How to install CoCo Assistant plugin
Who is this article for?
Anyone who owns CoCo and wants to install the assistant plugin.
• Skill level: Easy
• Time to complete: 10 minutes
Before you begin
- Please make sure you have the latest Divi theme installed. You do not need a child theme for the CoCo Pack to work.
NOTE: If you want to make significant code modifications then please install a Divi child theme as it will become easier to manage.
- CoCo Assistant automatically adds all CSS & functions code.
- Important: The CoCoAssistant is a licensed plugin and is downloaded from API downloads sub-menu option under your account. See screenshot below:

Install the plugin: Go to "Plugins" and choose "Add new". Click "Upload Plugin" button. Browse "coco-assistant-vX-X-X-plugin.zip" file.
Activate the plugin by clicking "Activate" button. After that, you will have to enter your API license details: API key and API email address.
You can find API key and API email in your Divi Den account. Log in and find the API keys page under My Account menu item.
Import Master Library .json: Go to Divi->Divi Library and upload "master-divi-library-import-coco-pack.json" file to Divi library. If installing .json files give you errors, it may be due to upload limit size on your server. First look for the SPLIT (separated) files. Unzip the "UNZIP-ME-coco-assistant" and upload smaller library files under 10mb each, which you will find when you unpack "separated" archives. Often this helps to get all library items uploaded in smaller bits. If that does not work then see this How to change the WordPress PHP upload limits
Load layouts & modules: Go to the page where you want CoCo Pack layouts loaded and make sure to have Divi Builder enabled.
Click "Load Layout" option, then select "Your Saved Layouts">
Select CoCo and choose a layout you want loaded.
Change text, colours & images: Customising is possible from Module Settings Tabs (Content, Design and Advanced).
To Make custom CSS changes to colours: Open "master-css-changer-coco-pack.css" in the text editor. The file is included in the download zip file. Read the labels/comments in the file and find the module you want to change. Replace the relevant colour for the matching CSS rule - then copy/paste the complete CSS rule into the "Custom CSS" box on the page edit screen OR in the theme settings "custom CSS" box.
That's it! All done.
