Importing Bloom Settings
Meetly comes with one predesigned Bloom Optin form (the inline form in the „Stay in touch” section on the homepage of the demo).
To import the Bloom form you must have Bloom installed which is not included with this child theme but can be downloaded form your Elegant Themes account.
With Bloom installed, in the WordPress admin panel navigate to Bloom>Import & Export, select Choose File under Import Bloom Settings and select the file called meetly-bloom-settings.json from your computer, then click on import.
When done, be sure to click on the tick icon to activate the forms and they will move up into the Active Optins section.
Next click on the brackets icon to generate shortcode for the Slim Email Signup and check the ID number of the optin form.
If you have not created any forms previously, it will be imported with the ID of 0 or 1, if you have created forms already Bloom will assign a new ID. If the ID is different make a note of it.
To use the Bloom inline optin form open the module on the home page and check the ID number in the shortcode matches with your version, if not replace with the ID of your form. Save and refresh the page and your form should appear.
Your site should now look like Meetly demo page. You can navigate to Divi Theme Customizer and click Meetly Settings tab to change theme colors and fonts.
