Access This Layout Right Now
Directly from Your Divi Builder

Since Version 3.0.99 of Divi, you can find and import any of the layouts included in this pack (along with ALL of Divi’s Premade Layout packs) directly from the Divi Builder. They are already waiting for you.
When you add a new page from the WordPress Dashboard, deploy the Visual Builder. You will be prompted with three choices regarding how you want to start building your page. Select the option “Choose A Premade Layout”.
Under the Premade Layouts tab, you can easily find the new layout by scrolling through the list of layout packs. Once you find the Layout Pack, click on it. You will see all the individual page layouts included in the pack. Select the page layout you want to use and then click the “Use This Layout” button.
You can also access new layouts at any time within the Visual Builder by clicking the “Load From Library” icon in the page settings bar (it looks like a plus symbol). Inside the Load From Library popup you can choose the new layout you want to use.
Before you can download Premade Layouts from the Divi Library you must authenticate your Elegant Themes Subscription. If you have already activated updates for Divi under Divi > Theme Options > Updates, you have already authenticated your subscription and will have access to the layouts without a problem. If not, when you click to import a layout to your page, you will be prompted to enter your Elegant Themes Membership Username and API Key.
After you enter the Username and API Key, you will gain immediate access to the layouts. You can find your API Key under your members area on the Elegant Themes site.
No Licensing Restrictions
The photos included with these layouts have no licensing restrictions. This means you can use them in all of your commercial projects without having to worry about paying licensing fees or attributing the photographer. Use them in your commercial websites, sell them within your Divi child themes, include them in your own Divi layout packs or just use them on your blog. We know how challenging it can be to find good photos and how confusing and scary the licensing that governs those photos can be. We want to fix that problem for our users.

New Layout Packs Every Week!
We hope you enjoy this layout pack. We look forward to hearing your opinions in the comment section below. Make sure you check back next week for more layout packs!
Also the titles on many heading or text blocks do not adjust well on mobile.
Look at the word “recommended” on a small screen. It nearly always clips the the last letter into the next line. Looks terrible. Not just on this layout but on all. Use a hyphen and split the word in too. Or better yet actually resize properly!
An extended version of amagazine layout for Extra would be very much appreciated,I am sure you had one in the old themes with dummy text ready laid out,any chance of doing an update on a theme that looks like the one shown on the extra demo please warmest regards
Sorry, not too impressed. My constructive feedback:
The magazine home page looks too sparse and disjointed. And the posts pages have no horizontal feature photo option, when most feature stories online today have horizontal feature photos (even the Divi Extra theme uses those). Huge block quotes look cool, but if they stand out too much, they distract from the story. By contrast, the post article copy is tiny and in a medium grey color, making it a challenge to read articles quickly. (Not all website users are 20- or 30-somethings with perfect vision!)
Finally, this is a magazine — so where are the advertisement blocks? (I realize that you can add in ad modules, but it would be nice to see a version of this layout pack with ad blocks already added.)
I do like the footer, but to me, the rest of this layout pack looks a bit sloppy and old-school. It’s fine for some photo-heavy novice blogs, but not suitable for a serious tech magazine.
It would be great to see a content-heavy magazine layout with post pages that have a built-in auto-loading feature for the next article in the same category. Surprisingly, it’s hard to find any good, modern magazine layouts, let alone with the next-post auto-loading feature.
