The Layout tab of the Divi theme options is used to define layout styles in general and more precisely for the articles and pages of your site.
The "layout" is a term that means "layout", i.e. "layout". The layout of an article or page is the visual presentation, the packaging, the design.
This tab is divided into 3 sub-tabs. Here is the program of this article:

1 - Layout tab > Article template
- Info" section of the articles: you can choose the elements that will appear in the "info" section of each article. This is the area, usually under the title of the article, where general information is displayed. This is often referred to as" metas "of the article. Simply click on Author / Date / Categories / Comments to activate them or click a second time to deactivate them. By activating them, they will no longer be visible.
- Comments in articles: If you want your readers to interact with you, it is best to enable the comment feature. This option exists natively in the WordPress settings as well, in the Settings > Discussion tab.
- Article thumbnails: "thumbnails in articles" are the "featured images"or "the front-page images". If you disable this option, the image will not appear at the top of the article but your "headline image" will still be used when sharing your articles on social networks. For example, on the articles in Divi Tips, I deliberately decided not to make the "headlines" appear. If you use great photos as a "front page image", it may be interesting to show them. If you wish to add several images to the front page, you can follow this tutorialif you wish to change the size of the images to the front page, follow this one.
2 - Layout tab > Page template
- Thumbnail in pages: just like the articles, you can decide whether or not to display the "headline images" of your pages at the top of your content. If you disable this option, your pages will not display your featured images.
- Comments in pages: this is a general option that allows you to not accept comments on your pages. If you want to enable comments on some of your pages only, it is better to go through the WordPress menu: Pages > All pages > Hover your pages with the mouse > click on Quick Edit > choose whether or not to enable comments (see video below).
3 - Layout > General settings
- Article info section: this option strangely resembles the same option proposed in the "article template" tab, yet there is a subtle difference. Here, you can decide which metas to display on the blog page and not on the article itself. The blog page is the one that lists all your articles. Here, Divi displays the author's name, publication date, etc. of each article (just under the thumbnail of each article). If you want some information not to be visible, just click to disable it.
- Thumbnails in indexes: you can enable or disable the display of thumbnails, i. e. "Featured Image" of your articles on index pages, such as the blog page.
