Today I am extremely happy to announce the release of Divi 2.7. This version of Divi has some game-changing features that are worthy of excitement, including the all new Divi Leads split testing and conversion optimization system, a greatly enhanced Portability System, the addition of useful Divi Builder Page Options, and a super smart new Dynamic Help System that helps you solve Divi Builder problems without wasting your precious time. These are super cool features that promise to make Divi more effective, collaborative and user-friendly than ever before. Let’s dig in!

A Match Made In Heaven

The Divi Builder is already an incredibly powerful landing page builder. When combined with Divi Leads, it becomes the ultimate marketing tool. Not only can you build amazing landing pages, you can now put them to the test, analyzing and recording the effectiveness of your designs to help improve conversion rates and generate more leads.


The idea behind Divi Leads is simple: 1) Create different versions of your page. 2) Select a goal. 3) Let Divi Leads figure out which version of your page is most effective at converting to that goal. This is what is known as Split Testing (also referred to as A/B Testing).


Let’s consider a standard homepage. When someone lands on that page, you want to do everything you can to grab their attention and direct them towards your desired goal, whether that be clicking a button, signing up to your mailing list or purchasing your product. How might the intrigue of your headline affect the bounce rate for new visitors? How might the size, color and text of the button in your call-to-action affect a visitor’s propensity to click? How might the combination of these factors ultimately affect the goal at the end of your sales funnel? These are all questions that can now be answered using Divi Leads.


Test Anything

Since Divi Leads has been integrated directly into the Divi Builder, anything can be tested. You are not limited to testing entire pages. You can test individual modules or entire sections of content. Change your content, adjust your design and the position of elements to figure out what works through statistical analysis.


Add Unlimited Variations

You can create an unlimited amount of test subjects. Do you have 20 different headlines that you want to test out? If you have enough traffic to support it, then you can add all variations at once to figure out which one will surface as the winner. This saves you a ton of time compared to traditional AB Testing. Divi Leads all makes it easy to see which variations are most effective. All items are color coded based on performance, and conversion rates are added right into the builder UI.


Create Custom Goals

Not only can Divi Leads be used to test any element, it can also be used to test a wide array of goals. In Divi Leads, anything can be a goal. Is the purpose of your page to increase clicks to your Call To Action module? Simply assign the Call To Action module as your goal. Is your goal to increase lead generation through your Contact Form? Well then simply assign the Contact Form module as your goal. Do you want to increase sales? The eCommerce module can be selected as a goal too. No matter what you select as your goal, Divi Leads will determine relevant engagement stats and track them to figure out which variations best accomplish the goal that you have assigned.


Divi Leads supports off-page goals as well, which means you can track both on-page conversions while at the same time tracking conversions at the end of your sales funnel using our custom tracking shortcode.


For example, you could test the effectiveness of your current page at increasing clicks to your “Product Features,” button, while at the same time using the custom tracking shortcode on your purchase confirmation page to see how your current test affects not only clicks to your product page, but ultimately how it affects product purchases at the end of your sales funnel.

Incredibly Easy To Use

We built a custom UI for Divi Leads that makes building new tests super simple. Simply right click on any element and choose “Split Test” to begin. Divi will prompt you to select your goal and then your test is ready to go! Your test subject will be duplicated and you can begin configuring both variations. Over time Divi Leads will track the effectiveness of both versions, which can be analyzed using the custom stats interface.


Powerful Stats & Insights

Divi Leads includes all kinds of great stats, all of which are consolidated into a brand new stats interface. Divi Leads will track clicks, sales, conversions, bounce rate and goal engagement metrics. When a split test is running, a new animated stats icon will appear.


Clicking this new icon will bring up loads of useful stats for the current split test. These metrics are tailored towards your specific test based on the goal you have chosen.


Import/Export Divi Builder Layouts

We have greatly improved the import & export system for the Divi Library. It’s now easier than ever to transfer Divi Library items from one website to another, back them up or share them with your friends! The new UI is beautiful and easy to use.


You can export any number of items from your Divi Library or export individual layouts as you build them right from inside the Divi Builder. Divi packages these exports into a JSON file that can be imported into any website.

Encoded Images

One of the major innovations with the new portability system is that it encodes your images right into the export files. When you import your layouts, the portability system automatically adds these images to your Media Library and updates the URLs inside the layouts to match your website. No matter where you import your layouts, they will work like magic right out of the box! This turns Divi Library Packs into independent and incredibly easy to use design templates.


The Power Of Library Packs

Divi Library Packs are now incredibly versatile. Think of them like mini pre-made templates inside of Divi. When combined with custom images and design settings, a collection of Divi Library items can be used to create an entire custom website and then re-used on future projects. Since each item includes images and the custom design settings and CSS added to the page and elements within the Divi Builder, library exports are completely self-reliant.


Start building up your own personal collection of Divi Library items to use for your future clients. Jumpstarting your next website is going to be lightning fast! Export your Divi Library items into packs that can be shared with your friends or sold to your peers. The new portability system lays the groundwork for a thriving Divi Library community.


Theme Options

Theme Options are now portable as well. You can export your Divi Theme Options and import them onto a different website, or save your favorite Theme Option presets to jumpstart your next client build.


Theme Customizer Settings

We didn’t stop there. The new portability system extends to Theme Customizer settings as well. Now you can download all of your Divi customizations. Considering the huge breadth of settings available in the Theme Customizer, countless different website styles can be created. Now you can save these as presets to use on future products, or you can use the portability system to transfer settings from one host to another.


Import & Export Divi Roles

Divi Roles can also be imported and exported. This brings the portability system full circle, having been integrated into every single part of Divi and the Divi Builder.


Download Our First Free Pack Today!

To celebrate our new portability system, and to show you just how awesome Divi Library Packs can be, we have designed a beautiful new pack that you can use for free! This pack includes 3 amazing layouts that you can use right away.




To use the layouts, simply update Divi, Extra or the Divi Builder plugin to the latest version. Next, download the layout pack below and unzip it on your computer. Within the Divi Library, click the “Import/Export” button at the top of the page and then select the JSON file you just downloaded. These layouts will now appear when you click “Load From Library” inside the Divi Builder.

A Brand New Set Of Options

When using the Divi Builder, you will notice a new settings icon at the top right of the Divi Builder interface. Much like the settings that exist for modules, rows and sections, settings now exist for the entire Divi Builder page. Here we have placed settings that affect the entire page, such as margin and color defaults. It’s also used to enable/disable page-specific features, such as the new Divi Leads Split Testing system.


One of my favorite new features found in this new set of options is the Custom Color Picker Palette. Here you can choose a color scheme for your page. Every time you open up the Divi Builder color picker, your color palette will appear in the color picker for easy access.


You can also enable a site-wide color palette in the Divi Theme Options! Once you set your website’s color palette in ePanel, every time you use the color picker your chosen colors will appear.


Also found in the new Divi Page Settings is a Custom CSS Box that can be used to add custom CSS to the specific page you are working on. This is much more convenient than adding CSS to a Child Theme or within the Divi Theme Options where you would be forced to target specific post IDs and load the custom CSS on your entire site where it is often not needed.


Help When You Need It

When the Divi Builder fails to load, you will no longer get the spinning wheel of death with no clues as to what might have gone wrong. Now the Divi Builder knows when it fails and it tries to figure out why. The Divi Builder detects common problems and gives you solutions. It will look for things like memory errors, wp-config misconfigurations, unwanted cached files, outdated theme and WordPress versions, plugin incompatibilities and more. This is the beginning to what we hope will become an even more robust self-help system in the future.


Extra & The Divi Builder Plugin Get It All!

Not only have we updated Divi, we have also updated our Extra theme and our Divi Builder plugin will all of these amazing updates. No matter what Divi Builder product you are using, you will also get access to the latest Divi Builder framework and all of its latest and greatest features.

    • Yes these guys Rock!

    • I can’t wait to try Divi out ?

    • All the best.

    • I am very impressed with this theme and have been using it for quite a while on our organization’s website. Its the only theme I would go with now. Totally love it! Keep up the good work guys!

    • What I would like to see is that we can have the modules with the title we give….like suppose the module text + an short explanation of what is the title of the module…..because sometime if you have a large one page site we know where is what.Thks

  2. Just WOW – once again ?

    • Agreed. This is the best theme out there imo.

  3. Hi Nick, this is the best theme ever in WordPress. Need to add some header and some page option too.

    • The ONLY thing holding divi back are the limited header and navigation design choices. Hoping for a more robust header soon.

      • Totally Agreed on the header part.

      • Same here!

      • …….and me

        • me too, the header needs more options.

      • Ditto. I’ve tried with help from support. CSS, etc. Just can’t get it the way I want. I love DIVI and I can’t wait to play with the new stuff.

      • +1 for more robust header

      • Excellent Theme, I agree to work on a full header

      • agreed 🙂

      • Definitely agree with the header. Everything else is so customizable, and it just lacks in comparison.

        • 100% agree with the Header and Navigation part

      • me too.

      • Agreed. The Divi theme technology is going strong… but the actual design is falling way behind.

      • New headers for all!

      • great theme! agree on header and navigation 🙂

    • I agree! This would be icing on the cake.

    • Couldn’t agree more.

    • Yes! Navigation and header options are delicate at the moment, this really needs some attention.

    • +1

    • Logo Sizes are complex and difficult to deal with using css.

    • Agreed. I would love the capability of adding different navigation headers on a per page basis.

    • Agree. Header, header nav and footer customizations needed!

    • Agreed with the header. I also would like more options in the portfolio and the gallery. I miss more personalization.

      • Header and menu section is weak

  4. It’s just… amazing !

  5. Awesome!

  6. Looks so awesome!!

  7. I want it.

  8. It’s just… amazing ! Really good job

  10. Excited to start playing with these new features!

  11. Woo hoo!! Can’t wait to try this out! Thanks for keeping the awesome upgrades coming.

  12. The DIVI leads will help my clients better understand how to improve their site. I’m loving how many of these upgrades are eliminating the need for external plugins. Each upgrade is making ET my go-to for building sites. I have rarely went outside of ET. #InLove

  13. Impressed as always Nick!! This is AMAZING!! Can’t wait to play with the split testing system!

  14. You folks must be in heaven with the overwhelming success of Divi.

    Congrats to all of you. And oh yes: THANKS!

    Charlie Seymour Jr

  15. Divi keeps getting betterer and betterer! Split testing? Dooooooope!

  16. This Divi 2.7 looks solid will look into this soon.

  17. Great looking release update! All of these features are useful, but I’m especially excited to use the split testing feature. That’s a great tool for optimizing hero images, CTAs…anything. Nice work!

  18. I love it, great job.

  19. Can’t wait to try it out! And thanks for the free layout pack!

  20. Seems awesome. I’ve a question:
    If I added 5 call to actions to Divi leads, which one will be displayed on the frontend?

    • The way Divi Leads works is that it “splits” your traffic so that some people see one variant while others see another. This is how you can get comparisons on which one works the best. The more variants you test at one time, the more traffic you need to make a statistically significant test.

      • What is the ideal number needed to begin split testing?


