Divi 2.4 Will Be The Biggest Update In Divi History, And We Are Calling For Your Suggestions!
Blog / Theme Sneak Peeks / Divi 2.4 Will Be The Biggest Update In Divi History, And We Are Calling For Your Suggestions!

Last month we gave you a Sneak Peek of our upcoming Divi 2.4 release. In that post we hinted at some of the huge features we are working on for Divi 2.4, including the all new Divi Library and Advanced Module Design settings. In fact, Divi 2.4 (despite what its version number might suggest) is turning into the single biggest Divi update we have ever made!

One thing we neglected to mention in our last post is that, in addition to big improvements to the Divi Builder, we are also loading the WordPress Customizer with a ton of new options. These options are going to give you a whole new level of control over your website. We have already integrated some pretty impressive stuff, and we are just warming up! Take a glimpse below at just a few of the new options you can expect in version 2.4 😉

Comp%201

We aren’t stopping there (not even close), and before we do, we want to make sure that we have thought of absolutely everything. That’s why we are looking to the Elegant Themes community for suggestions. We want to know what kinds of tools you are dying to have. What customizer options would be useful to you? What can we do to save you time when starting your next Divi build? Just to clarify, we are looking for ideas related to WordPress Theme Customizer settings, which are design-focused settings that affect your entire site (such as the options showcased above). The more great ideas we receive, the more amazing controls we can add.

So please drop your suggestions in the comments and help us help you. We can’t wait to hear all the great things you come up with, and most of all we can’t wait to get back to work on Divi 2.4. I hope you are as excited as we are!

  1. First of all, you have done a GREAT job with the new Divi!

    A couple suggestions. It would be helpful if you add the ability have tools for border creation when using things like columns with text module. Working with the specialty sections, you can easily add borders to a sidebar (using the module css) as well as the single full page text module (using css), but when you get into doing things like the 1/2 1/2 or 1/3 1/3 1/3, etc. The only way you can add a collumn border is in the main css doing something like: .page-id-651 .et_pb_row_4col
    .et_pb_column.et_pb_column_1_4.et_pb_column_9 {
    border: 5px solid #cc9248;
    }, etc.

    It would be soooo helpful if you could incorporate this as we would be able to save borders in our new libraries.

    Also, it would be nice to be able to make custom columns where you specify the dimensions you would like,

    Thanks.

  2. – Easily switch to classic mode so you can copy/paste/edit the shortcode. Currently you need to switch to another theme to obtain the shortcode…it would be great if you could just switch to classic mode and be able to view the shortcodes.

  3. Hi,

    Filmmaker/creative user here. I use divi for my website.

    – Needs a video portfolio option in the grid format. Ideally, it would be great if you could click on the thumbnail and the video will maximise and play instead of redirecting you to a different page.

    – More main menu styles

    – Ability to upload larger files onto wordpress for video bg. Currently I use a plug-in to do that or I go directly into the server to upload video files.

  4. Can´t wait for this update…

    But my understanding is that Divi Theme is falling behind the competition in diferent ways, specially Theme X and Salient.

    I really love Divi, but the limitations are still important.

    Waiting for Sidebar Costumization – size, fonts, colors;

    Waiting for Divi Builder on Posts!

    Waiting for more Slider variety!

    Waiting for MEGA MENU!

    Waiting for Icon Library (Where Divi users can share personal icons).

    Waiting for Child Theme Library (Where Divi users can share their child themes).

    Guys, we really want your theme to be the best…but you need to catch up…

    Sorry for this post and the bad English…

  5. I was about to start re doing my site with Divi. Think I’ll wait for the 2.4 release by the looks of the added features.

  6. Any countdown available ?

  7. ok I have been struggling with my website, it isnt that I cannot adjust what I want to (when i finally figure it out) but I can never get it the way that I want it. there is always something that I just cant do. So maybe I need to change the way I think about the theme lol? who knows?

    Anyways

    What I would like to see, which can really be the solution to just about any request that you get on here. It may be too much to ask but when I use the chrome browser and I “right click” on an object on my website, I get the option to inspect an element. I know this isnt a mystery but one thing different about the chromo browser is that when you start typing in the little box on the right where you can add and subtract lines of css, it trys to auto correct. For example if I type “-” a dash symbol it is going to give me a giant list of all the “-web-kit” boxes, borders, ends and starts.

    Now when you asked this from the community I sort of thought that it would be a good idea to just add a function in every section and every module, a drop down type of feature with every css component possible with its corresponding toggle or what ever you want to adjust each setting.

    Even if that is hard to do, isn’t it worth it? you have a ton of people following DIVI, no matter what you add, its going to sell and people will still continue using the theme. but by taking single requests by adding overlay to this module and a slider function to that you will not please everyone – and of course add all those things that people want but for advanced users (yet not advanced enough to start writing css) they REALLY have full control.

    This way no one will have to ever buy another theme except for divi because it does anything in its class could ever do.

  8. Is there any way to get my hands on the beta version of 2.4 now or are the gates closed if you were not selected by ET earlier? Are they still handing out test version or is the handout closed for good?

  9. so exciting! i cant wait anymore Nick!

  10. I implement a lot of sites with S2Member or other membership plugins. As such it would be extraordinarily helpful if I could display a Divi Section, Divi module with shortcode or PHP.

    That way, I could display/hide certain code blocks based on conditionals in the membership plugin.

  11. I would REALLY like two things. I have a great developer and I code too but these two things are a pain on every site we do with Divi.

    1.) Please allow for a background image on a section to have a transparent color overlay (this means I don’t have to build the dark or light transparency into every background image i upload.) It would be simply taking the background color we set and allowing it to be put OVER the image background we chose. THEN an opacity field (%) so we can say we want the background FULLY opaque or maybe 50% opaque over the background image. This would make me IMMENSELY HAPPY 🙂 and would save HOURS of time.

    2.) Please let the image gallery be FLUSH together just like the portfolio full width gallery. No padding. All images touching on edges. Also a masonry image gallery mode would be awesome too!!

    We do really well doing custom CSS on our child theme. Better that way. We even have a means to override your font awesome icon in the buttons via data attribute and a css tweak. We’re excited to use this to make dynamic buttons on the fly. Tested and works!

  12. Put the option to add the logo image on the WordPress Customizer and not on the ePanel. 🙂

    • Yes! In fact, how about getting rid of the ePanel altogether? It seems totally out of character.

      Also, please add some menu customisation options including a menu that spans the full width (no wrapping on full size screens for long menus). Not sure whether this is possible with WP but vector logos would also be great. Experiencing artefacts and distortion on png logos. Failing that, control the exact location of the logo in the menu (so text menu items can be aligned to the center of the logo in horizontal mode).

      On full width sections, allow text modules or add a way to insert thrid-party sliders instead of having to define a column with a text module to drop in a shortcode.

      Add an easy way to enforce zero padding between sections so that no blank gaps appear between sections. Custom CSS code works on Divi sections but not when you introduce thrid-party components (such as a slider). Zero padding CSS custom code reduces the size of blank gaps but does not eliminate them although padding is set to zero.

      Slider. Layer animation and precise text placement and styling. Same for images (free placement, not just left or right with custom code). Would happily use thrid-party slider but see padding issue above.

  13. Not sure if this has ever come up. It’s a pretty basic thing, but it always bothers me when switching between Visual/Text view in the editor within a Divi module, you lose all line breaks. All the text will turn into one giant block and you lose the line breaks. This doesn’t happen in the WordPress editor, but it does happen when you’re using the editor within a Divi module.

    • Hi Ryan,

      I found a plugin a few years ago that I tried on one project, and it worked.

      However, since then I decided just to leave the ‘view’ in Visual all the time.

      This is an older plugin so it may not work well with the updated WordPress.

      https://wordpress.org/plugins/preserved-html-editor-markup/

      Let us know if it still works.

      Dean

  14. Not sure if this has ever come up. It’s a pretty basic thing, but it always bothers me when switching between Visual/Text view in the editor within a Divi module, you lose all line breaks. All the text will turn into one giant block and you lose the line breaks. This doesn’t happen in the WordPress editor, but it does happen when you’re using the editor within a Divi module.

  15. My suggestion – make it so that layouts also import all the media.

    Being able to import the layouts is great, but without the ability to also import all the media that goes along with those layouts still leaves a lot of work ahead even after the layouts are imported.

    This would be a HUGE improvement and one that is sorely needed for anyone doing multiple sites (especially for clients).

  16. I’d really love to be able to choose specific shop products for specific posts, so in your page builder shop module, being able to choose the actual products rather than the recent, featured, sale, bests selling or top rated. For instance having an article with a mood board and being able to have a list of the specific products underneath with the add to cart buttons.

  17. Hi. Responsible tables. Now Divi is responsibe but any used doesn’t. It will be great if you fix it.

  18. ok last one..

    Linkable Map pins

  19. Boxed navigation with active status would be a nice thing.. well more nav element control in general..

    Revolution slider…

  20. Auto-Start (with speed control) Slide galleries would be nice thing to have..

  21. I’d like to see a gallery option that has a main photo area and then thumbnails at the bottom, which, when selected, would make that photo featured in the main area.

    Site wide suggestion: Make the Z-index of the header changeable

  22. I would absolutely LOVE to see in the update Divi an option for a photo gallery slider like this one:

    http://www.erikaealvarenga.com/women

    I’m a photographer and I need to showcase my photos on top of the page with a slider like this.

  23. A Hello Bar style notification bar that floats at the top or bottom of the screen when users scroll down would be an amazing feature.

    I’ve tried a lot of different notification bars with Divi and none work very well/if at all!

  24. I was about to start re doing my site with Divi. Think I’ll wait for the 2.4 release by the looks of the added features.

  25. Greatly second the comments above, especially CODE MODULE.
    1. Mobile friendly – adding clickable phone numbers in headers, for buttons, top nav, etc. Right now the map module is basically just an image. Huge issues with slider images.

    2. A real contact form that can be configured and fields added. I also want to see an exportable list of replies.

    3. Commenting the CSS file by module name would save me so much time. (cut down support threads too)

    4. Option of titling modules, like a video or gallery

    We loved theme initially but struggled with the inflexibility of the page builder and blank page option. Thrilled to see it’s being addressed

  26. I have no idea if this has been posted before, but I would like to be able to present the user with options to filter posts in the Blog Module. The user should be able to select categories (for instance similar to how the Project module works).

    Also, I would like the option to star Posts (or custom types) so that they appear in a Slider.

  27. I’ve used this theme A LOT. Keep up the good work. One thing that just struck me that would give me much more flexibility … Support for icon frameworks like Font Awesome and Ion.

    Sure, you can use them. But, specifically, I mean making it easy to add them to blurbs, etc.

  28. I just bought Divi last week and haven’t installed it yet, so forgive me if this options is available already, but it was something I noticed from the Demo that I wish was there.

    On the blog page, it would be nice to add a “continue reading” at the bottom of each post excerpt. Not in a big ugly button, but in a stylish, but clear way.

  29. I love Divi. I hope I’m not too late for some sugestions.

    1. Make Divi integrated with the best CSS frameworks like:
    – materializecss.com – created and designed by Google
    – bootstrap
    – foundation
    – purecss
    See how this was implemented https://press.codes/

    2. Improve Customizer – see http://kirki.org/
    3. View changes instantly – see http://www.layerswp.com/

    • Wow ! Layers is impressive of flexibility.
      Really like the way of “say where you want it” and “not “place it it where you want” which is the common approach for front-end builder.
      Thanks for this input.

      The Divi Builder will now have to fight hard…

  30. please add ability for linkedin social link in divi’s epanel (Appearance>Divi Theme Options).

    looking forward to the new release! elegant themes rocks!

  31. I love divi but I’m missing cool Full Screen Sliders.
    Like other themes you should have some build in solutions.
    Having a full screen slider should be easier … 🙂

    • … or allow 3rd party slider plugins to be fullscreen. 🙂

  32. This is very exciting! I hope I’m not too late to the party.

    I would love to be able to adjust the width of the site itself. This would make my day!

  33. A dedicated module for Tags / Categories Layout Options :

    — Place left, right, up, down in a page or post header, or sticky in sidebar.

    — Customize : font, colour, background colour, shape, style (flat, outline…).

    — Breadcrumb style enable/disable.

    And also :

    A dedicated module for Sort and Display Posts Options :

    — Pull posts in another page by selected tags and/or categories

    — Display pulled posts in different lists style (thumb + excerpt + button)

    — Filter pulled posts by date, selected tags and/or categories

    All in the same efficient and elegant work you guys did for Monarch.

    Thanks and Best.

  34. Hi awesome work, my suggestions:

    – more header styles
    – more features form module
    – slider with static image and text slides
    – slider with more animation options and transitions
    – more icons
    – custom icon for points of map module
    – module logo slider
    – module slider testimonials

  35. Hi!

    Please add the feature to link to a specific menu tab.
    Imagine I’m using an accordion menu in a certain webpage and I need to refer a specific tab (appearing open when accessed).

    something like http://www.website.com/how-to/#step5

    That’s my tip!

  36. Is there an option to add other plugin slider / short code for slider in full width ?

  37. Just found my notes and sure enough I have one suggestion to add: if you could make Lightbox available for all image embeds and not just the image/gallery modules, that would be fantastic! Thanks so much for this wonderful theme, guys. I get lots of compliments on the sites I’ve built with Divi. I really appreciate the work you’ve put into it, and your willingness to take a boatload of suggestions from users. Good luck with the update!

  38. There is an ocean of suggestions and requests here – so I can only hope this will be seen n__n

    Here’s what I suggest as a really useful yet small addition:
    ————–
    In the ‘eCommerce Module’ (with Woocommerce) please let us choose categories from the “Type” selector. This way you could have a shop module only display products from a specific manufacturer, or products of a specific type.

    For example: by using a specific catagory, depending on what your site sells with Woocommerce, you could display only cars from Audi or Infiniti, only Shoes, only Shoes from Adidas, only E-Liquid from Cuttwood.. so on and so forth.

    Currently the ‘Type’ dropdown only lets you select Newest, Most Popular, Featured, Sale and so on.

    If this simple functionality was added I would be ECSTATIC! It would truly open up a world of options for using the shop module in new and creative locations.

    And here’s a HUGE thank you for asking what we want to see happen in 2.4 😀

  39. More effect options in the sliders would be enjoyable.

  40. Hi!

    Thanks for the great work.

    What about an “attaching files” option to the contact module?

    Would it be too much work maybe?

  41. A fullscreen slider that is responsive. Yes.. Fullscreen meaning full width AND full height on any device. Similar to Salient’s one-page slider.

    If you’re switching to percentages, please make the transition easy on child themes.

    thanks

  42. As a business owner who loves the beauty and simplicity of Divi, I would love to see a focus in Divi 2.4 towards greater INTEGRATION with software that supports business owners, marketers, and online product developers.

    A lot of my friends are now moving to WordPress for LMS solutions (like Woo Sensei) for their online content (and of course, WooCommerce).

    Please add template integration and support for Woo Sensei.

  43. There are a TON of suggestions here. I didn’t have the time + patience to read through all of them so I apolagize if this suggestion has come up in a previous comment. I know it has been menitoned on other ET posts, but I think it could be integrated into the WordPress Theme Customizer

    The suggestion: An option for a waypoint header (See http://brewlife.com/)

    This is an awesome way to really make the first section of your website stand out and ease into the rest of your website gracefully. It’s especially effective for one page websites.

    Divi already uses a bunch of waypoints, but customizing something like this can be kind of troublesome because of everything involved. It would be amazing to have this built into the theme.

    Thoughts? Is this something I can look forward to? Or should I just try to hack it myself?

  44. Hi there

    DIVI is amazing, has transformed our festival website offer. The updates you are planning are spot on, here’s a few you may already have but just in case:

    Enable more text to be added to CTA button
    Enable folders in media gallery
    Allow CTA buttons to be put anywhere on the slider page not just centre
    Ability to save modules and sections in the same way as whole layouts
    Ability to easily adjust padding to get rid of white space
    Upload our icons to be used anywhere and resized
    resolve credit text on images in sliders and gallery
    take 0 off two figure days in number counter (e.g. 029)
    unlimited text colours
    Abilty to combine images in slider
    Add fields to contact form

    Thanks, keep up the good work!
    Stix

  45. Can you please suggest a release date.

    I am waiting for a month and half to start a new project using Divi 2.4 .

    An approx time frame will be good.

    • A month and a half you have been waiting? some of us have been waiting way more than that. A month ago Nick said “about a month” to release this update… it has been longer that that…

    • Just read somewhere

      comment from Nick Roach of Elegant Themes over on the Divi Facebook group page:

      – “All signs point towards June 10th for Divi 2.4. But like I always say, I only give ETA’s (big emphasis on “estimated”). Less than a month after 2.4 we will be releasing the Divi Builder Plugin, and Extra comes after that. Then we can reveal our big plans for Divi 3.0″

    • Super! Thanks!

  46. Another request : Is it possible to put a youtube video link in full background video ?

  47. Lot of great suggestions here! I have one simple request:

    A toggle switch on each module setting that was simply this:

    Hide module on mobile devices? YES/NO
    Hide module on desktop devices? YES/NO

    I know there’s code for it, because I implemented it on my own sites, but a non-hack way to do it would be GREAT! Thanks a bunch.

  48. Post a release date, please.

    You must be close enough now to have a realistic idea of when this will ship. A lot of us have been waiting a long time to start projects with the new version of Divi. Keeping us in the dark is not cute, and it’s not a fun surprise.

    How many days away do you think we are from Divi 2.4?
    How soon after that can we expect Extra?

    • Yes please, post an update…. We need to know the release date…

      Thanks

      • Nick Roach’s post in FB Divi Theme Users group:

        “All signs point towards June 10th for Divi 2.4. But like I always say, I only give ETA’s (big emphasis on “estimated”). Less than a month after 2.4 we will be releasing the Divi Builder Plugin, and Extra comes after that. Then we can reveal our big plans for Divi 3.0″.

        Nick, thanks for the FB update, now we can adjust our plans accordingly!

    • Yes please, post an update…. We need to know the release date…

      Thanks

    • frustrating…

  49. Any news on Divi 2.4? Have projects on hold until the update

  50. Today it’s the BIG day????

  51. I think today is THE day…

  52. Maybe you could start a user rating system for all the great suggestions to weight the importance?

  53. I think that there is no pagination

  54. Divi is awesome guys! So many great features.

    One thing I thought would be nice, is a better way to edit the footer links area. I have a seen this excited very well in a few other themes.

    Regards,

    Dallin

  55. Hello
    a) What about a timeline modul? For articles aso.?

    b) I also saw a scrolling image from left to right/right to left, top to down, across the full page width for horizontal…
    Also innovative.
    Maybe you can implement something like this in future versions?
    thnx
    regards

  56. I really don´t miss much at all. The only thing I miss, is the release date of the new version.

    Oh – I almost forgot: it would be really great if it was easy to adjust the font size of the text in every single module that we can put text into. That would make Divi-life easier. Actually: I wouldn´t need to use any child theme with this option in the theme.

  57. I suggested earlier that I would love to have Divi be mostly code free similar to adobe muse, but a polling widget and the ability to integrate a vbulletin forum and/or a built in forum would be awesome too.

  58. Please make it easier to reduce the vertical spacing between each module. Right now there is way too much spacing and I end up having to do a lot of CSS for each module to get it right, and it often messes up my mobile version. Also, the divider module doesn’t seem to work unless there’s something in the same row as it… or at least I’ve had trouble getting it to work.

    • All padding and margins will soon be customizable 🙂

      • Nick, do you have a release date? thanks.

