In December of 2013, ElegantThemes.com released a theme called Divi and it was truly a game changer.

I jumped on the bandwagon in June 2015 with Divi 2.4 and I love it so much I’ve moved my two major sites (www.lusciouslime.com and www.luscioussimple.com) to it and am moving my personal site (www.jillchongva.com) over as well.

I had been using another framework/child themes combo for years, but was never truly faithful to it.  When new themes like Avada, Enfold or X came along,  I gave them a try.  I wanted to be able to use a builder system that I could control (I’m a control freak!) and I loved the fact that I could create all sorts of page configurations that would highlight the content I wanted to showcase.

But I was always concerned about the “bloat” I saw in these themes.   One in particular added huge numbers of custom fields to enable their functions and it just didn’t sit well with me.

Enter Divi.

Well-coded and relatively easy to learn, I’m in love.  I have all the functionality of a builder system that I can control and though Divi has it’s hiccups, like all themes, it has literally thousands of options that allow me to fine-tune layouts, colour schemes, typography, video, audio and so on and so on.

There is also a great user group on Facebook, giving support for both experienced and novice users of the Divi builder.  There are over 5ooo members in the group who are more than willing to step in and share their knowledge of the builder, css, plugins, tips and tools for extending Divi even further.

You can see the Divi theme at ElegantThemes.com [affiliate link] and you can see some examples of it in use at Divi Theme Examples.

Overall, Divi is a great choice for those who want the flexibility of a builder while incorporating styling like some of the most popular themes on Theme Forest.