        • 10 000 page views per testing version.

          Maximum 1-2 tesing elements at the time.

        • We’re actually going to publish a blog post very soon about how to make sure your Divi Leads test results are statistically significant.

    • Nice question, being waiting to ask this and it is now being answered. Thanks ET team, keep rocking it and we will help the world we have the edge with WordPress+Divi Builder

  21. Im using divi for many internal projects with great success, next step is publishing our brand new full featured corporate site.

  22. Excellent!

  23. I love this! Thanks to Nick and his splendid team.

    • And I love too 😀

  24. I love these new update features. Can’t wait to try them out.

  25. Nope – updated files not available yet – but then I am probably the first to see this post!

    It’s great that these new features are included in Extra too – but shouldn’t the priority be to make sure that the Extra theme itself is updated to fix all the bugs? Maybe there are fixes in the update too – we can only hope?

    With all the new split testing & stats features, will this not make the database crazy big – and subsequently slow down the site? Just wondering…

    • I agree with Andrew. I’d love to come back to ET but the Extra theme needs a little bit of Extra Love 😉

      • Yes, thats true with the Extra Love ‼️

  26. Awesome! This update meet my needs! :))

  27. Wow! This is great! So happy to have a lifetime membership 🙂

  28. Thanks !!!
    It would be very good if you can ad in “Divi Builder Page Settings” the posibility to choose a specific menu for the page

    • That would be nice, but if did a google search for:

      CE WP-Menu per Page

      You will find a plug that will work for the primary menu though.

      • Thanks Richard ! I will take a look

  29. I post this request with every new version release. Wil you please add the option to include simple PHP code in the text Builder. None of the most common PHP code plugins work as the Divi Builder parses the code and escapes it. So for the forth upgrade in a row, please add this next time.


    • Hi Bob, you can use the code module for PHP.

      • Nathan

        Could you please show us a small example how to integrate PHP in the code module ?

        Up to now, this seems not to work straightforward.
        Like Bob, I experienced to need the use of a plugin to insert PHP in the page.

        $fp = fopen (“blahblah.json”, “r”);
        $contents = fgets ($fp, 255);
        fclose ($fp);
        $result = json_decode(substr ($contents, 7 ));


        Thanks for your help

        • Whoops! Sorry guys, I was mistaken. You cannot use php in the code module.

          To quote Dustin from our support staff, here is why:

          WordPress Editor doesn’t allow PHP and since the underlying base of the builder is the WordPress editor, the same rule applies.

          PHP belongs in theme/plugin files. You don’t want to store PHP in the database. That’s why you can only use HTML/CSS in the editor.

      • Thanks Nathan, but that does not work. I do not need a separate module, I need to embed the php code within a text module. For example, include the current date in the middle of some text.

        I have used the very popular Insert PHP plugin on many non-Divi WP sites. It works perfectly with all of them, but not Divi. I have tried other PHP plugins and none of them work with Divi either. They all result in in parse errors.

        I contacted ET support 6 months ago and they said PHP code is not supported. So if you have a way to make inserting small snippets (a line or 2 for example) within a text module, I would be very interested in seeing it actually work.

        [insert_php] echo “Hello World”; [/insert_php]

        • I agree that this would be a very powerful feature. It can be done via a plugin system, but even allowing the PHP plugin to work would be good..

        • Second this!

        • I’ve managed to run PHP code with Divi.

          On a page I need to show dynamically a value in the circle counter. The value comes from the database so there is no other way.

          1. I created the layout of the page with the builder.
          2. Copied the Divi “code” from the source (right click-view page source)
          3. Create a new page – use the standard WP editor in text mode, insert your PHP code within the [insert_php] placeholders, and let the PHP echo the copied Divi code with your own PHP generated stuff.

          Works fine for me 🙂 Not really flexible, but does what I need.

        • I would create a custom shortcode in the functions.php file with the PHP code, and then use the shortcode in the text module.

          • I was going say the exact same thing. Much more flexible and you can use attributes.

            • What Espen said (and Mark backed up); custom shortcodes are definitely the way to go!

              I’ve done this in the past; if this is somewhat of a big deal for people, it would be possible to explain it in a blog post in a bit more detail.

              • Oliver, Espen, Mark, thanks for directing me to the right direction. I’m relative new to WP.

                I’ve created a custom plugin where I define my custom shortcodes, and is working just the way I need. Sooo easy…:)

                Note for Divi developers – you should allow shortcode to be entered in the circle counter value, so I can replace it with the value from the DB. Currently only allows numbers.

    • hello.
      i use the PHP Code For Posts
      works perfect. just updated

    • The ‘Code Snippets’ plugin works great with Divi.

  30. Very nice upgrade! Congratulations! Don’t forget “custom post types” for next version.

    • One of the great things about the Divi Library and the ability to create post and page layouts with it is that for most instances in which someone might want a custom post type you’re already covered.

      • Does it work for woocommerce product pages ?

      • The CTP plugin doesn’t play nicely with divi. Posts and categories made with custom tax do not show up within blog module.

        • 🙁

      • I cannot load custom post types into any of the DIVI modules.. This in itself would be excellent.

        We needed this recently in the Blog module but the only selectable taxonomies come from the POSTS, it would be excellent if we could use “Events” or other plugin post_types.

        This would be extremely powerful for us as we do use a lot of custom types in slightly larger sites.

    • I would suggest Types.

      • I dont think DIVI supports TYPES in its modules ?

      • Yes, exactly. I use WP-TYPES to create the CUSTOM POST TYPES, events, books, collections….

        But if I want to show them, there is no DIVI MODULES that support CPT.

        And….. Beaver Builder Plugin has it.

        • WP-Types recently released an integration with Divi (and a handfull of other builders). I haven’t tried them together yet though.

  31. Marvelous!! Great work!

  32. Please tell me you can now get rid of the divi attribution in the footer without messing about. If so I will be delighted…

    • I wouldn’t bet on it. Been asking for that for the last year or so….

    • Oh man. I’ve been asking for this too. I had a child theme to do this that caused all kinds of problems with my site. This is a no-brainer, unless the developer prefers to push their marketing onto our sites.

    • I also want to support that wish

    • Obviously that is not yet done. Regarding this feature request the developersame just ignore user request and force us to setup a child theme each time. Shame!

      • That’s not really a bad thing – to be forced to do a child theme, is it 🙂

      • It is a must to have a child theme in my opinion.
        As for replacing the Divi attribution – that’s easy: just make a copy of the footer.php file in you Divi-child directory and replace the relevant code with your own. It takes about 10 minutes to do.

    • Enter the following CSS into the Custom CSS box in the Apperance/Divi Theme Options
      #footer-info {display: none;}

      • I’m guessing most of the people here know how to do a simple display: none, but that’s not the issue first of all, and second of all I WANT a footer. I can’t think of ANY premium theme that doesn’t let you edit the footer. There is no reason other than them counting on people forgetting to edit their theme footer file every time there is an update so they get additional marketing for Elegant Themes. It’s ridiculous and even though I do like Divi, it’s the single reason I’m not renewing and just going with Themefuse when my year is up.

        • Agreed. It seems very underhanded to make us jump through so many hoops to use our own footer text. Edit the php files to put text in the footer? That’s ridiculous! We use Divi so we don’t have to mess with stuff like that. Plugins always just cause more trouble. It should be a standard part of the theme to let us enter the footer text we want.

          We should also be able to easily add a footer when using the blank page template.

    • When someone ask you to marry, they should not deny you that small kiss on your chin. And if they do…. They should never start talking about disabling plugins. And if they do talk about plugins at all in the middle of the marriageparty, you should maybe start reconsidering your partner.
      For me so far: great flirt, promising partner, wonderful new dress. Elegant theme, make sure to change that little piece of underwear before you propose! 🙂

    • I am about to try out Aspen Footer Editor as i have been using a child theme to enque a new footer php and it is time consuming and messy.

      i wish that something like Aspen Footer Editor was incorporated into ET themes or maybe a plugin which I could use on the older themes.

      Like others, I have been waiting a long time for this facility which is really a basic necessity.

    • This is the single reason I won’t be renewing. I’ve been using Divi and also Themefuse’s Unyson framework with their Core theme and I will be going with unyson only from now on. This refusal to allow us to edit the footer without going into php files drives me nuts.

      • Hi Abel, I fee your pain and I’ve been there before. I’ve done enqueued line of code, the standard way to make child theme, it messed up my site with Divi. However, It was said that I have to continue with the import line of code which works well but count it as a drag but continued to use it when I have a nosy tech-type of client. But lately, one of the ET support team suggested Orbisius child theme plugin which makes it perfect to create child theme with header, footer, function.php and style.css at once. I never looked back even when I can create child theme manually but remembered we’re in automattic age! Though, I support you and every ET members longing for this small piece to be sorted out to give us the leverage to update the footer.php credit in a simple manner without replacing the code manually into it in either the parent or child theme.

        • I agree with @ bb
          it is a need for all premium theme to be able to edit the credits in footer. It seems ET still need more links to its website !? What annoying thing for all developers using ET.

        • Totally agree, orbisius child theme has been a staple item for all my work for a few years now. always works with ET themes, but is dodgy with a lot of Evanto rubbish.

      • This is the one and only reason I didn’t renew this year. Until this becomes a part of Divi they won’t get one more dime from me. The fact that they have never even once acknowledged the issue just proves their greed.

    • You should be using a child theme if you want to make edits. On your computer, create a “Divi-child” folder, and then create a style.css file with:


      Theme Name: Divi 2.7 Child

      Template: Divi

      Theme URI: http://www.elegantthemes.com/gallery/divi/

      Version: 2.7

      Description: Smart. Flexible. Beautiful. Divi is the most powerful theme in our collection.

      Author: Elegant Themes

      Author URI: http://www.elegantthemes.com


      @import url(“../Divi/style.css”);


      Copy the Divi footer.php file into the Divi-child folder. Open the copied footer.php and edit around line 40 where it has:

      <?php printf( et_get_safe_localization( __( 'Designed by %1$s | Powered by %2$s', 'Divi' ) ), 'Elegant Themes‘, ‘WordPress‘ ); ?>

      and change to:

      Site by MyCompanyName • Copyright 2016

      After you have that done, ZIP the folder, upload it to your site and activate the child theme.

      • A.L., good advice, except for one small detail: Child themes implemented by @import of the parent theme template is considered a deprecated method.

        The preferred method is enqueueing the style sheet via a function. See:


        • Hey! Thanks for the info — good to know!

    • I use a divi footer plugin for that and works like a charm. Eliminating use of a child theme for that. Called Divi footer editor.

      • Where did you get a Divi footer plugin? I would like to try it.

