Six months ago our team decided to go all in on a single idea, to lay our cards on the table and commit to something bigger and better than we had ever built before. We committed to building Divi 3.0. This project wasn’t about incremental improvements, it was about reinventing Divi, reinventing ourselves, learning a completely new language and creating a modern React application that would change the game for our customers and ensure Divi’s relevancy for years to come. We set out to build what could become, and continue to be, the best visual page builder in the world.

Over the past 100 days we have been holding those cards close to our chest as we guided you through the Divi 100 Marathon, slowly counting down the days to this moment. You may have started to wonder how good it could really be. You may have been skeptical about whether or not you would enjoy a true front-end editing experience. You may have started to wonder if it would be worth the wait.

Well the wait is over, Divi 3.0 is here and let me tell you…it’s awesome! The speed is incredible, the interface is beautiful and the experience is pure magic. The new visual builder takes everything you love about Divi and makes it infinitely better through a new visual interface that allows you to build pages on the front end of your website. Add content, customize the design, type directly on the page and watch everything happen instantly right before your eyes. It makes me smile every time I use it, and I can’t wait for you to try it too.

Build Everything Visually

Divi 3.0 introduces a completely new visual interface that will forever change the way you build websites. This front end editor allows you to make changes to your website…on your actual website! Click into a paragraph and start typing. Highlight some text and adjust the fonts and styles. Drag an element and watch it move. Add new items from any of Divi’s 40+ content modules, adjust module settings, save and load items from the library and see everything happen instantly. No page refreshes, little to no ajax loading bars and absolutely no need to “preview” your changes because everything is happening in real time on your page.


Divi’s new visual builder allows you to create and edit your pages on the front-end of your website. When you load the builder, you see your page exactly as you would if you were browsing your website normally. With the builder activated, however, everything on the page becomes editable! You can click into any element and adjust its content, size, spacing, color, positioning and more. You can add, duplicate and delete content, drag content from one area to another and load items from your library instantly. All of the Divi modules and settings that you are familiar with are still there, enhanced and simplified through the new visual interface.

Things that are tedious and frustrating in block-based backend builders, such as locating content in a grid of sections and rows, previewing changes and understanding how certain settings work are now things of the past. Building with the visual interface is infinitely more intuitive, and after you use it for the first time you are seriously going to wonder how you ever lived without it! Even for current Divi users, this update is a complete game changer.

Observe Changes Instantly

When you make a change in the new visual builder, your page is updated instantly. Text on the page feels tangible as you slide the font size controls and watch your words expand and contract with each gesture. The page feels alive as you explore the color picker and watch each glowing transformation. It’s fun and easy and just a bit magical. Unlike other front-end editors you may have used, Divi’s new visual builder is incredibly fast which makes the design process all the more fun.


Add New Content On The Fly

Adding content to your page couldn’t be easier. If you want to add something new, simply hover over the desired area and click the “+” button and you will be greeted by a list of Divi’s 40+ content elements. No need to awkwardly drag items from a central dock because Divi’s content tooltip is always there when you need it. Plus it’s searchable, which makes it easy to find your desired content element or saved library item. Did I mention it’s super fast? When you add new content elements, they are just there.


Divi has a content module for every occasion and each can be completely customized to obtain your desired result. Simply add, mix and match content and watch your new page come to life. No coding; no plethora of disjointed plugins; just click and build. No matter what kind of website you are creating, Divi has the tools you need to make your vision a reality.

Drag, Drop, Duplicate & Delete

Of course no website builder would be complete without drag and drop, and Divi 3.0 is no exception. Dragging and dropping elements in Divi’s visual builder is particularly intuitive because you are working with your actual content instead of with ambiguous blocks and grids. When editing long pages, Divi’s new “zoom out” feature gives you an overhead view of your design and allows you to drag large pieces of content long distances without having to scroll. You can also forgo dragging and dropping completely and opt for Divi’s copy and paste functionality instead.


Draggable Widths & Heights

One of the things we strived for in Divi 3.0 was to allow for meaningful interactions that take full advantage of the builder’s visual nature. Draggable widths and heights are perfect examples of this. It’s something that didn’t make sense in the backend builder, but something that’s completely natural and totally awesome in the visual builder. When you place your cursor over any of the four sides of a row or section, you can drag to increase or decrease the padding thereby increasing or decreasing the element’s width and height. You can see the changes take place instantly as your move your mouse!


Working with white space can be challenging, and it can be downright frustrating in a backend builder. It’s one of those things that you need to see and feel to understand, and working with only numbers and blocks simply isn’t the best way to make such important design decisions. The first time you launch the visual builder and drag open the height of a section, you are going to feel your mouth open to a smile along with it! It’s just so. damn. cool.

Easy Responsive Editing

The new visual builder comes with responsive design toggles that you can use to view your page on Smartphone, Tablet and Desktop breakpoints. You can toggle these different views while you edit your page and the visual builder stays fully functional in all three modes. What’s more, Divi allows you to specify different settings values for each different breakpoint, and the Divi Builder will automatically switch between each breakpoint while you edit them! It’s never been this easy to build a beautifully responsive website.


Instant Undo, Redo & Revision Restore

The new visual builder has a very comprehensive undo and redo system, complete with a fully restorable history log. It’s one of my favorite features of Divi 3.0, not only because it’s incredibly useful, but because it’s perhaps the most shining example of the new builder’s speed and power. You are never in danger of making a mistake because nothing is ever lost. You can undo your most recent actions, or open up the history log and travel back and forth through time and watch your page transform instantly. It’s even a great way to compare design changes and decide which variation you like best. Just flip through your history like a living sketchbook and expand on your favorite ideas!


The “Invisible Interface” That Won’t Get In Your Way

The new Divi Builder gives you all of the power with none of the clutter. We wanted to build a modern design experience that embodies our team’s most central of values: elegance. It’s in our name, it’s in our products, but never have we built something quite this pure and wonderful.


When you first open the builder, you might not even know it’s there. Your screen is not hijacked by floating sidebars or fixed headers. Your content is not affixed to countless buttons or obstructed by annoying grids and overlays. What you see is your website, but that’s not the full story. When you click into a paragraph, you can start typing. When you highlight a block of text, you can apply custom fonts and styles. When you drag something, it moves. Upon hovering over any of Divi’s basic elements, their settings can be opened and adjusted. Everything you need to add content, edit content and create an awesome website is right there at your fingertips, but it never gets in your way. This is the most enjoyable website building experience I have ever used, and I know that you are going to fall in love with its beauty, its subtlety and its power.

Customize Your Interface

This is the first WordPress page builder to have a customizable interface that doesn’t pigeonhole you into certain polarizing UI conventions. You can choose to have your module controls appear inside of a popup, or you can opt to have them appear in a sidebar. You can adjust the popup’s size and position, or use the buttons for expand and contract. If you drag the popup over to either side of the page, it will automatically snap into the sidebar position and adjust your content accordingly! You can change the width of the sidebar to accommodate the size of your screen or drag it over to the alternate side of the page to satisfy your personal preference.


A Beautiful New Inline Editing Experience

One of the builder’s most exciting new features is the ability to add, edit and format text right on the page without ever needing to open up a module’s settings panel. It saves a ton of time and it’s infinitely more enjoyable.


When editing text content in Divi’s new visual builder, there is no need to open a settings panel to add or edit text. If you want to add some content to your page, just click and start typing! You can compose entire posts using a single column and a text module and the experience is fast and wonderful. Composing on your page is so much better than working inside a cluttered backend interface. There are no distractions and there is no mystery as to how your content will render once it has been saved.

We have created our own custom inline editing interface for Divi 3.0, and it’s really a joy to use. It’s simple and effective, stripped of superfluous tools and consolidated into a single tooltip that is easy to navigate.

Custom Fonts And Styles

Styling text with the inline editor is easy. You can apply standard styles to any selection, such as bold, italic and underline. You can add H1-H5 headers, create links, build lists and adjust text alignment just like you can in the normal WordPress text editor. In addition, you can apply custom fonts, colors and text sizes. Through this combination of stylization options you can easily take your typography to the next level.


A Modern Builder For A New Era

The new visual builder interface in Divi 3.0 has been re-built from the ground up using React, a modern javascript library for user interfaces. While it is still based on the modular Divi Builder framework that we have been working on for the past 3 years, the new interface is completely independent. This has allowed us to approach the builder in an entirely new and modern way, and this should give the Divi community confidence in the theme’s longevity and our team’s dedication to Divi’s continued evolution.


Last year Matt Mullenweg, the co-founder of WordPress and the CEO of WordPress.com, talked about the future of WordPress and the importance of JavaScript. Later that year the team at WordPress.com released Calypso, a modern WordPress interface built using React and Flux. This allowed them to jump past years of legacy and create a new and modern WordPress interface. We decided to follow their lead and do the same thing with Divi. The visual builder in Divi 3.0 is a completely new application built from the ground up using React and Flux, and this new technology has allowed us to do some really amazing things. We are invested in the future of the web, we are dedicated to the future of Divi, and Divi 3.0 is our way of proving to ourselves and our community that the builder will continue to evolve and change for the better. Today we get to show you the future of Divi. It’s a huge leap forward and we are just getting started.

Unbelievably Fast

The new Divi Builder is fast. Really fast. In fact it’s probably one of the fastest website builders you have ever used. When you add or change content, the page updates instantly. There is little to no traditional “loading” because the building takes place in your browser, not on your server. Say goodbye to page refreshes and ajax loading bars and enjoy instant feedback to every adjustment you make. If you have been deterred from front-end editing in the past by slow and clunky visual builders, then Divi 3.0 is here to change your perspective once and for all. This is the future of WYSIWYG.

No Strings Attached

Current Divi users need not be concerned about clicking the upgrade button. Even though we have completely re-designed the builder, the end result on your page will remain unchanged. All modules and settings will work exactly as they have in the past and you can even bounce back and forth between the backend and front end builders at your leisure. Divi 3.0 offers full backwards compatibility.

Available For Extra Too! Divi Builder Plugin Coming Soon

Divi isn’t the only one of our products that takes advantage of the Divi Builder framework. If you are currently using our Extra theme, or if you are using our Divi Builder plugin to enable the Divi Builder on third party themes, then you will be excited to know that the new visual builder is coming your way very soon. In fact, it’s available for Extra today!

Extra & Divi Builder Users Rejoice!

Even though today we celebrate the release of Divi 3.0, users of our Divi theme aren’t the only ones who should be excited. The Divi Builder framework powers not only Divi, but also our Extra theme and the Divi Builder Plugin. Both of these products will be updated to include the latest version of the Divi Builder framework and users of these products will be able to take full advantage of the new visual builder. You won’t have to wait long either. Extra 2.0 is already ready and has been released today along with the new visual builder. Version 2.0 of the Divi Builder plugin, including the visual builder, will be available very soon. We are talking about days away, not months 🙂 We are adding an artificial delay to the release of the new Divi Builder plugin to allow for additional testing with various third party themes. Unlike the Divi and Extra themes, where the Divi Builder lives in a controlled environment, the Divi Builder Plugin needs a little extra attention. Don’t worry, when it’s ready it’s going to work like a charm!

