Step 3: Customize Your Layout

After you’ve uploaded the layout in the website, you can easily customize as per your choice. You can easily do that using the visual layout.
It’s important to mention that you are not obliged to use all sections. You can simply delete any module that you don’t need for example if you don’t have any testimonials there’s no point having a fake testimonial section. Similarly, you can also add any module that you will need.
For example, if you think your page should have a frequently asked question section, make one. In summary, the layouts are just there to help you speed up the process and act as a guide.
Another thing is that you can easily switch to any other Divi layout at any point of time.
