24 AUGUST 2014 - UPDATE

1)  We have released Striking 5.3.1 today.  It will only available by the internal update function as this theme is deprecated and no longer available for sale. If you are still using the Striking Original theme the update notice should now be showing in your site although it may take some hours to propogate across the entire web.


2)   Please update to WP 3.9.2 asap as it deals with some security matters.  All Striking sites using MultiFlex 1.0.3+ or Striking 5.3/5.3.1 can be updated to WP 3.9.2. immediately.  We have tested the latest beta of WP 3.4 with our forthcoming Striking MultiFlex Ver 1.1 and they appear to be fine with each other.


3)   We are submitting Striking MultiFlex Ver 1.1 to Themeforest for approval on Monday August 25. The Themeforest approval process can take up to 5 days. We will advise on approval once received.

Setting different background sizes in the header for diff size monitors
  • What size graphic should I use for a custom header graphic. I have set it up at 960 pixels wide but when the browser is extended to full screen size the left and right margins are white. I would prefer not to tile the image is possible.

  • Hi michael1976,

    I think you can create a image in 1600px width or 1920px width.

  • this will not solve the problem on monitors larger then 27"
  • Yeah,

    Maybe you can try create different size of backgrounds for different screen.

    Then use media query.
    #header {
    background-image: url('1440 width image here');
    }

    @media only screen and (min-width: 1440px) and (max-width: 1599px) {
    #header {
    background-image: url('1600 width image here');
    }
    }

    @media only screen and (min-width: 1600px) and (max-width: 1919px) {
    #header {
    background-image: url('1920 width image here');
    }
    }
    @media only screen and (min-width: 1920px) {
    #header {
    background-image: url('2560 width image here');
    }
    }


    Copy the code to custom code area in striking->general options page.
