The Divi Gallery Module

How to add, configure and customize the Divi gallery module.

Sharing a collection of images is always a great way to visually engage users in your content. The Gallery module lets you create and organize galleries anywhere on your website. The Divi Builder gallery module comes in both grid and slider format and supports large galleries with pagination.

How To Add A Gallery Module To Your Page

Before you can add a gallery module to your page, you will first need to jump into the Divi Builder. Once the Divi Theme has been installed on your website, you will notice a Use Divi Builder button above the post editor every time you are building a new page. Clicking this button will enable the Divi Builder, giving you access to all of the Divi Builder’s modules. Next, click the Use Visual Builder button to launch the builder in Visual Mode. You can also click the Use Visual Builder button when browsing your website on the front end if you are logged in to your WordPress Dashboard.

Once you have entered the Visual Builder, you can click the gray plus button to add a new module to your page. New modules can only be added inside of Rows. If you are starting a new page, don’t forget to add a row to your page first. We have some great tutorials about how to use Divi’s row and section elements.

Locate the gallery module within the list of modules and click it to add it to your page. The module list is searchable, which means you can also type the word “gallery” and then click enter to automatically find and add the gallery module! Once the module has been added, you will be greeted with the module’s list of options. These options are separated into three main groups: Content, Design and Advanced.

Use Case Example: Adding a Fullwidth Image Gallery to Showcase Photography.

Adding a Gallery to your photography page is a great way to promote your work and increase credibility with clients. In this example, I’m going to show you how you can use the gallery module to add an image gallery with a grid layout that stretches the full width of the page. The images have no spacing between them which gives it a practical and aesthetic presentation.

And let’s not forget that each image opens a lightbox popup to scroll through larger versions of the images in the gallery.

Using the Visual Builder, add a new section under the header section with a fullwidth (1 column) row. Then add the Gallery Module to the row.

Update the Gallery Module Settings as follows:

Content Options

Gallery Images: Click updated gallery an select the images you want to include in the gallery.
Images Number: 12
Show Title and Caption: NO
Show Pagination: NO

Design Options

Layout: Grid

Zoom Icon Color: #ffffff
Hover Overlay Color: rgba(0,0,0,0.48)

Save Settings

Now all that is left to do is get rid of all the space around the images. Go back and select row settings. Under the Design tab update the following:

Make This Row Fullwidth: YES
Use Custom Gutter Width: YES
Gutter Width: 1

It is important to remember that the number value “1” for gutter width is really zero (no width at all).
