The do-it-yourself with Divi isn’t complicated when you know how. Here are the steps for implementing the Divi Theme. First, you should be a member of Elegant Themes. I’ve been a member since 2012. Their service and documentation is outstanding. If you’re not yet a member you may use my affiliate link in the footer to sign up.
- From your Elegant Themes member area download the Divi Theme File
- Download the .zip file to your desktop.
- Do not open the file.
- Go to your website which has the WordPress core software installed.
You cannot upload Divi to WordPress.com you must have your own domain and an account with a web host. If you haven’t found a Web Hosting Company, read about Website Hosting and what you should know. I have two recommendations:
- Go with a hosting company that does not limit the memory space your website needs
- Never buy cheap hosting services. You get what you pay for.
The Divi Theme requires PHP 7.0 +. This is higher than PHP 5.6. Some hosting companies limit the memory space because it is cheaper for them. The DIY person knows better. You are loading a Premium WordPress Theme and this requires more memory. A web host that limits access and charges for more memory is not what you want in a web hosting company.
