Theme Installation

In your Wordpress admin panel navigate to Appearance>Themes>Add New and click on ‘Upload Theme’. Locate the ‘’ file on your computer and then click ‘Install Now’.

When the install is complete click on Activate, you will then see the Valentina Child Theme as the active theme in your theme panel.

Above the theme images you will see a notification telling you which plugins Bliss requires. Click on ‘Begin Installing Plugin’ and the Install on the next page.

The plugin will activate automatically. When you see the following page, click Appearance in the WordPress menu to refresh the page.

Once the page refreshes, you will see a new option under the Appearance menu call 'Import Demo Data'. 

Click this option and you will then see the following page.

Importing the demo data will delete the first post. On a new WordPress install this is the 'Hello Word' sample post. If you are installing this child theme on an existing site, which is not recommended, be sure to backup a copy of your first post (the one with the lowest post ID number).

When you are happy to proceed, click the blue Import Demo Data button.

The demo data will then begin to import, this can take a few minutes so please be patient and only click the button once.

When the import is finished you will see the following screen.

Your site should now look similar to the demo but with placeholder images. 

You may need to rearrange your widgets and delete the Meta widget in Appearance > Widgets to get your site looking exactly like the demo.

You will also need to select the social icons you want to show in the header and footer in Divi > Theme Options.

Contained in the download package is a monarch-settings.json file which you can import into Monarch to achieve the same social sharing layout you see on single posts in the the child theme. The colours for the icons are set within Monarch.
