video and text/button to the site with a Vimeo video but on this single slide only it does something strange to the play button. You can still start the movie by clicking on it but not by using the actual play button. This is under latest Firefox and win7

awesome work again! Sales like hot cakes
Thanks so much!
Nice Work! Very easy to customize just have 2 Questions…
1. Is it possible to set more than 1 Categorie for a Gallery-Item?
2. Is it possible to write Links to a Website into the Description of a Gallery-Item?
Thank you for this Template!
Very sorry but unfortunately the 2 gallery items you’ve mentioned are not currently available. We will definitely consider these for a future release.
I’ve purchased this theme and Karma and like how easy both are to use. Two features that I wish were a part of your themes: 1) Sub headings below H1 & H2 tags. 2) Double line buttons. Any chance you may implement these features in the future?
Thanks so much for your theme purchases – we truly appreciate it.
As per your notes:
1) Headings of any size are currently built into all of our themes. You can choose between H1-H6. You simply click on the “kitchen sink” icon within the Wordpress visual editor and this will open up the availability to select your heading size.
2) Yes we will definitely consider 2-line buttons for a future release. Do you happen to have a sample link of a style that you like?
Cheers my friend
Thank you for the quick response.
The buttons I have used are from a theme offered here on Theme Forest called Flare. It has been one of the top sellers for a few weeks.
Regarding the headers—what I really hope is to have a double line header, large h1 with a smaller sub head that look like they belong together. Again, this is a feature found in Flare and Akita found here on Theme Forest. I love your themes. Easy to use and very full featured. If they had these two features I think they’d be perfect.
Excellent. Thanks so much for the info. We’ll definitely keep these into consideration for future updates.
Having an issue with the featured image on the default template. It is larger than the background. Any quick fix? Here is an example (http://theartcentre.org/wp/you-can-help/). Templates with sidebars appear normal.
The featured images are set to auto-resize so this should be a very simple fix. We’re happy to investigate further and help resolve the issue.

I cannot upload this theme. Have done this several times before with other themes and it always worked. What could I try to make it work? Thanks a lot!
