Asset 265

Generate A Divi Child Theme

A Divi child theme is a great way to customize your website without editing the parent Divi Theme files or worrying about updates. A child theme inherits all the functionality and styling of the parent, but enables you to add your own custom code like PHP, CSS, and JavaScript to modify your website without directly affecting the parent theme. This feature allows you to generate a child theme based on your own details and activate it on the current site.

Export Active Child Theme

Want to install your active child theme on your next Divi site? This tool allows you to export the currently active child theme, such as your Divi Assistant Child Theme generated below, and download it to your computer. This will include any code customizations you have added to the child theme, and allow you to quickly install it using the standard theme installation process from Appearance>Themes>Add New>Upload Theme on your next site.

Clear Divi Cache

These Maintenance Helper features are all related to Divi cache.
Automatically Clear The Divi Static CSS File Generation Cache Based On A Schedule Setting In Divi Assistant Plugin

Automatically Clear The Divi Static CSS Cache Based On A Schedule

Divi has a feature that takes the custom design styles created using the Divi Builder and compiles and minifies them into static CSS files in order to serve them more efficiently as cached files within your visitor’s browser. However, whenever you make a change to your website design, these cached files need to be cleared so that visitors see the updated design. To do this, you can go to your WordPress dashboard to Divi>Theme Options>Builder>Advanced and clear the Static CSS Generation button. But this is a hassle and major inconvenience, so instead we have created this convenient feature which provides options to automatically clear the Divi static CSS cache on a predefined schedule.

Automatically Clear the Divi Static CSS Cache Based on An action

Divi has a feature that takes the custom design styles created using the Divi Builder and compiles and minifies them into static CSS files in order to serve them more efficiently as cached files within your visitor’s browser. However, whenever you make a change to your website design, these cached files need to be cleared so that visitors see the updated design. To do this, you can go to your WordPress dashboard to Divi>Theme Options>Builder>Advanced and clear the Static CSS Generation button. But this is a hassle and major inconvenience, so instead we have solved this by adding triggers based on common scenarios that require clearing the cache which you can enable below to automatically clear the Divi static CSS cache based on the selection action.

Add Button To Clear Static CSS To Admin Bar

Divi has a feature that takes the custom design styles created using the Divi Builder and compiles and minifies them into static CSS files in order to serve them more efficiently as cached files within your visitor’s browser. However, whenever you make a change to your website design, these cached files need to be cleared so that visitors see the updated design. To do this, you can go to your WordPress dashboard to Divi>Theme Options>Builder>Advanced and clear the Static CSS Generation button. But since this cache needs cleared every time you make a change, why it is so difficult to find? Why not move the button to a more convenient location so you can clear it easier? Now you can! Enabling this setting will add new buttons to the WordPress admin bar to clear the Divi static CSS cache quickly with one convenient click!

Add Button To Clear Local Storage to Admin Bar Setting In Divi Assistant Plugin

Add Button To Clear Local Storage To Admin Bar

Local storage is an internal memory storage used by your website to store objects locally in your computer browser. Local storage only affects you since it is associated with your browser sessions, and does not affect other users. This data does not expire and remains stored on your computer until the application that put it there deletes it, or when you manually clear it. Various plugins may utilize this local storage feature, but Divi specifically uses this for things like copy and paste modules, copy and paste styles, and for displaying and managing modules and Divi Builder settings. Clearing the local storage should be a maintenance step you perform every time you clear update Divi or any 3rd party Divi plugin, and also when clearing your browser and other cache. This can potentially solve some issues faced when using Divi. Enabling this feature will add a new button to the WordPress admin bar to clear the local storage.

Add Button To Hard Refresh Browser To Admin Bar Setting In Divi Assistant Plugin

Add Button To Hard Refresh Browser To Admin Bar

When building your website, sometimes you may face issues in the Divi Builder or frontend with outdated or broken content, design, or functionality. In some situations these issues are caused by browser cache, which needs to be cleared often when building a website. But a regular page refresh does not clear the cache, but rather uses cached files to improve the loading performance. Instead, you need to do a hard refresh, which sends a request to the server asking for fresh copies of its resources. The server then responds by providing the latest version, potentially including changes made since the previous cached versions were stored. Enabling this setting will add new buttons to the WordPress admin bar (after reloading the page) to perform a hard browser refresh on the page to ensure you receive and are viewing the most recent version of all resources!

View Divi Changelog

This Maintenance Helper feature is related to viewing a simplified Divi changelog.

View An Easy-To-Read Divi Changelog

On this page, you can view any version of the Divi Theme changelog in a simplified format! A changelog is a list of new features, settings, and bug fixes that are included when software is updated. It is a great idea to keep up to date on new features and fixes that Elegant Themes releases for their Divi Theme.

