Divi Disable Premade Layouts

Free

Divi - Disable Premade Layouts Product Image

**********Fully Compatible with Classic Builder**********

Use it for free on an unlimited number of sites.

The new functions for the predefined layouts of Elegant Themes are great, there is no doubt about it. However, they cannot be deactivated for certain user groups. Hand on your heart. If you use the layouts for your customer projects, you might not want your customers to have access to them.

Here “Divi – Disable Premade Layouts” helps you. If you activate it, the predefined layouts are only accessible for administrators without any further changes. However, you can also completely disable them in the “Divi Themes Options Panel” or set a multiple user authorizationss. This uses “current_user_can ()”.

It is also fully compatible with the Visual Builder.

A helper plugin to hide the new premade layouts of Elegant Themes for users except administrators.

Furthermore, the plugin is multisite compatible and works with automatic updates.

Please note that at least PHP 5.6+ ( better is PHP 7.0+ ) must be installed on your server. You also need the Divi Theme with a minimum version of 3.0.99. Photo Credits

    Thank you for developing this plugin. I am using a custom theme with only the Divi Builder Plug-in and I can’t seem to get it to work. Is it not supposed to work with just the Divi Builder Plug-in?

    Hello, I’m getting this error when enabling the plugin (and the settings don’t appear). “Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /app/public/wp-content/plugins/divi-disable-premade-layouts/divi-disable-premade-layouts.php on line 377 Warning: array_merge(): Argument #1 is not an array in /app/public/wp-content/plugins/divi-disable-premade-layouts/divi-disable-premade-layouts.php on line 428”

    Hi Bruno, thank you for creating this plugin. I think there may be a bug with the latest version of Divi though. When using a non-admin account, saved layouts are no longer visible – only pre-existing pages. The tab with the option for layouts saved to the library isn’t available to choose from. Cheers, Jon

    • Jon

      Update – as far as I can tell, this only happens when using the back end Divi builder. The option to load saved layouts is still available when using the front end visual builder.

    Just installed, its not actually disabling the Premade Layouts. Unlike a commentor from 1-31, I am not experiencing the WSOD. I am on 3.19.09 (version before and as I write this 3.19.11 is available). I’m going to wait and see, hoping to see this updated when the author gets a chance!

      I am using the latest version of Divi and disable premade layouts is working even when I add a page form the front end. I am also using the classic builder.

    Howdy Bruno,
    as much as I like this product, I think that as of the latest Divi version (3.19.10) the plugin causes the WSoD. Happened twice to me today, and in both cases, disabling this plugin returned things to normal.

    Hope there’s a fix, really like to keep this functionality!

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    Looks like this plugin is what ive been looking for.

    However, here is an issue i would like to point out. “Premade Layouts” tabs is disabled but under ‘Your Existing page, the premade layouts are available instead of site pages.

    Have a look at this screenshot

    Hi Bruno,

    Thanks for fixing the last one within the new backend editor 😀 ! However, I just discovered one new option to include the premade layouts due to the very last Divi update (v. 3.19.), introducing the search feature within the Divi Builder:
    Search Icon > Insert > scroll down to and hit “Premade Layout”.

    Could you please implement the removal of this new “premade layout picking option” into your plugin too?

    Thanks,
    Urs

    Reply
    • ua

      …there are even more:
      * Search Icon > Insert > Saved Layout
      * Search Icon > Insert > Existing Page Layout
      * Search Icon > Insert > Existing Post Layout

      These search options open up the same dialogue. So, it may be best to actually hide the according “Premade Layout Tab” in this dialogue.

      Thanks,
      Urs

      Reply
      • Bruno Bouyajdad

        The point with the premade layouts cannot be removed because it has no class to go over.

        However, when you click on it, the dialog window opens now and only your own layouts are displayed. Unfortunately there is no better solution at this point.

        Of course you could work with a :nth-child() selector, but there is a good chance that the selection menu will change in the future. That’s why this is the most sensible solution at this point.

        Take the update to version 1.1.1.

    Hi Bruno,
    I just updated Divi to the latest version (3.18.4). Unfortunately, the plugin does not block the premade layouts in the new backend editor anymore. As soon as the Divi Builder is activated in the backend of a new page, the “choose-layout dialogue box” pops up including the premade layouts. Could you please provide a fix for your plugin to make it compatible with the latest Divi Builder version?
    Thanks!
    Best wishes,
    Urs

    I tested my website with and without the plugin, and it seems like it adds about 6-11 seconds onto loading a Module’s Settings inside the Divi Builder. Do you know of a way to improve this, or to test for sure?

    Thanks

    • Bruno Bouyajdad

      I didn’t notice that personally and nobody else has reported about it so far. Nothing can be further optimized. It is a very lightweight plugin without superfluous content. On the contrary. Since the premade layouts are not rendered in the browser, it should go rather faster.

