Hi, great theme – thanks for that. I have a problem with the menu items in the backend. I can´t sort them. Can you take a look at the site? thanks Ruediger

WPExplorer

Hi Ruediger,

What is the problem? And what is the URL so I can have a look?

Default-user

It is a problem of the backend. I can`t manage the menu-items. I have to send you a login for the site.

Default-user

It is a problem of the LayerSliderWP. If you use the “Use Google CDN version of JQuery” than the JQuery of the menu doesn`t work. It would be helpful if you give an advice to this topic. Ruediger

Installation problem.

I am trying to install total.zip (it includes _MACOSX and total folders) via Wordpress. It won’t upload at all.

I have followed the steps in the installation guide but no luck at all.

Any tips please as to what I might be doing wrong?

Thanks

Hi AJ

Could you please advise if and how I could go about moving the menu from the main logo section to the page header section (where the breadcrumbs are located)? Also if that can be moved, I then want to use a full size logo image – how do I center this on the page please?

Cheers Barry

Hi Barry,

This is going to be pretty tricky, will header style 2 or 3 not work for your purposes?

Right now there aren’t any hooks inside the page header, so adding the nav in there is possible, but not as easy as it could be. I’ll add in some hooks for the next update.

Hi AJ, wow,Total’s sales are at 3,200+—good for you, it’s a great theme.

Please take a quick look at these screenshots: http://postimg.org/image/wt5uklq3f/

Could you add a feature that allows us to place post titles ABOVE the featured image in archive views? I can do that in single posts by tweaking the controls you’ve provided, but I don’t see any option to mimic that behavior in archives (so that the viewer sees a consistent layout when navigating between single posts and archives). Thanks!

WPExplorer

Thanks ;)

Yes I will be adding in the same drag/drop options for version 1.53, it’s already been requested by another user and I totally agree it’s needed!

Thanks AJ!

It’s not done yet, thank me later ;)

Sorry for bad english. Can I make pinterest-like or weheartit-like site with this theme? (simply join&login upload by anyone, like button on thumbnail and article, a page for liked articles by each member,...)

Also, over 2 columns thumbnails(article list) on phone is possible with this theme?

WPExplorer

It might be possible via 3rd party functions. But honestly if what you want is a pinterest style theme I would recommend looking for a theme that’s specifically built for that purpose.

Hello,

I am trying to do my portfolio page but there is no visual composer so I can’t edit it the way you demonstrate in your tutorial video on youtube…. How do I get the visual composer to set for this page? Everything is up to date.

Thanks.

Default-user

I also wanted to mention that there is no problems with the visual composer when creating a page. It’s just not showing for adding a portfolio.

Thanks.

WPExplorer

This should be mentioned in the docs, I’ll double check to make sure!

Basically you just have to go to Settings->Visual composer and enable it for the post types you want to use it on. By default it’s only enabled on pages.

Default-user

Hello,

Great!! That solved it. I guess I should’ve checked the docs for that. I just had assumed that every page type had the visual composer enabled.

Thanks for your prompt reply.

WPExplorer

No worries, I can answer you faster then reading the docs ;)

Uhm.. is there a way to center a raw js with a 728×90 px ad? it seems its always to the left in my row.. tried different rows layout but cant convince it to stay in the center of the screen..

I’m talking about the ad above the portfolio buttons at http://www.superwrt.eu/

WPExplorer

If that’s a static ID on the code then it’s very easy with CSS:

#profitshare-501298-1 {
margin: 0 auto;
}

Result: http://cl.ly/image/0k101C3E4405

You may want to give it a little top/bottom margin though as well for some spage ;)

got it, works so fine! thanks!

what’s the best way to add text to the left of the social media in the right corner like on the dev site? I see right now in the theme options I can have text on the the left and social media on the right within the top bar but I would like to add the text right next to the social media. Any ideas.

WPExplorer

2 options:

1. Disable the social in the theme panel and that will display an alternative content box, you could add your own html or images for the social here.

2. Copy the ‘wpex_topbar_output’ function from the file at Total/framework/header/top-bar.php to your child theme and modify it.

Hey there!

