Divi, brought to you by Elegant Themes, is one of the most well-known and popular multipurpose themes in the market to date. It boasts having everything you need to build a beautiful website from the ground up, thanks to the built-in visual page builder. And with demo content for industries of all kinds, it would seem this theme really does have everything you’d need to launch a WordPress site.
But does it live up to all the standands?
Today we’re going to move in and check out everything that Divi has to offer when it comes to features and price so you can see for yourself. And as an added bonus, we’re going to run some speed tests on Divi for those that are worried a multipurpose theme might drag down their site’s speed and performance.
Okey!!, let’s start now.
Divi is the a creation of Elegant Themes and comes as part of an Elegant Themes membership. With your membership, you have access to two themes, Divi and Extra. You also get the social share plugin Monarch and the email opt-in and lead generation plugin Bloom.
The creators behind Divi claim that Bloom is more than just a WordPress theme; instead it’s a powerful website building platform that replaces the default WordPress editor (that includes Gutenberg). But more than that, despite its multipurpose uses, Divi is built with beginners in mind.
You don’t have to have any technical, coding, development, or web design skills to build a stunning WordPress site using Divi. Adding to that, there’s no complicated set up either. All you have to do is install and activate the theme like you would any other WordPress theme. From there you can start building with ease.
The frontend customization functionality gives you a real-time live preview of your website as you make changes. And because Divi doesn’t place limits on industry, design, or layouts, it can honestly be called a multipurpose theme.
Last but not least, Divi comes with an exclusive page builder – Divi Builder – which is super convenient. You no longer have to invest in a page builder and a separate WordPress theme when launching a website.
But that’s not all Divi theme has to offer.
