First steps with the Divi Builder
Exactly what is the Visual Builder? There are two versions of the Divi Builder: Backend Builder" and the frontend "Visual Builder. "Each interface allows you to create exactly the same kinds of Web sites with the same contents items and theme preferences. Backend Builder is located in the WordPress Dashboard and can be used together with all other default WordPress configurations.
Located in the WordPress user interface, it substitutes the default WordPress Mailditor. These tutorials focus only on the Visual Builder. On the other side the completely new Visual Builder allows you to create your pages on the frontend of your website! It is an incredible adventure and allows a much quicker designing.
Your changes appear immediately when you are adding contents or customizing theme preferences within Visual Builder. Now you can create your site, create new contents and see everything happening right in front of you. When you are signed in to your WordPress dashboard, you can browse to any page on the front end of your Web site and click the Visual Builder enabled icon in the WordPress administration toolbar to start the Visual Builder.
When you edit your page on the backend, you can go to the Visual Builder by pressing the Visual Builder enabled pushbutton located at the top of the Backend Divi Builder user surface (note that you must first activate the Divi Builder before the Visual Builder pushbutton appears). Divi's strength comes from Visual Builder, a drag-and-drop page generator that lets you create almost any kind of website by mixing and matching items.
There are three major components used by the client: Segments, lines and moduls. Segments are the biggest bricks, and they accommodate groups of series. Arrays are located within the segments and are used to accommodate a module. Panels are placed within the row. These are the structures of every Divi website. Divi's simplest and biggest components for layout design are Divi chapters.
They are used to build large groups of contents and they are the first thing you need to attach to your page. You have three kinds of sections: Periodic segments consist of lines of column while full-width segments consist of full-width blocks that extend the full width of the display.
Special areas enable extended side bar layout. More information on using paragraphs can be found in our detailed paragraphs section-tour. Lines are located within segments and you can place any number of lines within a segment. After you have defined a columns layout for your line, you can insert a module into a required columns.
The number of cartridges you can place within a single row is not limited. You can find more information on using lines in our detailed Line Usage Guide. These are the components that make up your website. The Divi has every modul fits into every width of columns and is fully reactive.
There are three main modules (sections, lines and modules) used to create your page. You can add a section by pressing the cyan (+) key. If you move the mouse over a section that already appears on the page, a black (+) icon will appear below it. Once you have added your first section, you can begin to add lines of column in it.
One section can hold any number of lines, and you can merge and match lines of different columns of different type to produce a wide range of layout.
