Before the artificial intelligence (AI) revolution started, building a webpage required coding skills or hiring an expensive developer. For some, that has typically been out of reach due to a lack of experience or budget. That has all changed thanks to new technology that allows you to build entire web pages with a text prompt.

This post will serve as a Divi Layouts AI guide that will show you the ins and outs of this exciting new product. We’ll explain what it does, how it works, and how to easily create gorgeous web pages.

Let’s dive in.

What Is Divi Layouts AI?

Divi Layouts AI

Divi Layouts AI is a new product we launched, and it works alongside our flagship WordPress theme, Divi. The power of Divi and Divi AI combined makes it one of the best AI website builders currently on the market. It can create entire pages, help you refine existing copy, generate images, and add code, all with a text prompt. Divi Layouts AI can also create pages that are aligned with your branding by allowing you to provide colors and fonts. That way, every page you generate will have a consistent look every time.

How Does Divi Layouts AI Work?

Divi Layouts AI is built directly into Divi’s framework and works seamlessly with the Visual Builder. Thanks to its deep understanding of Divi’s codebase, it can learn from your website. It understands how every line of code and design module works, making it easy to create beautiful layouts. Divi Layouts AI acts like a designer, developer, and photographer all rolled into one.

Divi AI layout options

You provide a simple text prompt describing the type of page you need, and Divi Layouts AI will create an entire webpage, including text and images, complete with Divi’s design modules.  It skips the initial stage of planning and building a web page structure, giving you a head start on the design process.

Creating a Complete Webpage With Divi Layouts AI


Subscribe To Our Youtube Channel

To get started with Divi Layouts AI, you must purchase an Elegant Themes membership along with Divi AI. If you are already a member, you can skip the subscription signup process and purchase Divi AI separately. It is available for $17.04 per month (if paying monthly) or $153 per year.

In this Divi Layouts AI guide, we’ll walk you through the steps needed to create a webpage with AI, from the initial creation of the page to refining the output.

Step 1: Purchasing Divi Layouts AI

Start by heading to the main Elegant Themes website and navigating to the Divi AI page. You can sign up for Divi + Divi AI or opt for Divi AI as a standalone product (if you’re already using Divi). Click the SIGN UP TODAY! button to proceed.

For this post, we’ll assume you’re already an Elegant Themes member. Upon clicking the signup button, you’ll be prompted to log in to your Elegant Themes account.

Once logged in, you’ll be redirected to the Divi AI signup page, where you can add additional services, such as Divi Cloud, Divi VIP, or Divi Teams. If proceeding without additional purchases, click NO THANKS, PROCEED TO CHECKOUT.

Once you’ve made your purchase, you can view your Divi AI subscription information by clicking Account > Subscriptions. You’ll need an API key to use Divi AI in your WordPress installation. Generating a unique key for each Divi install is a good idea. To do this, click the Account tab and navigate to Username & API Key.

When the page refreshes, scroll down and click the Generate New API Key button (1). Once you generate the key, it’s beneficial to provide a label for it (2). This practice is particularly useful if you intend to build multiple Divi websites.

Generate API key

Click on the key to copy it.  You’ll need to activate Divi AI in the Divi Theme Options panel. Head to your WordPress install, log in, and navigate to Divi > Theme Options > Updates.

Step 2: Create a New Page

Now that you’ve added an API key, you can use Divi AI to build a webpage. Start by adding a new page to your WordPress website. Navigate to Pages > Add New Page.

When the page refreshes, give your page a title (1) and click the Use Divi Builder button (2).

Divi Layouts AI guide

You’ll have three options to choose from. You can build a page from scratch, choose a premade layout, or build with AI. Choose Build with AI and click Generate Layout.

Step 3: Providing Divi Layouts AI With Information To Generate A Webpage

We’ll walk you through the interface in this section of our Divi Layouts AI guide. When the page first loads, a dialog box will appear. This is where you’ll describe the type of page you want to create (1). Although optional, providing Divi Layouts AI with as much context as possible is a good idea. You can enter your mission statement and value proposition or simply write a short description about what your website is for (2). You can also specify fonts and colors to match your company branding (3).

