It's challenging to get it off the ground. I'm a seasoned WordPress user and I can't get my website to look right after installing this theme.
Hi, this is AJ the theme developer. It looks like you opened a ticket shortly before leaving this rating and our support staff has responded is we are waiting for your reply. It does look like there is either a CSS conflict with a plugin or a setting has been changed in the theme which is simply causing things to look a bit off and should be a very easy fix. You sent over logins so we could log in and look but it seems you have switched the default login page so it's not located at site.com/wp-admin so we aren't able to log in and look (when trying to access the default login page it says "this feature is disabled". Please let us know the correct URL so we can log in and see what is going on and get this issue sorted out asap. Thanks! And if you need any help tweaking things after to get the theme looking how you want let us know.
I love this theme. This theme is the best coded theme I've ever used.
I have used several Themify themes and they always break and you spend forever waiting for their techs to respond to your request for help then you wind up with ton of custom css because they just dump their new themes without any Q&A . I've also used Elegant's Demi Theme and their owner Nik doesn't care about SEO or page speed he just cares about pretty design.
Total is so well designed for ease on the front and backend that my website tests well on pagespeed and pingdom. It was getting a grade of 98 and speed of 2 seconds without any cacheing and when i configured W3tc cache plugin it was getting 99 with speed of 1.3 seconds. No CDN
I've only had to contact support once in the year and a half that I've been using it and that was when I was new to the theme. It runs so well I let the support lapse because you don't need it. If anything crashes on an update I can always sign up for it again. Say what you want about Envato and Themeforest but Total Theme is beyond solid.
Unpacking the package…
Installing the theme…
The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.
Theme installation failed.
This is a very common error users run into when they try to install the incorrect zip file. If you log into Themeforest and go to your "downloads" section you simply need to select the "Installable WordPress file only" zip option to download and install. We have detailed instructions and a video guide on our online documentation site that you can follow along with (https://wpexplorer-themes.com/total/docs/how-to-install-your-theme/). If you're still having trouble, we're always happy to help if you open a ticket (https://wpexplorer-themes.com/request-support/).
WP Explorer created a truly superior product in the Total Theme. I considered going with the Avada theme at one point; this beats it, hands-down. The Total Theme is just plain superior, in every way. Truly customizable, flexible, and support is AMAZING!! Worth every penny. You won't be disappointed.
