Happy Holidays! Divi-Chicago Meetup joined with Divi-Sacramento Meetup for a virtual Holiday Party. We exchanged holiday traditions and we found out about new ones celebrated in other parts of the world. It was a great meetup! Thanks to Divi-Sacramento hosts for organizing the Holiday Party.
The next time we meet will be next year. Join the Divi-Chicago Monthly Mastermind starting in 2022. Get ideas, the latest Divi information, and a peek at the newest plugins in the works.

February 2022

We had our first Divi-Chicago Community Sharing Meetup where members of the Meetup group do the talking, share their knowledge, and answer questions.
Eric Oh, Dave Flannery, and Nancy Mikyska, experienced Divi users, showed us how to do a Digital Business Card in Divi, build a Divi Blog Page Template and flip the Meta Text of a Divi Blog Post.

Dear goodness, Divi Chicago, the way you pour into your community! πŸ’“

In January, our community demonstrated their best processes for developing WordPress sites using Divi. We talked about ways to make using Divi easier, including custom post types and the Divi Theme Builder, using Divi Presets to minimize repetitive work, and optimizing for design. Also, we had the honor of having Divi’s own Raquel Landefeld stop in.

We love your commitment, Divi DFW! β™₯️

What a year!
For our Dec 2021 Meetup, we were fortunate to be joined by the Divi Atlanta group for a Holiday Social Celebration (+ Divi NYC 3 yr Anniversary!) where we wrapped up the year with Divi chat, successes, Q&A, and some always-fun shop talk.
We’ve made some wonderful connections, friendships, and collaborations in the past year and we look forward to more to come in 2022. Thank you for being part of our group.
Haven’t made a meeting, yet? Join us! We look forward to having you.
Happy New Year,
Patty Rose, Jeanine, Mickey

We would like to thank Cammy Farone – Divi Advocate and Divi Atlanta Meet-up Co-organizer for taking us through the process of designing our Divi sites using Divi’s built-in customization features. She demonstrated how easy it is to start creating a website with brand-first thinking using Divi.
Cammy introduced the 3 “must-have” brand elements needed before starting any website.
She gave us a step-by-step walk-through of adding our branded elements to the Divi customization tools.
And shared many tips tools and resources to make branding Divi our sites simple and efficient which can be found on the Divi Atlanta meet-up page.
Thank you Cammy for a wonderful presentation!

February 2022

The focus of our February Meetup: How to use the Divi Theme Builder to create custom WooCommerce pages. During this session, Christina walked us through her process for creating beautiful, custom WooCommerce pages. This tutorial helped show us how to craft WooCommerce templates within the Divi Theme Builder to perfectly fit in with a site’s overall theme, design, and branding, while still utilizing the power of the WooCommerce plugin to create a seamless user experience for clients and customers.

Dang, Divi NYC, you all do such wonderful work for your community!! πŸ€—

December 2021

We had a great turnout for our online Holiday Social! The folks from Divi Chicago joined our “party”, where we had some good laughs over the results of our “Ha-ha Holiday Poll” – silly questions pertaining to the holiday season. This social event allowed us to unwind and wrap up 2021 while everyone got to know each other. We look forward to our future Meetups in 2022… Happy New Year to everyone around the globe!

January 2022

Divi Sacramento kicked off the New Year with a “fresh” look at website basics for our topic meeting – HTML and CSS, and the essential parts of any web page. During our monthly Q&A meeting, members shared and compared experiences using Gutenberg blocks for non-Divi themes and the benefits of using Divi and the Divi Builder. We also discussed migrating websites, including blog sites from Blogger, as well as how to solve for cached files in Divi. Next month we will explore various Divi modules and demo the similarities and differences.

February 2022

For February’s topic meeting, Rosalinda provided an overview and demo of the Divi Modules – basic features, differences between modules, creative uses, and how to apply a workflow when using them. Rosalinda gave a demo to showcase these points by building a web page for a cafe. During our monthly Q&A meeting, we had lots of great questions – topics included color palette guidelines, Google fonts in Divi, best ways to provide PDF uploads, and optimizing home page SEO. Next month, Elizabeth will talk about copywriting for the web!

Thanks for your amazing talent, Divi Sacramento! β™₯️

January 2022

Another successful Q&A for Divi Salt Lake City! We had questions ranging from creating dynamic button links, adjusting blog module categories, to creating vertical menu links with the menu module. We even go to see Eric’s hand at a digital business card and the tools he used.
For those who missed us, you can catch up here on YouTube.
Stay tuned for next month!

February 2022

We had another productive virtual meetup in February; we had our very first Design Review where we focused more on the design, rather than the nuances of the Divi Builder. Sometimes we can spend so much time on something that we develop a blind spot for certain things that getting some open feedback can be quite beneficial.
Join us next month for our popular Q&A Meetup where you bring the questions and we’ll help you with the answers.

Thank you for your dedication, Dustin! πŸ’―

December 2021

We had 1 member attending the last Divi Tampa meetup of the year, out of 5 sign-ups. Most attendees were from Tampa Bay, but the one attending was from Columbus OH. We had very interesting discussions about creating breadcrumbs with a Divi plugin that activates the breadcrumbs module and on the process of creating custom headers and footers for different content on our websites. All-in-all this was a fun and informative get-together.

January 2022

Our January meetup had two participants from Tampa and Connecticut out of 7 sign-ups this month. We had a very interesting discussion regarding WooCommerce and Divi, legal requirements for websites (whether it is better to work with small businesses and startups or big companies), and how Divi makes the process easier for both the designers and the clients.

February 2022

We had 3 members attending, two from Florida and one from California. The discussion revolved around automation with Divi and the differences between using Global Elements and CSS-Presets throughout a website, as we are always looking for ways to make our pages easy to change when necessary and consistent in appearance.

You all make my heart swell with your community-building! πŸ’―
