1. Install Divi on WordPress

Divi is a commercial “premium” WordPress theme, which means you have to either pay an annual fee to use it, or work with a developer who has paid to use it for multiple sites. HiTech Essentials is a Divi developer. If you host your website with us, and take one of our Create a WordPress Site with Divi online workshops, then this installation method is for you.

  1. Download the Divi.zip file from our HiTech Web Services Dropbox folder. The password is provided via email after your first workshop.
  2. Log in to the WordPress admin for your site.
  3. Click on Appearance » Themes.

  6. Click Choose File, and navigate to the Divi.zip file that you downloaded earlier.
