Introducing The Elegant Themes Builder Plugin

A Powerful Builder Plugin For Any Theme

The Elegant Themes Builder is a plugin that provides some incredible tools for structuring the content on your page. These tools were previously only available in our Convertible theme, but now they have been added to a new plugin that will work with any theme. The plugin creates a visual drag-and-drop canvas where you can add, arrange and re-size advanced elements on your page. This builder appears below the normal text editor when you create a post or page, creating a unique canvas for each. The builder allows to you quickly create columns, sliders, tabs, buttons, toggles, boxes and so much more. This plugin will work with any theme, not just our themes! This plugin is only available for customers who sign up under the Developers Package, however, all of our current customers will get the plugin for free! (even if you are only on the Personal Package)

Use The Builder On Any Post

The builder is added below the text editor when writing your posts and pages, allowing you to create unique layouts for each post or page on your website. You can also disable the builder on individual posts if you don’t want to use it in any particular instance.

Choose From Countless Modules

The builder comes with what we call “modules.” Modules are various elements that can be added to your page. To add a new element to your page, simply drag the desired module from the list of available modules and drop it onto your canvas. You can then edit the module’s settings, adjust its size and change its location. These advanced elements allow you to create things that would previously require tons of html and javascript, such as image sliders, toggled content, stylish buttons, columns and more.

Draggable Adjustments

The size of your modules can be easily changed by simply clicking the edge of the modules and dragging it to your desired size.

Easily Rearrange Elements

The build is “drag and drop,” which means you get to arrange your content visually through a drag and drop interface. No longer will you need to sift through lines of shortcodes in the post editor, or even worse, lines of code in the HTML editor, when publishing your posts.

  1. Awesome job guys. I’ve been looking forward to something like this from you.

    • Awesome! 😀

      • this may have been the best plugins for themes customization since I am 1st using wordpress 6 years ago 😉
        Thanks and great job guys.

        • You are making things so simple than ever, thanks for such a great plugin.

    • woow this looks promising great work keep em coming

    • Wow, awesome stuff!

      what is the license on the plugin?

    • Nice Plugin


    • Loving the creative flow that this plugin provides.
      Nick, you’re a star..


    • I just tried this plugin and this is pretty amazing ! Thanks Elegant Themes 🙂

    • Really beautiful themes Congratulations!

  2. Awesome. This is perfect for all newbies or non-technical people like me. But Elegant themes have always been super easy to use.

  3. Awesome. 🙂

  4. Wow!
    This is amazing!!!

    Thanks again Nick, superb work!!!

  5. Just amazing! Really impressed 🙂

  6. I like thissss…

    . This plugin will work with any theme, not just our themes! This plugin is only available for customers who sign up under the Developers Package, however, all of our current customers will get the plugin for free! (even if you are only on the Personal Package)

    • I also have the ultimatumtheme developer’s license and it’s definitely more complex and hard to use.

      • I totally agree! I kept hearing how easy Ultimate Theme was, but I found it anything but easy. Then, too, it appears all the CSS is in-line, which is not my preference. I’d rather have a separate style.css sheet.

        I find it’s much easier to just create a child theme and do the customization that way. Then, I can update the theme if I need to without over-writing my customization styles.

  7. AWSOME! Best buy ever!

  8. Absolutely great stuff, smoothness and flexibility is just like a butter, amazing job of your team ET!!!

  9. hey guys ; )

    i think THIS is a HUGE step to earn customers.. maybe wih your builder Internet will look more attractive for everyone. With a few code modifications and that thing ur acctually totally free to design

    great, really fantastic job


    team of

  10. And here I was waiting for your new theme and this new plugin completely blown away my mind. It’s same feeling when Nokia had launched a 41 MP camera phone. This is completely outstanding! 😀

  11. This is great! I’ll check it out soon for a current project.

  12. Love this! Any way there can be a simple “text” widget that we can just add text to? All I see are the paper and content boxes. I just want to add a column of text.

    Thanks again!

    • Check out the Text Block module.

    • Just kidding… Just saw the text box.

  13. Man… you keep releasing great content! I love it! My only question would be in the area of responsive design… does she work? If not, how do we make it work?

    All in all… superb work!

