    At 1:46:26 you were so close to answering what i came for. But how do you change the icon across every page. It can only change the color. I mean on the "shop" page the shop isnt put in as a module, so you cant use the advanced design option for the module :/

    This tutorial is great! But… I do have a problem at 23 min. 42 sec. If I click on latest work, the permalink is fine, but I get an error "404 not found". I build a few wordpress sites before, never a Divi, this is the first time I get this error. Can you help me out please? By the way, I’m dutch also, but in case anyone else has the same problem, better talk english

    This is helpful. Thank you for sharing this tutorial. I’ve got stuck in one area. I was working on a page through the visual builder and then took a break. When I tried to edit the page again, I am not seeing the visual editor in the front page. I am also not seeing the backend default editor. I can only see Revisions column and other sections in the edit page. Can you please help me in locating what is it that I need to correct for me to see the visual editor and default builder ? I did safe my previous work but cannot edit further.

    Hi ferdy! I’ve bought enfold but now i have some requests i cant not solve with it, i’m thinking about buying divi, but i need advise, do you hAve idea if i can do the following with this theme? I have a client a she wants the following:

    1- she wants several pages, each of the pages she wants to be in different colours, i mean one page in blue, other in orange, red, etc.. I was wondering if i can change the colour of the font for each page, because she wnats to highlight ramdom words for ecah page in the correspondant colour. (you know whay i mean?)

    2- in the menu, i would like to hoover and maintain the colour corresponding for the page. I mean, if that page is in red, i’d like to have the link menu in red, that supposed to be different colours for each link.

    3- she wants to put diagrams in the pages. For example, a big circle (In blue colour) in the middle of one page and over that circle, put some text.

    really appreciate your support.

    regards and Merry Xmas!!!

    Question: What do you say about the technique of the Divi theme when it comes about SEO.
    I heared someplace else that the previous divi themes, were not the best for SEO purposes(i thought they meant cause of the shortcode technique)

    Any experience or knowledge in this please?

    Alvast bedankt:)

    Hey Ferdy… I would like to know your opinion… what is in the better theme for you, Enfold or Divi 3.0? What do you prefer, or what you like on Enfold that Divi is lacking and vice versa… thanks!

    Hi, thanks for the tutorial.
    The issue I have been having which was making things very frustrating was when trying to make my full-width slider it was not being as responsive as I would have expected. Every time I got it right on one computer it looked terrible on iPhone or laptop, I tried adding code and adjusting so many things, spent hours just trying to complete this task. I am using version Version: 3.0.24 so don’t know if the updated version fixes this but I am hesitant to upgrade to update as I was given this version and can’t find the product key. Do you know if the new version is as responsive as enfold or is it still a working progress? Thanks

    Hello friend, first of all, I congratulate you for your tutorial. It’s very good. I’ve learned a lot with this divi designer. I wanted to ask you how I can create a login for users to register and publish news or posts in a tab I have designed for that part. As I would in that case. First of all, Thanks