It’s also worth mentioning that the visual builder is backwards compatible and completely interchangeable with the current backend builder. Pages built using new and previous versions of Divi, Extra and the Divi Builder Plugin will all work perfectly when switching between each product, so there is no need to worry about upgrading to Divi 3.0 today!

    • I think, Divi 3 is the real big step to move the website contruction from the techician job to the business consulting job with no technical glue!!!

      Really, most of our customers are boring not about the banner sliding speed, but about what they need to write in it and how to find well suitable image for it. But to give them the webmaster plus the consulter is very expensive.

      Now, we’ll try to use only the web business consulter. I hope this will be successful expirience.

      Thank you for the great job!

After several huge issues including having to rebuild two sites from scratch due to DMS being unstable I’m now switching everything to DIVI and DIVI 3 looks like it rocks!

    • I think this is finally product that deserve to be visual builder for wordpress… also i would give idea to put possibility to use wordpress widgets in divi and also in text editor there should be scrollable content… the way it works now for example if i edit links i must highlight link then scroll up to top to make it then scroll back to next link… so keet the top part of the editor fixed… greets!

  9. Well done guys. I think it’s safe to say that you accomplished your goal to create the most incredible front end page builder the world has ever seen. 🙂

    I’m also amazed that you’re able to create such an incredible product, while producing spectacular content/freebies for 99 days straight, and then also manage to create such an epic release post too. Do you guys ever sleep??

    Okay, I’m gonna go take 3.0 for a spin now 🙂

  10. Congrats on the release! What a great Demo. Looking forward to trying this for real later!

  11. (Insert maniacal laughter *here)

  13. Woo Whoo what an awesome too days but is is finally here I can’t wait to start using this. You guys are fantastic.

  14. Wow, it was worth waiting! I’m testing the beast right now 🙂
    Thank you Nick and the whole ET team for such a great product!

    A true game-changer in the WordPress World and such an inspiration to build beautiful layouts! 🙂

  15. Great! Best Theme

  16. This really is a game changer! Thanks for all your great tutorials, ideas, inspiration and hard work!

  17. Cannot wait to give it a spin!

  18. So excited!!! I can’t wait to own Divi 3.0 and start building my site!

    The 20% link leads to a page that says Divi 2.7. Is that just a typo?


    • I’m not seeing that. Maybe it was fixed? Which link in particular?

        • It says, “20% Off All Upgrades For A Limited Time!
          To celebrate the launch of Divi 2.7, we are offering a huge discount.”

          • The page was just cached, sorry about that. It should be working now 🙂

            • I upgraded yesterday to Lifetime with the launch of Divi 3.0. Did I get the 20% when I upgraded yesterday? Can I get the credit back for the special discount?

  19. AMAZING … it’s incredible, massive breakthrough !
    Was updating my “Updates” section all day waiting for the release … it’s astonishing !!!

    LOVE IT !!!

  20. I am so in love with Divi 3.0 it’s totally worth the wait!

  21. The front end page builder is super duper fast, but when is the contact form module going to get much needed additions like check boxes, radial buttons, etc…???

    • Unfortunately there is only so much we can do in a given release and in this particular release, getting the front end builder out into the world was our top priority. Our next major release, the developer release, will have a lot of improvements in it. I can’t guarantee that each person will get their pet feature but I promise you we are doing our best to set appropriate priorities.

      • Sounds like a plan! I think the new front end builder will keep us more than distracted in the mean time. 😉

      • I hope flexible columns gets some attention as i know that has been a big request out there. “Developer Release” — is there any info on what that is??

  22. Amazing. I’m already testing.

  23. Already busy test-driving and simply in awe, Nick. Well done to you and your ET team! PS we’re having our first DIVI meetup at WordCamp Cape Town this week! We’ll send pictures 😉

  24. Looks great!!

  25. YES!!!

  26. Very excited to teach my son web design, this looks to be the perfect tool! Thanks for the opportunity to play with the test site! 🙂

  27. This is the best day ever!

  28. I’m really happy about this release! It’s great!

  29. You guys are Awesome ! Keep up the great work!

  30. A job well done.

  31. Thanks for your hard work.

  32. Is there any way to edit mobile separatly ?

    • Yep! When you have the visual builder activated there is an option to view tablet and mobile breakpoints in the bottom left corner. You can then set design settings for those page dimensions.

      • This! This is rocking. Love that side of the visual builder, such a fast way to work with mobile 🙂

  33. So far… ‘Far Out’ !
    Thx to Nick and the ET Team!

  34. I can’t wait to get started with this! It’s going to make my life so much easier!!! Thank you all for being amazing!

  35. Visual Builder looks cool. Are there any new functions beside builder? Any modules?

    There is one truly bad thing and its visual padding setting. I cannot see the value of padding until I open row or module editor so it’s meaningless at this moment.

      • Hi, I’m a new Divi user. When I click on the link I get taken to my account page, from there I click on support and get taken to the forum. But when I click on a topic it takes me back to my account page. So how can I access the forums? Thanks

    • +1

    • I agree with this. We really need to see the padding amount displayed while dragging. And the ability to adjust paddings of more than just sections, though I realize that could create difficulties UX-wise.


  36. Awesome!!!! This looks to be a game changer!

  37. Will this appear as an update in WordPress (I have my API etc set-up but no update so far)?

    • The same problem. I can’t uninstall my divi theme to reinstall it through ET download, and no update notification for the theme.

      • It may take a little while to show up in your updates.

    • Yes it will show up as an update in the WP Admin

      • My Theme shows an Update Is Available (3.0.1) but when I click it it says “Update Now” after a few seconds it returns the error “Update Failed: The theme is at the latest version.” I am on 2.7.8

        Any ideas on a solution? Thx

        • I had this issue updating to 3.0 yesterday. Tried again a little while later and the update worked. Hope this helps

          • Fixed by updating via the DASHBOARD Update rather than via the Theme Update link

            • Awesome tip!! I was having the same problem and that worked like a charm!! Thank you for sharing.

            • Perfect! Thanks for the tip to use the Dashboard Update. Worked like a charm

            • excellent advice – thanks, it worked for me too.
              Cheers, Ali

              • What is the dashboard update? I don’t see it.

                • Dashboard is an option on the WordPress menu.
                  Dashboard > Updates, select Divi, then click Update Themes.

                  Thanks for the tip, Liam.

            • Thanks, this worked!

    • I have the same question

  38. Awesome !!

  39. It’s a tad buggy on the boxed layout, with the content underneath the header detaching… other than that, impressed so far!

  40. This is really awesome! Plus the best part is it launched on my birthday 🙂

    • Happy Birthday to you!

    • Happy birthday to you and me also. Awesome!

  41. I’ve been waiting for this release ever since I saw the countdown begin. So glad it’s finally here!

  42. cannot wait to try it!

  43. Amazing. Can’t wait to test it out 🙂

  44. Looking great for the future.

  45. Congratz on the launch, Nick and team! 🙂
    I’m looking forward to giving Divi 3.0 a spin. Also great job on the Divi 100 marathon!

  46. Wow!!! I´m going to improve a lot my web sites!! And most important: UX for mobiles!!

  47. I am truly excited! Thank you!

  48. Divi 3.0 looks amazing, I am going to try it out on my site. Thank you to the entire Divi crew for all of your hard work.

  49. This is awesome.. Can’t wait to be able to give Divi 3 a whirl..

  50. This is awesome.. Can’t wait to be able to give Divi 3 a whirl..

  51. WOW!!!! 😀

  52. Nick & team, well done!

  53. It is so awesome! So glad the visual builder finally happened. Makes editing SOOOO much easier!!!

  54. Forget iPhone 7, today is ALL about Divi 3.0! Can’t wait to give it a spin!

  56. Loving it

  57. Just tested it in one of my sites… AMAZING!

    Great job!

  58. Wow! Can’t wait to actually use this. All the fears I had about a front-end builder have been completely wiped since testing the demo. You guys did a beautiful job on this.

  59. Thank you guys for the great work.

  60. Divi has been one of the best investments I’ve made to help me get my business online with a premium theme at a price that doesn’t break the bank. I’m sure Divi 3.0 won’t disappoint. The Divi100 marathon was awesome!

  61. wow finally its come Divi 3.0 the All New Visual Builder Has Arrived!

  62. Congratulations! Good luck with updates!)

  63. Nick thank you and all the ET team for all the hard work, we are already testing this thing out. We have been plans for a upcoming project and can’t wait to use the new 3.0 for it.

  64. Ok, one quick observation. 🙂 When you added separate styles for the mobile device, tablet and normal screen, editing is a little uncomfortable.

    The same problem is with the “hide” sections.

  65. So amazing, I cannot wait to try Divi 3.0 myself 😀

  66. I never win anything – still trying though…. 😉

    Been waiting most of the day for Divi 3.0 in my timezone 😀

  67. EPIC release! Great job guys!

  68. Many thanks!

  69. Looking really great. Everyone can feel how much love you put into Divi 3.0. Do you have a full list of changes, though? Especially aiming at what has changes under the hood … what features you had added coming from the community suggestions or your survey.

    • Yes there is a changelog available in the members area.

      • Great job with 3.0! It’s lightning fast.

        The changelog is only showing version 1.3.10 ( updated 08-18-2016 ) of the divi builder and the 3.0 changelog for the divi theme shows only 2 changes… are these likely to be updated?

  70. Excellent work.

    Divi is really becoming the tool I always wanted to build websites.

    Best investment ever.

  71. Couldn’t believe that 100 days have gone. Great job, thanks a lot

  72. Thanks a lot guys, it was worth waiting. Outstanding demo.

  73. No way to custom menu and footer?

  74. So far I’m pretty impressed with how awesome React JS can be. The new interface is very fast and to me that is extremely important. I found that it’s the little things that can dramatically save on project time such as hitting the view page a million times before the page is how you want it.

  75. Yes it looks amazing and works amazing!

    I have a site with woocommerce… divi not works on the shop page… The normal builder and visual builder..

    Is that correct?

    Regards Guido

  76. Realmente genial!

    From Argentina, thank you! 😉

  77. What a great product a revolution in webdesign

  78. I’m deeply grateful to Et.. thanks guys..

  79. Just Awesome!!! You ET did it real!!

  80. Awesome!

  81. Loved the 100days of Divi – great way of building anticipation. Looks like you have a winner!

  82. Wooootttt…..!!!!!!

  83. This looks amazing. OMG.

  84. Awesome!!! you ET people did it real!

  85. Simply beautiful!

  86. Great Job!

  87. We are waiting since 100 Days of this Update. It is just awesome. We thank you to Team Elegantthemes.

  88. How do existing developer license holders upgrade?


    • You can click on the upgrade link above and purchase the lifetime membership.

  89. This is just superb!!!

  90. Woohoo! Well done team! 🙂

  91. So we are using Divi but how will Divi 3 be activated on our account – do we need to pay to upgrade to it?

    • If you currently have a membership with us then you get Divi 3.0 free as part of that membership. No additional charge.

      • Awesomeness!!!

        • I am unable to upgrade to Divi 3 i am not getting any upgrade option in Dashboard i am currently using Developer package. i enter username and API but still no use, please advise me.

