Here is a FREE bare-bones child theme for Divi.
This child theme will inherit all the functionality and styling of Divi. It’s ready for you to modify without the worry of losing your modifications after the parent theme gets updated.
I use Divi on several projects myself and after reading several forum posts at Elegant Themes, I thought it might save other Divi users some time to have this ready made child theme.
I read great posts about how to make modifications to Divi but they always suggest that you should make a Divi Child Theme first in order to avoid problems later. So the reader is now faced with a new challenge on top of the one they had to begin with.
So now developers can save time by using this bare-bones Divi Child theme and applying the suggested modifications without looking up tutorials about how to make a WordPress Child Theme.
Because I use Divi myself, I will post handy modifications you can make to the this child theme in future posts. Please let me know in the comments below if you found Divi Child Theme useful. I hope you like it.
