How to use the Summary module on Divi Builder

Divi: the easiest WordPress theme to use

Divi: The best WordPress theme of all time!

With over 701.000 downloads, Divi is the most popular WordPress theme in the world. It is complete, easy to use and comes with more than 62 free templates. [Recommended]

Before you can add a Summary module to your page, you must first access the Divi Builder. Once the Divi theme is installed on your website, you will notice a button Use Divi Builder above the post editor whenever you create a new page. By clicking on this button, you activate Divi Builder, which gives you access to all the Divi Builder modules. Then click on the button Use Visual Builder to start the generator in visual mode. You can also click the button Use Visual Builder when you are browsing your upstream website if you are logged in to your WordPress dashboard.

Once entered into Visual Builder, you can click the gray plus button to add a new module to your page. New modules can only be added inside rows. If you are starting a new page, remember to add a row to your page first.

Find the Summary module in the list of modules and click on it to add it to your page. The list of modules is searchable, which means you can also type the word "Summary" and then click enter to automatically find and add the descriptive text module! Once the module is added, you will be greeted with the list of module options. These options are divided into three main groups: Contents , Design et Advanced .

Since the Summary module combines both images and text to showcase certain features, you can use it to add a list of your business services to your home page. The Blurb module also allows you to turn your image / icon and title into a link to your service page. For this example, I'm going to use the Blurb module to add four featured services to a homepage.

To add the four Blurbs to your page, use the visual builder to add a standard section with a four column row. Then add a Blurb module to the first column of your row.

Update the Blurb settings with the following:

Content options

Title: [enter service title] Content: [enter a brief description of the service] URL: [add a URL to the service page] Use the icon: YES
Icon: [select an icon that illustrates your service]

Design options

Icon Color: # 42bb99 (make the color that compliments the design of the site)
Use the Font Size icon: YES
Icon Font Size: 68px (adjusts icon size)
Text Orientation: Center -
Head Font Size: 24px
Font size: 18px
Body Line Height: 1.5em

Now your first introductory text is finished.

Now duplicate the Summary module you just created three times and drag each of the duplicated summaries to the other three columns. As your design parameters have been integrated into your duplicate modules, you just need to change the content (header, content, icon, URL, etc.) and change the colors to suit each of your services.

Summary Content Options

In the content tab you will find all the content elements of the module, such as text, images and icons. All that controls what appears in your module will always be in this tab.

Title

Give your text a title that will appear above the text in a bold text style. The URL option located under the Title field will allow you to make your title a hyperlink.

Contents

This field is where you can enter the body content of your text. Blurb Text will also cover the entire width of your column up to 550px.

URL

Place a valid web url in this field to turn your Blurb title into a link. Leaving this field blank will just leave your title as a static element.

Use icon

When using Blurbs, you can choose to use an icon or an image with your text. If you select “Yes” for the “Use icon” option, you will be offered the following options to customize your icon. If you don't choose to use an icon, you'll be prompted to upload an image instead.

Icon

If you have chosen “Yes” for the “Use icon” setting, this option will appear. This option presents you with a list of available icons that you can use with your blurb. Just click on the icon you want to use and it will appear in your text.

Image

If you did not choose to use an icon, this setting will appear. Place a valid image url here, or choose / upload an image via the WordPress media library. Images in the Summary module always appear centered in their columns and span the entire width of your column up to 550px. However, your image will never be larger than its original upload size. The height of the presentation image is determined by the aspect ratio of your original image. It is therefore advisable to place all your presentation images at the same height if you place them side by side.

Background color

Define a custom background color for your module or leave blank to use the default color.

Background picture

If set, this image will be used as the background for this module. To remove a background image, just remove the URL from the Settings field. The background images will appear on top of the background colors, which means your background color will not be visible when a background image is applied.

Admin Label

This will change the module label in the generator for easy identification. When using the WireFrame view in Visual Builder, these labels will appear in the module block of the Divi Builder interface.

Summary module design options

In the Design tab, you will find all the module styling options, such as fonts, colors, size and spacing. This tab allows you to modify the appearance of your module. Each Divi module has a long list of design settings that you can use to tweak just about anything.

Circle border color

Use icon font size

If this option is enabled, you can enter a custom size for the icon displayed above or two to the left of your blurb.

Text color

If your blurb is placed on a dark background, the text color should be set to “Dark”. Conversely, if your blurb is placed on a light background, the text color should be set to “Light”.

  1. Hello,
    I want to use the summary module to insert around 200 thumbnails on a page.
    Each thumbnail represents a product title for sale but I don't want to use woocommerce, just a contact link ...
    This page will be regularly updated with new thumbnails.
    These thumbnails (so the 200 summary modules) should be listed in alphabetical order (based on the title), also when I add new modules at the end of the page ...
    Do you know how I could do this?
    merci beaucoup