  92. Looking forward to taking this for a spin!

  93. This is unreal. It’s so awesome, you guys. Thank you for all your hard work! The community is very grateful! *off to play with Divi!*

  94. Amazing work guys!!! I love it!!

  95. Thank you so much for an amazing, I’ve been waiting for so long.

  96. Well done, folks. Looking forward to diving in and testing these new features. Grateful for y’all.

  97. Unbelievable job guys. I’ve used several drag and drops and none of them tops this. Can’t wait for my dashboard to update. So excited to test drive on staging!

  98. Amazing. We are using Divi since the first versions. With Divi 3 now also our clients can change their website in a really easy way. Congrats and thank you.

  99. Can’t wait to get started!! Thank you ET!

  100. You guys are awesome! I’m still at work and just got a chance to try out the demo but I’m in LOVE. I’ve been waiting patiently as I was working on a section of my blog that’s almost e-book publication worthy. Without having to switch back and forth from the box mode and the text will save me an innumerable amount of time. Elegant Themes rock on!

  101. Well I’ll be damned! Good work, folks!

  102. Nice! Looking forward to updating my websites and creating some beautiful designs with the new visual design interface.

    Always a great job. Thank you Elegant Themes!

  103. Divi 3.0, Increible 😀

    • Hola Miguel.
      Ya has podido actualizarlo ??

  104. I’m just about to fire it up……..Great job with the 100 days countdown and goodies.

  105. Truly revolutionary! Thank you so much for all the hard work!

  106. Truly revolutionary! Thank you so much for all the hard work!

  107. Looks awesome! Best DIY web building tool in the market 🙂

    I guess age of web designers are gradually ending. No need to hire someone to build sites when you have DIY tools like this 🙂

    • Dude, most people can’t get past hosting and a domain name by themselves. There are so many CMSs, tools, and themes out there, and someone has to find Divi first. Further, I’m good at Functionality, but horrible at Design. The easier they make this, the harder it will be for peeps to create with. Ideas are easy to throw around, perhaps you could help those people make their site. Most successful people I know don’t have time to pull off an “Internet Presence” by themselves, there’s more to it than a website.

      “Making a website is easy until suddenly, it gets really hard.”

      • Dude, I Agree with “Internet Presence” part other than that it’s a DIY tool to make website building easier. Look at the promo and tell me who’s the target audience. I think it intended for end user and not for some middle man.

        What I’m saying is you need to learn proper website building skills rather than using a DIY tool to make client web sites. Eventually client will find out how easy it is to do it by himself lol

      • I guess you may have a point because they said there will be a Divi Developer version. Looking forward for that version.

        Kudos for ET team for packaging up such great product. I have seen in polls Divi has already overtaken Genesis as the most popular theme framework for WordPress. Developer friendly additions will definitely cement that position.

  108. Congratulations on the launch!

  109. Curious to give it a whirl!

  110. Glad to be apart of this! I just got a new client so Divi 3.0 will definitely be used!

  111. This is awesome!

  112. I am so excited!

  113. It’s here! Loving divi more and more everyday. Can’t wait to test drive this.

  114. Awesome!

  115. I’ve been holding off on a few new sites because I wanted to use Divi 3.0. The countdown was genius because it really did build up suspense and excitement. About to go in to download and get started!

  116. I absolutely love it!!!!!!!!!!

  117. The editor is amazing, simply Elegant! Great work by your team. The build up with the 100 Days of Divi was also well done! Congrats!

  118. I would love to use your new builder on my website.

  119. This is so wonderful! Can’t wait to try it on my projects!

  120. Congrats on the bold decision to swing for the fences.

    Most, if not all, Drag n Drop attempts are based on a limited feature set or are built with inherent limitations.

    This is the rare exception.


  121. Thank you very much – I love to work with DIVI. Cant wait to try out the new builder 😉

  122. I can’t wait to hit that upgrade button and start using it. It is magical Thanks you Elegant Themes.

  123. Nick,

    you’re right. This changes everything.

    Keep up the great and excellent work.

    Kind regards and Greetings from Germany!


  124. Thanks guys!
    I realy liked the 100 days of tips, trics and content!

    p.s. I just upgraded to the Lifetime account! 🙂

  125. Awsome job ! Cannot wait to try it !

  126. Awesome!

  127. I can’t wait to mess around with this!

  128. Wow, just wow!

  129. Finally wait it over.

    You guys nailed it. Awesome..!! Beautiful..!!
    Congratulation team.

  130. Love Divi 3.0

  131. J’ai l’impression que je vais refaire tout mon site avec divi 3!

  132. Nick & team you accomplished an industry first….upstaging Apple on a launch day! Kudos x 3…

  133. This is an amazing job guys thank you for the efforts

  134. Awesome Work!! Testing!!!
    And the demo page, great idea!!
    You rocks guys!!

  135. After 100 days following and many more using Divi, I´m delighted with Divi for all my projects. In Spain, Divi is TOP.

  136. Amazing – I’ve been literally at the edge of my seat waiting for the release!!

  137. Can’t wait to try it!

  138. I am so excited to finally finish my website without the frustration of opening the modules for small changes!!! I am so technically challenged, this is perfect!

  139. How do I upgrade to 3.0 ?

    • If you have Divi installed right now you can simply wait for the upgrade notification in WP Admin and update like usual. If you don’t want to wait, you can download Divi 3.0 from our members area and manually update your theme.

      • Mine says there is an update and that the update is to 3.0 but when I click update it fails with the message that I already have the most up to date version. Help!!

        • I believe they said this was a bug that was being addressed. I am guessing you are using the themes page to update? Try doing to the Dashboard > Updates page and do the update there. I think they said that should work.

      • Hi,
        I have exactly the same issue with the update : it failed, and I had the same message as Michelle… Help !

        • Update via the Dashboard link (referenced above). That worked for me vs trying to do it from the Themes page

          • Thank you worked for me too! Thanks Liam

            • I have no options for update at all? None in themes and none in the dashboard update? My divi is still on 2.7.9
              Am i going to have to manually update?

  140. I’m super close to publishing my web site, literally just one more thing to fix/make work and it’s good. Divi has been awesome already, I’m super excited about the improved interface and ease of use. Thanks!

  141. Several of us are having trouble with updating. Seems like it might be related to a WP update that happened today. Any advice for what we do now? There is no update button or anything. I hope we dont have to do some FTP thing. I am not a tech savvy person. 🙁

    • For people that have this issue, go check the update folder even if you dont have a notification that updates are ready.

  142. Great Job ET !!!

  143. Fan-Fab-Tactic! Can’t wait to try it out…!
    Amazing advance in WP website development.

  144. Congratulations for this amazing update!

  145. hello & congrats!

    is there a way to keep properties panel open while editing different elements?

    its problematic to close it for an element in order to open it for the next one to edit


  146. Awesome!
    You really didi it …
    A new era for WordPress users 🙂

  147. Awesome!

    • Perfectionism!

  148. What I love the most is that ElegantThemes is pushing forward the evolution os building websites. Thank You so much! 🙂

  149. Wow. I am amazed at how good Divi 3.0 is. So excited to start using it!

  150. I looking forward to trying it. I am currently working on a website for my company. Would my current divi be upgraded to the new interface? That will be great.

    • Yes when you update your theme you will see a new option (in two places) to activate the visual builder: 1) the black wp admin bar you see when you’re on the front side of your wp website will have a button; and 2) the page/post editor on the backend will now have a visual editor button you can click too.

      • Once I make changes to a page via the visual editor, how do I publish the changes? There is a “Save” button at the bottom on the right hand side but when I click that and it finishes “processing”, I then go to see my page live, yet the changes are not showing.

        • This may be due to a caching plugin or another plugin conflict. Please create a ticket in our forum here: https://elegantthemes.com/forum

        • I just tried editing a different page (other than my home page) and it turns out, Wordfence was blocking the save action and gave an option to whitelist the action. Now that I whitelisted the action, I can save changes on this non-home page!

          WOOHOOO! That issue seems solved but I’ll have to test on the home page next.

      • Hi Nathan,

        I’m probably being an idiot but how do you exit the visual builder?

        I’ve used option 2 (clicked “use visual builder” when editing a post in wp-admin) and I can save but I can’t figure out how to return to wp-admin/divi builder when done?

        I’ve disabled the admin bar so option 1 is not an option for me.

        Doing right click “open link in new tab” does work if the only option is to close the tab when done.


        • You are not an idiot 🙂 I have the same issue

          • No answer on this? I’m having the same problem.

  151. Having fun so far and I love editing the responsive look now. So easy and a ton of time savings vs editing and preview, then editing and preview. Only thing that I found is the front end editor is not compatible with Gravity forms at the moment.

  152. this is the amazing wordpress theme

  153. Fantastic! This is a new era in the world of WordPress. For me, the release of Divi 3.0 is much more important issue iPhone7 today. Great job!

  154. This is incredible. I’m going to completely forget how to code. Thank you for letting be get back to being a designer instead of a coder. Bisous!!

  155. Congratulations and thank you to the entire Elegant Themes team for all your hardwork. I can’t believe the 100 days is already up!

  156. Thanks for your hard work!

  157. Out-standing work! Great update! Great theme! ET You won the internet!!!

  158. Installed Divi 3.0 like a dream. I am playing with it right now, it’s beyond magic! Love it, and as it’s already 1am in the morning, I have no idea how I am going to leave it alone and get any sleep! I wanted to post gratitude and say thank you, however I am just speechless. Well done ET, I really don’t know what to say, your wrong Nick, it’s not magic it’s way beyond magic, It’s quantum magic !!

  159. Game changer finally!

  160. Best Update ever.No words to describe.Love Elegant theme ad Divi

  161. Best Update ever.No words to describe.Love Elegant theme ad Divi

  162. Finally! So excited to see the demo. Really well done!

  163. A W E S O M E !!!

    thanks ET team 😉

  164. You’ve revolutionized the way we build sites and interface with clients! Thank you!

  165. Look forward to working with this.

  166. This is amazing! I can’t wait for the Divi builder to have this capability! Great Job!!

  167. Seriously. This is paradigm shift. Stunning. Everything else just became obsolete. THANK YOU.

  168. so can anyone tell me where i activate the function so i can edit in frontend.. i have updated to 3.0 and the latest divi builder but i cant see where i activate the edit options

    • In the black admin bar at the top of the page you will see a new activate visual builder option. Click that and start editing!

      • When the black admin bar is not enabled to my user, I can’t switch back to backend editor from visual frontend editor.

        • If you have the admin bar disabled simply remove “&et_fb=1” from the url to get out of the visual editor mode.

          • This is good to know. But I do think it would be ideal to have a button that is apart from the admin bar. Maybe it can open in the bottom hidden menu of the DIVI editor? The one in the middle that pops out with other options?

  169. I’m really excited about this new version of Divi. It’s simply awesome. Thank you guys!

  170. Uhm….i update my extra theme but i can’t use the new visual builder. Why?

    • In the black admin bar at the top of the page you will see a new activate visual builder option. Click that and start editing!

      • How long should it take to load? When I try to load the visual editor from either the admin bar on the page or from the page editor, the little dots spin forever – so far not loading no matter what plugins I deactivate, how many times I refresh the page, or logging out and in again…..

      • Hi Nathan,

        In Divi 3, I get the Enable Visual Builder option on the frontend.

        But, in Extra, I get Edit Layout but I don’t see the additional button Enable Visual Builder.

        Thinking it could be a cacheing problem, I clearly the cache but still the visual builder button does not appear.

