I send helpful information like this to clients on a regular basis and often when they need to do something specific to their website. I’m a great believer of training and doing it yourself to your website where there is time and capacity. These helpful instructions will also help you to update your WordPress / Divi Slider and Blurbs. These are both modules in Divi so we look at the settings for these.

 

Updating the Slider

Navigate to Edit the Welcome page as usual

Click the “Hamburger Menu” on the Fullwidth Slider

The individual slides are laid out as light grey boxes. Click on the Hamburger Menu for each of these to access.

Once in you can change the Background Image by scrolling down a bit and clicking on the cog for background.

If you want to change or add text to a slide then you can do this on the same screen, but scroll up and put wording into the Visual Editor.

The larger text, or slide’s title is done under Heading which is at the top of this screen.

Updating the Images on the Homepage (Blurbs)

 

These are the sections on the website’s homepage where you can change / add the seasons / Menus in. Please use the same image set up which we have always used.

 

Change the title as is already there.

 

The URL to the new page (link) can be swapped out as follows. Have the destination page open in a new tab and copy and paste the link in from there.

Swap out the image a bit further down.

Click on Save & Exit as above.

 

Click on Update as normal.

 

 

You can add more in by cloning the row, which is the green section. Even numbers only as they are in 2’s.