    • go to Divi > Theme Options
      enable body code, then in the
      Add code to the (good for tracking codes such as google analytics)

      add this code (edit the “your text here”) – works great

      /* shout out to http://updateyourfooter.com/ */
      var copyrightYear = new Date().getFullYear();

      // your footer message, replace with your message.
      // Make sure there are the right number of open and close QUOTES! wink emoticon
      var footerMessage = “© Copyright “+copyrightYear+” your text here.”

      document.getElementById(“footer-info”).innerHTML = footerMessage;

  33. I love these updates. The color palette alone is worth the update. haha. Keep crushing it guys. great work.

    • I am darned if I know how the colour palette works. Looking forward to some info on that

  34. NICE ONE! This is an absolutely epic update! congratulations to the whole team.

    One thing I would love for 2.8 is the ability to have scrollable/swipeable rows. With this row type you would be able to add any of your existing columns and modules and have them slide in on a timer or swiped through like the header slider!

    Keep up the excellent work!

  35. awesome ! was kinda hoping for new header options and modules but this is already an amazing update even without it ! will play with it ASAP

  36. Great update guys! GLWS

  37. Very good! Things I have been waiting for!

  38. yayy cant wait to test it all!

  39. Have been looking forward to this since I saw the hints in Feb. Can’t wait to try it out, clearly the team has been analyzing the gaps. There’s still some css/theme granular control that I think is needed, but these features look awesome.

  40. Great news! Divi gets better with each update, particularly being able to export and import between a test site and a live site.

  41. Brilliant stuff. Will explore it later.

  42. I was about to write to suggest palette and css per page options… 🙂

    I guess all is missing now is an official ET marketplace to sell our packs.

    Great job once again!!

    • look into divi.space They have a way to sell ET related child themes, plugins, etc. And from what I know, very low rates.

  43. Oh, I thought this update would be to Divi Theme only, I am excited to see that it will be available on Extra Theme aswell. Great job ET team, I can not wait to test it! 🙂

  44. It looks amazing!!!

  45. This is absolutely great news. Just eager to use this for the redesign of my webdesign company website.

  46. Brilliant update! Thank you 🙂

  47. Great new features! In particular, the new Split Testing really sets Divi apart from competing WP themes.

  48. #1 request on my list is an easy way to turn off the “Designed by Elegant Themes” at the bottom. It’s as if Adobe insisted on adding a “Made in Photoshop” to all our photos…

      • I beg to differ. I used the child theme generator recommended by you guys in the video, followed the directions exactly, and it caused all sorts of problems on my site. After trying it a couple of times, I just deleted the child. There’s a ticket I can reference.

        You need to listen to your customers. Why did I have to waste hours trying to deal with this simple thing and then not have it how I wanted it in the end. We’re paying a premium for Divi.

        • Oh man, I’m so sorry that happened to you Bob. I can assure you that is not normal. I’ve done the exact same process countless times and thousands of others have successfully followed that tutorial to do the same thing. If you’re still having trouble with it please follow up by creating a new ticket in support.

        • I beg to differ with Bob. All I’ve had from ET customer support are great experiences. quality representatives and good listeners.

          Plus, if you don’t know how to set up a child theme or omit a line of text from a footer, I don’t think you should be designing custom websites. Don’t blame ET for your ignorance.

          • Well Dan this needs to be a theme default though and not something that needs to be done by a child theme.

            • touché 🙂

              • Fartoush

        • It’s actually easier to hide it with css than bother with a child theme. I’ve had similar issues with child themes before so I agree that can be wonky.

          Try this to see if it works: p#footer-info {display:none;}

      • But why do you keep on providing a workaround to remove this in stead of make it a theme option? This is the number one request of all times and Elegant keeps on ignoring this request with every update. Why?

      • When someone ask you to marry, they should not deny you that small kiss on your chin. And if they do…. They should never start talking about disabling plugins. And if they do talk about plugins at all in the middle of the marriageparty, you should maybe start reconsidering your partner.
        For me so far: great flirt, promising partner, wonderful new dress. Elegant theme, make sure to change that little piece of underwear before you propose! 🙂 And a little PS: Nowadays its pretty normal for a partner to keep her own name even after marriage.

        • This comes up every update. The real reason they don’t change this is likely SEO. Leaving this generic text in the footer leaves a link to their website on thousands of sites. This is a huge marketing advantage.

          I completely agree with this decision. It is part of the cost of the product. ET products are VERY reasonably priced. Part of the price is the free advertising that comes with every single theme they sell.

          Customers may feel entitled to have a certain feature in a product, but ultimately the company decides what kind of product to produce. As a consumer you can choose to buy it as they built it or buy it somewhere else. Many of the people that complain about this feature probably will not take their business elsewhere because of what a great deal ET products are.

          • We use divi footer editor, no need for a child theme, easy plugin for Divi and Edit the entire footer.

          • Hi Mike,

            You are completely right, the internet is the ultimate example of the free market, if I do not like a product or service I can simply open a new tab and go elsewhere.

            However, When signing up for ET they do not state that you will have to carry visible branding for them on every site that you develop.

            Having this link in the footer totally devalues the product. Yes ET are very reasonably priced for the quality of their themes but as I cannot have sites running with this in the footer it means that my $89 subsciption…is…well….worthless…..which makes ET a very expensive supplier of themes for me……

            The product was advertised as a “Code Free WebSite Builder”

            If I cannot build a usable website without editing code then it is mis representation.

            I think that ET’s response to this has said it all.
            1) Ignore the issue
            2) Offer pointless short term workarounds

            The fact that they are now offering workarounds means they know customers, understandably, are not very happy with what is effectively enforced link spam on a paid product…..

            My level of Coding ability is irrelevant to this discussion. I should not need any to utilise this service…..

            It is a simple fix at the development end, every other paid theme I have ever used offers a simple Control Panel edit of the footer text. There is never any need to go and install plugins or edit PHP to simply remove their branding……

            Anyway…..if this is not resolved I will be voting with my feet and my wallet come renewal time…..it is ultimately their choice but it is distasteful, spammy and a tad underhanded.

            If a few enforced backlinks are more important than happy ( paying ) customers then so be it……their call mate……

            • Exactly. I check back occasionally when they update to see if this has been fixed. I will not buy it until it has been.

              Mike sez:
              >As a consumer you can choose to buy it as they built it or buy it somewhere else. Many of the people that complain about this feature probably will not take their business elsewhere because of what a great deal ET products are.

              Many of us simply don’t say anything. We check back, see the same rubbish, and leave. We DO take our business elsewhere. I doubt I’m the only one. Look above at commenters who have not renewed due to this issue.

              Dan sez:
              >Plus, if you don’t know how to set up a child theme or omit a line of text from a footer, I don’t think you should be designing custom websites. Don’t blame ET for your ignorance.

              Pompous much? 😀 I can make child themes all day long – the point is: I should not have to. That little line should be changeable by default without going around my elbow to get to my thumb every single time.

              From their own words:
              Our plethora of Shortcodes, Page Templates and Theme Options give you full control over your website. Manage your site like never before by using the countless powerful features that come packaged with all of our themes.

              “Full control” = except for the pieces we don’t want you to HAVE control over.

              See you next update.

    • Agree. Most themes allow you to do that simply via the Customizer, or even simple CSS which doesn’t revert back to default with each update. Given you pay premium, it should be the last thing you need to “worry about”.

  49. Didinlt think the next updat would be a big one and Wow! Amazing new features 😉

  50. Wow. Can’t wait to try.

    On another note – do you have a blog post on how you created that awesome header SVG animation?

  51. I am constantly impressed by the updates you guys have over here at Elegant Themes. Makes me happy I went for a lifetime membership every time I see a post like this.

  52. So excited for the color palette to remember my colors!

    • Right?! It seems so minor but I absolutely love this new feature.

      • Am I missing something, or is there no way to make the existing pages/posts built with the builder use the Theme wide palette? WHen I create a new page/post I get the global palette I created, but when I edit an existing page, it seems to have the default palette. I like that we can define it by page, but there needs to be a way to clone the palette to existing pages.

        • Elegant Themes Blog | Mike replied to Nathan B. Weller on Divi 2.7 Has Arrived, Including The Divi Leads Split Testing System, Improved Portability & More!unsubscribe

    • +1!!

  53. You guys are just plain MAD. And freaking awesome too. Nick for President!!!!

  54. Now if only DIVI could be made to be a front end builder.

    It is my fave back end builder by a long shot for speed and ease of use, but it needs to get out of the dark ages and into the light!

    I think a front end version built with Elegant Theme’s attention to detail would be fantastic!

    • Let’s just say, you are going to really like Divi 3.0 🙂

      • 😀

        • I’m sorry, but what’s a front end? (I’m just 3 weeks old into this)

          Thank you!

      • Great update as usual!!!!! Its like having xmas every few months…

        Daves comment about the front end is interesting……
        I use Beaver builder and Divi both but that gets strange at times… Beaver builder is the best inline editing building tool around…

        Divi builder has the foundation to be like Beaver Builder on the front end so this would be awesome !!! I would upgrade but I’m already a life time member… keep up the great work and support.

      • I’m looking forward to see the Divi 3.0 Front End Builder replacing Beaver Builder!

      • Yes, yes, yes. Did I say, yes? #<3

      • Yesss Please!!!

      • Wow!

  55. Noooooo !!!! lol… i just updated all my divi sites to and now i have to do it all over again lol ^_^

    I hate you guys 😛

  56. Keep it up ET Looking Great.

  57. Whoww, this seems to be really great.
    A lot to read, a lot to test, but can’t wait for playing with it !

  58. Dope! Hope I can win the free upgrade. Looking forward to working with Divi 2.7 and excited for the future of Divi.

  59. Awesome, can’t wait to test out the split testing capabilities!

  60. Awesome! the new features will be very useful for any business. Also facilitate use the color palette. Amazing!

  61. Can’t wait to get started! Keep up the great work!

  62. Great news and great theme 🙂

  63. The page specific settings are fantastic!

  64. Looks great! The Split Testing and Page Options, in particular, sound awesome.

  65. This is awesome.

  66. Can’t wait to upgrade my client sites with this new feature! Thanks for all of the updates!

  67. really nice!!!

  68. Amazing! Thank you!!! =)

  69. Divi, Divi, gimme just a little smile

    Sunshine, sunshine Divi

  70. I’m using divi since day 1, but it’s getting better and better with every update 🙂 well done guys, and thanks for this awesome theme!

  71. As I tweeted to your Twitter account. I love Divi 2.7, you’ve made my job so much easier. My current project is for a non profit and I can now help optimize their efforts so much easier. Thank you.

    • Thanks! I think Divi Leads is going to help a lot of organizations improve their effectiveness online 🙂

  72. Another awesome update, can’t wait to try out the new features! Thanks Nick and team!

  73. Nick, Will the divi builder in Extra have these features also?!?

    • Yep, and the Divi Builder plugin too!

  74. Awesome awesome awesome!

  75. Unbelievable! This Update is really great and I am really happy about it.

  76. A great update, thank you !!

  77. The work on Divi 2.7 has been amazing so far but I choose Extra for my main site and now I’m begining to think I was left out. When would this changes will affect Extra (if any) and when do we plan on getting Extra updated?.
    There are even major several bugs in Extra that are still not fixed and a lot of us are still using older version of Extra because of said bugs.

    If this situation continues I may be forced to go back to Divi and abandon Extra alltogether.

    • All of these features are included in Extra and the Divi Builder plugin 🙂

      • Yeah I see the update on Extra already, thanks for letting me know !.

