Blog Module: Editing

This module pulls in posts from your published posts to a specific location ( Page the module is set up on). If you have multiple categories (News, featured posts etc.) and have them setup separately then each blog module is pulling in a different category associated with that sections posts. 

The only time you would need to edit a blog module is if you are setting a new one up or adding a new category to be pulled in. See above notes on how to add new categories.

1
Go to 'Pages' and select the page to edit
2
Locate the blog module - Open settings. (Need help locating the settings? Read our Divi Builder Basics article)
3
You will see all available categories - Check off the category of posts you want to appear in this location. Save & Update!
