Installing DM 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 ‘DM_Divi_Child_Theme_UNPACKME.zip’ file to your computer.
In your WordPress dashboard navigate to Appearance > Themes and click on Add New.
Locate the dm-div-child-theme.zip file in the DM_Divi_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 DM 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 DM Theme Options.json.
Go to Divi > Theme Builder. Click on the import/export options.
Click on Import and upload DM Builder Templates.json.
Go to Divi > Theme Customisation. Click on the import/export options (up/down arrow).
Click on Import and upload DM Customizer Settings.json.
Go to Divi > Divi Library. Click on the import/export options.
Click on Import and upload DM 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 DM 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
Add images to the homepage gallery section DESKTOP for Home Page 2
Add background images for each tile (1 to 6) on hover
Upload 6 images in your media library that you want to use as a backgound when you hover over a tile. Upload images that have atleast a size of 1240 by 813px. I do recommend to make the mb size of the images as low as possible.
Go to appreance > editor scroll down to around line 55 and you will see this:
At line 56, 60, 64, 68, 73 and 77 you can replace INSERT_IMAGE_URL_HERE with the images you just uploaded in step 1. IMAGE GRID 1 is for tile 1 etc.
How to get the image link
To get the image link go to your media library and click on the image you want to use as a background.
Then replace INSERT_IMAGE_URL_HERE with your image, like this:
Do the same for the others.
When you did the steps above your image grid will work. However the images will start loading until you hover over a title this will cause a small delay. To avoid this we need to preload the images. At line 85 to 90 you can insert the same URL’s that you did previous.
I also add here the icons on hover in the image grid so that those are preloaded as well.
Homepage gallery section TABLET/MOBILE
For tablet and mobile view I have created a seperated services section.
To customize the slide-in go to Divi > Theme Builder > Global Footer.
If you are on a small screen and you have trouble clicking on the elements, then switch over to wireframe mode on the bottom left.
Category menu on blog and category pages
On the blog and category pages you will see this category menu:
This is a global section and I have placed this on the blog and category pages. So if you change this it will change on all these pages aswell.
Wnhen you open the text module and go to the text tab you will see this:
When you have created some blog categories you can change these with yours.
You replace this # with your category URL and the text name with yours (marketing, SEO, strategy)
Creating a blog post
To create a blog post with the same layout as DM you do the following:
Go to Posts > Add New
Go to Load From Library > Add From Library and choose Single Post DM.
In the right upper right corner, you find the Divi Post Settings. Make the following adjustments:
Page Layout: Full Width
Post Title: Hide
