divi builder plugin

Today I am going to show you an amazing WordPress Wp plugin that can make any WordPress website awesome. I will test elements of the design modules within the post to show you what can be done.

Its from elegant themes.This is not a review, but a honest write up on a amazing WP plugin that can transform your website design and look of your blog posts.

I love this plugin as you can use it with any theme. I have been using elegant  themes and plugins for the  past 7+ years.

The Divi Builder plugin from elegant

flexible website builder

This  wordpress web builder plugin can make landing pages, faq pages, lead or sale buttons, your profile or portfolio page, an awesome price comparison page or just mix this all together in one page seamlessly. You could easily add any of these above mentioned features to any page on your website. The plugin that does this is called the divi builder plugin from elegant themes. I have been using elegant for the last 7 years and they are the most value for money wp theme provider IMHO.

To be honest I got to know about the divi builder plugin only a bit recently and I m a fan already. I like it because it does not restrict and can be used with any WP theme you have installed on your webpage. It can make your website look like a professional landing page in a minute, if you like . It builds webpages as responsive pages. You can easily chop and change design elements on a page  including  adding  a pic background , transparent color background  and many more features to any section of your page.

The beauty of this all is anybody can now design an awesome looking page or website with this website builder plugin without having to know any coding. This plugin uses the new drag and drop technology, where you can just drag a premade section or style to your page and drop it where you want it to appear. You can then go ahead and edit elements further if you want, like adding a background color or pic, changing the font and font colors size for that section, adjusting margins , padding etc and much more.

Using this plugin, I almost felt like i am using microsoft word and making an amazing looking document – its so easy. For people entirely new to websites or minimum knowledge of websites, this might still take a few days of getting used to how you use this plugin, but once you know what you can do with it, you will use it everywhere. what does this Website builder plugin cost –  It is available with purchasing a yearly membership to elegant themes, but  for sure  you get much more in value than you can imagine with the membership fees. Details of fees below.

So what’s the price of their membership today ?

socail media sharing plugin

The cost for  a elegant  WP theme membership today is $89 per year. For this you get access to their whole collection of 87 premium wordpress themes, access to all plugins,updates and premium support. The got two awesome plugins Bloom email opt in plugin free ( email opt in plugins for  collecting emails) and  Monarch ( Social media sharing plugin) that by itself is of great value and is included  with the membership fees.

different kinds of wp themes from elegant responsive

They have an amazing 22 responsive themes and  many more themes  including ecommerce, magazine and 4 free tumblr themes.

 

Divi builder plugin vs Divi theme

The divi website builder plugin was built as an afterthought to the release of the Divi theme, but both of them are awesome in thier own ways. Divi theme has all the features of the divi builder inbuilt into the theme, while the builder plugin can be used as a stand alone wp plugin to work with any wordpress theme.

I actually tried this plugin on one website that i am building for a friend. I used the genesis pro theme with the divi builder plugin and was amazed I managed a google page 1 ranking for him within a week .

extra divi based theme template

There is also the “EXTRA Theme” from elegant wordpress themes that makes use of the divi functionality and is an amazing theme itself out of the box. When I first purchased my elegant theme membership 5+ years ago it was only $39 a year for like 60 or so premium wordpress themes and it was a steal then. Today prices have increased with most premium wp theme and template providers, yet elegant is the cheapest with the most professionally coded themes on the internet.

When I first started blogging i was on a budget and purchased single themes costing me anywhere betwen $15 to $30 for each theme at that time. So when I came across 60 plus quality themes, it just made sense to sign up for a yearly membership. I didnt regret it and my active membership today and use of thier plugins is proof of that.

Apart from this plugin they do have some other amazing WP plugins like bloom and Monarch that I use on some other websites and those add value for the membership too.

I have websites as online web directories that I launched 3 years ago and still doing well with the elegant elist theme.

To be fair I do have other favorite theme providers too. After elegant, I would rate Solostream WP themes and the Studiopress Genesis themes as my second best WPtheme providers. I used to use wpzoom for quite some time, but then they started charging more for extended support etc , so I ditchedd them. Thier themes are still good and helped me rank sone sites up , but i feel Studiopress Genesis themes much better and getting ranked with thier in built seo. I have made sites that make me money withdc elegant themes and rank on google as well, so I hope im not confusing you.

Each theme provider has their own unique strong points and so its always good to sign up with at least three if you can afford to. If you cant then the choice is clear for me.

If you are looking for a good design option for your existing or new wordpress blog , then do check out their themes here, before you go elswhere. You will thank me later! 🙂
