Hi! I think that this theme is the best theme of WP. I bought some themes like Avada, Hairpress, but this theme is the best. I like design of this theme. All features i need I found in this theme. Big THANK Striking Team !!!
Your welcome!! Thank you for your kind words, and we are glad Striking MultiFlex has earned your trust.
is there some page where we can see what is new and fixed in newest version of this excellent theme?
The changelog included in the theme download contains a list of the adjustments. We will have some new info at the forum and in the revised Item Details page here at Themeforest soon as well.
Hi, It’s great to see the responsive version out and will update my sites in coming weeks. I will add however that the demo’s logo & homepage design for this responsive version of the theme is not so good, I’d suggest you improve this or it will probably hurt your sales some, I hope not because I know it’s a nice theme after using it twice. All the Best -
Thank you for your thoughts. The current demo content is the installable content that actually comes with the package. We have been focused on support after the release, and are going to turn over the next few days to making the TF demo content more “flashy”, particularly the front page. The content in their at the moment is just placeholder content.
Here is my responsive striking website if you want to add it to your list of responsive sites:
I will, and can you add your site to the list of Responsive Sites at the forum?
Would love to but I’m not sure where you are talking about.
Sorry for the late response. We have a thread at the forum for posting about sites:
As well, MultiFlex includes the fotorama slider, and you may want to consider using it for your homepage slideshow. It gives the ability to have full page slides, and show images in a larger more focused size.
If you have any questions about this, post on the forum and I or Paul will respond.
Had a quick question/advice
None of the facebook widgets are showing up on my sidebar. It’s just a blank space. Any suggestions. Thanks
A couple of things:
a) we don’t have a facebook widget! But I am thinking perhaps you are using Ad-aware or Ghostery in your browser, which would block widgets from social sites depending on what options you enabled.
b) We provide our product support over at our support forum, which is indicated in the Support Tab above per Themeforest rules. Can you please surf over to the forum (the link is in the Support Tab) and post a thread and we will assist you there with this issue.
Please post a url in the thread so we can surf to the page, and examine it with our developer tools, although I suspect the problem is not theme related. If it is a facebook plugin or something you obtained elsewhere, we will still hop over and give it a look and give you some feedback.
Striking continues to be exceptionally stable, fast, and flexible with unmatched customer support!
Glad to hear!
There is a little bug with titles when blog is not in one column mode.
Titles are not wrapped, they are cropped (see link http://i.imgur.com/mfV6Bzu.png) so because of that I cannot update my site with new version
That problem doesn’t exists in non-responsive version of striking.
Your right! When did that happen!! LOL. Its just a small css issue that occurs in that blog variation in viewports 568>. We will address it in the next update.
Thanks for pointing it out.
If I may impose, in the future, can you report these at the support forum instead? Had I not been over here to help another developer with a matter no one would have been at Themeforest until early next week – > we indicate in the Support Tab above we provide all our support at the Support forum, which is attended to constantly every day. Themeforest we visit every now and then, but its simply not where we tend for support issues.
Yes, next time I will put it on support forum, thanks!
It is fixed in version 1.0.2, which I noted in the prerelease thread a while ago. Actually, it was not an error, but a deliberate thing by Kaptinlin. So what we have done in the next release, is give the user two choices – to have the icon inline, or have the text right justified as in the old Striking style. There is a new setting where one choosed the style, in the shortcode.
Thank you for finding and reporting, and cross posting.
