Welcome to the blog... great articles on the Divi themeVideos, examples, links and lots of other information about the Divi drag and drop pagebuilder theme - the theme to beat in 2014
There was a time when I used to produce website layouts using Photoshop and mount them on A3 black card to present to the client.
Once the client was happy with the layout, the whole thing had to be reproduced using html and styled with CSS.
Thankfully those days are long gone and now I just open Divi and start adding content.
It’s quicker, it’s more versatile and if you use the Visual Builder, the whole process is much more creative and satisfying.
But no matter how fast Divi allows you to create content, sometimes you lack the time or the creative inspiration to get moving on a project and that’s when premade Divi layouts come to your rescue.
In this post I’m going to look at two sources of premium Divi layouts and one free source, so that next time you’re running out of time and you have a client breathing down your neck… you’ll know where to go.
When Divi was released in December 2013, it quickly became the premier WordPress drag and drop Page Builder theme and it’s maintained that position through updates, improvements and cutting-edge innovation.
Perhaps the biggest leap forward was the release of Divi 3.0 with it’s all new Visual Builder, which allowed you to work on the front-end of your website… on the actual pages!
Suddenly it felt as though creating content with WordPress had been reinvented.
You still had the option to work in your WordPress dashboard and create content using the standard Backend Divi Builder but now you could also work on the actual page and create content using the Visual Builder.
The one thing that you couldn’t do was use the Backend Builder and the Visual builder at the same time… until now that is!
In this post I’ll look at the new Divi Builder sync feature, which allows you to work on multiple instances of the builder in different tabs and I’ll also review some of the new and improved saving and backup features.
The Visual Builder was added to the Divi theme five months ago, and it changed overnight the way people create and edit their pages.
No more editing in the WordPress backend, saving changes and then refreshing the frontend before you could see what your changes actually looked like.
The Visual Builder allows you to work on the frontend of your site, on the actual page.
You can make your edits and changes whilst looking at the page and see the results of those changes instantly.
And now folks, the power of the Visual Builder has been added to the Divi Builder plugin 2.0.
That means that whatever WordPress theme you are using, you can bring on-page editing to your site.
In this post, I’ll look at the features of the Divi Builder plugin 2.0 with particular emphasis on the Visual Builder.
To celebrate the release of the Divi Builder plugin 2.0, Elegant Themes have announced a flash sale with discounts of up to 20% on both new accounts and account upgrades.
My next post will go into detail about the Divi Builder plugin 2.0 but this post will explain what the discounts are and where you can sign up.
These discounts are time limited so don’t miss out, join or upgrade now.
There are three things that you must have to create and promote a successful website.
You need a great looking modern responsive website that will grab and hold your visitors’ attention.
You need to simplify the process for your visitors to sign up to your email list, newsletter and special promotions.
And you need to make it easy for both you and your visitors to promote your content via social media.
When you sign up with Elegant Themes you get access to all of the above:
You get the Divi theme to create your website without touching a single line of code, you get the Bloom email opt-in and lead generation plugin to grow that list and you get the Monarch social media sharing plugin to promote, promote, promote.
I use all three on this website and in this post, I’ll explain what each one is, what it does and how to use them in combination.
