For those of you that are unfamiliar with the Divi library, this post will go over what it is and how it will make your life a whole lot easier. The Divi library not only saves you time but also helps keep your pages consistent with one another. When you use the Divi builder when creating posts or pages, you are given the option of loading or saving layouts, sections or rows to the Divi library.

1.) First thing you want to do is find a page with a layout, section or row that you like and save it to your Divi library.

2.) Once you have this item saved to your library, simply insert a section, row or module to the page and click ‘Add from Library’ and thats it!

Saving Whole Layouts 

With the Divi Library you can save whole layouts in the click of a button and use it on separate pages. At any point of your design stage you will find the following purple bar at the top of the page. By clicking ‘Save to library’ this will prompt a box to pop up which will ask you to name your layout. This layout will then get saved to the library and you will be able to access it on any page or post.

Saving Sections or Rows

Not only can you save whole layouts but you can save any section or row with it’s contained modules. This can be found from the section or row settings window. At the bottom of the page you will see a ‘Save & Add to Library’ button. By clicking this button you are saving an entire section or row with all of its settings intact.

Saving Modules

Along with saving layouts, sections and rows you can also save individual modules. Just as we did with the previous elements you would simply open your module settings and click ‘Save and Add To Library’.

Saving Global Items

You might have noticed al little checkbox that says ‘Make this a global item’ when you save your row, section or module. A global item is synced and mirrored wherever it appears on your website. Once you make changes to a global item it is automatically updated on all pages.  A  good use of a global item would be a footer that is on every page.
