What You Need to Get Started

Install and Activate Divi

Before we begin, install and activate the Divi Theme and make sure you have the latest version of Divi on your website.

Add Portfolio Projects

In order for the portfolio to populate with projects once we add it to our page, we first need to add the projects in the WordPress dashboard. Select Projects in the WordPress dashboard sidebar, then add a new project. Make sure the project has a featured image and a category so that it can be filtered.

Let’s start by using a premade layout from the Divi library. We will use the Painter Portfolio Page from the Painter layout pack for this design.

Add a new page to your website, give it a title, and select the option to Use Divi Builder.

  1. This is a wonderful capability … just like so many of the fabulous features you have piled on to Divi over the years. Sadly, however, all the bloat used to produce all these features has made it impossible for those of us who would like to work efficiently with a lean, clean Divi (iike we bought a lifetime license to use) to even perform the most basic task like SAVING OUR WORK.

    Every other month I’m banging on the door at ET support to get help with saving / updating a page. This is nonsense and I will ask again, could you PLEASE offer Divi Lite? A wireframe only GUI that is free from all the thousands of lines of code associated with the Visual Builder?

  2. WHY? Why can’t we easily and responsively change the number of rows in either portfolio module? I’ve tried so many CSS options and none work properly (rows keep breaking).
