3. Add Blog module in the Divi Builder area and any other options you want to add in search results.

 

4. Don’t forget to check “Posts for Current Page,” in Blog Module’s Content setting.

Posts For Current Page

According to Elegant Themes, this option simply telling Divi to display the posts that are normally generated whenever a user visits the page.

5. Save it in both Front-end area and Divi Theme Builder Main area. You could also save it in Divi Library, if you want to use it in future.

Now, after saving it, it will look like below screenshots upon searching for particular term.

    Please make DIVI work with Relevanssi again. With DIVI’s search module, it shows just a few results (or no results at all) for queries which would return several good results with Relevanssi.
