In my Divi Theme Review, I’ll outline some of the positive features and drawbacks of Divi. First and foremost, the builder is relatively intuitive and easy to use. While you’ll probably need a little time to get used to it, the templates are easy to deploy and showcase the theme’s features. Ultimately, I’ll recommend Divi to those who need a high-end website builder and want a quick implementation process.
Divi’s proprietary page builder
If you’re new to website building, the proprietary page builder in Divi will be a welcome addition. Unlike a block editor, which has many limitations and few customization options, Divi’s page builder offers a virtually limitless amount of customization. Divi’s features range from simple blog designs to complex online stores and company websites. The theme also comes with over 1,900 ready-made layouts. You can save and export layouts as well.
It’s difficult to switch to a code editor
If you are using the Divi theme for your website, you will probably find it hard to switch to a code editor. The interface for Divi is very proprietary, and it feels like an afterthought, but it does make editing content easier. It also blocks the switch to the WordPress code editor, which is a useful feature for WordPress users. If you plan to use a code editor to edit your website, you should use another WordPress theme, such as a child theme.
When you install a Divi Theme on your website, you might notice that it’s slow. First of all, the theme’s layout isn’t always intuitive. If you’ve been using Divi for a while, you may have noticed that some of the pages don’t load very fast. If this is happening, it’s worth checking your server and website’s settings. If possible, upgrade to a faster PHP version. Alternatively, you can try upgrading your hosting company to cloud hosting and using a good cache plugin. Finally, you should upgrade to a modern theme like PHP 8.0 or PHP 7.4 if you’re experiencing problems.
The price of a Divi Theme depends on the number of licenses you need and how much you’re willing to pay for them. It’s usually a lot cheaper to buy a lifetime license than to purchase a single license. Depending on the number of sites you’d like to run, the cost may range from $89 to EUR76. Alternatively, you can pay just $89 and get access to all of Divi’s premium features