    • Also, is it possible to incorporate some sort of easy back-up tool? Backing up a wordpress site can be really complicated and it’s hard to find the right plug-in that works. If you could make it part of the theme, maybe paired with the saved layout options, that’d be great. Or at least maybe have some tutorials on how to do this specifically for elegant theme sites. Thanks

  59. Oh yeah, not sure if it was said but the ability to hide the navigation Menu bar on a page (basically creating a splash page).

  60. I think Divi is the best flexible theme for wordpress that I know of.

    And been looking forward to the new Divi and Extra as well. I am pretty sure I am not the only one in this regard.

    I feel that the anticipation for a new Divi update or the Extra theme – ateast in my experience feels like the excitement surrounding a new OS release or a new phone or game…and not knowing the exact date of the release even makes the anticipation even greater…

    Thus, I feel with regard to the future of elegent themes as articulated in a previous blog post:

    http://www.elegantthemes.com/blog/general-news/the-silent-progress-of-extra-the-evolution-of-divi-and-a-glimpse-into-the-future-of-elegant-themes

    That you guys might consider doing something akin to a live-streamed keynote and do a grand revel every year. That will certainly be a very interesting thing to add to my calendar of great things to expect for the year.

    Best of luck on releasing Divi 2.4 and the future front-end dev enabled Divi 3.0 and Extra as well.

    And I bet you have heard this a billion times but as an amatuer web designer who totally depends only on Elegent themes…please hasten the new release of these great things that we all have been anticipating for so long so that we can start on various projects that we have pegged to start by using the new and awesome features released with both projects…

    Sorry for the long post but Keep on Going Man.

  61. I think nobody suggested this yet.
    Option to show page title on page builder and blog page(archive)

  62. – I would love to see the fluid slider feature for the “divider” module. A lot of times, the fixed ratio of the divider is inadequate for the intended use and we have to dig into the CSS to achieve the results, etc.

    ** Also, I would love to see a “cookie enabled” splash page option so that after a new user visits the site for the first time and sees the video/splash page, they won’t be bothered with it again.

    Thanks!

    • I second these!

  63. A more advanced pricing table with an option for showing discounts, and with more buttons at the bottom for different membership periods (for example) would be great.

  64. Regarding the Divi Builder, do you plan to “categorize” its many modules at some point in the future?

    With over 33 modules and counting, I imagine it could be beneficial to arrange them within the builder by categories of some kind so the desired modules are more easily accessed (as opposed to scrolling through a list).

    Perhaps implement something like an accordion system for different categories within the builder, or at least a filter of some kind to quickly sort through and display the functionality one wants to implement.

    For example, there could be a “Media” category that will then only display modules that have to do with images, music, videos, etc., and hide all unrelated ones.

    Thanks for considering this!

    • I would suggest to stop asking to add new features. The release is late as it is and I would rather work with something NEW right now than probably wait at least 2 more months before this update gets released.

  65. PS – ANd I’d rather have all these new functions work exceptionally than have a new release prematurely!

  66. NICK – I hope you are harvesting ALL of these amazing, skillful, insightful suggestions and making them part of DIVI! Thanks

  67. I was under the impression that this new version will be released in a month. Which it is today… since we all went crazy with new features request does that mean that we set ourselves from getting to see something new today? 🙁

    • The magazine theme Extra 2.1 comes out tomorrow and
      Divi 4.12 comes out Sunday!
      Success!

      JK… Don’t hold your breath!

      Elegant Themes is famous for Over Promising and Under Delivering or OPUD or you might say they are Famous for it. They do not understand their customers or how the industry works. Maybe they should brush up on their Steve Jobs, Bill Gates and Google keynotes. Those guys actually use a technique called UPOD = Under Promise and Over Deliver. Meaning they give you a date and the beat it or meet it.

      You might want to download the Divi Booster plugin until ET decides to actually treat their subscribers with respect. At least it will fix the 100 or so major issues with the most hyped theme on the market, Divi.

      Have you checked out Themify.me they just released a solid and flexible wordpress theme called Ultra and has no issues, with great support with no attitude. A lot less buggy, a lot more WORKING features and a front end editor.

      You’ll just get ignored by ET and they don’t have much compassion for any of their clients. Otherwise they would not promise the impossible. Very disappointing, I am the first person to jump on the band wagon of any new growing and positive company, and after being lied to just so I would renew my subscription for another year sucks. At this point I would describe their mission as crooked, dishonest, like a car salesman.

      Be a leader and apologize to your customers Mr. Roach, instead of brushing it off like it’s no big deal. Guess what, it’s a big deal to all of us small web design business owners.

      Sincerely,
      Used, Abused and Lied to ET Customer

  68. Since the request is for suggestions “related to WordPress Theme Customizer settings” I am going to stick to that topic. If there is an opportunity in the future to offer suggestions for modules or other improvements I will gladly post again.

    1) A setting to control the width and other aspects of individual pages (color scheme, header and footer customization, etc.). As it stands it is not possible to insert things like a row of images and blurbs that would span the entire width of the page. I would like to be able to create the kind of metro look that is possible using bootstrap or place a row of images across the page that has no spacing like the projects module allows.

    2) Logo as text, so the text can be styled, which would allow it to change automatically when the color scheme is changed. I have this option on another WordPress site and think it is a good feature.

    3) Create an option for the social icons, contact information, etc. to be added to the header and footer as html. The current options are not very good, as they create line breaks in mobile view so you end up with 2-3 rows. This is just too much wasted space in mobile view considering I could use css to eliminate some elements from displaying and have only one row at the top. This also eliminates the need to update footer.php each time the theme is updated.

    4) The ability to define and save a new color scheme by entering at a minimum the primary color to be used. If the full set of color options could be defined and saved as a new color scheme, that would be even better.

    5) Expanding on #4, it would be even more awesome if the entire list of customization’s made using the WordPress customizer could be saved and imported/exported. This along with the current ability to save layouts would make creating unique new sites so much easier.

    Thank you for requesting our input, and the great work you guys and gals are doing, both are sincerely appreciated!

    • Just added it today 🙂 In fact, we create a whole new module just for post headers!

      • awesome. that seems to be very in right now with the Medium explosion.

  69. ET- Do you have 2.4 Memorial Day presents for us? (had to try)

  70. – Posibility to set the color of a google maps pin on a per pin base.
    – Posibility to make the maps pin hyperlinked and the extra appear on hover.

  71. – Possibility to set hover logo

  72. Multi language site managment options

  73. I’d love a see-through/transparent top main menu like in your Fusion Theme. Where a slider or header image would be the background for the menu. I have bought and used other themes for just this one feature. It’d be great to have it on Divi.

    Better blog/post feature image handling. A way to control the size of the feature image on single posts and in full width view when displaying groups of posts. The giant image that appears for a regular post is way too big for most of my uses. The ability to put in any size image and it be resized automatically, to my specifications, so it displays the same size consistently would be awesome!

    More options for the layout of groups of posts. Like an image on the left and an excerpt on the right, with the ability to adjust the size of the image and excerpt. Right now my only choice is grid, which is good, and full width, which has the “giant” image issue. Your own Elegant Themes blog seems to have the ability to do this and handle image sizing.

    You’re doing great! Thanks! Kirk

    • One more thing… Ability to use the image grid found in portfolio layout for all images, not just project feature images. I’ve created dozens of projects just so I could have the images laid out in a grid/carousel like you can with portfolios. Create a module that allows me to use this layout anytime with any images. Thanks!

  74. It would be fantastic to have the option to create a template for category pages using Divi Builder…. 😉

  75. Can’t wait for the new release, tease, tease, tease! 🙂 the only suggestions I can think of are the “real footer colors” and to be able to set the “footer link colors” without having to do it in CSS.

    Ability to make the header with logo on a transparent background (not a fixed menu, centered, box style), separate from the menu color and / or the header color different from the menu colors.

    Ability for slide shows to show both the image and verbiage on mobile which only the verbiage shows when on mobile devices and the slide images go away.

    Also to be able to adjust credits at the bottom of the sites. Since I deal with entertainers they want credits removed etc and they show back up on updates (I don’t mind, just thats the way they want it). Maybe in the ePanel?

    Other than that we are thrilled to see the new changes! Putting out some rocking designs here!

  76. I didn’t read all comments, so not sure if this has been suggested. And I hope I’m not too late to get this noticed.

    It would be super helpful if we could set a color pallet. In the customize settings select 3-5 colors that make up our pallet and then are easily selectable from the page builder. Currently there’s an “Accent Color” which gets applied to a bunch of things. But it would be nice if there were a few more like it, and then those colors along with the others in the selected in the “colors” section of the customizer, were then available in the color picker in the page builder. Currently there’s some defaults: black, white, red, yellow, etc. Replace those with the colors we select in the customizer so we don’t have to hunt for them or always be copy/pasting their color # code. That would be a HUGE help to anyone using Divi, to build great websites faster!

    • +1

      This would be a great option for site-wide designs. Being able to integrate a custom color pallet for one’s site (and easily reference it for all relevant modules, etc.) would be great.

      This could also be a useful asset for businesses/companies that operate more than one web site and want to enforce some consistency in presentation (as far as colors go).

  77. That would be nice if Divi had better support for large screen phones (or phablets) sucha as the iPhone 6+.

    On these devices, the main content is too narrow and it feels like the site hasn’t been optimized for this growing audience.

    Keep up the good work 🙂

    Ben

  78. Please, please, PLEASE include the functionality that will put tags into RSS feeds, which is supposed to be a WP standard. I can’t podcast my content because there are no enclosure tags.

    • That was supposed to say “enclosure tags” in the first sentence, but I stupidly put “enclosure” in carrots.

  79. After going through a lot of the suggestions, I have a couple that either want to emphasize or I haven’t seen yet. I’m betting that a lot of these are already implemented, but you want to see where the real needs/wants are.

    1. Adjust height on slider – I have a client who wants a slider, but not a big one, and being able to adjust the height would be great.
    2. Fonts! – Everything everybody said about them.
    4. Colors! – Ditto.
    5. Page builder on posts.
    6. Sticky transparent menu.

    I’m not using Divi now on my own site because I need a dedicated magazine style, but I’m hoping that the next iteration of Divi is released soon. And Extra right after that! This next weekend would be ideal. 🙂

  80. Oh and I should add, more needs to be done on the pagespeed, woorank, script loads and html validation. I know WC3 is behind the dinosaurs, but it helps right?

  81. Elegant themes. A very brave post indeed. Nearly 1000 comments at my time of writing this. So I have read everyone else suggestions and I am adding mine. I am sure there may be a few duplicates.

    Thumbnails images for blog posts – both on the ‘list of posts’ page (or widget) or on the home page. This should also include the actual post thumbnail as well. Should be able to make the thumbnail image, fullwidth (of post), fullscreen, floating left or right. Maybe when you have an image, have the option to crop it to fit whatever thumbnail size you have selected.

    Subscribe form, please let it span full page, and be horizontal. I have listed several examples.

    http://lisafabrega.com/
    http://hrostoski.com/

    Header options effects (often when scrolling) – Again, I have listed a few. Maybe if you want an effect, select a menu effect for example.

    http://www.quiroz.co/themes/bigsur/
    http://elegantthemes.com/preview/Bloom/
    http://www.divithemeexamples.com/Star-Cafe-Divi-Child-Theme/

    Footer, should be divisible like the content sections. 2/3 1/3, 1/4,1/4,1/4,1/4, etc

    Contact Form – you need to be able to add more fields.

    Copyright footer section to be editable, without having to edit the PHP.

  82. When is the anticipated release date?

  83. If it’s not too late I’d like to chime in and request a more robust blog module layout settings as well.

    For example, It would be nice to be able to show the masonry layout when people click on categories or tags etc., instead of just the default blog roll option. I’ve found a plug-in that enables the page builder on blog posts, but this would be great if it was included by default as well.

    cheers,

    • Yes, I’d like to be able to customize the blog roll – vary the width of the sidebar so I can make it look the same as on the pages.

      Vincent – can you tell me what plug-in you use for your blog posts.

      Thanks! 🙂

  84. 1) For one-page sites, make it so that when you scroll up or down the page to a different section, the hover effect for the top navigation menu item automatically changes to the applicable link based on which section you’re in.

    For example, if you scroll down from the “About” section to the “Services” section, then the hover effect for the About link in the top nav section should become deactivated and the hover effect for the Services link in the top nav should become active.

    I’ve done this on my own site using a combination of a plugin and some custom coding and it works great except for one BIG problem:

    If a parameter is included in the URL for that page (such as for Google Analytics tracking purposes, etc.) then the hover effect for ALL nav links become active simultaneously.

    Here’s an example of how it *should* work (another theme’s one-page site demo page – but I far prefer Divi!).

    http://www.kriesi.at/themes/enfold-one-page-portfolio/?#top

    2) Code-free options for customizing common CSS elements.

    3) Some templates for customizing the look & layout of blog comments for popular WP comment systems e.g. WP default, Jetpack Comments, etc.

    4) Ability to use page builder with blog posts.

    I know from prior posts that you’re already working on items #2 and #4 above, but would love to see item #1 first and foremost (which I believe many Divi users would appreciate) and also item #3.

    Thanks for all your awesome work. Love Divi!

  85. Some possible improvements for the Gallery module:

    1, (Important) Option to create a new gallery, or to choose from gallerie I’ve created

    2. (Not so important, but would be very nice) Masonry layout

  86. Another suggestion:

    1) Make the theme full responsive, and with it I mean that the width of the sections, the height, the fonts and images, fit to cover the same part of the page no matter what resolution the screen have.

    2) The option to scroll to anchor, totally necessary!

  87. I would like to see a quick implementation to add a graduated/blurred/transparent background on text sections so that when adding text to a slider and other modules, the text can be read easily when a background image is used.

  88. First of all. I’m very happy working with Divi. It has changed my work in so many positiv ways. Also the new german translations of divi are perfect!

    It would be great to edit the footer.php in the theme settings (editable text-content without using an extern editor, a real setting for the background-color and for the font-color = so that the font is not only grey). A problem is also, the overwriting of modified footer.php’s with every update of Divi (so we have to work with childthemes for every small and quick website).

    A good feature would be a dialog in the fullwith slider settings for custom settings in pixel (a real high of slider background images, to get more control in our designs).

    Sorry for my bad english, happy Timo

  89. A control panel with those things:
    Easy to implement other fonts like typekit, fonts.com
    Easy to change colour scheme, the blue is ok, but I am not keen on the (pink, green and orange predefined). This should be easy so I can customise any client website.
    Define size, colour, font for H1, H2, H3, H4, P, hyperlinks links and line heights.
    Increase column % and website max width, I often like websites to have at least 1280px width, so it fits nicely on a large monitor.

    Missing on DIVI and would be nice to have including things from competitors websites:

    1. 100% Full screen image, see the SALIENT theme for example, it has everything that divi has and more.
    http://themenectar.com/demo/salient-frostwave/
    http://themenectar.com/demo/salient-frostwave/about/about-me-example/

    2. Mega Menu (like salient as well)

    3. Transparent header overlaying the image background (Like Salient)

    4. I like this parallax effect for the main slider http://sullivannyc.com/

    5. Better blog layout or easy to customise (image on the side of the list of articles, featured posts etc)

    6. Option to save selected colour on the colour picker

    7.Option to customise predefined modules like (blurb for example) it has a lot of white space under the image and the text isn’t customisable.

    8. Off canvas menu navigation (specially for mobile and tablets)

    9. Social media icons with square background and no background and in grey as well.

    10. Ability to click to “view next/previous project” when viewing a project.

    11. On load, randomise order of projects on the slider-grid

    12. Multi size box grid to display the projects like this http://themenectar.com/demo/salient-frostwave/home-portfolio-eye-candy/

    13. No Animation by default

    14. Ability to copy/ paste/ save or move sections between pages.

  90. Hi Nick and Gang!

    A M*U*S*T* is to enlarge the pop-up work-window where you edit text etc.

    At least on my 27″ iMac the work-window is only a small part of the display, so why not make it both wider and longer.

    It would be much more convenient for most users!

    Cheers,

    Jan E. (Just upgraded to lifetime membership 😉

  91. I would love to get FAQ toggles as modules, that can be sorted into categories and liked/disliked, SEO-friendly…

    Great theme, so far

    Angela

  92. 1. Hex entry for color scheme.

    2. Adjust module height for specific breakpoints. I typically have to adjust the main slider height on every home page to display a background image without being cropped awkwardly.

    Cant wait for the release!

  93. FAN of DIVI !

    A option to customize and add fields to the contact form would be great.

    one can create a lead form out of it and capture leads.

  94. 1. An option to display blog headings ABOVE the featured image when using fullwidt layout for the blog.

    2. A toggel in the Page Builder sections to exclude that particular section for the Side Navigation.

    3. Closing on this thread now…I need DIVI 2.4 tomorrow! 🙂

  95. There’s a ETA for Divi 2.4 and Extra? We’re waiting a long long time… We can see them together till the end of the month?

  96. i have big problems with onepage sites and the menu hover.
    the active item… in onepage divi site are all… i cannot recreate the right onepage navigation dots correct active color highlight.
    i endend up disabling active item color and just a “plane” menu.
    that is something that ill love to change in the personalization page some ticket to the menu to correctly adopt the active section of one page sites…

  97. Wonderful job! I suggest you look into the difficulty of giving credit to the photographer in a sensible way. A global setting that picks the name from an IPTC field or the captionfield in a way that do not destroy the beutiful design of Divi and leave the photo without any ugly frame or strange fontchoice.
    Specially this is difficult for featured images. Remember: Any serious magazine or paper have to take crediting serious. Photos are protected as a property and you can be charged extra from not following the conditions of use. Its also a violation not to refer to the Creative common license when that is asked. This would bring Divi (and Extra) to a serious level of publishing and good design. Thanks

    • +1

      This is a very practical and meaningful suggestion, and I could alleviate a lot of work for people who rely heavily on photography for their web site(s).

      • Typo: it’s supposed to say “it could alleviate…”

  98. Hey,

    I haven’t read through all 983 comments so far, but assuming someone hasn’t said this already, I would love to have the option of setting a given module to be “on top” when the row is re-sized. Currently modules are stacked on top of one another in the order they appear within the row, from left to right, which is fine in most cases. But there are many times where I want the header text (or whatever) to appear on the right side of the page, but get moved top the top of the row when re-sized.

    Anyway, hope that makes sense. Keep up the great work!

    -Mike

  99. It would be nice to have modern/clean and easily update-able photo galleries. As a photographer, I find the photo galleries lacking and had to utilize third party galleries. Another option that is needed is the ability to easily edit the footers to change the copyright information and remove the elegant themes/wordpress line.

  100. I would like to see (apart from most of the above):

    – A blank child theme bundled with the downloadable theme package.

    – An option to have the map pins address bubbles open on page load instead of requiring a click to open.

    – Maps to be able to display Google local listings so when we add a map to show the location of a clients business the map show their Google local listing instead of just a generic address listing.

    – A mega Menu similar to the Avada theme where you can add widgets into a dropdown menu.

    – A modal Popup shortcode

  101. Some great suggestions, not sure if I’ve missed these in other people’s ideas…

    The ability to LOCK sections/rows or PASSWORD PROTECT pages… some of my clients need access to the back-end and the ability to update to a certain level, i.e. changing wording and content, but NOT delete sections etc. User privileges are no good for achieving this.

    More control over how the header and logo look on mobile devices… there is not enough scalability of logos in responsive mode, switches from big to small and not incremental which can look amateur on an otherwise fantastic theme.

    Echo what others have said about EXTRA… the release of EXTRA is more important to me (selfish as I am!) and have been stalling on a very big project for a year now…

    If EXTRA is not happening, how about giving DIVI more magazine-like sections and features.