    • Nevermind. Hadn’t really watched the video yet. This is for pages and posts. The overall CSS will determine if it’s responsive or not. Is there a way to use this to build templates fro within WP?

  14. Excellent job Nick, i was just about to buy a theme builder as well. This is great news for me 🙂 Im a very happy customer

    • Hi Nick

      Is there a way we could build the home page with the plug in?

      • You can always change the homepages of any theme (ET or not).

        Just go to your admin dashboard and go to settings. You can make the homepage a static page. Just choose the page you created.

        • Hi, Matt,

          Great job on the plugin! It works great.

          I’m working on an install of ET’s TheCorporation theme and when I change that setting in Settings>Reading to a static page and save, it doesn’t work … I still have the featured slider on Home.

          I’d appreciate any guidance. Thanks!


          • If you could please open a ticket in our support forums then our team will be able to assist you.

            • Is it also possible to change the backgroundcolor of the box? I have a black background for a site. But iI can’t find any button that changes the framecolor.

          • My bad … I see what I was doing wrong. Thanks!

  15. You guys is just awesome!! Great work

  16. Seriously. Cool.

  17. YAYAYAYAYAYAYAAYAYAYAY!! I’ve been playing with this. I use to use Platform Pro but the looks could only take a non-designer (with high-design) ideals so far. Love the looks of ET configuring certain elements was a cumbersome. I love this drag and drop!

  18. Thanks a lot for this Nick!.
    This makes life so much more fun 🙂

  19. Wow Nick – you always manage to surprise me again. That´s great news, I can´t wait to try this. Great work, keep it coming!

  20. The plugins page says “Get complete access to all of our themes and plugins for only $89”.

    Does this plugin not come with the standard $39 license?

    • Matt,
      You are correct. If you signup today, you will only get the plugin if you choose the Developers option. However, if you are already a customer before this was launched, even with the $39 option, it’s free. Nick mentions this in the post. 🙂

      • I am SOOOO glad I signed up 2 days ago!

        Will this be in effect as long as I am a customer, or next year when I continue my subscription will I need to upgrade to developer to keep the plugins?

  21. So unbelievably excited for this, thank you so much!

  22. This is really amazing! Can’t wait to give it a try. Thank you for another great product!

  23. Great !!!!

    Congratulations for adding so wonderful plugin for content creation and management. Ver, very helpful.


  24. like it a lot… I am a newbie, so everything easy to use is great!

    but… I can’t get it to work if I have text in the normal place (it disappeares when adding blocks in the layout builder)
    Am I doing wrong, or text are supposed to be in textblocks now?

  25. Amazing for sure !

  26. Another great share from ET, you truly are amazing! Thank you.

  27. what a great time to be a website owner 🙂


  28. Sweet! Thanks for letting us old-timers without developer licenses get it too!

  29. I have been a loyal fan because your designs are so good. I have been able to make do with themes that need tweaking via the excellent support. But, this is incredible!. It really proves what a great company you are!

  30. this is amazing, I really like the features of the convertible theme

  31. Wow, this is an awesome tool and potentially a real game-changer. Looking forward to trying it out!

  32. Amazing !

  33. Oh Nick – thankyou, thankyou, thankyou! And the timing couldn’t be better as I was looking at another system with similar functionality – so glad Elegant Themes has this now.

    We can definitely forgive the delay on the release of Lucid for this.
    I cannot wait to play with this tool. Builder plugin, social icons and portable shortcodes – it has been a great month!

    Thanks again.

    • Thanks Sharon, and don’t worry, Lucid is not far away 🙂

  34. Awesome plugin Nick! Cant wait to use it.

  35. incredible! very good!

  36. Great stuff. Question for you: Can you create more builder widget zones that are availabel in the builder widget pulldown menu? I see the default number of widget zones if 5.

    If so, how is that done?

    Thanks. That’s really great you made it available for all themes. Same with the shortcodes.

    • I too have this question. I need 12 different blocks on a page I’m building. Can I have more than 5? Thanks.

  37. This looks great and I will be installing this to my website! One thing that I’d love to see with this is a module for images that do not need to link to post but will enlarge.

    You continue to produce great stuff!!