        Do you happen to know if the bug were fonts were not changing dynamically on Theme Customizer had been fixed?. I reported this bug on the forums but there were not fixes on

  78. Thanks sooooooo much for this update! The Enhanced Portability has me sold on Divi/Elegant Themes for life! I make websites for churches, but have always wanted to give them the power to do it themselves. With some training, I could productize their sites using the Enhanced Portability, without having to reupload the images. That is a huge thing for me.

    Divi for life!

    • Glad to hear it!

    • “I could productize their sites using the Enhanced Portability, …”

      Your make a great point

  79. This is a great update. Thanks for the hard work. I would love to have more options for the main navigation bar, such has putting the logo on the right, text on the left, and determining how far down the container the links sit. Sometimes it would be nice for them to sit at the top, or the bottom of the container. Also we need more options such as on hover colour, creating a line above or below the link, or creating a coloured background behind each link.

  80. Great news.

  81. Awesome, I am excited! is there a place where we can share and download each others designs?

    • Not yet…for now I would encourage everyone who wants to share with each other to host their creations on their own blogs/websites and share them via the various Divi Facebook groups.

  82. It looks amazing!
    But with this new update, our pages and modules configuration, Will they be affected?
    Thanks ElegantThemes!!!

    • This update will not change your current posts or pages–beyond making these new features available of course.

  83. Is divi leads another word for analytics?

  84. With Conversion Rate Optimization becoming more important than ever, the timing could not be better for this update. I can’t wait to test some new landing pages!

    • I’m excited too! I’m actually working on a Divi Nation Short all about conversion rate optimization with Divi Leads 🙂 Stay tuned!

  85. I’m going to love the built in split testing features of Divi 2.7 – That will make life so much easier as I work with clients to produce the best results for their pages.

    • Let me know if you create any case studies as a result. Would love to see them and possibly share with the whole community.

  86. Super awesome great!!!! Thnxs foor the amazing new features. I quickly finish my diner and start testing right away.

  87. great initiative

  88. Just keeps getting better and better! Thanks for all the work!

  89. I love to work with Divi. And again, it just keeps getting better.
    You guys are raising the bar for WP themes, thanks for all the work that goes into this, you’re making WP more beautiful.
    2 thumbs up.

  90. I’m so glad I switched from X Theme to Divi. Love how much time and money the lifetime membership saves my business.

  91. one of my fav update releases so far…. i love the new functionalities of divi!

  92. fantástico!

  93. Great job guys! Looking forward to checking all the new things out!

  94. Looks great, some features may come in very handy!
    I’ll take it for a spin as soon as possible! 😉

  95. I love the look of the new features and i am just at the stage of looking for a new theme for my new personal brand so this could work brilliantly. All I’ve got to do now is win one of the giveaway prizes to get it implemented (Crossed fingers & toes!)

    Keep up the good work ??

  96. Amazing upgrade! You are good!!

  97. Great new options! Especially love that you can now export the theme settings. So useful! Also excited to try out the testing features. Divi has made me fall in love with WordPress despite my background with Drupal.

  98. Just curious how the system delivers the different versions. Does it automatically rotate between the different versions using the same url? Can you set the ratio to control how many times each version gets served?

  99. Woohoo!! A/B Split testing, i know my whole mkt department is gonna looooove this… me? more work!!!!

  100. It is really exciting to hear such an amazing upgrade… 😀

  101. Looks good guys, any idea on when you’re planning on implementing proper responsive image support? Having the ability to disable/enable modules based on three breakpoints is fine and dandy, but it’s triple the work for what is often very simply just a need to serve a lower resolution/size image to smaller devices, which WordPress does natively now.

  102. Just one word in french

    J’adore !

  103. This is a wonderful and incredible update. I can’t wait to be through writing this comment to start having fun with the new Divi. Thanks Nick and the ET team.
    No time, gotta dive in my Divi… Bye!!!!! 😀

    • Have fun Pablo!

  104. Can’t wait to try the new Divi features.

  105. Nice upgrade! I like that’s you’ve upgraded all the Divi-product with these new tools, such an addition!

  106. Hi Guys,

    Good job and kudos for your continuous improvement. I’m a bit dissapointed though. I feel flexible changes should be allowed on the Divi header and footer in terms of customisation. Every Divi theme seems to have the same header & footer format with little options of making changes.
    More also the customisable post header which is still not adaptable site-wide or on existing posts.
    Maybe you could include it in the future releases. Once again. Good job guys.

    • The Divi Header is very flexible if you master the Theme Customizer settings, especially if you play with font styles and transparency, and choose from one of the various header styles. We are always looking for ways to add more customizability though. What else do you want to be able to change in the header?

      • I think Zion wants what I want which is some of the modules to go in the DIVI menu.

        A DIVI header option that also includes one widget area above the primary menu would be nice as well.

        More than just four social media icons in the top menu without the need of having to use a child theme.

      • Hi Nick,

        Thanks for the response.

        I was referring to blog post header. I’m aware Divi has options to customise the title header of a blog post. There is a tutorial on how to achieve that on the Eleganttheme blog page. However one issue that kept propping up was the inability to apply the desired changes across existing posts.

        • “I was referring to blog post header. ”

          I agree Zion. While there is a lot to love about ET as a company and Divi as a tool the options to manage and manipulate blog layouts and blog posts themselves are much thinner than they need to be.

      • More flexibility on logo and menu positioning would be amazing… drag and drop positioning and resizing almost!… for static headers vertical and horizontal and drop down on scroll… flexible widget areas too… more bells and whistles for header creation please ET… (“Customizability” did you just invent that word Nick???) … Epic work as always ET… Boldly going where no theme has been before!!!

  107. Good work!
    pls add new header layouts as well.

  108. Great job guys!! You consistently reinforce the value of what you offer through merit. Thank you!

  109. Amazing! I can’t wait for the option to make a default page layout with divi builder, and just use the content editor for new posts, easier for the clients to add new posts.

    • Now THAT would be a brilliant update!!

  110. This is amazing, thank you all for your hard work! Can’t wait to play around with the new features.

  111. Great job I expected for a long time, fabulous!!!!

  112. This is freakin brilliant!!! Keep up the great work!

  113. Looking at the feedback I see there is talk of major bugs with Extra. I am just about to build a site with Extra… so my question is: Have the bugs been fixed with this new version or am I better off using Divi ( I will be building a site which s better suited to a magazine style.. but certainly don’t want the frustration of finding lots of bugs!)

    Please can one of the Elegant Themes team advise which direction/ theme I should choose if I am to have the easiest construction experience?

    Many thanks..

    • Divi, Extra and the Divi Builder plugin have been updated, and each includes dozens of bug fixes. We are always working hard to make sure our products are running smoothly. It takes time to iron out all the bugs, but you can feel confident in choosing either Divi or Extra for your project.

      • Thank you Nick for the encouraging response…

        • Paul, I’ve been working on a site with Extra and have not had issues. I’ve been enjoying the theme.

      • Hi Nick,

        May I ask, is there an issue with Divi and WordPress visual editor? I understand that when switching from one theme to another, the content format also changes – I can live with that and reformating my content was always a none issue. However, with Divi, it is impossible to format my content back to its original form. After installing Divi, I’ve spent countless hours reformatting my content with no success.
        I’ve tried all types or workaround and still not getting the original look of my content.
        Issues are specific to line spacing, paragraph spacing, bullet points, positioning images and last but not least, Divi does not capture thumbnails automatically neither are vertical lines separating blog post. Tried the “divider” that did not work.

        • Hi Rosanna, sorry you’re having those issues. Please create a ticket in our support forum so that someone on our support staff can follow up with you. http://elegantthemes.com/forum

  114. Great news!!1

  115. Looking good! Thank you!

  116. looks awesome. Cant wait to use all the new features…expecting to see a big jump in the number of layouts available to download in the community… another job very well done by the ET team 🙂

  117. Still would like to see some better compatibility with Jetpack’s Shortcode Embeds. It still clashes with Divi’s YouTube embedding for video post thumbnails. I need that enabled so I can use some of the other shortcode features for things like BandCamp since I create music and videos. I, and others, have complained about Jetpack compatibility for almost 2 years and it always seems to fall on deaf ears.

  118. Great job guys! in recent months you have created a product that is simply …. Woooow!

    I’ve never been a lover of the “Builder”, but Divi is simply spectacular!

  119. Fantastic! Thanks for all of your hard work! I’d love to know how to make the mouse controlled parallax and animation you have at the top here! I love it! Been looking for a feature like and couldn’t find it in Divi so far! Looking great! 😉

  120. I now built pretty much everything using Divi. Love what you guys are doing with this awesome theme.

    The only addition I’d like to see is the ability to hide the menu system so I can create stand alone landing pages.

    Looking forward to playing with the new features!!!!

    • Hi Darren, good news! When you create a new page you can select the “blank page” template in the Page Attributes meta box. This will remove the header and footer so that you can create standalone landing pages.

  121. Looks awesome! Upgrading now. Thanks for always hearing us out!

  122. Increible actualización… Gracias!

  123. Great!
    Keep up the good work.

    I’m very happy about the portability and new theme options.

    I love that you guys really work on that which the user community is missing in your products.

    For me, subscribing to ET has been the best asset investment so far.

  124. A/B split testing – awesome!

  125. I want this!

  126. I had the subscription, looks like its time to renew it.

  127. Another awesome feature upgrade to my favorite go-to theme platform. Nice work team!

  128. I have a few sites I am building now I will upgrade on. Very interested in the A/B Split Test

  129. Simply BRILLIANT !

  130. Sweetness!! I was just working on a project where I wanted per-page CSS, and a few of the other little gems in here.

    But I think the big news here, and I can’t wait to play with it, is the split-testing stuff. Very cool!

    The downloaded & imported file has almost no content … please update! Thank you!!!

    • Hey – I can’t upload the library pack either. I’ve done it many time before (with other packs but this isn’t working. Stalls at 1% then says “This file should not be imported in this context.”

      Would like to resolve this if anyone has any ideas?

      BTW – I’ve tried lot’s of themes from lot’s of place. ET simply rocks and is building a really solid community around a great product.

  132. It just gets better each and every time!

    Love DIVI!

  133. The new features look amazing. Can’t wait to test them out. Great work!

  134. This is super awesome. Divi have go so far! Happy my site to grow with DIvi.

  135. Responsive images in builder modules? Awwww….

  136. Good stuff and look forward to learning all of this!

    As for feedback, I agree with the previous comment, and would love to see more header options, like placing a logo above the menu and specifying a logo size on mobile instead of the crazy-small one available now.


  137. Fantastico!

  138. What’s already amazing becoming even better! Thank you!

  139. I cannot wait to try out the split testing feature. Thank you Divi team!

    • Happy testing 🙂

  140. Great!!
    Powerful plugins and divi builder are successor of Elegant Themes. I waiting for DIvi 2.7 since last week.
    Posts from Elegant are very support to me.
    My sites are clear , beauty and functional with elegant themes.


