Remove Divi Builder Button for WP User Role Author

To make things easier for the client hand-off, I removed the Divi builder button from the back-end, using the following code:

Divi Friendly Global Footer

This trick will allow you to create a Divi friendly footer (within the front-end builder) and then via a child theme modification to the footer.php file, have it echo throughout your site.

 

And the code to enter in your footer.php file. Make sure to replace the relevant post # with your own:

Divi Align Module to Bottom

When trying to align content to the bottom of a column, use flex.

  1. Make sure your row has the equalize heights option turned ON.
  2. In the column you wish to align the module to the bottom, add in the custom CSS box:
    display: flex;
    flex-flow: column;
  3. In the module custom CSS box add:
    display: flex;
    flex-direction: column;
    justify-content: center;
    flex-grow: 1;

To align the content to the bottom or top just change the css in step 3 to:
justify-content: flex-start; (for top)
justify-content: flex-end; (for bottom)

Website Copying, Mirroring and Downloading for Offline Browsing

I recently had to copy a static website for a client that no longer had access to their back-end. I used a program called HTTrack Website Copier to download the entire site locally, so that I could then upload it to a new server location. It only comes up once a year or so that I need to “download” a site (without back-end access). For the simple static site I used HTTrack Website Copier on… the software worked nicely!

HTTrack’s home page says the following:

HTTrack is a free (GPL, libre/free software) and easy-to-use offline browser utility.
It allows you to download a World Wide Web site from the Internet to a local directory, building recursively all directories, getting HTML, images, and other files from the server to your computer.
