    How do I update the colors in the .json layout?
    Also, I tried building it from scratch and changed the colors in the css, but nothing changes?

      It must be caching issue then. Please clear your browser cache and check again.

    Hi Maciej Ekstedt

    I absolutely love your posts on these different modules but I was wondering if you could help me out on some information on how to achieve this type blurb slider (i call it that I would not know what other people would call it). Please have a look at the example on this like and if you could let me know.https://www.bluefountainmedia.com/paid-media. I have searched the web but maybe I am searching with the wrong description.

      Hi Shane,

      I don’t think if Divi offers this functionality. You would need some custom coding or use 3rd party plugin to achieve blurbs or any other content in a slider form. There is Smart Slider 3 plugin which is integrated with Divi Visual Builder. Maybe worth of try?
