Why We Like the Divi Theme
Divi has a great range of features including ease-of-use, flexibility and ongoing support. This helps to make it the most popular WordPress theme ever. The price is competitive, it is kept up-to-date, and documentation is very good. The well-designed free page layouts that come with it are a huge bonus. Read on for details…
What is Divi?
Divi is a premium WordPress Theme that allows users to build websites using a visual drag-and-drop page builder so you don’t have to use or understand code. Divi was first released in 2013 by the design company Elegant Themes.
Divi comes with 46 pre-made modules that include website elements such as text boxes, images, accordions, number counters, image sliders, contact forms, and shops. Every element within Divi can be customised. There are settings in the sections, rows and modules, and also in the Theme Customiser and the Module Customiser.
Because its a visual page builder it makes it easy to build websites without the need to know any code such as HTML, CSS or PHP. Divi also has the flexibility for code experts to customise as much as they could want.
Divi comes with hundreds of free pre-made layout templates that are well-designed and include copyright-free images. It is easy to change the colour scheme and images to your own, and to insert your own text. You can also re-arrange the order of the sections, combine them with sections from other templates, and fully customise the design using the visual builder.
Layout Template Examples
Here are a few examples of Divi’s layout template landing pages. The template title does not reflect the final content, which can be anything you choose. For example Copywriter here has been changed to an energy consultant example.
Each template design includes several pages such as About, Contact, Shop, Landing Page. All pictures are holding images so you can swop them out with your own; the same with the colour schemes, and with the module sections.
Everything can be changed. Essentially, layout templates are simply starting points.
