Divi Layouts Extended Dashboard
A new Divi Layouts Extended menu is added to the WordPress dashboard. Clicking it opens the new dashboard where you can select the layouts you want. I found this dashboard to be simple and highly intuitive.
It includes tabs to see the layouts, modules, sections, or pages. You can also search for anything you want and sort them by popularity, name, and date in ascending or descending order. The layouts appear as cards. You can preview the layout or save it to your library, scroll the larger layouts to see them, and preview the layouts to get a better look at them. This example shows the All tab, which includes modules, sections, and pages.
Scrolling to the bottom of the list is navigation where you can select a page or choose First or Last.
Clicking Preview opens the item on the Divi Layouts Extended website. You can scroll through the layout, click on all the clickable things, hover to see the hover effects, and see the layout with images, products, etc.
When you choose Save to Library, the layout will import, and the button changes from a purple button to a green Saved button.
You’ll also see the layout in your library where you can use it as normal in your pages, posts, and the Divi Theme Builder. They’ll include the categories and types. In this example, I’ve saved a home page. It includes the home page category and layout type.
