Installing Photelo 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 and Bloom plugin are not included in this package. To download Divi and Bloom, 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.

Step 1

Download and unzip the ‘’ file to your computer.

Step 2

In your WordPress dashboard navigate to Appearance > Themes and click on Add New.

Locate the file in the Photelo_Child_Theme folder on your computer and then click Install Now.

When the install is complete click on ‘Activate’, you will then see the Photelo 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 Photelo Theme Options.json.

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

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

Go to Appearance > Widgets. If there are widgets in the Sidebar, then remove them all. Create a new Sidebar. You can give it any name that you want.

Optional (if you have Bloom)
Go to Bloom > Import & Export
Import the file Photelo bloom settings export.json


Step 4

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.


Enable Bloom

After importing the import file you need to make the opt-in form active and fill in your email provider info.

Add the Bloom widget into your sidebar and assign the opt-in form.

Creating a blog post

To create a blog post with the same layout as Photelo 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

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 Footer Global.
Now you can create the other sections/rows that you want.

Custom page

404 and category page