    Import controls to allow better transfer between (for example) Lucid and Divi

  102. It’s good to see that divi is still a priority for ET.
    My suggestion is to add an accordion option for the vertical menu.
    When you have many pages, secondary menus cover a lot of space on the current page.
    It would be great to have secondary menus open under the current menu item inside the sidemenu. That could be a solution for very long mobile menus also.

  103. I am an offline business guy. I outsourced setting up a blog with Divi. Setup but not launched yet. Now I want to add a blog page, add and change pics, etc. Simple stuff. I went thru the tutorials and some How-To videos a little simpler would be great.

    i.e. Add a blog page and change content easily for non-techs.

    Great theme – thank you!

  104. Events, events, events. …did I mention events?

    It would be great to have a solid and versatile events module. I’ve been trying to use Projects or even pages, but nothing is quite right yet. This would be so outstanding.

    Also, a way modify the mobile site to highlight things like the phone number. I’d love to people on mobile to see my number, big, bold and clickable.

  105. 1. I would like columns without margin’s between them-like the portfolio, but with ability to include text, images, buttons etc. In short material design: http://material.cmiscm.com/

    2. Sliding overlays that can be configured

    3. More control options for the slider

    4. Ability to control button designs features ( I dislike the current buttons-look so old school). Flat and square button options.

    5. Keep up the good work, Elegant Team!

  106. I agree with most all of the suggestions above – boy are there a lot! Working with so many artist websites, I have a couple of simple ones that may not have been mentioned yet.

    One, it would be great if one could click through the entire gallery of image enlargements in the Gallery module. As it is, one can only enlarge one at a time.

    Two, it would be nice if we could bold a page title or slide title. Sometimes a client’s image background doesn’t work so well with either the dark or light text setting in the slider, so the ability to bold the title–and even the text–without having to resort to Google Fonts effects would be very helpful and a time-saver. It would be even better if we could easily add a drop shadow or stroke to add further definition to the slide text. And the ability to add a drop shadow to the slide image to “lift” it off the background image would be fabulous!!

    Also, allowing for a footer line that accommodates the owner’s copyright and a website design/assembly credit for the web professional who does the hands-on work to make a website for a client – one that wouldn’t get wiped out by updates – would be awesome. I don’t mind a credit for Elegant Themes/Divi at all, but a link from client website to the web designer’s website is an important form of promotion that shouldn’t be hard to keep intact despite theme or WP core (when footer.php is utilized for this) updates.

    I thought I had one more suggestions but can’t find my notes and that’s all I can think of now. If I find my notes (or my memory!) I’ll be back with more. Thanks so much for this wonderful theme!

  107. I was using your style shop theme on my website http://cybermarketingservice.com/

    but due to google mobile update I have to change as style shop was not responsive, I tried to use Divi but it didn’t worked for me due to my website requirements. My only request at this stage is that please make your all themes responsive as its important now.

  108. Template for creating online courses and/or memberships site would be AWESOME.

    Need something simple and easy to create (drag and drop); flexible and with luxe designs (luxurious feel or sophisticated design templates and your professional/basic designs for those who prefer that look as well

    With all the bells & whistles to included plugin that protect the course copy; video and audio options; pdf and documents uploaded in a snap.

    Can you make that happen with this new version?

    Please do, thanks-a-million!
    .

  109. We don´t know if this has already been mentioned above, but the most time we spend on new site adaptations is used getting the Logo + Site Name (not either or) just right in terms of height and relative size to the Logo or Site Name (Company/Blog/Product name) respectively… Also we might like to have it in the middle quite large, like it was possible in Vertex, and then once one scrolls down, have it minimize in the header…Various options regarding this would be GREAT!

  110. Custom forms PRETTY PLEASE

  111. Hi there, you make very cool stuff…. thank you!!
    It will be useful to make possible hiding or moving the navigation bar from the top… for example if I need to publish only a landing page I don’t need the navigation but I want to use Divi for all the content grid. Or I need to have a slide first on the top and then the navigation bar.

    Thank you!

    Emiliano, Italy.

  112. make the footer stick to bottom for smaller content

  113. 1. Please add more blog design/format.
    2. Font Clarity

  114. You could improve the text editor which needs a big upgrade instead of wasting time on bigger than Ben Hur features that no one gives a rats about.

    The text editor is pathetic especially when it is not in visual mode and you put all your html mark up it it only to have it constantly deleted or ruined by the program

    It’s my biggest gripe ! And the most obvious thing that needs addressing

    Mike

  115. I wish it was easier to change the font size and font type in a text module.
    I know I can use Heading 1 to make it large. But that does not work well for me.

    Also, I think this is coming, but it would be great to be able to make the Menu font larger too.

    Looking forward to this! Thank you.

  116. Thumbnails that keep their aspect ratio, not forced into the same shape. As the composition of certain images is very important for its impact and not able to just fit in that grid shape.

  117. Hello ET Team

    Top Sliding bar?
    It would be nice if you could integrate a separated TOP sliding Bar – for 2.4 or later – , that includes the possibility of widgets to be integrated individually. Function like: a Click on the + sign (or an arrow or a graphic that can be individual icon chosen for it or equal) and then the top bar slides down with the content / widgets, and with a click again it slides up – as a full width top bar (and for boxed layout as an option if other customers want it additionally in a boxed layout). Then the option with a background graphic / background colors to chose for it.
    At some pages I see a top bar that can be opened by a “+” sign or equal. I want to create a bigger portal via WP MU and such a function could be very helpful for common wide elements for each sub blog – like a sitewide menu implemented via a common top bar.

    I also agree with all the other great ideas of the other above, e.g. the configurations for the blurbs, margins, option for fullwidth header images with individual settings for the height and then the menu below (or above) and more configuration options for the menu for the style, background, colors, fonts, icons… Do you integrate a megamenu with pictures or map or html code? (like megamenu plugin). Also better video slides with more options like revolution slider or the Layer Slider plugin.
    And the epanel could be much more clearly and more complex for options for the colors, layouting, configuration. It looks a little bit “old”. I can’t realy use it for my purposes – it has to less options and I don’t like to code for every extra configuration for colors, fonts, sizes of h1-h6 aso. Maybe you know the theme Enfold (just written here for information but I think you will know it. Have a look on it. They created a fine admin configuration menu system. maybe it will imbue you).
    Also integrate the builder completely for the posts – that would be very fine.

    You are doing a great job here and maybe you can integrate these possibilities step by step.
    When are you planning to release the 2.4 update and Extra?

    Thanks
    kind regards

  118. Custom Post Page Builder, a easy way to change the look of a single post page. To make unique layouts for chosen posts.

  119. Jeff made a good point.
    I would like to go even further,
    being able to create mobile specific layouts/content within
    the same page is the answer
    to display the right content on smartphones and Desktops.

  120. Holy smokes… what a long list! I bet you guys wish you hadn’t asked! hahaha!!! So this may be on the list so please forgive me if it is but it would be awesome of the editor was more visual and had front end visual editing for those of us that get frustrated with switching back and front, back and front to see how the changes affect the front end. That is probably my biggest frustration.

  121. The ability to hide elements from mobile or tablet or both. OptimizePress 2.0 does this with check boxes. It’s an awesome feature that allows you to completely remove elements that are too big or clunky or simply not needed on the mobile or tablet versions.

  122. I apologize if my english is not very good, but I’m no native speaker.

    We (our WordPress Team) second most of the suggestions already made, but here are our most urgent wishes:

    1. One of the features we miss most on Divi is the option to switch a module/section to active/inactive status. When inactive, it will not display on the website frontend. This switch should also have an option based on a calendar (date/time) for switching on/off.
    Here is a simple example: A client wants to display a special sale only on certain days of the week (e.G. “Start of the week” sale on Mondays), but it remains the same sale for several month. Currently we have to save the section/module, load it to display it and delete it, when it is over. The next monday we have to load it again to display it, mostly at night. That is a lot of hassle and could be solved in a more elegant way (which is a part of your company name, right?).

    2. Another option that would be highly appreciated is the possibility to copy/move modules or sections between pages.

    3. We are dearly missing the “Featured Slider” in Divi, that we know from your other themes. It would be really helpful for clients, who want to be able to use a slider for news items, but should not allowed to mess around with the whole divi theme.

    4. An option to change the slug for projects – as already mentioned several times – would be pretty helpful.

    5. A pure code module!

    6. Please improve the maps module, so that it is no longer inferior to the Google maps code used to integrate a map. It should be superior to Google’s own code. We would like an option to add additional information to a set marker like a (formatted) adress, links and a company logo. Furthermore we are really missing a link to plan a route directly from the map, like you can do from the “iframed” Google map. The map module should also recognize, if a user is logged in with his/her Google account and show more information like the users own markers accoordingly.

    7. Please progress from shortcodes to plain HTML/CSS. We have to mention the fact, that Divi is a “one way forever” solution, in every pitch and it really scares clients off. And honestly, the fact that your own “Elegant Page Builder” is incompatible with Divi’s Layout Builder, is embarrassing and tarnishes your otherwise excellent impression.

  123. What neat functions and options! More fonts are always nice to have, with either an easier way to add them in or more that are already installed to choose from.

    • Yes! I second this. More fonts and more font sizes please in a text module

  124. Oh, something more. A tab or slider module (or a combo maybe?) would be great, which has a navigation – like tabs – but just for the titles, visitors cannot click on it, they can navigate with the next/back buttons/arrows (or first has some automatic play like slideshow, than they can go back and forth), so they have to read through, if they want to see the end. It would be a very cool marketing tool for offers.

  125. Hi there! I think ones mentioned some of these above, but my suggestions are:
    – can change the background of single modules, so we can create metro type pages
    – somehow harmonize the sizes of the columns (or the last modules of a row…), so if there are two coloured modules next to each other, their bottom line equals
    – can save single modules, not just layouts, so we can use them on other pages, like widgets
    – undo-redo function on the editor, so we can undo deleted modules for example
    – something like “post module”, so we can put one or several determined posts (experts) on a page

    Thank you guys, love you work!! And can’t wait for the new release!

  126. I think is necessary to have the ability to generate single blocks with the same functions to insert as part of other layouts in the pages you want.

    I wish I could create loose blocks, to display on different pages of my site. And when you want to make a change in that room, only you need to change it once.

    Picture a call to action that you want to repeat on 7 different pages. Now when you want to make a change, you have to do it page by page.

    If we had a post type where create a single block to later integrate it where you want, just would have to make the change once.

    And a brands slider!!

  127. Hi there Nick,

    I was just about to send in a suggestion for the next update when your email arrived. Great timing!

    I’ve been changing my website’s navigation and spent a lot of time going back and forth with both sections and modules. The one thing that kept tripping me up was that the open and delete icons (the three bars and the x) are on opposite sides for each. A couple of times I hit the x when I really wanted to open the module.

    It might be my tech writing background rearing its head but I wondered how that got past the usability testing.

    Not a crisis for sure and if you’re not flipping back and forth you don’t notice it too much.

    Looking very forward to the new update! Divi is great for a newbie like me.

    Paula

  128. Hi

    Thanks for your opinion request. Sorry if my input is a repetition. This thread is just too massive to read through.

    I love using Divi, but a couple of things would be welcome additions:

    1: Looks great with the font size control !!

    2: How about a similar control over margins and padding?

    3: I am using the new video module quite a lot. However, I am embedding Vimeo videos and the user has to press play twice to watch. Is it possible to have the initial “play” button actually activate the video or else remove it and leave the Vimeo play button in control?

    Thanks
    Michael

  129. 1. Get rid of all of your offshore tech support. Too many cultural and communication issues.
    2. Make it possible to have et-advertisement widgets to show up on mobile devices. Advertisers are not happy to pay for adverts only to see they don’t show up on smartphones, which are the highest used search and web devices.
    3. Having more options than just ‘dark’ and ‘light’ text. A color selector is far more appropriate.
    4. The list above demonstrates there’s quite a bit missing.

    There’s going to be a lot of disappointed posters here when they find out their suggestions weren’t included in the next rev.

    Personally, given the poor support and missing documentation, we moved away from ET. We found better options. Though the cost was more, they were worth the investment. Good luck.

  130. If I have missed this suggestion I apologise.

    A bit more control on slider image size.

    Saving portions of the layout for other pages rather than the whole page.

  131. I would love to see a way to edit the buttons. Maybe a few different type of button designs from which you can select.

    • I totally agree with the buttons and being able to have more design options in stead of just dark and light text.

  132. But with my previous post in mind…You’ve done an amazing job on Divi and the updates are exciting.

  133. All these extra’s sound exciting, but not as exciting as the EXTRA theme sounded almost a year ago. I was considering renewing my Elegant Themes subscription, and eventually decided to let it go. I looked for different magazine themes. I check back every now and then to see whether EXTRA has been released yet. I would gladly pay the subscription fee for DIVI and EXTRA.

    I love Divi and Elegant themes, but for some reason, the usual punctual way of delivering themes has just gone out the window over the last year. Really, another DIVI update? It’s clearly your Platinum theme, but I can guarantee that Extra would garner just as much interest for your company.

    When can we expect Extra guys?

  134. LET me just quote Bob
    This is a terribly worrying post. The last thing you want to do before shipping a product is add more features. But the post did generate a lot of excitement, which means if this is a smokescreen to buy time, it worked.

    Rather than more stuff, more promises, more excitement, I would just like to have Divi 2.4 released ASAP without new stuff and then EXTRA as fast as you possibly can.

    Stop promising stuff and start delivering it. Pretty please. With sugar on top.

    We’ve waited a long time.

  135. As a photographer I would love to have something more ‘elegant’ than the current gallery system. Why not something horizontal scrolling like in say the fluxus theme? I really would love that

  136. I would love if there was an easy way to move the header logo to the center of the header with the menus on both sides of the logo.

  137. I would like to know if its possible to put a field that will allow to Disable the Posts image thumb so that i will not appear in the actual single posts rendering?

    I just want the featured image to appear in the home page blog section or any blog section of your site that is using the Blog module and I love to make it look like a magazine by using different sizes of featured images.

    This is my only concern at the moment.

  138. Hello,
    I would like to see an option on the e-panel to choose between a horizontal or a vertical menu.
    Also, please include on the footer a field to insert our own credits!

  139. Please ensure that WooCommerce hooks and templates aren’t overwritten, so much so that official WooCommerce extensions don’t work well 🙁

  140. Thanks ET for giving us this coveted moment. A lot have been requested but I want to re-echo these crucial add-ons with a crucial suggestion.

    1. Make menu a module with class and id and options to choose various default templates. Reason is obvious when people knew the word cloning.

    2. Slider is cool but more add-on like a rotating text, overlays etc with other cool subtle animation add-up.

    3. Someone mentioned deactivating some module styling for mobile view if some modules are not in usage like wooecommerce to aid mobile experience. I think, Divi should port her own mobile app (maybe like handheld plugin you created) with sundry styling options like the newsletter plugin….not expecting this soon anyways but this singular move will save the nonconforming parallax effect and other pros.

    Thank you for this wonderful ingenuous solution.

    Warm Regards

  141. Great suggestions here! I Would love to be able to upload Videos from youtube and also be able to just add Videos and images in the Full-width portfolio (So when there clicked on it doesn’t take you to another page but opens in a lightbox on the same page). I have a few clients that love the look of the full-width portfolio but it doesn’t work they way they like.

    Thanks for the awesome theme!!!! Love it!!

  142. This is a terribly worrying post. The last thing you want to do before shipping a product is add more features. But the post did generate a lot of excitement, which means if this is a smokescreen to buy time, it worked.

    We’ve waited a long time.

    • Agreed!

      I can’t believe anyone would buy into this.

      I’ve left ideas, knowing none of them, or MAYBE a few of the lower lying fruit will be included. MS doesn’t even have enough dev power to add all this stuff in a month. Develop, test, rework, test, rework, test; all in a month????

      • Very few of these suggestions will make it into Divi 2.4, because very few of them were related to what we asked for in the post: WordPress Theme Customizer Options.

        It’s very realistic for us to add a wide array of customizer options very quickly, but the rest of the suggestions in this post are still things we can consider for future version of Divi. We read every single comment and appreciate every single suggestion.

    • My sentiments Rod. I have never in all my years involved in using WordPress, with all the paid professional plugins that I subscribe to, even WordPress itself, the community of users are never asked for suggestions to go into a version that is being promised in approx. one month. This does not make any sense at all. And the only logical reason that I can think of, is that it’s another delaying tactic, because considering how long this has taken so far to be released why would you now call for suggestions. Psychological I suppose, to make people believe they can have input even at this late hour will hopefully calm the masses. On a more positive note, I think we will have an amazing version of Divi and until then there are lots of other goodies to play with.

  143. Would like if the page builder could be used to create a template for more specific pages / areas of the website like:

    – Project
    – Archive
    – Search result
    – Blog post (single.php)
    – Error (404.php)

  144. Wow! What great suggestions here, many that I never thought of. One thing that I would find really useful would be some control over the line height in text blocks. As it stands now, the text looks really squished, especially if your using – H3> sizes for display text and it runs over to more than one line. I end up using the CSS “line-height” command in my text modules to make the text look better, but it’s additional work.

    Thanks!

  145. Hello, excuse my poor english 🙂

    I’d really like to have the possibility to block layout modification for non-admin users.
    Once a layout is defined, what i’d like is the non-admin users can edit the content of each modules, but not delete or add modules.

    Thanx for your fantastic work

  146. You mentioned making the content builder into a plugin so you can change a theme without having your content trapped in a “proprietary” content builder. Please! Do this! I have avoided themes I love because their content builder is proprietary. I even purchased Divi months ago – but haven’t tried it yet – because of this! Fingers crossed – you’ll do this in 2.4!

    • Don’t worry, the plugin is coming shortly after 2.4. In fact, the main work we are doing in 2.4 is related to the Divi Builder Plugin, and how this framework will be the backbone of Extra and future versions of Divi.

  147. Hey- not sure anyone will read this, but a couple things I’d love to see:

    MAPS- ability to lock map view- maybe a toggle on user side even?

    SLIDER- would love to see it more customizable-
    – Pick slide in direction per slide like icons.
    – Allow slides to “stack” to build animations

    Header- customize more, transparency, choose height,

    • Inclusion of the Revolution, Fusion, Elastic and Layer Sliders would help.

      • With the new fullwidth code module coming in 2.4, you will be able to easily integrate these third part sliders into fullwidth sections.

  148. Hi ,
    Sorry if I’m repeating some of the requests ( I didn’t read ALL the comments….very long list…)

    1.An easier way to change spacing between modules & sections.
    2.Continuous audio player.
    3.Audio player playlist.

    Thank you all folks @ ET 🙂

  149. Not the subject, but please, add an easy way to create audio article without uploading the file on the website. Something like that : a field to add the file URL to make an audio article without uploading it to the server.

    Thanks a lot !!

  150. Dear ET-Team,

    i am so much looking forward!

    You would make me even more happy when:
    – not adding automaticaly tons of when having a in the title from modules

    thanks alot.
    Arno

    • How about the ability to set a round frame around images…
      like here: http://jaano.de/ueber-uns/
      in this example its made with selfmade pngs.

  151. A better way to differentiate posts on a blog style listing. Perhaps by tags, category, or an option that you select. So that Title of posts in certain areas can either have its own color or background image to further differentiate them on the main page.

  152. Customize CTA buttons.. Different rotator effects. Add slider option to background images (like how you can add a video to the background)

  153. I can’t wait for this update! Also, I agree with everyone that it would be nice to have a place where we can download other’s Divi templates.

  154. Love Elegant themes and Divi. Thanks for all you do. Here are my ideas:
    1. Need more flexibility in modules to reduce padding/margins
    2. Would love the ability to adjust size of images boxes and images in blurbs

  155. so looking forward to this! would love to see the option to put images modules and text modules (and maybe even a few more) in the fullwidth sections. I find myself needing this a lot when doing highly customized divi sites, since it’s my go-to platform for all my sites.

