One of the best features of the Extra Theme, and one that even Divi doesn’t have, is the ability to use the Divi Builder on category pages. This allows you to turn your category pages from plain lists of posts into attractive, useful and high-converting pages.
However, when you try to edit a category using the Divi Builder, you’ll notice that something is missing – most of the modules normally available to you in Divi! There’s no sliders, there’s no accordions, there’s no email optin forms, and so on… This makes creating your perfect category page difficult.
Fortunately there is now an answer. Divi Space have just released the Extra Module Mate plugin which solves this by making all the standard Divi Modules available to you in the category builder, like so:
All of the modules shown in orange are enabled when you install Extra Module Mate. This obviously makes it much easier to lay out the category page the way you want.
Note: the Extra Module Mate plugin should not be confused with my own free plugin, Divi Module Mate. While Extra Module Mate makes the standard Divi modules available on Extra’s category layouts, Divi Module Mate lets you easily find new modules created for Divi and Extra by third-party developers.
Thanks for the tips/tricks man. I was trying to figure some things out forever, just recently stumbled onto your site by total accident. Was able to fix some things on a few sites I’ve been trying to fix and figure out forever. Now, I have been trying figure out/ add a way to have the modules available int he layouts. like you described here. but the link is broken. do you know of the exact link? i tried looking for it on that site, cant seem to find it. thanks
Hey Michael, I’ve just corrected the links in the post. Divi Space was recently bought by Aspen Grove and Extra Module Mate is now being sold through Aspen Grove’s site instead. Here’s the full link if you need it:
Does this work for the fullwidth modules too?
Great site! It has helped a lot already. Planning on getting this through your link, just need to make sure the fullwidth modules are available in the Extra Module Mate.
I believe the answer to this is actually no. The reason for this is that the Extra doesn’t actually support fullwidth sections on the category layouts, so there’s nowhere for Extra Module Mate to add the fullwidth modules.
I hope you’re still able to achieve the layout / look you want, but let me know if there is anything I might be able to help with. Thanks!
