Over the years we’ve provided a ton of freebies for your next Divi website. With the release of the Divi Theme Builder Library and Divi Cloud, we’re rounding up some of our freebies into template sets that you can add to your next project. For today’s post, we’ll be focusing on our Blog Post Template freebies. Not sure what a Blog Post Template is? Let’s take a look and find out!
What is a Blog Post Template?
Blog posts are the foundation of WordPress. Before WordPress became the main website builder of the internet, it was a humble blogging platform. With the advent of pages in WordPress 1.5, WordPress began making waves as a content management system. However it has never forgotten its blogging roots. With the Divi Theme Builder, we can create templates for our blog posts. We can even assign different templates to all blog posts in a tag or category. If we wanted to, we could even assign a different template to every single blog post on our website (I wouldn’t recommend it, but you could do it!). Markedly in Divi, we use Blog Post Templates to set a consistent style for our blog posts, whether it be a single post or all the posts on our website.
What is a Template Set?
In the new Divi Theme Builder Library, we can group a number of templates together. This is called a Template Set. As an example, in your current Divi Theme Builder, you may have created a template for your homepage, your blog posts and your product pages. You can add all of these templates to a template set. Then, you can add this Template Set to your Divi Cloud account so that you can access it on another site at a different time.

How to Upload The Blog Post Template Sets
Go to Divi Theme Builder
To upload the template, navigate to the Divi Theme Builder in the backend of your WordPress website.
Upload Template Set
Then, in the top right corner, you’ll see a plus sign icon. Click on the icon. This will open the Template Sets Library.
Once you are in the Template Sets Library, click on the two arrows icon.
Locate your .JSON file from the ZIP folder. Upload it to the library by clicking No File Selected.
Once you have selected your file, it’ll display the name of the file. Next, click the blue Import Theme Builder Library Templates button.
As your Template Set is uploading, you’ll notice a modal pop-up with a progress bar letting you know how your import is doing.
Please Note: Due to the number of post templates and assets within each set, it can take some time for the set to install. Please be patient.
Using Your Template Set
After the Template Set has been added to your library, click on the kebab menu on the library item.
In the menu that pops up, select Use This Set. This will begin the process to add the templates within your new Template Set to your Divi Theme Builder.
An Import Templates modal box will appear. Because this template set has multiple Blog Post Templates within, we’ll uncheck the Override Existing Assignments checkbox. Remember as you’re working on your site, to set the templates to your chosen page, post, product, etc. assignment in the Divi Theme Builder. Next, click on the Import Divi Builder Templates button in blue.
Please Note: Due to the number of post templates and assets within each set, it can take some time for the set to install. Please be patient. Also, template thumbnails do take some time to generate.
Once your Template Set has been installed, you’ll notice that all the Blog Post Template titles are in red. This is because as they stand, they have not been assigned to a page, post, product, etc. Don’t forget to assign them once you have carried out your changes. Press the green Save Changes button to save your new template set in the Divi Theme Builder.