  156. I have stumbled upon a few great things I think that could really help improve Divi they may have been stated by someone else already if so please disregard.

    1. The option to disable some java features on mobile for increasing page speed.

    2. Minified code for page loading time improvement. Divi is so great because you can customize the css to the extreme but having a lot of css with spaces can be harsh on page load.

    3. Customize the the mobile nav menu including the Telephone, Email and allow picking and choosing of which social icons to include.

    4. Allow an HTML block widget instead of a using a Text Block widget. In certain sections as it relates to SEO wordpress isn’t so friendly with Microdata. It would often fix my code while switching views by just adding it with a text block. (maybe this is fixable or maybe not).

    5. Customizable contact form. I found that the contact form built in does look really nice and may work for some but I also found that it is very limited in the information and doesn’t work so well for businesses.

    SO EXCITED FOR RESPONSIVE DIVI. 100% responsive and more customization will greatly improve my work flow. Keep up the hard work it’s really making a difference in wordpress.

  157. An option to customize CTA buttons, styling, sizes, etc.

  158. Hello, Here is a simple suggestion . the ability to not show certain block in the mobile phone

  159. Full-width embed map from Google maps. That would be great. At least, for me.

  160. I have been looking into CSS Hero plug in. I am wondering if Divi 2.4 is capable of eliminating the need of using such plug in for styling?

    • So many great suggestions! I’d like to “second” some of them:

      Ability to put text over an image, especially if it only shows up if you roll over the image.

      Ability to adjust padding, font and colors in modules.

      Control of slider height.

      Option to leave out modules on mobile.

      Control of button size / shape / color – individual control, each time a button is used.

      LinkedIn button for social!

      Looking forward to the new release – what you’ve done so far looks amazing, and so many good suggestions above. 🙂

  161. Like the new customizations you show in the footer for columns etc, I think it would be useful to have the same thing in the content at the very top of the site where the “phone, email and social links and cart” are located. I would like the ability to customize that info too. Sometimes I want to add different elements[custom text box] or sometimes I want to change the color/size/location of those elements.

    Also: related to sections. I think the fullwidth section should have a html/plain text modul box and colums too. Right now I believe it’s only limited to 3 differnt things, a header, a slider and portfolio?

  162. Can you ensure that Divi passes Google’s Mobile-Friendly test?

  163. 7. add in Font Awesome into the Blurb module!

  164. 6. In the Pricing Table, the ability to add a “Sale”

  165. A few contributions:

    – Custom Layout for Single Posts
    – Page Builder for Posts and Custom Posts
    – Register / SignUp Module (like the Login Module)
    – 6 Column Row
    – Option to choose Hamburger Menu for all devices
    – Padding control between sections and rows
    – “No animation” by default in Images and Blurb modules
    – Option to choose vertical / Horizontal form fields in Subscribe module
    – Custom Color for a the Call To Action button

  166. Wow.. 865 comments as of now..
    Can’t go through all of them but in case it hasen’t been mentioned.

    I hope the Divi Builder is something like : WPBakery Visual Composer ( or better). That’s the one I’m using and now it’s hard not to compare it to everything.

    Drag and Drop modules, Very customizable ( per module) and most important. The ability to set the padding on top and bottom ( again this is per module) and no need of code. It’s all there in the settings. This is very important for us Designers.

    Hope to see something like that to give Divi a chance again and make it my go to WordPress theme.

  167. ****To be able to work in the front end not the back end, so that you can do changes on the fly and see them happen live****

    other (easier) ideas!
    1. can the Contact Form module have more fields – similar to Contact Form 7, AND look as cool as the Bloom designs
    2. the ability to add one or two buttons in the header (eg “email”, “sign up”)
    3. the ability to add an extra button in the current modules such as Call To Actions, the slider etc
    4. for the developer package, be able to omit the footer text credits
    5. the ability to change font type, colour & size, padding for each module

  168. I’d like a slider that you could put horizontally across the page with separate boxes so you could put background images with text and link to a page.
    Like on this website..
    http://www.theinertia.com/

    Don’t know if this is already possible,I’m still learning!
    Thanks!

  169. Can’t wait!

    Would be cool if for the image module, we can upload a “rollover” state of the image, if it is to be used as a link.

    Also, to be able to create a header/main navigation with images (including rollovers and selected states).

    Thank you for an awesome product!!

  170. These suggestions all sound great. However, if Divi could deliver the same kind of features as ‘Ultimate Shortcodes plugin’ for Visual Composer, then I’m sure that we would all be very happy!

    Check them out here https://www.brainstormforce.com/demos/ultimate/ some great features and elements.

    Someone mentioned pop-ups..check these out https://www.brainstormforce.com/demos/ultimate/modal/
    …and there’s more interesting features to investigate – NOTE: I have no affiliation at all – just came across this looking for alternative themes…

    And if Extra could deliver a similar experience to the BBC News app – well…we would be in heaven.

    Time-frames for these releases? We’re growing beards here….

    • Something similar to Ultimate Shortcodes for the Divi Builder would be great..
      by the way, that’s also a trend now , (growing beard) lol

  171. Better slider control. Would love to be able to adjust the width and height of the slider

  172. Can’t wait!! Here is my Divi wishlist:
    1. ability to change amount of space between sections
    2. ability to change how a full-size image appears–like the ability to center it

    I think that’s it for now!

  173. Hi There,

    Could you please include icons and shortcuts to LinkedIn in your next release?

    Thanks!

    claude

  174. -Option to turn sections on or off
    -(more) Color setting options for modules (border, content etc.)
    -Option to set in the module settings the minimum height to allow exact horizontal line up of modules in columns.
    -Option to request phone number in contact form

    Given the amount of feedback/ideas. Check out Running Lean from Ash Maurya. It may help you make the right choices.

  175. In the theme builder:

    – ACTIVE MODULE SORTING – Sort the modules by starting to type their name on a keyboard
    – Ctrl+Z UNDO function – sometimes you accidentaly delete a module with content and go uggghhhhhh….
    – more Fullwidth options, like testimonials
    – global font color settings, more than just ‘accent color’ or ‘link color’ – I want to have different link and hover colors for the footer, different for the body, and different for the sidebar, for example.

  176. I love divi! Great job guys! Some suggestions that come to mind is the slider options and how it looks Different in responsive in comparison to desktop, also if there could be more image gallery options such as more hover effects, black and white to colour effects etc. padding between sections can be too much sometimes specially in responsive. Also more logo placement options and more social media icons plus different icon looks and types and finally here is the most important one (at least I think so) THE MENU! AND SUBMENUS! They are huge on desktop with enourmous amounts of padding. More menu customization options would be great!. I’ve managed to customize most things with css and php but the menus was a head ache to look the same both in desktop and mobile. Look forward to the release!

  177. Can’t wait to see Divi 2.4

    Some wishes:
    1. Pagebuilder for posts (Would be GREAT)
    2. More menu options, like transparency
    3. The possibility to change the languages of the pagebuilder in English despite the fact that WordPress is in an other language. Example. Dutch WP and English pagebuilder. (For ET support you need an English pagebuilder)
    4. Option to change Footer credits
    5. Padding adjustments
    6. Color of the Slider text
    7. Image placed over two modules
    8. More fields contactform

  178. Mailchimp has a setting where you can easily set up a separate set of stylesheets for how the emails preview on mobile devices. Something similar would be excellent for Divi (unless it is already there of course ::-)

    Mobile Styles > Heading 1 > etc etc and then every element within website can be styled more precisely for different devices.

    I also find the mega-menu a tad clumsy with only be able to have single drop downs or across the entire width – no in between.

    It is also pretty horrible in use on a mobile device especially if the menu is long. At the very least, and close menu button.

  179. Hi Guys,
    I love Divi theme but id like to be able to adjust the size of background images. Up to now Ive been adding blank divider modules but I’m sure this is something you could include in the next update. Id also love if there was an option to increase the leading of the text because sometimes the default text can look squashed when using ‘heading 3’

    Cheers

  180. Do you know when Divi 2.4 is published ? The new features look very interesting !

  181. Hi,

    ability to disable shrinking of navigation bar + logo when you start scrolling would be nice. 100s of people have asked for this feature in forums.

    • If I understand correctly what you are asking, you can disable it in the e-panel >> general settings.

      Just “disable” the Fixed Navigation Bar. 🙂

  182. I would like settings to be able to easy make space between areas bigger/smaller and an option to copy modules with settings!

  183. Having the ability to enable the builder since the epanel to all types of content type. Actually we implement this by coding it and this is not practice.

    An exemple of our work with divi : http://www.ariena.org

  184. GREAT WORK ON DIVI!

    for me:

    – a module for code
    – on body font need also selection of interline and any of hn giving the possibility of mixing fonts, size and interline that sometime is too large.
    – need always more customization on map module, custom pins, connect a pin to a page/post
    – page builder: append layout! the workflow sometime need to add some module to a series of pages.
    – page builder on post
    – automatic animation on gallery slide
    – target _blank in CALL TO ACTION
    – blog module: possibility to select also projects and pages
    – color picker instead of dark & light

    go on rocking! thank you

  185. I find that the module settings window is not using available space efficiently. So here’s my list:

    1. Make the module settings window full height for the screen, so it’s more comfy for people who work on a laptop as well.
    2. Decrease the size of the Save / Load / Clear layout buttons. They are wasting valuable space!
    3. Give an option to hide the help descriptions in the module settings window. After using a module 3 times, you know by heart what does what, so descriptions are unnecessary and wasting space.

    You can take my customization as an example if you want:
    http://www.divi-magazine.com/more-efficient-admin-ui-in-divi/

    Very much looking forward to 2.4!!!

    • 1+

      p.s
      I’ve been using this tweak you made already, plus added some of my own.. but would be great (and time saving) if the theme was shipped with a better use of space (and maybe avoid the time-consuming-scrolling on each module !)

  186. I hope this isn’t just a repetition from another suggestion. I would like to be able to make use of the ‘read more’ option in text modules so I can reduce the space taken up on some of my pages.

  187. Hi,

    The adjustments for the front pages are great, but what about the further sites? Like Categorys and so on?
    It would be nice if could be customize these pages also reasonable. smaller thumbnails, different layout etc.

    Ok, Divi is not for that Type of Pages, but Extra isnt there 😉

  188. I forgot…

    SWITCH BETWEEN BUILDER AND CODE
    For a while the team I’m in were using Divi to quickly prototype a new site, but we had to move away from it because as soon as you switch from the builder to the standard editor you completely lose everything. We expected to see the shortcodes and be able to manually edit the code but alas.

    Might this be considered?

    BLURB MODULE ICONS
    I’m sure someone else will have said this but it would be great to have the option to use your own icons in the blurb module.

    SHIP WITH CHILD THEME
    I know I could create my own, and I have, but for those users who are new to all of this shipping with a pre-rolled child theme would be a wonderful and considerate thing.

    HIDE ROWS OR MODULES
    Often I want to remove a row or module but only for a short period. I would love the ability to hide these from publishing but with the option to show them again later, rather than having to completely delete and rebuild.

    SAVE ROWS NOT JUST LAYOUTS
    When you load a layout it wipes everything. I would be really valuable to be able to save rows that could then be dropped into any page.

    Thanks again…

  189. I think it would be great to have the ability to insert more than one column in a full-width module.

    • 1+
      And that’s becoming a trend now as I’ve noticed ..

  190. You may already have received some of this feedback. Forgive me for not reading through 830+ posts.

    POSITION OF OPTIONS AND DELETE
    In the Fullwidth Slider Module Settings the hamburger menu (☰) and the delete (x) are on the opposite sides to those of the (grey) modules which I found very counter-intuitive.

    For modules I always know to go to the left for options, and go to the right to delete it. So when I am in the Fullwidth Slider Module Settings I intutively go to the left for settings and … dang! I’ve just deleted that slide AGAIN.

    Would you consider standardising the location throughout the interface?

    EPANEL
    I feel that the design of the epanel is probably the weakest part of the theme, certainly design and usability wise. I have colleagues in my digital team who won’t use the theme because of it.

    Any chance this could be made more WordPress-y, more consistent with the standard interface. It could certainly make better use of the space to prevent so much scrolling and hunting.

    On a related note, it’s not entirely obvious to me what the distinction is between Appearance > Divi Theme Options (epanel) and Appearance > Customise, particularly as the latter offers a “Theme Settings” section.. but, but… isn’t that the same as Theme Options?

    CODE MODULE
    A +1 for the idea to introduce a code module. At the moment I have to create a new widget area, with a text block inside it, and then use the Sidebar module in Divi to include it.

    CUSTOM POST TYPE
    It would be utterly amazing to be able to easily and quickly create a custom post types (plus related taxonomies) within the Divi options/settings/wherever and for this custom post type to use the page builder.

    RENAME PROJECTS
    On a related note, to be able to easily re-label projects — or even hide it for those projects that don’t use it.

    HEADER
    Being able to resize the header would be really useful too (make it taller), or prevent it from shrinking once you scroll — so fixed height always.

    CONCLUSION
    I have to say that regardless of my wishlist there, I’m loving Divi — particularly the page builder, which is really easy to use and very intuitive (except when I keep deleting sliders!). Thank you.

  191. contact form with drag and drop fields, too

  192. Hi Elegant Themes.
    Here is a simple suggestion.
    How about releasing what you have already promised to start with instead of dragging this on with these posts very two months with new promises. And after one year NOW a FEATURE REQUEST.
    This is MOCKERY.
    You guys must be familiar with the term scalability I suppose.

  193. that good news !!
    Divi could make it more compatible with some plugins calendar.
    thanks

  194. I love Divi anyway but a contact form with drag and drop fields would be great.

  195. If it can be done, a coupon module would be good.

  196. – The IMAGE GALLERY doesn’t have an option to START CICLING images with a (disolve) transition (like in the sliders)

    – IMPORTANT: use DIFFERENT TRANSITIONS, not just disolve. I’ld like at least slide image to a side or up, down, etc, etc. There are a lot.

    Thanks for considering it…

  197. SIDE NAVIGATION is great for one-page sites, but it LACKS of customization.

    – It is IMPORTANT to append a TEXT NAME LINK besides each dot.

    – It would be nice to change color, size and TRANSPARENCY in all of that: the box, the dots, the text links.

    – Even changing position and proportion of the box would be great, that way you can play positioning it in a creative way, up, down, inner, or like that the element could be floating in the page, stops when you hover, explore links and click.

    Thanks for considering it…

  198. Lots of awesome suggestions here! I read many, but just don’t have time to read all the way to avoid possible duplication, but here are my top requests:

    Heading options in customizer (That’s heading not header)
    There are 6 heading designations. We should be able to choose different colors for them and specify what size we want. (If not different colors for all 6, at least let us distinguish headings 1, 2 and 3.) Same with size. Different fonts require different sizes, let us choose.

    Ditch the dark and light font designations for the menu and headings and just let us choose the font color. Gray font looks lousy and is hard to read on any color background.

    Make it easier to specify main content background color, at least on a global basis. That’s more important to me than choosing the background color that we never see.

    How about a full width image slider with height not dependent on how many lines of text there are? What if we want a slider with no text?

    I agree with many suggestions above also, but these are top for me and I didn’t see them. Thanks for making such an awesome theme!

  199. The ability to adjust the padding between modules !!! would be great

  200. • Open CTA buttons in new windows

    • Real Estate Property Search Widgets/functionality

  201. Hi, Please consider these small suggestions.

    Create a separate copy of Divi (For those who don’t want to edit core files) in which you have to do :-

    Minimized CSS
    Minimized JavaScript
    Minimized HTML
    Size tap targets for mobile responsiveness
    Eliminate render-blocking JavaScript and CSS in above-the-fold content

    These things will make our websites mostly PageSpeed compatible, so we don’t have to waste our time to modifying these things.

    Thanks

  202. I am excited for this release as well! You are definitely touching on things I’d love to have in this theme: ability to change layout sizes, padding etc.

    The only other thing that I’d love to see is, font sizes and font weights added on various elements but primarily the menu, body and title bar.

  203. Hi, I really love Divi and the ease of use. Haven’t read all of the comments- there are so many. Ditto to all of those suggestions, especially logo, header, builder for posts, code module, text over images, more default icons in header/nav bar and footer, more buttons/options and easier placement anywhere-like posts, control width of page/post, menu and footer options.

    The blog feels like an afterthought but WP started as a blogging platform right and is still very important. Please include blog styling options, many of the free themes, especially by Automattic, have much nicer blog styling and features by default. Block-quote and pull quote options seem non-existent, why? I know I can get related post, next post, author bio, etc. and other features in a plugin but would be nice to have these blog necessities in Divi to match the rest of the site. The featured image is too big and hard to work with. I know a lot of people have created beautiful blogs and typography with it but seems too much custom CSS or code is needed to get there for a premium theme and to get it to match rest of site. And what’s with bullets not working? Love being able to create beautiful pages but may have to settle for plain pages and get a beautiful blog elsewhere fast without the extra CSS, sorry, but it is that important, and wait for the plugin to update pages. Or if Extra ever comes out…..? Archive and category pages would be great. Also, would love option to create blog style with background color and post in white box if that makes any sense-lots of sites out there with one column, white post boxes, quote posts with background image, and gray or black background. Control for post type styling would be nice.

    Slider is hard to work with.

    Better control over mobile like padding, and certain text disappearing in mobile view.

    Please allow us to change footer credits text without having to code or purchase plugin-true drag and drop….and easy child theme creation.

    Overall, agree with the comments about color and typography control. Text styling options on full width headers, slider and headings, h1 etc. would be great without all the custom CSS.

    Again, I love Divi and all that it offers, but hey, you asked. If you could give us the same builder and options that we have for pages for the blog with typography/color/image control, wouldn’t see much reason for another theme….but wait the Divi plugin is coming…..opens up a whole new world of possibilities. Yay!!!!! Oh, and please just get it out there. All that with Bloom and Monarch, what a winner!!! Even if I had to wait for more icons, header and footer options, etc. would be well worth it…..yeah, I know, it’s a lot to ask but….

    Thanks for all your hard work.

  204. I enjoy creating websites with this theme and going in and changing the css is part of the fun, but i would like to see some native controls for the column sizing
    -more than 4 columns sometimes needed.
    -more header logo and navigation link options. boxed links, links separated by a single line.
    -MULTIPLE APIs. ( i would like to generate individual APIs for each site. i don’t like that if i put the API on a site for a client my “master” is exposed and could just be re-used forever by anyone who has it) I think they should be single use and be able to be canceled.
    -fonts
    -more icons
    -page layout for posts
    and of course anything to increase page loading speed

    Thanks

  205. Oh. And can you have it support SQRL from GRC. Im not sure when this is coming out but if it would be good to use it. Grc.com/sqrl/sqrl

  206. 1. It would be great not to have the page title in the blog / page text so we can add our own headline at the size we want.

    2. Full page single module capability so a full page video can be inserted without any backend coding needed.

    3. In regards to the time schedule request, maybe some type of accuity scheduling mod???

    4. Im not to sure if you have been following the rainmaker platform development. It is really poor in responsiveness but that may give you some ideas on what to do like;

    – a dashboard that will allow you to see metrics and page views.

    – if it is a membership site to be able to see transaction summaries.

    5. Some type of profile page that is not the default wordpress look. Dont know if that is out of scope.

    Love what you have done and thanks in advance for everything.

