Divi Theme – A Brief Introduction

The Divi WordPress theme is a flagship product developed by Elegant Themes and was initially released as Divi 1.0 on the 11th of December 2013. From that time onwards, Divi has seen several updates (300+) and is constantly getting improved in terms of visual appeal and performance.

Everyone in the WordPress eco-space is well aware of Divi. It comes in two forms. The Divi WP theme and the Divi Builder–an independent page builder.

But, from October 2019, with the release of Divi 4.0, Elegant Themes have added the Divi Theme Builder within the actual Divi Theme itself.

Divi version 4.0 is the major current release with other minor releases coming out almost once a month.

Including the Divi Builder within the Divi Theme is by far the best decision made by Elegant Themes. This gives the user the ease of customizing anything and everything on their website.

For that reason, most bloggers, freelancers, SEO agencies and Web Design firms choose Divi without a second guess. Eventually, boosting the sales of Divi Theme.

If you’d ask me, then honestly, there is little to no effort in creating websites with Divi.


What’s In The Divi Version 4.0?

First of all, you get a theme- Divi Theme and a Page Builder- Divi Builder.

Now, Elegant Themes also bundles an additional theme- Extra Theme, an Email Opt-In Plugin- Bloom, and a Social Plugin- Monarch.

With the previous versions of Divi, you weren’t able to customize Headers, Footers, Sidebars, and dynamic content.

Visual Editing was a dream and was never ever implemented until Divi 4.0. Now, with the latest version of Divi you get to search any modules and create rows and sections anywhere on your site.

Change the section’s structure, add unlimited modules one after the other, adjust the spacing, control size, color, positioning, etc.

Create multiple presets, and save them for future use.

Make Divi Custom Post Type Archive pages, Divi Custom Modules, Custom Post Grids, and much more in this Divi Version 4.0

You get the ability to use Divi Leads, a powerful feature that helps you in performing split testing for all your Divi pages.

Additionally, you can now build Custom Headers & Footers, Category Pages, Blog Post Templates, 404 Pages, and more.

It also offers Dynamic Content, 42 Divi Modules, and 25 Divi WooCommerce Modules. So that you never feel like not having enough modules.

Most of the changes seen with Divi 4.0 are in the Theme Builder.


Sites Running The Dive Theme

Before moving on to the detailed Divi theme review, let me show you popular sites running on the Divi theme.

As per the statistics shown on Builtwith, Divi is one of the most popular WordPress themes, in countries like the USA, Canada, UK, Spain, etc. It powers more than 2.3 million websites around the world.

Let us look at some Divi theme examples. Actual sites running on the Internet.

Brave official website - built using Divi

This is another popular website offering services in the SAAS and E-Commerce verticals.

KissMetrics official website - built using Divi

Following is an example of a website that sells digital products like website templates and courses.

The Design Space official website - built using Divi

So, you can see how Divi can be used on almost any type of website. Use the theme on blogs, eCommerce stores, portfolios, business websites, etc.

Now let us look at the unique features of the Divi WordPress theme.


Divi Theme Review – Features

Let us start by analyzing all the best features of the Divi theme.

Divi Builder

Since the time Elegant Themes have merged Divi Builder into the Divi theme, there has been a massive change in the way users are building their websites.

Since, the advanced page builder is capable of Visual Editing and Drag-and-Drop features, many website owners are shifting to the Divi WordPress theme.

For a clear understanding, you can think of the Divi theme as a multi-purpose theme with page building capabilities, just like Elementor and Beaver and Builder.

Note:- Divi Builder can also be used with any other WordPress theme.

Its back-end and front-end building lets you visualize your entire website during the designing phase. All changes made are truly real-time.

All customization work performed will be done on the visual interface shown below.

Divi page builder with header and sections

Divi Builder’s interface lets you control all the layouts by adding different Divi modules to Rows and Columns.

For example, in the image shown above, I have kept a Header, 2 Text modules, a Contact Form, and an Image Module.

Divi Theme Builder

The Divi Theme Builder compliments Divi Builder’s interface to let you create Custom Theme Templates for Pages, Posts, Product Pages, Category Pages, Author Pages, Search Pages, and 404 Pages.

Out of all the page builders, it has a separate Dashboard, merged into the main dashboard of your WordPress website.

Moreover, you can also select where the custom template has to appear. This means you can include and exclude displaying the page on certain areas of your website.

What can you do with the Divi Theme Builder?

