Divi Theme and Divi Builder Reference List – End May/Mid October 2015Posted on Oct 14, 2015 in Blog, Web Design Tools, Wordpress, Wordpress other | 0 comments
This is a special reference list I made for all you Divi Theme users. This list has the most popular (most shared on social media) posts about the Divi Theme and Divi Builder (and including the Divi Nation podcastst) written on the Elegant Themes blog in the period of End May till Mid October (the date of this post). I also mentioned the date of each post, so you have the correct date reference. This is marked in orange highlight. In yellow highlight you see the amount of shares (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Pinterest combined) at the time I wrote this post.
The reason I wrote this post is because it is very helpful for myself and thus I think also for you. It is not a timeline really (as they are out of sequence and therefore I added the date so you can see where it fits on the development stage timeline) but it gives an idea of what is the most popular on the Elegant Themes blog and thus what has the most value for you to read through if you want to learn more about the Divi Theme and the Divi Builder.
Hope it is of help!

Exploring Divi 2.4: A FREE Library Pack Built With Divi’s New Advanced Design Settings – If you haven’t explored Divi 2.4 yet, you are probably asking yourself: “Wait, what is the Divi Library?” Put simply, it’s a new place for you to save individual Modules, Rows, Sections or even entire layouts that you have built using the Divi Builder. Once an item has been saved to the library, it can be quickly accessed from within the builder. These library items are like tools in your new web design toolkit, and can be used when creating new pages on your website or when creating new websites for your clients.

A Sneak Peek At Divi 2.5, And An Update To The Divi Production Timeline – You might be asking yourself: Divi 2.5? Wait, I thought The Divi Builder Plugin was next on the production timeline? You’re right, we originally planned to release The Divi Builder Plugin before Divi 2.5. After some thought, we flip-flopped and decided it would better serve everyone if we rolled our framework updates into Divi 2.5 first, while at the same time continuing to focus on the various Divi bug fixes and improvements requested by the community. We want to make Divi absolutely perfect before expanding it into plugin form.

Exploring Divi 2.4: Why Rows Are Now the Most Versatile Part Of Divi, And How You Can Use Them Effectively – If you are a Divi user, you know that the layouts built with the Divi Builder are broken up into three elements: Sections, Rows and Modules. Sections are your largest organizational element, used to separate big blocks of content on the page. Inside of each section are placed Rows of columns, and inside each column can be any number of Modules. These are the building blocks of your page. Modules are the content, but Rows control how that content is arranged. Using different combinations of column layouts, you can create a vast array of layouts.

Exploring Divi 2.4: How To Use Semi-Transparent Colors Creatively Throughout Your Website – In Divi 2.4 we introduced new color pickers with alpha controls. These let you select and input RGBa color values. What is RGBa? RGBa is a color value that is defined by its RGB value plus an alpha value, which is what that little ‘a’ stands for. You can think of the alpha value as an opacity value. For example… Black can by represented in a couple different ways: #000000; or rgb(0,0,0). We can use a third method that looks like this: rgba(0,0,0,1); where the 1 represents its opacity on a scale of 0 – 1. Using this scale we can create a 50% transparent black with rgba(0,0,0,0.5).

Exploring Divi 2.4: Using The Divi Code Module To Integrate Third Party Plugins Into The Builder – In Divi 2.4, it is easier than ever to integrate third party plugins directly into the Divi Builder. This is thanks to the new Code Module and Fullwidth Code Module. When in the past, text modules could be used to add shortcodes to the page, the module came with extra bells and whistles that were superfluous for code integration. More importantly, no method for adding shortcodes to Fullwidth Sections existed. Both of these issues have been solved in 2.4, and it’s amazing what a simple module can allow you to do.

Exploring Divi 2.4: Using The All New Full Screen Header Module – Divi has always had a Fullwidth Header module. In Divi 2.4, however, this module has been greatly expanded with dozens of new options that make it one of the most versatile modules in Divi’s collection. There are over 20 different possible layouts that can now be created with this single module, and a myriad of new styling options that can be applied to each element (thanks to Divi’s new Advanced Design Settings). Where before you were limited to only two pieces of information in your header (Title and Subhead), the header has now been expanded to include various images, buttons and backgrounds (each of which can be arranged in different ways). To top things off, a new “Full Screen Mode” has been added to the header, which will force the header to extend the full height of the browser.

Exploring Divi 2.4: How The Custom CSS Tab and The Divi Library Can Transform Your Workflow – Sections, Rows, & Modules all have their very own Custom CSS tabs in the Divi Builder. This lets you add custom css to your page and even more specifically, directly to individual elements on the page. There is nothing wrong with doing this via a child theme or within the Elegant Themes ePanel, but you might find yourself using those methods far less with these new features at your fingertips.

Exploring Divi 2.4: Using The Module Customizer to Control 100’s of New Module Styles – Another customizer!? Yes, we have added a new customizer, separate from the Theme Customizer, that lets you customize hundreds of default module styles. For example, set the default top and bottom padding for the Slide Module—then anytime you add a new slider, it will inherit the Module Customizer settings. This customizer is going to save you a ton of time and even further decrease the need for child theme customizations.
