D. USING DIVI SWITCH

Once you’ve installed Divi Switch correctly, you can head over to the Divi Theme Options Page where you’ll find your new ‘switcher’ ready to use.

Each toggle has a title, short description and a shadowed out switch set by default to "Disabled". If you want to activate the effect, just click on the switch and it’ll toggle to "enabled" and turn blue.

You need to save your changes after enabling or disabling one or more Divi Switch toggles.

E. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Will Divi Switch work with Extra?

No, but there’s an Extra Switch in development so stay tuned.

Can I add my own color schemes to buttons etc?

Yes, We’ve listed the hex values for the six color schemes at the top of the plugin style sheet. You can simply ‘find and replace’ those values using any decent text editor. 

Is this the same as Divi Booster? 

No. Both are great plugins and both do different things. If you’re serious about customizing Divi then we’d suggest owning both.

Will I lose my changes if I uninstall the plugin?

You need the plugin to be active to take advantage of the customizations. Changes are stored within the plugin. However, if you deactivate the plugin or need to reinstall for any reason, your toggle choices will be saved and will activate as soon as the plugin is activated again.


F. KNOWN ISSUES

Conflicting Switches

Some switches try to do the same thing. The App Style Menu & The mobile Menu on the desktop, for example, both try to realign the logo and navigation items. If both are activated then neither will work as expected. There are two side menu toggles but only one should be used. If you notice a switch not behaving as you would expect, look for a switch that may be causing a compatibility issue. 

Heavily customized Divi conflicts

If you’re using Divi Switch on an already heavily customized version of Divi then you may find some switches behaving oddly. Always check how a switch is behaving when activated.
