  1. Hi Ferdy, I am new with Divi. Your tutorial about it is the best! However I have some trouble to follow your indication to create a filterable portfolio. Do you have any child theme as an example. Maybe if you can leave something similar like what you did in your tutorial. I will appreciate any kind of additional support. Best regards!

    1. Ferdy Korpershoek

      Hi Claudio, thank you! I have no child theme. I don’t use child themes. Where do you get stuck?

  4. Your Divi tutorial is great but I always get stuck when adjusting the content in tablet/phone view. Some of my modules are faded and I don’t know why. Do you have a video that is specific to tablet/phone view that addresses all potential issues for viewing?

  5. Hi!
    Your Divi tutorial is the best!
    I’m stuck with something tho. I can’t install Let’s encrypt from Siteground. There’s something i’m missing out…
    So I go to my account and click to the cPanel, look for Let’s encrypt but when i’m at the ‘Manage Let’s Encrypt Certificates’ page, it doesn’t give me any option to install.
    Do you know why is that happening?

    1. Ferdy Korpershoek

      Hi Martha, and if you go the lower part of the page you can install a new certificate. Did you try to create a certificate there?

      1. Nope…it doesnt appear that option. I tried to send a screen shot but I don’t know how to ad it on that message.
        It’s just showing me the top part where it says domain, type (get wildcard), status and action. There’s nothing underneath.

  6. Hi Ferdy,
    I need to add google recaptcha to my divi site. I am getting a lot of spam. I was hoping not to pay for a plugin.
    Can I do this without a plugin?

  7. Hi Ferdy,
    How do I make a frame around the Login button and how do I make a long navigation bar with the home, service, etc… on the one side and Login and Sign In on the other side?

  11. hi Ferdy,

    could you help me? I filled in the phone number and email address in the divi customizer, and use the social icons too. How can I fixe this default top header on the right side? Do you know a CSS code for this?


    1. Ferdy Korpershoek

      Hi Adam, I don’t know how to do that. Buy there is an amazing support area for Divi users. You can submit a ticket at Divi.

  12. Hi Ferdy!

    You really made a nice tutorial. Where can I found the demo files right now? You changed your menu since then…

    Thankfully, Mika

  14. Hi Ferdy,
    You mentioned in your main Divi tutorial that you have other tutorials that focus on the Divi email component and as well as one for all the Divi modules. I can’t seem to find these videos on this site or on YouTube. Can you let me know where I can find them?

  16. Hallo Ferdy, ik zag je bij je verhaal voor de Benelux Business Club Scandinavia in Kopenhagen. Fantastiese DIVI tutorial! Waar ligt de beschrijving met de tijdkodes? Ik ben geheel nieuw met DIVI.
    Heb jij er voordeel bij als ik het DIVI tema via jou website koop met 10% korting?

  19. Hi Ferdy, Thanks for share such informative videos , i have never ever found such comprehensive video tutorial on you tube for Divi. through this tutorial i download the header and footer json file from the link above but it seems not workable perhaps this is only for apple user only because when i try to import ._Divi Builder Layouts in divi libaray it gives an error “This file should not be imported in this context” .
    would appreciate it if you could provide for windows user as well.

    Thanks and regards,

  20. Great tutorial.

  22. Hello!
    I created a website with astra theme and elementos. If I want to use divi now, will I loose all the information on my website?

    Thank You for all your videos!

  23. hi Ferdy

    Thanks for all you do! I’ve learned a lot from you.

    I’ve a question regarding one of the CSS – Different logo on fixed header

    This one works fine on Google Chrome but fails to switch back in Firefox and the Microsoft browser.

    Do you have anything specific for them?

    Thanks in advance!

  24. Hello Ferdy Korpershoek 🙂
    I’m from Portugal. My English belongs to the old school, what means is not the best, so I’m sorry for the mistakes I might make.
    I’ve been your follower on youtube for some time. I have learned a lot from your videos. Today I decided to come here to thank you.
    A hug and a special kiss for your beautiful son.

  25. Hi Ferdy,

    Your DIVI course is great! Learned how to use the framework in no time 🙂
    One question: I installed your global footer, but the social icons weren’t there. How can I add them?

  26. Hi Ferdy,

    Ik gebruik Divi en wil ook een full width header. Dat is gelukt, maar ik wil de header minder hoog. Nu vult hij het hele scherm en zie je de tekst daaronder niet.
    Ik zie nergens een mogelijkheid de hoogte van de FW header bij te stellen (minder hoog te maken).
    Graag hulp en alvast bedankt!

    Hi Ferdy,
    I have taken many of your courses on Udemy and YouTube! Thanks for all the great information! I signed up for SiteGround and am currently using Divi Builder. Both great recommendations!
    I wanted to know if you have a tutorial for Divi and WooCommerce? I know you have one for Elementor. Right now I have a site already built using Divi, I just need to be able to setup ecommerce, i.e. Shop, Cart, Checkout, etc. within the Divi website.

  28. Looking for someone with your talent level to build me a 3 or 4-page pet blog site. I’ve got Divi installed but it’s a little more complicated than I thought it would be. Any thoughts on a possible candidate.


    Am a student and also a wed developer i do write code from scratch before but with this tutorial i dont really need to start writing code from scrach again bcos this just the easier and fastest way to make a site


  30. Hey Freddy,

    In welke video leg je juist uit hoe je een pagina 404 ‘page not found’ maakt in Divi? Ik dacht dat ik dit ergens had zien passeren, maar weet niet meer juist waar!

