Before you begin

  1. Please make sure you have the latest the Divi Theme installed. You do not need a child-theme for the Unicorn 2.0 Assistant Plugin to function. 
    NOTE: If you want to make significant code modifications then please install a divi child theme as it will become easier to manage. 
  2. Do not use the Unicorn 2.0 and "Unicorn1 Bundle" together. Everything was improved in Unicorn 2.0 and it is not compatible with "Unicorn1 Bundle". 
    - Simply use Unicorn 2.0 on a new website and follow the steps below as if it is a brand new installation.  
    - IMPORTANT: If you have to migrate from Unicorn 1  to Unicorn 2, please see:   How to migrate from Unicorn (legacy version) to Unicorn 2.0
