Modules Inside Modules

Sometimes it’s nice to be able to put modules inside other modules, such as tabs or accordions.

  1. Create your module (or row) and save it to the Divi library as a GLOBAL module
  2. Go to the Divi Library and click on the module you just created. When the page loads, look in the page url for ‘post=x’. The number that you see there is what you will put inside this shortcode (replace the x): 
    [dh_module id="x"]
  3. Paste the shortcode wherever you want that module to appear. This also works on rows and sections.
  • Mobile-Friendly Backend Builder

You can do some basic editing on your mobile device with the visual builder, but the backend builder works better than the frontend builder on a mobile device (although you can’t see your changes in real-time).

This hack makes the backend builder mobile-friendly so you can quickly edit pages on the go.

This hack is automatically turned on when you activate the Divi Hacks plugin.

Visual Builder Module Hover

The visual builder is amazing, but when you’re in hover mode, those little gray boxes get in the way when trying to edit modules, especially in text modules.

When turned on, this hack adds a gray outline to the modules when you hover over them to help you see which module you are selecting. It also moves the gray boxes outside the gray outline so they don’t obstruct your view.

Divi Theme Options Tweaks

We’ve added a couple tweaks to the Divi Theme Options page that improves the experience adding Custom CSS.

1. The SAVE CHANGES button floats on the bottom of the page so you don’t need to scroll down to it everytime you make changes.

2. The Custom CSS Box is set to 90% of the browser window’s height to make it easier to add custom CSS.

SVG Uploads

No configuration required!

We’ve enabled SVG uploads so you can upload super clear and crisp SVG versions of your logo and other graphics.

Admin Dashboard Custom CSS

Customize the look of the WordPress Admin Dashboard for your clients!

Add any Custom CSS that you want to apply to the WordPress Admin Dashboard. This will affect all pages in the backend only.

 Find this box under the Admin tab on the Divi Hacks settings page.

Device Specific Classes

The Divi Hacks plugin automatically adds the following classes to the body of the website depending on the  size of the screen.

  • is-phone
  • is-tablet
  • is-mobile
  • is-desktop

Now, any custom CSS styles you want to add to your website, you can prepend one of these classes to your CSS styles. Example:

body.is-phone .my-box { background-color: aqua; }
body.is-desktop .my-box { background-color: lime; }
body.is-tablet .my-box { background-color: yellow; }

Resize your browser window and try it out for yourself. 

Hide Main Header, Top Header, Logo, and/or Footer on a page by page basis.

  • Auto-Hide Admin Bar
  • This hack hides the admin bar by default so it doesn’t interfere when designing your website.
  • All you have to do is turn the hack on. To show the admin bar, hover your mouse over the top 10 pixels of the browser window and the admin bar will become visible. See the below picture.

Current User Meta Shortcodes

This hack gives you some shortcodes to display user meta data of the currently logged-in user.

[user-display-name] 

[user-first-name]

[user-last-name] 

[user-username]

[user-email]

[user-avatar]

[user-avatar]allows the following attributes:

  • size (in px, defaults to 50)
  • style (any custom css)
  • class (add ‘circle’ to make it a circle)

Example: [user-avatar size="100" class="circle" style="border:2px solid #000"]

Space Between Classes

  • Since this plugin uses classes a lot, turning this hack on will add some space between classes you list in the element settings.

White Label

You can replace the word “Hacks” throughout the admin dashboard. 

Wider Visual Builder Popup

 

This hack makes it easier to browse the modules in the visual builder by making the add module popup wider.

  • These body classes are automatically enabled with this plugin. The currently logged-in user’s role(s) and id will be added to the body classes on both the frontend and backend (wp-admin).

The user ID class will look like this: user-id-454

The user role will simply state the role: subscriber or administrator
