How To Add A Gallery Module To Your Page

Before you can add a gallery module to your page, you will first need to jump into the Divi Builder. Once the Divi Theme has been installed on your website, you will notice a Use Divi Builder button above the post editor every time you are building a new page. Clicking this button will enable the Divi Builder, giving you access to all of the Divi Builder’s modules. Next, click the Use Visual Builder button to launch the builder in Visual Mode. You can also click the Use Visual Builder button when browsing your website on the front end if you are logged in to your WordPress Dashboard.

Once you have entered the Visual Builder, you can click the grey plus button to add a new module to your page. New modules can only be added inside of Rows. If you are starting a new page, don’t forget to add a row to your page first. We have some great tutorials about how to use Divi’s row and section elements.

Locate the gallery module within the list of modules and click it to add it to your page. The module list is searchable, which means you can also type the word “gallery” and then click enter to automatically find and add the gallery module! Once the module has been added, you will be greeted with the module’s list of options. These options are separated into three main groups: ContentDesign and Advanced.

Gallery Content Options

Within the content tab you will find all of the module’s content elements, such as text, images and icons. Anything that controls what appears in your module will always be found within this tab.

Gallery Images

Click the Update Gallery button to launch the WordPress media library where you can choose which images you would like to display in your gallery.

Images Number

Define the number of images that should be displayed per page. When more images than are allowed on each page are included in your gallery, pagination will appear below the images.

Show Title and Caption:

If an image title or caption has been added, they will appear below the image in the gallery. If you would like to disable these text elements then you can do so using this option.

Show Pagination

When more images than are allowed on each page are included in your gallery, pagination will appear below the images. If you would like to remove pagination, you can disable this setting.

Gallery Design Options
