In this post, we’ll go over how to add and delete Divi Cloud categories and tags and more! Cloud categories and tags act similar to native WordPress categories and tags but do not impact SEO as WP categories and tags do.

Cloud categories and tags work exactly the same as WordPress local categories and tags. Assigning categories and tags to your Cloud items helps keep things organized and easily searchable.

How To Apply Categories And Tags While Saving An Item

When you’re saving an item to the cloud, that is a great time to add categories and tags.

Saving Page Layouts With Categories And Tags

First, we’ll take a look at how you can save entire layouts to your Divi Cloud using categories and tags.

  1. Navigate to the page you want to save and enable the Visual Builder.
  2. Click the purple downward arrow icon on the Divi toolbar at the bottom of the page to save the page layout to your library.
  3. This brings up the Add To Library window with the following options:
  4. Layout Name – Name the page layout.
  5. Save To Divi Cloud – Toggle this option to “on” to save this page layout to the Divi Cloud.
  6. Add To Categories – Click the checkbox next to the category you want to be assigned to this layout, or create a new category by typing in the input field.
  7. Add To Tags – Click in the tags input field to apply existing tags, or create a new tag by typing in the second input field.

Saving Sections, Rows, and Modules With Categories And Tags

The approach is similar when it comes to sections, rows and, modules.

  1. Navigate to the section, row, or module you want to save and enable the Visual Builder.
  2. Click the purple downward arrow icon on the section, row, or module. This brings up the Add To Library window with the following options:
  3. Layout Name – Type the name of the section, row, or module you’re saving here.
  4. Save To Divi Cloud – Toggle this option to “on” to save this page layout to the Divi Cloud.
  5. Save As Global – Toggle this option to “on” if you’d like to save the item as a global item. Note: If you click Save To Divi Cloud, then you won’t be able to save this item as a global item. Same thing vice versa – if you save this item as a global item, you won’t be able to save it to the cloud.
  6. Add To Categories – Click the checkbox next to the category you want to be assigned to the item, or create a new category by typing in the input field.
  7. Add To Tags – Click in the tags input field to apply existing tags, or create a new tag by typing in the second input field.

How To Re-Organize Cloud Item Tags and Categories

Now, at some point, you might want to change the categories and tags that you’ve assigned to a specific cloud item. To do that, you can follow these steps:

  1. To change the tags and categories assigned to a Divi Cloud item, navigate to that item and click the 3 ellipses to bring up options. Then click “Edit Tags and Categories”.
  2. This brings up the categories and tags window where you can check or uncheck the categories you want to be assigned to this cloud item.
  3. If you have tags assigned to this item you’ll see them listed in the “Add To Tags” section. To add a new tag, type the name of the tag in the input field.
  4. Click the green checkmark to save your changes.
