The Best Divi Plugins You Should Be Using in 2020

Frequently Asked Questions

Divi is an incredibly popular WordPress theme with many thousands of active users. It has a range of prebuilt websites and its own drag and drop page builder, Divi Builder, designed to let you build amazing websites with the minimum of fuss. But did you know that you can also extend the capabilities of this popular with 100s of 3rd-party Divi plugins?

 

Divi plugins allow you to add important features to the theme family and page builder. It’s a bit like WordPress in that respect. The core system has a lot of features but plenty more power and utility comes with plugins.

Some of those plugins are made by Elegant Themes, the people behind Divi. Others are developed by third-party developers. Both are viable ways of accessing these plugins, although there can be price variations between each option.

Divi is already packed full of features but the ability to add more just makes it even more compelling as a website theme.

This article is going to list 17 of the best Divi plugins available right now. They have been tried, tested and are used frequently by the team here and by web designers who spend a lot of time working with Divi.

What are Divi plugins and extensions?

Divi plugins and extensions work in much the same way as standard WordPress plugins. They install into WordPress and work alongside Divi to add features, optimize existing features and add essential tools you might need while developing a theme for your own use.

Divi plugins can be free or premium and come in all shapes and sizes.

We have scoured all the Divi plugins and extensions available, took suggestions from developers and asked everyone we know who works with Divi what they use.

We then spent many hours installing, using and testing each to come up with the most usable, flexible and powerful plugins.

This list is the result.

Installing a Divi Plugin

Divi Builder installed like any other WordPress plugin. You will need to download it from the website once purchased rather than use the WordPress Plugins menu though. Other Divi plugins can be accessed from that menu.

  1. Download your Divi theme and Divi Builder to your computer.
  2. Open the folder and navigate to divi-builder.zip.
  3. Log into your WordPress website.
  4. Select Plugins and Add New from the left menu of the WordPress dashboard.
  5. Select Upload Plugin and select divi-builder.zip.
  6. Select Install Now and let the process complete.
  7. Select Activate once the option becomes available.

You should now see a new menu on the left called Divi. Select this to access your new tools!

Once you have Divi Builder installed, you can now install any extra plugins you may have purchased. If you install those before, you may not see the menu item appear or the tools until Divi Builder is present.

Updating a Plugin

Updating a Divi plugin uses the same process as all WordPress plugins. Once an update is released, WordPress is notified and will ask you to update it when you next log in.

  1. Select the Update prompt from the top of the WordPress Dashboard or use Plugins from the left menu.
  2. Check the box next to every plugin that needs an update.
  3. Select Update from the drop down box at the top.

Alternatively, you can select the Update text link under individual plugins to perform the update one at a time. 

Either way, once the update is complete, the prompt to update will disappear.

The cost of Divi plugins depends entirely on where you buy them. Some are more expensive on the developer’s website than if bought directly from Elegant Themes. Others vice versa. Like any buying decision, check pricing as much as possible and buy the cheapest. As long as you buy from a legitimate source, you should be fine!

Wrapping Up

Those are what we think are the best Divi plugins in 2020. Each offers something a little different and would be ideal in different situations. Some are specifically to add features to an individual website while others are so developers can add features to customer websites.

Each is well worth the cost and offers a lot more than the price might imply.

We ended up keeping a couple of the plugins we were testing as we liked them so much. That doesn’t happen considering just how many WordPress plugins we test here at CollectiveRay. That’s how good they are!
