Divi 3 Review: Things To Consider

Divi is a really nice page builder, but there are some drawbacks. First, it has been around a long time, this is both good and bad. This means they have to keep the plugin backward compatible and this is also why they say “Divi for life”. If you ever deactivate Divi you will be stuck with a bunch of shortcodes gibberish. The disappointing part of that is Divi could easily make it a more seamless process to stop using it, but they haven’t.

This is also concerning as WordPress releases Gutenberg and there has been talk of eliminating shortcode in WordPress, but I doubt that will ever happen.

Divi 3 Review: Summary

Divi is really nice, but I do have a hard time recommending it to anyone because of the content lock-in issue and that it’s based on shortcodes. Pair that with hit or miss support, and website issues on updates, it’s just tough to recommend it when there are other page builders that don’t have these issues.

I will say that the pricing and the lifetime option is very attractive.

Also, the Divi team over the last 12 months has become a well-oiled machine cranking out unbelievable features and enhancements. If that wasn’t enough, they also have pushed out an insane amount of free templates and a template manager for them. It’s a good value all around despite the issues mentioned above.

    in reference to elementor and what occurs after the 1st year, I asked them the same question is this is there response, “Hello Fernando, if you are buying Elementor Pro version you are getting 1 year of Support&Updates, after one year your license expires, however, the renewal is only 50% off the original price.After your license expires, all your existing project will remain intact. The difference is you won’t be able to continue to enjoy our premium support, Pro templates, and updates, which require renewal.”

        Hi Adam theme Divi now has many new features are not the same as before, now Divi added many new features such as new Css editor, code refinement, shader feature, filter features edit opacity as well as Photoshop, new edge features, and the Divider Shaper feature previously available on the Elementor as well as an additional 180 integrated layouts layout.And the number of layouts will increase over the next few months. I hope you will come up with a new review of this theme.Unable to admit that the Divi as well as many layout designers like today does not support shotcore but can this bug will soon be overcome soon Elementor I find it great but only one problem is to spend Every year instead of the permanent license as Divi I think if they later added a whole package to Elementor then it’s good to have many features like editing the text directly in the editor or compiling the call to action. While the Divi has been around for a long time, as the 0% and 50% scaling of the columns is on the Elemental sooner or later the Divi. Maybe Elementor is better than Divi, but I think the tool is not good at divi beard but another project I still use Elementor and mix with Astra is great
