Grid layouts are great for content that needs to be kept together. Testimonials are an excellent example. Divi’s testimonials are created with a new module for each testimonial, but fortunately, displaying them in a grid is simple. In this article, we’ll see how to create a testimonial grid layout with Divi’s testimonial module. We’ll see two different layouts, so you can choose which is best for your needs.
Let’s get started!

Here’s a look at what we’ll make in this tutorial. I’m creating a testimonial section using the design styles from the free Print Shop Layout Pack that’s available within Divi.

Alternate Testimonial Layout
The testimonial grid we’ve made works great if the testimonials are about the same size. What if you have a few small and a few large testimonials? For this, a grid with different sizes for the columns is ideal. We can place the testimonials with the most information in the larger columns.
For this example. we’ll create new columns with the same spacing settings, and use the same testimonials as before, but with varying amounts of text.
Create the Alternate Rows
First, add a 2-column row that has a 1/3 column on the left and a 2/3 column on the right.
Create the Alternate Rows
Next, open the row’s settings, go to the design tab, scroll down to Sizing, and select Use Custom Gutter Width. Change the Gutter Width to 1.

  • Use Custom Gutter Width: Yes
  • Gutter Width: 1

Create the Alternate Rows
Next, scroll to Spacing. Enter 0px for the Top and Bottom Padding. Close the row’s settings.

  • Padding: 0px Top, Bottom

Create the Alternate Rows
Next, duplicate the row.
Create the Alternate Rows
Select the second row’s layout options and choose the layout with 2/3 on the left and 1/3 on the right.
Create the Alternate Rows
Add Four Testimonial Modules
Finally, create or drag your testimonial modules to the rows. I’m using the same modules as in the previous example, but I’ve changed the body content to create different sizes.
Add Four Testimonial Modules
The modules fit the width of their columns as they did in the previous example, but each is different heights because of their body content. This creates awkward spacing within the grid. Fortunately, this is easy to fix. This also works for the regular grid if your testimonial content is of different sizes.
Open the settings for the first module and go to the design tab. Scroll down to Sizing and enter 100% for Height. Repeat this for each module.

  • Height: 100%

Ending Thoughts
That’s our look at how to create a testimonial grid layout with Divi’s testimonial module. Divi’s row and module settings work great together to create a grid of multiple rows and column counts. The examples we’ve shown here can easily be expanded upon to create even larger grids. The concepts also work with other types of Divi modules.
