Before using the Gutenberg blocks in Divi, you need to create a Template with PostX. Let’s see how to do that.
Move to the Saved Template section from PostX. And you will see all the previously created (if you have) templates and also the “Add New Template” button. For first-time users, we will show you how to create a new saved template.
Click the “Add New Template” button to see the Gutenberg editor, where you can easily create a template. You can use default Gutenberg blocks, PostX blocks, or Premade Templates/Starter Packs by PostX (Made with Gutenberg Blocks).
We will use the Premade Starter Packs and Templates from PostX to make things easy for the users. Click the “Template Kits” button from the top of the page.
You will see all the Premade Templates/Starter Packs made by PostX here. Choose your desired one and click “Import.” We have used Magazine Layout 6 for example.
Don’t forget to Give the Template a “Name,” as this name will be displayed inside the Divi builder.
Once you’re done with creating your Template, click “Publish.” And you are ready to use Gutenberg blocks in Divi.
Step 4: Use PostX Template in Divi Builder
We have already created a Saved Template in the last step, and all that’s left now is to use it in the Divi builder.
From the WordPress Dashboard, go to Pages and click “Add New Page.”
Once in the page editor, you will see a pop-up from Divi to “Use Divi Builder.” Click on it, and it will redirect you to Divi Builder.
In the Divi builder, click “Start Building.” And it will let you select how many rows you want to add.
Select a “single row,” and Divi will let you select a module.
Search “PostX Template” in the search bar, and Click on it. And it lets you choose the saved Template you made with PostX.
Now, from “Select Your Template,” choose the Template you want to use in Divi, and Click the “Save Changes” button (the button with a green tick mark).