  207. I have 3 I would love to see
    Svg logos please please please
    Use brick.im instead of Google’s font,third uses Google Fonts but such fantastic ligatures and hinting
    Child Themes or explain ideal way to use Divi so it is safe after an upgrade

    Thanks good luck and I am especially looking forward to extra

  208. Two things:
    1. ability to turn off the delete “x” of the content blocks in the page builder so that clients can’t accidentally delete a layout content block.

    2. ability to have “clean” code when exporting the WP content for a different theme.

  209. 1. Different logos for mobile and desktop would be great.

    2. More customization options for locations of logo, navigation, social media icons (for example in header).

    3. It would be great if the visual editor in the text module could be modified in a way that clients would see only the customized styles (from the style sheet) in the styles/format drop down.

    Keep up the great work!

  210. Ability for a nav menu to be transparent with header image behind it. Right now I can do it with CSS but it’s a pain.

    Also, ability to hide top-header when scrolling down and having header be fixed.

  211. Not customizer related, but my biggest complaint trying to dive into using ET themes (like Divi) is that although you have fantastic tutorials and demos, you don’t have very good documentation on using the PSD files that you include. It would be much easier if instead of multiple PSD files for different SIZES, you could have one file, for the biggest size, then include an “Action” that would resize and save all the different sizes and name the filenames accordingly.

    Customizer related: I want ability to modify the footer content color. It seems to be the only main section that doesn’t have a color setting???

  212. 1. Commas in the numbers that appear in the counters.

    2. More animated charts and graphs!

  213. Some other suggestions:

    – I would like to be able to put IMAGES instead of text in the menu buttons of choice.

  214. One suggestion: it could post the code of any autoresponder.I am that they have a plugin that does this job but still is only for autoresponders most recognized. If you could put a box in the template and place the coidigo type there optimezpress be great. They are doing an excellent job

  215. 1. Allow that the default website width of 1080px might be modified to 960px or other values.

    2. Adjustable position of logo and other elements in headers.

    3. Height, width, padding and margin of modules should be adjustable, so we can freely make our own layouts.

    4. Fully and separately customizable fonts for header, footer and body.

    5. Customizable appearance of navigation and menus.

    6. Add more social media icons, with several icon appearance options.

  216. I would like to see an option for some kind of custom visual distinction between blog posts, like a line with the option to change color, spacing, point size and so on.

  217. Just quickly, I would like to see the buttons have more variety. I know instantly when I see a divi site somewhere on the web because of the call to action button style on the slider. It’s a dead give away.

    Cheers

    • Good idea Robert. I will see about adding a Button section to the WordPress Customizer.

      • Absolutely – upvote for this!!

      • yes!! more buttons please

        • Ditto!

      • Awesome! I agree that more button options would be a huge improvement.

  218. It would be great to be able to customize the size of featured images in the Blog module (they are really too big for my taste). I haven´t found any option to do that, so I suppose it´s not possible in current Divi version.

    • So you don’t want them to go full width? Or are you referring to the height of the image?

      • Probably too late for comment, but a bit +1 on this. I’ve had to use modified CSS in the ePanel to alter the size of the featured image.

        Our “projects” are not visual in nature, so it makes no sense to have to come up with some generic image that is so predominantly displayed as the biggest item on the page that draws in people’s eyes.

        I’d love to be able to pick from the set of existing icons to use as a “featured” image and be able to control the size of the icon. This way I can call attention to the text and description of the actual project, and not have to worry about some huge generic image eating up all the screen.

      • I want them to go full width!

        • A solution like this would be good.

  219. How about the option to send the footer to the vertical navigation menu for a cleaner look and the possibility to add a widget or two on that section

  220. I would like to see an editor specifically for the footer, or an easy way to come up with different designs in much the same way the page builder is done.

    • Hi Tom. We are adding column options to the footer, so if you combine those with widgets you can make just about anything 🙂

      • Why don’t you treat the footer as a page? Add a footer template.

        We can use the the same Divi tools and assign any footer page to any page. That not only solves the formatting but allows you to use different footer for different pages.

        Nothing stopping you to supply a default old fashinoed footer page…

  221. A listings plugin would be great (like a business directory) as ones I have tried don’t particularly like your great theme.

  222. 1. Custom Excerpt: Enable the use of a “custom excerpt” field in Posts to over-ride the 192 character limit for automated feeds that drive abbreviated write-ups. Allow ability to add images for custom fields
    2. Page Layout for Posts: Allow for a full-width page option for post types – no sidebar
    3. Widgets: Allow for more widget options/selections in sidebar
    4. Number/Bar Counter – allow for display with or without a special character (i.e. %, ms, etc)
    5. Media organization using folders
    6. Easy way to adjust height and padding on modules
    7. Blurb Module – abilty to vary font size/alignment for text in module

    • 1-What would be cool is a save and publish button in modules that would save modules settings and page at the same time so one less step to preview results.

      2-Resizeable module boxes and floating save button (like the one in revolution slider layer editor) would save a lot of scrolling and window closing for the poor small laptop user like me.

      3- An automatic function to have all modules stuck together with no space or margin without having to mess with css. (vertically and horizontaly)

      4-A table module would be great.

      5-Floating widget module

      The best theme will be even better!

    • When will the new version released ?

  223. Suggestions:
    (disclaimer – if im repeating whats already in the update or in this thread, im sorry – wow! what a long list of ET fans!)

    1: Allow for the IMAGE MODULE to position images left, right or center.
    2: Allow for Sliders and Sections to Have 2 Background Images – for more parallax creativity and/or to add special effects (color screens, motion graphics, etc)
    3: Add a “full width” option to image modules – so images can expand the entire width and height of section.
    4: And… biggest request: Add RETINA code to the theme – so we can just upload @2x images and have everything working on retina display devices.

    The new update… this is why I work exclusively with you Nick and the great ET team… despite anything negative you read or hear, I have NOTHING bad to say. My ET designs have been awarded and showcased on Webby Awards, Awwwards, and CSS Nectar and frankly I give you 50% of the credit. Thanks for all you do to make us designers look great. Congratulations on your latest efforts.

  224. Here are a number of items I’ve had to get CSS code to do in the past. It would be great if these were incorporated into your theme without having to insert special code:

    Ability to insert padding between grid and carousel portfolio images (in your demo, it looks like you may have done this already?) Even with CSS code I received from Divi support, I think the appearance of my portfolio is lacking at http://goodcopyfast.com/portfolio

    Ability to make images that accompany blurbs consistent sizes without having to resize the images or insert special code.

    Ability to change font colors, such as the color of the font in the portfolio title.

    Ability to change color of the magnifying glass/search icon.

    Ability to remove author and date from page search results.

    Ability to change color of the titles that appear on pages within the site.

    Ability to choose whether or not to display the title that appears on pages within the site.

    Ability to adjust logo height (I think you’re already adding this).

    Ability to type in a website title and subtitle instead of a logo.

    Ability to change header color.

    More icons!!!! For example, a spiral, a handshake, etc.

    Ability to not display logo.

    Ability to make the words in a slider do this cool effect, shown here: http://www.roxmedia.com/

    Thanks for listening!

  225. Ditto to several of the suggestions above: I would like to see the option to have the menu as a module, so we could place it lower on a page if desired. For instance, some clients want a header much like some of your other themes, with a big graphic on top and then a simple text menu underneath. Along with making the menu a module, I’d love to have a simple one-click to turn the built-in menu off.

    • Hi Daniel. There is already a Menu Module actually, and it works as you describe as far as I can tell 🙂

      • Hi Nick,

        At present, the Menu Module doesn’t include the logo (or at least the option to include a logo) which has presented problems when creating different landing pages.

        Some landing pages need a limited menu (as opposed to no menu), but having the logo present is still important.

        Thanks for all the hard work you all do!

        • +1 being able to include a logo in the Menu module is needed.

      • Don’t forget to make the menu module to have a unique ID. At present you cannot differentiate it from the other menus or use multiple menus that needs customisation indipendantly. It is a simple code change, but important.

  226. Hey Nick…. After the DIVI plugin is done I was thinking we need a NEW and great plugin just for POPUPS.

    A fully responsive, easy to use, plugin to display content the BLOOM plugin is not for.

    WordPress is lacking a GREAT plugin for this and I know the people at elegantthemes can really do one up good.

  227. Hello Nick,
    very nice to ask us, if we have some proposals for the Divi Theme! Hopefully not for the Version 2.4, because 3 weeks to go for the launch is a very short time :- )

    Yes, we have something, but do not want to go to each detail.

    First: Would be nice, to see a Demo Version of 2.4 first, this will make it a little bit easier for new proposals.

    1) Shortcodes should be revised completely, as an example: Flat Buttons
    2) The Customization board should be revised completely, the old version from the very fist beginning of Elegant Themes is very poor for today.

    All other details have already been mentioned before.

    And please, what all your customers need is: not every 2 weeks a Theme Sneak Peek, what we need is a clear roadmap with clear timelines. Otherwise it is not possible to plan and realize projects.

    Many thanks in advance and wish you all the best,
    WFF96

  228. It would be great if the logo at the top could be made just a little bit bigger, it seems you need a magnifying glass to appreciate a logo

    • Logo height options area already integrated into 2.4 🙂

  229. Hello Nick,

    Sounds great. If you haven’t already thought of it, another extremely valuable feature would be the ability to update a saved layout and choose to automatically update any pages using that layout.
    This would make it possible to tweak a layout that is used by hundreds of pages without having to reload the newly modified layout manually from each page.
    Is this also in the works or a possibility?

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    • We have something like this planned that isn’t yet announced. But let’s just say that you will be able to do exactly what you are asking for 🙂

  230. Suggestion:

    1. Transparent menu so it looks like it is a part of the home slider (this is a trend in web design and It is hard to believe you do not have this)

    2. Full screen sliders (another trend in web design)

    3. Ability to add more than 4 columns in any row (including footer)

    4. Ability to add Overlay semi transparent white or black color layer to images when they are us a a row background. (Right now I have to edit my images in photoshop to add a overlay color so the text can be better read) I

    5. Visual composer (I think this is a too much to ask but for beginners it will be great if they can see live how their site is looking)

    6. More shortcodes built into the divi module.

    Thanks,
    Javier

    • Working on transparent menu right now! Should be ready for launch.

      As for a front end editor, this is something we plan to tackle in Divi 3.0!

  231. Can’t wait for new release when??? I’m waiting for granular settings for all the modules color, sizes, animation off by default, Google map colors choices and more pins. My list
    1. A new table module
    2. icon pack that can be added to any element including menus
    3. the code module mentioned by so many
    4. Basic subscribe form that uses your designated email for people
    that don’t need the whole marketing campaign integration

  232. Having the ability to adjust the height of the full width slider would be great!

    • You will be able to adjust the height of individual sliders, and adjust the default height of new slider modules (and every other module for that matter!)

  233. I would love to be able to copy or drag repetitive modules from page to page. I do a lot of events and the sponsor strips at the bottom are a nightmare since the logos dribble in up to the last minute. Right now I have to add them by hand. (Or, maybe a “Save this Row” feature so I can update in one place – and it will update all the pages.)

    Example:
    http://stotesburycupregatta.com

    • Hi Tracy. We have something planned for 2.4 that is going to save you a ton of time in that area!

  234. 3/2 matrix layout or blurbs

    I couldn’t find a layout in divi builder that provides me 3/2 blurbs layout.

    for example, 3 blurbs in one row and 2 blurbs (in the center and of same size as that of the above 3 rows) in th second row.

  235. SHORT KEYS.
    Such as Esc to exit the builder, etc.

    VIDEO POSITIONING IN SLIDERS/backgrounds
    The current video backgrounds occupy the full video width and height on the page. There should be an option to choose video positioning options such as “top center” “top left” “top right” “bottom right” “bottom left” “bottom center” “center center” “center left” “center right” of the video. By such options, the designer can choose a certain portion of the video to be visible in the background or in the slider of a respective section.

    The same with the slider. the videos occupy the entire width and height of the video. we can’t control the width and height easily using the builder. This should improve. For example, I have only a single TITLE that is placed on a background video. Now the problem is that I can’t fit the video to small size or play only a portion of the video in the background of the TITLE.

    • Short Keys isn’t something I have thought of before, thanks for the suggestion! It’s certainly outside the scope of “WordPress Customizer Options,” but perhaps we can think about this for Divi 3.0.

  236. The ability for coders to create modules (and share AND sell) using an ET API?

    • 1+

    • Ahhh, EXCELLENT IDEA!!

    • Sounds like a cool idea! We have lots of ideas around this, and we hope to build a stronger community around Divi in the near future. Once the Divi Library is live, such a community would be much more useful.

      Perhaps we can even sync modules to the cloud and share them with each other from our dashboards 🙂

      • Sounds great. Thanks Nick.

  237. 1. Change sliders and headers height easily
    2. Mega menus with pictures
    3. Child theme
    4. Sliders with more options like slider revolution
    5. Chage buttons colors easily
    6. Forms with more options like contact form 7

    I have a DIVI and WordPress course in spanish here: http://www.cursowordpress-online.com

    Por si a alguien le intersa aqui hay un curso de DIVI y WordPress en espanol: http://www.cursowordpress-online.com

    Anyway Divi is realy amazing!! Congratulations!!!!

  238. The ability to have more than 4 columns in a section. Sometimes if I want 6 icons on the same row, it would be nice to be able to do that without writing a bunch of CSS.

  239. about the header… just enable it to be organized with the builder!

    • and for the footer too.

  240. Love all the suggestions. Mine is a simple one. How about something that RESTRICTS features?

    1. We do a lot of customization behind the scenes for branded sites that shouldn’t allow users to change certain things (colors, fonts, etc.). Much easier to enable/disable things than add a bunch of overriding with css !important

    2. If I’m not using woocommerce why not provide the capability to remove the styles, functions, scripts and other associated data for it?

    Mobile users would especially benefit from this as it reduces bloat, bandwidth and page load.

    Keep up the great work!

    • +1! Fully agree.

  241. Awesome suggestions. I’d like:

    1) The ability to toggle the visibility of a ‘loaded’ section (hide) or a configured module within a section, instead of having to delete & rebuild, or copy & scrub, or move elsewhere and then move it back.

    2) A few more built-in slider styles.

    3) Sticky menu option.

    4) Flexible column width, like Elegant Builder has, or convenient margin/padding adjustments.

    5) When duplicating a module, have it appear immediately below the one being duplicated, rather than at the end of the layout.

  242. My Suggestions:
    1. Option to hide top header.
    2. Option to change Footer credits
    3. Option to place Logo at Different Positions (Left, Right, Center)
    4. Option to place Image Any where we Want. by default Image will be placed at left side of column, give option to place image at Left, Right, Center.
    5. Option to change logo size in header.

  243. Hi, great news this update of the Divi!
    It would be great if there was an option in theme settings that allow or prevent the free movement and deletion of page builder modules according to user roles levels. Customers often make a mess in the page builder and prevent them from moving and deleting modules help enough. It would be interesting if there was also an option to disable or enable the “Use the standard Editor” button on the page builder, because customers often click this button and lose all the created page.

  244. 1) A way to have modules shared between pages. To insert a module as I customized it on another page, and to be able to change it across all pages in a blink of an eye.

    2) An option to make the floating side navigation have words, icons or both. The dots help nobody.

    3) EVENTS!!!!!!!!! I’m sick of fighting a 3rd party calendar plugin to attempt to work. I would pay you handsomely to create your own event plugin that plays well with divi.

    4) List view for blogs. For some more technical sites, I need to simply have a list of subject lines and dates that take up the least amount of room.

    5) Max size option for images. Some divi sites I hand over to a rookie, and they end up having a thumbnail the size of a bus.

    I’m giving you this feedback because I care. Keep up the awesome work!

  245. Great job, I am so excited for this release!!!!

    You guys are fabulous 🙂

  246. Select option to show/not show element when viewed in mobile view

  247. Your themes stand out from the crowd, but I feel that Elegant themes place much too much emphasis on Blogging posts and not enough on site pages.
    I have not used Divi because everything appears to clunky and large. I would need control over all aspects of size and space of the Divs, as with Dreamweaver, before I switch.
    Thank you for this opportunity

  248. Also, more design flexibility/user customization for WooCommerce design!

  249. Just wondering if it would be possible to utilize the boxed content width updates but still have the full screen capabilities for navigation bars, sliders, etc. at the top?

  250. ****Breakpoint layout options for mobile tablet and desktop.****

    It would be incredible to be able to select a completely different layout and content for the device that is viewing it. Mobile in general needs customization and tweak settings.

  251. So exciting! You asked for it and it looks like you are receiving your next 3 years worth of ideas haha— I would LOVE to choose the size of the blog index page and actual page feature image- either full width or thumbnail size- A lot of my client don’t know how to resize photos and after I build their blog their FULL width images on their blog pages look horrible- if it allowed the smaller image traditionally seen on blogs that would be a HUGE help!

    Thank you for your work!

  252. The ability to choose any font color aside from “Light” and “Dark”

    Custom Slider options

    -Custom slide transition

    -Size

    -Mobile friendly text size

    -Mobile friendly promo button for slides and in general.

    -The ability to have a background and text go over the background with a
    transparent option for the text background.

    The ability to have a boxed layout on a specific page and not the whole site.

    The ability to change the mobile menu font color and background color

    More font icons

    Icons for the main navigation

    Extra margin/padding on the sidebar. Often the text from the sidebar sits right on the divider line.

    2.4 – You guys should hire Luis Alejandre from Divi Children, Dan who created Divi Booster, and Geno Quiroz, Im sure these are more people likes this guys but they are a super awesome resource to our community.

    • I like your suggestion about Mobile text sizes. I think we can add an option to customize Mobile font sizes and section heights independently from the desktop version.

      Looking into it right now!

      • You guys are awesome and I can’t wait for 2.4!

  253. Congratulations Nick, new record in post, I am very impressed to see so many people. congratulations !!

  254. What I can come up with is:
    – More customisable contact module, additional fields, set obligatory fields and set custom message subject.
    – Make a slide on fullwidth slider clickable, now only option for a link is putting a button.
    – Calendar module that connects to google calendar.

  255. Hi,
    1. a way to decrease/increase easily all the margin-padding values of the different sections/modules.
    2. possibility to give a specific height to the pictures of a slider in order to resize proportionnally all photos and get them all on a nice row.
    3. possibility to add custom pictures instead of blurbs icon.
    4. possibility to get more colomns per row.
    Thanks

  256. The possibility to place an image with Lightbox-effect INTO a module, for example the accordeon, tab etc.

  257. Sorry if this has been mentioned before but there are 683 comments and I couldn’t read them all. I would like the ability to change font sizes for different devices. That is one font size for mobile, another one for tablets and another one for desktop. Also, more ad spaces and the ability to reorder items on mobile so that sidebar items do not always appear at the bottom.

    I understand that not all of this can be done in Customization but I thought I’d mention it anyway.

    • Thanks for the suggestions! I have seen a few people ask for mobile-specific control over font sizes and spacing, and I think it’s a great idea! I think we can add this to 2.4 before launch.

      • Nice that will be great!

  258. I would love to see a “comments module”, where recent comments can be displayed in various ways… avatars, round/square/sizes ect. Display X amount of words in the comment.

    I would also love to see a bbpress integration. To make Divi more community friendly.

    Can’t wait to se what you guys do next. Thanks.

  259. Thanks for asking! Would be great to be able to control social media icons through the cusyomizer,and also to have total control over fonts and colors (if we don’t already. sorry,brain is a little fried). And more layout options! And it will totally rock if you could give more control over the header – ability to have it scroll normally, and control over the resizing of the header elements! Pretty please!

    Thank you.

  260. A few things come to mind:
    1) Ability to control the padding between sections (common customization question in support forums) – either at a per page level or site wide level
    2) Add font size controls in the divi text editor
    3) Ability to add background colors to items like text boxes that don’t have these properties

  261. I forgot to mention up few missing basic features like:
    1. add what’sapp to social media options
    2. add option for vertical/horizontal menu module to section
    3. add option to use any wp widget as a module.

