You must have the Divi Theme by Elegant Themes installed to use this Child Theme.

An Elegant Themes Membership is required to download the Divi Theme. The Divi Theme is NOT included with this child theme.

If you wish to use the Monarch styling you will need to install the Monarch plugin from Elegant Themes. Monarch is not included with this child theme.

Ensure you have the Divi Theme installed prior to installing this Child Theme.

To avoid any issues during installation it is highly recommended that you use this child theme on a fresh installation of WordPress. This Child Theme will delete the default ‘Hello World’ post created when you install WordPress. If you have existing content on your site (which is not advised) you should make a copy of your first post as this will be deleted if the Hello World post does not exist.

It is also a good idea for SEO purposes to navigate to Settings > Permalinks and set the Common Settings to Post name.

You should also navigate to Divi > Theme Options >General and disable minification for JS and CSS.

Then go to Divi > Theme Options >Builder and disable static CSS generation.
