Divi – Role Editor Module Use

Video Tutorial

Script & Screenshots

In this video I’m going to go through the Divi Role Editor.  The Divi Role Editor gives you control over what each WordPress User Role can do within the Divi Builder.  In this video I’m going to go through the options under Module Use.
To get to this editor, click on Divi on the left sidebar, then Role Editor.
At the top you’ll see all the different roles that you have within WordPress.  I’m going to stay on the Administrator tab.  You’ll also find these same settings on the other three tabs.
Here you’ll see all of the types of modules you can add to your site.  There’s more than 40 different modules.  Everything from adding images, header, maps, menus, code, forms, buttons, and so much more.  In another video I’ll go into more detail of what each module does.  In this one I’m only showing you how to disable access to any of them.
Here is where you’d add any of those modules to your website.  On any post or page, if you click on Insert Module, it will give you the option to select which module you’d like to use.
These are all the modules I have access to add, which is currently all of them.
I’m going to disable the Code module so you can see what happens when one of them is disabled.
Here you can see how the modules show up when you’re enabled to edit them.  You’ll see the edit button on the left side of each module.  I’ll click on the refresh button so I can show you when it’s disabled.
Now you can see the Code module that I disabled no longer has the edit icon, but I still have access to the Text modules.
If I click on Insert Module to add a new one.

You can see the Code module does not appear anymore.  It should be between Circle Counter and Comments.  This prevents the user from adding any of that type of module that has been disabled.

You can go through all of these modules and see if there are any that you don’t want your employees to have access to.  If they don’t know any type of code, you may want to disable those modules.  Or if you know there’s a module that will not need to be updated, you can disable it to keep it protected from any accidental changes.  You can set it to fit the needs of the employee or contractor.

That’s it for this video.  I’ll see you in the next one.