Two things:

1) Since updating my theme I’ve been having problems with my “images as titles” procedure. I get a title that says “Blog” and I’m not sure where to change it. This happens on other posts as well. I’d like to hide the post title and use white text on the image as the title. However, I seem to have lost the ability to hide the “native” title; where is it? http://puu.sh/av0cU/4bae2e8b7e.png

2) On mobile, there seems to be some weird spacing/overlap with the metadata. I’m unfamiliar with editing CSS for mobile; would you know off-hand where I could edit the margins/padding to give it some space?

This seems to have been fixed.

Thanks.

Default-user

It seems that the theme is importing whatever my page header is as the white text (in this case, “blog”) instead of whatever the title of the post is. Is this because of my URL structure (http://ember.gg/guide-gaming-business-cards/)? Not sure why it would be bringing this over, as I’m not formatting these as pages, but posts.

WPExplorer

HI there,

The new title is due to the new blog post layout options – http://cl.ly/image/270M2g46173m – this is mentioned in the “important” notice on the changelog: http://www.wpexplorer.com/changelogs/total/

The option to disable the title on posts is still there, but the meta options have been updated: http://cl.ly/image/382s032L3J0W

But if you want to disable the title on all blog posts it’s easier via a custom function as mentioned in this FAQ: http://themeforest.net/item/total-responsive-multipurpose-wordpress-theme/6339019/faqs/20662

Just change “product” to “post”.

Default-user

Sorry to waste your time on this. Thanks for the response.

WPExplorer

No worries! I’m glad to help ;)

Hello!:-) I’ve 2 presales questions. Your Total theme does come with the full version of Visual Composer plugin + your own features (extensions) built-in or does it come with a modify version of Visual Composer? The second one is about the loading page speed: does the theme load fast? Many thanks for replying me asap. Regards – nuno:-)

Hi, how can we have the portfolio items just display the featured image and not the text as is showing here http://beekind.jp? Also what is the URL for the portfolio page as I’m getting a 404 page not found when linking to /portfolio now. Thanks.

Found the portfolio fix, thanks. Still have trouble with the portfolio page…

WPExplorer

Have a look at this video guide for the portfolio – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e5kghX7NJrQ

When you are using the Visual Composer simply disable the excerpt, title..etc that you don’t want: http://cl.ly/image/043B2r3k2x0j

Are there additional responsive navigation options than the one shown? A dropdown menu or anything like that?

Doug

WPExplorer

Currently just the one, but I’m thinking of adding in a couple different options. A simple select and a toggle like the one in my new theme LuxMag. Still in progress though without an ETA. But definitely on the to do list!

I do not have the drag and drop builder when I re-activated total. How can I get the plugins that are supposed to be attached to the theme?

WPExplorer

You should see a notice at the top of the site as described in the documentation to install these, looks like this: http://cl.ly/image/4226163b3w0C – but with all the plugin names of course.

If you don’t see that, you can try clearing your browser cache/cookies.

And as the last resort you can always find all plugins inside the theme’s plugins folder (Total/plugins/) so they can be uploaded just like any other plugin.

Hi there, I have just purchased and installed this theme and when I go to create a page, a lot of the elements for the visual composer are missing – things like Staff, Testimonials etc etc

hi again,

ok i have a couple more questions mate.

1- is it possible to allocate different size space for each of the widgets in the footer? or give them percentages of the space.

2 – how to remove the Post Header Custom Text in single blog just so there is only the breadcrumbs and no title.

3 – how to show related blogs/portfolios without the Excerpt, like this one http://totaltheme.wpengine.com/base/portfolio-item/perfect-bikes/ , i cant seam to find anywhere that allows me to choose what related post/portfolios categories or to have them with or without the excerpt.

4 – change the font the size and color of the headings, i can see in the them options you can change the font family but it changes them all and no option for size or color.

many thanks

hi, i dont think the changes i make in the child theme css file or php are making any changes, ive tried a couple of things but nothing changed, the .css file still has ”@import url(”../Total/style.css”);” on it, i didnt do anything to it, just installed it through wordpress and activated it, is there anything else i need to do ?
