Question about WP multisites/network. I have a WP network with domain mapping. Do I need to purchase each time I add a mapped domain to the network?
I believe the answer to this is yes, but Themeforest controls the licensing, not us, and I would recommend you review their guidelines on theme licensing:
Hello, before to buy , is the (demo conten t& image) include on download ?
i need to only customise the demo not create a content
Yes. Actually it is included in the theme core files! We have a one touch demo install process, and even a video on how to do it.
Please note that the revolution slider slides are not included as it is an included plugin, and so there is no way to have its slides show up in the demo content.
Hi! Hello – I really love your Theme and I bought it a few month ago -I have a question regarding social media buttons – how can I integrate the Facebook button??? thank you for your kind support!
Can you please log into your id at the forum and post your question? Also indicate which version of Striking you are using, etc.
I am trying to log in to the support truethemes helpdesk. I had a username but it doesn’t remember me when I say forgot password. It says this user does not exist. Then I tried to set up a new account for the help desk and it said my purchase code is wrong even though I followed all the directions. What should I do about this?
Also, my question in the help desk was going to be “How do I change over my desktop Sterling Theme to the new responsive version? Also, how do I make sure I don’t lose all my data when I make this switch.”
I believe you have posted in the wrong place. We are not truethemes and this is not Sterling, but Striking.
Great theme—love it. I have one question for you. How can I center the site title?
Thanks for your help.
You center it using custom css, and you have to specify by viewport, as the logo centers automatically in the mobile viewports.
We have threads on this topic even for MultiFlex at the support forum, and you should register there (takes 30 seconds or less) if you have any followup questions.
Our policy for custom css is indicated in the section on support policies in the documentation, and in the Help Tab of the theme panels.
I was wondering if it’s possible to assign custom body background images for each page separately? So for example I would have backgroundX.jpg on home page and backgroundY.jpg on blog page? Of course I have boxed version of theme in my mind.
The second question is about logo. I need to use 3 different logos assigned to specific pages (imagine that website represents 3 small companies). I guess your theme doesn’t support that feature by default? Do you perhaps have any idea how to implement that, would it be hard to do it?
Thank you or enquiring about Striking MultiFlex.
1) In non-box mode, our theme accomodates assigning a different body background per page! It is part of a group of settings that allow one to customize each page individually and you can see those setting here:
Go down the page a bit to the tabs, and the 3rd tab “custom colors/csss/js” contains an image of a metabox (Page General Options) we add to the WP “edit page” panel and located below the content editor. The image shows the admin interface for all the appearence features that can be customized per page. To the best of our knowledge, we are the only theme that provides the ability for a user to customize page appearence individually using settings, to this extent.
In box mode, you can use the custom css box found in to change the background – you would have to use custom css for this. You do not need to specify id as part fo the selector as the custom css box in the Page General Options metabox is coded by page id already.
2) I do not know any theme which supports 3 different logos by default – is there one? That is an unusual enough requirement that I am not aware of it being a stock feature anywhere.
BTW, we do support loading both a regular logo, and also a separate logo for mobile viewports!
You can specify a custom logo per page again by using the custom css box I noted above. You can use custom css in that field for both the regular logo, and if you desire, a mobile logo.
The custom css is not hard at all. We provide custom css on a paid basis, if users require design help of this nature. There are a number of threads on the support forum about customizing the logo, including at least one I recall on instituting a logo per page. The css may have changed from the time of the threads, but those may be enought to get you on track without involving us on a paid basis. The custom css field per page, another unique Striking MultiFlex Feature, makes that task of targeted css much easier.
Thank you for inquiring about the theme.
Despite the fact that James does not like this site, here is example of using 3 different backgrounds and their variations on different pages.
Small add-on It’s rather usual requirement of users to have different logos on different pages and there is a lot of solutions how to achieve your desired result with any, even not premium theme (just Google or use search on wp codex). You’ll find a lot of free of charge advices from Themeforest authours and WP developers I’m not such a great coder as James, but I am not sure that you can achieve your result only with custom CSS. In most cases you’ll need to edit header section of theme.
