Divi Theme is the smartest, most flexible theme in our collection. With Divi, the sky’s the limit. Divi is powered by the Divi Builder, an insanely fast and incredibly intuitive front end editor like nothing you have seen before. It will change the way you build websites forever.
When people say Divi, many times they don’t realize they are referring to 2 separate things. The Divi Theme & the Divi Builder. While you would only use the Divi Theme with the Divi Builder, you certainly can use the Divi Builder with any WordPress theme.
First, the Divi Theme is nice, but I find it basic. However, with Divi 4, your dependence on the Divi Theme is minimal as you can now create everything in the Divi Builder.
The Divi Builder is the most advanced page builder that I have ever used for WordPress. It has more options, more flexibility then all the others combined. In practical usage, I think its completely overkill and overwhelming at first, in a bad way.
I think they want to accommodate their users and in this have given too many options versus making some decisions for their users. So just be prepared.
Divi Builder is a shortcode based builder. Most people already know this, I don’t like it, but you will have to decide for yourself whether that is a big deal or not. My issue with it is Elegant Themes could easily solve the problem, but they haven’t.
As far as templates go, there are a TON of them, again more then all the other page builders combined. They keep making them because they sell, but I don’t find them that practical or useful. Sure they are beautiful, but they are more for learning purposes versus practical usage.
Many people are attracted to Divi because they are the only WordPress page builder that offers a lifetime price, which will save you a ton of money over time.
The fourth theme builder pack comes with more unique templates that will help automate the way you add products, build posts, and create new category pages. The design includes beautiful abstract shape backgrounds that bring vibrant color to page templates.
The global header includes an effectively large “contact us” button. The 404 template is creative and clever. And the product and category templates are refreshingly unique. I’m sure this one will come in handy for a future Divi project!
