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]

The Divi Person module is the best way to create a Personal profile block. This is a great add-on to use on About Me pages or those that feature team members where you want to create a bio of individual people. This module combined text, imagery and social media links into one cohesive module.

How to configure the Divi Person module

Before you can add a Divi Person module to your page, you must first jump into 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. Click on this button to activate Divi Builder and access 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 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 rows. If you are starting a new page, remember to add a row to your page first. We have great tutorials on using the elements of lines and sections by Divi.

Locate the person 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 "person" and then click enter to automatically find and add the Person module! Once the module is added, you will be greeted by the module options list. These options are separated into three main groups: Contents , Design et Advanced .

Example Use Case: Adding an "Our Team" Section to an About Us Page

The about us page is a good place to introduce your team members using the Person module. It adds a personal touch and can help build trust with new customers.

For this example, I'll show you how to use the Person module to add a "Our Team" section to a page about a small business. I'll be using a three person, three column layout which keeps the section more compact and matches the overall design of the page.

Using Visual Builder, insert a new standard section with a row of three columns (1/3 1/3 1/3). Then add a Person module to the first column.

  2. Hello!
    When I create a project or post and use the Person pod, why does the Position field disappear when I view projects or posts using the blog or filterable blog pod?

    How to make the Person Position field visible in a Blog Grid view?

    The thank you box

    1. Good evening and thank you for the wait.
      Usually, search modules do not execute shortcodes. Therefore, the Person module (like any other module) generates a shortcode that can only be rendered by previewing the article or page and not from a module that offers a preview of said article or page.
