Installing Advice Child Theme
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.
Download and unzip the ‘Advice_Child_Theme_UNPACKME.zip’ file to your computer.
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.
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.
Now you need to activate the plugin.
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 Builder. Click on the import/export options.
Click on Import and upload Advice Theme Builder Templates.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
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.
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
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)
Creating a blog post
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
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.
