When you first install the Total theme you may want to hide the front-end from visitors while you set things up for the final launch.
Total includes a built-in “Under Construction” add-on which you can use to redirect any “non-logged-in” users to your page of choice. This will allow you to create a cool “coming soon” or “under construction” page using the Visual Composer page builder without having to install 3rd party plugins that may or may not work and don’t allow you to take advantage of all the awesome building blocks. And if you want to share the site with a client, simply create an account for them and they can log in and view the site!
To enable simply go to Theme Panel -> General and make sure the “addon” is enabled. Then go to Theme Panel -> Under Construction and select your page to redirect users to.
Removing Header/Footer from Under Construction Page?
By default the under construction page will still display the header and footer of your site. However, these can be disabled easily using the page settings or by simply selecting the “landing page” template.