Let me say first my comment comes from the perspective of a total novice when it comes to web development. I looked at a lot of themes, even purchased a few only to become frustrated with the process of building a site with little or no experience. Just when I was about to give up I ran across the Striking template. I hung around the on the striking forum for a bit and had the chance to see some stunning sites built on the Striking theme. I was more than impressed but I couldn’t shake that fact that I’m a novice. But what I noticed while hanging out in the support forum was the responsiveness of the developers to questions from end users. I knew if I were to buy this template that’s what I would need to get from point A to point B. So after witnessing their strong support for the product I purchased the Striking theme. The timing was right as they were just introducing a responsive version, which I need, but honestly didn’t know what it was at the time. Anyway for those who might shy away because you don’t have a lot of experience, think again. With Striking I had what I consider a very usable site published and online in 48 hrs. I might add it was so much better then the previous site that I payed to developed. Mind you I think nothing beats a good developer even if you are using a theme. The end result was me having a very usable site in no time, with only one issue involving a slider. And that issue was resolved by support with in 8 hours of my posing the question for help. another really cool feature is that Striking works so well with so many cool plugins. You click they work. I really didn’t want to struggle with getting simple things to work. And with striking it was plug and play for me. That said there’s still a lot for me to learn about web development to improve my site. The latest Striking theme has demo content, tutorials and everything you need to enhance your site. At the end of the day all that matters is does your site serve the purpose it was intended for? With striking my clients and prospective clients have been pleased with my offering. Money is coming in….....thanks to Striking, mission accomplished.
You can see my work in progress here www.thecaptureexperts.com
Glad you had great success with Striking MultiFlex and look forward to seeing your site evolve. You are off to a great start for a complete newbie!
Hi James and the gang! In the process of building a new site using Striking. I wonder if you can point me in the right place to answer two questions. I have spent time looking for answers on the forum and just have not been able to find, what I hope, are some simple solutions.
1) I would like my site title (not a logo) to be centered not only when I look at the site on the big screen, but also on my iPhone, i.e. when mobile. The site title seems to be not really in the center. It looks that way (sort of ) now because I increased the font size.
2) When viewing the site in Mobile, the background behind the navigation pull down menu turns blue. For the life of me, I cannot find where to change this color.
As always, thanks for your help. I also welcome an answer from any other Striking user who can help!
I think I changed the color from blue to white. But still I am not sure how I did that. The whole header area with site title and tag is not looking good on my iPhone yet, though.
1) If you center your site logo and title in the desktop view (they are left aligned by default), you have to use viewport css (also known as viewpoint, and media only) to specify that it only be centered for viewports 768> as we center the logo and title by default in the viewports less then that.
If you did not use the correct responsive css, then once in a mobile viewport, your custom css, having not specified the viewport, will actually throw the logo and title off center.
2) Change your header background from “100%” auto to “cover.” Then your background will cover the whole header area.
Tim, if I may impose upon you (I know its tough to teach an old dog new tricks, and I also remember you have been with Striking since about 1 day after launch all the way back in 2010…. btw, belated Happy New Year) if you have a need of any followup can you post at the support forum?
Long time getting back to say thank you for the help! This is the best theme (theme and support) here on Themeforest!
Thank you for saying such. Given how many themes you own and have worked with these words are much appreciated.
I saw you post in the thread were we indicated the temp fix for the logo element (which we shamefully admit we forgot to include in the skin.php file – we were making some changes to the loading order, cutting and pasting numerous lines, and simply forgot the “paste” part for the logo margin, so the css is there in the css file doing absolutely nothing at this moment! )
Of course this will be corrected in MultiFlex 1.0.2 which is almost ready for prime time!
This theme is exactly what I’m looking for as I need a nice, premium multisite WP theme. The only thing I must have that I don’t see in the demo is a top bar for a secondary menu and social icons. I see some sample sites that have this.
Is that an option for this theme to add a top of page menu above the logo with widgets? If not, do you offer paid customization to add this?
The new demo site we building does not yet have any content in the top header area, which has 3 settings -> use as a pure html content area, set for language flags (auto detection) for either wpml or qtranslate, or use as a widget area, in which case you could put the Striking Social Icons widget into it, or a Custom menu widget, or both.
We still have content to put into our demo, such as our sticky header, sticky sidebar and sticky footer options, the Top and Sub Footer Widget areas (which has a preset menu option as one of its selections), the product carousel (for ecommerce plugsin such as Woo and Easy Digital Downloads), etc.
