Installing Maveros Child Theme

Requirements

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.

Step 1

Download and unzip the ‘Maveros_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 maveros-child-theme.zip file in the Maveros_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 Maveros 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 Maveros Theme Options.json.

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

Go to Divi > Divi Library. Click on the import/export options.
Click on Import and upload Maveros Builder Layouts.json.

Step 4

Go to Pages > Add New. Give your page a name for example Home.

In the Divi Builder Click on Load Layout then click on Your Saved Layouts.

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.

To add the other pages just follow step 4 and choose the page layout you want to use.

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 layout you can add this sidebar to it.

Edit the top header (logo, Location, opening hours, button and phonenumber)

The top header section with the location, opening hours, button and phone number is not visible in the visual builder. I explain here how you can edit that section.

I created 2 headers one for desktop and one for mobile and tablet. I’ll cover the desktop first.

Logo desktop
To change your logo go to Divi > Theme options
The recommended size is 346x112 pixels

Replace the content (Location, opening hours, button and phone number) Desktop
Go to Divi > Divi Library and open Section Above Menu Global
In the modules, you can change the information.

Menu colors Desktop
Most of the colors can be done through Divi > Customizer

The background color and the dropdown line you can change in Appearance > editor under Change colors.

Logo and content for tablet and mobile
You can do this in 2 ways. Through the Divi Library and open the Header Mobile Global.
Or open any page and you will see the same section at the top.

Menu tablet and mobile
You can do this in 2 ways. Through the Divi Library and open the Menu Global.
Or open any page and you will see the same section at the top.

Services section (home and services page)

Each service consists of two blurb modules. But only one is visible until you hover over it.
On the front-end, you can see that there is also a background parallax image. This effect is created with 3 images. One on the section (this one has an overlay) and one on each row.

Creating a blog post

To create a blog post with the same layout as Maveros 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

Post settings

Important

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.

Excerpt box

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 Header Mobile Global.
Do the same with Menu Global and Footer Global.
Arrange them in the right order.
Now you can create the other sections/rows that you want.

Custom page

404 and category page

To edit the content of the 404 and category page, you go to Divi > Divi Library.

Then you open the 404 or category page. You can make your edits here.

Search result page

Maveros has a custom designed Search result page.

In order to show a decent excerpt in the results, you have to add them to the pages.

Open a page and scroll down to the excerpt box. Place the text in this box that you want to show up on the search result page.
