Divi4u: All about the Divi WordPress Theme

Some days ago I published a post about the Divi WordPress theme. At the end of that post I mentioned I was working on a new site based on Divi, a site you were going to love if you like the Divi WordPress theme, and I also said that I would post about the new site as soon as it was ready.

Well, it is finally here: Introducing Divi4u, a site all about the Divi WordPress theme.

Divi4u is not just a blog about a particular WordPress theme since this site includes some useful tools and resources to get the most from Divi. Here is what you will find in Divi4u right now:

See examples of sites using the Divi WordPress theme

I know that one of the things that WordPress users really appreciate is to be able to see real examples of websites which are using the themes they are interested in.

Whether you are considering to buy a particular theme for a new site or whether you already downloaded that theme, I´m sure you would like to see what others did with it. Sometimes you can get very inspiring ideas that you won´t get from the theme demo site. And don´t get me wrong: I´m talking here about getting ideas, not about just copying what others already made.

So when I first thought of developing a new site about the Divi WordPress theme, I was positive about a page showing examples of sites using Divi being the first resource to be included.

Examples of sites using Divi displays hundreds of sites that use the Divi WordPress theme, showing their screenshot and providing a link to each of them:

Check if a site uses the Divi WordPress theme

Divi4u also includes a tool that will sound familiar to those of you who are regular visitors here, and that  many others may find interesting for a quick check: The Divi Theme Detector.

If you guess that a site you like uses the Divi WordPress theme, just enter its address and hit the button to check it out. This tool will analyze it for you and will show some details such as the theme version or if a child theme is being used. In case the site does not use Divi, it will tell you the name of the theme used. And, of course, it will detect child themes as well.

Like the WPThemeDetector tool, it only works for WordPress sites; if WordPress is not detected on the analysed site this tool will tell you so. If you´re not just checking if a site uses the Divi WordPress theme and would like to get more information about any WordPress site (such as plugins being used, detailed information about the themes and providers and other additional information), then of course you should keep using WPThemeDetector instead.

Easily create a child theme of Divi with a free plugin

I always recommend using a child theme. If you are not familiar with the reasons behind it let me just tell you that, if you do not use a child theme, all the modifications you made to customize your WordPress theme will be lost as soon as you update the theme to a new version. You can read more about child themes in my Child Theme Tutorial Series.

Since I always planned to offer in Divi4u  some freebies to make things even easier when working with Divi, I thought that it could be a good idea to develop a free plugin specifically intended for helping you create child themes of your Divi WordPress theme.

I´ve called it Divi Children, and it is a one-click child theme creator plugin with some nice features:

  • It grabs the information about you and your site so you don´t have to type it (but of course you can change it before creating the child theme).
  • It creates a stylesheet that is ready for tweaking Divi with section titles taken from the parent theme, so you can have everything under control and won´t get lost in the CSS ‘jungle’.
  • It creates a basic functions.php file for you.
  • It allows you to customize the credits or copyright line of your footer, showing your dates always automatically updated thanks to an included function.
  • It uploads a default screenshot for your child theme.
  • It allows you to change that screenshot at any moment, uploading your screenshot image directly from your WordPress admin area.
  • And even more features to come in future versions…

With this plugin you won´t need to use ftp at all to create your child theme. I hope you all enjoy it.

Read news, tips and tutorials about Divi

And of course, Divi4u  also includes a blog all about Divi WordPress theme. Posts on that blog will be of different kinds: news Divi, tricks, tips and tutorials, news about the site Divi4u such as the release of new features when tools and resources get upgraded, or the release of new freebies, just to name a few of the different topics to be expected.

By the way, the new version of Divi, Divi 2.0, has just been released a few minutes before I published this post.

And it comes with a nice surprise: I´ve got from Elegant Themes some special discounts for our readers to celebrate Divi 2.0!

