Updates, Changes, & Optimizations

  • Reduced the amount of history states created when adjusting section and row padding using the draggable padding interface in the Visual Builder.
  • Updated TinyMCE to the latest version for use in the Visual Builder.


  • Animations at the very bottom of the page, which were sometimes left un-triggered, will now trigger correctly when reaching the bottom of the page.
  • Back-ported sanitize_textarea_field() function that was introduced in WordPress 4.7 due to compatibility issues with customers that have not upgraded WordPress.
  • Blog and portfolio module pagination will now be handled via Ajax. This allows multiple blog and portfolio modules to exist on the same page and for navigation of individual modules to not disrupt the pagination of other modules on the page.
  • Custom colors will now be correctly applied to all meta information in the testimonial module.
  • De-queued the CSS file from the ActiveCampaign plugin, which was mistakenly enqueued on all wp-admin pages and caused conflicts with the Divi Theme Options interface.
  • Drastically decreased the amount of CSS used when enabled custom button styles for modules.
  • Duplicated check boxes in the contact form module will now be updated to have unique IDs to avoid errors when using the form on the front end.
  • Error messages will now be correctly displayed when failing to log in as a WooCommerce customer.
  • Number counters will now fade in, along with the title, instead of appearing instantly next to an orphaned title.
  • Removed the unwanted Additional CSS group in the Module Customizer.
  • Simplified the Visual Builder’s Simplified _shortcode_obj modification system.
  • Slashes will no longer be stripped from custom code added to the Divi Theme Options, which was causing some code to become malformed.
  • Stripped icons from the blog module post excerpt to remove unwanted icon characters from the text preview.
  • The zoom in and out keyboard shortcuts for the Visual Builder will now work correctly when using Num Pad.
  • Waypoints will now trigger circle counters correctly after being duplicated in the Visual Builder.