    Hi

    This is a great little plugin however I would like to just disable the Divi premade layouts and not the custom ones I have created. At the moment it is just showing pages I can copy layouts from.

    Thanks

    Reply
    • Bruno Bouyajdad

      Not sure what you mean. It works well with own layouts, but they must also be created as layouts. Modules etc. are not displayed here, but this is specified by ET itself: https://i.imgur.com/XUm8FnX.jpg

    Hi Bruno,

    I just noticed that your plugin “Divi Disable Premade Layouts” doesn’t work anymore. Switching to an editor role, which must not have access to the “Premade Layouts”, I correctly get only the two tabs “Your Saved Layouts” and “Your Existing Pages” when editing a page. However, clicking on “Your Saved Layouts” actually brings up the “Premade Layouts” instead of “Your Saved Layouts” (see 1st screenshot https://www.dropbox.com/s/56ga6ccgpwfihsu/Screen%20Shot%202018-07-09%20at%2013.18.53.png?dl=0).

    In addition, Elegant Themes added one more layout selector when switching from the back-end editor to the visual builder (see 2nd screenshot https://www.dropbox.com/s/31kpg13kokd4x60/Screen%20Shot%202018-07-09%20at%2013.33.23.png?dl=0). As this new Layout selector also provides the option to pick the option “Premade Layouts”, it’s necessary to also hide this option in this dialogue. Otherwise, your plugin “Divi Disable Premade Layouts” becomes useless.

    Could you please provide an update for these two issues?

    Thanks!

    Best wishes,
    Urs

      Hello Urs,

      I have already answered you support form. Please don’t use the comments for support requests.

      For the first point, I cannot rebuild this issue. It works well in my environment with Divi 3.9. Please ensure that the field “Layouts Change User Role” is empty or add

      administrator

      Otherwise deactivate all other plugins and change your theme to Divi itself (if you are using a child theme). Check it again. Activate your theme and plugins step by step. Which plugin causes the problem?

      For the second point. Yes, you’re right. Thanks for pointing that out. I’m very busy until 25. July. Then I will release an update. Meanwhile just add this snippet to the CSS Box inside the Divi Theme Options. This will hide the premade layouts blurb in the visual builder for new pages:

      .et-fb-page-creation-container div:nth-child(2) {
      display: none;
      }

    Perfect. Thanks. But after the last update with 3-step-workflow, it does not work anymore. The saved layouts are not loading in pagebuilder. In visual builder the saved layouts are loading, but the premade layouts, too.

      Hello Sebastian,

      it is tested with Divi 3.7 and Divi 3.7.1 and it works fine. Maybe there is a plugin conflict in your environment. Please deactivate all other plugins and change your theme to Divi itself (if you are using a child theme). Check it again. Activate your theme and plugins step by step. Which plugin causes the problem?

      All the best, Bruno

      It works without problems up to Divi 3.9. Please note that as an administrator you will always see all layouts if you have not entered any other role in the “Layouts Change User Role” field.

    Hi Bruno, this is a great product but the premade layouts tab is still shown for a second to the user 😉

    Reply

      This happens because the Javascript is loaded a little later. Unfortunately, ET doesn’t fire a trigger you could latch into here, so it can only be solved with an interval.

            This is certainly not the normal behaviour. The self-saved layouts are not affected by the plugin. There must be another reason. Please deactivate all other plugins and change your theme to Divi itself (if you are using a child theme). Check it again. Activate your theme and plugins step by step. Which plugin causes the problem?

    Hi Bruno Great Plugin !
    Thanks for Developing it and making our life easier.

    I set “Layout Change User Role” to Blank. Then The Premade Layouts are Gone in Builder.
    After that I disabled the Plugin for a while and re-enabled it.
    Now I can’t find the plugins options (i.e. Layout Disable User Check and Layout Change User Role) in the Divi Theme Options.

    I am on Divi Version: 3.0.105 & Divi – Disable Premade Layouts Version: 1.0.2

    Can you help me on this ?

    Thanks in advance !

      After that I disabled the Plugin for a while and re-enabled the plugin.

      If I change my Active Child theme from ABC-Child theme to Divi or any other Theme. All WordPress Back-end pages goes Blank.

      Hope this will help you to fix it and improve the plugin.

          I can’t mimic this error and actually it shouldn’t appear, because “et_get_option()” is defined in Divi itself. Please read the description again. The plugin can only be used with the Divi or the Extra Theme.

    Thanks for the awesome plugin and awesome solution..!

    But I still have one more problem here… I actually allowed my client to have access to Divi Theme Options > General page. Because this is the only page that they can upload/change the website Logo. That means they will have the access to change the ‘Layouts Disable User Check’ & ‘Layouts Change User Role’ settings too! I was hoping that I can find any CSS class that attached with these 2 settings, so that I can hide it with custom CSS. But no luck.. T__T
