Hi AJ –
I am using the heading module and having a very weird bug. The typography is set as H2 and is showing up properly. However, when add a link to the header (using the link tab), the typography completely changes – it’s picking it up from somewhere else, font, size, and color.

Have any ideas?


The reason for this is because you have custom CSS on your site like this:

.entry h2 {
    font-family: "Montserrat";
    font-weight: 500;
    font-style: normal;
    font-size: 26px;
    color: #004680;
    line-height: 34px;
    letter-spacing: -.5px;

But the CSS isn’t specific enough so it won’t override h2 tweaks you made in the Customizer under Typography > Entry H2 because the heading class is applied to the link now instead of the H2 so your priority doesn’t work – https://cl.ly/847ec7

If you want to target the heading module as well try this:

.entry h2,
body .vcex-heading {
    font-family: "Montserrat";
    font-weight: 500;
    font-style: normal;
    font-size: 26px;
    color: #004680;
    line-height: 34px;
    letter-spacing: -.5px;

or instead adjust the settings in the Customizer to what you really want all h2’s to look like and remove the extra custom CSS.

Hi AJ – Thanks for this info.
But I’m a bit confused. I didn’t put in any custom CSS for entry h2. Where do you see it and how can I see it/remove it?
There isn’t CSS like this in the themepanel CSS.
Thanks – J

HI – I saw the video and can see on the webpage that the custom CSS is there – but I don’t understand where it is in the dashboard/customizer/themepanel CSS. I am using the page builder, module, and customizer. Where this custom CSS code is coming from is beyond me … thanks for your help

Hi, I’ve noticed that your theme has very poor PageSpeed Insight score for mobile device. Not only for my site but I tested some next from Comments here. Do you have any instruction or information how improve css loading, etc.?

Hi AJ,

there is a problem with the translation of the theme. I sent a ticket with screenshots. Please check the ticket personally, there is something else included. ;-)

And don’t forget :grin: – you did a great job again and your support always earns 5 stars.

Best regards

Hi AJ,

I’m looking to upgrade a client’s website from your old Econo theme to Total. I’d like to be as efficient as possible. What do you think is the best approach?

I’ve created a subdomain to rebuild and streamline the site at http://pps.whitbeckweb.com. And it looks like your Classy demo is pretty close in layout to the old Econo theme, which is used for http://providencepsychology.com/ The client’s site looks wider, though. It’s been so long, I don’t remember what I did, but I’m sure I added a lot of custom CSS.

Should I import the Classy data and rebuild? Should I duplicate the Econo-based site and switch to Total and try to address crossover issues? I don’t know if the theme switch would work well or not.

Thanks in advance for your input. (I plan to purchase another license for Total to use for the e-commerce venture I had mentioned somewhat recently.)

Kind regards,


Hello AJ, I just wanted to warn you that maybe you forgot to fix the doubled radio buttons in the woocommerce checkout page: https://www.robertorizzoart.net/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/screensh.jpg

Moreover, as you probably know, I bought and installed Total on my Italian website too and I love it! I noticed that the phrase ‘This Post Has One Comment’ above the commen section is not automatically translated as it is in the rest of the website. What should I do to change it in Italian? http://www.robertorizzo.com/16087/sassi-dipinti-rock-painting/due-nuovi-sassi-dipinti-con-gatti/

Thank you very much in advance!


Hi Aj, for hours I´m trying to find the error why on my one page site the local scroll main menu isn´t working: https://www.yoga-royal.com/

I followed this https://wpexplorer-themes.com/total/docs/creating-local-scroll-menu/ but not sure what I´m doing wrong.

If I open a new page with the direct link https://www.yoga-royal.com/#preise it´s working but the local scroll is not working when on the site. Strangely the local link is working with the price module button but not on the main menu.

Any idea what this could be?

Thanks Daniel

Hi, how do I change the slider image on the Paris theme? I have my website setup nicely, i’ve moved things around but now I would like to replace the current image. I’ve noticed that the Revolution Slider plugin is required with this theme and I had installed it at the time of theme installation. I checked Revolution Slider and it says that I don’t currently have any sliders?

