Divi Paving

Overview & Installation Video

1. Set Up WordPress & Domain Name

Howdy! Welcome to the documentation site for the Divi Paving child theme.

WordPress

This child theme is based on WordPress. You will need WordPress installed on a server to begin. If you don’t have this already, no problem. Just contact us and we can get that set up for you in a jiffy.

Domain Name

You need a domain name for your website. Again, if you don’t have one already registered, no big deal, just go ahead and contact us so we can get you set up.

When you have your domain and WordPress installation ready to go, log in to your site and continue to step 2.

2. Install & Activate Divi

Divi Theme by Elegant Themes

Divi is an awesome theme and page builder that runs on WordPress. You must have the Divi Theme by Elegant Themes installed to use this child theme or layout pack.

If you do not have a Divi license already, you will either need to:

  1. purchase the yearly or lifetime plan from the Elegant Themes website
  2. get the Divi API key for FREE with our hosting and care plans

3. Install Divi Paving

Preparation

Ensure you have the Divi Theme installed and activated prior to installing the child theme or layout pack. After you have the Divi Theme installed and activated, go ahead install your new child theme or layout pack.

After purchase, download the ‘.zip’ file from your ‘My Account’ page at https://www.peeayecreative.com (or the marketplace you purchased from) or click the download link in your purchase confirmation email and save the file to your computer. Be sure to unzip the folder that saysUNZIPME.

Child Theme Installation

Again in your WordPress Dashboard, go to ‘Appearance>Themes>Add New’ and click on ‘Upload Theme’. Locate the ‘.zip’ file on your computer and click ‘Install Now’.

When the install is complete click on ‘Activate’, you will then see Divi Paving as the active theme in your theme panel.

Layout Pack Installation

The layout pack comes with an installer plugin. In your WordPress Dashboard, go to ‘Plugins>Add New’ and click on ‘Upload Plugin’. Locate the ‘.zip’ file on your computer and click ‘Install Now’.

When the install is complete click on ‘Activate Plugin’.

Demo Import

On the left-hand side, you will see the new menu item called Divi Paving. Hover over this and click ‘Easy Demo Import’.

Next, you will see options on which items to import. For a new installation, keep everything selected and click ‘Import Demo Content’.

4. Customize Anything

Your site should now look like the demo at https://demos.peeayecreative.com/divi-paving, the only thing left to do is replace the text with your own and the placeholder images with your own images. You may now customize anything on the site including the logo, images, color schemes, fonts, layout, etc. Divi makes it super easy to do all of this, but some the styling you see is from the CSS file.

Photos

By law, we can’t include the photos in our product. However, if there were some you wanted to use, you can still do that by using the links below in the toggle. We tried to use either free or inexpensive stock photos for your convenience.

Style Guide & Custom Icons

Our child theme and layout pack includes 16 custom designed icons which you are free to use and customize. We also include a complimentary style guide for the child theme. All customers can download those resources here.

Changing Your Color Scheme

To edit the CSS, I recommend using Brackets. Copy the CSS from ‘Divi>Theme Options>Custom CSS’ and place it into a CSS document. From there, use ‘Edit>find and replace…’ to change your hex color values to match your brand.

The rest of the colors are in Divi itself and can be changed easily within the builder.

More Customization

If you want us to customize the site to match your branding, content, colors, and niche, please contact us for our current rates and we would be happy to help.
