Requirements

 

To be able to use this plugin on your WordPress website, you must either be using the DIVI Builder plugin, or the DIVI Theme.

Installing the Plugin

  1. In the WordPress dashboard, go to Plugins > Add New
  2. Click Upload Plugin
  3. Select the zipped file from your computer
  4. Click Install Now
  5. When you see “Plugin installed successfully”, click Activate Plugin.
You can now find the DIVI Person Plus module in the list of available DIVI modules, and you can add it to your page in the same way as you would add any other DIVI module.

If you are completely or somewhat new to DIVI, you may want to check out their tutorial ‘Getting Started with the DIVI Builder‘.

Plugin Introduction

 

In the video below we go over the content and design options that are available in the plugin:

  • 1:14 – Content Options
  • 7:23 – Design Options
  • 9:41 – Column Options

Note that the column options got extended with version 1.3.0, the video still needs to be updated.

Getting Started

In the video below we will show you how to implement the module on your site using the following scenario:

  1. You have a page where you want to display all team members
  2. You have project pages where you want to show just the team members working on that project

We will assume that you want to implement this in such a way that:

  1. One design is automatically applied to all team members, and later changes in that module design will be automatically applied to all team members wherever they are on your site. To achieve this, we will make use of the DIVI feature of default presets.
  2. You can display one team member on multiple places on the site, and later changes in that person’s data – for example, the addition of a new social media link – will automatically be applied where that person appears on your site. To achieve this, we will make use of the DIVI feature of global modules.

Instead of watching the video, you can also read a blog post with the steps illustrated by screenshots.
