Divi 4.0 Theme and Divi Theme Builder

Divi 4.0 has just been released! We have just updated this post to reflect the new features which are now available. You might want to check out the below post announcing the release of next major version of this theme.

Check out the Divi 4 Release Post

The big thing about this is the brand new Divi Theme Builder. 

The Theme Builder takes the power of the built-in page builder and extends it to all areas of building a websites, allowing you to build custom headers, footers, category pages, product templates, blog post templates, 404 pages and more.

Essentially, you can customize to your liking any part of any page.

What the new version has done is bring together some of Divi’s most important features, including the Dynamic Content and WooCommerce Modules, together with the amazing design power of the builder itself to give you complete control over your entire website.

Divi 3.0/4.0 Review

By now you probably know that the template/pagebuilder been out for a while, in fact, this is actually a Divi 3.0/4.0 review - that means that there have been many iterations before it.

This also explains the fact why this product is so refined and it might as well be the best WordPress product yet.

Let's discuss now a little bit the features we expect to see in this new iteration.

New in Divi 3.0: Major UI Overhaul

  • A new visual experience. Elegant Themes have been hard at work creating a new version of the Divi Builder plugin. Essentially, rather than having a backend version and a live version, the two will actually blend into one and the same thing. The live back-end editor will actually be showing the live version too.

    This means that you'll be designing a completely What You See is What You Get page. No need to switch back and forth between the live version and the backend version. With version 3.0, these are interchangeable.

 

Divi 3 Pagebuilder Frontend

  • Drag & drop + responsive. Of course, the next big thing is that rather than editing a visual representation, you'll be working on the actual live blocks. You'll be dragging the actual pieces of content. And of course, everything is still fully responsive.

 Responsive Editing

  • No refresh - instant visual updates. The new v3 Divi Builder is actually powered by React, and a new paradigm in real-time visual experiences, which ensures that anything you do is updated on the fly. You don't have to perform any page refreshes.
    Everything is in real-time! 

 

divi 3 pagebuilder

Since Divi 3.0’s release, these features have evolved quite a bit and have become more robust and powerful compared to their initial release. Then, on October 2019, Divi 4.0 was released and this introduced yet another huge update.

New in Divi 4.0: The Theme Builder

Divi 4.0’s highlight is the brand new theme builder. Using the very same page builder and modules you already know and love, you can customize all areas of your website. You can create custom header, footer and body layout templates.

Not only that, you can choose which post, page, category, etc. you want your custom templates applied to.

For example, you can create a custom template that will only apply on blog posts with a category of “special deals”, but exclude those with “limited offer”. So a blog post with “special deals” but also has “limited offer” category will not have your custom template applied.

We’ll explore this new feature further in the review. For now, let’s check out Divi’s interface!

User Interface

We are sure this is one of the most important factors that contribute towards deciding which tool you choose for building your website. The better the theme, the wider is the scope to present your content throughout the website.

This product is sleek, elegant, simple, clean and most importantly, a multi-purpose theme.

So no matter what business the website represents, proper justice will done to every element you are planning to present. 

Divi 3

 

It comes with an inbuilt page-builder that is super awesome and is super-easy to use, has a complete arsenal of ready-to-use Divi layouts, and is code-ready, even to be used professionally by anybody from novices to experienced web design users.

Inline Editor

Whether you want to edit a WordPress landing page you have created in the backend or (for the less tech-savvy users of your website) in the frontend, you can make use of the latest and greatest version of this great product from Elegant Themes.

For example, we do believe it's a great option if you plan to create a membership site - have a look here at the themes and plugins you could use.

Better yet, v 3.0 brings with itself, the Divi builder that we already mentioned earlier. This is one of the best theme-based WordPress page builders, we have come across so far. So good, it deserves some juicy, elaborate description, reserved all for itself. 

We have done that part too, in a later section of the review.

Customization Options

Visual Builder Customizable Interface

 

Version 3.0 offers you a simple theme customizer panel with innumerable customization possibilities. Every element on your WordPress page or post can be taken good care of, and tailored in a conversion-centric manner by using making optimum used of the customizable features.

New in 3.0: Divi builder plugin

 

 

Visual Builder elements, drag and drop, columns, etc,

We continue our review with eulogizing about how simply the WordPress page builder has been crafted.

Even if you just installed it all just a few minutes ago, this pagebuilder is dead easy. When you are going numb due to the huge number of layout and theme options but still opt to customize one of the WordPress themes and plugins your very own way, it would not take you more than 15 minutes to understand how the pagebuilder works.

