Installing Lifestyle 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.
The Monarch plugin from Elegant Themes is not included, however, we did add the export file.
The page links from buttons and logo are removed, so you need to relink those to the right pages.
Download and unzip the ‘Lifestyle_Child_Theme.zip’ file to your computer.
In your WordPress dashboard navigate to Appearance > Themes and click on Add New.
Locate the lifestyle.zip file in the Lifestyle_Child_Theme folder on your computer and then click Install Now.
When the install is complete click on ‘Activate’, you will then see the Lifestyle 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 Lifestyle Theme Options.json.
Go to Divi > Theme Customisation. Click on the import/export options (up/down arrow).
Click on Import and upload Lifestyle Customizer Settings.json.
Go to Divi > Divi Library. Click on the import/export options.
Click on Import and upload Lifestyle Builder Layouts.json.
Optional (if you have monarch plugin)
Go to Extra > Monarch settings. Click on the import/export options (up/down arrow).
Click on import and upload Lifestyle monarch-settings-export.json.
If you don’t have the Monarch plugin you can use the social media follow module instead.
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.
Add the contact us button to the menu
- After you created the contact page add it to the menu
- You need to add the class CTA_menu to this menu item (If you don’t see the class field go to the top right and click on Screen Option and check CSS Classes).
- This contact button needs to be the last menu item
Under CHANGE COLORS you can swap the color codes.
The classes are as follow:
From top to bottom:
et_pb_animation_top et-animated et-waypoint
From bottom to top:
et_pb_animation_bottom et-animated et-waypoint
From right to left:
et_pb_animation_right et-animated et-waypoint