  171. Très beau boulot ! Félicitations ! Great work, amazing !

  172. No update notification on Divi yet. What’s up?

    PS: Super excited!

  173. Hope you have improve the contact, header & gallery modules also….

  174. AHH! Finally its here! So how do I upgrade to 3.0? Will my authenticated site pop up with an upgrade option?

    • Your WordPress Admin Updates section will notify you that an update is available. If you can’t wait you can do it manually by downloading the latest version from the member’s area.

      • Slightly confused … latest version from member’s download area is named Divi-2.zip. Is this 7.9MB file actually 3.0?

        • Never mind. The current download just appended the -2 since I had another divi.zip in my download folder. I installed the current download and it is 3.0. Duh.

        • If you’re downloading from the members area next to the theme Divi, then the zipped file name will simply be Divi.zip. It currently contains Divi 3.0.

      • Hello, this 3.0 is super exciting but i am not receive any updates on WP dashboard. So i have tried to manually upload but it failed. it says Installing the theme… Destination folder already exists. /data/home/qxu1608630048/htdocs/wp-content/themes/Divi/- Theme install failed. Any solutions?thanks

        • Hi Marc, sorry you’re having difficulties. Please create a ticket in our support forum so that someone can follow up with you: https://elegantthemes.com/forum

  175. how do I update a previous divi to divi 3.0?

    • If you have Divi installed you can simply wait for the update to appear in WP Admin and update your theme just like you normally would.

      • I don’t have Divi installed. I have only extra. My extra is update to 2.0 version but i can’t see the option for the visual building. I have to install divi theme too?

        • The visual builder is included in Extra 2.0 as well. In the black admin bar at the top of the page (when you’re on the front-end of your site) you will see a new “activate visual builder” option. Click that and start editing!

          • I assume visual builder doesn’t work on Category Builder pages then? Cause I don’t see an option for it.

  176. The Iron Throne is about to change kings again. LONG MAY HE REIGN!!!

    (And by Iron Throne, I mean the spot as my #1 page builder)

    (And by kings, I mean Divi is overthrowing the current one)

    (And by reign, I mean I’m going to be using this forever)

    • Maybe you like my main company name Excalibur Websites, Inc.

  177. Amazing to see how far ElegantThemes has come over the years.

  178. Great !!!

  179. Woo! This is amazing, just got it installed and its so fast its crazy! This is the best front end editor ever. And on top of this it looks the same as it did on the back end, but wait, its on the front end now!!!! AMAZING 100%!!!!!!!!!

  180. Looks amazing, looking forward to the divi builder release so I can try this out!

  181. Cheers Nick and the team. Can’t wait to try this out in earnest. I have some potentially useful ideas for you.

    Is there an email address I could send them too?

    Many thanks.

  182. Just downloaded………what fun ! Nice work here!

  183. I’ve been looking forward to this release – seems to be worth the wait! The live demo was a nice touch.

  184. Actually amazing!!!

  185. Thanks guys! This is awesome!

  186. Awesome!

  187. Wow, what an achievement. Congratulations! The demos look incredible.I can’t wait to use it.

    Is there a place where you’d like us to record bugs if we find any?


  188. What the heck happened to the “Background Color” option in the text module advanced design section so you could lay a semi transparent color behind your text for readability when placed over an image? It used to be an option just before the background image option and was incredibly useful.

    • It’s still there. Under the “Text Line Height” setting under the “Design” tab.

      • Thanks something went wrong with my update, reinstalled and things that were missing are all back again.

  189. This is just a amazing job. Keep going!

  190. Quick question, can i upgrade from 2.7 to 3.0 without losing anything, or is it just for a fresh webpage? Tried manually installing the theme but tells me there is a folder named divi already, If i uninstall first the older version i lose everything, so I’m kinda lost here.

    • Yes you can update just like you normally would. Simply refresh you updates section in the wp admin until you see a new Divi update appear.

  191. Awesome! Sums it up.

  192. I’ve always wanted this! Thank you 🙂

  193. Elegant Themes has created something awesome here. I have been testing it, and though it is going to take some time to get used to the front-end editor, I can see the potential.

    Upgraded to a lifetime membership, WITHOUT the discount, I didn’t want it because the team deserves every penny for their hard work. If everything I purchased was this helpful to my business, I could retire tomorrow.

    Thanks Again!

  194. The visual editor looks so much easier!

  195. Excellent work. Keep them coming!

  196. Divi have been the best drag and drop builder we have ever used. We tried them all. All other should just give it up – Its a done deal with Divi.

    Would you try to create another Google? Divi is hands down the best!

  197. Awesome, I’am testing in my website. How can save changes when I drag a module to give more padding?

    Thanks for this amazing tool! ^^

    • I found sorry, xDD

  198. I like how I can use it to make updates from my phone. Great work guys!

  199. Having trouble updating, keep getting update failed.

  200. Nevermind, update Finally appeared.

  201. Awesome!!!
    Looks extremely effective and pragmatic and certainly the only theme that i’ll work with!!
    Thank’s ET for a brilliant Masterpiece!

  202. Absolutely brilliant, but the visual builder won’t work with Strong Testimonials plugin, so will need to find one which does. Got a launch day myself today, won’t upgrade on that site yet!

  203. Thank you for the celebratory discount. I just upgraded to lifetime. Yay!

  204. I believe it will make job of guys like me (not full fledged WordPress developer) much easier.
    I hate to add custom CSS for everything, hope Divi 3.0 will force me less often.


  205. I use Extra on two sites and I love the new DIVI framework 3, my articles will be more easy to write.

  206. Wow, it’s amazing. Can’t wait to build a new site with it. Thank you for all of the incredible work.

  207. Congratulations!

  208. A little clunky but will be helpful for text and some minor placement changes. I am still having a difficult time understanding why we cannot get a 6 or more column layout added to the builder.

  209. Oh, this is awesome. I can’t wait to see what I can create now! Thanks guys for all your hard work.

  210. Hi. Beautiful product! I have a lifetime developers license. Does that mean I will receive this new release at no additional cost?


    • That’s correct! Enjoy!

  211. Been waiting for this to launch my new projects…YAY!!

  212. Can’t wait to try the new Divi Builder plugin, hope it’s out soon! With the revisions/history, will storing all those revisions impact the database size/speed and if post revisions are limited (ex. if it’s been limited to 3) will that affect the divi builders history as well?

    • All of the changes are stored temporarily in the app, none of them are stored in the Database.

  213. Just finished reading and watching today’s blog post. I’m super excited to work with Divi 3.0! Thank you so much for all your hard work on this and the 100 Days leading up to this. Amazing!

  214. Good work.

  215. I would love to win one of the free accounts as I’m a student, so the price tag even for the cheapest option means I would have to go without food for 4 weeks 🙁 Trying to start a small business while at university and this would be really beneficial.

    Tried the demo and it’s amazing :O

  216. Great work! Keep it up!

  217. This is an awesome theme!

  218. Well done ET team. A day to remember! Congratulations. I look forward to taking it for a spin!

  219. Finally, the awaited time has come. Feel Happy!

  220. Simple DIVIne 😀

  221. Congrats ET team with this release. DIVI beast mode on…

  222. Looks great! when does the 3.0 update drop for existing members?

    • It’s already available in our members area for you to download. If you have Divi or Extra currently installed the easiest thing to do is simply to wait until the updates section of your wp admin shows that the update is available. If you’re not seeing it now, refresh that page and give it some time. It’ll be there I promise!

      • Olá! Eu gostaria de saber se é possível disponibilizá-lo para mim também? Desde já Obrigado, Sucesso e mais uma vez Parabéns a todos.

      • Congrats to you all!
        I’m an existing member and my wp admin already shows that the update is available, but when I try to update I get this error message: “Update Failed: The theme is at the latest version.”

        • Same here 🙁

  223. This is amazing!! One Hell of a product!! Great Job!

  224. Finally made it to this day! You guys have done an awesome job, can’t wait to give the new baby a test drive.

    Keep up you good and creative job. Cheers!!

  225. Fantastic release !
    Thanks a lot for that great job (except for this night which risks to be without sleep to be able to test everything !)

  226. This is truly amazing work. Still having a hard time grasping the fact that I can “Realtime-Edit” my sites, and with Incredi-Speed. A big round of applause goes too the entire team, thank you for the great work. Cheers 🙂

  227. Epic! Can’t wait to test it out!

  228. F*A*N*T*A*S*T*I*C ….. it is what I can speak directly from Brazil. I’m really impressed with the quality and ease. A big thanks ET.

  229. Finally it’s here ! Congratulations !!!

  230. Congratulations guys! More power! Joined your giveaway. Hope I win!

  231. Excited to dive into Divi 3.0! Looks great!

  232. Amazing product !! I should try Demo hopefully this theme got more interesting feature.Lifetime account user will get this update rite?

    • Yes, as a lifetime member you will get this update for free as part of your ongoing membership.

      • Hi Nathan, I have a lifetime membership at the moment.

        Should I download the divi builder plugin again? The plugin (v2.9 or something) has not been updated automatically unfortunately.

        Gonna try it out anyway, hope it will work… I’m too excited haha 🙂

        But please let me know.

  233. It looks amazing. I can’t wait to play with these new features!

  234. guys, I congratulate you,
    every time they release a new product I think, “that good desicion took a few years ago to subscribe to Eleganth Themes … just try the demo of DIVI 3.0 and is incredible,
    I’m a graphic designer, illustrator adobe user, and from the first time you type something in html, I dreamed of a site editor so … have really made my dream come true, thanks for so much dedication and work,

    PS: some believe strict security system roles so that our clients do not access the editor, because if they start to get their hands on the site, in a few seconds pueder destroy our work !! 🙂

    • Divi has a very comprehensive roles system 🙂 You can control every aspect of the builder, or disable it completely.

      • Hi Nick, a wonderful “Good evening” and the entire development team.
        I would like very much to thank you all for the work done in recent months. You have your users entertained not only with an exciting 100 days countdown, but nor can given away a lot of tips, tricks, snippets and layouts, like a huge flower bouquet for us. (This was certainly a crazy expense)! You have thus made an important leap that will save more than just the company’s survival.
        You have opened the first step into a new future of web design. I have Visual design in realtime able to experience at this pace and this quality only with you.
        I’m incredibly excited about the performance enhancements we can expect with the Divi 3.1.
        So: Thank you all and a wonderful weekend. You did it you really deserve.
        Bernd from Berlin

  235. Best thing I’ve ever purchased! I was a bit skeptical at first but I feel like every penny I’ve ever spent was well worth it.

    Thank you so much and congratulations on Divi 3.0 launch!!

  236. Amazing!!! Thanks so much!

  237. Amazing work guys!

  238. Wow. Love the demo. If speeds hold up on normal hosting environments it will be brilliant to empower clients once setup. I can’t wait to test on my servers.
    Thanks in advance to all the team… you’ve done it again!

  239. Fantastic job Nick, Mitch, Nathan, Andy and all other ET team members. It has been an incredible thing to watch the evolution of Elegant Themes and Divi


    #wordpressgamechanger #thereisnolimit

  240. WOW! nice support. Thanks guys!

  241. Having an anticlimactic moment here in the midst of all the praise and joy.
    Have updated to 3.0 on multiple sites and when I click on “Use Visual Builder” button I simply get a blank white screen. Tried three sites thus far all the same.
    What have I missed? (Used WP updater for all sites).

