Installing Easyfix 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.
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 ‘Easyfix_Child_Theme.zip’ file to your computer.
In your WordPress dashboard navigate to Appearance > Themes and click on Add New.
Locate the easyfix.zip file in the Easyfix_Child_Theme folder on your computer and then click Install Now.
When the install is complete click on ‘Activate’, you will then see the Easyfix Child Theme as the active theme in your theme panel.
For this child theme we need to install one free plugin.
In your Dashboard go to Plugins > Add New then search for Sticky Menu (or Anything!) on Scroll by Mark Senff
After installing, activate the plugin.
Go to Divi > Theme Options. Click on the import/export options (up/down arrow).
Click on Import and upload Easyfix Theme Options.json.
Go to Divi > Theme Customisation. Click on the import/export options (up/down arrow).
Click on Import and upload Easyfix Customizer Settings.json.
Go to Divi > Divi Library. Click on the import/export options.
Click on Import and upload Easyfix Builder Layouts.json.
Go to Settings > Sticky Menu (or Anything!)
In the sticky element field, add the following #stickybar
Go to the advanced settings tab and in the field Z-index fill in 99999
Click on save settings.
Go to Pages > Add New. Give your page a name for example Home.
In the Divi Builder Click on Load from Library then click on Add From Library.
Here you will find all the pages from the demo. Load the Home page and publish it.
Don’t forget to add a menu and set the Home page as static.
Some images we used in the demo website are paid versions, so we have those replaced with free ones.
Changing logo and header information
I 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, I made the header (logo contact info and phone number), menu and footer as a global section. You can notice this by the yellow/green color of these sections.
As you can see in the image below I made two headers, one is only visible to the desktop and the other one is only visible for mobile and tablet.
So don’t forget that you have to change the logo and edit the info in both of these sections.
Creating a blog post
To create a blog post with the same layout as Easyfix 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
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.
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 Desktop.
Do the same with Top header tablet and mobile, menu cta bottom (optional) and footer.
Arrange them in the right order.
Now you can create the other sections/rows that you want.
404 and blog category page
To edit the content of the 404 and category blog page, you go to Divi > Divi Library.
Then you open the 404 page. You can make your edits here.
