Installing Valliant 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 Valliant_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 Valliant Child Theme as the active theme in your theme panel.

Step 4

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

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

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

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

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 Valliant 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 phone number in the navigation

Go to Appearance > Menus and add a custom link.

If you want to create a phone link you can add this in the URL field:


Replace number with your phone number.

If not than place this # in the url field

For the link text add this:

<span class="phonetext">Request a Service</span></br><span class="phonenumber">(815) 555-5555</span>

Replace the phone number (815 555-5555) with yours.

Click on add to menu button.

Now you need to add the CSS class cta_menu to the menu item.

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.

Sidebar menu (Services)

Follow the steps below to create the services menu for your services pages

Go to Appearance > Menus and create a new menu. Under Menu Settings don’t check anything. In this menu you need to add the pages you want to show up in the sidebar.

Go to Appearance > Widgets add a new sidebar (You need to refresh the page in order to see the new sidebar)

Add the Navigation widget to this sidebar and assign the services menu to it

When you create a page with the Service Page Valliant layout you can add this sidebar to it.

Creating a blog post

To create a blog post with the same layout as Valliant you do the following:

Go to Posts > Add New
Go to Load From Library > Add From Library and choose Single Post Valliant.

In the right upper right corner, you find the Divi Post Settings. Make the following adjustments:

Page Layout: Full Width
Post Title: Hide