    • Sorry about that Jeff. Have you tried disabling all of your plugins? Please open up a support ticket so we can take a look.

      • I let the sites rest over night and voila! it works this morning. Now I get to play.
        By the way, it’s refreshing to see your crew engage with users.

  242. 5.0 stars. Loving it already. So easy to use and love how it works well with Divi. Can’t wait to use it on Extra. Thanks for the hard work and long hours.

  243. I’ve been waiting all morning for this, can’t wait to start using 3.0!

  244. And already the Divi forum is infested with bug reports.

    Three cheers for Divi 3.1.

  245. what a journey been looking this plugin for years, but dont have a chance to use it on my personal website, hope I win the giveaway 🙂

  246. Bravo, guys. So impressive!

  247. At last, very excited it is here. When the 100 days started it seemed like forever away and not it’s here 🙂

  248. *now

  249. Thanks a ton to all of you team elegant! Your hard work will reduce a lot more time in future! Thanks again

  250. Looks fantastic!

  251. Looks fantastic! Can’t wait to dive in and get started. Thanks for your continued dedication to excellence and elegance! 🙂

  252. Unbelievable cool!!

    Just installed on my site really nice progress!!

    I was counting the days and now it is here!!

  253. Thanks for you Divi 3.0, great 🙂

  254. I am so excited to try this out!!

  255. I cried, I cried, I cried …
    It’s like a dream come true!
    My God, an absolutely fair price for such a powerful tool!
    Update very smooth and simple. It’s just recopy the credentials and go to the update page.
    And thank you, thank you, thank you.

  256. Amazing work!

  257. Conflicts with Yoast and Adrorate

  258. Incredible! Wonderful!

  259. We’re not worthy!

  260. I want to have this so bad!

  261. SUPERB DIVI 3.0
    Million thx for great works!!!

  262. Amazing! Just updated quickly and seamlessly! Thank you!

  263. Maybe a small step for mankind. But what a huge leap for webdesign!

    • Haha!

  264. Great! Best Theme

  265. So excited for this update. You guys are amazing!

  266. Excited to try it!

  267. Really digging the new v3 release – but I have a quick question…

    I do a lot of sites for mobile display, so the instant view on mobile devices was the first function I tried out in the test-drive page.

    I thought the instant preview of mobile devices in Divi3 would be a real help – but it is not. All those previews do is squish in the left / right page sides of the browser viewport, which is NOT a “mobile view.”

    You cannot switch the orientation (portrait / landscape) of the tablet and mobile phone “preview” nor can you see how much (of the scrolling page) would actually display on the phone screen. With these shortcomings, the mobile preview function is just a visual novelty, and not much of a design / development tool.

    Will these issues be addressed in a subsequent release?

    Thank you again for the amazing work on Divi3

  268. Wow…Looks amazing 🙂

  269. So happy and just tested it quickly and looks awesome will be using this for next few projects.Thank you, you guys did great job.

  270. but how did you manage it? you are magicians …

  271. I was so impressed with the Divi 100 series that as I followed it I also became aware that I would become a Divi user. Today I made the switch from Rapid Weaver to WP/Divi by purchasing 3.0.

    I can’t say how much I appreciate the sincerity and vision of the Divi crew and the commitment demonstrated by them in creating the 100 series. Not to mention the beauty of 3.0

    Great work!

  272. First Thanks to Nick and all his TE team for this magnificent work being presented today, is indeed the result of hard work done by professionals. But, I believe it was worth it right? Thanks again and Success to all.
    Em primeiro lugar Obrigado ao Nick e a toda sua equipe do TE por esse magnifico trabalho que está sendo apresentado hoje, certamente é o resultado de um árduo trabalho feito por Profissionais. Mas, acredito que valeu a pena não é mesmo? Mais uma vez Obrigado e Sucesso a todos.

  273. Good job Guys 😉

  274. This looks absolutely amazing.

    One quick bug that I hope will be sorted soon: I’ve installed 3.0 on my WooCommerce site and none of my product tabs are showing up on the individual product pages. Anyone else having this problem?

  275. I know Divi 2.0. was an awesome update, but this just take smy breath away! You are now by far THE best visual builder!

  276. Really excited about this will be using it in the next few days.

  277. Okay this Divi Visual Builder works! But, you’d better know what you’re doing on the page otherwise you change it up too much.

    And to think some designers thought 3.0 would put them out of business, no way!

    I’m a user not a designer or a developer, but from now on I’m going to experiment and be more adventurous just because I can.

    • +1

  278. Yuuuu-uuuu!!!!!

  279. Hi!

  280. Hi, ET Team !

    Your Divi 3.0 is amazing ! Will download and use it and ask readers – friends to use theme. The demo of the elegant themes Divi 3.0 is good.

    Congrats and Happy Holidays – you guys surely need a vacation after a major work in Themes.

    There was Typo in your Membership Upgrade option page:
    “20% Off All Upgrades For A Limited Time!
    To celebrate the launch of Divi 2.7, we are offering a huge discount.”

    • Whoops, fixed it. Thanks!

  281. For those of us who go back into the stone ages of “paste up” and “litho” I would compare the release of Divi 3.0 to when we went from art boards and wax to our first Mac SE30 running QuarkXpress for the first time, being able to see what you create on the fly has always been the downfall of web design for those of us who are not “code geeks”, finally, a program that let’s designers be designers, this is truly a winner!

    • ah yes, memories, I was there too. good comments. ツ

  282. Absolutely stunning! Divi 3.0 might really change the wordpress landscape and the way websites are build!
    I was really surprised that even the dutch translation is already implemented! Thank you again!

  283. Wonderful! Thanks you Elegant Themes. Can’t wait to try it .

  284. It is looking really good. I just wanted to make sure, has anyone tried to the text module, it seems the font size is not working

  285. That´s awesome! Well done!

  286. How I edit line-height?

    • Hover over the center of your text module. Some grey controls will appear. Click the icon that looks like a gear and you will get a dialogue box. Go to the design tab of that dialogue box and scroll down to the line height setting.

  287. Great work.. But can somebody please verify that it is actually saving changes. I have used 2 laptops each with chrome and edge and both are not saving any changes I make. I spent an hour and a half perfecting a page and lost it all :/ anyone using a specific browser that allows them to save everything?

    • Are you using the save button in the bottom right corner? To reveal, click the purple button in the center at the bottom of the page.

    • We are getting ready to start a documentation overhaul 🙂

  288. I will be udating my sites today with the new version, I am really exicet about this change!!

    Hope to not have a problem with the upgrade 🙂

    Nice Job Elegant Themes!!!

  289. Yes… I too want to know how to report bugs… I found one (and it’s really annoying). ‘-(

    BUT I LOVE THIS 3.0… omg… it’s sooooo cool!

  290. WOW! I can’t wait to try it! This looks amazing and the user experience ?? Well done Divi team!

  291. Thanks for all your hard work on this! It doesn’t disappoint.

  292. Wow!

  293. Only one word. Awesome!
    I really love Divi and all Features.
    I cannot wait to try it.

  294. Al fin a salido, Felicidades, estoy seguro que este theme evolucionara la forma de crear Sitios Webs.

    Nuevamente Felicidades Amigos.

  295. Good!! It’s really a good work… Congratulations!

  296. Wow. Thanks to the whole Elegant Themes team for their hard work. Divi 3.0 is really impressive.

  297. Thank you so much! That will be a new era for web design.

  298. Welcomed update but would hardly call this revolutionary. Seems very similar to Visual Composer but with less features such as the ability to specify thumbnail size for images and add css effects to text.

    • You can add CSS effects to anything in Divi 🙂

    • David,
      Isn’t one still in a box in VC?

  299. OMG! HEAVEN!!! So excited! I’ve already played with it! This is game changing! THANK YOU for putting all those other “drag and drop” themes to shame! Not only through a great theme like Divi but with the community you have built and how you have done this 100 Days of Divi! Frickin’ awesome! LOVE LOVE LOEV

  300. Awesome. Going to use it on my website

  301. Congrats Team! Awesome to see this come to life 🙂 I’m sure whatever is next will be even more revolutionary 😉

  302. This is truly awesome!

  303. Game changer!!. I am dying to start a new website with Divi 3.0

  304. fantastic work – thanks for the great job! I’ve been saving a project to start till this was ready and I can’t wait to play with it!

  305. Can’t wait to dive in!

  306. So, new iPhones announced today and Divi 3.0. Think Elegant Themes have Apple beat today!

  307. I’ve been using the new Visual Divi Builder now for about 2 minutes and it’s already the best web editor I’ve ever used. This is easily going cut my design time down substantially. AWESOME work guys!!! Thank you for all your efforts!

  308. Awesome work ET, Just try it no my new project.

  309. Looks great!

  310. Well done everyone!

    As a designer whose background and day is mostly spent on traditional print design it is heaven to use such a fast, intuitive front-end editor to build pages and sites. To have the same control ove a font and colour change or where within the ‘page/screen’ structure that I do with inDesign, Illustrator or photoshop.

    Brilliant work. I do agree with others over the flexibility of the menu and footers. BUt I know you are all striving to work on these things.

    I said a few years ago to an IT guy I worked with that one day web would mirror print and designers would lead the way as, well we first see with our eyes and no matter how much a site works if it looks bad people will go away. It is a simple case of locking in branding.

    Once again well done. This front-end update really inspires, as a designer and someone who looks at things visual, and shows that creating child themes is a real possibility and within the grasp of non-technicals (coders).

    Cannot thank/applaud you all enough!

    *am off to set up a dev site to have a play!*

  311. Awesome! So far I love it!

    Quick question:
    Does the new builder work with pages that are already designed with the old page builder? I’ve noticed that if I create a new page, the visual builder works perfectly, but if I try to use it on a previously created page, it just shows a blank shite screen.

    • Yep, it will work fine with previous pages you have built. It sounds like you have found a bug though, so please open up a support ticket so we can take a look. The first thing I would do is disable all of your plugins to see if one is causing a conflict.

  312. New Divi is awesome, I am in for it !!!

  313. The 100 day wait is OVER. I can’t wait to get in and play with this now that the visual editor is available. Thanks for sharing so much information on customizations

    • Have fun!

  314. I would love for the development team to work on performance next. Divi sites often load tons of CSS and JS files, many on them un-minified or otherwise not optimized for performance. Our Divi sites perform poorly on tests like Google PageSpeed. We’ve also found some of the features like button shortcodes are showing their age and could use an update.

    • Divi 3.1 is our Developer and Performance focused update 🙂

      • Thanks for the quick reply Nick.
        When is this 3.1 Developer and Performance focused update going to be released approximately?

        Because I like what you have done with Divi but I never used it because it loads really slow and has all these Javascripts and CSS files on each page.

        I know this is not going to be huge issue down the road when HTTP/2 (SPDY) and parallel requests but it just does not feel right with a great tool like yours.

        So any information on when we can expect that 3.1 Performance update would be appreciated.

        Thanks in advance.
        Best regards,

  315. Congratulations to everyone involved in the making of Divi 3 and the new builder, time for some sleep now I suppose guys. I’ve tried many so called visual builders so I seemed quietly sceptical. I have to say Divi 3 is a game changer a true ‘VISUAL BUILDER’ unlike anything else I’ve tried.

