Modular and Update- friendly (thank God!)
If you do this for a living, searching for convenience shouldn’t have to be at the expense of being stuck to one theme and/or framework. Divi Builder basically builds pages as a collection of modules’ –building blocks fully customizable with CSS- that then just go into a slot’ of custom dimensions on the page. This allows for unlimited and super-easy creativity with every single page.
That customizability is repeatable and update-friendly. Because your customizations can be based in classes and CSS within the modules themselves and not the theme, updating the theme is a breeze without worrying about breaking the customizations.
Infinite layouts and Themes
Every Layout in Divi Builder consists of stackable rows with each row and each column capable of custom dimensions. Customized modules can be dropped in anywhere on the layout. This allows you to rapidly build any number of different layouts for different pages which can then be dropped into any theme of your choice.
Since the modules themselves are easily customizable and the plugin provides 46 routinely used categories spanning Email Opt-ins, Comments, Maps, Contact Forms, Blog sections(put them anywhere on the page!) Graphs, Galleries and Images, Call To Actions, embeddable code, Audio player etc.(Check out the full list on Elegant Themes’ website), putting together a high-quality, completely original page layout for any number of pages is a breeze.
Optimized for Full-Width use
Divi Builder provides customized sections for full-width pages, which simplify creating innovative pages easily and coherently with the rest of the site. For example, you can put a full-width Maps section to give your site a high-quality added bonus that meshes perfectly with the styling for the rest of the site. Check out their website for the full list of customizable full-width sections.
All of these mean nothing in a production environment when you’ve got a deadline and need a query answered fast. That’s where Divi Builder’s fantastic support and community shine. Elegant Themes’ large user base of over 400,000 users and fantastic community support for DB ensure that support isn’t going to get you stood up when you need help.
