Probably the best wordpress theme in the world

It was hard in the beginning for me to learn, but not for the reason you would think so. I was so used to do design in more rigid themes that took extra effort that my brain was finding it hard to actually accept that doing things here was THAT easy. In the end I loved the usage so much that I bought the lifetime license and I use this theme in all my websites. Also the native features of the theme allowed me to eliminate about 10 plugins from my site and making it faster.

Pros

It is really hard to choose, because there are so many great features, but obviously the ability to actually see how your design is going to look like in real time and be able to switch to phone, tablet and desktop is a huge time saver and such a great help for UI/UX.

Cons

This is probably a nitpick, but I think in the Divi General Options, you should add a "Social Media" Tab, and put here a list of ALL the social networks available to people, the current options are too limited and outdated (Google+ is still an option even though that social network doesn't exists anymore). This is a feature easily found in all other themes. One great example you can take for this feature is found in the "X Theme", and while I was able to add all my social media icons to my site, I doubt most people will be thrilled to touch the code files inside the theme folder. Again, even if you know how to do it, it's a bit frustrating to go to the code files for every change you want to make when you know other themes allow you to do this pretty easily. But to be fair, compared to all the benefits from Divi, this is a minor issue.

Divi - More features - Still great

I have been really pleased with this product since I first started using it 5 or 6 years ago. I have also, always been impressed with the level of service they provide and with the quality of the upgrades. The upgrades have always provided improvements that have a use, not bloatware.

Pros

The software is easy to use and intuitive speeding up my workflow and making it easier for my customers to make changes themselves. The Theme Builder is one of the best features added recently and it allows me to quickly tailor the them to the client visually.

Cons

Occasionally, there are some speed/performance issues but these are mostly due to the hosting in these cases or plugin interactions.

Reasons for Choosing Divi

Because of the support and the quality of the product.

website design and development - DIVI is the answer

As I continue to learn and grow in my web design business, I only use Divi as I can build just about anything from a simple 1-3 page website to a full out development site with many user experiences for their backoffice extensions. There is nothing you can't do.

Pros

Installation of Divi is very simple even for the novice users of wordpress. The software for my firm is very affordable as the lifetime license purchase can be paid for on your very first project. As a developer there is nothing you can't do with Divi. Let your imagination go and Divi can make it come to life. There are endless tutorials and support to get your project working if your stuck. Their support is state of the art chat and email for convenience. If one level can't get the answer it goes to another higher level of expertise and training. Then another if needed. I've never experienced this type of support from any of software title. The Divi team keeps adding more and more extensions, modules and theme updates to always make existing and newer projects more exiting to start a new or offer our existing clients updates to their existing sites so they are not stagnant. The Divi team takes all software enhancement suggestions seriously and focuses on making the enhancements ready to market the offerings to all subscribers either email or videos. I've been with Divi and Elegant Themes since it was 1.0 and never looked back. I totally recommend them.

Cons

I have nothing to say about the cons of this software as it has always met my expectations.

Reasons for Choosing Divi

Way more offerings for the price, state of the art support.

Divi themes - avoid

A nightmare. So much is locked into this particular web content manager one should really, really think hard about using it, versus more server friendly products which are either cheaper or totally free.

Pros

Okay, so this was easy to get going. I'd volunteered to assist in revamping a friend's website. It was pretty easy to figure it out.

Cons

Okay, where do I start? It's a webserver resource hog. The server was so bogged down, pages took a very long time to load. I looked at multiple ways to cache and limit reloads, but the theme simply took too long to load even the simplest of pages. You also can't just change the theme. You have to rebuild from scratch , which is what we would up doing. I installed another CMS theme and the site began loading much quicker.

Divi has a learning curve but it's so worth it

Someone recommended Divi for building my site. At the time I didn't know much about web design and I was using standard Wordpress themes. Divi was a big game-changer for me. In weeks I had the website of my dreams up and running. I couldn't believe I had managed to do that myself. But the best part is the support that you get. They will help with anything you need and always within 24 Hours. They send you images of the code that is causing the problems and how you can fix it. They will even enter the site for you securely and investigate if that's what it takes.

Pros

It has many, many features. Imagine it, and you can do it with Divi

Cons

It can be hard to know how to do some things if you're a self-made web developer. But that is not necessarily a bad thing. It means that there are many things you can do with Divi and need to learn how to make the most of it.

Reasons for Choosing Divi

I thought it had much more to offer in the way of features and flexibility
