If you haven’t logged in yet have a look at these guides first:
Editing a page from the Toolbar
Once you have logged in you can go to the frontend of your website, you will notice a blue arrow in the bottom right corner of your site. Hover the mouse over this and click to show the toolbar, you can click ‘Edit page’. If you are on a Mac hold down ‘cmd’ while clicking ‘Edit page’ to open the page editor in a new tab. On a computer hold down ‘ctrl’.
Ensure you are on the page you want to edit before clicking the edit page button on the toolbar. You can see how to enable the admin toolbar here.
Editing a page from the Dashboard
You don’t need to use the toolbar to open the page editor, you can also access the pages from the dashboard of your site. Once logged in you will see your dashboard. Open the main menu by clicking the menu icon in the top left hand of the screen, from the menu click pages and then ‘All Pages’.
On the list of pages, we will be selecting the frontpage in this example. Just click the page name to open the editor.
Divi Page Builder
Following both methods above will bring you to the page builder for the frontpage of the starter site. Below we can see the page builder structure.
Changing content using the Divi Builder
Using the above frontend and backend as a reference we can see what page builder modules reflect each area on the frontend of the site. In this guide will be changing the cover image and welcome text.
Once on the slide content, you can change the texts and images. There are hundreds of additional options but we will focus on just the content in this guide.
After changing the content you can click save and on the module settings click the ‘Eye’ icon to preview your changes. You can also save settings and click ‘Preview’ below ‘Update’ to see the preview of the entire page before publishing the live changes.