  141. great job, thanks for et-team time for build divi theme (y)

  142. you’re awesome.

  143. Once again you have done an amazing job! Looking forward to using the new features

  144. Divi just sounds better and better!

  145. excellent job done as always

    • Nope, just checked… the bug is still there 🙁

  146. I’m excited about the colour picker settings and exporting Divi Builder layouts

  147. The marketer in me CANNOT WAIT to start split-testing!

  148. I’m looking forward to using a site-wide color pallette.

  149. I’m very appreciative of the new free library packs but are there full-page examples of each of the About pages without having to look at empty preview pages? Maybe I’m not looking in the right places, but the small images in the post don’t give the full picture.

    • Sorry about that Sharon. They are free though, so you can simply download them and import them to get the full picture 🙂

    • +1

  150. Im so excited to try all these new features!

    Great Job ET.

  151. Really Awesome Update!

    If only we could use the DIVI builder on header and footer of our pages as well. Instead of the DIVI footer I often just create a global section that I manually paste into each page and of course is also add at the bottom of all templates for that site. I realize headers are a much more complex area, but please consider giving more options in both.

    Love & Light

  152. Game-changing, revolutionary and simply mind-blowing update!
    Hats off to you guys, yet again! 🙂

  153. Good job! Cant wait to try the new divi features.

  154. For that I have great respect for Divi – this is what you in a TIMELY MANNER, you are in format “must have”, and develop and relevant. Thank you!

  155. It just gets better each and every time!
    Love DIVI!
    Thanks ET…

  156. Does it have custom posttype support or a module to display eg: blogmodule?

  157. Divi has really turned out to be the most loved theme so far and continually improving.

    Good Work guys.

  158. Vai ter melhorias na performance?

  159. I was alREADY impressed, but this was….wow.

    Very excited to try out the new features!!

  160. Always exciting when you guys dream up something new!

  161. Good job guys! It’s awesome.

  162. Great job!

  163. Nick, you and your team never cease to amaze. Must renew membership now!!!!!, i must rebuild my site.

  164. Since I know Divi, it changes a lots, better and better, thanks guys!

  165. I just wanted to enter the contest!

  166. As always… Great work!
    Thank you guys!

  167. Amazing! I will try it this week.

  168. Will def. Use the custom color palette! Nice update!
    I also second the suggestion to remove the “created with” in an easier way than today. Should be enough with a checkbox.
    But still – nice update.

  169. Looking forward to trying out these new features

  170. Gracias, gracias, gracias. Thanks a lot for your work. Thats awesome.

  171. Fantastic update! I am glad that I chose Divi.

  172. Thanks guys! Divi plays a huge role in the business I do!

  173. This new update looks like Divi is developing in the right direction to my new needs. Congratulations.

  174. Coming from Joomla! I am violently happy to discover the agility of Divi

    • violently happy!?!?!?!?!

  175. I think the split testing is a fantastic addition to the Divi builder and am looking forward to working with it.

  176. Spot on. Never resting on your laurels.

  177. “You can also enable a site-wide color palette in the Divi Theme Options!” Wonderful addition!

    • A simple feature, but I know this is going to make a big difference!

      • I can not see this yet in the Extra Theme. It still says “Global Accent Color”. Will this be added?

      • The color palette is AMAZING when it shows up, but it doesn’t always show up when I’m using the color picker. Any idea why? For example, when choosing the colors of social media icons, my palette doesn’t appear.

      • How cool would it be that when you change a color from the default palette, that color will also be updated everywhere it has been used on the website?

        That way you can quickly swap out a color without you having to go through every module on the website.

        • Brilliant idea!

  178. Son unos Genios!

  179. Hi team,

    Do you have a live demo of new layouts?

    It will be now a bad idea to know and to see what download and upload.


    • I am afraid not, but you can import them easily with the new portability system to test them out 😉

      • Hi Nick, left a comment earlier. I can’t import the library pack as a few others have noted. Not sure why – I’ve done it on other occasions with previous releases. Any ideas?

        PS – Thanks and keep up the great work – not just a solid product but I really enjoy the community built around the ET products.

  180. I’m looking forward to trying the A/B split feature. I also very much appreciate the ability to customize each page without CSS’ing myself to death in the child theme. 🙂

  181. Good stuff! Another great update from Divi. The new split testing feature looks fantastic.

    Well done guys!

  182. This is a great upgrade. I hope that future updates include a front end editor to keep it simple to edit for clients.

  183. Consistent updates like this are so very appreciated. Continue making all my wildest dreams come true.

  184. Looks so awesome!!

  185. Split testing seems interesting…wondering if this takes a lot more resources when enabled? Portability is a key feature for the future of all EG Themes with the Divi Builder Plugin.

    • It will take slightly more resources because it adds an addition ajax request, but it should be fairly minimal. We also have some controls that allow you to reduce how often stats are cached.

  186. Great to see all these enhancements. I like the side wide custom colour pallet. That saves keeping notes in a separate file!

    When will translation files be updated? I reported several issues with the Dutch translations months ago (ticket 491444). A fix is not mentioned in the release notes. Also, 3 months ago someone in your support team mentioned you are working on a translation service that customers can use to help translating. When will that be launched?

    Thank you!

  187. Hi, abou split test
    Can I test two difference sections in the same page? like header and text format, for example.. a multivariable test?

    The result is separated for each sections or the combinations of all variations?

    • You can run multivariable tests within a single test subject, but you can only have 1 test subject per test. The item being tested can be altered in any way, so it’s up to you to decide which variables you want to change.

  188. first theme I know that integrates split test function… I wish you all the best, looks a very good shoot.

  189. Congratulations!!! Been waiting for this for soooooo loooooonnnngggg!!

  190. In a hurry to try 2.7 and the free template, I have an issue with the file “divi_library_pack.json” (once unzipped).
    The end of the Json file is corrupted on the one I’ve unzipped.
    Have you checked the one available through the link of this post ?

    Thanks a lot.

    • It seems to work for me. What do you mean exactly when you say the file is corrupted. Did you open the file and see something in particular?

      • Hey Nick

        Thank you for your test involvement.

        What I have seen :

        Downloaded the file twice, unzipped twice : same results.

        1) opening the file with TextMate is freezing the editor
        2) opening the file with TextWarngler is not freezing the editor (1 line and 6825493 columns !!! = 6.8 Mbytes)
        3) the Json file is not terminated with the expected ‘}}} ‘ characters. If the unzipping is correct, there are missing parts of the file and the Json format is corrupted.
        4) looking into the file, I’m also surprised to be requested to upload files that are referenced on ‘localhost:8888’ which is somehow your computer (unreachable from my home 🙂 !!
        5) despite all this I tried to upload from the new divi builder, it starts uploading but finished with a message “this file should not be imported in this context” (my context was a brand new empty page !!).

        Hope it helps.

        Anyway, I love your Divi !! Just fix it.

        By the way, have a look at topic : viewtopic.php?f=22&t=492580 😉


        • Same here when trying to import the .json file: “This file should not be imported in this context.”

          • Import the layouts from within the Divi Library

      • Hi again

        Thanks to Pat’s message, I’ve understood where to import the Json file into the Divi Library. My fault, I apologize.

        Concerning the Json file integrity, it appears the issue to be real. The last image to be uploaded scripted like this in the file : “http:\/\/localhost:8888\/wp\/wp-content\/uploads\/2016\/02\/017.jpg”:
        {“encoded”:”\/9j….. is not correctly ended with ‘}’
        Result is that image “017.jpg” is not uploaded into the Media Library.

        Last remark, I don’t understand why localhost is involved, but I don’t mind anymore as long as the import process will work that way 🙂

        Waiting for more free template.
        Thanks a lot.

        • Elegant Themes Blog | Patrick replied to Nick Roach on Divi 2.7 Has Arrived, Including The Divi Leads Split Testing System, Improved Portability & More!unsubscribe

        • I’m getting this error when trying to import the new layouts: “this file should not be imported in this context”

          What am I doing wrong?

  191. Elegant themes never cease to amaze me! The Split Testing feature looks really awesome!

  192. Love the updates! can’t wait to see what’s coming up next…

  193. I’m seeing lots of 3rd party plugin issues failing to load the Builder on my staging site, I gave up trying to track it down as I don’t have time right now, but even your own Elegant Themes Updater plugin is causing issues for the builder in my installation with all other plugins turned off.

  194. Amazing updates.

    Keep up the good work!

  195. Thank you Nick & ET Team! Awesome update.

    Maybe you can work on a module to manipulate the feck out of the header <3

    • ePanel got a new look in 2.6, but none of the options changed. We still need to update the images in our docs, sorry about that.

  196. Oh my… this is crazy amazing. My schedule is blown up now that I get to go mess with my A/B tests! Thanks ET! Wicked awesome.

  197. I feel lucky to have discovered Divi!

  198. Amazing !!!

  199. Awesome job!

  200. Wow! Raising the bar, yet again!

  201. Great work guys good to see the divi theme moving along would love to see some code tidying in future releases especially the css it is getting pretty huge.

  202. Well done. Thak You.

  203. With Exporting/Importing and sharing of Library elements does that open the door for malware, undesired changes or other “bonus” content?

  204. Awesome cool features of Divi 2.7 new release! Especially with Divi Leads feature.

  205. I have installed and it is completly amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Good work.

    I am very happy

  206. So…with Divi Leads, does that mean Bloom will be going away? Do the two work in tandem?

    • Hey Benjy, don’t worry Bloom isn’t going anywhere. It’s a great email opt-in plugin with it’s own statistics tracking separate from Divi Leads–which is necessary as its forms can appear outside the builder as pop-ups or fly-ins.

      Right now you can sort of use the two tools in tandem by using a Bloom shortcode to embed a form in a code or text module and then setting that module as your split test goal. However, that will not track conversions, just generic clicks on that module.

      Instead, what I would recommend is using the Divi Builder’s optin module and set that as your goal. This will allow you to use Divi Leads to guage your real goal conversions on landing pages while Bloom can be used in other areas and in other ways across your site.

      • Nathan, is it possible to use opt-in module as a pop-up? I tried to find the way, but failed

      • “while Bloom can be used in other areas and in other ways across your site.” Gonna write about that in like layman’s terms?

        All this emphasis on split testing and lead capturing (which of course is great!) while keeping the text box input field itsy bitsy small and cropping and/or distorting tall images shoved aside.

        Cos for some, our images are what bring in the ppl. Ya know that, ET blog discusses how vital are images.

        Can ya pls talk to like regular folks? Artists? Photographers? Hobbyists? Ya know, the majority of ppl out there in WP land. Just a simple request. Thanks. 🙂

  207. Awesome. My “go to” keeps getting better each time.

  208. I have been using Divi for a non-profit group, for about a year. I really love the template and each time you improve it, I’m very impressed. Now I am considering getting the theme for my own business website.

  209. Brilliant work – Divi just gets better and better … amazing!

  210. Wonderful upgrades. Looking forward to enjoying the new features!

  211. Very excited! The A/B Testing really adds a new layer of sophistication that I didn’t dream was possible at this price point.