    • There is a already a module for creating lightbox images 🙂

  38. Wow, this is huge news. Combine this with your awesome themes and you are the best theme creator out there. And I have tried a lot including Catalyst etc. Go guys, keep up the great work

  39. Absolutely amazing plugin! Good work once again 🙂

    One update to the plugin that I’d recommend is that you have a “clear layout” button that clears all modules on the canvas to start again. As once you have dragged and dropped “sample layout” onto the canvas. It takes forever to manually close (and confirm close) every single module and column.

    • Good suggestion, we will add this to the next version.

  40. Thanks so much! This is awesome!!

  41. what a superb addition to a very great theme! congrats/

  42. Wow! This is incredible!

    Just (finally) sold a site developed using one of your themes…and moments ago upgraded to a developer’s license. Thanks, Nick!

  43. Wicked awesome! Thanks guys, looking forward to using this!

  44. Awesome Nick, sure everything will be easier with this plugin 🙂

    • Thanks Lance! Hope all is well at Rituwall HQ.

  45. Can building websites get any more fun???
    Apparently So.

  46. Great tool, nice one!

  47. Excellent stuff… great !

  48. Really a good overall improvement. Keep it up

  49. Taking it to another lever……and user friendly!!! Big win! Nice job Nick/Elegant Themes!!!

  50. Wow, what an amazing tool, Nick. I am looking forward examining this plugin. Keep up the great work!

  51. I have found it very useful and a creation that I use. Thanks

  52. I like elegantthemes because creative ideas. Thank advanced for share!

    • Exactly. thank you for being creative ! . all the very best for new ideas.

  53. Great job! Intuitive and elegant.

  54. YIPPPEEE this is a fabulous develpoment. Best value membership just got even better

  55. The plugin is a great thing, thank you that it is free for members.


  56. Is it possible to restructure/design the home page of a site using this plugin?

    • Yes, if you assign a static page as your homepage and then use the builder to construct that static page.

      • I have a similar question. I was looking at the notebook theme cause i love the multimedia interface, but it has no real header space on top etc in the theme, So if i created a new static page using the pagebuilder plugin within the notebook theme, would i still be able to get that super cool multimedia display? This is the theme i’m referring to.

      • Hi Nick,
        Is it possible to build complete website (dynamic content) with this plugin by using any of themes ? Pl reply !

  57. So you’ve managed effectively to put a whole framework into a plugin … so that we can effectively have drag-and-drop framework capability on any WP theme! How cool is that???? And how generous! Thanks, Nick. Awesome!

    • After see the video, its look great

  58. Very smart design. Fantastic!

  59. Thank you for the awesome Plugin. ET will be ever the first choice!

  60. Hello,

    Just one question: is there an impact on pages or posts loading times when we use your plugin to arrange them Vs when we don’t ?

    • The plugin itself does not add any extra load times. However, just like anything, the more “stuff” you add to your page, the more time it will take to load.

  61. Is there another word for awesome?

    Great stuff Nick and co. Life is now easier.

  62. WOWSER…what an amazing plugin. I’ll be loading it to a site today. I’m kind of a “geekette” and not one with CSS/HTML5, etc. background. I really go nuts trying to putz with that.

    And thank you so much for grandfathering in those who have a regular license (just renewed mine last week).

    • You’re welcome 🙂

  63. I’ve loved using this functionality on the Convertible theme. Thanks for making the functionality available as a Plugin.

  64. Simply awesome, you guys have taken your theme club to a new level. Thank you.

    • It is included in the $89 membership.

  65. Hi, is it possible to drag and drop a search widget into the main text area or in a text box?

    • There are widget ready modules that you can add to the builder and then add widgets to.

  66. Wow …. Drag&Drop feature will give us unlimited design potential. and the best part is it works for any theme.
    Thanks a lot Nik.

  67. This is Awesome. Cant wait to try my hands on this plugin, its time to get a subscription…

  68. You Rock- this looks amazing. I am going to try it our now.
    You give great value for the money.
    Thank You

  69. Nice and awesome plugn..helpful for everyone..

  70. Another beautiful piece of work Nick.
    I let my account lapse, but with Lucid and this plugin I will have to shell out the subs to reactivate. Hope to have a clear patch during the Olympics to rebuild a couple of sites.

