Divi Builder is a great page builder plugin for web agencies for one main reason: With a single license, you can use it on as many websites as you need. In other words, you only need to buy one license for all of your projects. In addition to Divi Builder, the license also allows you to download other WordPress products developed by Elegant Themes (the developer of Divi Builder), including:
- Divi Theme
- Extra Theme
- Monarch (social media sharing plugin)
- Bloom (email opt-in plugin)
Please note that Divi (just “Divi”) is a WordPress theme while Divi Builder is a page builder. Divi Builder itself was previously only available on themes developed by Elegant Themes, but the company decided to release it as a standalone plugin back in 2015. Meaning that you can now use Divi Builder on themes outside Divi and Extra. If you prefer to use Divi or Extra theme, you don’t need to install the Divi Builder plugin anymore as the page builder is an integral part of those themes.
Just like other page builder plugins, Divi Builder also comes with a visual editor with a live editing experience. There are about 38 design elements (called modules) offered by Divi Builder that you can use to create your page. In addition to creating beautiful pages, you can also use Divi Builder to create custom templates for your theme parts thanks to its Theme Builder feature. Some theme templates you can create with Divi Builder include header, footer, single post, archive pages, 404 page, search results page, and so on. To streamline your workflow, Divi Builder offers premade templates.
Another advantage of using Divi Builder (especially if you work for a web agency) is that Divi Builder has an established ecosystem. Elegant Themes offers an official marketplace where you can get Divi extensions, templates, and child themes.
Furthermore, Divi Builder supports dynamic content — including custom fields — to make it easy for you to create a fully customized WordPress-based website without having to understand PHP.
