How to Make A Blog Post Using Advanced Custom Fields in the Divi Theme Builder
Our Next meetup will include a presentation and demonstration by Julius Lopez, Div Los Angeles Organizer, entitled “How to Make A Blog Post Using Advanced Custom Fields in the Divi Theme Builder.”
What are Advance Custom Fields?
Advanced Custom Fields are a WordPress plugin that allows users to create custom fields and custom taxonomies. It’s built on the premise of being simple and easy to use, with intuitive UI/UX design. This will enable you to have more control over how your website looks and better your content. The plugin is an easy way to add extra features to any WordPress site and comes with many different templates for creating the most advanced fields possible.
You can find this free plugin in the WordPress Plugin Directory or search “Advanced Custom Fields” on Google.
What is the Divi Theme Builder?
The Divi Theme Builder is a drag and drop website builder that allows you to create beautiful, custom websites without coding skills. You can choose from many different pre-made layouts or start from scratch and build your own.
With more than 100 modules to choose from, each with its own set of design options, the possibilities are endless.
What is Dynamic Content, and how does it relate to the Divi theme builder?
Dynamic content is a term used in web design to describe the process of using WordPress as a CMS (content management system) for your website. This means that you can update your site’s content quickly and easily through WordPress without knowing how to code, making it perfect for designers who want more control over their sites’ content. For example, the Divi theme builder from Elegant Themes uses dynamic content by allowing users to customize their own layouts with drag-and-drop modules instead of writing custom CSS or HTML.
The Divi theme builder from Elegant Themes uses dynamic content fields to populate post modules and pages with text and images from a WordPress database. Dynamic content fields are advanced custom fields that standard WordPress posts don’t use, but advanced users can create.
This makes it possible for the user to place, with just a single click on a field, an element like post title, metadata, and featured images anywhere on the page. As well as create new custom fields that will appear on all posts.
Examples for Using Dynamic Content to Build Layouts using Divi Theme Builder
All Divi modules come with dynamic content fields pre-configured for use depending on the type of module.
If you would like to experiment with dynamic content features, you can download a blog post example on the Elegant Themes website.
So please join our Divi DC meetup on June 23, 2021, at 7pm for a live demonstration.
