In this case, we talk about theme multipurpose And the one we've always been used to recommending and offering to most of our customers is Total.
I will not come back on the features of this theme, because it is true that it is good, but today, I will tell you about a serious candidate who is called " Divi ».
Divi is a Premium WordPress theme designed by the authors of Elegant Theme. It's also a framework, in that it can be used to create other themes, but this is not the part that should interest you.
The good thing about Divi is that:
- It's a multipurpose theme

- Optimized for SEO
- A responsive theme
- A theme that has a very large community
- A theme that has a lot of tutorial
- A theme constantly updated
- A theme compatible with MailChimp
This is really a good theme and it is not the video presentation that will tell you the opposite.
So what will we do in this tutorial? Well, we will mainly talk about Divi, how to make it your own, the installation (presentation of the interface), the configuration and finally how you can create specific websites, we will take some random niches (I will make sure to cover most of your needs).
How to appropriate the Divi theme?
As I told you earlier, Divi is a theme designed by Elegant themes. To have it, you must go to their website and choose one of their formula.
Easily create your website with Elementor
Elementor allows you to easily create any website design with a professional look. Stop paying expensive for what you can do yourself. [Free]
Yes I can imagine, it's not that affordable, but don't just focus on the price, but also what you get for that price. What you need to know is that Elegant Theme offers much more than Divi, you have:
For the annual access plan
- Access to all themes
- Access to all plugins
- Free updates
- The ability to request a refund after 30 days
For the access plan for life
You have the same possibilities as the annual plan, but here everything is unlimited, but in addition it includes lifetime support and a lifetime cost.
If you want more information, go to their website.
Installation and first impressions
Once you have chosen a formula, you can, from your dashboard Elegant Theme, download Divi, all you will want to do is install. Read this tutorial, if you want to know how to install a WordPress theme.
The first thing I noticed after installing Divi, well it's to realize that it is in French (unlike his site).
You will see that it offers a link to the documentation, which is already a good thing in case you encounter problems. I admit that what was a bit disappointing is that the documentation is in English. But hey, it is quite detailed with videos, especially organized in section (modules), So you can easily see (visual) How various aspects of Divi.
Introducing the Divi interface
Back on the dashboard, it is now a question of understanding what new Divi brings. You will notice on your side menu a new menu called "Divi".
By clicking on the menu « Divi », You will access the interface of Divi or more precisely« theme options ". This interface will allow you to manage different aspect of the theme including keys (MailChimp, Google Analytics), but it's also a section that will also collect some default WordPress settings (like the number of articles per pages, the format of the date, and a CSS area).
You will also notice that this dashboard is made up of several tabs. We will not go into everything in detail here. We will come back to this when we discuss how to create a site with Divi for a specific niche. But I'll still tell you what the other tabs are:
Navigation : This tab allows you to control the display of items on the menu, to determine how the menu appears for pages and categories.
models : This tab allows you to control the items that will appear in the info section of your articles and some article options. You also have the possibility to control some settings of the pages.
Pub : This is where you can control the ads on Divi.
Seo : I think this tab speaks for itself. All you need to optimize your blog for SEO will be here.
Integration : This section is reserved for the developer and will allow them to control the location where some elements will appear (tags, css, etc.).
Update : Here you can set your license key to receive free updates.
This second menu will take you directly to the theme's customizer. We will not go into details. We will come back to this when we discuss the design of websites.
For starters, you will not need the other options in the Divi menu. That's all for this presentation of Divi. We will come back later on website design with Divi. If you have any questions, do not hesitate.
