About Divi theme

Divi Theme

The Divi theme is a very powerful, highly customizable theme for WordPress. To activate the theme on your WordPress site, go to the Dashboard of your site. From there, go to Appearance > Themes and select Divi.

The Divi Builder

The Divi theme comes with a page builder that can be used for posts, pages, and projects. This builder makes it very easy to make pages exactly the way you want them to look. To start using the Divi Builder, go to the page or post you’d like to edit or create and select Use The Divi Builder. The Divi Builder will then replace the area where you’d normally input text.

Sections, Rows, and Columns

The Divi Builder organizes content into sections. Inside each section of your post, you can have any number of rows, and you can then separate those rows into many different combinations of columns of varying sizes. You can add sections by selecting Standard Section or Fullwidth Section. To add rows, select Add Row, and to add columns, select Insert Column(s) and then choose a division of columns from the pop-up window.

 

Modules

In Divi, modules are what actually hold the content that you want displayed on your post. Inside of each column that you made, there will be an option to Insert Module(s).

Clicking on that option will create a pop-up windows in which you can select which module you would like. There are many different types of modules you can add: images, videos, text, and anything else you could need for creating your own site.
