Welcome to Day 24 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!
Today we invite you to partake in the 2016 Divi Survey. This survey is important to us because it will help our team learn more about how you use Divi and how we can make it better. In addition, many of the questions included have been added to help Divi community members learn from each other. The survey results will be collected for the next 5 days, after which they will be compiled into an infographic and shared with the community next Wednesday! The more people that participate, the more we will learn and the more we can share. If you have a moment to spare, then we would truly appreciate your participation.
The survey is broken into several categories, so be sure to click the “next” button at the bottom of each page to continue to the next section. Don’t worry, it’s not too long and it will only take you a few minutes to complete 🙂
At the end of the survey you will find a series of open-ended questions where you can help inform the future of Divi by giving suggestions and feature requests. We value each and every suggestion, so don’t be shy and be sure to stick it out until the end!
How To Take The Survey
The complete the survey, simply follow along with the questions below. Most of the questions are optional, so if they don’t apply to you then you can skip on to the next one. When you get to the bottom of the current survey section, click the “Next” button to move on to the next page and the following series of questions.
I can’t wait to see the results and I am sure that we will be surprised and inspired by what we learn! Thanks again for helping us make Divi even better 🙂
Divi 100 Day 24
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.
My suggestion for a new module was for a Table Module for presenting tabular information. (You know, what etc was originally meant to be used for).
As it is, I have to muck about marking up my table data with html, paste it into a text module and write CSS to format it and make it look pretty. Not a task my Mum can do.
display custom post types! Im using the ‘Post grid’ plugin to display a custom post type on one of my pages because divi just wont do it.
It works wonderfully, but would be awesome if some of these styles were incorporated into the blog module too. I see a start with the article cards extension. its a beautiful addition.
Can not wait to contemplate this digital revolution. What was already great will be even better !
Thank you Sir Nick & Elegant Themes team for giving a survey!
Kindly add more on what we need nowadays — conversion tools (pages & plugins support)…
1. Layouts for landing pages
2. Layouts for thank you pages
3. Layouts for membership pages (and/or plugin) to protect & secure members & content
4. Countdown or scarcity plugin
In addition, we also hope that all those giveaways during this 100 days countdown to Divi 3.0 will also be in the members’ area. This is to eliminate the time we spent searching and looking for those valuable giveaways.
Thank you & more power!
Enable SSL on the entire theme.
I was reading an interesting article by Yoast about using SSL sitewide:
Not sure if/how it works exactly in regards to the Divi Theme as I haven’t tried it yet, but I could envision a simple checkbox “Enable SSL on entire Theme” which you could toggle on/off.
The article mentions having to search through themes for all http versions and changing them to Https.
One of the best things about Dive (for me at least ) is the ability to design without having to code. This would be a natural extension of that.
I hope I passed. +1 for sliders.
I completed the survey. Would love for more developer controls. Actions and filters throughout the output (pre-header, post-header, menu, content, post-content, pre-footer, post footer) and also within the page builder so we can easily make extensions such as more modules (a simpler way to do this) or different column layouts.
Very much looking forward to V3!
When will results be published or is this just internal use ? Very interested to see what the majority would say as i think this is what is going to shape the future of Divi 3.0 and beyond
loved that after a few years of use i finally have some feedback for a survey like this! can’t wait for what the next update launch brings
i think novices such as myself always fill forums with help requests for editing header, footer, sliders, & social media icons… so straightforward customization options and less actual manual editing of child theme would be nice (especially for clients who have bought lifetime access)
my biggest issue overall after getting more experience under my belt is seo compatibility, i can’t get satisfactory seo results with page builder; especially in blog mode!! all alt text on images disappears and excerpt text gets buried
modules need to incorporate seo… or maybe i just can’t see the forest through the trees
Took the survey. Good luck with 3.0.
I’d love to see your headers/sliders have the ability to make the background image clickable by default vs. just clicking on the button.
Also, would be great if Blurb module had the simple option to feature the blurb image/icon on the bottom.
I use Divi for everything and brag about it all the time, but there are a few things I really wants quite badly…
Woocommerce integration: I have seen some third party offerings for this but I really would love Divi to offer modules that allowed you to build product pages, place add to basket modules, product descriptions etc
Custom Headers and Menus: I feel this area could do with a little more customisation, the ability to throw a module or two up there, or change the background colour to a picture.
What would be amazing would be if there was some kind of custom section editor that allowed up to 6-8 sections. You could then group these in to quarters or halves, thirds etc, to make a more dynamic looking site.
Available fonts: I think it would be great if you could already include the available google webfonts, without the needs for a plugin.
Labelling sections: Yes I know you can label modules, but it would be very helpful to be able to label entire sections as well as giving that section a custom colour, instead of the usual green, blue, red etc… That way, I could scroll down the builder page and know, ok I am in this section, at a quick glance
Keep up the good work, Viva la Divi!
I’d like the ability to more easily (intuitively) and directly style the sidebar, any widgets that are being used on the site, and the search results and archives pages so that they would more consistently match the look and feel of the site.
Done! Will you publish the results of this survey?
I’d love to see a solid and well structured code inside Divi 3.0. Like standardized use of class names, optimized CSS use (no inline chaos like right now), use of good frameworks (maybe Bootstrap?) and in general a lot of the good development practices nowadays put into work.
I’m tired of digging into the source code and finding ugly things here and there that are coming from old standards and coding practices. Like JS or CSS inline.
I’d LOVE to be able to tweak all the styles in the modules and know that is going to generate a CSS asset that can be cached, minimized and even place in a CDN, instead of a ugly chunk of CSS inline (which is the reason why I end up not using the custom styling but a child theme).
Divi from the outside is like a Ferrari now, with the Divi builder and all the customization it allows. Now it needs to have a Ferrari engine in the inside as well, so when we developers take a look under the hood don’t see a horrible patched engine.
Done i really need to see results, jaja greetings from spain.
Done :). The best thing about this survey is that I know from experience you guys will actually listen to this feedback and try your best to please as many of our requests as is possible.
Cannot wait for 3.0 🙂
it would be great to be able to take the GPS data of an image/text and link it to a google map in the side bar 😉
That would make the creation of a simple photography site much easier.
Just finished the survey! Can’t wait to see 3.0 and start using it 🙂
I use a real computer – not the toys that others are reporting trouble completing the survey from.
To me the single biggest insult from Divi (you know – the membership I PAY FOR) is not being able to change the footer text from the options. Everyone knows the “use a child theme” answer is lame.
Come on Nick. Everyone knows you keep it that way for all the link backs you get from those that don’t know or don’t care. This is the only scumbag thing about ET in my opinion. The fact that not one single rep from ET has EVER responded to the request (besides the child theme thing) is even more telling.
Everything else – I like the path it’s on. 🙂
