Before you Begin

Before starting a plugin upgrade it is recommended to make a backup of your WordPress site. Sometimes weird stuff happens. We have tested this to the best of our ability and the procedure works in all our test cases.

In July 2019 we changed our name from Divi Framework to MRK WP

At the same time, we moved our Footer plugin for Divi over to a WordPress.org repository.
As part of this change, an installation upgrade was necessary, which is a manual process. This is because the slug name changed, to work with the WordPress.org requirements.

This document details how to migrate your WordPress website to the new Footer Plugin for Divi.

This document is for existing diviframework.com users.

  1. Login to your website’s WordPress admin: Visit the plugin listing on your website and you should see the Divi framework’s footer plugin installed and activated.
