Hi, I found that the jquery javascript was replaced by vanilla one, but jquery.min.js was still loaded, just wonder if it is possible to eliminate this? I don’t use slider, thanks in advance!

Hi,

This is Aj the theme author.

There are 2 theme functions that still require jQuery but can be changed. See here:

That said, if you are using the WPBakery page builder or Elementor, these plugins do use jQuery and so it will still be loaded. Only the theme’s javascript was optimized to use Vanilla JS, I don’t have control over how other plugins function.

But it is possible to use a little code to remove the javascript from WPBakery which I can give to you if you want. As long as you aren’t using animations, tabs, tours, accordions, then you could disable the WPBakery javascript. In fact I can just make a little plugin that does this and send it to you if you want to test.

Thanks and as I use tabs by wpbakery, so I don’t think it possile to eliminate the jquery script, thanks anyway!

It would be great to have an option to control line length for body text. For example, I would like to be able to set the max line length to 80 characters.

EX: https://baymard.com/blog/line-length-readability

Hi,

This is Aj the theme author.

It is possible to limit the length of your body text but the way to do that will very from site to site as it depends on various factors (are you using a sidebar or not, do you want to limit the width of your entire site or just the blog, your font-size, etc). It would be impossible to basically have 1 setting that could work for every case scenario so the way you go about doing this would be based on how you are setting your site up.

1. You can adjust the width of your whole site via the Customizer – https://wpexplorer-themes.com/total/docs/customize-your-layout-widths/ – so you can limit the width of your main site as well as the width of your content area (if you are using a sidebar).

2. You could create a custom template just for your blog (if that’s the main concern) – https://wpexplorer-themes.com/total/docs/custom-blog-post-wpbakery-template/ – and make the content smaller by using the max-width options when creating your template.

For example on this demo – https://total.wpexplorer.com/worship/ (a new demo I’m releasing today) – you can see if you go to the blog and click on a post that the articles are much narrower than the default site width. This is done via a template and the max-width option. See here:

3. You could also just use a little CSS if you prefer to limit the width of your main content. Example: https://a.cl.ly/JruoAWOL

.single-blog-article {
    max-width: 600px;
    margin: 0 auto;
}

This CSS would target only your blog posts but could be modified to target other content.

If you want you can share your URL and I can provide some feedback on how you may go about limiting your body width.

Just explaining on a small conflict we have / had when using WP ROCKET cache combine CSS.

I’ll spare you the hours of debugging, but I had to exclude :

/wp-content/themes/Total/assets/css/wpex-wpbakery.css /wp-content/themes/Total/assets/css/wpex-mobile-menu-breakpoint-max.css

from the combine and minification as the file code seemed to be combining in the wrong order causing issues like this;

Nav bar still visible when it shouldn’t be https://i.snipboard.io/LOF9mY.jpg

Full width sections being full width but not inside the page container

EG this https://i.snipboard.io/w7xSpb.jpg instead of https://i.snipboard.io/hMpaRD.jpg

Anyway, if there is something you can do please help if not then we can leave these files not combined

Hi,

The order of these files shouldn’t matter because there is nothing inside wpex-wpbakery.css that would conflict with the mobile menu breakpoint file (that file only targets wpbakery elements).

That said, there is a known issue with WPRocket that is improperly minifying a calc() value from wpex-wpbakery.css and combining 2 properties ( https://a.cl.ly/nOuXENpk – wprocket is combining the left and right paddint into a single line), thus breaking the CSS in that file. I’m thinking that this is issue is causing further CSS to break. If you only exclude the wpex-wpbakery.css file does everything work as expected?

In which case you would need to reach out to WPRocket to fix the issue.

- AJ

ps: Not sure if you know this, but combining CSS can actually slow down the site as opposed to loading all the files separately. They even explain it on the WPRocket docs – https://docs.wp-rocket.me/article/1009-configuration-for-http-2

Have a good evening. I bought your Total theme; but the theme has a serious problem with the google speed test; the loading of the FCP and LCP element in particular is very slow; how is it possible that there is such a serious problem on such an important factor? Best regards

Oh sorry I circled “CLS” on my screenshot above, not FCP (sorry for any confusion). That said FCP and LCP are primarily going to be due to your server speed. If you can share the URL though I can let you know if there are any changes you can make to help with that but usually those issues would be fixed by upgrading to better hosting. Where is your site hosted and on what plan?

