  1. Hi Randy, great article. I’ve just upgraded our Company’s educational website using Divi. It still needs a few tweeks but I think it meets the design standard of the ones on your list. Social media is relevant for our students so having easy links to these is a must. Also, we show case our student’s achievements so having gallery items and easy to build projects to make sliders is one of my favourites.
    Kind regards

  2. Really good Samples.
    But was interesting to hear about the compatibility of the Divi with these plug-ins like LifterLMS, LearnDash, Good LMS – Learning Management System WP Plugin, LearnPress – WordPress LMS Plugin, WP Courseware by Fly and other Plugins.

    It would be interesting – a detailed analysis!

    • I would like this too.

  3. Just a really quick observation. over half of the sites using a Copyright claim are showing a past year… How good would it be to be able to set the year Automagically? ie, in customiser

    • You can easily do that by editing the footer.php file and finding the line that references the footer info and changing it to:

      Copyright © Company Name | All Rights Reserved.

      The “echo date” will automatically pull the current year.

  4. Hi Randy
    I agree Divi is very adaptable and I can’t think of any sector where it could not be used.

    Thanks for featuring two school websites that I built with Divi namely Accrington Academy and Crompton House Academy.

    These were very large projects some 200 plus pages each and I certainly used the tools Divi provides to help with the work flow such as templates and library items.

    The main areas were Divi excelled for me were the subject pages in both sites. The other advantage for the Accrington site was the ability to put in place three brand styles on the one site using templates and global library items. The main school, sixth form and the schools sports partnership sections are all styled differently.

    To add to your list and show a different sector I recently built a primary school website with Divi http://parkprimary.org a fun site very colourful with all year groups have their own colour theme chosen by the teacher and pupils.

    I am trying to specialise in school websites so I am currently looking for my next client so thanks for the endorsement of my work .

  5. I want to use divi as my website for selling online courses, anyone know a free or cheap plugin (yearly fee if any but not monthly) to use for the actual courses themselves, once someone has completed a section I want a X to turn to a tick or something similar so they can see their progress?

    • Learnpress, LearnDash, Sensei.

      Just know that building an LMS (Learning Management System) is an incredibly complex process. Be prepared to spend a few hundred hours if you’re building it out yourself.

  6. I want to use two boxes for commenting in two different div,any good resources over this about how can I do it perfectly for a responsive website.

  7. Would love to use Divi with Sensei and WooCommerce. Anyone know if A. Sensei would be compatible? and B. How to integrate it with Divi? I know it’s not merely a matter of adding the plugin.

  8. Well done! Great design!

  9. Yeah ! Divi theme is Lovely. Divi theme’s features are very good which attracts the most. Thanks for providing the examples.

  10. Curious about the menu on the Accrington and School of Stitch sites. I like how the logo stands above the menu and is centered. I don’t see this option available anywhere when I’ve tried to customize my menu. Is it done through CSS? Or am I missing something?

    • Hi that’s achieved through the theme customizer from header & navigation section open header format and select centered and then goto fixed navigation and check the hide logo image .

  11. I’m totally love divi. Divi rocks!!!

  12. Do you have one of these artlcles planned with Museum Sites done with Divi? I could really use some inspiration

  13. Thanks for this Divi.. I’ve been longing for this. I can get started pitching colleges around me…. I’ve got inspired.

  14. It would be nice to have the templates for these sites that you highlight so that we can remake similar sites, pages, sections, etc. that we like.

    It doesn’t do much good to show off something to us that we cannot necessarily reproduce without the knowledge of how to do it.

    If we had the knowledge of how to do it, then we wouldn’t need to highlight those sites.

  15. Anyone? Sensei and Divi integrations?

  16. Would love to see examples of Divi and LifterLMS.
