A blog on websites for scholars / research initiatives, WordPress (plugins) & the DIVI theme, and inspirational examples of academic websites that I come across. Occasionally I may also post something of interest to the academic community that is unrelated to web design / development.

DIVI Person Plus Module is a WordPress plugin that adds a versatile module to the DIVI Builder. The module allows you to display people in an informative and attractive manner. The plugin was developed with academic researchers in mind. For example, you can add icons linking to people's profile on Academia, GoogleScholar, Mendeley and ResearchGate.
In this post we look at a specific type of DIVI plugin.
