Installing Restery 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.

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 Restery_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 Restery Child Theme as the active theme in your theme panel.

Step 3

The “Make a reservation” form is created with contact form 7 and styled by contact form 7 styler for Divi plugin. So if you want to make use of this form then you need to install these plugins, otherwise you can skip this step.

After activating Restery, you will see at the top:

This theme recommends the following plugins: Contact Form 7 and Contact Form 7 Styler for Divi.

Begin installing these plugins by clicking on Begin installing plugins.

On the next screen, you need to check all the plugins and choose to install in the dropdown. Hit apply, and the progress will begin.

When the progress has finished click on “Return to Required Plugins Installer.”

Now you need to activate both plugins.

Step 4

Go to Divi > Theme Options. Click on the import/export options (up/down arrow).
Click on Import and upload ResteryTheme Options.json.

Go to Divi > Theme Builder. Click on the import/export options.
Click on Import and upload Restery Theme Builder Templates.json.

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

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

If you want to use the make a reservation form you can import the form with this step:

Go to Tools > Import. Click under WordPress “Install now
Click on “Run importer” and upload the file contact-form-7-form.xml

Step 5

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

Click on Use Divi Builder

Click on choose a premade layout

Go to the tab Your Saved Layouts

Here you will find all the pages from the demo. Load the Home page Restery and publish it.

To add the other pages as in the demo you do the same steps as above. 


Step 6

Go to Appearance > Menus and create a menu and add your page(s) to it.

Go to Settings > Reading. Check A static page
Set Homepage: to your home page
Leave the post page unset

Add the CTA button in the navigation

Go to Appearance > Menus and add the CSS class cta_menu to the menu item that you want to appear as a button.

Note: in case you don’t see the class field then go to the right top corner and expand screen options. Then check CSS classes.
