    In the pro version is it possible to build the admin page, or one of the other customized pages, with the divi builder?

    @famarast,

    I have requested a developer license for Divi to confirm this, but my gut is telling me that this will not be possible. This is because in WordPress, the Admin Dashboard and Frontend are handled very differently and the Divi Builder Elements are designed around being used on the Frontend of the site.

    Even if we were to force the Theme CSS and Divi’s Shortcodes that the Builder inserts into the Page Content to work within a Client Dash Admin Page, it would likely not look how you would want it to because of the rest of the WordPress Admin Dashboard styling and structure conflicting with it.

    I would recommend instead setting up some type of private page on the Frontend of the website that only a specific User Role can see (Using a Membership plugin or something similar) and then adding a Custom Link to their Client Dash menu to it. That would allow you to build out the page as you’d like using the Divi builder while still placing the link within their Admin Dashboard Menu.

    I’ll update this ticket with my findings regarding using the Divi Builder to make Admin Pages in Client Dash if/when we get a developer license to test with, but like I said, I do not think that approach will work out.

    @famarast,

    We received a test copy of Divi and my assumptions were correct. While it seems that the basic Shortcodes (such as [button]) which come as part of the normal WYSIWYG editor when you have Divi active technically work on Admin Pages in Client Dash, non of the CSS Stying from the Theme loads so it looks no different than normal text and links when viewing the Admin Page. This is due to the Admin Dashboard in WordPress not loading your entire Theme, no matter what Theme it is.

    I do believe in your case, using a Membership plugin to restrict access to a particular Page on the Frontend of the site to a certain User Role and then adding a link to the Page for the Role within Client Dash’s Admin Menu Customizer is your best bet if you want to use the Divi Builder.

    Thank you so much for your detailed answer! I really like the plugin even if I can not use the divi builder, I will also evaluate whether to buy the pro version (maybe at Black Friday if you make discounts 😆)