I should advise you that we did not design the top widget area to specifically hold a menu (but we did design it to hold widgets) and most users who want some links up there use the html option typically, and put the links in using “a” tags, within a styled div.
We also do paid customization for this should you not like the theme defaults, although they can easily be made to work for you.
Striking MultiFlex is extremely powerful, and of special note, flexible and customizable. It can be made to dance to almost any tune.
Thank you for inquiry into Striking!
Well that all sounds good enough to me! If it can take a text widget up there, it can do anything. I also didn’t realize it had a ‘sticky’ footer as well as sticky header and I’ve been looking for that on TF for a long time. Excited to use this theme. Going to purchase it today. Thank you.
Our biggest issue is that we never designed MultiFlex to use all of its features in one website! The goal was to give any user choice, particularly as we have many, many designers who use our theme, and of course they don’t want all their websites to appear the same.
So we are struggling with building “one” demo to illustrate all of its features. One could have worse problems to deal with!
But of course the sticky functions are all designed to be used at the same time.
As for the Top Header Area, it can either be set to widget mode and you utilize a text widget, or html mode in which case you can design the content for it exactly as you would the body content in the main editor. So either way one can create horizontally spaced content such as links, etc.
Look forward to seeing a purchase badge beside your name!
I just bought it and already installed it! Great so far. I already have a future feature request that would make it perfect, especially for designers (I am one too) who want to make it look different. What would be awesome is to be able to control the logo alignment (left, center, right) and if the menu stays besides the logo as it is by default, or float underneath the logo. Those two things would be amazing. I need this site to have a centered logo with menu underneath so I’m going to have it customized. But would love to be able to choose that layout the same way we choose the footer layout by clicking a layout and it sets it up. I love this theme so far though- super easy!
Everything is going very smoothly on this WP theme so far- really like it! I have a multisite question. Does this theme offer any type of native domain mapping? That is the only part I’m having trouble with. Do you have any recommendations for the easiest way to map domains to sub-sites?
Can you please hop over to the forum and register, and then post these questions? I am on my way out the door, but another member of the team will assist you.
We do not offer any theme support via the comments thread here at Themeforest. There are a number of reasons for this, chief amongst them is that then all the other Striking users can read each question and learn from the answers.
Thank you Kaptinlin! I ended up getting a coder to do it as that really is beyond the scope of what you should have to provide a purchaser.
I just rated this theme 5 stars. This theme, and your support quality, really deserve all 5 of those stars. I am on day 3 of working with this theme on a project and with each passing day I like it more! I am pleasantly surprised by each feature and how easy it is to implement! Love the page by page customizable features like full page background, which is getting more common on TF themes, but your addition of that feature with inner page background and every single element of the page colors being customizable on each page. OMG love it!
Very glad you are progressing so well. We are always surprised when some users ask about the visual composer for site building. They don’t realize how easy we made things with our shortcodes and admin panels, likely the best admin anywhere.
BTW, the next release of MultiFlex (1.0,2) adds another background ability to the Individual Page General Options – a background loader for the feature header area!
Our customization level per page is, to the best of our knowledge, unique amongst wp themes. As you noted, we created an easy way for all page level elements to be customized, per page, not just site level.
Thank you for your rating of the theme, and your confidence in our product.
I would say that, based upon the many themes I’ve worked wtih, your them on a page by page basis, is unparalleled for sure I’m excited to be working with this theme.
Thanks for making the theme responsive.
I’m about to update our site with the new version and was wondering whether there is an update guide available.
Apologies in advance if it is available somewhere obvious….
Over at the support forum of course!!
I am getting this when I choose to place rev slider in page featured header settings:
Revolution Slider Error: If you want to use the PHP function “putRevSlider” in your code please make sure to check ” Include RevSlider libraries globally (all pages/posts) ” in the backend’s “General Settings” (top right panel).
