Elegant Marketing , but are they the best WordPress super theme or not?
I won’t lie to you. This blog post was inspired by some smart marketing by Elegant Themes for their Divi super theme. If I write a blog post then I stand 10 more chances to win a Mac Pro. So, why not? For more details see the Divi Black Friday sale
For the last 5 more years I have not been a fan of Divi or any of the other theme editors. None of them did everything properly, and you always ended up having to edit a PHP file or some HTML somewhere.
Of course the lack of proper child themes or layouts was always an issue. Divi, however, has come a long way and when a designer I was working with used it a few months ago I was impressed, we have since used it on quite a few projects, and it has given us some flexibility we never had before.
There are a few things they could do little better for speed optimisation, but they are one of the better themes in terms of that. Nothing that can’t be fixed with a few addons and a CDN.
So I actually rate Divi as worth a serious look if you in the market for a new Theme/Builder combination., or even just a theme.
