  1. Hello everybody
    My name is Eric and I am new to this blog.
    I just bought DIVI and I am not really an expert. I created a site using the divi builder. I went 'from scratch'. I created sections, columns, and modules. I put in content and I styled each content. In BACK, with the DIVI builder activated, all is well and my site is nice. On the other hand when I visualize it in FRONT I have the content but not the style.
    However, I validate each modification and I save well before leaving the builder. In addition, I regularly empty my cache, I added memory allocation in my wp-config.php (define ('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '64M');
    Helping hands please?
    thanks in advance
