Divi's options: the Creator tab

Updated on 20/03/2020 | Published on 22/08/2019 | 6 comments

How to set the options present in the Creator tab of the Divi Theme options? What are they used for? How to make the right choices?

Even if one of the recent updates of the Divi theme has incorporated new and more appropriate translations, it sometimes remains a little unclear.

To obtain Divided into "good French", you can read this article.

The proof is for this tab named "Creator"I'm not sure what that means... However, here we'll talk more about performance and user experience.

This is what we will see in this article. Here is the program:

  1. The sub-tab "Integration of the post type"
  2. The sub-conglet "advanced"
  3. The others Divi theme options

1 - The sub-tab " Creator > Post type integration".

Tab "Integration of the post type"

As you can see on this screenshot, nothing very complicated here.

You can, if you wish, enable or disable the Divi Builder on certain types of posts such as :

  1. The articles
  2. The pages
  3. The projects

By default, all of these are enabled.

Why disable them? This can be useful if you employ editors on your site and you do not want them to be able to use the Divi Builder on certain types of publications.

For example, you may decide to write your articles with Gutenberg only, the native editor of WordPress. This way, no one will be able to activate content creation with the Divi builder page.

2 - The Creator > Advanced sub-tab

Creator Tab - Advanced

From the Creator > Advanced tab, you can enable or disable certain options.

  1. Generation of static CSS files: this option allows you to declare the CSS styles generated by the Divi Builder in a static file. This means that these files will be cached, as do plugins like WP Rocket or WP Super Cache. This option can be used to improve the performance of your Divi site but this will only work if option #3 (declare styles locally) is enabled.
  2. Clear: this is a bad translation of "clear" which means "to clean". In other words, it clears the cache.
  3. Declare styles locally: with previous versions of the Divi Builder, CSS styles of modules were displayed online (inline) in the footer. Enable this option if you want to restore this behavior. Personally, I do not recommend activating this option.
  4. Product tour: this is the virtual tour of the Divi Builder. If you activate it, it will automatically start each time you activate the Divi Builder. If this annoys you, just disable it here.
  5. Enable the latest Divi Builder experience: this allows you to use the latest version of the Visual Builder. If you disable this option, you will find a Divi Builder in Back Office optimized since version 3.18 of Divi. I don't think it's a good idea to disable this option as the new Divi Builder offers many new features.
  6. Enable the classic editor: this option allows you to keep the classic WordPress editor, the one used up to version 4.9.x. This saves you installing the Classic Editor plugin which offers the same functionality. Personally, I do not recommend activating this option.

    L’onglet Post Type Intégration n’apparait pas dans l’onglet Créateur. Du coup, le Builder n’apparait nul part sur mon WordPress. Avez-vous une solution à mon problème ? Merci par avance,

  2. Lycia Diaz

    Bonsoir Margot, c’est bizarre !
    Il faudrait contacter le support je pense mais avant, il faudrait vérifier s’il n’y a pas un conflit avec un autre plugin.

    J’ai créé un Custom post « Photos » à l’aide des pluggin CPT UI et ACF avec un groupe de champs personnalisés (un champ image / un champ legende /un champ date / un champ lieu /etc.) que j’ai bien assigné à mon post « photo ».
    Quand je vais dans les options de thème DIVI et l’onglet créateur, mon Custom post « Photos » n’apparaît pas !!!
    Savez-vous s’il y à un réglage particulier à faire dans CPT UI ou ACF pour que cela résolve mon problème ou avez vous une autre idée ?

  4. Lycia Diaz

    Hello Phil,
    C’est pas normal. Tu devrais pouvoir l’activer car le Divi Builder est supporté sur les CPT depuis 2018. As-tu trouvé d’où ça vient ? Y’a-t-il quelque chose que tu aurais pu oublier lors de la création ? Ou un conflit avec un autre plugin ?

  5. Phil

    Merci pour ta réponse Lycia.
    Non je n’ai pas trouvé le réglage à effectuer. Mon custom post n’apparaît toujours pas.
    Du coup je passe par projet et je créé un projet par photo et mon Custom post ne sert plus à rien. Mais mes champs ACF fonctionnent dans mes projets puisque je les ai assignés aussi aux projets.
    Bref, de la débrouille…
    Merci encore. Mais si tu as une idée un jour, je suis preneur…

  6. Lycia Diaz

    Oui ! La débrouille, y’a que ça de vrai 😉
