IMPORTANT: notes on Divi Basic Tools

Global Items

Global items or elements are where an element has been saved to be the same across the entire site.

These are marked as BRIGHT GREEN. They are often found on items where a change would be required to be sitewide such as a phone number.

All items whether they are Sections BLUE, Rows TEAL GREEN and Modules GREY will change to BRIGHT GREEN if saved as GLOBAL elements.

If in doubt, please don’t edit global items. A roll back of the whole site to a previous version will incur a charge.

Greyed Out / Lighter Content

Some items are built in different ways for different devices. If you see a lighter greyed out area this will be designed for tablet and/or phone view.
