How to install Divi layout

A Divi Layout is NOT a child theme nor a module. A Divi Layout is usually a json file that allows you to customize the layout of a page. The Divi Builder makes it easy to add a layout to your site. Follow these simple steps.

  1. If this is a layout that you purchased, it may be in a zip file. If so, you need to unzip the contents of the file before continuing.
  2. Import the .json file into Divi as follows. Hover over Divi in your WordPress backend menu, then click Divi Library. At the very top of the page (above the Layouts title), click the Import & Export button. The Portability popup will appear. Click the Import tab, select the .json file of the layout, and click the Import Divi Builder Layouts button.
  3. Almost there! The layout is now in your library. To use the layout on a page in the Divi Builder, click the Load Layout option at the top level of any page.

The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet

A common issue that can occur when installing a new WordPress theme is a “Broken theme and/or stylesheets missing” or “The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet” error message being displayed when trying to upload or activate the theme.

Thankfully, this error message does not mean that the theme you have purchased is broken! It simply means it hasn’t been uploaded it correctly.

Some purchases include a ZIP folder within a ZIP file. What you want to do is upload the inner (installable) ZIP file. You can verify the installable ZIP file because it will have a file inside named style.css.

How to Upload the Installable WordPress Theme ZIP File

  1. Log in to your WordPress admin area.
  2. Browse to Appearance > Themes.
  3. Click on ‘Add New’.
  4. Click ‘Upload’.
  5. Browse and select the theme ZIP file to ‘Upload’.
