For a business website, whether it’s selling products or services, it’s essential to have FAQs. And for those FAQs, what’s important is that they should be optimized for FAQ Page Schema. Likewise, How To Schema, this page schema helps your website’s frequently asked questions appear in the search results as rich snippets. But if you’re using Divi theme for your website, then there’s no native way to add them on the site other than using the accordion and toggle module. However, those FAQ won’t have the schema for FAQs.
Therefore, in this blog post, we’re going to see, how we can add FAQs in the Divi theme optimized with FAQ Page Schema for rich snippets.
Step 1: Add the FAQPage Schema module
Once downloaded the plugin, upload it in the WordPress to install it, and then after installation, activate it. Once the plugin gets activated, make sure the FAQPage Schema is enabled. To do that, hover to the Settings menu in your WordPress dashboard, and click Divi Plus. Here, in the general tab, you’d find all the modules that come with the plugin. But for this tutorial, tick the checkbox next to the FAQPage Schema module.
After enabling the module, create a new page or edit an existing one, where you want to add Divi FAQs. Then on that page, insert the FAQPage Schema module.
Step 2: Content settings
Once the module gets inserted, you get Content settings, which allows you to add FAQs, set FAQs title, and other native settings of the Divi builder.
Give your FAQs a title and move on the next step.

Upon adding a new FAQ, you get content settings for that FAQ in which you can input FAQ question and its answer.

The Accordion layout supports up to 4 columns to display FAQ. Furthermore, another layout you get with module is Grid.

And for the answers, go to the Answer Text settings. These options will let you change the look & feel of the available question and answer text.
However, this setting’s tweak only applies if you haven’t used the individual settings. After the customization, the question and answer text would look like the below image.