  212. Hi Divi. I live the design of divi , the its not that good. i thin you should do some like “primerumcodingMCP” there is a lot of things to do. plz do something like this.

  213. wowwww. A lot of great stuff. Very curious about!

  214. Well done! Nice work. I would Love to Try it.

  215. HI Nick. Loving the new features. But there is another side of the world not fully enjoying Divi and that’s a real shame.
    I have being asking for 2 years that you fix the mobile stacking issue for RTL sites. Ignoring this absolute crucial fix for us in the middle east is unfortunate and while there are messy work arounds that I as a developer can employ my clients will never be happy with Divi until its is solved.

  216. The page specific CSS feature is huge for me!!

  217. You guys are amazing!
    You make me look like a webbdesign wizard 😀

    Thank you!!

  218. You guys are amazing!
    You make me look like a webbdesign wizard 😀

    Thank you!!

  219. Awesome, looking forward to test the new features out.

  220. Keeps getting better & better! Love it!

    • Can’t wait to try the new functions in Divi 2.7

  221. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better.
    Cheers guys for the great work!

  222. I look forward to trying the Split Testing feature!

  223. Very Cool!

    Hope to see A front end Live preview for the next version.

    thank you.

    • Same for me

    • You’re in luck 😉

  224. I’m a newbie here but looking forward to seeing what Divi can do.

  225. Man, this A/B testing is going to be a game changer. Thanks Nick and the Divi crew, what legends.

  226. Wow! First time I have been speechless.

  227. Happy to see all that new stuff!!!

  228. So exciting. I can’t keep up with you guys!

  229. Divi Leads is a game changer. To have that baked right in makes Divi – in my opinion – the best site builder by far. Amazing job as usual!

  230. ET, you folks ROCK! The new Divi enhancements are truly amazing.

  231. Wow!

  232. Awesome features!

    But as I can see, only one active splitt test per page is allowed? Would be nice if I can start more than one…

  233. Watched your products and blog last week, and just been wondered by your quality and design. Today, it’s just impossible to not to buy =) So, now I’m in the club! Can’t wait 😀

  234. Amazing, I had started to play with the A/B/C testing…
    but how to import the Free Library Packs (to big in my wp), where I can download it with Filezilla ?

  235. would love to get a membership !

  236. Great job…

  237. wow its awesome update from Divi, thank elegantthemes

  238. This is indeed beautiful, but how do I update my theme as it stated that there is no automatic updating.

    • Same question here!

      • Never mind, I figured it out: there was an error in my credentials. Works like charm now!
        Great job guys!

  239. Awesome features!

    First theme I know that integrates split test function…

    Great Job…

  240. Wow… I just can’t even with Divi. Great job!

  241. Nick, two issues which drive me nutty.

    1) Text or HTML field: why soooo small? Such a tiny little window to input data?

    I usually have to write it all out in TextEdit, then copy/paste into the actual Text module. Then add more coding, cos hey, I don’t wanna hand code every post!!

    I sometimes input a graphic w/the text, so things get really difficult with that tiny field. Just like this comment box. Tiny!

    2) Images. I love LONG tall images. Pinterest loves it. Ppl love infographics. BUT no, Divi insists my images be wider vs tall. So Divi crops or distorts my carefully crafted image.

    I also cannot use Featured Image. When ppl search a category or keyword, they only get Post Titles and a few lines. NO images. We know ppl love images.

    IF I use Featured Images, I get tiny, cropped and/or distorted images.

    When I use the same image directly IN the post, so we see exactly what I created, now I have that tiny bad image followed by the larger image.

    3) IF that doesn’t make sense, I can send screen shots. I’ve asked tech support, I’ve asked the FB Divi group, and everyone laughs at me!

    Like I’m doing something wrong. Or silly to want tall vs wide images.

    There’s also BlogStomper and other programs which compile lots of pix into one collage. TALL collages.

    I’m not crazy. Just a famous internationally published punk photographer. I just wanna showcase those and other photos.

    I’ve been a long time ET fan and customer. But these image issues keep being ignored.

    Any thoughtful feedback is appreciated. I say that, cos saying I’m crazy or these issues are not important really doesn’t help the situation. Which is why I’ve been silent for awhile. Thank you.

    • OMG!!!

      You do realize that the editor EXPANDS as you type correct?

  242. I am excited about the troubleshooting feature. Great updates!

  243. LOVE IT!!

  244. Since DIVI I need no other WordPress Theme more …
    DIVI keeps getting better …

  245. LOVE IT!! Great Job guys

  246. Cant wait to A/B teste everything

  247. You guys are awesome! I can’t wait to try some of the new features that just rolled out. I’ve only started using Divi about 2 or 3 months ago but I’ve been able to build 3 websites already. That would have taken me 2 months!

  248. Woah guys. With each update you keep out doing yourself. Spilt testing? Are you kidding me! The best addition yet.

  249. Here’s a great idea, I think:

    Have an ET dashboard module that will show us the results of all our A/B testing (we can scroll through the different page/post results) without having to go into each page/post.

    So awesome!

    • Thanks for the suggestion Justin!

  250. You guys and gals continue to blow my mind with your foresight and the thought that goes into these new features. It’s very clear that you are building Divi with designers in mind.

    Thank you.

  251. We are in the process of migrating our web site from HTML to the DIVI theme. It looks like Divi 2.7 will help us finish the job, as we essentially try to clone the original site in Divi.

  252. Love the inbuilt A/B testing, looks amazingly simple and very useful.

  253. This a a really terrific set of upgrade features! Can’t wait to use them to make my site even better than it already is in Divi.

  254. I was using optimizely for ab testing. Thank YOU for putting this in and eliminating that expense!

  255. This looks amazing! Can’t wait to try it all out!

  256. you guys are doing a great job with Divi when it comes to static pages.

    Though, I think Divi should be more woocommerce oriented so that I can use it for the e-shop part of my site.

    Indeed, you can display product categories with Divi but there are no sorting options or breadcrumbs. And as far as I digged, Divi doesn’t have a single grab on product pages..uuuh?


  257. Awesome once again!
    I hope the caching issue with categories within the portfolio module has also been resolved.
    Keep up the great work 🙂

  258. Thanks for working so hard to keep improving Divi for us.

    • I agree. Thank you for improving Divi. I have recommended Elegant Themes and Divi to many people.

  259. Excellent updates for this wonderful theme. Thank you. Doing a great job.

  260. This looks amazing, can’t wait to try it out!

  261. Thanks for the great updates.
    one thing to say that ,after importing the new design pack ,now I cant review the imported designs.

    How would be possible to review and see them with out creating any new page or post from them?

  262. Thank you so much!

  263. I’m so excited to have this A/B …c…d…e… testing for some landing pages we are building. Great work.

  264. Can’t wait to try this out, the Split testing is perfect for a site I was workign on this week!

  265. Looks awsome. Just when I’m about to start a new project – perfect. Thank you.

  266. Awesome!

  267. All looks great, but experience tells me to wait until at least the 3rd version update before updating client sites. Giving time to sort out plugin incompatibility and other coding problems.

  268. Bravo!

  269. Divi has always brought something cool and exciting features as compared to other premium wp themes. Would like to try split test feature of this release.

  270. Ya baby…

  271. Thank you for improving Divi. I have recommended Elegant Themes and Divi to many people.

    • Thanks for the recommendations John!

  272. Excellent! Confidently upgraded to Lifetime Access. Just keeps getting better!

  273. Thanks Nick & team for latest upgrade to Divi — ET’s premium “Swiss Army knife” for WP marketing sites.

  274. DIVI is the future of wordrpress themes!

  275. Thanks for updated! Divi keeps getting better and better with each new release.

  276. Wow guys, you were right: This is BIG news! Can’t wait to try out the new feature. Is is horrible that, after all your hard work, that the customised colour picker is my favourite addition? It will make my life so much easier than having to keep copy/pasting # codes every time 🙂

  277. Good work! 😉

  278. Awesome stuff

  279. Absolutely cool updates. Divi has tranformed into a full fledged wordpress theme design universe. A lot to explore.

  280. Speechless… 🙂

  281. This is an amazing update so far to Divi! Great work guys!!

  282. Can’t wait to try this new feature in one of our new projects.

  283. A/B testing and color option are just perfect! This way clients can always add things in pages and don’t loose their brand color palette 😉

  284. Fantastic upgrade, I wast just looking for the possibility to do split tests! The only thing keeping me from using Divi or the page builder on all my sites now is that I can’t use traditional fixed-width sidebars with it. Would it be possible to have an option in a future release to use the page builder only for the content part of the page instead of the full page? Here are three reasons why I would love this option – well in line with the marketing idea of this release:

    1) I could have two _small_ sidebars on wide screens – this keeps the page still content focused, but allows twice the number of links -> more clicks -> more time spent on page -> better search engine rankings.

    2) for the standard sidebars there exist plugins which allow to keep widgets like the email subscription to be sticky -> better conversion.

    3) fixed width sidebars allow pixel perfect images -> best compromise between quality and size.

  285. Very nice! 🙂

  286. Looks like a great update, can’t wait to try it! 🙂

  287. Good Job, the Divi Leads functionality sounds awesome.

  288. AWEsome! you guys are creating a whole new website building system within WP… soon to leave WP behind and be on your own? haha.. wow wow wow.. and now it comes in a weekend where I won’t have a second to test it! Just loving it from the preview! wow wow wow!

    • Thanks Van! We love WordPress and don’t have any plans to break outside of it just yet 🙂

  289. Amazing work guys! I really expected this version.

    I support the HEADER part.

    Thank you!

  290. Great!

  291. One word: Awesome!

    For the color palette, could it be possible to add a field for hex code or rgb?
    That way if we already have a predefined palette we could easily add it.

    Thanks for the great work!

    • There is already a field for you to copy and paste rgba/hex values. It appears right above the colorpicker.

  292. WOW

  293. Really excited to see how this is going to change my business 🙂 thank you

  294. Top Job! All installed and working. Loving the split testing option.

  295. Incredible! I LOOOOVE Divi. Thank you for your hard work.

  296. I second Laurent, having a hex code field would be great!
    I look forward to using the new Divi in upcoming projects.
    Keep up the good work!

  297. I’m just wondering what these features mean for child theme creators. Do they now shift their focus to creating layout packs or settings packs? Is ET trying to build a proprietary CMS on top of WordPress?

    I’m a big fan of DIVI, but some things should be left for plugins and child themes to handle.

  298. Cant wait to try this update! It certainly looks promising.

  299. Will split testing work with caching plugin?

    • Yes it will. When caching plugins are enabled, split testing subjects are loaded via ajax.

  300. Fantastic. Divi is the diva of Wordpres themes. Split testing looks amazing.

  301. Awesome work guys!

  302. You guys are the best! Super excited about all the new features.

  303. A great update for a great theme! Well done 😀

  304. Awesome! I love it!

  305. A.M.A.Z.I.N.G

  306. Great news! Excellent work, guys 😉

  307. So glad you guys keep making Divi even easier and more powerful. I guess I need to do more learning on all the features it offers.