Its drag and drop mechanism makes everything flow like breeze.

15 16 dragndrop

You can add sections and modules, remove them, replace them, clone them, drag them to where you want them to be, do just about any possible thing, you could hardly do with any other product. And all that, without the littlest coding endeavor.

add delete move

The Divi 3 Builder also offers its users a stunning range of customized page layouts. There are over 140+ pre-defined layout options for you to choose from. One click and you are done!

Switching from one layout to another, in case you just happened to think differently the next moment, is fairly easy.

choose layout

Just in case, you are picky enough not to still feel happy with all those pre-made page layouts, you can create one of your own and save it up for using it in the future. That way, keep adding layouts, and you could avoid a lot of repeated efforts for your future websites and pages.

Yet another surprise pops up, when you go to add columns. There is an option to add special columns!!! Yay! Bingo! So that way, you do not have to choose from the same boring 2-grid or 3-grid column structures!

specialty column

What’s the coolest part about it? When you do add a specialty column, it gets all colourful! Another example of superior user experience conceptualization!

There is a section for custom CSS, which you can use, to inject your own codes into the existing elements in the layouts. And that, my friend, would not break anything! :D

custom css

Best part, you would get an access to a whole gamut of 46 different content modules.

modules

Oh! Did we forget the ‘Split test’ feature? Any novice designer would know that benefits of split testing… The pagebuilder has obliged us by not forgetting the magic that split testing can bring about in deciding the success of any website in its newest version. 

split test

So there is this module that you just slipped in a particular section. Maybe, you just wanted to see how another content module would perform, if you replaced the former one with this one. The ‘Split test feature comes handy here. Right click and enable the ‘Split test’ tool. While you have your nose dug into the remaining of your webpage, the split test would keep running in the background and you will have your results in the stats section in no time.

We loved it!

I’ve installed Divi Theme, where is the Page Builder Plugin?

You should’ve been notified that the plugin will automatically deactivate if you have the theme, but in case you missed it, here’s why:

If you’re using the Divi or Extra (another Elegant Theme’s product) themes, you have no need for the plugin because they already have the plugin included in the theme itself.

So what’s the point of the page builder plugin then? That is to allow you to use the powerful page and theme builder features into any theme you want! Be it your own custom theme, another premium theme bought from somewhere else or even on the default twenty nineteen theme that comes preinstalled with WordPress.

No lock-in, you have total freedom! And yes, you still have that unlimited use license even for just the plugin only - this is one of the best things about Divi!

Frontend vs Backend

One of the greatest improvements between version 2 and 3 is that the Divi builder (or actually the user who is writing the pages) does not need to work in the backend.

Let's just think about this for a moment.

The beauty of a PageBuilder is its ability to construct pages on the fly no? Quickly dragging and dropping components to construct a page in no time at all. Yet, if you are in the backend of WordPress, the result is not going to be immediately visible to you. You'll have to update the page, reload the page you are building from the frontend.

More crucially though, is that in the backend you are guessing at what you are building. You can't really see the end result.

That's no longer the case with v 3. This is the beauty of Live Preview.

Adding Content

The real v3.0 difference: watch your blog / page as it's being built

We want to continue our v 3.0 review with the thing we feel is most special.

When you choose to work with the Divi builder plugin in the frontend, you can see your page or blog post being built right in front of you. You can see the result there and then - this is the Live Preview functionality. This is the real beauty and the real difference with the new version of the Divi builder from Elegant Themes.

This by itself makes Divi ever since v 3 the solution to go for.

Most of the users working with your website are not going to be fans of the backend. Even if you are familiar with WordPress, it's of course so much the better, if you can see exactly what you are building in real-time.

Here we are adjusting the Go to shop CTA button which we added in our Two Column (2/3 | 1/3) row.

Visual PageBuilder

 

Beneath the CTA button, we're also going to add a new module, Email opt-in.

 

add a new module to the builder

 

 

And as you can see below, you can immediately see the result.

 

Added new module - result

 

We can keep on going about this because it SO AWESOME. However, why not go and give it a spin yourself in the 3.0 demo below?

Languages and RTL

Your linguistic preference should not bar you from using the amazing stuff that this product brings you. The creators understood this quite well, and hence, they have made v 3, completely translatable into 32 different languages! Don’t let your potential stay confined to just one part of the globe because of language restrictions anymore!

RTL and language

New in Divi 4.0: The Theme Builder

With the release of Divi 4.0 comes the release of a brand the brand new Divi! What was once restricted to building custom posts or pages has now evolved to become the Divi Theme Builder!

