Updated on December 8, 2021

total wordpress theme review

After installing WordPress, the first thing we do is install a theme that’s a good fit for the business requirements. As WordPress users, we can choose from thousands of themes available in various marketplaces. And finding themes may not be a challenge, but finding the right WordPress theme that is well coded and follows industry standards is not an easy job.

A good theme fulfills the requirements, helps your WordPress site load faster, and provides a great overall user experience. Frequently updated themes also offer robust security and do not have an expiry date that we need to worry about.

WPExplorer, in that regard, is one of the better-known brands that develop plugins and themes. They have developed a multipurpose WordPress theme, Total, that follows the latest industry standards and offers maximum performance to any WordPress site. In this article, I will review the Total WordPress Theme from WPExplorer to help you decide if this theme fits your needs.

Total Theme Overview

The Total WordPress theme offers a magnificent layout for your WordPress website, with industry-standard features, free updates, and high customizability. As a result, the theme has raked in over 32,000 sales at ThemeForest alone.

During the review, I found it to be, by far, the most optimized, simple, and versatile theme option I ever came across. Personally, I loved the look and feel, and the way it’s coded is amazing. Besides having the best-built quality, the theme can incorporate multiple features for additional functionality.

All this surely makes Total rank amongst the best WordPress themes available out there.

Let’s go ahead and find out what theme has to offer.

Total Theme Features

The Total theme comes with more than 45 different heading templates you can download to experiment and mix-and-match.

Here is a list of features that Total theme encompasses

Frontend & Backend Editors

The Total theme plugin offers both frontend & backend editing. With the WPBakery Page Builder plugin that comes free with the theme, you can create content at the backend and even deploy changes inline at the frontend.

Using the frontend builder, users can see changes happening in real-time, while the backend builder offers more control over building the target pages. This functionality simplifies the process and shortens the turnaround time for custom pages.

Drag and Drop Builder

This is what the frontend builder is all about. It lets you drag and drop components directly to your page and makes the designing the layout process extremely easy. This is an excellent feature for people who are not well versed in designing tools but still want to create awesome-looking pages.

Another cool feature I would like to highlight here is the ability to add custom CSS. If you are not satisfied with the default layout, you can alter it using your own CSS right within the builder.

Responsive Design

Total WordPress theme is a modern theme and comes with a unique responsive design. Feel free when you assemble your content because no matter what device you are using, your content will be compatible with every device.

The result can also be verified using the Responsive Preview inside the builder.

100+ Builder Blocks

The 100+ Builder Block feature enables you to add a pop-out window to your website with 50+ modules for your post and pages. With a wide range of Builder Blocks, you can build your web page layouts the way you want them.

Adding elements like Google Maps, Charts, and Social sharing icons is just one click away as well. All these cool elements are accessible directly from the builder.

Font Awesome Icons

The Total theme for the WordPress website comes with an integrated feature of Font Awesome Icons. Font Awesome Icons comes with 500+ unique and scalable icons for different posts and pages. You can add other unique icons to various aspects, features, and services on your website with just a few clicks.

Boxed & Full-Width Layouts

Total WordPress theme offers you a Boxed & Full Width layout that allows you to quickly switch your website’s layout on the screen. It removes the discrepancies that involve digging deep into the stylesheets for selecting the required layout for your website.

It is a handy option for digital agencies who have to build websites on both the layout formats depending on the client’s requirements.

Custom Post Types

The theme comes with pre-built custom posts for Portfolio, Staff, and Testimonials. With custom post types, you can create custom posts for your website without getting into the hassles of complex backend coding and CSS design queries. You can customize each post type’s name and add additional custom posts using a free plugin, Custom Posts Types UI.

Unlimited Theme

At Total WordPress, themes are present abundantly. Once you start using the Total theme, you can easily find that one can change the colors of background and fonts, unlimited portfolios, color options, staff, testimonials, blogs, page layouts, and more!

Translation Ready

With Total WordPress Theme, you get the .po and .mo files (located inside the languages folder). With the help of these, you can easily translate your page content into popular target languages.

Moreover, Total comes with a translatable theme panel making it easier for you to switch to a language or multiple languages.

Child Theme Ready

Having a child theme in WordPress has a lot of advantages. Updating the WordPress or theme itself does not spoil the styling done in the child theme and saves a lot of time in fixing the layout.  At Total theme, they’ve paid close attention to adding functionalities related to child themes. With child themes integration, a person can easily extract required files from the parent theme and make changes for future references.

Another cool feature is the Action Hooks Theme Panel present inside the theme panel. With this, you can easily define custom hooks for child theme functionalities.

WooCommerce Support

With WooCommerce, creating online shop stores is like shooting fish in a barrel. Total Theme comes with an already installed WooCommerce Support Plugin that makes it easier for you to make an online store and start selling products to make extra dollars from it.

The theme’s visual builder has the options available just for WooCommerce, through which you can add additional functionalities to the mix.

SEO Optimized

While designing Total Theme, I observed that they only used semantic valid HTML codes. The headline tags and headings are SEO optimized when you access the theme’s developing tool. One more thing to add to it is that the Total theme is W3TC valid.

Power Elite Author

Created by Envato, the Power Elite author plugin enables your WordPress theme to be content optimized the way you wish to see it. Accountable for more than a million-dollar in sales, Power Elite Author gives your Total Theme a fantastic look on your website.

Customer Support

Total Theme offers commendable Customer Support for your website. They have a quick response time, and the technical support team is always present to provide you the service you require just in few minutes.

Advanced Features

The Total WordPress theme’s official page provides you insight into a few more available features on the Total web store.

  • For instance, Shortcodes comes with many provided features, such as adding parallax background, Icons, positioning headers, etc.
  • The portfolio option comes with several other options: columns, pagination, no margins, Masonry Grid, Portraits, etc.
  • The same options are applicable for Staff and Testimonials as well.
  • In Total WordPress themes, you can also add a shop widget to your website now. Shop widget helps you sell your products online through your website.

Why Should You Choose Total WordPress Theme?

WordPress comes with thousands of themes to choose from. You can find many themes on the WordPress store; however, all cannot offer what Total Theme has in store for you. With Total WordPress theme, you can now have the customizability option that you never had before. It provides you the essence of working with creativity and adding imaginative concepts to your WordPress website.

Moreover, it is the only theme that comes with Frontend and Backend editing, which helps you add shortcodes and add inline editing options that mostly theme builders fail to offer.

A total WordPress theme is a complete theme package that works well with any WordPress site, whether it is a business, portfolio, blog, eCommerce store, or anything else you want to create.
