Before you begin
Things you have to keep in mind…
You need to have post created to make these layouts work:
We also recommend that you configure your website to have a minimum width of 1280px
Create the blog page
Create your blog page is very easy. To do this you will only have to create a new page, select the template that you like the most and import it through the Divi builder. You can see how to do this in this video.
Edit or change the header of your blog page
Ultimate blog has some extra headers for the blog page that you can combine as you like. To add one of these headers the process is very similar to the previous one.
Important: When you import the header you wan to use the option ‘Replace existing content’ has to be disabled like in this picture:

You can force the featured size of your images with a plugin like this one:
