Elegant Themes Divi Review
Divi is one of the most popular WordPress themes on the market. As Elegant Themes’ flagship product, Divi comes packed full of features, like high-quality graphics, responsive layouts, and a powerful, easy-to-use page builder that affords users nearly limitless possibility.
This is an impressive multipurpose theme that requires minimal coding or technical skills. The fact that anyone – and I mean anyone – can build beautiful websites using the Divi builder.
In this article, we will cover a bit of background on Elegant’s Divi theme, take a look at some of its powerful features, and finish with a quick rundown of pricing and a few thoughts to keep in mind before purchasing the theme.
What is Divi?
As I mentioned above, it is the flagship product from Elegant themes, one of the biggest independent WordPress theme makers. It’s difficult to compare to other WordPress themes, because Divi is sooo. Much. More.
Divi is like a mega theme. It comes with tons of pre-made layouts and modules, as well as a powerful page builder that offers users the ability to design just about any website imaginable from a landing page for your business to blogs and even ecommerce site.
One of the best things about it, is that it was created for beginners and casual users, so anyone can use it.
Even the download process is a breeze. Simply purchase a subscription to the Elegant Themes product line (more on pricing later!) and download the Divi ZIP file. Simply download the ZIP file and install through your WordPress dashboard and activate it.
Once you have the theme activated, simply create a new page, import a pre-made layout or make one from scratch, and you’re set!
One quick note: Although the builder is rather intuitive, there is still a slight learning curve. So, if you’re just starting out, I suggest working with a pre-made layout first. Import the pre-made layout and modify it until you get the hang of how the builder works. Once you’re comfortable with it, try creating your own row, section, or page.
As mentioned previously, it comes with tons of features right out of the box! This is just a few of my favorite features include:
Intuitive front-end customization
Easy text editing (click-to-type)
Access to a vast library of premade layouts, modules. And content elements
The option to save and export your favorite layouts or create your own
Preview what your page looks like on desktop, tablet, and mobile
Split-testing module – allows you to compare how two different blocks perform
Elegant themes also offers fantastic customer support. If you’re looking for new ideas for layouts or just want to learn the ropes of web design, the people over at Elegant have curated an immense collection of web design tutorials (they update their tutorials library pretty frequently).
Unlike other premium WordPress themes, you cannot simply purchase the Divi theme. You basically buy access to the entire Elegant theme system, themes, plugins, and updates.
Currently, Elegant themes is offering two different purchase options. The first is a yearly subscription of $89 / year. The second options is a one-time purchase of $249; this gives you lifetime access to all the features in the yearly subscription.
You can always start with the less expensive yearly subscription and switch to the one-time-payment option later if you decide you enjoy using the theme.
Choosing between Elegant’s pricing packages ultimately comes down to your personal preferences, needs, and budget.
The great thing about Divi is its flexibility, so even if you decide to change the direction of your site years down the line, you can use the same theme. Both pricing plans allow you to use it on unlimited websites, which makes Divi a great investment.
Furthermore, it is intuitive and easy-to-use, which means you won’t need to code anything yourself or bother hiring a website designer.
Divi is the best multipurpose theme available on the market. It’s intuitive drag-and-drop page building tools allow users to create beautiful website without writing a single line of code. Elegant’s pre-made layouts make it easy for beginners to take their websites to the next level.
