blog module divi

Blog module divi: With Divi, even blogs are a module and your “blog” can be placed anywhere on your website and in different formats. You can combine blog and sidebar modules to create classic blog designs. 1 column, 2 columns, or 3 columns can be created using the blog and sidebar module.

How to add a Blog module divi to your page

Before you can add a Blog module divi to your page, you must first access the Divi Builder. Once the Divi theme is installed on your website, you will notice a Use Divi Builder button above the post editor every time you create a new page. By clicking on this button, you will be able to activate Divi Builder, which will give you access to all the Divi Builder modules. Then click on the Use Visual Builder button to launch the builder in visual mode. You can also click the Use Visual Builder button while browsing your upstream website if you are logged in to your WordPress dashboard.

Once entered into Visual Builder, you can click the gray plus button to add a new module to your page. New modules can only be added inside rows. If you are starting a new page, remember to add a row to your page first. We have great tutorials on using Divi’s line and section elements.

Locate the blog module divi in the list of modules and click on it to add it to your page. The list of modules is searchable, which means you can also type the word “blog” and then click enter to automatically find and add the blog module divi! Once the module is added, you will be greeted with the list of module options. These options are divided into three main groups: Content, Design, and Advanced.

Use case of the blog module divi with a grid layout in a specialized section with a right sidebar

For this example, I’ll add a blog module to a blog page. This blog page has a full header with a search module below. Under the search module, I’ll add a specialized section with the blog module divi on the left side and a sidebar section on the right. The sidebar on the right contains a recent post widget, an email opt-in module, and a person module.

Note that the blog module divi is in a grid layout on the left side of the special section.

Let’s get started.

Use the visual builder to add a specialized section with the following layout:

You will be prompted to add a column or a two-column row for the left side. Choose row 1 column.

Then add the blog module divi to the row.

Update the blog settings as follows:

Content options

Display pagination: NO

The advanced custom CSS button for the Read More button creates a custom look that matches the design well.

In the right sidebar section of the specialist section layout, you will need to add a sidebar module that inserts the recent posts widget. Below you will need to add an Email Optin module. And then under Email Optin, you need to add the Person module with author information.

That’s all!
