How to Upload The Template
Go to Divi Theme Builder
To upload the template, navigate to the Divi Theme Builder in the backend of your WordPress website.
Upload Global Default Website Template
Then, in the top right corner, you’ll see an icon with two arrows. Click on the icon.
Navigate to the import tab, upload the JSON file which you were able to download in this post and click on ‘Import Divi Theme Builder Templates’.
Save Divi Theme Builder Changes
Once you’ve uploaded the file, you’ll notice a new global header and footer in your default website template. Save the Divi Theme Builder changes as soon as you want the template to be activated.
How to Modify The Template
Open Header Template
To modify the global header template’s elements, start by opening the template.
Add Button and Text Link URLs
This header has buttons and text links throughout. Open the settings of each to update the link URL to the destination of your choice.
Update Social Media Follow Links
You will also need to update the social media follow module with your own networks and account URLs.
Enable CSS Class Once Header Design is Completed
Last but not least, we’ll enable a CSS class in the Code Module which you can find in the first section. Open the Code Module and remove the “/* */” at the beginning and end of the class. Enabling this class (in combination with some JQuery code that’s already enabled) will make sure the section containing the menu items doesn’t load right away when someone visits one of your pages. Once you enable this class, the second section on your page will disappear from the Visual Builder, but you can still access it in the Wireframe Mode or turn off the CSS class if you want to make additional changes.
Open Footer Template
Continue by opening the global footer inside the default website template.
Update Email Optin with Email Account/List
Then, update the Contact Form with the necessary email address and other options.
Update Footer Content
You will also need to go through and update the content of the footer, including adding your own text and link URLs where needed and social media networks. Don’t forget about the copyright text at the bottom of the footer as well.