With the Divi Theme Builder you can create the following;

  • Custom Divi Header and Footers, without any type of coding
  • Create custom posts and pages
  • Make separate templates for every category page
  • Use Divi Dynamic Content for each post type or the product page
  • Create Author Pages, 404 Pages, and a Search Page template
  • Divi theme Builder also lets you export all custom templates to other Divi sites

The screenshot above shows that your custom posts, pages or templates can be used on specific parts of your website.

Divi Theme Options

The Divi Theme Options is another Divi settings dashboard for your website. It presents you with settings for customizing options like website navigation, SEO, accessibility, layout, site Ad management, theme updates, etc.

Just like the WordPress settings, but a lot more precise than the Divi theme’s settings.

Divi theme options

General Settings

You can set your site Logo, fix Navigation Bar, select colors, and style your blog page, enable or disable social media icons.

Additionally, if you have a business or a physical store, you also get to include Google API key for enabling Google Maps in Divi Theme.

Navigation Settings

Set the navigation bar, include/exclude pages, categories, and set the no. of Drop Down Tiers.

Layout Settings

Help you in adding PostInfo. Just like the meta-information; Post Author, Published Date, Category, Comments, Thumbs on Pages, etc.

Divi Ads

The Divi Theme Options also let you manage Ads on your website. Giving 468X60 advertisement space on Single Posts, as Banner Image, and lets you input Adsense Code as well.

SEO Settings

Divi Theme Options SEO settings offer you additional SEO settings for Homepage, Single Page and Single Post SEO.

Think of these settings as a level above the default WordPress SEO settings. You get to apply custom titles, meta, custom keywords, descriptions, etc.

Divi Integration

Helps in adding third-party code to your websites like custom codes for Header and Body. Plus Code Integration settings allow you to enable custom code in different sections of your website.

For example, the Google Analytics tracking code goes over here. You also get separate space to add custom code before post, after post body, before comments, etc.

Updates

Your Username and API Key go over here. Plus, this section helps you to roll back to the previous Divi version. In case the current version is not stable or gives you trouble in any way.

Divi Layouts and Page Templates

One of the most powerful strengths of Elegant Themes is their Divi library.

With a total of 258 Divi Layouts and 1891 Divi page templates, you can never ask for anything else. That is a massive library to choose from.

Divi elegant themes

All layouts are easily searchable via categories like Art & Design, Business, Community, Non-Profit, Education, Wine & Dine, Health & Fitness, etc.

Few of the most applied layouts are the Divi Copywriter Template, Yoga Studios, LMS Pack, and Design Agency, and Fitness Pack.

You can either choose the entire layout, that comprises homepage, single post, page, contact page, product page, etc. or select a particular content design (single page template).

Divi Modules Overview

Divi Modules are all the website elements that are needed while creating a website. All Divi modules are present in the Divi Builder and are accessible via drag-and-drop.

Some of the Divi modules are Divi Accordion Module, Image Module, Text Module, Blurb Module, etc.

Think of them as Content Building Blocks that are required while creating a Divi website or a webpage that contains sections, rows, and columns.

Divi modules

Currently, there are 42 Divi Modules. The Divi theme also lets you create Custom Divi Modules, add them as reusable blocks, and use it just like any other Divi module.

Plus, the Divi builder also comes with 25 Divi WooCommerce Modules, for creating amazing product pages and shop pages.

Divi Drag & Drop Capability

Divi is a multi-purpose theme giving you a full fledged theme with a visual builder.

Meaning, however you want to customize your websites, just edit with Divi builder.

Yes, that’s right. The Divi Builder is a standalone page builder with 100% drag-and-drop capability.

how to enable visual builder divi

Divi Builder also works with any other WordPress theme just as how it works with Divi theme.

The page builder is not at all different from other popular page builders available in the market like Elementor, Thrive Architect, etc.

But, the only difference is that, Divi Builder is built into the Divi theme. That means, if you purchase this theme, you do not need to separately buy another page builder, giving you the benefit of both.

Divi Visual Builder

The Divi Builder comes in two forms, a regular Backend editor and the Frontend Visual Builder.

Main power of Divi is hidden in its Visual Builder. It is not only a drag-and-drop page builder, but also allows you to build pages right in front of you.

Divi visual builder front-end and back-end example

With the front end visual builder, you can add content, make specific design adjustments, or even place modules in different areas of the webpage. All your changes will appear instantly, right in front of you.

Divi Leads

With the help of Divi Split Testing tool you can easily perform A/B tests for any page on your Divi website.