    My WordPress test site is up and running with Divi 3, it’s taking a fair old bashing and holding up perfectly.

    Divi 3 proves that no other WordPress builder deserves the right to use the word ‘Visual’

    I’m actually looking forward to redesigning a few of my sites from scratch with Divi.

  316. This is cool. Waiting since 100 days of announcement and Finally getting hands on to Divi 3.0
    It will surely make life easier for designers “designers go home early” 😛

    -Love Divi


  317. Best user interface builder ever!
    Great job Elegant Developers!! 🙂

  318. Awesome, I’ve been looking forward to this day.
    Thank you so much for all the hard work.

  319. You guys are amazing! I think I will be up all night tonight :o) I’m like a kid on Christmas. Thanks for the fantastic work that you all have put in :o) I wish you continued success!

  320. Looks incredibly great! Thanks for the hard work.

  321. Oh, wow! I just recently started my blog, and at my age (48), new technology doesn’t exactly come naturally to me, so this just blows me away!

  322. hoping for new contact form options

  323. Very, very fast, and easy to learn and use. Excellent work from the WHOLE TEAM! Was put to use within seconds of the update!

  324. IT LOOKS AMAZING! I love using DIVI!!

  325. Amazing work guys, this is what was missing…!!!!
    Love it.

  326. Yeahhhhh!!! Thank you, it’s awsome

  327. So excited for this! Can’t wait to get home to use it.

  328. Awesome! You really created something great! Can’t wait to work with the new version. Thanks for that!

  329. How do I save changes on a page?

    Does it have any issues with W3 total cache

    • We are seeing reports of various plugin compatibility issues, and we will be working them as best as possible this week. Best thing to do is disable all plugins and then enable them one by one to find out what is causing the issue. Then open up a support ticket so we can investigate. As for W3 Total Cache, a possible cause of the problem could be JS minification and combination.

  330. Awesome! Been counting down with you in this 100 day marathon!

  331. Where are the user requests?

    – Being able to work with more than four columns.

    – Edit with Divi the footer.


    I’m very disappointed. 😈 😥

    This has been a facelift. It added a visual way of working, but where are the improvements that users need?

    • We think it’s a ginormous improvement that will benefit everyone, but don’t worry this isn’t the end of the Divi improvements. One thing at a time, but it’s just going to get better.

  332. New version Divi 3. Yeah, so what?

    • ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

      • UP

        • SIDEWAYS

    • Have you done research and seen what other stuff is out there?

  333. So excited! Thank you!!

  334. Just awesome! Looking forward to update my websites 😀

    Best from Germany, Bettina

  335. Hope to see more column options like 1/5, 1/6 in short future.

  336. Just loaded Divi 3.0, watched all the above videos, great music btw 🙂 Ready to dive in, thanks guys!!!

  337. Finally!!! 😀 My god I’ve been waiting! Can’t wait to get started 🙂

  338. Update Failed: The theme is at the latest version. WHHY GOD HATES ME!

    • This is a bug since WP 4.6, sorry about that. You can use the Dashboard > Updates page to update instead and it will work! It’s fixed in Divi 3.0, so future upgrades will work from the Appearances > Themes page.

      • I have same issue. “An error occurred while updating Divi: The package could not be installed. The package contains no files.”

        from Divi 2.9.16 to Divi 2.9.19. There is no 3.0. I am a beta tester

        • Nm, I had to disable the beta tester plugin.

      • I had the same problem but fixed by doing the following.
        1. open website ftp via file editor/cpanel
        2. locate the themes folder from within WordPress
        3. copy Divi to Divi2
        4. Open WordPress and navigate to appearance>themes and select the second DIVI theme (not active) and activate it.. (This will free up the original DIVI theme)
        5. Now you can install the Divi 3.0 update you have downloaded from elegant themes.

        It worked fro me.. sorry if these instructions are simple, someone may want to provide detailed step by step with images.

  339. Amazing! I’m very excited!!!

  340. Today the 7th September is my 57th birthday. I’m so excitided that I’m writing this comment beside my wife, 5 daughter’s and 5 grandchildren in a restaurant in the UK. CONGRATULATIONS. I cannot wait to get home. Thank you all for the Divi experience.

    • Happy Birthday Errol!

  341. Worth the wait! Finally a WordPress website development platform that doesn’t get in the way of the design process!

    Well done!

  342. Looking forward to it

  343. Awesome update…

  344. Well done ET team, looks like a great product. Can’t wait to give it a proper try. Stunning work all round!

  345. Awesome! Thanks you guys.

  346. I wasn’t delighted with the visual builder idea, but I must admit it works like a charm.

    • Glad to hear it!

  347. It’s fantastic to actually use it after seeing all the promising stuff. Great job, keep it up!

  348. Alrighty. Let’s take the new car for a ride 🙂

  349. I can’t seem to update the theme to 3.0. I have tried the usual method and the new update isn’t showing. I am a lifetime member and this is very frustrating.

    • Do it manually by uploading through FTP.

      That’s whay I did.

  350. I use Divi for 1,5 years and although there have been a lot of changes for the better, this one is best update I’ve seen so far! This makes my work so much easier. Thank you, elegantthemes, for you did agreat job!

  351. Holy whatsit,

    that 100 days flew past!! I know what tomorrow will be spent doing now!

    Great work guys!

  352. Awesome work guys!

  353. still no real header customisation, just the same old options? would have been awesome to be able to adjust the header and nav as a module….

    • Don’t worry, we aren’t stopping with Divi improvements. One thing at a time, but it’s going to keep getting better and better 🙂

  354. Thank you, Elegant Themes! It’s beeooutiful! Testing it on a dev site that was running 2.7 and nothing broke, everything is so slick! It is still so intuitive— well, everything except I can’t find how to save my visual builder changes. Can someone clue me in?

    • When you click the purple “control doc” button in the center of your screen (at the bottom), it will expand and reveal a save button in the right-hand corner.

      • Very nifty! I hadn’t seen the control doc yet. Too cool! Thank you. You guys have done great work.

  355. For one hundred days I have been following the progress, for one hundred days I have waited, for one hundred days you have sky rocketed my expectations and still you blew my mind! You nailed it.

    Now my clients can look forward to us using less time developing and more time on creating an experience that converts their traffic.

    You are awesome!

  356. I am thrilled after all the wait NOW I can build my website at last!!!! Super excited. Thank you Nick & Team Divi for all your hard work.

  357. WOW! Amazing! Keeps on getting better. You guys never disappoint!

  358. Divi already were a terrific theme, this is an wonderful improvement

  359. La révolution est en marche! Bravo.

  360. Good idea with the demo. Will need some practice but i will try it as soon as possible on our page.

  361. Does not appear to be working with meta slider……

    • If you are running into any issues, please open up a support ticket so we can take a look. We will do our best to address third party plugin compatibility issues.

  362. Cant help loving you!

  363. I’m so excited at this highly anticipated update! Congratulations, to Nick and the team! One question: is anyone else having trouble installing the update? For some reason my theme I can’t get it to update. It has been “updating” for the past hour or so. Any thoughts?

    • You can try going to Dashboard > Updates and clicking the Check Again button a few times. Unfortunately it can take a while for the update notifications to appear in some cases.

      • The update notification is there, but when I click it, it just keeps thinking and thinking. It says “updating” for hours.

      • The update notification is already there, but when I click update it just continues to think . . . It says “updating” for a long period of time, then it says “update failed.” I’ve tried it several times already. Can I uninstall the theme and reinstall the updated theme?

  364. Finally out! Been waiting all day for the upgrade to be available 😀
    Astonishing job guys!

  365. Hi,

    Stunning is the word. Great work.

    Please advise if Divi 3 will work as a plugin on top of the Genesis framework.

    If so, will significant customization be required?


    • We will soon be updating the Divi Builder Plugin with the new visual builder, and it will work great with just about any theme. You can already use the Divi Builder with Genesis. We have a lot of customers doing that 🙂

      • Thanks, Nick. Good to know. Exciting stuff.

  366. Thank you so much for all the hard work… you are so appreciated!!!
    That’s awesome !!!

  367. Really good job! You’re great. Thanks for these 100 days and this amazing release.

  368. To “Everyone”, Thank You.. You all deserve a Good Vacation.. “Not at the same time, We still need the support team, on stand by.. Lol…” Cheers

  369. its amazing! thanks!!

  370. Great job everyone! Divi 3.0 looks amazing. I look forward to trying it out and playing with all the new features! Keep it up.

  371. Wow, it’s AMAZING! You guys did a great job. It’s more powerful than I thought it would be. I’m blown away!

  372. Can’t wait to test it out!

  373. Looks amazing!

  374. Awesome!!!!!

  375. Nathan, do you know why my Update isn’t showing. I really would like to use 3.0 and have been waiting for it for a long time. the usual method of updating the theme (using the plugin) isn’t working. Please help.

    • It can take some time to appear. You can try going over to the Dashboard > Updates tab and clicking the “Check Again” button a few times.

      • First, very good job !!
        Update is not still available ?? 😉

  376. I’m guessing you all are catching on to how much everyone loves Divi 3.0!!! haha I am impressed and excited! Great job to all of you!!!! Thank you!!!

  377. Great!

  378. So it’s finally here. Looking great. 🙂

  379. Totally Awesome!!!

  380. I can’t wait to use this on the site I’m currently building in Div. I’ve been longing for something as simple as this for years.

  381. Wow. Kudos. Salute. Awesome.

  382. Best update ever!! 😀

  383. Thank you elegant themes for your hard work.. divi look awesome now

  384. Looks solid, nice demo.

  385. I like it

  386. Than you for going all out just to bring us this. The wait is over and what’s left for us is to explore and give thanks for always surprising us with all these new features.

  387. Can’t seem to find it, is the A/B testing feature on the front end editor too or just the backend?

  388. Incredible work – yes a game changer, pioneering the way forward. Congratulations – it’s amazing and going to save me sooo much time (and money too)

    THANK YOU Elegant Themes 🙂

  389. Great work… Divi always the best!

  390. fantastic, thanks ¡¡¡¡

  391. I am still a novice but have truly enjoyed the 100 days launch emails! Currently, have a theme and not sure how to strategically switch without website shut down… fearful but SOOOO… want this DIVI Theme so I will never have to switch I can just redesign! #Revolutionary

  392. Loveit!

  393. Game changer! You guys and gals ROCK!!!!!

  394. Awesome! Can’t wait to use it on my website 🙂 Thanks!

  395. This is awesome. Works great. One problem though: it’s unclear how we are supposed to save textual changes. When I go to exit the visual builder, my browser tells me there are unsaved changes; if I exit anyhow, the textual changes I made are missing.

  396. Hi,
    I have lifetime membership I don’t see Divi 3.0 in my account download list?

  397. Fantastic!
    These guys are doing great work!

  398. Fantastic!
    These guys are doing great work!

  399. Wooooooooooow! Really I like it, thanks Elegant Themes.

  400. Really elegant and highly recommended theme ! Thank you for the good job 🙂

  401. After 100 days of goodness and you now do this – Divi 3.0! Oh Wow!

    I love the fresh upgrade and I can’t just wait to try out my hands at this.
    This is truly awesome guys! Well done!

