Before you can install your Divi Child Theme you must have WordPress, Divi Theme, and the Divi Builder installed on your website. If you need assistance with this please return to the previous lesson or visit the Divi Documentation to access instructions.

If you purchased your design directly from our shop then you were sent a zip file of your download to your email address on file. You can also find your zip file in your account dashboard.

  1. Sign into your account
  2. From the My Account page, click downloads (left panel)
  3. Click to download your file

[/et_pb_toggle][et_pb_toggle title=”Uncompress the Zip File” open_toggle_text_color=”#2d2d2d” open_toggle_background_color=”#ffffff” closed_toggle_text_color=”#4e4e4e” closed_toggle_background_color=”#ffffff” icon_color=”#b7a681″ _builder_version=”3.14″ title_level=”h2″ border_width_all=”0px” border_color_all=”#d8d8d8″ border_width_bottom=”1px” custom_margin=”|||” custom_padding=”0px|||”]

After downloading, please uncompress or ‘unzip’ your file and store somewhere safe and accessible. Upon compression, you will notice multiple files.

  • Divi Child Theme Zip File ‘divi-child-yourdesignname.zip” (Don’t uncompress this file)
  • READ ME file with important links, information, and notices
  • Resource Zip File (this contains any Divi files or separate resources related to your design)

[/et_pb_toggle][et_pb_toggle title=”Install Child Theme” open_toggle_text_color=”#2d2d2d” open_toggle_background_color=”#ffffff” closed_toggle_text_color=”#4e4e4e” closed_toggle_background_color=”#ffffff” icon_color=”#b7a681″ _builder_version=”3.14″ title_level=”h2″ border_width_all=”0px” border_color_all=”#878787″ border_width_bottom=”1px” border_color_bottom=”#d8d8d8″ custom_padding=”0px|||”]

  1. Login to your WordPress Dashboard
  2. Click “Themes” from the left dashboard panel
  3. Click “Add New” 
  4. A popup will open with your computer’s files. Navigate to where you have saved your zip files. Select the zip file that begins with “Divi-Child” and ends with “.zip” it should look similar to “Divi-Child-DesignName.zip” PLEASE NOTE: Do not unzip this file. The theme uploader needs a zip file intact to upload properly.
  5. WordPress will automatically install your design and ask you to activate. Select “Active Theme

A few important notes:

  • Your active theme will be the child theme NOT the Divi theme. You need both of these themes installed to work properly. Using a child theme will allow you to make customizations to your site without altering the original Divi Files. Your Theme panel should have both themes installed and enabled.
  • You need to keep the Divi theme updated at all times to properly get the correct updates from the manufacturer.
