Editing Page Content

Video Tutorial

The website pages were built using Divi Builder. While this tool does make the website building process a lot easier, there is still the potential to mess something up while using it

You are welcome to contact us with any page edits (1-hour of edits is included each month), but if you would like to edit yourself, please follow these instructions:
.

  • From the website dashboard, select “Pages” on the left side menu
  • Hover over the page you would like to edit and select “Edit with Divi” (It’s important to select “Edit with Divi” and not “Edit”)
  • This will open up the visual editor. You can click on any element on the page and then select the black settings icon to edit it
  • If you make a mistake, select the 3 purple dots on the bottom of the screen, select the clock icon, then select the undo icon
  • After making any changes, select “Save” on the bottom right, then select “Exit Visual Builder” at the top center of the screen