  1. It looks like Twenty Thirteen.
    I have a split screen theme.

  2. The divi child theme plugin = gold. This is a convenient step towards moving my entire workflow to the browser.

  3. Luis! Im so happy to learn about Divi4u.com! I am new to Divi and have been desperate for a gallery like the one you have provided. When mine is where I want it (still learn how to use it) I’ll be happy to have you add it to the others. Wish I’d found you last week, I bought the 2.0 a couple of days ago! Nevertheless, thrilled to meet you and your site. I’m going to share it with my other Divi friends!

    • Welcome Liz!
      I´m glad to be of help, and looking forward to see what you achieve with Divi 2.0. By the way, I´ve just released Divi Children, a free plugin to create Divi child themes the easy way. I strongly recommend you using a child theme if you are going to customize your theme.

  4. Hello Luis, Its so great to hear that there is a site completely for DIVI designs. I am always a fan of Elegant Themes and have their Developer license. And thanks to Divi4u I know in which way I am going to design my website.
    Thanks For sharing this Luis !

    • I´m glad you find it useful, Rohit.
      Please make sure you subscribe to the Divi4u Blog to stay tuned.

  5. hi,

    I am using the divi theme on my website, however when I upload the logo you can barely see it, the size is extremely small, any ideas why?

    Thanks

  6. I’m working on a test site for a client using the divi theme. For some reason, the blog is now allowing me to make changes so I added some custom CSS to change the background color, etc. But now I’ve discovered that the pages are showing on the blog when I click on a link or search for something on the blog. How do I stop this from happening? Also how do I control the number of posts to show on the page since the blog is not responding with the regular options?

    • I´m sorry I overlooked your comment until just now, AJ.

      Are you still experiencing that issue? I can´t grasp exactly what your problem is.

  7. Be carefull.
    The page buider can be used only on pages and not on posts.
    You will have wonderful pages and realy poor posts.

    • I can only partially agree with you, Fabrizio.

      It´s true that the default posts are not the best you can expect from Divi. In fact, I don´t like them myself.

      For instance, I didn´t like at all the way post meta data was displayed, and that´s why I included Post Meta Data as a customizing feature in my Divi Children plugin. And I plan to include other options to tweak the way posts are presented via the WordPress Customizer as well, for future versions of the plugin.

      But (and this is where I disagree) to have really poor posts you need something else than a theme displaying posts in a way you don´t like. If the post content is good enough, appropriate images are used, etc, there´s no way you´ll end up having a really poor post. As opposed to pages, posts can look a little too plain, or they can appear somewhat tiresome before you start reading them, but a good post will never become a poor one because its appearance, not to say a really poor one.

      Anyway, regarding the part where I agree with you, a couple of things should be noted:

      1) It is quite easy to tweak the appearance of posts to make them fit your particular taste, since their structure does not change from post to post as it happens with pages.

      2) Posts should be kept as neutral as possible. If you were able to use the Page Builder for posts, your site will become fully dependent of your current theme for future theme changes.

      And remember that you can always create a child theme with Divi Children plugin and easily customize your posts. At the time being you´ll be able to customize only the post meta data (as well as other parts of your site like footer, sidebars, etc), but I´ll be adding other settings for posts.

  8. Hi Luis
    I’m not speaking about the layout of the posts but about the ability to insert into the posts all the “amenities” that I can easily insert with page Builder like the blurbs, slider,accordion, pricing tables and so on.

    Thanks for the plugin. I wil try ASAP.

    • You´re welcome, Fabrizio

      I hope you enjoy the plugin.

      About the post Divi modules, like I said, they would make your posts too theme-dependent. You would get a lot of weird results if you decided to change your theme sometime in the future.

      • I tried just know and it works.
        Thanks
        Fabrizio

        Now i’m working on How to insert the Page Builder in the posts.

        I’m tring Divi Page Builder Integration plugin with some good results but also not perfect integration.
        Fabrizio

  10. White is the best for background

  12. Hey Thanks Luis for sharing this with us. I have just submitted few websites I have created using your “Divi Theme Detector” tool. It was so easy.

  13. I tried your Divi detector tool. Great job! I’m happy to see so many great Divi resources popping up lately!

  14. Hello Luis,