    • Glad to have you back!

  71. WOW! Simply awesome! I have been looking forward to something like this for some time now. 🙂

  72. =:-O

    • =P

  73. Awesome!

  74. It awesome stuff by ET……

  75. Awesome plugin guys 😮

  76. Congrats Nick, Supercool plugin! Happy to be a member 🙂

    Just one point – how long till you make this to create responsive layouts?

    • We will be updating our shortcodes and modules to be responsive soon.

      • Wow Nick, now that’s what’s seriously cool about you and team. Yo’ da man!!

      • Is the plugin already responsive?
        And the plugin respects the main theme CSS?

        Thanks, i’m really interested in buying this.

  77. Amazing – does this plugin support portfolio section?

    • There is no “portfolio” module, however, there is a module for creating lightbox images that you could to use to build your own gallery.

  78. I love this however I am not able to use it. It doesn’t play well with any plugin that uses a callback to twitter so the Social Login plugin or even something like Disqus. I use several social plugins and when I activate this it gives me the white screen of death forcing me to remove it via FTP. Just a heads up.

    • Did you try setting up Feedburner? It can post to Twitter just like any plugin, but is not a plugin. Easy to set up.

    • This can’t be used with Disqus??

  79. This is absolutely wonderful. Thank you so much for creating this!!!!!!!

  80. So much fun to use and easy too…
    Yay! elegant image sliders for everyone!

  81. Oh man how sad is it to be late to the party! I am thinking about joining for days, and now this. Is it possible to get the plugin as a stand alone purchase as well?


  83. dude… this is freakin’ amazing!!!

  84. I can’t believe that really exists 🙂

  85. Awesome! That’s exactly what I suggested in the WP 2012 survey! And I got it for free in my personal pack, sweet!
    The only thing is that I didn’t got any email about it, I was just browsing ET site when I found out.


    • You can subscribe to our blog via email for updates. (in the sidebar of the blog)

  86. This plugin is awesome. 🙂

  87. Great! Is this plug-in actually released, or just announced? Am relatively new member (prior to this announcement) and not clear on how to get this. Love the intro video — just not sure how to get it working on my very embryonic site just in the initial stages of being developed. Advice?

    • Hi Linda.. If you are an existing customer who has already purchased Personal or Developer Package you can download it from Member’s Area once you logged in. If you are not an existing customer you have to signup for “Developer Package” which is only $89.. I’m an existing user of Developer package. It’s really a good value for money.. 100% Recommended!!!

  88. This looks awesome!! It says here that it can also be downloaded by members who only have the personal package, which would be me. Can someone advice as to how to download because when I click on members plugin, it says I gotta sign up for membership.

  89. I’m an Elegant themes Personal Package customer. How do I download this plugin?

    • Login to the members area for a list of available downloads.

  90. Awesome news … this plugin is pretty innovating … I’m gonna have to try it!

  91. This is looks very awesome, can’t wait to try it !

  92. Awesome guys…I am sure this is going to be BIG

  93. The proposal is fantastic, but I use Wp e-commerce with a theme ET. When you activate this plugin had trouble using highlighted image (post thumbnail). Is it a bug?

  94. Can one save a page design as a template?

    • That would be awesome… Hmmm i wonder…

  95. Absolutely wonderful! I tested this out today, and it really works well and integrates nicely. Have not yet tried it out on non-ET themes, but I’m sure it’s great.

    Fantastic job guys!

  96. This is SO Cool. I’ll be trying this out this week. :):):)

  97. I was waiting for this for a very long time. Will test and report.

  98. Awesome!!! This is something we have been expecting from you.. And now we can give any page layout using this plugin. One question.. Will this work fine with responsive themes? Specially with mobile devices?

  99. its look awesome,i cant wait to try it,seriously you guys are amazing..thanks for sharing

  100. Nice that you’ve moved the features over from the theme, it’s a sweet plugin

  101. Wow, blogging is made so easy. Is it possible to install this plugin for non-elegant theme?

    • Yes, the plugin can be used with any theme.

  102. Question. Can this plug in be used on the main home page of any of the themes? Or is it just the new pages and posts that are created? THANK YOU FOR SUCH A BEAUTIFUL TOOL!!! 🙂 ♥ I’m shopping around and would love to know the answer before I buy. THANK YOOOU <3

    • It can only be used within the content of a post or page. However, you can assign a static page as your homepage.

