Post Type Search Module For Divi


Sometimes you just want search results to be limited to a custom post type. Or you want to search posts, but not pages. Or you want to search Staff members and projects, but not posts. And now you can!
Post Type Search Module For Divi adds a custom module to the Divi Theme by Elegant Themes. This module operates like the standard Search Module, but also allows you to select the Post Types that you want users to be able to search. You can select one post type, or many, the choice is up to you!

This only impacts searches initiated by this custom module, the standard Divi Search Module and WordPress search functions continue to operate normally.

PLEASE NOTE: Third party custom modules for Divi are not accessible while using the Visual Builder. To utilize this module, edit the page and use the Classic Divi Builder.


  • Divi Builder Module Selection
  • Post Type Search Module Settings
  • Post Type Search Module Settings with Projects Selected


  1. Install Post Type Search Module For Divi like any other WordPress plugin, directly from your plugins page.
  2. Activate the plugin.
  3. Edit any Page / Post using the Divi Builder.
  4. Add the Post Type Search module to your page and select your options.


Does this plugin require the Divi theme?

This plugin only works when the Divi Theme is active, or when the Divi Builder Plugin is active.

I normally don't use plugins that don't get updated regularly, but I needed this specific functionality. Still works great!

Works exactly like you think it should. A really great job.

You are the Hero of the day!! Even if the plugin is not updated to work with the latest version of Divi, it still works like a charm. You will only notice a small delay on the visual builder. Thanks for this plugin!

Super pleased to have found this plugin. When I just had a single custom post type it was no big deal going into the backend and coding my own searches, but as soon as I brought several others into the loop I was happy to see the problem had already been expertly solved (and integrated with Divi no less!). Thanks for creating this superb plugin!

Right on, Jerry! I´d just realized that the standard Divi search module would not be of any use to me for this website I´m building, because it uses custom post types for a particular kind of dictionary. So I searched for "divi search module custom post types" looking for a possible totorial or tip (without much confidence on finding something useful, to tell you the truth) and there you were with your plugin! It does what it says, which to me means saved time and hassle. Thank you.
