    Hi,

    Are you actually using our Total theme or are you using the free one on WP.org that someone else released years later? Because the theme settings are only for our item, since every theme works differently the settings must be added by the theme itself (not the plugin).

    Now, if you are using our Total theme and you aren’t seeing the settings the only reason for that is if your theme is outdated as this was added in a more recent update. Simply update your theme to access the new options 😉

    And if you still have issues leave me a comment on the ThemeForest Total item page so I can further assist.

    Hello AJ,

    I am definitely using the Total theme you built (version 4.8). I have been using CPT UI but I am experiencing trouble having archives for my custom post types. I was hoping that using the one you built would solve my issues.

    Oh great!

    Yes so the support for post types unlimited was added in Total 4.8.4 – https://wpexplorer-themes.com/total/changelog/

    The extra settings actually are defined inside the Total theme (the plugin has filters anyone can use to insert extra settings).

    So that would explain why you don’t have the options.

    And I’m actually going to be adding a few more options in the upcoming update such as masonry support for custom post type archives and author box for singular posts.

    Do let me know if you have other suggestions or issues after updating.

    How do I know I am running 4.8.4 and not just 4.8?? Sorry, I am not sure I understand what you said? Where do I define the extra settings “inside the total theme”? I still dont see the theme settings panel…

    And about suggestions, I would just make sure it’s easy to integrate custom post types to the archives. There is this plugin called “Custom Post Type Date Archives” that is suppose to do the trick but any archive link takes you to a completely blank page… (still works for regular posts tho).

    Thx AJ

    If you were using 4.8.4 it would say that in the WordPress admin instead of just 4.8. Make sure you have auto updates setup for your site by adding your product license in the theme pane – https://wpexplorer-themes.com/total/docs/update-theme/

    This way if your theme is outdated you will get a notice to update in your WP admin.

    But also if you are on 4.8.4 there was a small bug where you had to save your post type before you could access the Theme Settings, this was fixed in 4.8.5

    You do NOT have you define extra settings inside the Total theme. What I’m trying to explain is that the settings are not inside the plugin itself, they come from the theme so if your theme is outdated you won’t have them.

    I’ll check compatibility with the “Custom Post Type Date Archives” plugin.

    ps: For anything else regarding this subject, please ask on ThemeForest, since this is not the best place to ask for theme support. Thanks! – https://themeforest.net/item/total-responsive-multipurpose-wordpress-theme/6339019/comments

    Looks like I am running 4.8.3. I am suppose to have a multi-site license so not sure why it’s not offering me to update.

    Thx AJ I will comment on theme forest if anything else.

    There are some potential issues with non-Wordpress.org hosted themes and updates on multisite installations. As long as the theme is active on the primary installation it should work though. If you wanted to share logins with me via a ticket I can take a closer look to see what may be going on with the updates and see if I can patch things up (they are working for me on my multisite when testing) – https://wpexplorer-themes.com/support/

    Simply request that your ticket be forwarded to me.

    Alternatively you can use the Envato Market plugin. Because plugins work differently on multisite update notices should always work – https://www.wpexplorer.com/envato-market-plugin-guide/
