Naming conventions are important for keeping files organized. It’s common to change the way you name things over time or name something in a way that doesn’t make sense to you later. It can be difficult to think up a great item name every time. With Divi Cloud, we don’t have to create the perfect name for every element on the first try. Divi Cloud makes it easy to rename your layouts, categories, and tags. In this article, we’ll see how to rename a Divi Cloud item. We’ll also discuss some best practices for naming Divi Cloud items and see why you’d want to rename them.

Good Divi Cloud Items Naming Practices

Divi Cloud items are files. Like any other type of file, there are several things to keep in mind when naming your Divi Cloud items. The naming conventions are up to you. You can name them according to your tastes or practices but following standard naming conventions makes them easier to understand and organize.

Keep the format consistent. Don’t use all caps for one and lower case for the next. They should all have dashes, or none have dashes. The names should look like they belong in the same library. I recommend using a title format that would capitalize each significant word.

Include the type of element in its name. This makes the name more valuable and the element easier to identify.

For categories, name them as broad topics, such as home page, header, etc. For tags, name them as subtopics to refine the categories. They can be descriptive, such as “Minimal” or “Modern”.