Divi Layouts AI guide options

When instructing Divi Layouts AI to generate a page, start by describing your product or service and target audience. Doing so gives Divi a better idea of what to generate. You can even task it with creating compelling headlines that are SEO-optimized. Other things to consider are mentioning your ideal customer, describing any key elements you’d like to include, and mentioning any specific styles you’re fond of.

To make things easier for you, here’s a short list of tips to follow to craft the perfect prompt:

  • Clarity is Key: Be clear and concise when writing your prompt. The more specific you are, the better Divi Layouts AI can understand the look you’re going for.
  • Provide Context: Consider including information in the optional Tell Divi AI About Your Website field. Give as much background information about your product or service and target audience as possible.
  • Use Keywords: Include relevant keywords that describe your business or service. This not only helps Divi AI write content but ensures your page is optimized for SEO.
  • Refine and Regenerate: One of the best things about Divi AI is that you can generate as many layouts as you’d like. If your first attempt isn’t what you want, try again! The possibilities are endless.

Step 4: Using Divi Layouts AI to Build Your Page

Now that you understand what Divi Layouts AI is and what it can do, the next step is to start the page generation process. For this tutorial, we’ll ask Divi to generate a layout for a pet treat business. In the first field, enter the following text: Create a landing page for a specialty pet treat business. The company’s name is Critter Cravings, and it concentrates on all-natural ingredients.

Divi Layouts AI description

We’ll add a mission statement to the Tell Divi AI About Your Website field to give Divi AI the most information possible. Enter the following text:

Our company, Critter Cravings, is an all-natural pet treat business renowned for making delicious baked goodies for your furry friend. We handcraft each treat carefully, ensuring only the finest, wholesome ingredients make it into our recipes. From crunchy biscuits to chewy delights, every bite will surely warrant a bark or meow from your best friend.

Our treats are free of artificial additives, preservatives, and fillers, making them a wholesome choice for pets of all shapes and sizes. At Critter Cravings, we believe every pet deserves a little indulgence, and we take pride in providing treats that owners can trust and that pets will adore.

Divi Layouts AI optional field

Under Customize Fonts & Colors, you can specify the fonts and colors you’d like to use in your webpage. We’ll select Lato for the headline font (1) and Open Sans for the body font (2). For colors, select custom from the dropdown list (3). Use #000000 for the heading and body fonts, and select #F3764D and #6baaae for the primary and secondary colors (4). Finally, click Generate Layout to create your webpage (5).

Divi Layout AI fonts and colors

Divi AI will create the wireframe upon clicking generate, apply your fonts and colors, and generate text and images.

Step 5: Fine-Tuning and Customization

The next step in our Divi Layouts AI guide will show you how to refine your layout. Divi AI does a great job crafting beautiful pages, but sometimes, you may want to make changes.

Generating Images With Divi AI

Let’s start with regenerating an image for our hero section. Hover over the hero image and click the gray settings icon to bring up the image module settings.

edit Divi image module

With the module’s popup active, hover over the image preview and click the AI button.

replace image - Divi Layouts AI guide

This will bring up several options: generate with AI, edit with AI (where you can modify, expand and fill, upscale, or enhance your image), generate and replace an image, change the image style, or upscale your image. Let’s choose Generate and Replace.

edit image with Divi AI

Divi AI will automatically generate 4 new images for the hero based on the original. However, you can also generate a new image, which allows you to add a new prompt, specify image size, and more. You can choose from 12 styles, including photo, 3D render, drawing, and others.

Divi AI image styles

For this Divi Layouts AI guide, we’ll choose Photo for the style (1), add a brief description (2), select the landscape aspect ratio (3), and click Generate (4). For the prompt, we used photo of a loving and loyal dog, his eyes gleaming with anticipation as he savors each morsel of a succulent, melt-in-your-mouth, baked treat. You can be as detailed as you’d like, up to 200 characters. If you find yourself struggling to come up with a prompt, check out our post on the best AI prompt generators to help you come up with ideas.