    Thanks again & Enjoy Life 🙂
    Ahrale

    • Yes, add What’s app to social items.

  262. Have Facebook, Twitter, G+ at top of page…

    Need the others… Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube

    THANKS!

  263. Some kind of “Safety Net” to avoid deletion of modules and such by accidentally clicking the “x”

    • I agree.

  264. Looks great to me

  265. BussyPress compatible pleaaaaaseeeee <3

    • aand bbPress compatible pls!

  266. i vote for:
    -easily resize logo in the default header layout (logo left, menu right) and then if you say increase logo size to height of 150px, the menu auto shifts to be centered vertically with the new height

    -change button colours individually (beyond theme accent colour) so being able to set text, outline, hover background, hover text

    -customize footer text

    -# of footer widgets

  267. I haven’t had time to read through all the posts and comments so someone might have already posted this but the slider section needs to be responsive as it is cropping the slider image depending on screen size which is very frustrating. Looking forward to the new updates thanks Nick.

  268. Slide image doesn’t move in Firefox – just comes in static. Works in Safari and Chrome. My little skateboarder should slide in.

    http://www.dontrain.co.uk

    Thanks

  269. Please facilitate the slider image and link showing on mobile phones. Currently just the background picture shows and slide title. Even it it has to be static – see example below where skateboarder should come in.
    http://www.dontrain.co.uk

    Same on this website

    Thanks!

  270. Please facilitate the slider image showing on mobile phones. Currently just the slider background shows and slide title but not the link – if you could make this work that would be useful too but image is important even it it has to be static – see example below where skateboarder should come in.

    Thanks!

  271. Oh… and customise the footer text.

  272. – Use Font Awesome icons in Blurbs
    – Ability to expand / collapse sections in the builder.
    – Ability to save sections to the library so they can be imported later. Right now I have to save the whole page, load that into a temp page, delete unwanted sections, save what’s left and then import into another page.

    • I really, really, really hope the Font Awesome option for blurbs will be done.

    • Ability to save sections is something we are addressing with the new Divi Library 🙂

      • awesome !

  273. Hi,

    thanks for the hard work on Divi. Such a great theme! 🙂

    What I miss are more widget areas such for the 404 page and the header. With this functionality in mind you could customize all areas of the site. That would be great.

    Thanks a lot,
    Alex

  275. An extension of the video slider with the possibility to add extra information on the video’s and the possibility to show the videos in a larger pop-up screen

  276. Totally agree that page builder functionality for the header and footer would be a great addition. Also to be able to set the main navigation menu to full width.

  277. More control over the blog, much in the same way you can control the design on standard pages. The diversity of the design seems more restricted on the blog as opposed to other areas. Would be good to have more control so each Divi blog section can look completely different (if so desired).

  278. Being able to have different galleries that open into a lightbox would be a BIG plus.

  279. This may have already been mentioned, did not read all of the comments. I would like to have more font options. Specifically, at a minimum, I’d like to be able to define one font for heading, one for the menu, and one for the body. Thanks!

  280. Ability to customise footer – number of widgets, text colour, height.

  281. The option to add text instead of logo would be great! It’s a must-have feature in every theme 🙂

  282. How about better integration of for instance the contact form 7 plugin? So you can style the elements so they match with divi (i know this is possible now, but it would be could that it would be integrated with the sliders as the animation in this post shows.

    Also support for multiple columns in contact form 7 would be appreciated.


    I would like it if the DIVI theme also supports a (mail chimp/campaign monitor) template you can customize so your e-mail campaigns represent the style of the website.


    And the suggestions in this post are ALL appreciated of course 😉

    Keep up the great work, can’t wait for 2.4 version

    regards
    Lex

  283. I would like more control over header section – pleased to see that you are addressing that. Still need ability to separate Primary Menu from Logo. Ability to have no background so that browser background shows through.

    Ability to add shape, image or text boxes which user can control appearance of including adding text box to a shape box. Like to control background and text in text boxes (add background colour/image and remove background entirely).

    In Divi page builder – thumbnails of the different layout options.

    Open Source documentation so site builders can contribute to each other quickly.

    I’ve built 2 sites with Divi and almost love it!

  285. Hi team, i really love you. And I’m very excited to hear this for second time.
    Its very important to take suggestions from us, very valuable. Thank you.

    Divi is a great tool to make amazingly wonderfull websites. 🙂 You are perfect, it really changed my web design life.

    I only want two thing for myself. I really need it on Divi:

    – There is a good mapping system on Divi now. But i think you can add categorized pins, or layers, and it can become a great mapping system. I really need this. If you can do something about that, it can be better than EXPLORER Theme. I have a whole project on this. If you make it. so much people get advance of it.

    – Better buddypress integration.

    I thank to you with my heart.

    Best regards,
    Alper

  286. Better integration with woocommerce, with stand alone shop customization options!!!

  287. More columns
    Fine column size controls
    Type leading and para space controls
    Ability to globally control toggle box, set to open on desktop/close on mob.
    Padding controls
    Option to change ‘project’ to something else to make relevant permalinks.
    More menu options as in ubermenu
    Option to turn on/off functions/elements/display etc. on mobile

    Many said already. And many thanks for great job thus far.

  288. a recurring countdown timer for the timer module.

    useful for restarting automatically a discount every 24 hours as an example

  289. Hello,

    I love Divi to create corporate sites and I commend you for your great work and willingness to always improve.
    But what hurts me the most in this great theme is the blog layout that is frankly not great, so I would greatly appreciate to provide easily customize the blog section in order to make it even more attractive.

    Thank you in advance,
    Bruno

  290. I’ve only just started using Divi and it has a really nice feel about it but the page builder would really benefit from having the option to + and – the element width on the element window (i.e. 1/3 1/2 3/4 etc.) I had this in another builder and it’s so much quicker and more flexible than changing the entire layout?

    It would also be really great to be able to have a text / code option in the fullwidth module. I have been trying (without much success) to integrate third party sliders and Adobe Edge animations. Obviously the ability to embed Edge AOM files would be unbelievably cool! 🙂

    Multiple layers in the fullwidth slider would be nice so you can animate separate text and images (not to mention timing / movement controls.)

    Good work folks. When’s the update coming – can’t wait… 😉

    • Hi Kevin,

      We have something planned that will address the column structure change. Basically, you can turn any column layout into any other layout type without having to create a new row and drag all of your modules into it!

      Also, fullwidth code modules is on the way 😉

  291. I love DIVI’s design elements and use it on several sites but I hate the Elegant “builder”. I prefer a drag n drop builder like BeaverBuilder and VisualComposer.

    If DIVI came with a drag n drop builder like BeaverBuilder and templates like it has, then I could stop having to use it and use pure Elegant DIVI instead!

  292. To improve the galleries of images. Thanks…

  293. I tend to add the most asked for hacks to my site http://www.divithemeexamples.com/divi-theme-resources/ so I guess anything on there has been repeatedly requested (mostly in one of the Divi FB groups) … again, common requests have been built into plugins such as the divi booster and Divi module editor, so anything in there would be a common request. Very much looking forward to what Divi 2.4 will bring and seeing the cool websites it will be used to build…:)

    • it’s an interesting site mate ,, keep it up 😉

  294. Hi,

    I would recommend the ability to add a second button on the slider, and also the possibility to add custom post types and searches.

    Thanks,

    Chris

  296. If you get this far down the list:
    I’d be happy to see many of the suggestions above built as additional plugins or a child extension pack, I also wouldn’t mind paying a little extra for it as it would save some considerable time for me, this way the core theme could be kept smaller and the extras could be applied to your other themes too.

  297. This seems like a “no brainer” but in text editing mode (versus visual editing mode) on the “Text” module, display the WordPress default edit icons (bold, link, etc.).

    I would also appreciate a Divi parameter to set the default maximum site width (in pixels) and the default sidebar width (as a percentage).

  298. Greater navigation bar flexibility. Logo to be re-sizeable and positioned left, centre and right. Ability to have Navigation overflow above the main navigation links in the top right corner. Mainly used for things like News/Careers/Blogs etc. This helps to keep the main navigation as clean as possible.

  299. I’m a graphic designer here in Argentina. I don’t know a lot of web but I can see the future trends in web design, so I’ll give you my self-effacing opinion.

    ATENTION: please use the example links attached in some points to under stand:

    1) Transparent header, to let see the slider behind it. Example image: http://oi58.tinypic.com/33ojtpz.jpg

    2) Masonry portfolio

    3) Individual grid control to get narrowed text áreas (upcoming trend). Example image: http://oi59.tinypic.com/dpzi8p.jpg

    4) New Module: Fullwidth image/text. Example image: http://oi58.tinypic.com/w2ly89.jpg

    If you want keep in the design trends fight, those are the most important that I see coming!

    Best regards!

  300. I believe that insert into the page creation module an option for inserting a search bar that is customizable . you can change its size and dimensions. I work a lot with virtual and feel this shortage shops, even to find plugins with search bars . I believe that would be a breakthrough for all users who use the Divi for virtual shops .

  301. 1) One important thing is let us be able to make our own header menu style. Divi is limited to only one design type of the header menu. Let us be able to upload our own menu style.

    2) Let us upload custom button styles

  302. Floating text formating toolbar in text module as when you have long text you have to scroll up each time you want to make a formatting change

  303. Hi there, great Divi and great work 2.4 update.
    I’m sorry but I have no time to read all the interesting comments (I read only the first twenty).

    About Divi Slider: I would have more customization’s possibility, above all pixel height…

  304. Dying for a real Front end visual composer integration like the one by the Codecanyon. Or your own. Designing a website and not seeing in a real time what is done is the biggest brake. Having to publish first and then refresh the page just to see what happened is not good solution to build webpages fast.
    This solution http://www.mioweb.cz/ is interesting but it is only in Czech lanuage and lack of many functions… Just scroll down and look how they use front end visual composer.

    • Hi Marian,

      A front-end editor is our plan for Divi 3.0!

      • -That certainly would be cool!

  305. Wow!

    This looks awesome and I have been using Divi for many sites. The best template ever.

    One thing I always have wanted is a better way to handle fullwidth images, and headers. They do take to much space, so that endusers has to scroll down to se the content below.

    I allso want some way to compress the space between modules, they sometimes takes up to much whitespace as well.

    Keep it up!

  306. I’d suggest an ability to add custom module in the Page Builder.

    Right now, it is impossible to add new custom module without modifying the Theme’s javascript code, since the modules list is hard-coded into the script. Some action or filter might be useful for this.

  307. Most important thing is twitter bootstrap like grids or just add bootstrap.

    so we can have more than one jump from desktop to mobile.
    things like 4 columns for desktop 2 for tablet 1 for mobile or even 2 for mobile
    until divi has these feature it can hardly be called responsive.

    half responsive at best 😀

  308. That’s a lot of post. I havn’t read them all but here is what i really would like in DIVI:
    A possibilety to add rounded corners to all modules. And being able to how round they shall be in pixels.
    I love DIVI. :-).

  309. • total freedom of the font colour, especially in the slider, and not just black or white.

  310. On a website that uses a structure of 3/4 x 1/4 columns throughout multiple pages, I often get frustrated having to change the content of the 1/4 column regularly. Unfortunately the content cannot be used by a sidebar widget as I rather want to use the awesome Divi structure. Within the 1/4 column I have added countdown timers, and you can imagine how many times I need to change the times when it changes every month, over 10+ pages.

    My suggestion is to make a ‘default’ template builder page, and then within that you can change your content for that “locked” 1/4 column. After you have built this structure, you can save it with a name and select it for a page as you would choose a custom Template that you have created.

    This will make it a lot easier when changing content on 10+ pages, especially if you want to change the displayed content every month.

  311. Hello,

    I love Divi and use it all the time!

    I would love for there to be a way to save single modules and use them in other pages (like you can do with the page layouts).

    Thanks for all the hard work!

  312. • having the option to have the navigation background semi-transparent / or completely transparent and the header slider / picture visible below it

    • possibility to have no outer line of the slider

    • adding googlefonts and custom fonts easily

    • calendar module which is highly customizable regarding design (with every second website I need this and have to work with the plugin Events Manager whoch is ok, but it is a headache to customize because the look, as I’m not a hardcore programmer but more of a designer. (Of course this is something not quickly possible to programm, but maybe something worth for Divi 3.0. 😉 Sure lot of clients would be very happy about this.

    • Having the option to easily place Social Media Icons (Facebook, …) in the Navigation or on the very left or right of the page. Or even inbetween content.

    These are the most important ones to me. Divi 2.4 looks awesome!

  313. add the option to customize the height size of the header images in blog posts.

  314. Create the possibility to change the main colors and secondary color for each page

  315. More than four columns per row please.

  316. Hi Div 2.1 is an excellent theme – no doubt about that. I do believe that its Slider is too inflexible. For instance, I do not like the default height of the slider and it does not have enough straightforward options to adjust its size. This needs improving in Div 2.4.

    Thank you.

    • plus, what’s essential to almost Any website;

      more control / customization options for the MENU

      the SLIDER doesn’t have any animating options, except the default one..?
      https://www.elegantthemes.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=409099

      add/remove fields / customization for CONTACT FORMS.
      actually; I really think ET should consider building a FORMS plugin at some point..

      * customization is a MUST for Divi, especially with the growing number of users, one might think if what they’re building will somehow look similar to a couple dozens more websites 🙂

  317. Simply. Love Divi.

    Please allow a background color in the text module.

    Please fix the issue with Google maps in tabs module.

  318. One more:

    The ability to add svg’s to the inbuilt icon set.

    Cheers,

    Shane

  319. Hi guys,

    I love a lot of the suggestions. Here are some of my favorites.

    1.) Module for code.
    2.) Nav menu sizing options.
    3.) Built in Child Theme option.
    4.) Make it easier to resize the sidebar and that it’s mobile friendly once resized.

    Thanks for all you guys do! It’s truly amazing!

  320. The ability to add fields to the contact form!!!

    Please if you are doing a major release this has to be in it.

    Cheers,

    Shane

    PS: I love Divi

  321. Hi guys.

    To add up on what was mentioned, I think divi is in deep need of a modular grid system module. A module where images/links can be added with possibility to modify the size of each (could be done automatically on image ratio) and display in different sizes without padding. Plus a nice overlay with data that can be added easily, and color changed accordingly

    Alternatively that could be a new display for the projects or another custom post type, but I’ve had lots of clients asking for something displaying this way (lots of people are looking at The Grid project and get inspired…)

    There should also be a functionality to display customers content on the overlays of the project carousel module, that has been requested a lot of times as well but requires quite heavy editing.

    Finally, I think full support for svg is indispensable since it’s slowly becoming the standard. That includes easy svg fallback for IE and older android version.

  322. Hi Nick, just wondering if this post should have come a month back. then you had time to work on integrating more of these points. I was hoping the Divi 2.4 and Extra will launch by May 3rd week (your one month promise!)

    However, here’s what I would suggest additional to seriously cool suggestions above…

    Full DIVI integration with BuddyPress – esp make your Customizer control everything on BuddyPress including design, colours, fonts, module placement with a mobile-responsive focus.

  323. More flexibility with the category selection for the Filterable Portfolio module please. At the moment if you select a parent category for a filterable portfolio then the filter that displays on the resultant portfolio only shows the parent category, not all of the child categories. The alternative is to tick each of the child categories in the module but then, as you add categories over time, you have to keep adding them to the module! Same for the Blog Module please.

    Doing this would make Projects so much more useable for managing various sets of data.

    Thanks.

  324. Divi is great. It would be extremely useful to have an dotted overlay feature for the image/video slider. To help contrast text.

  325. I’d love the option to make h tags take font sizes of other h tags (e.g. A title has an h1 tag, but has the appearance of a h2 tag).

    I’d also love CSS options similar to those in Design Palette Pro.

  326. There are a lot of comments, so I’m assuming you might have already gotten these suggestions, but I’ll make them anyway.

    I would love the following:

    1) The ability to shorten or lengthen the synopsis size
    2) The ability to change size of the Featured image
    3) Have an ad spot under the left navigation area if you so choose
    4) Easier customization of product thumbnails and thumbnails for projects & portfolio

    Thank you!

  327. Please do not neglect the Maps Module. It would be very helpful if we will have the ability to:
    1. Change the Drop Pin Colors
    2. Substitute the Drop Pin Image with our custom-made Drop Pins (PNGs)
    3. Change the map size and width

    It will also be very helpful if we can Nest Modules:
    1. Add the maps module inside a Blurb or Text Module
    2. Add an Image Module inside Tabs
    3. Add Tabs inside Text Modules….. etc.

    Well… you know what I mean 🙂

    • I searched and didn’t see it at the time, but how about the ability to lock the map at a particular zoom so it doesn’t zoom when trying to scroll past it.

      On some screens, it seems almost impossible to get past a map!

      • Yeah, that’s true! Whenever I’m scrolling and there’s a map, the browser stops to finish the Zooming in or waits for me to click somewhere else before I can continue scrolling up/down.

  328. A true “dark” theme option. You can get close with the current customizer settings but too much is hard coded to be a bright white them. If you want to build a white-text on black-backgrounds site, it’s just too clunky right now.

    I forgot to say on my last comment, but I too LOVE Divi – regardless of any slight frustrations its been a dream to work with and I can’t wait for the updates!

    • Thanks for the suggestion Greg. It sounds like we should add the ability to customizer the default “light and dark” text colors, as well as add a new option to adjust the default content BG color.

      • The problem with Divi now is that you have hardcoded a lot of the elements’ colour foreground or background.

        This means the background option in theme customiser either cannot work (blog grid view) or creates unusable output (headers on grey backgrounds as your h1-h6 is hard coded to grey!).

        ALL backgrounds should be transparent and all text elements should follow the customiser text colour setting.

        This is really not a feature request but a bug removal request.

      • +1 on this! A dark theme would be nice, but if it were easier to specify font colors of all parts and change the content area background it would not be necessary.

  329. I would love to see a calendar/events module with different views, etc.

    • Yes! Calendar Events Module with different views!!!!

    • Could’t read all of the hundreds of comments, so maybe my suggestions appear elsewhere:

      – a customizer option to define a custom color palette. You typically use the same colors all over the page (e.g. backgrounds, highlight color, marking good/bad options in the content, CTA colors, blurb icon color …) and every time have to put the hex code in manually. Would be much easier using a predefined color palette.

      – a calendar module which can be fed by Google calendar.

      – an option to edit/overwrite saved pagebuilder-layouts

  330. I dunno if this has been addressed already (almost 600 comments above this one…eek!) but the only real feature I would *love* to have is:

    …the ability to build a layout in the builder, with a shortcode for post content, save that layout and have Divi use it as the default post layout. So that users could write and publish posts like normal, without having to interact with the builder, and WP just uses the pre-defined layout and inserts the post content into it.

    Basically, the ability to build a default post template with the builder.

    • Interesting idea. In theory, what types of things would you be adding above and below your post content that you would want to appear on every post on your site?

      • I support this one as well. Would be nice if we could use it for a number of various pages/CPT’s. For example: WooCommerce products, and the WooCommerce Shop page. It would be sweet if we could build one template, then have all products displayed the same (with options like how many related products–it’s ridiculous that it’s stuck at 2–or whether or not to include a sidebar).