      • Nick, may i point you to this phrase in the post:

        This plugin will work with any theme, not just our themes! This plugin is only available for customers who sign up under the Developers Package, however, all of our current customers will get the plugin for free! (even if you are only on the Personal Package)

  103. “Post Authors” (the bio of the author after the post), dissapeares when using this builder plugin… bug?

    • Please open a thread in our forums so that we can assist you with any problems you are experiencing.

  104. Hi just to let you know this plug ins causes conflicts with easy digital downloads plug ins.

  105. excelent, that is what i really need!, Thank to God 🙂

  106. this is what i waiting for of thousand years 😀

  107. This is just too good to be true! Great Job, Guys!!!

  108. This looks a great plug in and I cant wait to use it! Thanks for all your work Nick an team.

  109. Wonderfull! Wonderfull! Wonderfull!

  110. Just what I need, thank you guys for another job well done!

  111. Awesome plugin!

    Nice addition with a bit more functionality than standard theme shortcodes.


  112. Can’t wait to actually try this out. I keep a test site open to test just such things and this looks fabulous! Can’t thank you enough.

    Love all your stuff! Keep ’em coming.


  113. Is this still available without a charge if I sign up as a member now and purchase the 75 themes?

    • Our plugins are only available via the Developer subscription for new members.

  114. Would be great to use this plugin with Bootstrap styles.

  115. We just downloaded and played around with this plugin. It’s simply amazing – period. Great job ElegantThemes!

  116. Excellent stuff… great job !

  117. Dear Elegant Themes,

    I’ve only been using you for about a month or so, but I’m never going to let you go! You guys are amazing, I can’t thank you and your team enough. Website building was treacherous before Elegant Themes showed me the light!


  118. i am so new to all of this… anything to make things simpler is appreciated!

  119. Why is this not downloadable off your website if im a paid member? When i go to the plug in and click download it is grayed out…and can’t download it. How do i get this plug-in?

    • Plugins are only available for customers on the Developer subscription.

  120. What a Great job! I love it.

  121. Great plugin – a phantastic sollution with just one negative point: no saving for my own layouts possible to use it with a previously built website. When will it be availlable ? (Any date ?) Asked in the support forum but got only the answer “with the next update” – sorry that`s not very helpful. Many others request this feature, too.

  122. Great idea.

    But unfortunately it has a know bug of breaking the layout of the radio buttons on the home page Featured Slider. Rendering the plugin unusable.

    With this in mind can you please work on an update.


  123. I agree, it’s a fantastic plugin, but it seems incompatible with Custom Post Types.

    Not only does it not seem to work, but it seems to freeze the main menu when viewing Custom Post Type. Also, when you’re on the Custom Post Type screen, the contextual help menu is frozen.

    i tried disabling all plugins and using the stock wordpress theme, and still had this problem.

    Please keep me posted when you have a fix in place for Custom Post Types, thank you.

  124. After signing in to the members area i continue to the Plugin section but i don;t get the DOWNLOAD link/button.
    How to get there???

  125. This really is a fantastic tool, Nick.

    Keep up your awesome work… please!

  126. A-Maze-ing!

  127. Want to know from developers who have used it so far. Will I be able to build up a complete website from ground zero by using this plugin with any theme – of ET or others ? Or do I need something in addition to this. I hope to get a unambiguous answer. Thanks in advance !

  128. Wow. What an incredible plug-in. That is exactly what non-techies need. That may be the best thing to happen to WordPress since WordPress. Thanks Nick Great Job

  129. Hi I have a “personal membership” but i can’t download this plugin. Where can i find it and download it. There is no button or anything likewise for download.

    I want to point out:

    Quote: This plugin is only available for customers who sign up under the Developers Package, however, all of our current customers will get the plugin for free! (even if you are only on the Personal Package)

  130. I cannot get wp-commerce to work correctly with this plug in, can anyone be of assistance. If I activate the builder, my shop page disappears, and vice versa if I turn off. Please help, or advise a better cart to use.

    • If you need help, please open a thread in our support forums and we will assist you.

