Installing Advice Child Theme

Requirements

Before we begin, make sure you have Divi installed on WordPress before installing this child theme. We recommend doing this on a fresh WordPress installation.

The Divi theme is not included in this package. To download Divi, you must have an Elegant Themes Membership.

Some 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.

Step 1

Download and unzip the ‘Advice_Child_Theme_UNPACKME.zip’ file to your computer.

Step 2

In your WordPress dashboard navigate to Appearance > Themes and click on Add New.

Locate the advice.zip file in the Advice_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 Advice Child Theme as the active theme in your theme panel.

Step 3

After activating Advice, you will see at the top:

This theme recommends the following plugins: Sticky Menu (or Anything!) on Scroll.

Begin installing this plugin by clicking on Begin installing plugins.

On the next screen, you need to check the plugin and choose to install in the dropdown. Hit apply, and the progress will begin.

When the progress has finished click on “Return to Required Plugins Installer.”

Now you need to activate the plugin.

Step 4

Go to Divi > Theme Options. Click on the import/export options (up/down arrow).
Click on Import and upload Advice Theme Options.json.

Go to Divi > Theme Customisation. Click on the import/export options (up/down arrow).
Click on Import and upload Advice Customizer Settings.json.

Go to Divi > Divi Library. Click on the import/export options.
Click on Import and upload Advice Builder Layouts.json.

Go to Settings > Sticky Menu (or Anything!)
In the sticky element field, add the following #stickybar

In the Do not stick element when screen smaller than: (optional)  field fill in 981

Go to the advanced settings tab and in the field Z-index fill in 999

Sticky menu options

Step 5

Go to Pages > Add New. Give your page a name for example Home.

In the Divi Builder Click on Load Layout then click on Your Saved Layouts.

Here you will find all the pages from the demo. Load the Home page for Advise and publish it.

Don’t forget to add a menu and set the Home page as static.

To add the other pages just follow step 5 and choose the page layout you want to use.

 

Step 6

Go to appearance > Menus and create a new menu. Name it main navigation and assign it as the primary menu.

Add the home page to this menu. In the Demo I removed the home text and used an icon. To do this do the following:

Remove the navigation label home and replace it with the icon you can find on

http://fontawesome.io/icon/home/

Add the class home_icon (if you don’t see the class field then go to the top of your screen and click on screen options then check the CSS classes box)

Assign menu to 404 page

You need to assign the right menu for the 404 page.

Go to Divi > Divi Library and open the 404 page open the Fullwidth Menu Module this is a global section. And choose your Menu.

menu

Changing logo and header information

We made the header as a global section. This means that every page that has this global section will be the same. So if you adjust one, then all the pages that have the same global section will be changed as well.

In this design, we made the top header, menu, and footer as a global section. You can notice this by the yellow/green color of these sections.

 

Changing logo and other information in the header

To change the logo, you open any page that you have created. And you open the first image and place your logo in it.

So all the pages that have this global section will have your logo now. And every new page that you will be creating as well.

Same goes for the review image and the phone number. If for example, you don’t want the review image then you can just remove this or replace with any other Divi module.

Creating a blog post

To create a blog post with the same layout as Advice you do the following:

Go to Posts > Add New
Go to Load From Library > Add From Library and choose Single post.

In the right upper right corner, you find the Divi Post Settings. Make the following adjustments:

Page Layout: Full Width
Post Title: Hide

Post settings

Important

Place in the excerpt box the text that you want to show on the blog page or blog grid page.

You find this box under the Divi page builder in the post page.

 

Excerpt box

Create your own page

If you want to create a custom page, but you want to use the same header, menu, and footer. You can easily achieve this by following these steps:

Go to Pages > Add New.
Click on the Divi Page Builder button.
Click on Add From Library and load Top Header Global.
Do the same with Menu Global, Contact bottom global and Footer Global.
Arrange them in the right order.
Now you can create the other sections/rows that you want.

404 and category page

To edit the content of the 404 and category page, you go to Divi > Divi Library.

Then you open the 404 or category page. You can make your edits here.
