What are Divi modules and how do we use them?
Divi modules are the content building blocks that you will use to create your website when using the Divi Theme or the Divi builder plugin.
Divi Builder modules (dark grey) can be added into the columns of any standard row (green), which in turn sits inside a column (blue). Divi full-width modules can only go inside a full width section (purple).
Each of the Divi builder module is designed to allow you to easily add specific types of content to your website from basic text through to contact forms and product listings, without having to code them in yourself.
Once you have added a module into the Divi builder you can customize it with your own content and style it within the module settings. Modules (and rows and sections) can then be moved by drag & drop anywhere within your page or saved to use on another page or site.
How many Divi modules are there?
Divi comes pre-loaded by default with 46 modules so you are able to start building your site right out-of-the-box.
37 of these modules are designed for use within the regular width sections and 9 are only for use within a full-width section.
There are also many 3rd party developers who have created additional custom modules (usually via a Divi plugin) to further extend the building block options and functionality within Divi.
