Read this before you start

If you are working in the visual builder then it can happen that you don’t see a particular module, if this is the case then switch over the Wire frame mode it will be visible then. See image below how to activate the wireframe mode.

Some of the sections that are created will not work in the visual builder. These sections are:

  • The top bar
  • Image grid on the home page
  • Custom Footer

You can change the content and color of these sections in Divi > Divi Library this will be explained in this documentation

Some sections are duplicated, I did this for a better mobile view. So one of the section is only visible for desktop and the other for mobile devices. Keep in mind that you can see duplicated sections. I did this for the main header on the home page and for 2 sections on the about me page.

Installing Duriza 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 don’t use any caching plugins, you can use these after your website is finished.

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 images that are used are from shutterstock and you can get them here.

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 ‘Duriza_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 duriza_div_child_theme.zip file in the Duriza_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 Duriza 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 Duriza Theme Options.json.

Go to Divi > Theme Builder. Click on the import/export options.
Click on Import and upload Duriza Theme Builder Templates.json.

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

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

Step 4

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 Duriza and publish it.

To add the other pages as in the demo you do the same steps as above. Create a new page for example About us. Then you go Load Layout then click on Your Saved Layouts and pick the page layout you want to use.

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

Add images to the grid

The first image you see when you are not hovering over anything else can be changed in the row > background.

Add background images for each column on hover

Step 1
Upload 4 images in your media library that you want to use as a backgound when you hover over a column. Upload images that have a size of 1080x425px. make all the images the same size or it will look weird when hovering over them.

Step 2
Go to appreance > editor scroll down to around line 69 and you will see this:

At line 71, 76, 81 and 86 you can replace INSERT_IMAGE_URL_HERE with the images you just uploaded in step 1. image grid 1 is for column 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.

Step 3

When you did the steps above your image grid will work. However the images will start loading until you hover over a column this will cause a small delay. To avoid this we need to preload the images. At line 93 to 96 you can insert the same URL’s that you did previous.

Step 4

To change the text in the images go to the home page and activate the visual builder then change the mode to Wireframe

You can change the text in the 4 text modules.

Add arrows to the dropdown and side menu

To add the arrows in front of the dropdown menu items and in the side menu you have to add this line infront of it:

<i class="fas fa-chevron-right"></i>

Sidebar menu (Services)

Follow the steps below to create the services menu for your services pages

Go to Appearance > Menus and create a new menu. Under Menu Settings don’t check anything. In this menu you need to add the pages you want to show up in the sidebar.


Go to Appearance > Widgets add a new sidebar (You need to refresh the page in order to see the new sidebar)

Add the Navigation widget to this sidebar and assign the services menu to it

When you create a page with the Single service page  layout you can add this sidebar to it.

Creating a blog post

To create a blog post with the same layout as Duriza you do the following (to see these setting you need to switch to the classic builder):

Go to Posts > Add New

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

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

Page Layout: Full Width

Post Title: Hide
