Marvel DocumentationAll the information you need!
This version of Marvel is fully compatible with versions 3.0.101+. Some features or elements may not be compatible with previous versions. Please ensure that you’ve downloaded the latest version of Divi.
Step 1: Install Divi Theme
Once you’ve downloaded the Divi theme package, login to your WordPress website and go to Appearance > Themes.
Find and upload the Divi parent theme and activate it. Next click on the Add New Theme.
Step 2: Install and activate Marvel
Click on Upload Theme.
Click on Choose file.
In the downloaded package find and select Marvel.zip file, then click on the Install Now button.
Completing the upload, you will need to activate the theme by clicking on the Activate button.
Step 3: Activate your product
To activate your product and get updates please go to Settings > Marvel Activation and enter your API Key and API Email.
To see your API Keys please login to your account.
Step 4: Installing plugins
Marvel theme requires 2 plugins:
Caldera Forms and One Click Demo Import.
We have made installation process very simple. After Marvel child theme is activated system will ask you to install all missed plugins. Click Begin installing plugins.
On the next screen select all plugins, choose Install from dropdown menu and click Apply.
You should see this screen.
Step 5: Permalinks setup
To make the Contact Form Popups working, Permalinks Settings have to be setup to “Post name”.
Go to Settings > Permalinks, select “Post name” and click Save Changes.
Step 6: Disable Visual Text Editor
Marvel uses custom icons which are applied via span classes. This is unfortunately not supported by WordPress and when we have Visual Text Editor enabled this causes issues, icons disappear.
To disable Visual Text Editor please go to Users and click your user account.
Find Visual Editor option located at the very top and mark box Disable the visual editor when writing.
This will prevent icons disappearing.
*You can skip this step but keep in mind to do not switch to Visual Editor mode when editing modules where custom icons used.
Step 1: 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.
Step 2: The theme has 2 pre-built forms. They need to be imported from download package. Go to the Caldera Forms tab located in your WordPress Dashboard and click Import button. Select “contact-form-export.json” file located in Import Files folder and click Import button. Follow the same steps for Polygon Popup form.
Step 3: Editing Form
Caldera Forms import functionality does not support HTML anymore, so we need to add links to our popup social media icons manually. To do that open Caldera Forms, hover on Popup Form and click Edit.
In the form settings window click on Edit icon located in social media section. Here you can edit content and add social media links. On this screen you can also edit all texts, address, phone number and email.

Ghost Header is another custom option. It allows to customize 2nd header and display it on specific pages.
Divi/Theme Customizer/Ghost Header
To edit Email Option module go to Divi/Divi Library and open Email Sign Up From layout.
