Installing Forter Child Theme

Requirements

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 ‘Forter_Divi_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 forter-div-child-theme.zip file in the Forter_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 Forter 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 Forter Theme Options.json.

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

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

Go to Divi > Divi Library. Click on the import/export options.
Click on Import and upload Forter 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 Forter 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

Disable the fixed header and menu

If you want to disable the fixed header and menu, then go to:

Appearance > Theme Editor

Around line 95 you will see this CSS code:

Remove or comment this code out.

How to trigger the slide-in

To trigger the slide-in with a button do the following:

In the Button Link URL field add this #open

Go to the advanced tab and in CSS ID & Classes > CSS Class field fill in sliding_button_cta

Customize the slide-in

To customize the slide-in go to:

Divi > Theme Builder

Open the Global Footer

And change to wireframe mode

Now you can see and change the slide-in.

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 Service Page Valliant layout you can add this sidebar to it.

Creating a blog post