As the new name implies, you can now use it to build and customize all parts of your website. The best thing here is that you’ll be using the page builder tools that you already know and like! No need to learn a new system just for this.

The powerful tools and modules have broken free from the constraints of posts and pages, they now have the freedom to alter the entirety of your website, from top to bottom and from the front page up to the deepest parts of your archives.

Okay, you might be overwhelmed by this. Does that mean there will be additional tools and modules? Has the interface changed drastically and expanded to accumulate the complexity needed to control, design and build everything?

These questions are understandable since the massive number of page builder features Divi has could be a bit overwhelming at first, especially for novices. While it might be daunting at first for the uninitiated, it doesn’t take more than half an hour to master the basics of Divi.

But, you might be thinking, if this is now a theme builder, then the overwhelming number of tools, modules, and features certainly have grown so now you’ll have to learn a lot of new things, isn’t it?

Wrong!

Nothing actually changed. We already mentioned it earlier: the very tools, modules, and features that you've been using before are also the same set of things that you will use to create custom header, footer and body layout templates.

If you can design a beautiful homepage, then you already know how to design a beautiful theme builder template.

What is the New Theme Builder?

For the most part, nothing massively changed on how you would use Divi Theme Builder (formerly Page Builder). You can go to any supported post type and edit them using the good ‘ol page builder as usual.

The UI remains largely the same. It's the same theme that you’re familiar with. Unless you haven’t used Divi since versions earlier than 3.0, you can pick up everything pretty easily. There are changes but these are very minor and you will easily find your way through it.

The only big new stuff is the Theme Builder. So what is this new Theme Builder? Let’s take a look:

new menu

The usual Divi menu in the admin dashboard now has a sub-item called “Theme Builder” and this is where 90% of the new stuff is in. Accessing this will bring you to the new Divi Theme Builder page where you can see all of the templates you’ve made and where they’re currently being applied to.

theme builder

From the screenshot above, you can see we have six different templates for six different areas of our website. We defined a Global Header and Footer that will be displayed on all parts of the website. Then, we have different templates for All Posts, 404 pages, All Category Pages, All Products and Blog.

What Are Templates?

Templates are what they are: templates. You will create a basic layout, design, and structure and then choose where they would be applied to.

For example, you create a template that will be applied to your blog posts. In the template, you can design how you want your blog posts to appear, what layout it should follow, etc. Save that template and see all blog posts on your entire website follow what you defined in the template.

template demo

Using modules, you can build your template layouts easily. You can even add modules that typically won’t appear in a default blog post. For example, you can add a module under the title that displays related posts… and yes… that means there’s no need for an external plugin to display related posts anymore! What’s best here is that you’re in total control of how you want your related posts to appear and function.

You can also create templates for 404 pages, search result pages, archive pages, products, author pages, categories pages, and many more. Create a template once and see it applied to your entire site in one click.

Conditional Logic

With the help of conditional logic, you can create a template for specific parts of your website. You can have a template that’s applied to your blog posts, except for certain categories, tags. etc.

conditional logic

The Theme Builder in Action

Let’s see how this new feature work. Let’s start at the very beginning.

Typically, you’d want to create a global custom header and footer templates first as the default website template. Once you’ve done this, you can now customize these templates and the header and footer of your entire website will change to display your custom header and footer.

Custom Headers and Footers

Before v4.0, you’re going to need to install third-party plugins to intricately customize Divi’s header and footer areas. Now there’s no more need for that because you can customize them directly within the theme itself!

The Freedom to Build and Design

You can add all sorts of elements on your header and footer. From navigation menus to logos to countdown timers and other dynamic content - pretty much all Divi modules are available for you to use.

Below, you can see what a page looks like in a default Divi installation.

default page

It looks very simple. You can customize it further using the Customizer or you can use the page builder to make the body look better. However, it remains a fact that you can’t do much on the header and the footer area… well, that’s not the case anymore.

With the new theme builder, this same page can now look like this:

custom header footer

The body remained the same, but the header and the footer are now so much better than before. All of this is made possible thanks to the new Theme Builder.

Tip: this custom header and footer layout template can be downloaded from Elegant Theme’s official website!

Custom Body Layouts

Alright. We can build cool headers and footers now. But what about the body?

We know we can use the page builder to create custom pages, like your homepage, about page, etc. and you can even use it to create custom blog posts and products! But… it can be a little bit inefficient and tedious to have to create a page builder template and then export it every time we want to create a new post or page or product or whatever...

Wouldn’t it be better if we can create custom body layout templates that can be created and edited once and be applied to the entire site? That’s where the custom body layouts come in.

