Divi's options: the Creator tab

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

How do I set the options in the Creator tab of the Divi Theme options? What are they for? How do I make the right choices?

Even though one of the recent Divi theme updates incorporated new, more appropriate translations, it's still a bit unclear at times.

To obtain Divi in "good French", you can read this article.

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

That's what we'll see in this article. Here is the program:

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

1 - The " Creator > Post Type Integration" sub-tab

Post type integration" tab

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

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

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

By default, these are all enabled.

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

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

2 - The Creator > Advancedsub-tab

Onglet Créateur - Avancé
Creator Tab - Advanced

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

  1. Static CSS file generation: 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, like plugins like WP Rocket or WP Super Cache. This option can 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". In other words, it clears the cache.
  3. Declare styles locally: In previous versions of the Divi Builder, the CSS styles of modules were displayedinline in the footer. Enable this option if you want to restore this behavior. Personally, I don't advise to activate this option.
  4. Product tour: this is the virtual tour of the Divi Builder. If you enable it, it will automatically start every 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 Divi 3.18. I don't think it's a good idea to disable this option as the new Divi Builder offers many new features.
  6. Enable Classic Editor: This option allows you to keep the classic WordPress editor, the one that was used until version 4.9.x. This saves you from installing the Classic Editor plugin, which offers the same functionality. Personally, I don't recommend enabling this option.

    Bonjour,
    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,
    Margot

    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.

    Bonjour,
    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 😉