  131. Really awesome work with this plugin. Big thx for this.

  132. Nice and Great Plugin. That makes me shocked, this plugin is like a bonus from elegant themes for their loyal customers. We waiting for another shock.

  133. It’s nice Plugin. Good work.

  134. Awesome… but Can we also build database tables with drag and drop?

  135. Looks awesome!

    I just wonder: Does it completely overwrite the post/page content or can I have a module to insert the default content on a page.
    Of course I can copy paste it or just leave the post itself empty, but this is not that intuitive. I’d prefer a module like “content” where the normal content gets.

  136. You cannot download this plugin with the personal package, you have to pay the $89 to have it…

  137. Is there an issue with using it with the Business Card theme? I cannot get it to work.

    • If you need help, please open a thread in our support forums so that our tech support team can assist you. All themes are working as intended once configured correctly.

  138. Just learning WP, looking at all kinds of options from DW integration to Artisteer to various frameworks in order to provide layout flexibility… yours is the best I have found so far. Wow.

  139. Hi – I’ve been searching for a tool to make wordpress seem appealing to me as i’m really into the design side of blogging but just cant seem to mange to get anything good to come out of it so far. Will this plugin work with any theme? or only through your own designs?

  140. I think an important module is missing: Instead of static content, a module is needed that can show contents from actual wordpress posts. It should be easy to create such module that fetches posts and shows them if they’re in selected category.

  141. Actually works quite nicely. Any chance you’ll be figuring out how to get a “save” feature for the templates we design. Thanks.

  142. I know the website states that “This plugin is only available for customers who sign up under the Developers Package, however, all of our current customers will get the plugin for free! (even if you are only on the Personal Package)”. Like others, I cant find the download info.

  143. Hi,

    Why not add a thumbnail (image or text), so it is easier to find the right module when there is many of them.
    It might also be a good idea to have slightly different colors on the modules for different catagories, so it is easier to find and choose.

  144. Great ! Elegant Theme Builder is very helpful and easy to use

  145. “This plugin is only available for customers who sign up under the Developers Package, however, all of our current customers will get the plugin for free! (even if you are only on the Personal Package)

    I’m a current customer (since June 2012). Where can I download please?

  146. Nice job.drag&drop is easy to use,even for someone konws nothing about coding.keep em going.I

  147. hi. i want show “(et_page_builder_original_width=100%)”

  148. Great, I just bought the Developers Upgrade to use this and now I am very excited to try this out!

  150. Thanks for this report, this is so useful thanks a lot man!

  151. Wow! Precious!
    I was hesitant about going for the Full Plugins option — now I’m really bending over the fence!

  152. I see that when this came out last year there was talk of updating these plugins to make them responsive. Has that happened yet? Thanks.

  153. Great! Thanks for such a great plugin.

  154. Hallo, Thanks for this a great plugin, Greetings from Germany

      • Hi Nick,
        What “change” are you referring to, and when did the offer expire? Thank you.

  156. Great, but I think there is a bug when WP_SITE_URL OR WP_CONTENT_DIR is redefined.

    Using the latest WP 3.8, and latest version of this plugin, with no other plugins installed, on an internal testing website, it appears the plugin (as well as the Anticipate plugin) is not retrieving its internal CSS/JS correctly.

    My wp-config.php is in the parent directory, *above* WP; in it I specify that WP is inside a wordpress subdir, and that the plugins are inside wp-content/plugins. This is a common, documented configuration for people who want to maintain WP and plugins separately:
    define(‘WP_HOME’, ‘http://’ . $_SERVER[‘SERVER_NAME’]);
    define(‘WP_SITEURL’, ‘http://’ . $_SERVER[‘SERVER_NAME’] . ‘/wordpress’);
    define(‘WP_CONTENT_DIR’, $_SERVER[‘DOCUMENT_ROOT’] . ‘/wp-content’);
    define(‘WP_CONTENT_URL’, ‘http://’ . $_SERVER[‘SERVER_NAME’] . ‘/wp-content’);

    This seems to work fine with themes such as Divi, but not with the elegantbuilder plugin (or the Anticipate plugin). When I look at the page source, I see, for example:

    but it should be:

    It seems the full path to the plugin CSS (starting with Volumes/users/barre/ etc.) is appended to the URL path.