      • I vote this one. DATA shouldn’t be in the design. If you as administrator manage the website for Editor users I believe your users want simplicity. It would be excellent if DIVI as framework give the power of MVC and users roles/permissions more granularity. How to? Plugins is the answer. Themes shouldn’t mess with your DATA but they can be prepared to understand Plugins. And these should present your data with current theme, even if the theme is white and black without css or javascript, no bells and whistles. On the other hand the theme will give all the shine to your webapp, not only website as it might be viewed by other protocols, applications and devices.
        I imagine this a very hard project to achieve but shouldn’t it be the way? 🙂

      • Yes, I agree. It will be a “post template”. With this feature it will not be necessary to place widget areas on the blog posts. You will just have to create a template with the builder.

      • YES very interesting. Endusers should not have to use the builder at all.

  331. Buddy press integration please!

    Would it be possible to design the same type of drag and drop page builder with the buddypress template pages (member profiles, group pages, activity, etc.)?

    • Yes, Just make it compatible with BuddyPress! I mean… it’s not hard for us to tweak… but you guys always give it that ET touch.

  332. Please move the ADMIN LABEL for modules next to or directly under the TITLE area. It’s annoying and a time waste to scroll down to the bottom of every module area to edit the ADMIN LABEL.

    Thanks for the updates – We love Divi as it is although we’re excited about the additional efficiencies that we’ll have with 2.4!

    • Thanks for the suggestion Jonathan. It sounds like you use the admin label quite heavily, but I think the average user will use the admin label option less often than the other default options within the module, which is why we put this towards the bottom.

      Anyone else care to chime in?

      • Ditto

      • Well you can look at it both ways Nick.

        Here’s a suggestion sir, how about if and when a ‘title’ for the Blurb etc is entered then that automatically overwrites the “Admin” label? The same way a new Slide automatically takes what is used for the “Heading”…

        That way even if people don’t normally bother to change this the page will still make more sense for them when returning to edit something.

        • One good things is that we have integrated a priority system into the new Divi Builder, which would make it very easy to re-order these options in your child theme 🙂

          • …Except we’d rather not use a child theme, if possible.

            Here’s an idea: for all modules that have a “title” field, just display that in the page builder, unless we alter the Admin Label default. That would save us a bunch of time copy/pasting the title into the admin label. Then we’d only be using the Admin label on a few modules like Text that don’t have the title field…. Would still be nice if it was up at the top on those ones though.

          • Cool! 😀 😀 😀

      • I always use the Admin label and I don’t think it’s a problem for it to be at the bottom.

        I’ve kind of memorized the placement of the options within each module and having that at the bottom makes it the last stop on my mental checklist as I’m entering content.

        • OMG Yes please move this! It is super annoying. Once you have more than 5-10 modules you have to start using labels big time.

      • I’d agree – once page gets big enough and uses lots of the same module types (lots of Blurbs for instance) I’ll go in and update the admin label, and I agree it’s a bit annoying to have to scroll through each one to the bottom to get it updated. Or if I make a mistake, or need to change how it’s worded, etc. Not a huge deal but yeah I’d upvote this. 🙂

      • Never used the Admin Label ..

        • I always use the admin label, and scrolling is a pain.

      • Yeah, this would be handy to have. Can be a pain to scroll down every time to edit it.

      • Definitely looking for that! It’s more on the client side that it comes tricky, if you wanna make everything clear for a client, you have to label just about everything. People don’t use this feature much precisely because it’s low on the module. I believe it is a small UX issue that could save designers and clients lots of time and headache finding out which is which.

        Alternatively the one feature it misses is the ability to copy the title of the module automatically in the admin name area.

  333. Here’s my 2 cents:

    Multicolored Navgation Menu option – ability to customize the navigation bar with individual colours – for example, Home is white text in a solid red tab, contact – is white text on a blue tab etc. etc.

    -ability to set the opacity or focus of images on slider modules. It’s not always easy to get text to show up on some images

    That’s it – awesome product that keeps getting better. Thanks!

    • “-ability to set the opacity or focus of images on slider modules. It’s not always easy to get text to show up on some images”

      +1 to this!

  334. I already thought Divi was amazing! It’s changed my life but the new release is gonna change it again — woohoo!!

  335. Hi, I’d like to see the the customisation functionality like Akal Multipurpose WordPress Theme. This is awesome for non coders as you can change individual heading colours and styles along with button colours to hex codes etc You can alter the menu style and orientation and so much more. I know some you can do with Divi already but the theme mentioned takes it to a new level.

  336. More control over typography (size, color, additional fonts, etc.) would be great.

    More full-width modules.

    More options in the slide module.

    A short-code that lets you adjust the size of the font in regular text without having to do it using CSS.

    If the text widget in the footer area had some built-in controls, similar to those at the top of where you enter text in a page or post, that would be awesome!

    But more than anything else — I know you want it perfect and there’s a long list of wishes here, but please don’t wait 6 months before you release this, now that you’ve got us all excited about it. I’ve already promised a client something I can’t do in the present version and I don’t want to make her wait forever for it.

  337. I would like to see category.php and single.php management tools. As it stands now those two files no longer exist in Divi, and programatic control of layout for category page and post pages is nearly impossible.

    While I really appreciate much of what Divi offers, the lack of control of category views and post control is problematic.

    Divi should support these views with the builder functionality.

  338. Please provide us the following updates:

    – Ability to change the button/text color & style of slider with ease instead of coding.
    – Ability to change the wording of the footer with ease instead of coding.
    – Include Pinterest, Linkedin as a social media follow.
    – Allow more fields for contact form.
    – Allow zoom function when viewing images in gallery mode.
    – Allow changes to the TOP Header Email/Phone number style
    – Allow change in slider height

    That’s all I can think of now. Hope to see some of this request implemented.

    • What kind of style options are you looking for with the phone number and email address areas?

      • It would be great to insert a link to contact page with clicking on the phone or e-mail.

      • For @ in email addresses should be altered with some javascript animations.

        especially because showing @ for emails in the pages will also effect the SEO.

        something like only phone icon and when hovered the email will appear (by default the @email will stay in hidden state).

        The same with Telphone and others. by doing so, we can add more space for other items such as skype, whatsapp etc to the navigation bar and many other places

  339. Hi I have different suggestions,

    1. Modules for different businesses, e.g. for a video based educational website, course module that displays all courses contents etc like lynda.com
    And similarly modules for each business.

    2. Add options to customise whole layout including footer for individual designers as its a pain doing same routine for each and every website, creating child themes. Why don’t you give a child theme along with and option to make changes to it in divi settings.

    3. Looks of all DIVI looks same. Allow customisation to a even larger extent, like I remember DRUMBEAT software that allowed me to place any element anywhere on page just like you would be able to draw on paper. This gives flexibility in designing and what’s in photoshop can reflect exactly on website. I mean free form flow of layouts.

    4. Its a pain that customisation and divi settings etc all are seperate, cant we Integrate all settings under one title itself, where you can change all aspects of layouts.

    5. Changing colors and selecting colors via css can be made using color wheel. Also if you can add color wheel into layout to select color combinations it would be a great help.

    6. Many things don’t work on touch screen Androids when editing website on a tab. Please rectify those problems, its fun to edit websites on tabs anywhere.

    7. Add fonts selection.

    8. Add visitor counters, etc small modules for easy access and implementation without running for plugins that are needed frequently.

    9. Integrating stock images selection from inside divi would be fantastic with additional charges for such an option.

    10. Why not instead have a DIVIS own stock library where DIVI community can upload images so others can use without any copyright issues.

  340. I’m really struggling with the leading/line spacing on header styles – most seem to be set to single, which looks really ugly. Would love for this to be easy to change. I’m assuming you’re also allowing us to adjust the depth of slider and heading depths with this new update.
    Also with the ePanel social media buttons that you currently have for Facebook and Twitter & Google+ – can we please also have for LinkedIn, Pinterest, Instagram & YouTube? Thanks.

  341. Great to see that your team is still updating Divi.
    One problem that I have with Divi is the Slider.
    Maybe make some options or setting that we can finally make the slider to display properly without being cut off or resized.

    The row height and section height would be a great addition, if it’s added on the Page builder so we can define the height for each individual row and section, it would be excellent.

  342. First of all – this is looking very promising. Thank you for the update.

    The thing I find myself customising the most (with classes) is removing the padding with each section. I find there is too much padding above and below the content of each section. The ability to minimise this would be fantastic.

    Kind regards,
    Clint

  343. My only request is for a little control of the placement of ads in the epanel under the Ad Management tab.

    I really have no idea about programming and code, so if this place could have more options, that is something I’d really appreciate. Other than that I love Divi and Elegant Themes have really delivered on it!

  344. Divi is really geared towards Chillboys which is totally fine. But I’d like to see some more features for us funboyz out there.

  345. *****If their was one thing I really would like changed it is this..

    Every time the theme updated its takes away all my customized footer information and replaces it with the default Elegant Themes information. While I can see the advantage for Elegant Themes I really find this annoying and not very professional.

    • Mark – copy the footer.php to your child theme directory and make your changes there. Then theme updates won’t over write your updates.

  346. I’d love to see a logo placement editor and maybe the ability to add custom code to the header or a widget in the header.

  347. Really would like to be able to stream YouTube from the full length header with the option to auto start or not and with option to pause with one click to header.
    Also have the option to not show video header on mobiles with option to change for another element, either static header or perhaps something like Revolution slider.

  348. Excited about the new release!

    More control over the look of the blog pages, and the blog module. Right now the only options are one large picture with a bit of text underneath or grid format. Would love to have them listed with slightly smaller picture so I can see multiple posts on the screen.

    More ease with adding feature images – sometimes the get cropped, sometimes the entire picture is shown, sometimes the picture shows up sideways on mobile devices or when imported into Facebook.

    Video posts don’t always aren’t recognize properly with the jetpack plugin.

    Looking forward to being able to reduce the space between rows! Great job guys 🙂

  349. – Hover action options for images (like fade on hover, b&w on hover etc).
    – Ability to use CTA Modules in sidebar widget areas. i.e. Using a shortcode instead of html or a dedicated widget.

  350. I’m not a technical person, but love the ease of WordPress and especially Divi. I have built two sites using Divi and trying to override CSS and using child themes just to change footer colors, change the “Powered by WordPress” and those types of things would be great if those could be made easier to manage footer colors, default text, etc.

  351. More options for phone number placement in the header to make it more prominent. After all the point of the website is to get people to contact us.

  352. Although these may have been mentioned before (and my already be included in the new version), these are what would be important to my clients and myself.

    1. The ability to adjust the size and depth of the logo and the header section.

    2. the ability to add different content to the header, including a logo, text and widgets. It would be great if there could be different sections (left, center and right) to place different content into the header area.

    3. More functional sliders such as those offered on the Avada Theme. The ability to add layers and content, and adjust it’s positioning within the sliders as well as being able to adjust the size of the slider image.

    4. The ability to change the look of the navigation menu between text and different styles of buttons, as well as the color and size of the text and buttons.

    5. The ability to change the main color of the website background, as well as the ability to change the background colors of the different text and content modules and sections as well.

    6. Have a child theme automatically included along with the main Divi theme.

    7. Being able to (easily) use other fonts besides the heading and text fonts.

    8. The ability to easily change the margins and padding of specific elements via a user interface or easy CSS styling.

    9. The ability to change the styling and layout of blog posts, including the sizing of the images.

    10, the ability to make custom forms and being able to change the colors of the form elements.

    I’m sure I will think of more later, but these are my “Top 10”!

    Can’t wait to see the new Divi! Thanks for all your hard work!

  353. I want search bar to be included as module, including options to customize it. While we’re on that, how about module to create and customize form. Just a simple one would be ok. I just need the form to be in line with the theme.

  354. -Projects created with Divi Builder are similar to projects created with the Default Builder (location of titles, comments section, link to previous and next project) I will need a lot of help from technical support to achieve that look

    – animation can easily cancel the main menu, in which the logo menu shrinks and goes up to start down the site.

    – They used to hide modules without having to delete

    – and facilitate the addition and use of custom icons in modules such as modules blurbs (and to regulate their size).

    – more design options in the mega-menu, (number of columns, icons, etc ..)

  355. Thank you for asking for suggestions. Here are a few:

    * Since there is a place to enter custom CSS in the Divi options area, often the only reason to create a child theme is to set the credits. The ability to edit those in the theme options area would be nice.

    * There are some issues with BuddyPress and BBPress it would be good to address..

    * Ratings modules (back-end and front-end).

    * The ability to create a “template” or layout for the blog, categories, and archive pages. Or it we are talking about the customizer, showing / hiding featured image, various meta items, and placement and size of the thumb of the featured image.

    * My understanding is that the builder will support CPTs. It would be nice, if possible, to provide control of placement of CPT fields in the builder layout.

    I too am surprised that you are asking for ideas this close to launch (assuming a month or so from the post in late April). glhf

  356. On mobile have the slider photos and text appear by default.

    Have the social media icons open in a new browser instead of taking the person away from the website.

    Make it easier to update the theme. Allow uploading the updated theme’s zip file like it used to be.

    Have an option to resize slider and resize blog post photos.

  357. More options for subscribe now module.
    Color, size, fields, etc

    Divi is awesome.

  358. Each of these has been mentioned already, but here’s my wishlist:

    1) Enable/disable modules
    2) Copy, paste and archive modules
    3) Easier to change padding between sections (globally and per module)
    4) Mobile – More compact by default
    5) Built in child theme
    6) Contact Form module – More fields
    7) WooCommerce – Select specific categories
    8) Divi Builder available in posts

  359. Oh, I have two more suggestions:

    – Add Pinterest as a social icon

    – Add the ability to incorporate slide pictures in one of the navigational menus, like this (sorry for sharing a link to a non-Elegant Themes theme but this is the only theme that I know of that does this and I am currently using that theme for one of my sites specifically for that feature, even though I’d rather use one of your themes): http://pro.weavertheme.com/demo/sliders/

    Thank you.

  360. Lots of great suggestions! I have one simple one.

    – put the copyright code for the footer in the control panel!!

    so many time it is the ONLY reason we need a child theme.

  361. Here are my suggestions:

    – Add the ability to use graphics for bullet lists, such as a green check mark and a red minus sign

    – Add the ability to select where the sidebar goes (left or right) for the entire site, not just on a page-by-page basis

    – The ability to change the height of the navigational dropdown menus, and change the colors of the dropdown menus

    – The ability to change the look of navigational dropdown menus, instead of the default look

    – Someone said to add additional line breaks, and I second this, and would also like the addition of line break options between sidebar widgets

    – The ability to modify the “Read More” link on Home/Archive page excerpts, such as changing the wording

    – The ability to modify sidebar widget titles (font, size, alignment, etc.)

    – The ability to set the size of images used on the Home/Archive pages

    – The ability to change the footer links without having to use a child theme or modify code

    – The ability for sidebar navigation to have one category drop open when a link is clicked, sort of like how Amazon does

    Thank you for your consideration.

  362. Like many I have issues with mobile display, in my case the slider.

    Would it be possible by using a User-Agent test, have an entirely different home page displayed? So you would essentially incorporate a mini “mobile builder” into Divi Builder.

    I’d like to not have to do away with the slider entirely but instead point the mobile version at more appropriate dimensioned images.

    This would also allow for a straightforward (to the user, not you the developer ) way to incorporate the other suggestions regarding mobile logo and so on.

    On a completely different thought, would it be possible to leverage page templates into alternate themes, so for example, an Op could have all the goodness of Divi, but for his store page use ET Boutique by installing it into a “page templates directory.” I get that most of what is in the ET library can be rebuilt with Divi, but there are some rock solid beauties in there that it would be great to use out of the box for their dedicated purpose — and I’m not a coder or designer so I need all the help I can get!

  363. It would be amazing if you had a front end visual drag and drop section like Wix(I hate them, however they made a good enter face)
    Thanks for all yall are doing!

    • This is our plan for Divi 3.0. It’s a huge project, but definitely on the way!

  364. 1) Ability to add ANY social media/ custom social media slots.
    2) Ability to build custom forms. PLEASE!! Most free plugins out there are awful.
    That’s all I can think of right now! Divi is quickly becoming the only theme I use, but these certain limitations direct me to other themes on occasion.

  365. The ability to target links, pages, posts, widgets etc to open in a configurable popup.

    Option to show or hide each element at different screen sizes, e.g. don’t show a stack of “blurbs” on devices like phones / iPods but show a different element “such as a call to action”. If on a medium sized screen perhaps we would show only 2 blurbs and on a large screen we’ll display 4 etc. Also a different menu choice for small screens so we can provide more targeted links per device.

  366. Whoa, there must be a thousand suggestions here *not* related to the WordPress customizer…

    My suggestion would be some extra options for the menu –

    – Option to have 1 or 2 menus in the header. If 1 header then it operates as it already does but if 2 menus are selected then you would be given two choices: 1) if logo is centered then you can have menu left and menu right (effectively splitting the menu and having the logo between – lots of requests for this); 2) if logo is not centered then it would be useful to have the second menu just below the header which would act just how the secondary *top* menu acts now. This would be useful for sub categories or maybe even product categories for shops.

    – Option to add a call to action button in the menu: some sites now have a ‘buy now’ or a ‘get started’ button on the end of their menu. Would be nice to be able to add a custom button like this that is in line with the menu.

    – Different options for mobile menus – would love a switch that allows me to change the mobile menu to either drop down, slide out etc.

    – More default theme colours 😉

  367. Divi is the best theme I have ever used.

    I would looking for some more customization option for Header Main Menu items (specially in menu design). As per my view, current menu looks very simple. Need to give some more options for design & customizations, so we can select different kind of menu designs.

    Or, you can give different header section themes. So admin can choose different header. Header would have different logo options & menu design options.

    Eager for new version release….

  368. I’m so exciting for new update!

  369. Amazing what you do guys! Really amazing!!
    TAKE MY MONEY! 😉

  370. make it more obvious what dimensions ‘good size’ images should be!

    change to percentage based dimensions and fix mobile. your container width is hard coded to 280px on mobile which is ludicrously narrow.

    you need to do better with handling logos that aren’t the size and shape of your tiny divi logo.

  371. dump the e-panel, it’s awful, and put everything in the customizer.
    it’s really bad right now because it’s not obvious which options are in which.

  372. Divi is designed to have white background and is not tested on coloured backgrounds. At its present form Divi will not work when the background is set to anything but white. Almost everything is required to be adjusted by custom CSS. This should change.

    As an example: h1-h6 is hard coded to be gray. This is absurd when you allow the text colour to be changed on the customiser. Set the background to gray on the customiser and see if you can read the title of the single post? You will understand what I mean?

    • amen! divi is still primarily a white desktop theme. sections should be transparent by default. ET should at LEAST provide a white on black theme option which would FORCE them to find all the place they’ve hardcoded white :/

  373. I would like more videos on customization of DIVI. I don’t have coding experience but love to build my websites on my own. I did watch a YouTube video on how to create funnel page and learned something new.

    Based on what I have learned, DIVI is the theme for those that don’t code.

    Keep up the great work, but offer some video tips for us beginners that want to build our own sites.

    Thanks.

  374. Hi,
    some ideas …
    some of these ideas could replace third party plugins that I use regularly (SEO by Yoast, slider revolution, Contact Form 7, TinyMCE advanced, …)

    – divi builder available in posts
    – module to insert php and html code.
    – shortcode or module to insert
    – a real estate builder module (ElegantEstate ?)
    – and a “real” search module (with filters).
    – an availability calendar to show and manage availability
    – a Booking Calendar module, for events, availabilitys (concert, date/night reservations, BandB, vacation rental)
    – multiple marker types (color, shape), and get routing information from Google maps Module
    – a seo module integrated.(like yoast, but liter)
    – slider height customize : sliders options, like “revolution slider”
    – more fullwidth modules: text, gallery
    – more customizable form module (more fields like CF7)
    – PayPal integration
    – a flexible header / footer
    – possibility to have portfolio with the posts (not only with projects)
    – better integration (CSS) on mobile devices (exemple : 4 blurbs can be displayed on one line (instead of 4) on phones or tablets)
    – an integrated system backup and restore (with Dropbox, FTP, local directory)
    – … that’s all for the moment 😉

    Thanks

    • + 1 and could be cool if the advanced form module also supported conditional elements (for instance when you click on a certain checkbox other form fields appear of disappear.

