Installing Mr. Fixer 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.
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 ‘Mrfixer_divi_child_theme_UNPACKME.zip’ file to your computer.
In your WordPress dashboard navigate to Appearance > Themes and click on Add New.
Locate the mrfixer-divi-child-theme.zip file in the Mrfixer_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 Mr. Fixer Child Theme as the active theme in your theme panel.
After activating Mr. Fixer, you will see at the top:
This theme recommends the following plugins: Sticky Menu (or Anything!) on Scroll, Widget CSS Classes and Widget Importer & Exporter.