Divi lead generation

Let your visitors directly give you an idea of what works and what does not. Giving you better clarity in keeping only those pages that really bring in more visitors, eventually gets you better conversions.

Split testing experiment is possible with Divi leads feature built into the theme. It lets you keep track of which versions of a particular testing page performed well.


Customization – Divi Theme Review

Divi has one of the best customization options anyone would ever ask for. All of which can be enabled without the need for coding.

Theme customization is everyone’s most important factor when considering buying a premium WordPress theme.

Divi does not only offer a theme customizer to perform basic site customization with respect to layouts, spacing, primary navigation, footer, sidebar etc., but also allows you to drag-and-drop various modules anywhere on your website.

Plus, the Divi Theme Builder is another cherry on the cake, that allows you to easily create all sorts of custom pages, posts, category pages, product pages, etc.

Truly, a Divi theme review would really stay incomplete without touching this part of the theme.

Easy Responsive Editing

what is responsive web designing

Just like every other WordPress theme, Divi is also highly responsive and also gives enough options to try customizing different aspects of the site for various device types.

For example, if I’m creating three buttons in one single row, within a section. I get to customize the size of the button, fonts and font sizes in the button, vertical and horizontal spacing, and overall button designing (colors, borders, shadows) for all three device types – desktop, tablet, and mobile.

Divi offers you the privilege to toggle between different device views while editing your page on the go (visual editing). The visual builder stays completely functional in all three modes, so you can apply specific breakpoints for every view.

Most importantly the page content is not at all compromised.

Moreover, all Divi premade layouts also support responsive editing.

Divi Hover Effects

The Divi theme lets you create awesome looking websites. But, if you’ve ever wanted to enhance your designs even further, try using the Divi hover effects.

Each and every setting in Divi that supports Transitions can be customized with Hover Effects.

Through Hover Styling one can easily provide micro-interaction effects to their visitors, which would make them feel that there is something clickable behind the effect.

Make them browse more and more throughout your valuable content. Eventually, reducing the overall bounce rate of your site.

Divi Fonts

Typography is an element that is highly responsible in grabbing your reader’s attention.

divi fonts

The Divi Typography settings offer you more than 800 fonts with tons of weights and styles that help you easily create the right type of font pairing for captivating your audience and also setting your brand’s tone.

Plus, the Divi Builder also lets you add custom fonts and all Google fonts right into it.

recently used divi fonts in divi builder

A builder should have multiple font-weight choices, and the ability to customize the font with its weight, for each Heading Level Manually.

So, all your headings are uniformly customized according to your website’s design and user interface.

Divi Shape Dividers

Another new option that comes along is Divi Shape Dividers. They give you the ability to transform the look of all your sections, to further add elegance to your designs.

There are 26 different Divi Shapes giving stunning effects on both, above and below every section of a webpage.

Divi shape dividers

Every shape is built using SVG. This means the shapes can be scaled without having to worry about quality loss or website performance.

Plus, you can also resize them according to other screen sizes; tablet and mobile.

Similarly, you can apply the same principle and create beautiful dividers. Let me show you some of the Divi divider examples I could think of.

divi divider examples
Divi Divider Examples

There are still dozens of shapes available in the Divi Builder. Plus, you can always apply some animations to make these dividers feel real.

Divi’s Transformation Effects

This super cool feature of Divi will let you move different elements, scale them from top to bottom, and even rotate them in three different axes.

What once needed a powerful designing tool like Photoshop, can now be done with a few clicks, visually.

This does save you a lot of time, effort and money, in terms of website designing.

using Divi transformation to create great SVG graphics tranformation

How do I use Divi Transform?

To achieve the desired effect, simply go to the Transform Section, under the Design Tab. This tab is present for almost all Divi modules.

For example, using Divi scroll effects for elements transforming to form an animation, while the user scrolls down a web page.

What are the Divi Transform Possibilities?

  • You can Scale any module up or down, letting you adjust an element’s overall size
  • The Transform Control lets you move elements in any direction without the need to worry about other parts of your web page
  • As well as the Transform Origin helps you to change the position of transformed elements.
  • Rotation Controls allow you to rotate the element in three different axes for a complete range of dimensional rotation. Combine rotations to get a super cool design effect
  • The Divi Transform User Interface also lets you to Skew an element, just in-case you need to design something while unlocking its aspect ratio.

Best part is that all of this happens using CSS, causing no impact on the load time for any given asset.

