Okay, let me confess again, I’m an avid WordPress fanatic. Notwithstanding the fact that WordPress is now the most popular and widely used Content Management System (CMS) dominating more than 60% of CMS market share, its theme & plugin architecture is the core essence why WordPress is so versatile and powerful that all are flocking to it.
One of THE best themes that shoot right up to number 1 in my list is the Divi theme from Elegant Themes. Not coincidentally, Elegant Themes is also my #1 top favourite premium WordPress themes provider.
First impression for the Divi theme is that – wow, it’s nice BUT seems rather complicated and rather graphic intensive for beginning web designers/developers. Luckily, after building 3 of my recent sites with Divi – cool, not only it’s not as complex as I’ve thought, its building blocks – Divi Builder, Divi Modules etc. really make building visually stunning WordPress sites a piece-of-cake – and yes, literally, it’s as easy as piecing up the blocks and modules from within the builder and you’re off with an elegant and beautiful website.
The biggest advantage of Divi theme is that it comes with a galore of pre-made layouts – from landing to sales pages, blog to portfolio styles and e-commerce shop with various layouts. These pre-made layouts make it so easy for anyone to begin building any online projects easily and fast.
And in terms of being a web developer, the Divi theme allows us to build sites that can look very different – all thanks to the fully customisable drag-n-drop layouts and blocks. This is one theme that gives very high ROI to any web developer!
