There is so much hype surrounding this WordPress theme I’m sure half of you have already guessed which one I’m about to recommend. Drum-roll please! I give the award for the best WordPress theme to…
Divi 3.0 by Elegant Themes
Where to begin, I think I may have to develop a list to go through the reasons I love this theme. I’ll include some screenshots so it’s easier to follow.
Reason #1: Usability
Divi is a game changer because of its unique drag-and-drop site builder. Each page of Divi can be customized using this drag-and-drop editor which makes it easy to spruce up a boring block of text with background images, video embeds, CTA’s, and buttons in a few simple clicks. There’s no need to battle a million widgets with Divi installed – it’s truly an out-of-the-box WordPress theme solution in that it offers everything you’ll need to develop a unique website with little need for third party additions.
Reason #2: Intricacy
In contrast to Reason #1, Divi is by no means a redundant or simplified theme. On the contrary, Divi is quite complex and provides sophisticated tools that allow a developer to customize where they’d like to – and use the drag-and –drop system where they prefer ease of use. It’s the perfect blend of simplicity and intricacy.
Reason #3: Versatility
The intricacy of the theme and it’s brilliant, simple, builder mean that Divi can be customized to suit any business. It’s one of the most versatile themes I’ve worked with as you’re not limited by templates or widgets. Divi can be customized to look as wild or minimalistic as you’d like and much of the infrastructure is built right in. In fact, there’s hundreds of Divi Child Themes available in the Elegant Marketplace to demonstrate this point. When building websites for a large spectrum of clients this characteristic is mightily important.
Reason #4: Community
Divi is a well-loved theme and has quite a following of die-hard users which means, there’s a large community of people using the theme, editing the theme, customizing the theme, exploring new ways to push the themes boundaries and most importantly all of this discussion is captured via the many forums and support pages that have been created by this fan base. It’s an organically grown community of web developers and business owners who want to pool together the best use cases for Divi and solutions to any bugs that emerge. Questions submitted to these forums are generally answered within 24 hours by another Divi user who’s been there – done that and has an answer for you.

Reason #5: Awesome Updates and Support
Elegant Themes obviously knows they have a winner with Divi and it keeps getting better and better with each new update. It’s great to see what was already a strong theme to work with constantly being adapted and improved. Furthermore, they offer friendly and responsive support if you can’t find an answer to your troubles in the many forums that exist. Speaking of terrific updates -Elegant Themes just released Divi 3.0 and it’s knocking some socks off. Real Website Hints did a great in-depth review on it which can be read here.