    Alvast bedankt!

  31. I was looking into purchasing Divi. Your tutorial is the best tutorial I have seen and now I am convince to purchase it. Thanks a lot for such a great information!.

  32. Hi Ferdy,

    Hope you are well!

    I am a complete newbie in web designing. I have started watching your tutorial on Youtube (4hr one!) and am middle of it and have been replicating my WordPress the way you are going in the video. It’s an amazing lesson I must say.

    However, a query; might be a ridiculous one. However, say I become a freelancer in WordPress web developer one day and I have a Divi lifetime license. And I work on Upwork/Frelanceing website and I take a WordPress web designing project from a client. Then I start working with the client-purchased domain and I install WordPress there and start building with Divi. Now, my question is- after I finish the website or while delivering the final product to my client, what will happen to the API Keys that I used while building the web? I mean won’t the client see the keys or able to modify them later as per his/her wish? Or can I just uninstall Divi bulders during delivery and nothing is impacted?

  33. Hi Ferdy,

    My name is Widjai and watch always your tutorials about Divi, wich are great and very educational. Thanks a lot.

    But I also want some advice about plug-ins for my dutch websites:
    – reviews plug-in
    – appointment booking plug-in

    I get confused which one to use for my website (s). Could you please advise?



  34. Hi Ferdi, great tutorials.

    I am going through your latest Divi website tutorial but have an issue I can’t fix.
    When I duplicate the section for mobile, change the visibility to only show on mobile, etc. (around 1hr 55min mark in this video –, I get a problem.

    The divider I had for the desktop section doesn’t show up anymore, even though it is still there in the settings. I have tried the Z- index trick with no luck, it has just visually disappeared.

    Can you please help?

  35. Hello our talent and hero Fredy you are doing GREAT AMAZING work, we leave every thing and start feed our starving from your great web site and platforms.
    Thanks a lot, Keep it up, Don’t give up the fire
    My question (for divi and elementor) Are them support Right to left langues (Arabic) ?

  36. The question of the day is ‘ how do I list my posts in alphabetical order” I have the page organized and it is showing me the category posts I want but I can’t change the order of how they are stored, meaning that they are simply sorted like all post from newest to oldest. I know that Testimonial posts in full width can be showed in random order but a 3 column posts just go back to default. What am I missing?

  37. This is absolutely the most detailed and informative tutorial I have seen on youtube, or anywhere else, on any subject. Sometimes I have to slow it down to catch the detail being presented. I also watched the Blog, Profile, and Contact form tutorials. Thank you for being a great resource.

  38. Hello Ferdy, from your templates, I can only see HeaderFooter.json and I have not been able to upload it on. There is no header.json. Please how do i use the headerfooter.json? I went to the theme builder to build the custom header from scratch but it is not uploading the HeaderFooter.json. I tried adding it via divi library but to no avail as well. Please help.

  39. Hi Ferdy, I love you amazing Tutorials on Divi.
    You have converted me to stop using WIX for my clients and from now on I will be using WordPress Divi.
    Can you please do a tutorial on One Page Website For One Product with Divi and the best plugins to use for shopping cart, and shipping. (if in Australia)
    I know you like WooCommerce, but something that be all done through WordPress Divi, that doesn’t require to shall out even more money on another yearly services like WooCommerce, if possible.

  40. Hi FerdyKorp

    Thanks for the wonderful job you’re doing!

    Do you have a tutorial for slider in divi? If you do, kindly share the link

    Kind regards,

  41. Love your tutorials! Can you point me to instructions on how to use a YouTube video for a full page background WITHOUT the YouTube video title, etc. Elementor seems to be able to do this, but I can’t figure it out in Divi. I can get rid of the controls, sound…everything but the video title in Divi.

  42. wow, great tutorials.!
    a few questions:
    can you edit the database backend by adding a column/foreign key from another table?
    also, database: mySQL/postgreSQL or mongoDB or something similar?
    also, how do you do a global fixed footer?
    can you integrate CSS frameworks like bootstrap or tailwind for styling?
    can divi do things like set up a style switcher from the backend for the frontend using cards and checkboxes?
    ok, cheers.

  43. Hi Ferdy,

    Thank you very much for your great Divi-tutorials. I am a noob in making websites and it has helped me a lot to build our website with Divi up to where it is now.
    I have one challange at the moment, where I hope you can help me with. Some of the links in the footer of our website don’t work/direct to a page. How can I fix this? What am I doing wrong?


  44. Hi Ferdy, thanks so much for your Divi tutorials! I’m learning a lot! I am working on the Advantage one but I seem to be missing pictures that you are using from the images tutorial ‘how to make a website 2022’. Missing the Bebe, Keri lotion, etc also background stroke and circle. I believe there is more missing but can’t read it off your video!
    I did your create a portfolio video thinking that it would be the portfolio of the cosmetics but it was the wedding. I’m new so getting confused as the cosmetic one looks different and then you duplicate it and add more etc. Hard to follow or am I totally missing something?! Which could be the case!
    Looking forward to finishing you’re other tutorials! Thanks for your help!

  45. Hello Ferdy,

    Fantastic content. Thank you so much. I currently have a website that is managed. I would like to follow your steps to create an updated website and drop my managed service.

    I would like to first create the website, and then when I am happy with and tested it would then redirect my domain to this new website. What is the best process to accomplish this without losing the back links and domain authority I have established with my existing domain?

    Thanks in advance
