Divi WordPress Theme comes to you from the trusted theme house, Elegant Themes. It is their flagship theme and it has been crafted entirely with user requirements in mind. The theme features will help even WordPress novices to find their way about and to set up their websites. All that is required is a little effort at understanding the theme features and loads of imagination.
What makes Divi popular with WordPress users ? The short answer is – the pre-made layouts and the Divi Builder. Divi packs hundreds pre-made layouts that you can pick from as a starting point for your website. The layouts can be completely customized. And whatever your niche, you are likely to find a pre-made layout ready for it.
The Divi Builder is a drag and drop page builder that puts modules and elements at your disposal to build your pages visually, without using any code. The Builder comes with a Live Preview feature, which helps you catch a glimpse of how your website will look before it goes live. If something is amiss, you can make the necessary changes, before your readers can view it. You can also use Divi Builder to design your posts.
For the long answer, you can refer to our Review on Divi. A few features are highlighted here,
Divi comes to you as part of a package from Elegant Themes. Two options for membership are available – Yearly access at $89 and Lifetime Access at $249. All plans entitle you to all the themes, including Divi from Elegant themes.
To give you an idea of the kind of themes you can build with Divi, I have lined up 40 websites that have used Divi.
Zeta Global are marketing consulting folks who use predictive marketing intelligence to come up with growth strategies for their clients. Updated profiles of users enable them to identify suitable content and deliver the right experiences for each user.
The full screen image on the homepage gives way to a sticky white header as you begin to scroll down the page. A few features of their platform are highlighted on the homepage, but for details on their platform and about the team, a reader will have to open the neatly organized pages. A few of the page heads will be seen only on opening the menu and this keeps the header quite uncluttered.
The website may also enjoy more conversions with the distraction-free call to action button for requesting a demo, displayed well at the start and end of the homepage.
sites.udel.edu opens up a world of WordPress to students at the University of Delaware. The site can be used by staff at the college to have a web presence for any department or office. Faculty can use it for scheduling classes or for putting out research papers and publicizing them. Registered student organizations and employees of the university can also access this site to set up an online presence.
The website is highly functional with more white space and text, and a total lack of images. The accent bar contains only the login and search functions. The only hint of color in the website comes from the numerous helpful links sprinkled generously all over the website, from the 3 icons in the sidebar and the status indicators in the sidebar on the Help page.
Dateyard is an enabler for dating sites. By joining Dateyard, the bother of running the website is taken away. At the same time, the traffic to your website is increased and your affiliate income also rises. Full width images on a slider explain quite clearly the business model that this website adopts.
Image icons have been used to list the services offered. The names of some dating websites who are already members are displayed. The website uses muted and pleasant colors with calming images, blending romance and business in one place.
Paleo Grubs Book is a recipe book that is available digitally.
The book contains over 470 recipes that cover meal plans for 10 weeks. The meals are healthy, easy to prepare and will leave you feeling energetic. The website content is all contained in one page, with a delicious, tempting full screen image at the top. A three minute video highlighting the benefits of the book in an engaging manner is placed below the image.
The names of some recipes in the book, the bonus added for purchasing the book, testimonials from users, return of money if not satisfied and a few FAQs, all manage to find a place in the single page. And of course, you can order for the book from the page. A scroll to the top button on the website would have been a thoughtful touch.
Lemonade Design offers website designing and branding services. This Divi based website has conspicuously branded its own website using lemon yellow color wherever appropriate.
A slider on the homepage moves only text overlay to show the services offered by the firm, the full width image in the background adding depth and remaining constant throughout. The website is divided into horizontal sections that display designs and latest posts. The footer is broad and dark and contains contact information.
The blog page has a pop out subscription form that will fly out as you near the bottom of the page. Helpful Back to the Top buttons are seen on all the pages.
What better method to portray an ice cream website than photographs? Angry Moose Ice Creams uses photographs effectively to tempt viewers with delightful photographs of their sorbets and ice creams. Although the product range is limited and the blog has not been updated for quite awhile, the website is included in this list for the simple uncluttered layout and pleasant colors.
All the pages are structured in a boxed layout with dark borders. The header is pale in color, and the menu items and logo are centered in the header. A sidebar to the right will allow access to any blog post from the archives (though they are really few in number).
There is an interesting story behind the name Angry Moose and you can read it in the About Me section.
Windsor Bergen Academy has been set up to nurture children with behavioral and attention disorders in a caring environment. As the website includes children among its viewers, it uses bright colors. The background is a bright yellow with information contained in neat white boxes. The fonts used are also a little like a child’s handwriting.
In the sidebar to the right you will find information about the important dates that children should keep track of and the learning programs offered by the school. A map just above the footer will help a visitor find his way to the school easily.
The website is packed with loads of information, but there is absolutely no clutter as everything is neatly organized and spaced out. The detailed drop down menu and the scroll to the top button makes navigation easy and finding what you want should not be difficult on this website.

Let’s keep things rolling with the photography theme! Dan Carr Photography is another photographer who uses Divi to power his website.
Dan’s not a wedding photographer, though, so his Divi website features tons of cool nature shots and other types of photos. I especially like the huge full-width grizzly bear hero image.
Last one before we move onto non-photography sites! Philippa James is another wedding photographer that uses Divi to power her portfolio site.
There’s a reason why you keep seeing photography websites popping up here – Divi makes a great option for any type of portfolio website.
