Custom Post Types with Divi Library Items
Using Custom Post types and Divi Library items is not always easy.
You can use Globals and other elements to make it happen but updating can take a serious amount of time especially if you data changes for each field.
You may find yourself updating a layout for a house or car post type many times over to edit fields that show variables around your post type.
This is why we created out custom post type builder.
It can help you make custom plugins and post types to make it easier for your customers to edit content without resorting to re styling hundreds of posts for a simple change.
In this document we cover some of the time saving features of the Custom Post Builder.
Post Fields as Divi Modules
The Custom Post Builder plugin helps you create single layout template for your custom post type. It uses divi builder to create the layout thereby allowing you to leverage its benefits. Create professional looking layouts quickly.
While you have the ACF Field Divi Module which allows you to add post meta fields, the ability to add standard post fields was missing piece.
With the updates of 1.3.0 and 1.4.0 we have introduced Divi modules for the Divi Builder which helps you add the standard post fields to a Divi library item like:
- Post Content
- Post Excerpt
- Post Title
- Post Meta like author and date.
- Featured Image.
Post Content Divi Module
The DF Post Content divi module helps you add the post content on the custom post builder’s layout page. A toggle switch is provided to enable post content line breaks. On the design tab, you can control the post content text styles
Post Excerpt Divi Module
The DF Post Excerpt divi module helps you add the post excerpt on the custom post builder’s layout page. On the design tab, you can control the post excerpt text styles
Other Post Fields
Divi has a module called Post Title. It helps to insert post title, post meta like author date, featured image etc.
With the help of the above modules, ACF Field Divi Module and user-defined custom field formatters you build complex page layouts using the Custom Post Builder. A very powerful tool to have in your arsenal.
