Installing Localbiz 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).
The Divi theme is not included in this package. To download Divi, you must have an Elegant Themes Membership.
The page links from buttons and logo are removed, so you need to relink those to the right pages.
Download and unzip the ‘Localbizpro_child_theme_UNPACKME.zip’ file to your computer.
In your WordPress dashboard navigate to Appearance > Themes and click on Add New.
Locate the localbizpro.zip file in the Localbizpro_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 Localbizpro 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 Localbiz Pro Theme Options.json.
Go to Divi > Theme Customizer. Click on the import/export options (up/down arrow).
Click on Import and upload Localbiz Pro Customizer Settings.json.
Go to Divi > Divi Library. Click on the import/export options.
