So we switched themes to GP a week ago and since the switch, our traffic has plummeted. I’m not blaming the theme, I want to keep using it, but am stumped as to what the problem might be. Average time on page is hitting new lows, bounce rates etc. So I decided to install Hot Jar on the site, after an hour I noticed something very odd.
If you look at the examples below, you will see that the blog posts are showing *** asterisk symbols instead of the actual numbers, for everything that has a number. So the post date, numbers in the header, subheader, sidebar. Everywhere you see a number, it’s replaced by an asterisk.
I’m so confused. I’ve tried loading the entire site in a cross-browser testing tool and cannot emulate the problem. So my question is, can you see the problem on your side and have you seen this before?