Asset 257

Asset 282

Updates

These Maintenance Helper features are all related to WordPress updates.
Disable & Hide Automatic Theme Updates Setting In Divi Assistant Plugin

Disable & Hide Automatic Theme Updates

Divi Theme updates are usually great and helpful with new features, fixes, and improvements, but they can also cause unwanted issues. This is why you should never have automatic theme updates enabled. It is always best to test theme updates on a staging site, and always have backups in case something goes wrong. Enabling this setting will disable the theme automatic update feature and completely hide it, which means you will need to manually click update whenever Elegant Themes releases new Divi updates.

Disable & Hide Automatic Plugin Updates Setting In Divi Assistant Plugin

Disable & Hide Automatic Plugin Updates

Plugin updates are usually great and helpful with new features, fixes, and improvements, but they can also cause unwanted issues. This is why you should never have automatic plugin updates enabled. It is always best to test plugin updates on a staging site, and always have backups in case something goes wrong. Enabling this setting will disable the plugin automatic update feature in WordPress and completely hide it, which means you will need to manually click update whenever plugin developers release new updates.

Disable New Default WordPress Themes Setting In Divi Assistant Plugin

Disable New Default WordPress Themes

Each year WordPress released their own default theme. Since you are using the Divi Theme, you can ignore it. However, for some unknown reason, WordPress automatically installs the new default theme on every website automatically! This is obviously very annoying, and it requires you to manually delete it each year. To stop this madness, you can enable this setting to prevent WordPress from installing the new default theme each year!

Utility Helper

The Divi Utility Helper features in Divi Assistant provide a huge list of helpful settings and tools that everyone needs to make their life easier when working with Divi and WordPress like clearing cache, convenient quick links, and so much more!

Asset 278

Admin Bar

These Utility Helper features are all related to the WordPress admin bar.
Add Divi Quick Links To Admin Bar Setting In Divi Assistant Plugin

Add Divi Quick Links To Admin Bar

The settings for the Divi theme are located under the Divi submenu in the WordPress dashboard sidebar menu. Often it would be nice to jump directly to the Theme Options to adjust a setting, quickly access the Theme Builder templates, or update a layout in the Divi Library. But these links are not very conveniently located, and from the frontend it requires several extra clicks to access them. Enabling this setting will add the Divi menu items to the WordPress admin bar so they can be easily accessed from anywhere.

Asset 274

Build Your Own Quick Links Menu

Enabling this setting will allow you to build custom menu items and add them to the WordPress admin bar at the top of your site so they can be easily accessed from anywhere. Each menu item has a label field, URL field, and link target dropdown. You can rearrange and indent the menu items as needed using the up, down, left, and right arrows as you build the menu structure.
Show Theme Builder Template Details In Admin Bar Setting In Divi Assistant Plugin

Show Theme Builder Template Details In Admin Bar

When viewing the frontend of your site or while working in the Divi Visual Builder, there is no way to know if the page or post is using a Divi Theme builder template, and if so, which one or any other details about it. This can be quite frustrating, as this can be very important to know while viewing or working on the site. We have resolved this issue with a very exciting feature! Enabling this setting will automatically show the details about the current Divi Theme Builder template in the WordPress admin bar at the top.

Show Environment Badge In Admin Bar Settings Popup Setting In Divi Assistant Plugin

Show Environment Badge In Admin Bar

When working in WordPress, you may have different environments for one site such as production (live), staging or development. Each of these environments are for different purposes, but they look exactly the same! This can lead to accidental changes and errors on the wrong site, which can have crucial impacts. To help solve this problem, this setting provides a visual reminder that is always visible in the WordPress admin bar to offer website administrators the visual reminder of where exactly they are working. This simple feature reduces the risk of errors and enhancing workflow efficiency, especially when managing multiple sites or collaborating with a team. Enabling this setting will add a new badge with colored dot and text in the top right side of the WordPress admin bar to indicate the current WordPress environment. Each badge will appear automatically based on the current environment. You can adjust the name and color for each environment with the provided settings.

Override The Default Environment

Some hosting providers do not properly set the WordPress environment in the wp-config.php file. This means our setting cannot provide the badge indicator, since the source code is not available. In this situation, you may choose an option from this dropdown setting to manually set the environment. Just keep in mind if you migrate the site or move environments, you would need to update this setting accordingly.

Remove “Howdy” From Before User Name In Admin Bar Setting In Divi Assistant Plugin

Remove “Howdy” From Before user Name In Admin Bar

WordPress includes the greeting “Howdy” by default before the logged-in user’s name in the right side of the admin bar at the top of your site. However, some users may not like this, especially for clients. Enabling this setting will remove the word “Howdy” from before the user name for all users in the WordPress admin bar.
