Importing demo content

Now you will need to install the library and all theme settings which allows you to have your site just like the demo version.

Go to Appearance > Import Data Demo, and click on the Import Demo Data button.

Note: This may take even several minutes, depends of internet connection speed. Please be patient.

 

Theme Customizer

Your site should now look exactly like Ally demo page. You can navigate to Divi Theme Customizer to change the colors of gradient overlays and CTA menu item.

 

 

Ally Widget-Ready Areas

Ally has two additional Widget-Ready areas.

One before default Divi footer called „Ally Footer” and one in the Pop-up area called „Ally – Popup Widget”.

Ally includes Divi Widget Builder Plugin (Divi PB Widget), which lets you choose any Divi Layout from the Divi Library and display it as a Widget in any Widget-Ready area.

Ally Footer

You can choose any layout to display before default Divi footer, by going to:
Appearance > Widgets

Ally demo uses layout called „Ally Widget – Footer Layout”. To edit this layout navigate to:
Divi > Divi Library

Ally Pop Up Widget

Ally has a Call To Action menu item, which activates Popup area on click. You can choose any widget to display in there, by navigating to:
Appearance > Widgets

If you’d like to display this Popup from another link on the site you would need to make a link with target url set to #open-popup

<a href=”#popup-widget”>Click Me!</a>

If you don’t want to use Popup, but would like to keep CTA menu item – navigate to Appearance > Menus and simply remove the target url from the menu item.

Ally CTA Menu Button

Ally has a Call To Action menu item. To set new CTA menu item navigate to Appearance > Menus, click on the Screen Options button at the top right of the page and make sure the CSS Classes option is selected and add the cta-menu-link class to chosen menu item.
