Divi Default Post Settings plugin

June 15, 2016 | Divi, FREE!, PHP, Plugins, Plugins, Themes, Time Savers, Wordpress | 6 comments

I’ve been thinking about this for some time now. And today in the Divi Theme Users Facebook group someone wanted to know how to set the new post settings meta box defaults. As it turns out it was quite easy really. Using a similar method to the likes of WooCommerce and WordPress, it checked for the non-existence of a function before they declare theirs. So getting my own function in there first means we can insert our settings as we see fit.

As it turns out making the settings page took longer than the override itself. See below for the download link.. I hope people find it useful 🙂

      O-ow… love u no more! lol! … the defaults are set on plugin and appear correctly on the new post backend, but as soon as I click on Publish, the new post returns its default. I bought two other plugins from you that work perfectly, but this is the only one that I need desperately so I can deliver the job to the customer… Some chance to have your eyes on this?! No problem paying to solve. Thank you very much!

    Hey! Same thing… loved to finally find a solution for that tiny problem. But as Sergio already said, unfortunately it returns to default after publishing the post.
    Thanks for fixing – and i would also pay for it!

    Hi! For me there is also the same problem (Divi Version: 3.0.83), that posts return to default after clicking “publish”. Do you have a fix for this maybe? Would pay for it! All the best. 🙂
