Installing Metric 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.
Some 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 ‘Metric_Child_Theme_UNZIP_ME.zip’ file to your computer.
In your WordPress dashboard navigate to Appearance > Themes and click on Add New.
Locate the metric.zip file in the Metric_Child_Theme_UNZIP_ME folder on your computer and then click Install Now.
When the install is complete click on ‘Activate’, you will then see the Metric 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 Metric Theme Options.json.
Go to Divi > Theme Builder. Click on the import/export options.
Click on Import and upload Metric Theme Builder Templates.json.
Go to Divi > Theme Customisation. Click on the import/export options (up/down arrow).
Click on Import and upload Metric Customizer Settings.json.
Go to Divi > Divi Library. Click on the import/export options.
Click on Import and upload Metric Builder Layouts.json.
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.
Some images we used in the demo website are paid versions, so we have those replaced with free ones.
Creating a blog post
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:

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.