  308. LOVE IT

  309. Often choosing the wrong ques in supermarkets, backing wrong horses etc. it’s great to know that I got it right this time! DIVI is exactly what I needed to focus the marketing aspects of web-design and now Divi Leads makes that even better. Thank you.

    A suggestion: Could we get enable/pause functionality on sections? Then a section can be ‘switched on and off’ as needed.

    • Hi Bill, thank you for the kind words. As for your question, if I’m understanding you correctly I believe that is already possible. If you right-click a section you can choose to “disable” it on certain devices or across the board. This doesn’t delete it, so if you want to in the future you can simply “enable” it to bring it back. Is that what you mean by “enable/pause”?

  310. Your wish is my command ;-).
    You’re doing a great job! Thanks a lot!

  311. Awesome release.

    Definitely need more design options for the navigation especially the vertical nav. tired of doing css hacks

    • Hi Ryan,

      What sort of changes do you typically make with CSS to the vertical nav?

  312. Love the new features of 2.7, can’t wait to try them out in earnest.

  313. WoW Great work!

  314. Can i ask if with the import/export option i can export my local site and have a perfect copy published on line?

  315. Awsome guys! Blew my mind! Congrats! =*

  316. One of the most obvious and basic features missing for me is a slider module that allows you to simply upload a picture in to, like an everyday, normal slideshow, BUT make the whole image a clickable link. I’m always having to look for work arounds and hacks to adjust the existing slider module, when this should really be available already.

    Other than that, I think the theme is great.

    Another BIG thing on the wishlist is the ability to use the DIVI page builder tools on Woocommerce product pages, so that I can build perfect layouts and position elements on the page like prices, ratings, info etc with modules.

    Thanks again!

  317. Awsome guys! Blew my mind! Congrats! =*

  318. This is really tempting, maybe I should become a member after all!

  319. Nice update to an already good theme, do need more options with the Header area in my opinion.

    • Hi Kent,

      What kind of header options are you looking for?

      • Please please give “mobile” options for the header – size of logo. I have a large central logo on desktop, then when someone looks on a mobile it is super small and I cannot change it – any CSS I try does not work correctly.


        • Do you have any CSS code for the logo size – just on mobile at the moment? I have seen many people on the forums trying different things. Many thanks.

  320. Hi! I love the new A/B testing component in Divi! I can’t wait to use it when optimizing my sites.

  321. Hi: In the flourishing Latin American market of internet bussiness, we were waiting for tools as Divi by Elegantthemes,com to keep growing. Congratulations!


    Hola: En el floreciente mercado latinoamericano de los negocios por internet, estábamos esperando herramientas como DIVI de Elegantthemes.com para seguir creciendo. ¡Felicitaciones!

  322. Wonderful ! Great work

  323. Great work from Elegant Themes again!

  324. Hello, Great work Nick! All Elegant Theme work hard to launch this new version.

    Question: I’m a user and I’ve not renew my annual access last january. I would like to renew now, can I access to your 20% off offer?

    Many Thanks

    • Hi Ben,

      I am afraid that the discount is only available for new members. This is simply a limitation of our membership system, but if you send us an email we might be able to work something out. You can also just sign up for a new account if you don’t mind changing your username.

      • Many thanks Nick, I paid for a new year, it’s not expensive for this beautifful integrated solution 😉
        Long life to your team and your baby, Divi 😉
        Best regards

  325. nice theme : )

    awesome design

  326. Nice Updates!!

    But I have ONE Issue:

    If I wan’t to import the layouts it says “1% Import estimated time remaining: 1min”

    and then after 10 seconds it switches to

    “This file should not be imported in this context.”

    Anyone has the same issue? (I have updated Divi etc..)

    • Hi,
      I have exactly the same issue. Gets to 1% … remaining 1 min
      Tested on numerous installations.
      The library pack is not importable.
      Been careful to download … extract the zip file … import the file: divi_library_pack.json
      Not possible I guess.
      Can anyone confirm that they have successfully imported it – I’d be grateful to know.
      Regards Mark

      • Ok,
        It seems that the Divi Library import doesn’t give you an option of whether you want to import all the images into your media area. It just does it.
        That doesn’t sit well with the plugin “Compress JPEG & PNG images”. You have to deactivate it first before.
        The import then worked.
        Regards Mark

        • Uhm. I don’t have this Plugin and can’t find it under plugins!? Not sure how to fix this? Help?

          • Hi Paul, I observed same scenario but when I stopped the import, and re-imported, I noticed the pre-made layout are already in the library including the images. Seems a fix is needed to make the import indicate when 100% complete in a lucid way.

            • I even made a new installation now. Still same BUG. Nick Roach – can you help me?

              Ps.: @bb – i don’t have them in the library

  327. Great work Elegant-team!
    I already moved a complete Divi website with the new export options (saved me tons of work!!!). +1

    Also tried the split testing options and love how it works. +1

    It seems that there is only one problem with it: after I saved the page, I can’t ad an other split testing section without removing the first testing item.
    Am I missing something here because it looks like right clicking a section or module should do the trick (but it doesn’t show up like it does in the example images). I hope you guys could help me out.

    • Only once test can be run any any given time, so you will need to test one item at a time unless both items are contained in a single section.

  328. Divi is already the ultimate WordPress theme and builder, and it’s only getting better. Looking forward to continuing to create with Divi, and the unlimited possibilities it affords me. Thanks Elegant Themes for all your do.

  329. The new split test function seem very interesting!

  330. Just upgraded to Lifetime Membership!!! Thanks Nick!!

  331. Hello,

    great news. Although it would be great to have an ETA on a very important enhancements like:

    1) make inline css as external file (e.g. dynamic.css – and don’t tell me like your support did that it can’t be done, it can, easily)

    2) possibility to not USE Woocommerce CSS when Woocommerce is inactive (modularity)

    3) better grid options

    4) load icon CSS’s only if I use icons anywhere (and only that pack until other is activared) #modularity #performance



  332. Great tool!!! Welcom A/B test!!!

  333. this is amazing

  334. Perfect! I love DIVI! A/b test is a great change.

  335. How is it you folks figure out all the things I have been hoping for. Particularly happy with the color picker improvements and the page-based CSS.

  336. Wow, A/B tracking built-in? Sweet. I can stop using Unbounce!

  337. This is absolutely the best! Awesome update!

  338. Starting a new church website. Would be excellent to has this fabulous tool at my fingertips

  339. Great! Amazing, I’ll upgrade right away.

  340. Hello again team,

    Just uploaded new layouts to our site, but don’t understand how the final page should like. Now is is some kind of a mess from images, shapes and text. Some parts of a layout looks good, some is missing information.

    Do you have a live demo?



  341. While I really like the theme there is a couple of really obvious features not included.
    One is a simple way to edit the footer info that several people have already mentioned.
    The other is the limited options in setting columns in the Divi builder. You are stuck to 4 columns max & you have to code to customise – very frustrating as there are good free plugins that offer more options for columns, ie. Page Builder by Site Origin.

    Looking forward to seeing these features finally fixed…

    • One of our goals with Divi is to make it easy to use, but also difficult to break. With the addition of more than 4 columns, you run into the issue of certain modules not fitting inside such a small space. We want to avoid letting users create layouts that are essentially broken. We may end up introducing more columns in the future, but right now we are hesitant.

  342. This is awesome!! Divi Leads makes me very happy.

  343. The new Divi Leads feature is awesome!

  344. I would LOVE to use that. That’s great news!

  345. This update looks freaking awesome! Split testing was one of the few things I saw missing. I can’t complain about that any longer. The only other thing I thought that Divi may have been missing the mark on was the power and flexibility of the import/export system. Then lo and behold you revamp it as well. We all know that Divi gives you the flexibility to create nearly unlimited designs and layouts. Now we can easily share them as well.

    Divi is looking less and less like a “theme” and more and more like an easy to use framework all of the time. It’s pretty amazing.

    I suppose the only criticism I can really levy against Divi now is that it is so shortcode heavy that it is pretty difficult to migrate away from Divi to another theme if you wanted to. Granted, I don’t think I’d ever want to, but I am always worried that a client is going to come to me demanding that I use a specific theme for their site that was already built using Divi.

    Aside from that Divi continues to be a winner!

    • Even though we use shortcodes, you can always leave Divi if you install the Divi Builder plugin. This will ensure that your shortcodes will keep working no matter what theme you use.

  346. Divi is GREAT!!

  347. Thanks, Divi number one

  348. Thanks, I was looking forward, greetings

  349. Divi it’s my best template!

  350. Oh wow! I LOVE the idea of split-testing. well done! This is something I will use again and again.

  351. Amazing job guys! And thanks for the free layout too!! 🙂

  352. Thanks so much, ET!! Divi has allowed me to branch out as designer into developer and now marketer! You’re products make me a well-rounded creative and invaluable to my clients! Cheers!

  353. Beautiful, I might actually subscribe.

  354. Awesome! Can’t wait to try it out! Love Divi!

  355. I have no doubt that Elegant Themes is the best, of the best WP developers around the whole… yes, the WHOLE world.
    These DIVI update has amazing features, features that, sincerely I do not expect.
    The team that Nick have created is fantastic.

  356. You guys, are awesome!!!

  357. ¡Impresionante! Sabía que Divi era un gran tema para WordPress, y ahora ya roza lo extraordinario.
    A pelear con Divi 7…
    Saludos a todos.

  358. Ahhhh, I’m so excited for this!! There are a whole bunch of things I’ve been wanting to test, especially as I get ready to launch a Google Analytics course for bloggers (sales pages are a bear!), and this is going to help so much. Thank you!

  359. I’m on a slightly older version from a couple months ago and the Equalize Column Heights feature isn’t working in that version, has this been fixed in this version? (I am unable to just upgrade due to a subscription that just expired.)

    Exited to try the split testing feature, great to see that spit testing is being made to be an easier process.

  360. With all of the Divi updates you do, I’m curious as to why you can’t add more autoresponders other than Aweber and Mail Chimp to integrate with the theme.

    • We focused on email integration efforts in Bloom, and right now we don’t have plans to significantly expand the integrations in Divi. Using the Bloom shortcode you can input optin forms anywhere inside the Divi Builder 🙂

  361. Lot’s of great new features to checkout!

  362. I can’t wait for the new import export feature, it will save 80% of everyone’s time, and I love the customizable color palette

    • Sometimes the simplest of features are the most important!

  363. I want it!

  364. Cool stuff guys! Keep up the good work. I remember I started out with Divi two years ago, and at first it seemed as a out of the box normal theme, easily compared to the ones found on Themeforest.
    But I have to say, I am pleasant surprised by the progress the company and Divi has made over the years. On the plus side looking forward to test A/B/C/D and track my conversions with it.
    What can I say. Keep up the good work.

    • Thanks Chris! We have come a long way, but this is just the beginning 😉

  365. I have never had a problem with Divi until this update. I am not experienced at all and really liked the simpleness of Divi. Now though I can’t load my pages as it says that there is a compatibility issue with a third party plug-in. I deactivated each plug in I have one by one and none of them are apparently the issue unless it is more than one. I am stuck and have no idea what to do now but can’t load my pages for editing or to even make a new one ….help please?!