LOL, why do you think I don’t like that site! I told you before I loved what you did with it. Built with MultiFlex. How could I not like it.
I don’t know if multiple logo is that popular. In about 15,000 forum questions, it has only been asked about once or twice.
Hi JamesI thought that you don’t like the site, because you have not publish a link to it on item page (BTW there are no sites in users DIY examples which demonstrate different page backgrounds and their variations on different pages.) Regarding different logos: I think that it is requirement of designers who used different header backgrounds on different pages. They need to change the color of the logo to make it more clear on different backgrounds.
Conclusion: If in about 15,000 forum questions, this feature has only been asked about once or twice, it means that from 16,986 sites based on Striking there were only few sites in which different page background images are used.
Have not yet published the link but it will be when we redo the front page.
When we update the list of sites we will include a few that make more use of the range of abilities in MultiFlex. But given the huge array of options, no one site will ever use more then 30%-40% of what Striking MultiFlex offers. The goal was to give users choice, and allow them to vary and shake up their site from time to time without having to go to a new theme.
I will give some thought to the logo matter. It really is a rarely asked question.
There are many sites which use different body backgrounds from page to page, but that background is positioned outside the header area, so this is likely why it has not come up.
Most sites that have a header background tend to keep the background stable across all pages, and with good reason, as the header area is one of the places in a website where the brand identity is featured – > if it varies from page header to page header, then the viewer is often left with a confusing message about the brand it (that’s 30 yrs of executive level business experience talking Mike…..)
I checked, and we have posts on the forum about changing the logo on different pages.
Hi James, I guess that it’s not correct place for discussions here, that’s why I posted my reply on support forum.http://kaptinlin.com/support/discussion/10462/different-logos-on-different-pages
I installed the theme and install the demo data.
I have two problems:
1) I can not find the files. Zip for the slider. How to find them?
Thank you for your help
Hi Comeback! (love that name….)
@ miska48 – thanks for responding.
As mishka indicated, our demo content is built right into the theme core, no needing to go to an external file for installation 99% of the time.
Here are some links for you that might help you:
a) video on installing the demo content http://www.strikingsupport.com/video-tutorials
b) forum thread with a smaller version of the demo content in zip format: http://kaptinlin.com/support/discussion/10335/condensed-demo-content-files-also-video-tutorial-published-
c) the demo site reflects updated content, and the next version of Striking MultiFlex will have the updated front page.
As well, it is not possible to install the demo content with the Revolution Slider demo slides. So the newest version has a different slider on the homepage.
Irrespective of the front page, most of the balance of the content is the same or similar.
1.There are no zip files for slider in demo installation. (May be authors use some other type of files or import technique.)
2.LOL. The picture you provided shows the very old version of demo site. The demo site and logo was changed several times.
3.It’s better to ask help on Striking support forum as it mentioned on item support page.
As I once wrote: A wonderful theme! A quick support from the Striking Team. They also help individual adjustments. And, they are looking forward to see how the result looks then! A tip: Buy Now!
The fotorama slideshow shortcode is not working correctly. If I preview it with the shortcode editor it works, but on the page it just renders the full images and no slideshow or thumbnails.
If you go to our demo site, is the fotorama slider displaying fine for you? It works fine for us on all of our live site tests (we have it active on about 25 sites) and I just anvassed a couple of users who have it active, and they report all is well.
I ask that you hop over to the forum, post a thread, and include a url. I suspect it is something specific to your site, and once we have a page to look at, we can try and get you on track.
Hello kaptinlin, I am using striking since two years and it works great. I am mad about the many functions and it works perfect with the WPML.
At the moment I still use the old version but I would like to move to the responsive one but I have a few doubts…
1) Do you suggest to switch to the multiflex one now, or it’s better if I wait a bit more? I mean if there is anything that need to be fixed of the new version.
2) I like the way my blog looks now http://www.adesignerinfashion.com/en/ (except for the new blog mansory mode that I would like to try). Are all the old features still in the new version?
