AJ! my friend, my master theme designer : ) could you please help me…

I have a site designed where I have a background image for all of my pages. All my text is white. In a presentation with the client the load speed was slower than I had experienced. Therefor displaying white text on a white background for too long until the image loaded. With that explained I am trying to implement a color background that lies in place until the image loads. I am applying it like so in the following screenshot however it is not taking place: https://www.dropbox.com/s/msy31867iczif3n/Screen%20Shot%202014-09-18%20at%206.27.15%20PM.png?dl=0

Could you tell me why or rather a way to accomplish what i am trying to do.


Sincerely, Chad

Good morning. I have the following error on any 404s:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘re’ (T_STRING) in /home/ucapdorg/public_html/wp-content/themes/Total/404.php on line 24

The 404 page used to work properly. I’m not sure when this started happening.


I don’t see that error anywhere when I check with WP_Debug enabled.

- Have you made any edits to the file?

- Is your theme up to date? http://www.wpexplorer.com/changelogs/total/


I try to update the plugin WPBakery Visual Composer but when I do wordpress tells me this:
Error! Envato username, api key and your purchase code are required for downloading updates from Envato marketplace for the Visual Composer
Though I have put my purchase code in Theme Options. What’s wrong? Isn’t the update included?

Thanks! /Jonatan

I’m having issues with my child theme custom CSS working. For example, I have on this page: http://enwhc.wpengine.com/home/homepage-19/ a custom heading (the Our team “Our Physicians are leaders in women’s health ” sentence) I have it called out as h3.hometeam in custom css and it’s not effecting anything.


It’s definitely working, don’t forget to clear your browser cache: http://cl.ly/image/2P2v0W0P3D2E

After updating Total to 1.54, my columns are not rendering correctly in VC. For example, if I have two columns (1/2 + 1/2), the content is stacked vertically like it is stuck in a responsive state. Any ideas? Has anyone else experienced this?


Very strange, this clearly shouldn’t be happening as you can see from the live demo it’s working just fine.

Please make sure your VC plugin is updated with the version supported by the theme:

The VC and Templatura plugins are at the correct version. What was weird was that it wasn’t happening on Firefox/Windows but was happening in Chrome & Opera. I tested on Chrome & Firefox on Linux and got the same strange result. I disabled some plugins that could be causing issues and no luck there.

I reverted back to Total 1.53 and everything is fine now. Would you like me to recreate the issue and have you take a look at it?

Hello AJ,

I just went to Apple store to check new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Once I visited www.alisfashion.com on both devices I noticed the logo is blurry and not sharp. However, on my iPhone 5 and iPad Air the logo is nice and crisp (retina). What do you think the problem is?

Thank you.


Ok, now everything seems to be ok! Please disregard this issues!

Thank you.

Is there a way to remove the spacing between the images on the staff grid? You know like you have it for the image grid?

Ho AJ. As you know I use your theme since the beginning (I have been bothering you with questions for some while now) and thanks to the great service all works well.

Still I would like to know if for some change in the future you will have the posibility to introduce vertical header style / vertical menu as an option !! A client of mine asked for it and I don’t see how to change the actual header style into vertical. Would be great as an option for next update or perhaps there is a trick :)

Thanks again for all the great work. Remco

Hello, on ipad 2 in landscape mode top line is not visible. If turn to portrait it shows. I need to make it visible only on phones and tablets. It shows only if set visible always in settings. I tried to set visible only on tablets or hidden on PC and it’s not visible in landscape :(

First of all, great theme!

I am breaking my head over the following :

I am using header 1, i don’t want to use a logo because i’ve put them in the slider and second, how to center the navigation menu? Clearly it should be done by custom css but which code? Thanks for your help.

Please help stat! Every time I change anything on my pages with icon boxes, then update the page, the icon boxes, disappear, change, move, etc. The entire page messes up when I make one small change. Napervillechristianchurch.com

Hey A.J.

On your demo Home Page 2 you have Among The Stars Video in the slider as a background. I bought a copy of the movie but cannot figure out how to get it into the slider. Any tips?

Thanks – Dave M

Figured it out. I think. Thanks.

I was wrong. Any tips? Is there a slider among the downloadable demo files that has settings that would work for this. I just can’t get both the height and width correct. Thanks!

I’ve installed the Envato Toolkit as suggested and input the right keys but I’m not seeing anything to update the theme to 1.5.4. Any thoughts on why this is? Is there a problem with the auto-update? Many thanks!

Hi, can you help make clean H1 in all pages, cause it’s important for Yandex now to have clean H1 without class.
Now all pages have
<h1 class="page-header-title" />
how to remove class and leave clean H1 ? Thanks!

Did the “Site Skin” drop down get removed in 1.5.4? Did a local install and can’t find it in the styling tab?

Thanks in advance


Found it – it’s under appearance. Sorry about that

Hi again :)

I just noticed that “Ship to other adress?” on the checkout page is checked by default after updating to Woo 2.2.4. Updated from Total 1.53 to 1.54, that did not change anything.

Screen: http://prntscr.com/4owyzo

How can I make that field unchecked as default?

Thanks, Jan