Also, is there a way for me to have the milestone counter to count up to “100+” as opposed to just “100”. If there is no way of doing this for counting up, how could I change the text so it shows “100+” and the text just stays still?

Thanks Lewis

I am having an issue with a menu item with a local scroll link. When it is on the local scroll page, the “Offset Overlay Header” works. But when coming from a different page, it does not.

You can see the problem here: https://wednesdaynighthop.com/#lessons You can click on the Lessons menu item from the main page or another page to see the difference.

Nevermind, I think I fixed it. The problem is that I had set the row ID the same as anchor ID, ie as ‘lessons’. Maybe you should add this to the documentation.

The Total theme does not have dropcaps. 5 years ago there was a comment but nothing else.. Can you build dropcaps into the next release? Example: https://www.cyberlynk.net/company-information/cyberlynk-history/ – refer to the years in large/bold.

Hi AJ, I’ve updated a couple of my sites to the latest version of Total today and have noticed the icon boxes aren’t displaying the same as before. See an example here https://www.dropbox.com/s/wnyef56ikd7we9m/Icon%20Boxes.jpg?dl=0

Just wondering if this is just a bug or if I need to do something to fix? Many Thanks, Lucy

Hi AJ. I don’t know since or the last update make incompatible Let’s Review plugin. The criterias scores not show up. I have disable all plugin to check. It work fine on the standard theme so must be conflict with Total. Example page : https://www.wpthaiuser.com/code-snippets/ I can upload the plugin file if you could help. It is very important for my website and I don’t need to change plugin as this one is looking perfect for my site. Thank you. Emily

Ok. I figure it out that they use the FontAwesome fa class to show the star. Lucky the plugin has options to load FontAwesome locally.

Do you have any plan or the way how to fix this in case other plugins use FontAwesome like this? Are there a way to force the fa fa-xxxx to use ticon instead?

Hi AJ, is it possible to create a staff grid with popup modal as in this site e.g. visitor clicks on the staff pic/link which brings up the bio – with next and previous buttons with the Total Theme?

Hi AJ. I’m reporting the same problem as lucyjordanoff – all ICON BOXes are broken after the recent update … any idea on how to fix it?

Hi A.J. Great fan, thank you for your work! Hope you’re doing well!

With the latest update of the theme there are many changes to the ‘look and feel’ of the Woocommerce area. The ‘add to cart’ changed, you added a new hoover, I change that to the old lay out because we liked that so much, but the button ‘Add to cart’ is linked with the accent color of the site, this makes the button colourful, I just want the ‘Add to cart’ text in black with the hover on the text as well, how can I do that?

The Woocommerce checkout page changed as well, ‘Your order’ and ‘the payment options’ are in the same column and it does not look nice, do you have a solution?

Thank you, Eugenie

Hi there

Sorry to ask something so basic. I’d like to add those nice page settings in the editor to use with Memberpress and LearnDash.

I know there is a sample code here, which looks like it will sort it, thank you: https://wpexplorer-themes.com/total/docs/page-settings-metabox/

but do you know what the post types for Memberpress and LearnDash are actually called, so what I would replace ‘custom-type’ with? Would just ‘Memberpress’; ‘LearnDash’ work? or is it more subtle than that?

(Sorry, I just want to get it right….I’ve got nervous as every time I try and add something to the functions.php my site crashes)


Hi A.J. Elementor looks pretty nice. Are you still planning on bundling it in a future release? If so, would it include all of the features of the pro version as well as your custom modules?


Hi AJ! Loving the theme so far. When the header is sticky on mobile, the header shrinks slightly when scrolling down the page. Is it possible to fix this?

Hi AJ, we had contact last week about the icon box wp bakery element not functioning normal. I have another big issue with it. I’ve built a CTA bar with icon boxes and they are all messed up after theme update. Here you can see before update: http://scheepjeshof.thenextfysio.nl. Here’s after: https://www.unscaredfysio.com/. I can give you access if you need, just drop me a mail! Would very much appreciate a fix soon! Thanks!

Hi. I just started customizing my new total theme, but I can’t for the life of me find the social share options. It’s just not under general theme options in the customizer. Can you help?