3) Also about the mansory mode: can I chose more or less than 3 cullums and when I read the post, place the image on the center? (not on the left side as the demo).
Tanks a lot for creating this amazing theme!
I think you have a thread at the forum, and even a pm to me, which you can update with this, and I will reply. I would have to visit your site again, log in and check your custom css to provide an firm answer.
I was wondering if your theme was compatible with Visual Composer. I saw a recent thread in your support forum where a user was directed to a thread called “Tell me about your responsive website” for information on using a visual editor but there was no link to the thread and I can’t find it in your forum.
Just in case you did not see the post from mishka48, who uses the visual composer, the answer is yes.
We are not great fans of the visual composer for a variety of reasons. It is a fine plugin from a well established high quality developer, and great for those who can only work visually, but it adds significant overhead to page with all the inline css generated for each elements position. And we have reports from users that some vc elements do not work well in responsive viewports.
Finally, and perhaps most importantly (although the overhead generated can be argued to be of equal importance), content choreography does not seem to be possible with the Visual Composer, and Content Choreography is a key litmus test of true responsiveness. If we are wrong on this inability of the plugin we apologize, but that is what the feedback and our own testing to date has determined.
Striking MultiFlex has true content choreography ability. We have a page in the demo demonstrating it.
So we have not formally integrated the plugin as a result. But it works fine with MultiFlex.
Thank you for inquiring into Striking MultiFlex.
@dreamregent Hi, I made this site with Striking Multiflex and VC http://wildww.com/ No issues at all. VC works like a charm with Striking.
Great Site! Love the use of the Landing Page template in our theme!
Is this compatible with WooCommerce 2.1.5 ?
Is it compatible with WP 3.8.1 ?
What kind of page builder does this use? Is it only with shortcodes?
Or does this have a “Drag & Drop” page builder ?
Thank you for enquiring about Striking MultiFlex turner2f.
We are compatible with the latest WooCommerce, and the latest Wordpress. In fact we have already pretested with WP 3.9 and at least at this stage, nothing erroneous is apparent (and if it were we would fix, we always, always maintain compatibility).
We do not use page builder. We use shortcodes. Page Builders such as the visual composer seem to have some outstanding issues
- they load a significant amount more overhead on every page (and Striking MultiFlex is highly optimized for loading – it has a smaller initial burden then the wp 2014 default theme!) due to all the inline code generated for the position of each element
- as has been written about elsewhere by different designers and users, some VC elements behave improperly in certain viewports.
We prefer the low overhead/optimized, and type of flexibility our shortcode design provides, particularly should a user wish to target any element and customize it. And our design allows for Content Choreography as a result:
an uncommon ability and possible mainly due to the shortcode basis of our implementation.
We are advised by users that the Visual Composer plugin works fine in Striking MultiFlex. In fact comments immediately above discuss it as well.
Again thank you for enquiring about Striking MultiFlex.
purchased striking version 5.2.1 some months ago.
now i want to enlarge the site so here are my questions:
what is the safest way to update from v5.2.1 to multiflex?
what means wp-multi language implentation exatly, its built in?
is striking compatible to multilingual-press-pro plugin?
is there a good way in the theme to get different main-navigations for sublevel-pages?
thanks in advance!!!
HI SB Services
I think you have previously posted questions on the forum and so are familiar with our policy that the Support Forum is the place where we can assist you with any questions you have about updating.
We have a sticky/announcement thread at the forum:
Striking is a wpml certified compatible theme. No theme actually builds wpml into its core as that is not allowed. But we have detailed code in our theme specifically to accomodate the wpml plugin. This includes a wpml-config.xml file, as well as code for recognition of the wpml strings. Such work is what allows our custom post types to be translatable using wpml when it is activated.
We also have some other customizations, such as a custom display of the wpml flag widget when used in the Top Header Area in widget mode.
yes, we are compatible with the pro version.
I do not understand your last question. Ask it in a thread at the forum please, perhaps with more explanation of what you mean, and one of the support team will respond.
