Web Pages vs Post Types – On the frontend of a website, every page can be considered a “web page.” However, on the backend of your website, “Pages” refers to a specific Post Type.

The Pages section in the backend is home to all page entries. In WordPress, “Pages” are a specific Post Type and are typically used for static content on web pages like the Home, About, Contact, and similar pages. To manage your litters and dogs, you’ll add and edit entries within the Litters and Dogs sections of the website backend. These are Custom Post Types created specifically for your dog breeding website.

Editing Pages

To edit a page, log in and navigate to the “Pages” area of the WordPress Dashboard. If you hover over an entry, a submenu will appear with the following options: Edit | Quick Edit | Trash | View | Edit With Divi.

Clicking “Edit” will open a page where you can add or edit the SEO meta information associated with the page. This is the heading and description that presents in Search Engine Results Pages (SERPs). You also have the option to add or update the Featured Image.

Quick Edit

Clicking “Quick Edit” will keep you on the same page and open a form where you can modify the following details: title, slug, date, author, password, privacy, parent, order, template, comments, status, and meta title and description fields.

By clicking “Trash,” you’ll move the entry to the trash.


By clicking “View,” you’ll open the entry on the frontend of the website.

Edit With Divi

By clicking “Edit With Divi,” you’ll open the entry in the Divi Page Builder. This is where you’ll update the page content.

Understanding the Divi Page Builder

Divi uses color to communicate aspects of its interface.

  • Purple – Page settings
  • Blue – Sections
  • Grass Green – Rows
  • Black – Modules
  • Neon Green – Global Modules

Global Modules (Neon Green)
Global modules can be a section, row, or module. They’re items used in multiple locations on the website. If it’s updated on one page that change will be reflected anywhere that global asset is used. To edit content within a global asset, please contact Support.

Wireframe View

The Wireframe View transforms the Visual Builder into a block-based presentation. For long, complicated pages, switching to Wireframe View allows you to make quick updates to the page by easily locating and modifying blocks of content.

Zoom Out

As the name implies, the Zoom Out view allows you to see the page from a distance.

The desktop view shows the website in full-frame.

Tablet View

You’re able to preview how your website will generally present to users on iPads and tablets using the Tablet View. This is not an exact match for how the page will be seen and should not be considered a replacement for professional device testing.

Divi Builder Helper

Divi comes with 70 full-length instructional videos that cover just about every Divi topic. Because you don’t have full administrative permissions, not all of the instructional videos will be relevant.

Editing Content

Sections (blue) and Rows (green)

Though you can see the blue and green outlines of the sections and rows, your user role doesn’t have the necessary permissions to edit them.

Modules (black)

Modules are where editable media and content are located. There are two ways you can edit the textual content. 

  1. Place your cursor over the text you want to edit and click. You’ll now be able to highlight, backspace, and add, change, or remove the text. 
  2. Hover over the content you want to edit and click on the module setting cog icon. The setting box will open and you can update the text or media from the fields in this settings box.
