Divi Theme Install on WordPress With Lifetime API Key

This post is for a beginner who purchased a Divi premium theme for a new or existing website. This is a step-by-step guide on how to upload and activate the Divi theme on your WordPress dashboard.

Although, it is not tough to do this thing! But for a beginner, this might be; this guide is beneficial if you’re a Brand New Web Designer!

For the first time, I started learning WordPress website design to start my freelance business. I want to be my boss, want to work remotely, and not have a 9-5 hectic job. 

In this guide, I will show you the following steps to install and activate Divi Theme: 

Now, Let’s Dive Right in!

How to Set up WordPress on your local Computer or Laptop?

I started learning from Bitnami for WordPress to design a website on my local computer. The process followed by using Bitnami is somehow time-consuming.

Another option for learning and designing a website using your local host computer or laptop is the local flywheel. It would help if you showed progress on work to your client.

You can simply download it from their site and install it on your personal computer or laptop.

The process is straightforward, as you can see—when using online hosting. Here, you can see the local flywheel Dashboard, where you can add or delete the website.

And whenever you want to start work or do some tweaks, you just make the site online with just one click!

Local Flywheel Dashboard

Choosing Local by flywheel is an easy process to learn and boost your WordPress website designing skills.

You can simply download the free version for learning purposes and keep them updated for new features. 

Add a Domain Name with a Custom Environment using Flywheel!

While using online hosting, there is a need to buy hosting and domain and then install WordPress on it.

The process looks similar, but here you have options to choose from for PHP, Web Server, Database, and the last thing you want your site to be multisite.

Step-by-step Guide on Creating a Domain and Installing WordPress using Flywheel

When you’re done with creating a domain, you visit your local host site with one click. Access to the WordPress dashboard and all other tools where you can add themes, plugins, and media.

Delete or Remove Unnecessary Themes

Why should you delete unnecessary stuff from your site? Well! If you are starting your journey on WordPress website designing, you should also know about SEO tactics.

To trash all those stuff that are not in use, but only a load for the site. 

Delete or Remove Unnecessary Themes

Your site should be fast-loading, and you can do it by trashing the unused plugins and themes to qualify as a “Great Job!” score from the health score on your site.

When you install WordPress on your hosting server, some default themes are already installed in your WordPress website repository.

You keep one theme as a backup and another theme that you want to use for your Professional, Business, or blog website.

You should also delete unnecessary plugins, as they increase the site size, which slows down your site. Keep your plugins constantly updated; if you use pirated or outdated plugins, it will harm your site.

Note: Always keep the Backup of your site before starting any tweaks. There are a variety of plugins that help you do this. My favorite plugins are “All in WP migration tool” and “Up draft.”

If you find any error or missing function on your site, it may be because of a plugin; check the function to see whether it’s working or not working by simply deactivating the plugins one by one.

If you see there is a plugin that is not compatible with your theme, try another one, and it will work.

How to Upload and Install the Divi Theme on WordPress?

Now, it’s time to upload your favorite theme on the WordPress repository. (mine Divi Theme! The site you’re visiting right now is also built with this theme).

First, you need to download it through your Official Elegant theme Account.

You can Download This by logging into your account and clicking “Download Divi Theme.” Here, you will find a theme and other plugins that Divi offers with a one-year life plan.

Divi Theme Download

Now, you’ve downloaded it. Now, you simply click on the “Upload” button, as you can see in the below image. Click on Choose File, or simply drag the .zip folder here named “Divi Theme.”

When you are done with choosing the file option, you need to “Install” the theme in the WordPress repository.

Upload Divi Theme on WordPress

When you are done uploading you activate it by clicking on the “Activate” button, and you are done with it. 

Divi Theme Activate on WordPress

Activate it with the Lifetime API key.

Do you have a Divi theme with a lifetime plan? If your answer is No! Then you can contact me; I will help you to make it easy for you to buy it. I am a lifetime plan for this theme from the Elegant Theme.

By Just following the
Dashboard>Divi>Theme Option>Updates. From your official Divi account, you can copy and paste your username and API (you can generate it individually for a specific site or client site). 

Divi Theme License Activation Using Lifetime API Key - Success

You’re on Divi Dashboard, and here, you can do all custom settings, add your brand colors, adjust the parameters, and many more.

I’ve seen many themes and builders out there on the Internet and WordPress repositories. Some are free, and others are premium.

If you are a total beginner and have no buck in your pocket, I would recommend you choose a free theme and start your work today.

But if you want to build a Premium site with total security, then I would highly recommend you buy a Premium Theme or Page builder. Divi theme is a Great Option as it is cheap if you’re a developer!

Why I Love Divi Theme? 

Divi Theme is continuously improving its product. They are introducing new features, speed optimization, and many more… Elegant Theme Team support is terrific. The team will take your problem and help you in a few moments!

An outstanding Drop Builder, Global options, and Copy and paste option save a lot of time for the developer. You don’t need to learn coding skills. You just need to drag and drop the module and style it.

Another incredible feature is their pricing! With just $89, you can get this theme for one year and unlimited websites—a lifetime plan for $249. You will get support and other resources, like Bloom, Extra, Monarch, and Divi Page Builder.

It comes with more than 2300+ Templates that you can add to your page and then style.
