Welcome to Day 87 of our Divi 100 Marathon. Keep tuning in for 100 days in a row of awesome Divi resources as we count down to the amazing release of Divi 3.0 on the final day of the series!
There are only 13 days left in the Divi 100 marathon, and that means there are only 13 days left until the launch of Divi 3.0! Over the past week our beta testers have been pushing the limits of the new visual builder and we have been squashing bugs left and right. Things are looking really good and I couldn’t be more excited for the big day on September 7th. If you haven’t been following along with the Divi 100 marathon and are just hearing about Divi 3.0 for the first time, I encourage you to check out our first and second video sneak peeks that offer additional glimpses into this amazing update.
There are a lot of things to be excited about in Divi 3.0, but each new feature helps to champion a common goal: to give you the power to build things visually. What makes the new visual builder so special is that it allows you to edit your website on your actual website. You are no longer limited to a backend builder and its block-based representations of content elements. There is no longer a need to preview your content and there is no mystery as to how each adjustment will affect your design because the entire building process happens right before your eyes.
One of the best examples of Divi 3.0’s visual nature is the new In-line Editor. The In-line Editor allows you to add, edit and style text content directly on your page without ever opening a module’s settings panel. Just click and start typing! You can compose entire posts with a single column and text module and the experience is wonderful. Plus, the new in-line editor gives you additional options like custom fonts and text sizes. It’s perhaps my favorite part of Divi 3.0, and today I would like to give you a quick look at how it works. Enjoy!
One More Sneak Peek To Come
Next week I will be posting my final Divi 3.0 sneak peek, so be sure to follow along with the Divi 100 marathon to get a final glimpse at the new builder before we launch. In the meantime, let us know what you think of what we have shown you so far and stay tuned for the last two weeks of the Divi 100 marathon for your daily dose of Divi goodness 🙂
Divi 100 Day 87
The Countdown To Divi 3.0
This post is part of our Divi 100 marathon. Follow along as we post free Divi resources for 100 days in a row! This 100-day countdown will end with the game-changing release of Divi 3.0, including our brand new visual editor built from the ground up using React. Divi 3.0 will change the way you build websites with the Divi Builder forever!
Let the countdown begin.
Headaches, how to use Divi 3.0 without the visual builder. The prompts are getting in the way of my work. I like to old way of interacting with the website. Is there a way I can do my work using the old interface. Tq
@Nick – When you adjust the font size using the slider, there does not appear to be any way to tell the actual font size as a number?
Is this something that will be implemented?
Also Mark Fletcher’s and Nico S’s comments are helpful (25/26 Aug):
“When changing the colour of the ‘Type; text, I couldn’t see any option to enter a hex value” and “a site-wide color palette, with every color that has been used on the site would be incredibly useful.”
Hey, Elegant Themes!
I have a suggestion for the new version of DIVI, on the UX side.
I know DIVI is all about color-coding, but it’s a bit overwhelming. What if you used colored fonts and boarders, and the primary headers for windows were white or light gray? Or even transparent?
Looking good Nick.
Think I will be clearing out my calendar for the week after the 7th September. Will be having a few days playing with the new Divi.
Will the new Front-end feature from the Divi 3.0 theme also be standard in the Divi builder plugin?
Looks like front end page builders is coming to wordPress.
First WPMU then Elegant.
DIVI 3.0 using html5 boilerplate normalize.css?
Hello, this option looks great but how can I acces to this editor¿?
13 days left, awesome! Cannot wait! Been following these since day 1 and only 2 weeks to go.
Sept 7 can’t come soon enough, this looks fantastic! I expect it will save me significant time building a site. I just recently switched to Divi and I’m lovin’ it.
You’ve knocked it out of the park Nick Roach & Divi Team.
Looks great, can’t wait to get my hands on it … Have you tested in Safari (macOS Sierra) too? I do have with in the actual Version of Divi some issues with copying, pasting and duplicating.
Can you confirm in-line editing will work well in firefox. at the moment I have some problems when working in firefox. the existing module preview doesn’t work – or at least I have given up waiting for the “buffering” ring of doom to finish and present a present a preview. 30 minutes was the longest I waited just out of curiosity.
I don’t want my clients to be able to edit the design of the site. I’d love them to be able to add content on the front end so they don’t have to learn to use the Builder.
Will this be possible? 🙂
Hello, how can I use The New In-line Editor?
Will it be possible to create and edit this way woocommerce product pages? Thank you for the answer.
Should we be holding our breathe for an improved menu builder? Or should I go ahead and download a plugin designated for menu’s?
Being new to ET, having coming from other theme developers clubs, packages & memberships etc, I am in disbelief, of the awesomeness presented by ET and Divi, my heart skipped a beat. I was totally blown away by the announcement of Divi 3.0 new builder, not that I have ever used a builder before joining ET and using Divi. My point is; I find it hard to comprehend when reading hundreds of frequent positive comments on ET posts about Divi, however the odd few people who comment, as well as appearing grateful and excited, they seem to be “expecting” expecting, more and more for free, for goodness sake, It’s free, what more can one ask for, Its as if it’s a god given right to expect everything free. I mean ET has a life time membership where everything is available and it’s forever more free. There is only one other that I know of who has a lifetime membership available where everything is free, (premiumpress themes). ET themes has so much more to offer, We’re all totally spoilt rotten by comparison, and yet so many still expect more. Where’s the logic …. It almost hurts to see some comments along the lines of “I hope Divi builder has this or that, and I hope it does this as well as that !!! why would people even suggest more things they want for free. Don’t they get it, It’s free for goodness sake, slow down on the criticism, expectations, guilt trips and whining! what’s wrong with these people !!! :)) I am so grateful for the opportunity to even be a member of ET, it saves so much time slaving over a keyboard the old school way building from scratch. Nowhere else do you get this same quality of support, free resources, so many themes, and on top you get Divi and a brand new builder, with such brilliance it simply cannot be expressed in short terms. We have a beautiful positive community within ET, I can’t find words…. The culture here cannot be found elsewhere. Be grateful people. Goodness, I’m so glad I got that off my chest. Thanks for reading my little vent if you read it :)) and have an awesome day!
