It’s no secret that Divi is one of the most popular WordPress themes in the world. It’s popular among beginners and professionals alike. As WordPress users and professionals it’s the theme we recommend the most. In this article we want to show why we recommend it and what makes it the theme of choice among so many WordPress users. We’ll take a close look at the features of Divi and answer the question, Why should I use Divi?
All Purpose Theme
Divi is an all-purpose theme that’s virtually unlimited in the types of websites it can build. Here’s a look at some of its most prominent features.
Drag and Drop Builder
The key feature of Divi is its drag and drop builder. Building layouts is easy and fast, making it ideal to create mockups and wireframes, prototyping a design, and creating the website itself. Build from the frontend or backend. The builder is intuitive. It’s easy to learn and can be used by non-developers to create amazing websites. Developers can customize it with code.
Tons of modules are included to add features such as Google Maps, contact forms, blurbs, countdown timers, sliders, toggle, portfolio, gallery, pricing tables, call to action, buttons, person, shop, social follow, tabs, and lots more. The modules can be customized with standard settings or enhanced with CSS.
Divi includes lots of premade layouts to help you get started. Layouts include blogs, shops, homepages, landing pages, splash page, about pages, maintenance, coming soon, project, portfolio, contact, case studies, creative agency, product features, and more. You can also create your own layouts and upload layouts that others have created.
Customize the site’s options and styles including typography, headers, footers, backgrounds, buttons, blog posts, mobile styles, layout, etc. Perform hundreds of intuitive customizations and see the results in real time. View your site as desktop, tablet, or phone.
Perform a/b tests to improve your site’s conversions. See stats on each test to help you choose the best design. This is great for calls to action, sign up forms, or anything you want readers to click on.
Divi’s Role System gives you complete control over who has access to what in the Divi Builder. This is great for protecting your sharp design from anyone with access to the backend.
Divi includes three widgets: About Me, Adsense, and Advertisement. The advertisement widget is especially useful as it simplifies adding images and links, and gives you options to use relative image paths and open ads in a new window. Add new widget areas with the creation tool and then choose these areas within the Divi Builder for any page or post.
Divi’s been translated into over 30 languages. This includes the Divi Builder, front-end elements, interface, form fields, descriptions, and it even includes RTL (right-to-left). When you choose an RTL language the Divi Builder moves all of the buttons to the right side to match.
Child Themes and Layouts
There are lots of professionally designed child themes available for Divi. Child themes provide the look, feel, and features you need for a custom website without having to create it yourself. They’re available in practically any field for any purpose including consulting, restaurants, photography, health, education, eCommerce, and lots more. Child themes can be customized just like Divi and some even provide new customizations.
Layouts are cheaper and don’t require you to change your entire website. They’re a great place to start with a new design. See our child themes and layouts in the Superfly store.
