The hot news in the Divi community is that when Divi 3.0 is released, it will have a “front-end page builder”, which… “will live alongside the current “backend” version of the builder, and the two experiences will be completely cohesive and interchangeable”.
As you can imagine, this is a pretty big project and it’s going to take some time to finish. But to help ease your waiting pain Elegant Themes have started their “100 day Countdown to Divi 3.0” in which they will be publishing a post a day for 100 days and giving away Divi Library Packs and Extensions and sharing Divi Nation Podcasts and lots and lots of Divi Tips & Tricks.
In this post I’ll give a brief summary of what’s covered in each of the “countdown day posts” and to save you time and effort I’ve covered a block of ten days.
I’ve also added links to the full blog posts so that you can read them in full… and download all those free Divi goodies.

Brace yourself, it’s Day 10 of the Divi 100 Marathon.
Today we’re going to take a look at five landing pages, which have been built with Divi and that have all the right ingredients for high conversion rates.
