Installing Roofing Child Theme

Requirements

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 ‘Roofing_Divi_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 roofing-div-child-theme.zip file in the Roofing_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 Roofing Child Theme as the active theme in your theme panel.

Step 3

After activating Roofing, you will see at the top:

This theme recommends the following plugins: Sticky Menu (or Anything!) on Scroll.

Begin installing this plugin by clicking on Begin installing plugins.

On the next screen, you need to check the plugin 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 the plugin.

Step 4

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

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

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

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

Step 5

Go to Settings > Sticky Menu (or Anything!)

In the sticky element field, add the following .contact_fixed_home

Space between top of page and sticky element: (optional): 75px

Go to the advanced settings tab and in the field Z-index fill in 999

In the Push-up element (optional): #custom_footer

Step 6

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 Roofing and publish it.

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

 

Step 7

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 an arrow icon before menu item

In the drowdown menu and on some titles you will see a little arrow before the text.

Place the following fontawesome code before a menu item or title:

For the drowdown menu it looks like this:
