Installing DiviLabs Child Theme
Before we begin, make sure you have Divi installed on WordPress before installing this child theme. Do this on a fresh WordPress installation.
Important: Only install the Divi theme, not the Divi builder (the Divi theme includes the Divi builder if you install both then this can cause conflicts).
When building the website I recommend not to use any caching plugins. When finished building the website you can install them.
The Divi theme is not included in this package. To download Divi, you must have an Elegant Themes Membership.
Images have been replaced due to licensing.
The page links from buttons and logo are removed, so you need to relink those to the right pages.
Download and unzip the ‘DiviLabs_Child_Theme_UNPACKME.zip’ file to your computer.
In your WordPress dashboard navigate to Appearance > Themes and click on Add New.
Locate the divilabs-child-theme.zip file in the Divilabs_Child_Theme_UNPACKME folder on your computer and then click Install Now.
When the install is complete click on ‘Activate’, you will then see the Divilabs Child Theme as the active theme in your theme panel.
Go to Divi > Theme Options. Click on the import/export options (up/down arrow).
Click on Import and upload Divilabs Theme Options.json.
Go to Divi > Theme Builder. Click on the import/export options.
Click on Import and upload Divilabs Builder Templates.json.
Go to Divi > Theme Customisation. Click on the import/export options (up/down arrow).
Click on Import and upload Divilabs Customizer Settings.json.
Go to Divi > Divi Library. Click on the import/export options.
Click on Import and upload Divilabs Builder Layouts.json.
Go to Pages > Add New. Give your page a name for example Home.
Click on Use Divi Builder
Click on choose a premade layout
Go to the tab Your Saved Layouts
Here you will find all the pages from the demo. Load the Home page Divilabs and publish it.
To add the other pages as in the demo you do the same steps as above.
Go to Appearance > Menus and create a menu and add your page(s) to it.
Go to Settings > Reading. Check A static page
Set Homepage: to your home page
Leave the post page unset
Customize header and footer
To make edits in the header
Go to Divi > Theme Builder > Global Header
To make edits in the Footer
Go to Divi > Theme Builder > Global Footer
To customize the slide-in go to:
Divi > Theme Builder and open the Global Header
And change to wireframe mode
Now you can see and change the slide-in.
How to activate the slide-in
You can activate the slide-in with any button or link.
For example you want to add a button module somewere on your page and when you click on it the slide-in needs to appear.
There are 2 things you need to do:
The link needs to be #slideopen. You can replace slideopen with something else if you like but it need to have the # symbol before.
Go to the advanced tab > CSS ID & Classes and add this CSS class sliding_button_cta in the CSS Class field

To change the blog template go to Divi > Theme Builder > All Posts and open thecustom body.
The changes you make here will affect all posts.