Divi Backgrounds

The Divi Background Shapes offer four options to insert media that go very good with different sections of your website. Plus, adding a cool design feeling for your site visitors. Background Color, Gradient, Background Image, and Background Video can be easily added via Divi’s Visual Builder.

divi backgrounds and parallax effects

Set the size, position, and repetition for each and every Background Image.

In addition, the Divi Background feature also comes with Parallax Effect to give that cool effect on your site’s hero area.

Box Shadow Effects

Each and every module on Divi that creates a simple 2d shape like a button, contact form, image, etc, can be perfected in design, by applying Divi Box Shadow Effects.

All the box shadow controls for the modules are right there in the Divi Builder. Just go to the Design tab and look for Box Shadow settings.

There are a total of 7 box shadow presets with Horizontal & Vertical positioning and Spread & Blur strength settings.

Create separate box shadow presets for all the buttons, images, gallery sections, price charts, and use them throughout your website with one single click. Elegance with efficiency.

Text Shadow Effects

Divi Text Shadow Effects lets you add amazing shadow effects to all your text elements like Headings, plain text, image captions, text in other modules like circle counters, price tables, call to action buttons.

Divi text shadow effects

Just like box shadow, the Divi Builder offers 5 text shadow presets. For further customization, you also get settings like horizontal & vertical length, color, blur strength settings, etc.

With Divi text shadow effects, you can create multiple possibilities to showcase great designs on your website.

Divi Animations

This is one of the coolest features you get with this theme, making me want to share it in this Divi theme review.

A little animation on any static page would really excite your readers, making them stay for a longer time on your website.

With Divi you can animate any row or section using 7 different animation styles like Fade, Slide, Zoom, Bounce, Flip, Fold, and Roll.

How to add an animation in Divi Theme?

For adding Divi Animation, you’ll need to hit the plus sign on a row or a section. From the Section settings, go to the Design Tab and then scroll all the way down to find Animation options.

Select the animation of your choice, manually perform the fine tuning settings, and your Divi animation is ready to go.

Are the Divi Animations Fully Customizable?

  • Animation Direction – Allows you to set different directional queues like top, bottom, left, and right.
  • Animation Duration – All the animations are set to a duration of 1 second, by default. But, you can set the speed according to your requirements.
  • Animation Repeat – Repetition of any animation is always set to 1 (i.e. once). However, a change can be made in-case you’d wanted to draw your visitor’s attention.
  • Animation Delay – Any animation automatically starts playing as soon as you scroll to the location of the element on your web page. Delays can help you achieve an increase in time before the animation starts playing while you’ve still reached the element on your screen.
  • Animation Intensity – This setting is for getting a snappy or subtle look animation. Divi has made it simple, just slide the bar and keep your appropriate settings.
  • Animation Starting Opacity – If you ever wondered how would you reduce a fading effect on an animation, then this setting can get the job done for you. All animations fade in from a starting opacity of 0, by default. Increase the percentage to get your optimum effect.
  • Animation Speed Curve – There are 5 different speed curves, each of which gives a different look to your animation.

In addition to the animation styles and fine tuning settings, you also get a special slider called, Intensity Slider. This slider is responsible for perfecting those subtle and strong animations.

Divi Custom Header & Footer

The Divi theme comes with a default header and footer template that applies to your entire site. If you’d like to create custom headers and footers, hit the Divi Theme Builder section.

From the Divi version 4.0, the Divi Theme Builder has got an interface for itself, where you can easily create custom headers and footers, adjust according to content area, and apply it to different parts of your website.

For example, you can create a custom header for a specific category page, merge the header with a page hero on single blog posts, or make sticky headers for single product pages.

There are plenty of customization options available.

Custom Blogs In Divi

The best part of purchasing the Divi Theme is that it does not only come with a page builder but you also get a theme builder.

That’s right. The Divi Theme Builder is so much more powerful than any other page builder available for WordPress. 

creating custom header, footer, blog and archive pages using divi theme builder

Just like how you’d create a Divi custom header and footer, you can similarly create a body.

Meaning, create a custom Divi blog posts template for the content part through the theme builder. Build it from scratch, choose a layout, or simply clone an existing page.

The same applies to category pages, 404 pages, and even author pages.

applying custom header and footer to specific pagesin the Divi theme builder

Looking at the variety of options to choose from, Divi has given all the power to the website owner. Create a template for any type of page – be it a Blog Page, Category Page, or any type of Archive Pages.