Hi – I’ve purchased Striking TWICE. Once in 2012 and again for another website last week. I’m having ginormous issues. I can’t even add my purchase code to the theme. When I hit save, it overwrites and leaves a question mark. I am trying to reset the homepage and blog page and the SAVES do NOT work. When the page refreshes, it overwrites my changes and won’t let me change anything. Please help. We have an important event on Thursday and people are purchasing tickets. THe site is screwed up…
I am sorry you are having “ginourmous” issues. Did you review any of our documentation? And have you posted a question requesting help on any matters at our support forum where one of our support team members would help you?
We note everywhere we can here at Theemforest- in the Support Tab above, and in the commentary in the Item Details Tab, that our support comes from our support forum, which is monitored daily. Did you not see any of these prompts on where our help resources are available?
I will say that your issues you note “scream” of one of two likely suspects: invalid installation, or shared hosting with inadequate php settings. Many cheap shared hosts, in order to maximize the number of sites they can host on a server, run with the minimal php initialization set. In the early days of wp, having setttings such as max_input_var = 1000 was fine. But with wp 3.8 (which uses huge resources compared to past iterations), and a full fledged premium theme that supports many functions simultaneously, if this php setting is not at least set to 3000, then one can encounter significant, and even inexplicable errors. Like the one’s you seem to be describing to me.
An ecommerce site absolutely demands quality hosting, yet another variable in the mix.
Do you know how to add a phpmyinfo.php file to your public root so you can observer your host settings?
Please post on the forum, and we will assist you.
I’ve asked the question on the forum a few moments before I posted here. I thought your platform for the support forum was really busy, convoluted, and confusing and I wasn’t sure anyone had read it (was I supposed to know who my Recipient was without a prompt or guide?). The support forum looks like a jumbled mess. The colors, words, and sections are insane. I’ve purchased Striking twice, like I said, because I like it. I’ve been using it on www.rredc.org since 2012 and I broke the site somehow on an install on Friday last week. I’d purchased a second license to set up a mirror site for www.scedf.org. My problem is pretty unique, esp since it was working perfectly 5 days ago. That isn’t going to be in your documentation. I’m pretty sure I need specific attention. SUpport forum url is http://kaptinlin.com/support/messages/2677 (P.S. – still no response on the forum, so I definitely prefer Envato’s comment section)
Thank you for putting “ginormous” in quotation marks. I wasn’t commenting on your code, just on my website issues. I appreciate your list of rhetorical questions as well.
That said – your attention to possible causes is (not sarcastically) appreciated. It may be an install problem. I’ve been hosting WP sites on fatcow for years and the website was working up until Friday. I’d really appreciate suggestions/help on how to get the site back on track.
Part of the urgency is we have an annual fundraiser in three days and registration was on the website. Trying to fix ASAP.
Our support forum is busy! Its a pretty straightforward forum however, and no one seems to have had issue with it in the past that I am aware….
no one has responded to your post at the forum yet as I am the support person at this hour, and I have not made it over there yet. I will be heading there after this post.
I will reply there further. We do not provide support via the themeforest comments. I have to deal with threads in the order they are posted at the forum. But I am working for several hours yet (although dinner is on the horizon it being 630pm in my neck of the woods) and I will reply to you in the thread, and likely request the site and ftp logins (which I will do by way of sending you a personal message via the forum back end messaging tool – you will see a notice indicating you have a personal message once I do such. It wont be until about 9pm or later my time (EST).
Be advised, the matter may or may not fall into the paid support bracket. But i will reply with more info once I see your thread, and have taken a closer look at your situation.
Sounds good. Fair enough. See you on the forum.
I still haven’t had a response on the forum. http://kaptinlin.com/support/messages/2677 I already have an ftp account set up for the striking team. What’s going on? Did I not participate in the forum correctly or something? I’ve already stressed I have registration for an event going on in two days. Trying to resolve this. Pretty disappointed in the unprofessionalism of kaptinlin mocking my comments above and then not getting a response on the forum.
