Navigate to the import tab, upload the JSON file that you could download in this post, and click on ‘Import Divi Theme Builder Templates’.
Save Divi Theme Builder Changes
Once you’ve uploaded the file, you’ll notice a new template with a new body area that has been assigned to All Category Pages. Save the Divi Theme Builder changes as soon as you want the template to be activated.
How to Modify The Template

To modify the template’s elements, start by opening the template’s body layout.
Inside the Body Layout Editor, you can edit the design on the front end using the Divi Builder just like you would with a normal Divi page.
About the Divi Poke Restaurant Category Template
This category page template has a few dynamic elements that will work automatically including:
- Category Page Post/Archive Title: This will show the name of the category/archive.
- Post Slider Module: This will cycle through the first three posts within the category/archive every 3.5 seconds.
- Blog Module: This will display 6 blog posts in 3 columns within the selected category/archive. This module includes an offset of 3 posts to account for the posts within the Post Slider Module in the header.
Here is a quick illustration that identifies the dynamic elements of the Poke Restaurant Category Page Template.
Updating the Template’s Dynamic Elements
Post Slider Module
Posts for Current Page
Since this is a template that has been assigned to all category pages for the site, there are going to be one or more blog modules that are set to display posts for the current page. This is how the template displays the posts dynamically for each category page. For this template, that will be the Post Slider Module and the Blog Module.
When you install the Divi Poke Restaurant Category Layout, the Post Count for the Post Slider Module will be set to the number three. However, you can change this value to suit your needs.
We also have set the speed of the Post Slider Module to 3,500 ms (milliseconds), which is also 3.5 seconds. However, you can change the speed of the transition within the Design tab of the Post Settings Module.
Similar to the Post Slider Module, the Blog Module will show the current posts for the selected category or archive. However, remember that if you have modified the number of posts that show up within your Post Slider Module, you will also need to update the Post Offset setting within this Blog Module so that there isn’t any repeated blog posts.
It is also recommended to keep the Post Count within a multiple of 6 (6, 12, 18 etc.).
Updating the Template’s Static Elements
Some elements on a category page template will need your immediate attention before using it live on your own website. These elements are called static because they will not update dynamically.
To allow the Email Optin Module to show up in your design, you’ll need to link an email account.
