Divi Shortcodes that Stand TALL
We all use the Divi Theme because of it’s intuitive interface and impressive set of stock modules, but as we are humans, we alway need a little more. Grass is always greener and what not, so sometimes we need to extend that sweet sweet Divi feature set with a plugin or some custom code to nudge it into the features we desire.
Good news, in this installment we will be doing both by using our Divi Mobile plugin and some code to extend some missing functionality in our one and only Divi Theme.

Creating an Injectable Layout
Alright folks, brace yourselves for some real magic. Ever noticed something missing in your Divi Mobile menu? Well, let’s fill that void with something creative and interactive. With Divi’s amazing feature, injectable layouts, we’re going to make your mobile menu not just good, but outstanding.
Injectable layouts are like a secret sauce. You can build a layout in the Divi library and inject it into your Divi Mobile menu. This super cool feature allows you to add elements like a contact form, social icons and much more, letting your menu stand out and make a lasting impression. Let’s see how to do this!
- Publish any pending changes: Before we dive in, make sure to publish any changes you’ve made so far.
- Navigate to the Divi Library: Now, let’s hop back to the backend, the dashboard of your Divi site. We’re going to work in the Divi Library, so go ahead and open it up.
- Create a new layout: If you don’t have any layouts yet, that’s perfectly fine. We’re going to create a brand new layout to inject into our Divi Mobile menu. Simply hit the “Add New” button and give your layout a name. It could be anything you like, the name isn’t consequential to the functionality.
- Choose the layout type: For the layout type, a ‘section’ usually works best when injecting a layout into Divi Mobile. While you could use an entire layout or a row, a section gives you more flexibility.
- Add a row to your layout: After submitting your layout, go ahead and add a row with two columns. This is because we’re planning to put two items in our mobile menu.
- Add a text module to your row: Head back to your layout and in the first column, put a text module. You could add something like ‘My Account’, or any other text that fits your site’s needs.
That’s it! You’re now on your way to creating a standout Divi Mobile menu using injectable layouts. In the next section, we’ll go into more detail about what you can add to your layout to make it even more awesome.