  402. Looks great….but, how do you save/update the page you’ve edited?


    • I believe it all saves instantly, so no hassle with save buttons. That makes the right-mouse > UNDO function very important 🙂

      • Hmm maybe I’m wrong there: it seems you have to click the purple icon at the bottom and then hit SAVE in the bottom right to commit your changes.

  403. This changes everything about how I can manage my site with multiple authors and techno-phobes! Thank you for your work and your motivated design team!

  404. Excellent ! !! !!! 😀

  405. Great job ! I can not wait to try 🙂

  406. Installing Theme from uploaded file: Divi (1).zip
    Unpacking the package…

    Installing the theme…

    Destination folder already exists. /home/netstuff/public_html/wp-content/themes/Divi/

    Theme install failed.

  407. divi is SO LIT!

    I can’t stop playing on the demo LOL

    I don’t care about my site any more.

  408. I don’t really use Divi theme.
    I use Divi Builder with different frameworks, mostly with Headway.

    Given the changes to Divi theme, what can we expect from Divi Builder in the future?

  409. This is what a lot of us have been waiting for for the past 100 days and you sure don’t disappoint! You took an already amazing theme and made it spectacularly easy configure. Thanks a TON for this fantastic release, can’t wait to see what you guys think of next.

  410. After 100 days we are here! *Punches out of work and scurries home to finally try the new Divi 3.0!* Thanks for all of the hard work Elegant Themes!!

  411. To bad that The Visual Builder is not working with some need plugins I use. When will there be a product slider module to show product by category, date,bestseller etc? Until then I can’t use this nice visual builder.

  412. Wow. I enjoyed 2.0. 3.0 is the best visual based wordpress editor I have ever seen. Really happy about my purchase.

  413. Love this cannot wait to use it!

  414. It’s very good project, it’s why i choose eleganthemes.

    I have some request to optimize divi speed performance, because not all country have fast internet speed and many of them using mobile broadband (2G and 3G) 🙂

  415. Speechless.

  416. I can not Enable visual builder

  417. Hooray and congratulations! Can’t wait to try it out!

  418. Great job, thanks!

  419. Congratulations! This looks fabulous. Thank you for all your hard work!

  420. Great job, just upgraded and about to take it for a spin!

  421. What amazing work. Couldn’t wait to try

  422. This is the future! Its simply pure magic! I’ve been on the cockpit for some minutes and it felt sooooo good. However, how can I make a section? I can make rows, edit page but don’t see add a new section…seems I’m missing something…

  423. So excited for this new release. Can’t wait to redesign my website.

  424. Wow ..the wait is over.. awesome look and exxcited.. how everhope theme loading for viewers is not slowed down as it normally would… due to all this functionality


  425. I love it, updated all my clients and my sites, but I have to go out of town, so I won’t get to play with it until Monday 🙁 But I can’t wait! I’m already a lifetime member and I am using Divi on every new client I get. Keep on keeping on! Divi rocks!!

  426. Chaps, trying to renew developer subscription to test, however I do not seem to have the option for 20% launch discount – any ideas 🙂

  427. I am having trouble with text editing. The visual builder doesn’t recognize any text on my pages for me to edit. Is there a reason for this? Thank you, enjoying everything else so far!! 🙂

  428. Very impressive indeed! Truly living up to the name ‘Elegant’, Nick. Well done & thank you.

  429. I would sell my mother-in-law, if DIVI 3 would be available for other systems 😉

    Joking aside… I am coming straight from the amazing online demo, and I would like to report 2 small issues and first-5-minutes experiences:

    1. Drag’n’Drop behavior has one issue:
    If you grab an item, and for any reason change your mind, you can’t drop it on the same old position?! You can only drop it into a new position.

    2. Section background:
    I tried to create a transparent color overlay on the background image. A quite common design style. As far as I can see, there is no parameter option or combination that creates this effect. Finally I had to use the CSS tab, and had to enter custom CSS into pseudo-class “After”. I expected to find something by configuration.

    Maybe these are minor issues for other people, but it feels wrong to me in such a beautiful interactive application… and 3rd revision. BTW, the different UI styles are awesome. I always hated fixed narrow sidebars. You have created a very versatile solution. Missing a “bottom style”… just kidding… 😉

    Thanks for reading and listening.
    Best regards!

  430. You have convinced me, that magic exist.
    My best wishes and greatest congratulations.

  431. First of all, CONGRATS on all your hard work! I have been a long-time fan and user of Divi for all recent projects.

    Major issue: third-party shortcodes are rendered and then saved. For instance I have a shortcode that displays content from an XML feed. When I saved with visual editor the shortcode was replaced with the rendered content — making it static instead of dynamic. Good thing I caught it. Now I have to figure out how to safely put the shortcode back — probably revert to Divi Builder. This seems counterproductive. I can test with a simpler shortcode, such as one to insert the current date. I imagine that too would be save as the static date.

    Unless you already have a workaround to tell the editor to leave the shortcode as a shortcode, such as registering 3rd-party shortcodes with Divi…

    • Thanks for the report, we will investigate!

      • Nick, I really appreciate that you responded personally and quickly.

        I found a solution: wrap the shortcode in [protected][/protected].

        It seems someone thought of this!

        I found it because I was looking for a ET inline shortcode to experiment with and notice [protected].

        I’ll have to super aware when I edit pre-3.0 pages for any shortcodes that need to be wrapped.

        Again, thanks!

        • I should have re-read what I wrote and caught my awkward typos…

  432. Extraordinary. Elegant Themes is truly putting creative web design in the hands of regular users and, of course, empowering those with higher end skills, a platform to develop great user experiences without trampling around in technical underbrush. Thanks!

  433. Impressive!

  434. Can’t wait to use it. Thanks!!!

  435. Outstanding!

  436. Working like a charm. Best theme in the world. Thanks Nick and whole ET Team for the years of hard work.

  437. Is there anyway to stop the black bar with bold, italic, underline etc… from appearing all the time when you click on text? It’s very annoying when trying to write something. Would be better if this only showed when text was selected.

    • Good idea, we will look into it.

  438. Great work, just upgraded from Dev to Lifetime. Havent received an email nor seen changes in my account yet, but I assume that will happen.

    Looking forward to playing with Divi 3.0

  439. After using the Visual Builder for the first time I feel like a designer. Normally I would avoid adding some details to my websites due to the need to spend a lot of time testing and going back and forth the WordPress interface.

    Now I can create a website fast and do the changes live, it is like using photoshop but on the finished product, this is amazing. I saved a lot of time with a website I was finishing in the old Divi, it saved me a lot of time.

    Thanks for the update.

  440. The smartslider module is nowhere to be found. Intentional or just forgot?

  441. It’s crazy cool! Demo = super-fun, can’t wait to play on my site 🙂

  442. This seems amazing. Hopefuly I will have the time to get the free trial 🙂

  443. Nice!

  444. So only the builder was updated? Nothing else in regards to the theme and/or theme settings/features/options?

  445. One word! Amazing!

    Actually one word don’t cover it!

    Seamless upgrade, works first time with zero issues (at least for me), simple to use with zero to no learning curve if you already were using DIVI 2!
    Great work ET Team! You have excelled yourselves!

  446. It’s not even an update, really. It’s a beautiful overhaul.

    Thanks for the hard work, folks!

  447. Great work! Best builder ever!

  448. When you search the comments for the term “broke” and there is only one…… and it’s about how nothing broke. 🙂 Congrats guys on an epic update and 100 day campaign. Can’t wait to really get stuck in to the new bells and whistles.

  449. Congratulations! It’s looking good! Can’t wait to teach people how to use Divi 3.0!

  450. Gracias por el trabajo que se tomaron estaba ancioso por este dia!

    Thank you for the good job! i was waiting for this day!

  451. Freaking WOW I have been waiting what feels like for ever for this thank you guys great job !

  452. Hi, I tried and it is really cool.

    I have had one issue with the interface: it looks so slick and realtime, I would assume changes ale saved in real time. Instead there is a save button hidden 2 clicks away.

    going down to the “…” icon then click the safe button. It took me some time to find it, and I am not getting used to it.

    I would expect it to auto safe with a robust undo history. And to see a big flashing safe button as long as there are unsaved changes.

    Keep up the good work!

  453. The update is awesome, gonna try it on my test website but will definitely use it on my new projects. Thanks Elegant Themes!

  454. I found a bug, when you exit the front editor you can’t not see page title anymore both as user and even after being login in.

  455. Easy to fix yet massive error in the Visual Builder. Using the Visual builder to change to the size of a section or module the maximum allowable width the slider allows is 100 pixels which of course would leave your entire section a skinny little strip down the center of your website. It looks good in the builder but when you save and go live you see that it is actually only a skinny little 100 pixel wide section. The temporary fix is to type in the amount manually by guessing how many pixels it should be, say 1280 for instance instead of 100 and saving and then going to check the live site to see the results. Kinda defeats the purpose of a visual builder no?

  456. Looks awesome

  457. Have just been playing around with it and it is awesome!
    Well done, works really well.
    Just designed a complete page in a matter of minutes in stead of hours.
    Thank you very much!

  458. Awesome. Excited to see how Divi 3.0 wil disrupt other frontend website builder!

  459. Congratulations guys – I can’t wait to try it.

  460. I have updated my test site with Divi 3.0. It’s fantastic. Real time editor is superb and adding new modules and resizing and duplicating modules from front end help to change the total look and feel of the site within no time.

    Thank you boys. You are rocking!!. Expecting more excited from you guys.

  461. Simply Amazing.

    You guys just took website design to a whole new level.

    Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication.

    The ET Team is the Best in My Book 🙂

    • I forgot to mention that the update was smooth as silk.

      The front end editor works like a dream.

      Thanks again.

  462. One word… Wow! By profession I am an asp.net developer and I wish views were as easy to edit as this… I love playing around in WP and am Glad I bought the lifetime membership to et 🙂

  463. This is awesome, very little learning curve. So much time will be saved. Thanks for a killer product!

  464. muy bueno aunque esperaba mas funcionabilidades de modulos.
    Igual amamos Divi!

  465. How long before the visual builder will work with third party DIVI modules.

    I have the free person-extended module from elegantmarketplace and was wondering what was missing for it to show up in the visual builder?

  466. All I have to say is if this upgrade works as per your promo videos and is as fast on the front-end as shown then ET has revolutionized the way a builder works. The front-end builders I’ve seen really suck and are full of bugs. Even backend builders are clunky compared to Divi. Most of the time they reformat your entire layout and hardly ever work while losing your hard work. I love that Divi 3.0 and the Divi plugin are backwards compatible too. That was a big concern for me. I did notice one small flaw for the color picker during the promo for editing text. I noticed that there was no place to put HEX values as generally there are. So it seems you have to use the eyedropper to randomly pick a color. I hope this is not the case and it was just because it was a early demo shot.

    Really looking forward to test driving this. I’ve been waiting to update my site, now I have a reason. I also hope the Divi Bundle plugins that I just purchase through you Blog post will work on Divi 3.0.


    • Hey Matt,

      You can insert HEX values.

      I am currently working on a site with 3.0 and it is great to work with.

