The first post on a new website built using the Divi theme and dedicated to the Divi theme has to be about the feature that gives Divi its power and makes it unique, the Divi Builder. The Divi Builder allows you to create stunning layouts by dragging and dropping Divi’s building blocks into whatever order you like… without touching a single line of code.
Divi’s building blocks are called Sections, Rows, Columns and Modules.
Sections, Rows and Columns work together to break your pages into visually separate areas and Modules allow you to add functionality such as contact forms, sliders etc.
Using these building blocks in combination allows you to create a limitless number of page layouts and to change them as easily as you created them.
Create Beautiful Layouts with Ease and Control
Divi is a unique theme in our collection. Differing from every other Elegant Theme, Divi is built on a page builder platform that we designed and developed from the ground up.
Using Divi’s drag and drop builder you can create beautiful layouts with ease and control over every part of your site.
The builder uses three main building blocks: Sections, Rows, and Modules. Using these things in unison allows you to create a countless amount of page layouts. Elegant Themes
Building your pages with the Divi Builder using Sections, Rows and Modules
This is the first website I’ve built using the Divi theme and it’s been an absolute joy.
One of the things that I noticed along the way is the amount of “how to” information Elegant Themes has released in order to smooth out the bumps on that learning curve including: documentation, screenshots and lots and lots of top drawer videos.
This video is a complete introduction to the Divi theme builder. It explains Sections, Rows, Columns and Modules and shows you how to use each to create a fully customised page in minutes. The only limitation on what you can produce, is your imagination.
The driving force behind Divi is the Divi drag and drop page builder with its various building blocks, Sections, Rows, Columns and Modules.
Here’s a short description of each in the order that you add them:
- Add Sections – Sections are used to create the top-level areas in your website and have a blue tag on the side.
- Add Rows – Rows have a green side tag and sit inside Sections. You can place any number of Rows in a Section and there are many different Row types to choose from.
- Add Columns – Columns break the Rows into vertical areas in the proportions that you choose. These are the areas into which you add Modules.
- Add Modules – Modules are the visual elements that make up your website such as text, graphics, contact forms, call to action etc. Every Divi Module can fit into any Column width and all Modules are fully responsive.
When I started building pages with Divi I had to keep reminding myself about the various elements, but after creating a few pages you forget about the names of the building blocks and the process becomes almost automatic and very very quick.
The Power of the Awesome Divi Builder
The Divi Builder was made with user experience at the forefront of its priorities. The builder transforms elements into visual building blocks, allowing anyone to understand and edit the structure of their page without touching a single line of code.
There are no limitations as to how builder elements can be customizations and arranged, making Divi the most flexible theme we have ever created. Divi will change the way you build websites forever. Elegant Themes
