Installing Lockguard 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 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.
Download and unzip the ‘Lockguard_Divi_Child_Theme_UNPACKME.zip’ file to your computer.
In your WordPress dashboard navigate to Appearance > Themes and click on Add New.
Locate the lockguard-div-child-theme.zip file in the Lockguard_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 Lockguard Child Theme as the active theme in your theme panel.
After activating Lockguard, you will see at the top:
This theme recommends the following plugins: Sticky Menu (or Anything!) on Scroll.

Now you need to activate the plugin.
