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.

Step 1

Download and unzip the ‘’ file to your computer.

Step 2

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

Locate the 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.

Step 3

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.

Step 4

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.


Step 5

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


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.

Mobile menu

For mobile I have created a collapsing menu with thanks to Donjete Vuniqi and Elegant Themes for creating this tutorial

To create these nested menu items you only need to add some classes.

Adding the CSS class first-level to the first level menu items that contain sub menu items. In this example, that means adding the CSS class to the ‘Services’ and ‘Pages’ menu items.

Note: you can enable the CSS classes option by clicking on ‘Screen Options’ and enabling ‘CSS Classes’

For the second level menu items you add this class second-level.

For a third level menu item you need to give that second level menu item an extra class third-level

And then you give the sub menu items from the third level again the second-level class. 

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