    • I am facing the exact same problem.. How can I fix this ?

  366. Cant wait to use these new exciting features.

  367. Yeeeyy! awesomeeeee

  368. Yeeeyy! awesomeeeee

  369. Well done guys – it looks great. I can’t wait to upgrade my sites.

  370. Wow! Just last night I was wishing I could do split testing and today you grant my wish!

  371. Wow. Thank You!

  372. You are the man!

  373. Nice update!

  374. The testing features are genius! Can’t wait to try it out

  375. Wow–perfect timing for split testing as we’re undergoing a rebrand!

  376. Just go ahead and continue!

  377. Excellent! Looking forward to these.

  378. Very cool. Can’t wait to get my sites updated. The new library functions come just in time.

  379. Divi is so awesome!!

  380. Can’t wait to try out all the new features, thanks ET!

  381. Divi is awesome but still the only thing that still force me to do custom plugins for websites with high traffic is bad performance.

    All the customization codes make inline css,
    there are about 10 css files and 22 javascript files and which are 1 MB which is huge for landing page !?

    and you can’t even concat and minify them using w3 total cache cause minification breaks the theme.

    Everything else is awesome but performance is still what forces my team to do custom themes where performance matters and only use divi for low budget websites.

  382. That Leads Split Testing System is such a great idea.
    Library packs is great too.

    Well done folks!

  383. Seems promising.

  384. I love the progress.

    My biggest need right now is the ability to do custom preview formats on blog roll pages.

  385. Sounds great, as usual!

  386. This looks great. Thanks!

  387. Bravo!

  388. I have tried to upgrade with the 20% discount but it isn’t applying to my account … Can you help?

  389. I’m in love with the 2.7 Divi version.

    I appreciate the new advantages it provides.

    Thanks for creating it.

  390. The split test feature is a welcome addition. Well done guys.

  391. Divi, a best solution for build any type of website. Just love it 🙂

  392. Looks very versatile and professional – and a bit intimidating for me as a first time user… 😉 I think I will brave it and use Divi for my first own website for my first ever online course. Exciting!!! 🙂

    Any Divi-fan webdesigner out there who would maybe jump in and help if I get stuck??

  393. There are many great additions to the new Divi library … but there is one problem I am finding that is a dealbreaker.
    I’ve tried at length to get a workflow going with the new Divi Library.
    But the encoding of images means that importing library items creates a graveyard of images on every site you import library items to.
    Seriously, how many sites do you want the same image on? None.
    I hotlink images from one demo website. This ability has now gone to do this. I want to be able to import library items without all the images flooding into my media area.
    This is a dealbreaker I’m afraid.
    I can’t think of a way to use this without expanding the media area of every website that I have.
    Does anyone else share this concern?
    Many thanks
    Regards Mark

    • Absolutely agree with all of that…I have many divi and extra sites and now I am upset that this could ruin my whole work flow!!!

  394. Divi is the best 😀

  395. Thank elegantthemes

  396. I want it!

  397. Best theme ever!

  398. using the same philosophy that this new features .. could be added in a future modules for different languages? including a language selector in the header? thanks.

  399. I love the Divi theme and the update looks awesome.

  400. woha what a theme i am saving my pocket money to purchase Devi. I love it.

  401. Awesome stuff as always!

  402. All I want now is the speed issue / inline css etc sorted and divi will be invincible!

    Please make the next update about size, speed and performance!!! Please!

  403. You guys rock!

  404. Super excited about the portability features!

  405. Just started using ‘Extra’ this year and I love it! Can’t wait to try ‘Divi’.

  412. I so badly want the Divi Theme! It’s exactly the Theme I need to redo my websites.

  413. WOW

  414. I am truly impressed – so glad I took the plunge and joined in at the Developer level! Love Divi’s new Split Testing as well as the Portability!!

  415. Thank you for making DIVI for real. You made my day!

  416. I’m really impressed, and look forward to learning how to use all the features of Divi. As a new WordPress user I really appreciate the quality of the information in your posts.

  418. I love Divi! This just gives me yet another reason to love it more.

  419. Congrats, mate!

  420. Divi it’s a great theme. All features and functions are fully customizable.

  421. Looking Good!

  422. Do you even divi bro?

  423. Divi 2.7 is an amazing Update. Keep up the great work as always.

  424. Awesome concept and awesome features! Divi certainly makes life easier for us bloggers! =)

  425. The Split Testing is a real game changer.

  426. With the New Divi release you just need dream, imagine & design without any code.

  427. awesome!!

  428. More goodness to try on a current project. Thank you.

  429. Divi is my go-to theme for development: creative, easy, and captivating.

  430. Divi just keeps getting better and better! Wonder what could possibly be next….

  431. Can’t wait to try it! 🙂

  432. You guys just keep getting better and better!!!

  433. Oh thanks a lot! giveaways a very interesting way to try new resources

  434. I’m really looking forward to this new version. The last updates were great and I’m sure I’ll find some more goodies this time too. Thanks for all the hard work. Divi is amazing.

  435. I just found Divi yesterday, so this is perfect timing. I’m blown away by how easily customizable everything is and how I don’t have to be a designer to make a beautiful site that matches the vision I have in my head. Thank you so much for the opportunity to win! 🙂

  436. What I see I LOVE! Hope I win; too poor to afford it. 🙁

  437. I love the new updates! I am so glad I chose elegant themes!

  438. There are no words that would capture how much I NEED this upgrade. Also, I see the odds are stacked against me but I’ll try to keep a positive attitude. I’ve been told that I should have an elegant theme, that it would e easier for me to set up my new blog. Please wish me luck.

  439. Divi 2.7 features look really nice.

  440. I tried the split testing feature out today on my site. I think this could be really helpful. Thanks for all your hard work on this.

  441. I’ve been using Divi for a few version now and I’m loving it! I’m very stoked about the split testing and anxious to try it out!

  442. Love this theme, can’t wait to update ☺

  443. New Released theme by Divi is really awesome and cool.

    I wish I could try this new awesome theme.

  444. Looks great, loving all the new additions to an already super flexible theme!

  445. I love Divi!

  446. good luck for everyone!

  447. I’d like to win!

  448. Loving the new features in 2.7! Can’t wait to try the A/B testing feature & Divi Leads. Combined with the sheer elegance of Divi it all wraps into a nice little package that can only be described as Elegantly Effective.
    Oh, and the Dynamic Help System seems pretty nifty, too.

  449. Go Divi

  450. I’m looking forward to upgrading to Divi 2.7. Thanks to Elegant Themes for the GREAT support. I highly recommend your company – your support, themes and plugins are #1!

  451. I LOVE the new features!

  452. Very, very nice! i love Dive Theme!

  453. Best theme so far, can’t wait to try it out!

  454. I’d love to win!

  455. Since Divi, I have not done any website using a different theme… it’s really awesome how we can do things with Divi and I have recommended to many of my friends who create web sites (by the way, I have no affiliate link)

    There is just one thing I would like to suggest, but it’s about Bloom plugin… After a successful subscribe, it would be really nice if Bloom could redirect to the thank-you page that we define in our Autoresponder, as, let’s say, Aweber o Mailchimp (I use both)…

    As Bloom only displays a successful subscribe message using the autoresponder integration, I rather use the html code of my autoresponder in order for this feature to work.

    Would this be possible some time?

  456. You can’t think more with this features. It’s perfect and adorable.

  457. I’m really excited to try out Divi. Everything I’ve read about it seems like it’ll make publishing my online shop so much easier 🙂

  458. I can’t wait to beautify my brand new blog with this new theme! ?

  459. Ok… I must be dense or something… I don’t get the testing/leads part. Either a longer video showing it more or I may have to just play with it to understand.

  460. You guys keep innovating on what is already such an incredible base. Keep up the excellent work!

  461. This is great! Thank you.

  462. Divi makes websites easy, even for me.

  463. Excited to check out the new upgrades! Sound amazing!

  464. Absolutely loving Divi and the great new features in 2.7!

    One thing…For some reason I started getting Divi Builder Timeout error message on one of my sites after updating. Anyone else seeing issues with WooCommerce and Divi 2.7?

    • I’m getting this on the staging area on Siteground. Seems to be ok on the live site.

      • Did you ever get this working, either of you? I’m having the same problem. (I’m also using Siteground staging.)

      • I found the solution buried in their support forums. They say to add the following to your .htaccess file:

        SubstituteMaxLineLength 10M

        • Ugh. Most of it got stripped out. Here it is again without open and close carrots that are needed at the beginning and end of the first and last line:

          IfModule mod_substitute.c
          SubstituteMaxLineLength 10M

    • I am getting the same error and I also use WooCommerce. Found any solution for this ?

  465. Thanks for your passion for continuous improvement!

  466. Divi ROCKS!!!!

  467. Great campaign!

  468. I save a ton of time with Divi .. Awesome work ppl. thanks !!!

  469. This great a theme and I have plans to use theme on my next project.

    Great contest and congrats on the the latest theme release.

  470. Divi is awesome!!!

  471. Great Job! It is a best easy-to-use theme that I have used up to now.

  472. One of the bloggers I admire is using Divi and I’ve been salivating over it for a while. It looks so smooth and has such great options.

  473. Groovy! I love Divi. I run all my sites using the theme.

  474. I love the new features!

  475. I love free stuff

  476. Elegant Themes just keeps outdoing themselves over the last good thing they bring us. Keep it up, guys!

  477. Divi is my favorite WP theme. Always looking forward to the newest releases!

  478. Totally love DIVI and cant wait to use the latest version … there can’t be a better theme with such a huge variety of possibilities ! You rock Elegant Themes 🙂

  479. Keep on rocking guys… and more user friendly.

  480. I’ve put together a dev site with the Divi 2.4 layouts, Divi Dark layouts, the “Interior” demo, premade business layouts, premade portfolio layouts, and layouts from diviThemeExamples.

    1. Will the large menu I created to access all the pages (approximately 80 pages?) be able to be Exported/Imported in the JSON file?

    Thank you.

  481. You’ve don it again! ET and Dii just keeps getting better. I’ve dumped all the other themes I was using and replaced them with ET themes and plugins, especially Divi!

  482. I really love this theme <3

  483. This does look like a very nice theme. 😀 I will play with it on my WP Dev. server. Will be interesting to see what it can do. I’ll let you know how I go. 🙂

  484. This might be the time I could try out the full version of Divi~ huehue

  485. Divi looks freaking amazing.

    Guys you rock. Thank you.

  499. These features sound great! I love the idea of being able to test new ideas and track their success. I like that you have built in feature to help diagnose problems too. As a novice website owner, those problems can take forever to solve!

  500. So many great new features! Can’t wait to upgrade! The split testing will be fantastic and means I can get rid of additional plug ins.

  501. This is my 3rd years as an ET member and I can’t see why I won’t continue to be a member for years to come.
    I’ve not made a site using any other theme aside from Divi for 18 months now & I can’t see that changing either.
    Keep up the great work!

  502. Amazing theme. It keeps getting better! And Elegant Themes support really rocks! Keep up the super work!
