  1. Thanks for listing our Rife theme in your list! Nice to be here:-)

    Huge optimizations are coming soon.

  2. Has Elegant Themes changed it’s policy? I have never seen disguised affilate links in articles before. This article is full of affiliate links and there are no disclosures. I guess I’ll have to look elsewhere for unbiased reviews and comparisons.

    • Looks like our writer made a mistake and accidentally copied in a few links with affiliate tags still in them. I’ve removed them. We haven’t changed out policy on affiliate marketing via our blog.

      • Glad that to hear this. I can now start recommending your articles again on the LinkedIn Articles & Events Community Group.

      • Hi Nathan, I have been reading the blog almost every day since joining ET Just prior to Divi 3, and have seen many affiliate links from time to time, therefore I thought it was normal, which is why I haven’t mentioned previously.

        I am now really glad to know ET has a “no affiliate links” policy. To be honest from a relatively new members perspective and avid reader of the ET blog, until right now, I had been reading any recommendations on the ET blog from a skeptical point of view due to seeing a few affiliate links in the past.

        Please would you mind giving an affectionate friendly reminder to your Blog Authors about the use of affiliate links, it would certainly help with confidence levels when deciding what suggestions and tips to try or perhaps buy. I would like to share your blog post with my contacts and friends, however I have not shared so far in case an affiliate link may be present in the post.


    • reasonable

  3. All well and good but all of the above are no where near a flexible as Divi and most if not all could be copied by using Divi – sorry you are still the only one for me 😀

    • I agree with your love of DIVI. But I have to say there SOME themes I really like. What I would love to be able to do is recreate those themes I love using DIVI. In fact, THAT would make a great tutorial/blog.

      For example, I want “Minimum” but I want to create it using DIVI.

      How about that?

  4. I love Divi but know that sometimes you have to work outside of this wondeful tool. The original FLOW theme layout is very appealing; is it possible to acheive the same using Divi?

  5. Great list of themes Donjete. Thank you for sharing!

  6. I am not sure why you are promoting Envato. I go out of my way to avoid giving them any money.

  7. Sorry but there are much better themes than this selection

  8. I feel like extra is neglected in WordPress , it’s a really great theme too. Nice list!

    • I say Extra gets a good sized Extra only update after DIVI 3.1 is released. The EXTRA theme has been getting the same bug fixes and special updates like fonts and borders.

  9. Sticking with Divi& Extra….

    How can one create the Rife header layout like this http://rifetheme.com/rife-14/

    Hope ET can create more menu header design and offer it for sells as modules…just hoping though 🙂

    • If you are talking about the slider I say that is a flickity slider.

    • Yes, it is flickity slider, but with our modifications to make it work in then end;-)

      I understand that level of Divi is hard to reach for any theme out there, but we will try anyway with our Rife Theme, even with 2 man team;-)

      Good job Divi team on creating such great community around your products!

  10. I’ll agree that there are some nice looking themes on Themeforest, but I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s been burnt by buying a theme and shortly after seeing support for that theme drying up when the developer moves on to their new theme. This has caused a lot of problems especially if the theme wasn’t written quite as well as you thought and breaks when a new version of WordPress is released. I now very rarely buy themes from Themeforest because of this.

    This is one of the reasons I switched to Elegant Themes as the support for their themes has been great, and I don’t just mean Divi or Extra. I’ve used some of their older themes and they’re still going strong!

  11. Divi Theme Is awesome!

  12. Divi is at #9.
    I love the list!
    Divi is the theme I like a lot.

  13. awesome one!
    Thanks to shear useful tips for beginners like me

  14. Now I have plenty of choice to select to. Thanks for the post. Great collection.

  15. I love Divi, but unfortunately it is very much part of the webshop part 🙁

  16. Will be sure to consider these 10 before I set up my next site!

  17. We at Web Choice UK have tried Elegant themes in the past, its always one of the fastest routes to take to get a great looking site on a limited budget. A word of caution though- some of the themes can be very slow and you will struggle to get even 60/100 on Google Page Speed analysis. Better to check the loading times and Google Page Speed analysis score to see if the theme is idea for you.
