Divi: The best WordPress theme of all time!

With the Divi Portfolio module, you can show your work anywhere on your site with any column structure. In this tutorial, I will show you how to use the wallet module on Divi.

How to add a Divi Wallet module

Before you can add a wallet module to your page, you must first jump into the Divi Builder. Once the Divi theme is installed on your website, you will notice a button Use Divi Builder above the publisher each time you create a new page. Click this button to activate Divi Builder and access all Divi Builder modules. Then click on the button Use Visual Builder to start the generator in visual mode. You can also click on the button Use Visual Builder when you browse your website in the foreground if you are connected to your WordPress dashboard.

Once you have entered Visual Builder, you can click the gray plus button to add a new module to your page. New modules can only be added inside the lines. If you start a new page, do not forget to add a line to your page first.

Locate the portfolio 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 "wallet" and then click on "Enter" to automatically search and add the portfolio module! Once the module is added, you will be greeted by the list of options of the module. These options are separated into three main groups: Contents , Design et Advanced .

CSS class

Enter the optional CSS classes to use for this module. A CSS class can be used to create a custom CSS style. You can add multiple classes, separated by a space. These classes can be used in your Divi child theme or in the custom CSS style sheet that you add to your page or website by using Divi theme options or Divi Builder page settings.

Custom CSS

Custom CSS can also be applied to the module and to one of the internal elements of the module. In the Custom CSS section, you will find a text field in which you can add custom CSS style sheets directly to each element. The CSS entries in these parameters are already wrapped in the style tags. So just enter the CSS rules separated by semicolons.

Visibility

This option allows you to control the devices on which your module appears. You can choose to disable your module on tablets, smart phones or desktops individually. This is useful if you want to use different modules on different devices, or if you want to simplify mobile design by eliminating certain elements of the page.

  1. Hello, I would like to know if it is possible to have a presentation in the form of a grid with three columns and not four. By default, my projects are aligned by four horizontally and as I wanted to put six, I would have liked to have a presentation in three columns and two lines. I delved into the options but I didn't find anything about it…
    Thank you in advance for your help.

  2. Hello, can you explain to me why there is a very big space between each column of my portfolio, under the elements. Not on the left and right but rather under the rows. Thank you very much.

  3. Hello,

    Do you know if it is possible to add an extract visible to the portfolio under the title?

    Thank you in advance