First, no one mocked your comments above – where do you see that?
Second – you sent the message to kaptinlin, whereas my id on the forum is Websys, so I did not see it. All you had to do was create a normal thread saying I have a problem and I was told to come here by James, I would have seen your thread, and then replied. I was on the forum answering questions until almost 2am last night, waiting for your thread to show up.
I understand you have this event in two days. That is why I stayed on the forum so long last night.
Please go back to your personal message you sent to Kaptinlin, You will see you have the option to “Add People to this Conversation”. In the field please type “Websys” and then Add.
I am logged into the forum. So once you do such I will see the message, its contents, and then we can commence examining your situation and getting you on track.
And I have already replied! We will finish up over there and get you on track.
Sounds good. Thank you.
I don’t see a reply from you yet, but two of us are online at this time ready to assist you…... the premise being “2 heads are better then one”.
OK – So I’m HAPPY TO ADMIT I WAS WRONG. The Striking theme support system is UNRIVALED. Thank you, Striking Team, for your patience and extreme efforts to resolve the problem with my host server!! A number of you went well above and beyond the call of duty to assist me. I’ve purchased Striking Twice, and will be purchasing/recommending this theme MANY MORE TIMES in the future. AMAZING THEME! AMAZING SUPPORT! They made me a believer.
Hi: I am getting a broken theme, missing .css error. Can you please update the zip file with the required fix ? I am a novice and I? would prefer to have access to a clean file. Thanks for your support. Regards, Chandramouli
Its actually that you installed incorrectly. This is a common mistaked by Themeforest buyers, and Themeforest has a tutorial for all users on how to install properly:
use the first option “I am getting an error when installing”
and it will lead you to the classic “missing style sheet” question and then you will get a tutorial on how to install properly.
Should you still not install correctly after following the Themeforest tutorial, then please go over to our support forum (all the instructions are in the Support Tab above) register (takes only a few seconds but you will need your item purchase code), and create a new thread.
Thank you for purchasing. its just an installation hiccup you are having which i think you will fix up right away once you review the themeforest install instructions. And if not, we will help you at the forum.
Hi! I bought your theme and I´m wondering if it is possible to use a LINK to a written mailaddress in the footer area? (I installed a Widget (2nd footer widget area – Text – and insert the address including a e-mail address – but HOW can I install a LINK direct to the E-Mail address? href=”mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org”>email@example.com
Thank you for your help!
I ask that you please post at the Striking Support forum, per the link found in the Support Tab above (although I think you already have a forum id if I recall correctly), and one of the support team will help you with your question.
To anyone reading, all our support on usage and othe questions is provided at our Support Forum, which has a team dedicated to reviewing and answering usage questions constantly every day. Usage questions like this are answered free of charge.
Hi James – I still wrote you on your Support Forum.. but there is no answer yet
best regards Sabrina
I think when I posted, in fact Paul from our team had or was responding. I will look for your post to confirm.
Can you help me to find the solution to my problem. I can not acceed to my dashboard..! When I enter mysite.fr/wp-admin, I am automatically redirected to the website page mysite.fr... It is impossible for me to display the login page.. Any idea ??
Hi, I have desactivated the plugin better-wp-security, it is ok now.
If you cross post to the forum, we can perhaps provide you a bit more help. Dashboard failure potentially indicates a fundemental problem with the plugin and wordpress, but it could also be related to the hosting platform you are on. It could also be a conflict between plugins, if for example you have another plugin for customizing the login page.
Thank you for your answer. It was du to the plugin Better-wp-security (I made a wrong setting).
Good to hear you are back up and running. In the future, I request should you have any issues that you hop over to our support forum. We only hit Themeforest maybe once a day, and usually not even that often.
Sorry, I don’t speak a good english and I don’t understand what you mean ? (hop over to your support forum ? What does it mean ?)
It means that instead of posting a question here at Themeforest, please go to our Support Forum:
and post your questions there. It is where we provide theme support.
