For most projects, we use the Divi builder, which allows our clients to edit their own websites easily in the future without too much support.

The Divi builder allows you to edit your website pages using the drag-drop feature via the backend page builder or the visual builder.

The visual builder has the advantage of allowing you to amend the page on the frontend of the website, previewing your changes instantly on the page. You just click on the text and start typing, giving you a more accurate picture of how your visitors experience your website content.

Whereas you must visit the dashboard to edit via the backend builder. The backend builder is more similar to the way WordPress works initially, however with more control. On the back end, you see the wireframe mode only, giving you a good idea of how your page is layout.

The anatomy of Divi builder explained…

The structure of every Divi website uses three types of building blocks: Sections, Rows and Modules. Sections are the largest building blocks. Then you have your rows, which sit inside of sections. Modules are placed inside of rows.

Modules are the content elements which allow you to insert or edit text, videos, images, call to action and much more. Carry on reading if you want to know how to edit your modules.