    • Hmmm, seems the HTML I used above was stripped. What I was saying is, when I look at the page source, I see:

      link rel=’stylesheet’ id=’et_lb_admin_css-css’ href=’http://killy.wp_testing/wp-content/plugins/Volumes/Users/barre/Web/′ type=’text/css’ media=’all’

      but it should be:

      link rel=’stylesheet’ id=’et_lb_admin_css-css’ href=’http://killy.wp_testing/wp-content/plugins/elegantbuilder/css/et_lb_admin.css?ver=2.3′ type=’text/css’ media=’all’

  157. So Great! Thanks for such a great plugin. I’m sign up now

  158. Manually installed and then activated EB. When I go to New Post, I don’t see the module. All I see is a text list of what should be the buttons.
    At the bottom is a broken image that has saving…. next to it.
    Anybody know what’s up?

    • Please ignore my previous comment

  159. You guys have done very well, thank you so much! I love just about every theme in this WP package.

  160. Really nice WP Package. Had made the structuring and layout of pages so much simpler and faster. Great work.

  161. Hi, I have a doubt.

    How do I use the “blog module setting” inside the “elegant themes builder”? Is that possible? I can’t find an option to insert my blog posts using the layout builder, instead, I have to use the basic builder.

    Thank you!

  162. hi there

    How do you add text over an image and position the text to where you want it ?


  163. I love your themes and all the superb futures in them. You are pushing wordpress to the new levels. Thanks and keep it up!

  164. I work witth the builder and it is awsome but a few weeks ago the rich Editor disappered and now it is really hard to Change or add text. What is wrong? THANKS!!!

  165. Page Builder in Divi2

    This would be for sure also a very nice enhancement of the builder, I don’t specificaly wan’t to hide the builder modules from users, but much more have control of who shall insert new columns sections, modules and rows.

    But not restricting users to change content, image, video, sound inside a certain builder module/ fixed section. (so that the layout is not modified and messed up)

    Its really a problem when a not experienced user is able to modify layout, sot that everything is messed up after save layout 🙁

    When can we count with such a important enhancement like this?

  166. Well done 🙂 Nice to see that the online community – pushing for innovative ways to build sites in amongst Visual Composer and the like. Keep it up!

  167. Can i use 4 col for desktop and 1 col for mobile?

  168. On big problem with this plugin. When you build your page with Elegant Builder plugin, the content is not searchable. How can we fix that ?

  169. I’m looking forward to Divi 2.5!

    While Divi has been very flexible in terms of creating a custom layout, I struggle a lot with customizing the css. And then usually once it looks good on the computer, it has a negative effect on the responsive view. Divi Support has been great – they are patient, kind and helpful, but I spend way to much time trying to get the code right to do something I could do in seconds on a program for print design.

    What I really would like to see a is Divi Maintenance / Development Service that would provide site maintenance for a monthly or yearly fee. I know you had a post on the Elegant Themes Blog a while ago that mentioned several large companies that do that, but I would feel soooooo much better my passing websites over to someone who’s Divi /Elegant Themes savvy. I don’t want to worry about the site after creation, unless it’s a design request, but at the same time, I don’t want to let my long-standing clients down. I want to go back to being a graphic/ creative designer again and have someone else handle the css / php development & maintenance for the entire site.

    Are you considering offering a service like this, or could you post a list of Divi Support persons that might want to provide this independently as a third party? This would be the greatest stress reliever of all time!

  170. Is the plug-in always compatible with WordPress 4.3.1?
    For my site I have no access to the content of the boxes.

  171. I’m using Divi on a lot of the websites I develop these days. I like it a lot. But when I run w3c markup validator, I see the following:

    ERROR: Element style not allowed as child of element body in this context.
    From line 503, column 2; to line 503, column 55
    ner –>↩↩ ↩ ↩

    Has anyone else seen this? are the creators of Divi planning to fix this?

  172. Although this feature is a bit dated and there are better ones out there. Im still using this feature for some websites, just because its so simple to use.

    As always elegant themes delivers. 🙂

    • This plugin still works, but I would not recommend it when you could be using the Divi Builder Plugin.
