Tech Tip: Creating Image Posts with the Divi Theme

The Divi Theme is incredibly powerful. It’s also incredibly complex, which can be intimidating and confusing. Here’s a gentle introduction to working with posts with the Divi Theme showing how to create an “Image” style post.

Creating a New “Image” Style Post

  1. Log in to the Dashboard for your website
  2. On the left menu, hover on “Posts” and select “Add New”
  3. Give the post a meaningful title (this may also appear in the url)
  4. Click the purple button under the title labeled “Use The Divi Builder”
  5. Click “Insert Columns” and choose the long rectangle at the top left
  6. Click “Insert Modules” and choose the “Image” module
  7. Click the black button at the top right labeled “Upload An Image”
  8. Choose the file in your Media Library or click the tab “Upload Files”
  9. To upload a file, follow the prompts on the screen
  10. Click the blue button at the bottom right labeled “Set As Image”
  11. Go to the Design tab to adjust styling (like centering and box shadow)
  12. Click the green button at the bottom labeled Save & Exit
  13. Adjust the page settings (like No Sidebar) and check the Categories
  14. Click “Publish”

Editing an Existing “Image” Style Post
