Possible bug with Visual Composer “Heading link function”?

Hi WPExplorer. I´ve made a page with selected works from my Portfolio. See http://kjartan-abel.com/selected-works/

For the titles underneath the portfolio images items i´ve used the Heading element with link pointing to portfolio items. When clicking the text link in Chrome, nothing happens! Clicking a image takes you to the portfolio item. Is there something wrong in my end or is this a bug?


Sorry it is bug and I’ll be updating the theme soon to fix the issue. For a quick fix please edit Total/vcex_templates/vcex_heading.php and change line 85 from:

if ( $link_local_scroll ) {


if ( 'true' == $link_local_scroll ) {

Sorry about the bug!!

I see that when pages have many elements the beckend il very slow. But today I cannot really work on a page I built. I used the tour widget with 30 labels and tryi to modify the page is impossible. Am I doing something wrong? please help me!

Is everything up to date? http://wpexplorer-themes.com/total/changelog/

There has been some improvements to speed up the Visual Composer lately. But if your site is almost impossible to work with it’s most likely server related. Are you hosted on a good server?

This is the largest page on our demos – totaltheme.wpengine.com/base/ – and it only takes about 1.5 seconds to load the backend and front-end editor.

If you don’t believe it’s server related and everything is up to date you can submit a ticket – wpexplorer-themes.com/support/

Hi, I need to add a custom font on the theme. I have followed the instruction given by the theme. But below snippet doesn’t add my custom font to typography.

// Add custom font to font settings function wpex_add_custom_fonts() { return array( ‘My Custom Font’ ); }

Please advice.


Is your theme up to date? http://wpexplorer-themes.com/total/changelog/

I double checked and the code should still be working.

Is there a way to add a button like the blue “purchase” button that you have on this demo (http://totaltheme.wpengine.com/samus/contact/) to my current site that doesn’t use the demo but uses your theme?

Hi, the menu in the mobile version on this site…www.webable.it…. does not appear. I can’t find the problem

This is caused by a plugin loading the bootstrap.css on your site. It’s likely breaking other things as well…

We added a fix for the mobile menu though in one of the updates – http://wpexplorer-themes.com/total/changelog/ (your theme is very outdated)

I created a slider with Layer Slider . I want to place it in a left column of the page . How to position ? It is placed in the middle of the page.

Hello ,
thanks for your answer. But what happens to me is that I do not manage to position the slider on the left sidebar .
I have a row of 1 rang for 1 column left + 1 sidebar right, and i want to position the slider in the column that is left sidebar . Could not do it. I did :
1) a text area and I put the shortcode of the slider ;
2) I created a widget and the widget rank with the shortcode
but nothing happens, the slider is always in the middle of the page. It’s out of my column .

Oh you want the slider inside an actual widget? You should be able to place the shortcode directly into a “text” widget in the sidebar. Does that not work?

If you need further help please open a ticket and share the URL so we can look – http://wpexplorer-themes.com/support/

OK, thank you

Hi, I was hoping you could help me diagnose an issue on iOS (Safari on ipad). When my site first loads, the Header will suddenly disappear while the Revolution Slider loads. The Rev Slider does not finish loading. I have to scroll the screen to make the header and slider reappear. Please see: http://goo.gl/85DSu7

Thank you.

It seems the problem is being caused by the Spinner. If I disable the spinner, the slider loads correctly.

I have configured my Archives & Entries page to use no sidebar layout and grid style. When viewing posts of a given tag, the page is rendered in this format. So far so good!

I have also associated a custom taxonomy to same blog post. When I view the term page, the layout follows the standard blog layout (ie content on the left, default sidebar on the right.)

What do I need to do to make sure custom taxonomy archive pages is the same as standard tag pages?

Have a look here, it’s pretty simple with the Total filters – http://wpexplorer-themes.com/total/snippets/altering-layouts/ – for your conditional you can use the is_tax conditional.

Until you pointed this out, only I realised the filters are so powerful!

The link you referred didn’t really help, but through there I found http://wpexplorer-themes.com/total/snippets/alter-archive-to-display-blog/

So I modified the code this way:

function my_wpex_is_blog_query( $bool ) { if ( is_tax() ) { // Check if it’s taxonomy archive $bool = true; // Make it render like blog posts } return $bool; } add_filter( ‘wpex_is_blog_query’, ‘my_wpex_is_blog_query’ );
