These Divi blog tutorials are excellent. While I have used Divi for years now, I will never be able to fully exploit it’s full potential. Articles like this continue to provide huge value!!
Thanks for this collection of articles. They are really helpful but doesn’t solve one of my biggest gripes with Divi.
That is that after all these years it’s still not possible to create custom blog grid cards with the Theme Builder. So I really hope that this will become a high priority for the Divi devs. No extra frills and gadgets needed, just a native post grid card builder. Thanks.