Wireframe View In Divi

Divi has this great Wireframe mode built into the Visual Builder that allows you create block based pages and posts, showing you exactly where each and every element is placed.

Plus, switching back and forth to different viewing modes makes it so easy to instantly make changes to your pages or posts. This really gives you an advantage over time, helping you redesign instantly.

divi wireframe view
Divi Wireframe View

The above image is a wireframe view of the Hero Section created on one of my website’s home pages. This way I know what all I’ve created and can make further changes if there is a need to.


Marketing Tools In Divi

With all the different marketing tools available in the Divi theme, one does not need to get any further tools or plugins, at least for starters.

For example, I am talking about a Divi Leads, built-in Email Opt Divi module, pricing table module, a specific Email Pop up plugin- Bloom, and a social sharing plugin- Monarch.

With built-in tools like Email Plugin, Split Testing, Pricing Tables, and Social Following Plugin you can analyze your content, design and the overall look and feel of your entire website.

Analyze how each page performs, see which landing page converts better, figure out what works best and what doesn’t.

The Divi Bloom Plugin

Bloom is an Email Pop Up plugin that is offered when you buy the Divi Theme.

It is an email opt-in plugin that helps you in growing your email list. Giving you all the tools you need that turn your visitors into customers. 

It is rightly said that email marketing is so powerful that it can show you 20X more engagement than any other form of content.

Bloom gives you the privilege to target or exclude specific posts or pages, while allowing you to display unique offers based on visitor’s location. Following, is an image of the bloom dashboard showing how you can set active and inactive options.

divi bloom dashboard
Bloom Dashboard

To add Bloom into a Divi website, simply look for Bloom Widget on the left and drag it to the area you need it. Once added you will be prompted to choose from the bottom 6 opt-in forms.

Bloom 6 opt-in pop-up locations
Bloom Opt-ins

Now you see that Bloom comes with enough opt-in options that can easily turn your website visitors into followers and customers.

Use Bloom To Your Advantage

Take a look at how Bloom can help in achieving your business goals.

Bloom Pop Ups Activity & Use
Automatic Fly in popupPreferred Timed Delay – Use a fly-in to trigger your visitors who loved reading your content
Content Opt-in popupEnd of Post – Give your readers the chance to opt-in for better content in their email
Unlock Content  Opt-in popupAfter Defined Percentage of Scrolling – Let users opt-in for unlocking the remaining part of the content
In Line Opt-in popupAfter Commenting – Create an in-line opt-in right below the user’s comment
Bloom Content Opt-in PopupAfter Purchasing – Use the opt-in method for users who have purchased your products
Fly-in Optin popupAfter Page Inactivity – The automatic pop-up will be of great use in this case
Bloom Opt-in options in most used cases

Bloom also connects to several email marketing software like MailChimp, Aweber, GetResponse, SendInBlue, MailPoet, etc.

Divi Pricing Tables

If your website offers a paid product or a service, then a clear and concise pricing table is one of the essential thing to have.

A pricing table clearly tells your customers what they will get for the money they spend. Divi Price Table Module accommodates four pricing columns per row. 

Each column in the table comes with a variety of options like creating Horizontal Pricing Modules, highlighting more than one pricing column, etc.

divi pricing tables - divi theme review
Divi Price Table

Every Divi price table is mobile responsive. One can even further design their sales page by integrating the Divi monthly/yearly pricing toggle switch that looks and works great.

Divi Monarch Plugin

Monarch is a social sharing plugin that comes along with the Divi theme. Elegant Themes have bundled this premium plugin together with the theme and the Divi Builder.

It is essentially built to give your pages and posts more shares, likes and followers on social media networks like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.

It integrates methods like social sharing sidebars, floating social sharing buttons, pop-ups, above and below content buttons, etc.

Monarch gives you the ability to harness the power of social media effectively. It allows more than 20 different social sharing networks to showcase on your website.

So that your visitors can easily share your content on their profiles. Which in turn brings more engagement to your website.

divi monarch social sharing networks
Monarch Social Sharing Options

With 5 different sharing locations, Monarch really gives you the edge over social sharing.

All the social sharing icons in Monarch are customizable and mobile responsive. You get 3 button shapes, 5 sidebar button hover effects, and 4 inline buttons hover effects

Apply any design that suits your theme.

Monarch 5 social sharing locations

If you really want your icons to match the color of your theme, Monarch allows you to pick and change the Native color of any network, to your own color preference.

