The release of the Divi Theme Builder Library hands you the power to organize your Theme Builder templates in a deeper way. The Divi Theme Builder Library allows you to save your favorite templates and template sets, along with their assignments. Coupled with Divi Cloud, you can now copy your headers, footers, blog posts and more from one website — or web host — to another. There is no longer a need to download any additional files. Before we learn how to upload Divi Theme Builder Templates to Divi Cloud, let’s take a quick look at what Divi Theme Builder Templates are and their benefits to your workflow.
What Are Divi Theme Builder Templates?
There was a time when one of the biggest gripes that people had with website builders was their inability to control the design of headers, footers and blog posts, to name a few. When Divi brought the Theme Builder to life, this all changed. We are now blessed with a powerful tool that enables us to have deep control over many elements of our websites. Divi Theme Builder Templates are the blocks that we use to be able to do this. We can create a template that we can apply to all pages, all posts within a certain category, and even custom post types.
The Benefits of Using Divi Theme Builder Templates
The templates bring a “set it and forget it” approach to our design process. We do not need to redo a design for every piece of content on our site. For example, if we want all blog posts to have a featured image, we don’t need to add a Post Title Module to every blog post on our site. Instead, we would create a Divi Theme Builder Template. Next, we would assign it to all posts on our blog. Then, we would determine the design that we want. This will then be propagate to each blog post that we have on our website. Through creating and assigning a Divi Theme Builder Template, we are able to control the design and functionality in one place.
When it comes to the web designer’s process, this can be extremely helpful. If a client is looking to make a change to a design, you can use the assigned Divi Theme Builder Template to quickly make a change. This change would then reflect across the entire site. You can find some free Divi Theme Builder Templates released weekly on our blog.
Why Upload Divi Theme Builder Templates to Your Divi Cloud?
Now that we have an understanding of why we use Divi Theme Builder Templates, let’s briefly touch on how their power is magnified with Divi Cloud. As the name implies, Divi Cloud is a cloud based product. Think of it as Dropbox — or Google Drive! — for your Divi elements. By uploading our Divi Theme Builder templates to Divi Cloud, we can take our designs from one site to the next, without any issues. Irrespective of the web host you use, you can bring your headers, footers, blog post templates and more to your new Divi install. As long as you have an active Divi and Divi Cloud subscription, you can have a streamlined design process that will save you time as you are building sites.
