Page Builder Everywhere brings the extraordinary power of the Divi Builder to new and exciting places. No longer is it only supported on posts, pages, and certain custom post types: wherever text goes, Divi goes!
Page Builder Everywhere lets you use any design you save to the Divi library, in areas that were previously not reachable or editable without significant code changes. New custom-built headers, footers, and sidebars are just the start!
Page Builder Everywhere’s unique widget powered user interface makes using Divi Layouts in new places a breeze: Choose the design you want, choose where you want it to go and you’re done! It really is that simple.
As well as support for the Divi Builder in non-editable areas, Page Builder Everywhere also empowers you to use Divi Layouts anywhere that supports text, including within WordPress, third-party plugins, and even other Divi Modules!