With it, you can change the structure of your archive page, 404 page, search results page, blog posts, products, etc. with the new custom body layout feature.

For example, if we want to change how our Archive Page looks like, first we’ll create a new template, then assign it to all archive pages.

create new template

Now that we have created our archive page template, we give it a custom body structure. Creating a custom body, just like creating a custom header and footer, is pretty much the same as creating a custom page. You have access to the same set of tools you use for page building.

custom body

As you’ve seen above, we added a single column row that will hold the contents of our archive page. We added the blog module and configured it to display posts of certain categories. We then customized the layout, changed the title color, and disabled the date from showing up.

Don’t forget to hit the Save Changes button, or your new custom layout will not be applied.

save changes

Let’s see the difference.

In the gif below, the full-width layout was the default appearance of our archive page and the grid layout is our customized archive page.

We just defined the styling and layout and we just configured which content should be displayed and Divi does the rest.

before after comparison

Let’s improve it a bit.

We added another module called post title.

Why post title you ask? This module will display whatever the title of the current post or page is. We disabled unnecessary items such as the featured image and the meta since we only want to display the current title of our archive page. This module is one of the many dynamic modules that will adapt depending on the page it’s on.

optimize

Here’s the result:

custom title

Now we can see the archive page’s title, which says “Month: October 2019”. The title has all the attributes we set on the template: the color, alignment, style.

A More Visual Representation of Custom Body Layouts

Now you have a basic idea of how to create a custom body layout. But that didn’t look very impressive, isn’t it? It’s like we just changed the archive page to grid layout and colored the page title… you can easily do that on any other theme!

So, let’s take a look at another example, but this time, we focus on the design and layout.

Look at this blog post:

default post body layout

Again, here’s the same post but with custom body layout template applied:

custom post body layout

So much better! You can do much more than that since you can add any type of module you can think of in the custom body. For example, you can edit the template and add a pricing table module with CTA right under the related posts… do that once and all blog posts on your entire website will have that pricing table with CTA… posts from past, present, and future!

That’s just the tip of the iceberg of the new theme builder. Remember how you can create all kinds of intricate pages via the page builder? You can also do that to your header, footer and body layouts now. You have total freedom to build and design your entire website!

Security first!

Though WordPress is secure enough not to have website hacking nightmares every single night, we agree that there have been more than just a few vulnerable to cyber insecurities in the past few years. We are sure you have heard of it too!

Well, not with this template! Its ultra-secure code takes care of your security concerns like no other product. We don't, a code audit by Sucuri says so.

Documentation for User Support

Despite the simplicity that the Divi builder brings, if you ever find any hiccup on your way, a detailed documentation is there to help you out. Crafted, keeping in mind, every situational possibility, the support documentation is sure to make it an easy ride for you.

 documentation

The newest version, along with a plump undo icon right there at the top of all functionality boxes, users can simply go for a ctrl+Z or command+Z (for mac lovers). They have made it real easy.

editing history

Honestly, nothing more pretty and easy as the new Divi builder. And with each new version arriving, it is just getting better!

Of course, there are other equally well-functioning standalone page builders for websites to be created in WordPress! Try Pagelines if you want to get the feel of creating sophisticated WordPress sites, irrespective of what your website is based on. We reckon, read the review.

Who Should Use This WordPress Theme / PageBuilder?

Use this WordPress theme/pagebuilder if you are:

An aspiring web developer, a non-techie who wants to set up a website, or a really lazy coder who would do just about anything to shirk elaborate coding.

And that is because v 3.0/4.0 comes with an inbuilt page builder that is super-easy to use.

It basically uses a drag and drop mechanism, which makes it easy for even first time users to come up with beautiful web pages in a matter of minutes!

A point here though, we do not really recommend it for use by a professional web developer. This product is mainly aimed at helping less tech-enabled people get professional results without some really serious investment into code crunching.

Some Divi WordPress Theme Examples

As part of this Divi WordPress theme review, we like to back our claims with a lot of substance that might just be helpful to you. Here are few real-world examples of businesses, that are up and running.

Notice the clarity and the professional touch that these websites have. It is difficult to make out that they did not utilize the skills of a trained designer and developer.

That’s the power of this webpage builder.

Divi 3.0/4.0 Price

87 WordPress themes squeezed into a package at $89! 

Our next part in our review, is something you'll also need to consider - the price. The great thing is there isn't much to think about with Elegant Themes.