- AJ

Hi AJ, thank you for your reply and for taking your time. The problem is in the mobile version; the site is https://incidenterisarcitogratis.it The values of FCP and LCP are very slow, although I have activated the SG Optimizer optimizations. The hosting is Siteground. If you can help me speed up these two parameters I will be grateful. In the meantime, thank you and have a good day

Hi,

In terms of speeding up your site apart from upgrading servers there are some things you can do! For example on your homepage you have a Google map embed – https://a.cl.ly/d5uOlG64 – this will significantly affect your scores because it’s loading an iFrame from a 3rd party API and many additional scripts. You can see that in your Google Insights score report – https://a.cl.ly/eDuXkmXY – Google Maps is adding a lot to your blocking time. Google Maps is also the biggest issue when it comes to Javascript execution – https://a.cl.ly/X6uRWgQ5

You could try looking for a lazy loading plugin for Google map embeds, but you will get the best results from removing the map completely and replacing it either with a photo or at the map on it’s own page and link to it (like a contact or about page).

Page Insights is ok, but it doesn’t provide very good details when actually troubleshooting a slow website so I would recommend instead using Gtmetrix – https://gtmetrix.com/ – this site is much better when actually analyzing you site to see what is loading slow. And you can see when testing your site on there that there is a lot of time being spent on the SSL connection: https://a.cl.ly/X6uRWgp0 (for example)

So perhaps there are some SSL improvements that can be made on your site (this would be something to ask your host about).

You can see a comparison between your site and the Total landing page – https://a.cl.ly/6quzRmOp – notice how much longer your server is taking to connect, this will significantly affect your FCP and LCP scores. This is something completely outside the scope of your actual website and theme because this is the time it’s taking for your site to connect before anything is even displayed.

Now, siteGround is a good host, but it’s also shared hosting and it is considered “budget hosting” so you may not expect the same sort of speed as other hosting such as WPEngine, Kinsta, etc…Have you tried using CloudFlare on your site to help speed things up – https://www.siteground.com/tutorials/cloudflare/

Hope this helps, let me know if you have any followup questions or want some added recommendations!

- AJ

ps: Your server is blocking the theme font icons because your https is not setup correctly – https://a.cl.ly/bLuB6XNb (it’s impossible to tell from looking at the live site, but most likely your WordPress Address and Site Address aren’t using HTTPS protocols under Settings > General – https://a.cl.ly/7Ku6179L – or perhaps there is an issue in the Site Ground settings.

Hi AJ,

In an older site I used the build-in post type staff and renamed it, but moving forward I need to migrate these staff posts to their own type within your PTU unlimited plugin. I’m trying the plug-in Post Type switcher but that doesn’t work in the bulk edit. I used that plugin before with other post types (not total) Any recommendations?

Thanks

Hi,

I wonder if there is an issue with the bulk edit function, does it just not allow you to select the new post type or it just won’t move them? I’ve tried the plugin in the past and it worked just fine, there is also this plugin if you want to give it a go: https://wordpress.org/plugins/post-type-transfer/

- AJ

ps: If you aren’t scared to use PHPMyAdmin to run an SQL query it would probably look something like this:

UPDATE wp_posts SET post_type = 'new_post_type_name' WHERE post_type = 'staff'

Found a decent Youtube video showing how to do that: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qvr2KQUBKIo

This way you don’t have to install any plugins and it should be a quick process as long as you have access to the database.

Thanks, no problem with SQL. What could possible go wrong as long you have a backup :)

Hi AJ,

Can you please look at this error http://valliartgallery.com/

The initial domain was valliartllc but that doesn’t exist any more and we are using this new one since a few years ago. We run some updates and this error came up.

Thanks