Or add the current page to the “Pages to include RevSlider libraries” option box.
The answer to this is over at the support forum – in fact we have a specific thread for it in the Announcement threads.
It is not actually an error, but rather that the newest vesion of the Rev Slider included in the theme gives you the option to choose whether to load the plugin scripting globally, or only on select pages.
What it is waiting for you to do is make that selection.
The forum thread:
Again a reminder for all -> the support forum is the place to go for usage questions, and most likely already has the anwer!!
(2) Can I have 4 tabs on my shop front page – LATEST PRODUCTS, FEATURED, ON SALE, SPECIALS. – Can I do this
(3) On the Shop page, can I insert images/text or carousel with brands between the red stripe under the slider and the Some Of Our Latest Products Header?
(4) Do you have a QuickShop View plugin?
I would greatly appreciate a very early reply as I want to purchase this theme.
1) I regret to say we have not yet built our our woo demonstration. I can send you to a site which has the current MultiFlex, and the latest version of woo 2.1.0 in it:
2) the kalyas page you are referencing is a regular page built by shortcodes from what i can see in the source code. Those are tabs, with the woo product categories shortcode in each tab. So this is a static page set to be the shop page in the woo Product settings tab.
You can do this not only in Striking MultiFlex, but I would think in any theme which has tab ability. Creating tabs in MultiFlex (horizontal or vertical tabs) and using the woo product catogories shortcode would allow you to do what you requested.
3) Even if you are using the Woo default shop page, you can add our product carousel. However, you can only have it above or below the woo content, whereas in a custom page which has been elected to the Shop Page, you of course have better control of where the carousel would appear.
I should advise that our carousel shortcode does not at this time show captions, which is coming in a future update. It does however allow one to choose specific products to appear. So it can be customized for every appearence.
4) no we do not.
Thank you for your interest in Striking MultiFlex. As this was just released, be advised that, as we have done in the past, there will be updates in the future, as we build out further some of the new core abillites. We have the best record of updating of any theme in the marketplace, and I do not even know of any other premium theme anywhere that has our update record.
But I do not wish to mislead you on current abilities. Our page would appear differently then the Kalyas page, and it will be at least a week before we have a full woo demo built out, and possibly longer. Ours is an extremely customizable and flexbile theme, but our Woo appearence is simply different then that in this other theme.
MultiFlex, while having specific Woo customization, is actually a multi-ecommerce plugin theme. You can run other ecommerce plugins at the same time such as Easy Digital Downloads and/or Image Store, and some of our ecommerce abilities are designed to work with all custom post type ecommerce plugins, not just woo.
I can’t post on the support forum as I didn’t purchase this theme and I don’t have the license code for this theme. I am a developer who is customizing it for a client, so hopefully you will respond to this post.
The person using this theme has asked to remove the main content area on the home page so it only shows the slider in the upper area and the footer. It looks fine on a regular computer or mobile device in landscape mode. However there’s still a big gap between the top area and the footer. I’ve used all types of CSS code to try and bring the footer up right underneath the slider, but to no avail. I wasn’t able to find any CSS code for media queries, but then after creating my own, still no luck. After digging deeper, I think I might have found the issue. There seems to be a div that contains the footer that keeps it at the bottom, but there is no id or class name associated with it to make adjustments for this particular circumstance. Here’s a link to the screenshot. (http://www.michellecbonilla.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/Footer-Issue-Screenshot.png) Can you please advise?
Thank you in advance.
Respectfully, your client should log into their themeforest account, grab their license code, in order to register for the forum and give you the password to the forum id so that you can post. The whole process from start to finish would take about 2 minutes, and possibly less. It is that quick.
Proper registration is our and Themeforest’s only defence against piracy, and we think it is reasonable to request anyone desiring help to undertake this very quick and speedy procedure.
As well, were they to log into their account, then they could download the responsive version of Striking – known as Striking MultiFlex, which is the current downloadable package for the Striking Theme and recently released as a free upgrade for existing licenseholders.
