Divi by Elegant Themes – Review

DIVI - Featured Image

Divi has been one of the most-hyped and publicized theme released by Elegant Themes and the team seems to be very proud of it. And justifiably so ! I downloaded it this morning and took it for a spin. It has far surpassed my expectations so far.

Divi WordPress Theme

What I really like best about this theme is that it settles the conflict between a theme and a page-builder. Each WordPress theme comes with its own style of pages and so does Divi. But what’s strikingly different about Divi is that you do not have to take resort to a page building plugin to add your own preferences to your site pages. Divi comes with a powerful page builder.
As a website owner, when you plan your design, you are very restricted -as in, after you choose a theme, you have to plan things around the layouts and styles that the theme supports. Divi changes everything. You control the theme instead of the other way around – exactly as it should be !
This screenshot shows how you can create a page using the default WordPress options –

But when you have installed the Divi theme at your site, you have an option to use its Page Builder.
Once you choose to create a page using the Divi theme Page Builder, you have an array of options to choose from. You feel overwhelmed with all the choices that you get.

Simply go on picking elements that you need on a page and save your layout. The next page that you wish to have the same layout, simply import your saved layout.
Each page can have its own layout and style with Divi. Yes, it is true that you can achieve the same results with any page builder plugin but there is a big difference.
When you use a page builder plugin and create, say 5 pages, you have to rework on each of these 5 pages to get your pages to look compatible and consistent with the rest of the site (theme). With Divi, this is different. Each page inherits the theme’s feel.
Divi offers a lot more than what other WordPress themes have to offer. It is different and it is very powerful. Imagine getting a variety of options to pick from and then also getting an easy tool to create and tweak some more.
