I purchased and installed Extinct with no issue, but had two questions I wanted to ask.
The first issue has to do with the Home Page. I have Revolution showing up as it should, but I noticed that when I switched from “Boxed” to “Stretch” in the theme options, the text from the page now stretches across the page as well.
You can see in this example [see private reply below for URL and temp login info] that I had to use CSS to get the text to center and stay within a 1024px box, but I feel like there must be a simpler solution. Is there some setting in the theme options that keeps the text of the page within the main content box instead?
Second issue deals with an odd Revolution Slider problem. I have seven 1920×480 background images uploaded and displaying (same page as above), and am building my slides with them. The idea would be that the PNGs would be added as layers over the backgrounds, and slide over the identically-sized backgrounds.
When I uploaded the PNGs and tried to add them as layers in Revolution, the PNGs have somehow become much larger in the Slide Builder interface. I did verify that they were still 1920×480 in the WP Media library, so I’m not sure if it’s something that Revolution does behind the scenes?
Any assistance with the above issues would be greatly appreciated. So far your theme has been great to work with, and I hope you sell the hell out of it! Good work!

I see that you are using images with 1920 x 450 px resolution. But the slider height is just 350px which will force the Revolution Slider to resize the image according to the slider height you have set in the slider settings. Besides, the text you have used in the slides are not text layers but are embedded within the image, so there is no way revolution slider will know how much to crop the image. If you are going to put the text inside the image then, please make sure that they remain within 1140px grid system. This ensures that the text is displayed even when the resolution of the devices change. See attached file where I have marked the 1140px grid.
But still, I would suggest you use proper text layers inside the Revolution Slider, so that your text re-sizes according to the device resolution. For more info read the Revolution Slider Documentation inside the “Revolution Slider instructions” folder. This way you will save a lots of time in future without having to worry about fitting the images for various screen resolutions.
Besides the login you sent doesn’t have admin privileges. Thanks!February 17, 2014 at 10:40 pm #4588
Nexus – thank you very much! I wasn’t keen on using Revolution’s text layers because of font choice, but what you say about resizing makes sense. I don’t know why I had the 1920×450 measure, but once I changed it, everything started making much more sense.
Two other (hopefully) quick questions regarding styling:
1) I’m using a Child theme to re-style, and have nailed down all the color changes…except one (see attached). There is a small image or box under the post date on the blog and post pages, and I can’t find either an image or CSS rule to change it (it’s the small triangle under the date)
2) I can’t seem to get the Title Header to appear on the Blog page at all. It appears everywhere else, and even on the individual post page, but on the main blog page it just fails to appear.
Thank you again – the theme is great to work with so far!

Thank you, Meteorite and Nexus! Everything’s fixed, and looking like I wanted. Definitely giving the theme 5 stars on ThemeForest!
All the best,
