Layout Library Content
The Divi Den Pro – Layout Library comes with 2615 library items. This includes 1988 sections and modules, 631 layouts, 39 menus, and 18 complete website designs. All of the items are pre-styled. The layouts are labeled, tested, and optimized for different screen sizes.
There are several ways to use them in your Divi layouts. You’ll find the layouts in the Divi Den Pro DM menu and in the Divi Theme Builder. The Divi Den Pro DM menu is the easiest way to use them. You can search them by keyword and category and import them to your Divi Library.
You’ll find a new menu item in your WordPress dashboard called Divi Den Pro DM. The menu includes lots of links, which you’ll also find as tabs within the menu itself.
The first tab is the Layout Finder. This includes a search box with filters on the left and the results on the right. It also includes tabs so you can view all layouts, only the free layouts, or just the pro layouts. The filters show the number of layouts in that type. They’re divided into layouts, sections, modules, categories, collections, Divi Theme Builder, and Plugin Theme Builder.
The results area shows a thumbnail of the layout. The thumbnail will scroll on hover if the layout is larger than the container. You can view the layout in another tab, save the layout to your Divi Library, or download the layout to your computer as a JSON file.
Selecting a filter opens it to show the options. I’ve opened Collections, which shows the names of layouts from Divi Den. Selecting one shows the layouts within that collection in the area on the right.
I clicked to view a layout and it opened the demo on the Divi Den page in another tab. The page shows multiple layouts, sections, etc. I’m hovering over the image in the top center to show its hover effects.
The Latest tab shows the latest posts from the Divi Den blog. This is a good way to learn what’s new in the Layout Library.
The Tutorials tab includes all of the tutorials that teach how to use Divi Den Pro – Layout Library. They include embedded videos that show when you click on a tutorial, so you can learn directly from the Divi Den dashboard without leaving WordPress. This helps with usability, so if there’s something you need help with, you’ll find it here.
The Theme Builder tab divides the layouts into Divi Theme Builder and Plugin Theme Builder. It shows the collections, page types, etc. These are also added to the Divi Theme Builder. You can also launch the Theme Builder from here.
The Plugin Theme Builder has a link to open the Theme Customizer.
The Theme Customizer adds three new customizer tabs for page, blog, and global settings. This includes added features such as a popup customizer, a sticky bar, more icons, the back-to-top button, a coming soon page, template customizations, and lots more.
Custom CSS Files
The Custom CSS Files tab provides the custom CSS from the Divi Den layouts that you can copy and modify. Clicking one opens the CSS in another tab. An embedded video shows how to use the custom CSS.
The Advanced tab includes the White Label tab and the More Options tab. White Label lets you rebrand the plugin to match your brand.
The More Options tab lets you move the Divi Den Pro tab within the Divi Builder elements. This is enabled by default.
Divi Den Pro Layout Library in the Divi Builder
A tab for the Divi Den Pro – Layout Library is added to the Modules modal.
Selecting the tab opens the menu where you can choose the layout you want. The layouts are downloaded as JSON files, so you’ll need to upload them to pages and posts if you want to use them.

This one is Visual Progress Bar Page Freddie. It has an elegant layout, but the main element I want to show is the progress bar. This is the hero section of the layout. A menu sits at the bottom of the screen. When you scroll, the menu attaches to the top of the screen and shows the progress through the layout.
The section in this example is case studies. The progress bar shows yellow for every section that I’ve scrolled past. The images for this section include tilt effects.
