Divi is constantly updating their core files and here’s some tips and tricks to help you get a quick fix and help you make your Divi life easier. Recently Divi found a bug that makes back-end divi builder unworkable on safari due to limitations of its local-storage. It is the most important issue on their bug tracker currently, and their development team working on it to find a solution. But it should work with other browsers though.(We are not talking about custom modules here. Even the default modules are having this issue)
Divi updated to 3.0.76 which will help to resolve all these as well. The update also includes some optimization for the classic Divi Builder that should address some of the issues that have been popping up recently related to module settings popups not opening or the Divi Builder not loading, which was caused by browser localstorage limits. Make sure you are on the latest Divi to get this. Otherwise the tips below will help you as well.
Step 1: Clear Browser Cache/Cookies
Browser Cache – a place on your computer or device where your browser stores the information about a website that doesn’t change often. Rather than downloading the same information every time you visit the website, the browser pulls the information from its memory. The web page loads faster and the network uses less data.
I think it’s good to have this practice everytime you update your Divi or any plugins because your browser is still using the cached files.
Step 2: Builder Timeout with .htaccess fix
If you try and edit a post or a page on your website using the Divi or Visual builder you might see a popup named “Divi Builder Timeout” that prevents you from using the editor.
The cause of the problem is that the Divi builder is reaching a certain limit applied to the Apache service. After searching on ElegantThemes forum and Google, I found that by placing this code to your .htaccess will resolve the particular limit on Apache Service.
< IfModule mod_substitute.c > SubstituteMaxLineLength 10M < /IfModule >
(Make sure your remove the spaces on the < > tag )
Step 3: Increase WordPress Memory Limit on your hosting
To address memory limit issues, there are two paths:
Adjust it yourself or Contact your hosting company
FTP to your web hosting and edit your wp-config.php file
Add this to the very bottom:
WooCommerce recommends at least 64M. 128M should be enough for most sites, but if you run resource intensive plugins, you may have to go higher. You can increase it incrementally until you can complete the task that triggered the message.
Step 4: Download Divi Tweaker
One of the best Divi plugin so far. A Divi Tweak Tool that make your Divi fly high without coding. Speed optimizing, page transitions and more. This plugin has a option to allow you to display a button on the Divi Page Builder area to clear the localStorage on your browser. Use this when you are experiencing Quota Exceeded for copy and paste module. This is very useful when Divi or 3rd party modules get updated.
By clicking on Clear Divi localStorage, you are able to open up modules and also copy and paste without issue. You can download them at https://diviwebdesign.com/store/divi-custom-modules/divi-tweaker/