Well, let’s clear the air a bit here. The Divi theme is sort of a super set with 87 really cool sub set themes. So when you are paying $89, which is anyway not a really huge deal for a product that comes with its own customizing page builder, you actually end up getting access to 87 different themes plugins to choose from.

New Divi Developer API 

Updated April 2018

As of today, the guys at Elegant Themes have taken their product to the next level - we now have a Developer API available with their most most-popular product. This means that 3rd party developers are now available to create their own plugins and features which integrate directly with Divi theme.

We can now expect plenty of new products which integrate directly with the template and pagebuilder to close any gaps left by the product, or to create even new features and functions we never expected before. 

We are sure this will be working very well with specific niches which would need their particular nuances catered for them with specific tweaks for that industry.

Updates

As with most major vendors, the team is always releasing plenty of new features as time goes by. Here we will be showcasing a few of the updates which happen as they are released.

  • October 17, 2019 - The new theme builder feature was added. It allowed customization of not only the header and footer but also the body structure design and layout using the same page builder tools that are already built-in to the Divi theme itself. This made it possible to build and design an entire website from scratch.

  • May 22, 2019 -  Huge update to the Options module intended primarily to enhance the user experience of using the Builder. Essentially the team ensured that Design Options and Text Settings between the different modules were cohesive, with the full-set of options available on all modules. Additional settings we also added to the Image module(s) where necessary. Input Fields and Buttons also got additional styling options such as Padding and Margin Options. Responsiveness and Hover Optops where added to all elements where it might have been missing. Besides all of the above consistency upgrades, new Help and hints where added.

  • April 12, 2019 - To ensure the drag and drop features were enabled across the board, Visual Controls were added for Width Height and Spacing, such that you can easily drag to fit/adjust where necessary and adjust any Overflow options. This also included the addition of Negative margins such as to make the grid more malleable in the hands of those who need it.

  • March 7, 2019 - Added options to the support mechanisms such as allowing Remote Control (to allow for better troubleshooting and debugging by the support team). Safe Mode was also added, which disabled any plugins which could be interfering with the correct function of the site.

  • December 20, 2018 - the Quick Actions was introduced allowing users to quickly find the tools they need to use as they are working. This literally gave access not just to the features, but also to such stuff as Videos and Documentation, Frontend and Backend Views and everything else you might need while building.

 

Are there any problems with it!?

We can't have a full Divi review without finding something which could be improved - because we wouldn't be factual. We like to tell it like it is.

Know about stuff called shortcodes? Seems it looms over the use of any plugin made for WordPress. Well, the Divi builder is no different there!

We found an article by Chris Lema, which says that once you use this plugin, you're stuck with it.

The article talks about how, because of shortcodes, choosing another template someday, might just be a problem for this pagebuilder users. The theme/pagebuilder inserts shortcodes into your articles. If you switch away from it, the  shortcodes are going to be embedded in the content. And then, you would have to spend hours together to clean up the mess and begin afresh.

But then, there is also this refutation, which has an answer to throw back at Chris Lema. Brought out by Elegant Themes itself, the article talks about how you can overcome the drawbacks that Chris Lema has mentioned in his article.

Really and truly, if you are planning to use any pagebuilder, you are going to get shortcodes in your pages and articles. Whenever you use a shortcode, migrating away from that specific plugin is going to create a problem of needing to replace that shortcode within your pages and posts.

For us, the article by Chris Lema is much ado about nothing. This is standard WordPress functionality.

This is the mother of all multi-purpose WordPress product showdowns - these two are the most popular, most widely used theme + pagebuilder combinations.

As we've used them and reviewed them both, we can tell you whether we prefer using Divi theme or whether we'd rather work with Avada. Why not have a look at the below article where we give you our frank thoughts and compare them.

There are many frameworks out there to build WordPress websites. Without a shadow of doubt, this is definitely one of the most popular and successful themes and page builders out there.

But it's surely not the only one. For example, while web designers have a preference towards drag and drop page builder, web developers typically tend to prefer such frameworks as Beaver Builder vs Divi 3.0. This is because it gives them a bit more control and flexibility than this.

There are many more points to discuss when it comes to comparing Divi 3.0 to Beaver Builder. In fact, we did just that and created a full comparison of these two which you can see at the link above.

There are also many page builders out there, they have become the defacto way to build WordPress websites. While we love this product, there's plenty of competition out there.

Elementor has been picking up very strongly - but, note that it has no themes built-in, it's more of a plugin for building sites, rather than the actual theme per so.

There are many more points to discuss when it comes to comparing these two. As we do, we created a full comparison of these two tools which you can see in the recommended reading link of this section.