Once Divi AI generates 4 images, we can click on one and select use this image (1) to insert it into the module. You can also generate four more (2), modify the image by generating more like the selected one (3), or enter a new description (4) to start over.

modify Divi AI image

Refining Text With Divi AI

Another great feature of Divi AI is its ability to refine text. Start by clicking the grey settings icon in the text module directly beneath the headline in the hero section.

edit text with Divi AI

Click the AI button within the text module to bring up the AI options.

Divi AI options

This will bring up a series of options for editing the existing text. Options include writing with AI, improving with AI, writing & replacing, and other options to edit your text with Divi AI.

edit text with Divi AI

Let’s select improve with AI for this Divi Layouts AI guide. A dialog box will appear, allowing you to choose the content type (1), what you’re writing about (2), and whether you want Divi AI to apply added context from the page’s content (3). You can also click the AI button (4) to have Divi AI generate a prompt for you.

write with Divi AI

Regardless of what type of content you want to generate, Divi AI can handle it.

Generating Code With Divi AI

Another huge benefit of Divi AI is its ability to generate code. It’s solely training on Divi’s codebase, making it unique from other large language models. This makes Divi and Divi AI a powerful tool for all types of users, from beginners to seasoned developers. You can also use Divi AI to build a code snippet library, help with existing code, and add all types of effects, including text animations. For example, if you’d like to add a typewriter effect to our page’s main headline, Divi AI can easily handle it.

To start using Divi AI for coding, simply open a module’s settings, navigate to the advanced tab (1), open the Custom CSS dropdown (2), and click the AI button (3).

Divi AI generates code

When the dialog box appears, simply type in the effect you’d like to create (1) and click the generate code button (2). In our example, we’ll use the prompt give the headline a typewriter effect.

Divi AI code prompt

Divi AI will generate and apply code with selectors and add it to the free-form CSS field. Click the Use This Code button to implement the code.

Step 6: Saving Your Webpage

Once you’ve generated a layout and made refinements to suit your needs, the last step on our Divi Layouts AI guide is to save the page. Thankfully, Divi makes that part easy. With the Visual Builder active, hover over the purple ellipsis menu at the center bottom of your screen.

You can save the page as a draft or publish it using the corresponding button at the bottom right of your screen.

  1. I see the ‘clone’ page/post option is missing once the divi ai is installed, is cloning pages still possible with divi ai?

    • To copy a page, click “Choose A Premade Layout” and select the tab, “Your Existing Page” in your Library. It only takes one extra click.

  2. DIVI AI is very good but it should be necessary to access a username and password to use it. Just as they propose, a website delivered to a client for whom you created the website four years ago with a divi license will benefit from DIVI AI, with the agency paying for said service. The logical thing would be that a former client cannot have access to it, only the one who pays for said license. Think about it. Thank you

  3. Used the AI layout tool on a divi site last week, copy of an existing site in a test environment. I found that once it generated a layout for one page, the subsequent pages it generated all tended to look the same….

    But I was hoping to find some various alternative layouts to compare and contrast and sort of see what was possible with Divi AI.

    Overall, I do love what it is capable of, but it also felt like I was getting painted into a corner with the resulting layouts (too similar).

    Is there a way to get Divi AI to start all over from scratch? or disregard its previous generated layouts?

    • Brett,

      To test the AI and see different page styles, I have used the same prompt on four different pages. By doing this, I am able to keep all of the versions to compare and share with the team. I did get four very different pages. Once you have a page you like, you can save the layout and use on the final site. Just a suggestion.

      • Thanks J!

        I will try it again later this week (taking a different site live soon).

        In one of the example videos I watched last week, before using the AI, someone used a layout available via Divi first, then had AI create something else from there.

        Next go around, I’ll try your suggestions (trying same prompt on different pages), and maybe also trying same prompt after first loading in a page layout or pack first.

        I’m unclear exactly what AI looks at in general, but it does seem to indicate that for the text part of AI it can look at the text on a page, the entire site or ignore the text.

        Maybe for AI layouts it looks at something more beyond the pop up window prompt boxes.

  4. Good start! Could also use the option to return to the original input screen to make changes and regenerate (like changing a font set or colors) while retaining previous settings.
