If you’re using the Divi builder in your WordPress site, you will probably find the Divi makeover. When you’re not in the new appearance, the great news is that you can always use the old block gui you’ve become familiar with. This blog entry will tell you where to get back to what’s called the “Classic Divi Editor”.
Sign in to the admin section of the Divi based WordPress site, then
- Press the DIVI button in the left corner of your WordPress admin area
- Press the BUILDER menu on the Divi Theme settings option
- Select the ADVANCED section (just below BUILDER menu bar)
- Make sure that the New DIVI BUILDER EXPERIENCE ENABLE option is DISABLED. If required, press the Activated button to deactivate this option.
If you’ve upgraded to WordPress 5.x, you’ll also need to ENABLE the CLASSIC EDITOR. If you’re still on version of WordPress 4.x, this is what we’re suggesting at the time of posting, this feature would not be accessible to you or required.
This is what it takes. You’ll also note some modified looks for the Divi Builder, which I like. In general, you would note that now the layout display looks less “blocky” and a little smaller, making it much easier to move to the area you would like to edit.
