How to add modules inside modules?

Hey guys, in this tutorial you will learn how to add any layout within a module using a short code. 

First things first. You will need a child theme for this to stay working even through updates.

Step 1

Now, go to Appearance > Editor and click on function.php

Then, add the following code at the bottom without disturbing any previous code.

// create new column in et_pb_layout screen
add_filter( 'manage_et_pb_layout_posts_columns', 'ds_create_shortcode_column', 5 );
add_action( 'manage_et_pb_layout_posts_custom_column', 'ds_shortcode_content', 5, 2 );
// register new shortcode
add_shortcode('ds_layout_sc', 'ds_shortcode_mod');

// New Admin Column
function ds_create_shortcode_column( $columns ) {
$columns['ds_shortcode_id'] = 'Module Shortcode';
return $columns;

//Display Shortcode
function ds_shortcode_content( $column, $id ) {
if( 'ds_shortcode_id' == $column ) {

[ds_layout_sc id=""]

'*'),$ds_mod_id)); return do_shortcode('
'); }[/et_pb_text]

Here you can see a new column is created with a shirtcode for each layout.  

Step 2

Now you can injuect layouts within layouts by simply copying and pasting the shortcode in which ever module you want.
