I was so frustrated over getting a theme and then struggling to customize every part of it due to lack of or unclear documentation. There were so many options available that I found myself a bit overwhelmed, Total is so well-documented, including videos, that I am able to successfully customize every aspect so far, down to the height of the menu bar when scrolling on mobile. I don’t know what it is about this theme that seems more accessible and intuitive to me. I was also struggling with other themes that had so many flashy features thrown onto one page, because I realized as I was editing the templates that I did not need them all. Total provides structure to every theme that makes sense and is related to each theme focus and is not overdone.
I also notice that Total looks more vibrant and sharp than other themes I looked at – it just stands out. That, coupled with the vast icon and typography choices, result in pages that are beautiful yet flow logically.