The version of Striking you are working with is not responsive, so css based on media queries is not going to have any benefit, and as it is the older fixed framework version, there is no responsive css in the screen.css file.
Awesome. Thanks a bunch!!! We’ll make that happen.
FYI, an update for Striking MultiFlex is on the horizon as well. See you on the forum should you have any questions.
Can we please give the Striking Team more than five star?!
I bought Striking Theme three years ago and i never bought another theme since! It’s the BEST WordPress theme, it really gives you full customization capabilities, also if you don’t know code. And if you’re a developer, you’ll find out it’s very easy to customize, because it’s really well coded.
Also, it has an AWESOME support team.
Coming from a high end Magento developer and site designer like yourself those words are music to our ears. Glad we have your confidence.
I was going to buy this but there is no video in the gallery and since my portfolio is mostly video I can’t use it. Everything else looks good though.
You will be relieved to hear that we have our portfolio custom post type can do html5 (self hosted), youtube and vimeo. A number of the portfolio items in the demo are video portfolio items.
The demo contains images of the portfolio admin panel (which is for theme wide settings) but does not contain an image of the portfolio edit item panel, where one creates the portfolio item, and which contains all the settings for creating portfollio items, such as video portfolio types.
Striking MultiFlex has not only video portfolio custom post type, but also a pure video shortcode, which does html5, youtube, vimeo, dailymotion and more:
Thank you for your inquiry.
Ok. Thanks for the fast response. I mean in the portfolio lightboxes though. Not single posts. Any blog can do single post video.
I’m looking for a true video gallery in lightbox fashion, like your ajax galleries here but instead of photos I need video. I didn’t see that in the demo. If you have it, that would be great.
Your right! None of our portfolio pages in the demo content demonstrate our video gallery portfolio lightbox function, and that is one of our more famous abilities! We had them in the prior version of the demo, but it seems we forgot to include at least one portfolio list with video items in this demo.
You will be relieved to hear that in fact we have a video portfolio type, which of course opens in a lightbox and can be part of a portfolio list (what you are calling a “gallery” is a portfolio list – a list of portfolio items displayed by the portfolio shortcode).
And even better, our portfolio video items have mobile fallback. As you are likely aware, while having a portfolio item display in a lightbox may be desirable in a desktop or tablet, it is not at all desirable in a phone. So you have the option in phones to have the videos open directly, rather then in a lighbox.
Our video portfolio item supports html youtube, vimeo, and self hosted mp4 video.
I am working today, and I will add a few screenshots of the portfolio post options, which show all 8 of our portfolio post types, and I will also add some portfolio video items to the galleries. In fact, several of the portfolio types are not represented in the examples, and so we need to modify them.
I will advise you now, the Striking Theme has always been famous for its portfolio options. I am unaware of any other theme which has 8 portfolio types, and you have abilities such as substitute image, dual linking (image links one place, Read More links to another), the ability to restrict the lightbox size, custom breadcrumb and url rewrites, up to 8 columns, and much, much more. We support audio, video, image, html lightbox, documents (pdf, word, excel, ppt, zips, rars and many more), etc.
Perhaps the best feature of all is that we are a theme that is approaching 4 yrs of usability, and yet we remain current. One can purchase Striking and not be concerned that one will have to look for another theme in a few months. No theme in the marketplace has the record of updates Striking possesses.
This is fantastic James. Thanks for the quick and thorough response. Yes, it looks like Striking is the one for me. I’m making my final decision soon and I really appreciate your help!
Your Welcome. Hope we see you. Version 1.0.2 is being released shortly, and has some nice tweaks in it for HTML5 video.
looks like an awesome template! One question. I noticed that on the blog post, the images open in like a “lightbox” type effect. Is it possible that when we click on the images it opens teh blog post instead of the image?
thanks – Chris
Yes you can link the image to the post or the lightbox popup by its settings.