  467. Great Work. Testing it now looks good. Well Done.

  468. Jealous – both my Macs are being upgraded and DIVI 3 is here! Can’t wait to upgrade and take it for a spin. Cheers!

  469. Congratulations for the work. Thanks Elegant Themes.

  470. What’s in it for developers tho? For example, Divi has (had?) a distinct lack of hooks, making specialist customisations much more painful, requiring copying core code to a child theme and hacking it. When a filter or hook would have been sooo much easier.

  471. Divi 3.0 looks better than any page builder I’ve seen before. I must’ve tried them all 🙂

    I will definitely be checking it out asap. Can’t wait!



  472. I just have to say that I’m a happy paying customer.
    Please keep the good work! 🙂

  473. This is freaking awesome for years i been asking myself if was possible to have a tool like this to build what ever you can think of by far this is the best thing i seem out in the market place. i just started using divi my friend have been using since it came out he recommended it to me until i finally decided to use i think by far has been the best investment i ever done. very easy to use and you can i accomplish things much faster without reinventing the wheel.


  474. I have been putting the new release through its paces and really like what I see.

    A question: Is it possible to edit the title of a post in visual mode? I couldn’t get an editor to pop up for my regular post title.

  475. Oooh, I can’t wait to play!

  476. When are you going to update to the new Instagram logo? It’s almost been 4 months since the logo changed….ET seems to only be interested in adding new features instead of maintaining the current codebase.

  477. What a great Divi Updates. I’ve been waiting so long to see Website Builder with React.
    And the Divi New Builder was the first one. I’m going to update soon.
    Thank you ET !

  478. Thanks for the release. A small step for mankind, a giant leap for web designers 🙂

  479. I was waiting for that day the counter stops =).
    Great work guys. You’ve earned the “Wooow!”

    You can delete the previous message (wrong user name sorry, this one can stay)

  480. O tema ficou incrível! Vocês se superaram!

  481. This is Absolutely stunning work , I am amazed by the speed of everything . One thing that still bugs me is the Blogging side of things , As we can not edit or shape Blog pages or single posts in previous versions , Can we do something about this in this new version ?

  482. finally!! i can’t wait to start using divi and divi builder, i hope to win this!

    Congrats on your awesome work, you guys rock!

  483. I notice that Visual Builder not showing text module which contain revolution slider. any way to fix it?

    • That is a bit of a major problem here, Sure you are not going to be able to edit the slider, but it would nice if would show up though.

  484. I am loving this update already! Thanks for all the hard work and all that the ET team does!

  485. Great job! I’ve been a member since 2010 and have always been super impressed with your team. Thank you for delivering such amazing value, over and over again… 🙂 I’ve used it on multiple client sites with much success, and now it’s time to (finally) update my own site!

  486. Really it is so fast and surprising, but clearly a missing a control to handle individual module to adjust its size and add an extra column if necessary. I saw these features in many simple builders, but i don’t know why this is missing in such gigantic one.


    Thanks Nick and Divi team! 😀

  488. I’ve updated to Divi 3.0 and try to use it on my existing page. After try on ‘Use Visual Builder’ and it seems doesn’t work. It just a page without any editing tool with it.

    Updated to the new wordpress 4.6

  489. Why isn’t this a simple process for me? I have two websites, both running Divi 2.7.10. I clicked the word “update” and both of them failed, telling me that I am running the latest version.

    There are currently 549 comments on this post. I gave up trying to scroll through all of them trying to find a simple fix.

    I would greatly appreciate your help. Thanks.

  490. Oh my Gosh!!! in one word: SEXY!

  491. Awesome!

  492. awesome!

  493. credit card transaction keeps getting rejected, on both Amex and MasterCard, multiple times. please check.

  494. Congrats Nick and Team.

    Here you go, I am claiming “Game Changer”.

    Loving it. Just logged into our website and started playing.

    Am I imaging things, or do we have some extra icons to play with as well?

  495. How can I stop the black bar with bold, italic, underline etc… from appearing
    all the time when you click on text? It’s very annoying when trying to write something.

    Would be better if this only showed when I double click the text or when text was selected.

  496. Test drive Google Map – The map does not have enough options: No set zoom level, No custom map pins, No color variations, most of the options come with the most default higher end templates now a days..

    The locations add is nice and very easy to use but other then that its a shit module. which is sadly a map is one of the key features of my newest site.

    The system has its learning curve, but over all is very limited. just a lot of generic eye candy thus far.

  497. Exactly what I’be been waiting for. I’ve been happy with X but I think it’s time to reconsider. Well done ET 😉

  498. Looking forward to putting this Bad Boy to use!

  499. I think Divi so far surpassed my expectation of the Builders out there because honestly it can combine with any other themes but best with Divi theme. I have waited long enough for this release and I wanted to check this one out!

  500. This is really exciting!!!

  501. Very interesting! Waiting for trying so much!

  502. HI … I just downloaded it no probs but it is taking AGES – 5 min and still going… to load the ‘visual builder’??? I thought It was meant to be ‘super fast???’

  503. Excellent 🙂 does not yet have the chance of having a membership but always admire his work and the great team they have. I love WordPress.

  504. Excited! Can’t wait to try it.

  505. What a great release….waiting just end 🙂
    Thank you team for your awesome update.

  506. OMG! This is unbelievable! I just purchased developer license yesterday and today this update! I am blown away friends, I am blown away!

    Keep up the great great work. I deeply appreciate these customer centered efforts 🙂

  507. Great work 🙂

  508. v3 is simply amazing

  509. Looks amazing, well done! Hats off to the team at Elegant Themes. ?

  510. I remember those dark days when ET took a lot of flack for not bringing out new themes every month, users moaning and complaining about the $39 they spent to get ONLY 80 or so themes.
    I’ve always liked the path that you guys took pursuing Divi to what it is now.
    I always hung in there through all those “bad old days” to be awesomely rewarded with yet another fantastic theme Divi theme update.
    Well done ET!

  511. OMG! It is so great!

  512. Divi 3.0 is pretty awesome, I mean Elegant Themes was cool before but this is on a whole nother level!! That’s right, the level you took it too they don’t use the letter “a” in the word “another”.

    I picked a perfect time for a site redesign, yessss!

  513. It looks like unreal… I have to test this tonight. A dream for Designers, no Menue clutter, pure Design!

  514. Divi 3.0 is awesome, a revolution in the world wide web, sure.

  515. As someone who has worked with Adobe Muse for some time I have followed the development of the new version of Divi with some interest. Like many others I am a designer first and I’m looking for a medium which will allow me to focus on what I love and after watching the sneak peaks of videos and reading the blogs it looks like I’ve found an alternative with Divi 3.0. After playing with the Demo, all I can say is Wow!!! A definite game changer and Elegant Themes should be congratulated on it’s visionary approach, rather than resting on their laurels!

  516. Absolutly amazing work guys!

  517. Awesome guys – I can’t wait to dig in! Thanks for all your hard work and for the amazing build-up.

    • Odd though… I upgraded to 3.0 and nothing’s changed on the front end. Nothing’s clickable/editable (I am logged in).

      Is there something I’m missing?

      • Aaah – gotcha! “Enable VisualBuilder” in the admin bar. Problem is my one site has admin bar disabled for the front end. Is there any other way to enable the Visual Builder?

  518. This is the best builder for Worpress !!!

  519. So proud! Nice job, i really need it!

  520. Great news! Can’t wait to try it.

  521. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

  522. This is unbelievable!!!
    Absolutely incredible 😉
    And I thought Divis 1 & 2 were pretty amazing….but how can you even get better than this???

    A perfect ’10’ 😉
    Thank you!!

  523. Great Work!!
    But… why elegant themes updater will not let me update?

  524. Great!! Cool Design and Great Demo

  525. I think it looks great, can’t wait to use it!

  526. Looks amazing. Is the promo only for upgrades? What about potentially new clients coming the whole way from Bootstrap land?

  527. This is EPIC. I am so pumped to build my Funnels with DIVI 3! This builder can literally remplace many of the Page Building Tools I currently use. I am wondering if I could build a “checkout page” with DIVI and hook it to my CRM via API.

    Has anyone build a Checkout page with DIVI? 🙂

  528. Trying to use it, but the inline text editor (one of the best new features for me) is not usable at the start of the text because the text is covered by the row settings. Am I missing something?

    • In the row containing the text module, setting top padding to a minimum of 20px solves the inline text editor issue.

      The speed of the Visual Builder is certainly impressive!

  529. Amazing Stuff!!

  530. Thank you.

  531. WOW +

  532. Great stuff, looking forward to buy developer license

  533. The promo says it’s the WYSIWYG of the future, but it seems as the future is already here 🙂
    I agree with a previous comment that the “text pop-up” gets in the way when you click in a text paragraph and wants to type. When selecting text it is ok to get the popup because then you want to do something with the selected text.

    But hey, this is a giant leap forward when it comes to builders!

  534. Waiting it for so long, finally arrived.

  535. Hi, I’ve been designing websites for years and years from the days of Frontpage, pure html, Dreamweaver etc and in the past couple of years WordPress. I have to say that coming from the tools I’ve used in the past, Divi was great, I liked it a lot, but a bit cumbersome for me. Divi 3.0 however is just FANTASTIC. I am working on a site as we speak with a smile on my face. It’s like having a ball and chain removed from your body. You guys really have done a tremendous job with this and deserve all the success you get. Truly massive strides forward. Well done, really and truly. Great, great job!

  536. I am working on it since yesterday !!

    Realy cool jobs !!

  537. I love the theme! But I agree with a lot of others that there should be a way to alter the footer in the theme. It’s very essential in my opinion.

  538. Yea great, but why is this website that you’re telling us about Divi on not responsive? I’m looking at it on mobile and it’s unreadable.

  539. VERY Excited for this release. Looks like it’s going to RAWK!!!

    However……….I am not able to use the Visual Editor in combination with the Monarch plugin.

    I was getting a load error telling me that a third party plugin was not allowing the Visual Editor to load. So I closed all of them (Mostly all Elegant Theme plugins BTW) and turns out it’s Monarch that is the issue. Isn’t this also an Elegant Themes plugin?

    Is this a known issue? I use Monarch all over my site so can’t de-activate it hence I can’t use the brand new, sparkly Visual Editor. *sad face*

  540. Hi guys, not sure what I’m doing wrong, I’ve upgraded to Divi 3, but when I click on ‘Use Visual Builder’ (Back End) or ‘Enable Visual Builder’ (Front End) there are no changes, just the normal page showing up without any editing options… I’ve used another front end editing theme before, so I am familiar with this type of editing but maybe I have to change something in the setup that I’m not aware of… I’ve (1) updated via WordPress, (2) deleted and installed again and (3) installed via http://FTP... All results are the same. WordPress and all plugins are updated. Please help if you can….

    • Yay!! Working at last!! Not sure what was wrong though… Thanks for an awesome theme =)

  541. Appreciated work from Elegant team!! you made lot of free time on my work schedule!


  542. I just updated to version 3 and everything is working fine! It is FANTASTIC und a little MAGIC to work with the new pagebuilder!

    Thanks to you all – you have done a great job – as always!

  543. This looks amazing.

  544. A long wait but totally worthy! Great job guys!

  545. Speed of the demo is impressive. Needs some pratice but is fun to use so far.

  546. 100 long days but now we finally can enjoy this piece of art!