Moreover, Monarch gives you the ability to mention Social Network names with a total number of shares and/or follow counts.

The settings that you’ve created are easily exportable. This comes in handy when you have multiple websites but need to configure the same settings on other sites. Doing this saves a lot of time. 

This is like a summarized Monarch plugin review, but I’m really looking forward to it.

Divi Leads – Split Testing Tool

The Divi Split Testing tool allows website owners to create different versions of their webpages and broadcast them to their visitors. 

The feature is built into the Divi theme.

It includes testing headlines, colors, modules, columned rows, buttons, any module as such.

This happens in a round-robin style. Say if you’ve made 4 different headlines that you wanted to test. Each unique visitor (with a unique IP address) will see only one headline until the fourth headline is seen by the fourth unique visitor, then the loop resets.

Split testing experiement gives you a clear picture of what will work and what won’t. This is the most practical way of making changes on the go and tracking their outcomes, for using the best performing variation.

divi lead generation - split testing tool

To explain in brief;

You make different variations of your webpages, define the goal, view complete analysis of the test, and make an informed decision.

We all want a good performing website. But wait, what do we mean by that?

A website that brings in more visitors, has a minimum bounce rate, users keep on coming to gain more information. If it’s a website that sells a product or a service then I’d always want visitors to convert into customers and become loyal followers.

For all of the above, practical and useful public feedback is very important. It’s like half of your work is almost done.Tools like Divi leads often have a monthly or an annual subscription fee, but you get this for free with the Divi theme.


Divi Languages Support

Divi is a multilingual theme and is fully translatable into 32 different languages. Divi also supports RTL languages.Enable RTL language, and Divi will automatically switch to RTL mode.

Divi fully translatable into 32 languages

Unlike other themes, with Divi, the Divi Builder interface, form fields, and descriptions also get translated. Even the information of rows, columns, sections, modules under the Wireframe mode get translated.


Divi Marketplace – Free & Paid

The Divi marketplace is a depot where third party Divi modules, layout, child themes, and other Divi plugins are stored.

It is hosted by Elegant Themes, where Divi developers or designers can easily upload their creations, making them available to the Divi community of users.

The marketplace has free and paid products. Pick the one that is best needed for your website.

Note:- Drag the slider to $0 for viewing all free products on the Divi Marketplace.

Divi marketplace

The Divi marketplace comes in handy for new website owners, who would like to develop a complete website on their own, without writing a single piece of code.

All products are met to the highest standards and are fully compatible with the Divi theme. Elegant Themes ensures the quality of code, and design by testing the products before putting them on the marketplace.

All products come with a 30-day refund policy. Therefore, you have nothing to lose.

Moreover, if you are a developer, Divi marketplace allows you to sell your products giving you 70% on sale.


Divi Support and Theme Documentation

To access the Divi support center, go to Divi >> Support Center, and scroll down to Elegant Theme Support.

From there, you have to toggle Remote Access. By enabling Divi remote access, you are giving Divi’s technical support team access to your site’s dashboard. This feature gets automatically disabled after 4 days.

divi support
Divi Support System – Remote Access

In case you are not satisfied with it, you can also enable the Activate Full Admin Privileges option. This option grants full access to Divi’s support team.

Nevertheless, the best thing I’ve liked about their resources is that they are deep and clear. So clear that you wouldn’t need to raise a support ticket if you get stuck somewhere (in most cases).

Plus, they also offer 24/7 chat support and instantly direct you to raise a support ticket, if the problem needs special attention.

Another mode of support you get is via their Facebook groups. Elegant Themes Facebook Group and the Divi Theme Users Facebook Group are the two official groups which are active with multiple posts per week.

When it comes to buying a premium theme, Support and Documentation are listed as one of my most important parameters. Therefore, it would not be recommended to complete this Divi theme review without covering them.

Divi theme and page builder documentation

Divi documentation is huge with lots of articles, mostly based on “How To” tutorials. Elegant Themes have created separate documentation categories for Divi Theme, Divi Builder, Extra Theme, Bloom Plugin, and Monarch Plugin.

But, most of the helpful tutorials are based on Divi Theme and Divi Builder.

Plus, there is an official YouTube channel, in case you would like to visually understand.


Divi Pricing

There isn’t a doubt that this product is of high standard, otherwise you wouldn’t be seeing more than 2.2 million websites on the Internet, powered by the Divi theme.

The Divi pricing is pretty straightforward. It offers two different premium versions. One that is an annual subscription, and another is a lifetime access.
