  2. thank you for the FAQ section. it is simple and clear!fastest way to have page up and running! could i explore any ways for divi theme to set perform schema FAQ, so it may appear search result?

  3. Thanks for sharing!
    I think there is an issue with the JSON export/import. The layout has been imported with no error but it has NO “type”, as it should be “layout”. In addition, it’s not accessible/visible in the Page Builder as well.
    Thanks in advance for your help.

    • Ibrahim, are you using the newest version of Divi?

      • I’m using Version 3.27.4

  4. wow! this design looks so nice. I just love it.