And the bloglist shortcode has even more abiltities. If you click on the tab in this page called ‘Shortcode Option Panel’ you can see all abilities of the shortcode, most of those options you also have at hand for the default bloglist.
great video choice on http://kaptinlin.com/themes/strikingr/shortcodes/video/ the html 5 video player. !!!!! this template has so much potential for the so many churches I help. thanks! (will purchase soon!)
Oddly enough, Striking has huge use in the religious and related charitable communities. We are even going to post some church sites in our revised showcase. I think 1 or 2 of the sites listed in the item details page (the list of Responsive Sites ) are churches.
Striking has full html5 video implementation by shortcode, audio shortcode, and various podcasting type plugins work with MultiFlex, so we have been a a popular choice for church/religious sites.
BTW, in the next update of MultiFlex (next version is 1.0.2) we are adding some extra mobile capabilities to the html5 video shortcode.
PS, I believe you have posted on the forum since then but I did not want to leave your comments here unanswered.
How do you stop the logo from disappearing with the responsive feature enabled? Once you get to a certain point all that is left is the menu and no logo.
While we request owners go to the support forum for questions, the answer to your question is to load a mobile logo in the mobile logo setting. The regular and mobile logo settings have help fields – did you read them?:
In most instances, the full size logo may appear quite large in a mobile device so with this setting one can upload a second smaller version of the site custom logo. The logo will be displayed to mobile devices with a viewport smaller then 768px wide -> so it will display in viewports ranging from 320px – 767px in width. Viewport detection and logo switching is automatic, all one need do is upload the logo. As well, the logo will auto center in the screen.
That is the help text from the mobile logo setting.
We are one of the very few themes anywhere that offers this feature.
Should you have any further questions about this feature or any other we ask that you please attend the forum for answers.
Yes, we loaded a mobile logo as well and it still disappears. What settings can we change to ensure the logo always shows on mobile? Also, we have found that the mobile logo is not centering as stated in the notes.
I ask that you please go to the support forum for further assistance. I am thinking that you have some custom css to center the logo in the desktop viewports, and did not write the custom css by viewport. That is the typical reason such behaviour occurs – incorrect custom css.
But you will need to create a thread at the Support Forum, including your url, etc. And then a member of the support team will reply.
We found something in the loading order of elements which can affect some users. We have addressed this in the forthcoming update. If you posted in the forum, we can attach the updated skin.php file for you to install.
I have posted here: http://kaptinlin.com/support/discussion/10362/logo-disappearing
Big thanks for crossposting, and we replied I believe within minutes.
Thanks for your quick support!
I use version 1.0.0 and can not find how to make slider using just several html pages.
In previous versions there was anything slider, I can switch it to html mode and use html-pages as slider items.
Is it possible in version 1.0.0?
We are now at Version 1.0.1, and 1.0.2 with some tweaks (both new features and small error corrections) is on the horizon.
The html slider now is the Revolution slider. Striking MultiFlex has new sliders. The Anything Slider is no longer part of the theme.
Should you have any other questions I request you head over to the support forum and post there.
As per Themeforest guidelines, our support is by way of our support forum, not this comments thread, which is for prepurchase questions and user feedback.
Hello. Since I updated to the latest version I’ve noticed the mobile version of the site has no visible Navigation… Like for example – about, contact page etc isn’t visible and can’t be clicked anywhere.
Am i missing something?
For this matter, can you please post on the forum? The navigation always shows no matter the viewpoint. It switches to the “select” script -> which displays a dropdown field, below the 768 viewport.
I do recall one user indicating the select script failing, and it turned out it was due to a plugin loading an older version of the same script, and not queuing it correctly.
That is the only report we have of such in the last 9 months or so.
I request you post on the Support Forum (our Support Tab above clearly indicates our support is at the forum, not here at Themeforest) and include your url, and one of the support team will surf to your site and examine it using our developer tools. If there is a js error (a 404 error is typical if the script is being blocked from functioning) we will advise.
