Hey Divi Nation,
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…
I have been playing around with injecting Divi Page Builder sections into pages that normally you could not. Such as the Archive and Category pages. This week I played around with creating a custom 404 page and injecting an entire page layout from the Divi Library.
We also added my very first Divi Plugin to the Divi Marketplace. And on the Engaging WorkLife blog, Phil Simon gives us some great tips on how to use give effective presentations.
So without further ado, here is this weeks round-up of all the latest updates on Quiroz.co & Monterey Premier.
Cheers and remember to keep Having Fun!

Create a 404 Page Using The Divi Builder
Creating a good 404 page for your website is a good idea. You never know when an old page or blog post that might have changed or has been removed is still linked elsewhere on the web. The 404 page is a useful way to share that the page is missing and still give users an opportunity to find something else they may be looking for.
So in this tutorial, I am going to share with you the method we used on Monterey Premier’s 404 page template injecting a saved Divi Library Layout into the 404 page template.

How to Give Effective Presentations: Start with Simple Slides.
By Phil Simon
From 2009 until very recently, I called myself a writer and professional speaker. By way of background, it took a while, but my books eventually led to proper speaking (read: paid) speaking gigs. Even when I wasn’t speaking in front of a group of folks, I observed how others comported themselves on stage. For instance, I attended probably 80 or so conferences while I lived in Las Vegas. Long story short: I’ve seen all kinds of folks on stage and most speakers suck.
To be sure, I’ve seen some speakers light up the stage. Still, a competent—much less dynamic—orator is rare indeed. Put differently, for every dynamo like Keith Ferrazi, there are probably 20 or so duds.
Of course, one could write a book on public speaking—and many have. Confessions of a Public Speaker is one of my faves. Today, though, I’ll focus on one critical aspect of speaking: slides.