    • Great suggestions..
      But i wouldn’t replace WordPress SEO plugin.
      SEO is not a fixed thing to build, needs a company by itself dedicated for that job/updates…

  375. I think responsive images throughout would be incredible so we serve small images to mobile users. Integration with picturefill!!

  376. The sky’s the limit? I think the gallery is the limit. When i asked about your gallery you told me to buy a 3rd party plug in which cost more than your theme? I bought a different theme.

  377. It just occurred to me that Nick might say ‘Yes’ to a lot of these and we won’t see the new Divi for 2.4 years. lol 😉

    • Hahaha – so true, we’re almost approaching the 1 year anniversary of the Extra theme announcement. To be fair, there has been some progress with into of Monarch, promise for a stand alone Divi Builder plugin, etc.

  378. If you read nothing else I share below, I would ask to have the kind of controls offered by http://www.csshero.org/ for CSS and dimensions.

    Things I often find myself wishing for are:

    1. Ability to control the menu positioning, font size and other specifics related to the presentation.

    2. The slideshows are fixed in so many ways and it would be great to have an option to customize more of that layout and appearance, including what is hidden in mobile vs desktop, etc.

    3. For those using the stock social media icons in the footer, would be great to have the ability to add more social networks (of course we can just use monarch, but not in the footer) also the option for those links to open in new window without hacking/creating child theme

    3. Contact form could be better if we had a way to name/label input fields and choose those which are included/used, as well as control the colors. Over different color backgrounds I have run into issues with CSS and it seems it could be easier built-in.

    4. Overall more CSS controls and drag/drop within the pages, being able to drag to set widths vs. fixed widths and portions.

    5. Control more of what is visible in mobile vs desktop (some important things get hidden)

    6. For SEO would be nice to have more control over which elements are H1,H2,H3, etc. and not have duplicate H tags for those which fewer are more important to SEO.

    • I wrote almost similar suggestions below, before i read this..
      those are vital points for producing different / unique looking websites, easily.

  379. Hi there – I love Divi and its brought me success with clientele and investors. So, I feel its time to add my 2cents to make it work more in my direction in my opinion, and I hope that these suggestions make it and helps others too. 🙂

    1 | Draggable elements for Pad based on the go layout designers.

    2 | Logo custom positioning

    3 | SVG integration and simplification (omg does one struggle with complex paths, if there was a evenODD or something like that plugin Id blow my nose)

    4 | Unity 3D integrations (as a game developer and Web4 imagineer I am at the forefront of clientele requests that are insane and ridiculous, if there was a way to easily allow Unity3D new canvas buildout method to be integrated into a section it would greatly reduce any sort of time wasted currently in implementation.

    5 | in page layout previewer ( for colaborators that dont want to test load, how about a modal preview of the layout when selected before its added to a page)

    6 | DiviDownloadManager

    7 | DiviEmailCampaignManager

    8 | Seperate CSS section in Divi options

    9 | Customizable contact form with mapbox integration

    10 | customizable person section with more options on positioning of elements and so forth

    11 | MORE DIVI !!!!!!!

    • btw you guys rock

  380. – Copy & paste module contents from one page to another.
    – Flexibilize columns so you can change layouts already filled with contents.
    – Advanced style options in every module. We’ve to deal with so many CSS customizations, and many modules has very few options.
    – Let the contents survive a theme change.

  381. I am excited to see the updates, and thank you !!! I am sorry if already mentioned. My recommendations are:

    1. More button options – shapes, sizes and colors.
    2. Call to action for headers – easily for non coders
    3. Easily change font size, bold and color within text boxes without code. (Not necessarily the whole text, but highlighted text segments.)
    4. More interesting text boxes – round, rounded corners, rectangles,
    5. Easily integrate icons for call to action/button with a menu, without code
    6. Drag and drop option for buttons and call to action boxes for correct placement in images and headers

    These would be amazing in a perfect world! Thanks for listening and asking! 🙂

  382. I would like to see Divi have more flexible options in the epanel, with all of the options accessible in the epanel, especially in the paid versions. The flexibility of the options in Avada’s theme options is fantastic. I prefer Divi to Avada, but the options in the epanel are not as good.

  383. Forgot, I have one more request for the backend (Page Builder mode).
    When you have many rows in as in a single page design, you cannot tell what row is what. I have to look at the preview and count how many rows down is the row I want to edit, than go back in the page edit mode and count down the same number rows to make sure I am editing the correct row.

    Request a way that each row has some kind of title, so you can quickly edit the correct row without going back out to see the preview.

  384. I don’t know if its been mentioned but I’d love to see a feature where you can decide which sections will appear the side navigation. You might not want every section as a stop point so the ability to choose would be awesome.

    Really can’t wait for the update!

  385. These are the things I customize the most:
    1. font size, mostly in header, but sometimes in body
    2. header and footer background images which then leads to
    3. header and footer text colors
    Not applicable to theme settings, but I’d really appreciate a blog post slider or carousel (with fullwidth capability) added to the Divi modules such that I could call the post content by category and it would display the last x number of posts.

  386. left/center/right justification options on the Image module

    open link in new window/tab option for Call to Action module

    True full screen/window options (height & width)

    Ability to easily adjust slider height and select FULL screen (height/width) option in full-width sections

    Expanded font options in Customizer (ability to assign different fonts & settings to each font selector, H1, H2, etc.)… I often add the Easy Google Fonts plugin and/or the Google Font Manager plugin

  387. Header Slider: currently Title and subtitle only offer dark or light font colors.
    Request ability to choice any color you want to standout from the background image. Currently, to change the color, I have to add a Custom CSS (time consuming).

  388. I forget to mention Google Font support

  389. I’m really hoping this version addresses some of the issues with the gallery and portfolio image sizing errors that have been discussed in the forums over and over… but I understand this thread is about the customizer. here are a few suggestions:

    – the ability to swap in specific alternate font sets from google, typography.com, typekit… I currently do it with css but it would be great to just have it pull them in natively. I have been using typography.com a lot lately.

    – More control over button style – again, I’ve gotten used to writing css for buttons, but if their style was controllable, it would be way nicer.

    – control over full width slider heights – having the sliders based on the description height only works well when all the descriptions have the same content. when the sliders are bumping the page up and down, it creates a serious usability issue for anyone trying to read below the slider. An option to allow sliders to be a minimum height, or to have all slides based on the tallest slide would be great.

    – options for number of columns in the footer – 4 is not really a perfect option in every case, and the 4 column footers don’t really translate well in the phone sized responsive versions. The ability to predetermine the number of columns would be great, from 1 – 6.

    – the ability to add additional items to the social icons areas. nearly all of the DIVI sites I have built have required adding something into the social icons in the footer. restaurants want yelp, some people want email, others want their phone number with an icon… being able to click a + and add more would be way better than editing the footer.php.

    – an option to NOT include the WP customization CSS in the head of the page – often times, the css that is generated by the customizer over rules css in a child theme, and this is a pain. It also uses !important in some places, and this is lame. Sometimes I just want to shut it off, or at leas let it load before my child theme css. my child theme should have the final say.

    • I also meant to mention… the fluid grid sounds great. HOWEVER, i am terrified that if I update my existing divi sites to divi 2.4, that the layouts will change or break. PLEASE include an option to switch to the old non-fluid layout when upgrading. Please please please. I don’t want to leave sites un-updated, but my clients will go bezerk if their site design changes unexpectedly.

  390. _ Social icon for musician, labels and band as soundcloud, bandcamp, beatport, itunes and all other related music social network. You’re really in late about this feature, keep in mind it can be a big market.

    _Video background that accept Youtube pleaaaaase and responsive.

    _Slider à la revolution slider customer really appreciate that.

  391. It would be really helpful to have a full width section with the same module selections available as a normal section. i.e. fullwidth image module, text module etc. I would also like to be able to copy and save as duplicate pages.
    Thanks,
    Mark

    • I would love to see the functionality to duplicate a page added also!

  392. – Full Screen complete display setting (100% width and height) for sliders and video background, that accept easily Youtube and Vimeo URLS with clean display ( no control buttons, bar, et.).

    _ Social icon for musician, labels and band as soundcloud, bandcamp, beatport, itunes and all other related music social network. You’re realy in late about this feature, keep in mind it can be a big market.

    _Video background that accept Youtube again and again

  393. Option for backup and restore all WordPress website like backup buddy.

  394. Apology if this has already suggested:

    In Page Builder, when the number of sections or rows in a page increases, it becomes cumbersome, when one wants to go back to them, to find which section or row is what. One has to go back and forth and open few sections or rows to find the one needed to edit. There should be a method to identify each section and row before being opened.

    • there is an ALT text input field in each section.. naming your sections / elements couldnt be easier in my opinion.. just click the options icon on each section , scroll down and find the default text of the type of element selected and change it to .. well anything.. I regularly keep my page layouts and elements organized with this method and export layouts across sites rapidly with no confusion simply by naming these section with the provided field. 🙂 hope that helps

  395. Please put the image dimensions in the info links.

  396. I’d like to see an option to easily open a new link in a new tab when the link is in the main menu header. Currently I have to do this by editing theme JavaScript files which can be quite cumbersome.

  397. I agree with all these suggestions. Especially, an included child theme for easy customization, the ability to easily add new fonts, the ability to save individual modules so they can be copied from page to page, footer info as an e-panel input (like copyright info and changing the Elegant Theme/WordPress text), more social media choices in the e-panel (instagram, pinterest, tumblr) – maybe even a way to add new social media icons and links directly into the e-panel, it would be great if Monarch and Bloom were part of Divi…maybe a way to use images in the navigation menu. I think I am up to about 10 Divi sites now and I love this theme, so knowing that you are making it even more powerful and adaptable is super exciting. I am sitting on the edge of my seat awaiting the arrival of 2.4.

  398. There should be an option where you could improve the look of the menus.
    An example would be this plugin: ubermenu, here the link: http://wpmegamenu.com/

  399. Thanks for the question Nick!

    1. A fast loading blog. I have yet to see any divi site load the blog quickly
    Google cares about speed and so do users.

    2. Only loading code that is actually used.

    3. The ability to add or construct nice looking opt-ins and place them anywhere on the site.

    4. The ability to design landing pages, home pages, post pages each in different ways – from one column, two columns to no columns.

    5. A release of 2.4 sooner than later.

    Thanks!
    Linda

    • I Completely agree! I love divi and use it for all my work as of recently because of its simplicity and documentation for the end user. But page speed is becoming more of an issue as of recently.

      Serving mobile cropped images instead of CSS sized ones would help. So would a minify option for all the code. I say option because I don’t want it to be minified in development. 🙂

      Thanks again for all the support and this great theme!

  400. I have some sugestions:

    1) I would like to control the HEIGHT for the SLIDERS and HEADER modules

    2) I would like to control the SIZE AND POSITION of the IMAGE in the background in a full width slider and normal slider.

    3) I would like to control the POSITION of the TEXT and IMAGE in the SLIDERS.

    4) I would like to control the SIZE, PROPORTION and GUTTER between thumbnails in the GALLERY MODULE.

    That for now.

    Thanks.

    • YES YES yES to controlling the height of the slider. Making that adjustment in CSS is a pain

  401. Ability to save all customizer settings

  402. Hi Guys!

    Wow, so many requests…

    Do you realize that if Nick & Team should add just half of what’s suggested you would have to be a very young person to live long enough to see the release of Divi 2.4.

    Cheers,

    Jan E.

  403. I would love to add a background image to the top of my page with the logo and then place my nav underneath.

  404. 1. Section to change header.php and footer.php code
    2. Actually pass the Accessiblity standard like the demo does or provide documentation on how to get it to pass. The demo passes but noone in the forum that I’m aware of has been able to get it to pass WCAG 2.0 AA requirements.
    3. Backwards compatible to not mess up current designs or a way to update the old code in a way that it doesn’t mess the design up. Either would work.

  405. – typekit integration would be awesome
    – vertical auto-hide menu (toggle open/close)
    – full-screen menu (click to open/close)
    – double header/menu stacked on each other
    – widgetable dashboard (see the Ken theme – it’s a really nice feature)
    – margin/thick border all around site (http://artbees.net/themes/ken-demo/freelancer/)

  406. Sorry didn’t read everyone’s comments above me, but since you requested ideas in relation to the customizer:

    – An expansive typography customization would be nice.
    – A way to customize the copyright footer line so that those of us that change it, don’t have to update it each time the theme is updated.

  407. Hi Nick and team,

    Great work already sofar i can see. Still very glad I made the choiche for ET when starting my business.

    A lot is mentioned already in the wish lists above.

    But I would really like:

    A better menu behavior when building a one page site.
    When you navigate via the navigation bar to a section the menuitems should highlight the chosen menu item. The actual version of Divi does not do that. It only highlights the home link. Thats confusing for users.

    Sliders on mobile should be able to show the slider image on mobile too. Not just the background image.

    Full frame video background

    Diagonal and rounded section borders

    pagination in blogs

    Flexible widget areas

    And if possible 100 % compatibility when updating a site build on the previous version of Divi based on a child theme.

    I am looking forward to Divi 2.4 and Extra

    Regards,
    Anton

  408. Footer customisation please.

  409. Nick,

    This is simple really. I don’t want to use an options panel at all, espcially that narrow one included with Divi. Move all theme settings to the customizer. I haven’t played too much w/ Divi since 2.1 I think, so I don’t know exactly what improvements have been made, but it’s time for me to jump back in. Can’t wait for the 2.4 release.

    Thanks for the al the hard work!

  410. I cannot wait and would like to see this lists implemented (some are duplicates of what I’ve seen in the current comments). But, before I do, I really can’t wait to be able to change the spacing between rows!!!

    1) I’d like to see at least a list of examples of where the colors in the customizer go. I have no idea what some of those descriptions mean (how they’re actually applied within the theme).

    2) The ability to create a Page with the WooCommerce categories (or SKUs or Tags or whatever) I select on that page via a module. I’d like to add text at the top of shop pages, but not being a coder/developer (just an artist trying to do it all!), I have no idea how to do that.

    3) The ability to add global and overriding tabs on Product Pages (yes, I’ve got the plugin, but maybe this can be done directly in Divi-VeryNearInTheFuture – yes?!).

    4) Have Simple Lightbox lay over the entire header area. I currently use Divi Booster to fix it, but it’s not fixing it (only the very top Menu greys out, but not the logo area or the Menu area below the logo area).

    5) Widgets anywhere! Yes!

    6) Support : a collection of CSS/PHP codes for changing things that can only be changed via these methods. This would reduce support for common needs and allow your customers to find what they need easier and faster. This would include a sorely needed listing on how to change the Footer!

    7) Ability to reproduce a module on another page.

    8) Ability to reproduce a page to another page.

    9) Ability to pick how I’d like customers to see how products are sorted. A checklist of selections would be great!

    10) More Menus – and allow them to placed (as widgets would be fine) in different areas of the site).

    11) More control of the Gallery (Portfolio). I’d like to showcase my custom work but need to add a lot of text with each picture – that needs to be styled and not just show as a huge paragraph.

    I’m sure I’ll think of more once I hit the “Submit Comment” button, but this is it for now! Thank you Divi Team!

  411. the most important thing I want to see is the text editing box in EVERY module act like it does in the WP editor — the editing bar stays put while the box itself moves — the parallaxing thing I guess. It gets really annoying when you have written a lot of text and you have to scroll back up to bold text or change it in any way.

  412. In a rush so maybe this has already been mentioned –
    ability to lock content in some way so that end users can’t accidentally delete blocks of content on their pages, also ability to have more control over margins, padding etc between modules.
    Keep up the great work! 😀

  413. I’d love to see the ability to copy and move all types of sections from one page to another.

    I’d also love more flexibility with what the portofolio module could be used for, ie not just project pages but posts and also woocommerce product categories

  414. The framework is missing a most basic choice — to have the primary navigation BELOW a header graphic. I use Divi Booster for this currently, but it glitches a bit.

  415. Retina ready is a must for portfolio sites of any kind. Have had to use another theme for this reason more than once!

    A redesign of the theme options panel would be another great improvement, but is not a deal-breaker if it doesn’t happen. But retina-ready is a must!

  416. being able to customize if post, search, page will have the sidebar and being able to create a custom post page model and a search page model with the builder.

  417. Hi,

    Thanks for the hard work and dedication! I think you make art!

    My suggestions:

    1- Some functionality for download files
    2- Design builder within post (Only available with page, not working with post)
    3- Ability to modify font color for fixed block (only available two option dark and light)

    Regards,

  418. Hi,

    Still working on first Divi site, please forgive if I mention things not appropriate for general settings due to my limited experience so far with Divi! 🙂

    My suggestions are:

    *Anything to help improve options for displaying or playing videos, namely videos hosted on Amazon S3, produced w/Camtasia 8.x/Fuse. Ability to have end of one video tease the next on the playlist (like on Youbube), ability to have a “Sign Up Now” or similar pop up at end of video.

    *Membership site integration, like with DAP.

    *Don’t know if and when it would be helpful in light of the 2.4 feature set, but anything to help develop the site in conjunction with Dreamweaver CC 2014.

    *Anything that my improve using Woo Commerce.

    *Possible improvements to save/auto-save options

    *Convert localhost sites to select web hosts (like LiquidWeb), if applicable

    *Site versioning: be able to revert/switch to different sites

    *Anything to help A/B split testing and track results (similar to LeadPages)

    *Anything to help with retargeting

    *Ability to copy CSS for use in matching an external help desk subdomain to the look of the main site

    Thank you!

    Steve

  419. Main menu look like buttons, not like text link. Will be great.

  420. Add or make more immediate, filter functions for research products (either T-shirts, plates, or real estate)
    Modules, or entire projects, adapted to different economic sectors; in my case, real estate. More or less, Divi, implemented with the features of Elegant Estate.

    [Use Divi, and then you can die]

  421. The Divi theme is awesome! This may have been mentioned earlier but it needs the ability to hide certain menu links on certain pages like Drupal 7 has built in. I was surprised that I couldn’t hide page menu links for the same page that you are already on.

  422. I just bought Divi to update my current website to a better theme, however I must say that I am a little disappointed and have the following suggestions to add to any update of this theme.

    1. I want control of the headers more. I want to be able to set text left, right, centre, or drag it to a position where it looks the best depending on background image. More dynamic headers with more functionality would be more appealing!!

    2. Background images need to be more constrained in height, I think they are too deep at present. If there was a control to determine the height that would be better!

    3. I want to be able to able to add social media icons into each post automatically. I don’t know if you can already do this, but I haven’t got into the theme that much yet!

    4. The ability to be able to use different sized typefaces and styles as well as a better leading system, so the spaces between lines isn’t so tight.

    5. In page image scaling would be good too with a drag and drop facility.

    6. Retina-ready image display.

    7. Search Bar in the top end plus other different options where you can include it.

    8. Footer menu – being able to put contact details in so where there needs to be a new line then this can be done. Also options for telephone, email, fax symbols etc that you can add to these.

    9. A bigger choice of more useful widgets

    10. Built in SEO similar to this would be great … http://codecanyon.net/item/premium-seo-pack-wordpress-plugin/6109437

    11. Organisation of the media library – a tool where you can put things more in order or in separate folders would be ideal.

    12. Something to create easy forms, ie quote form with radio buttons for different choices that a customer will want to make.

    There’s possibly more ideas that will come to mind as I run through the theme, but I think these few comments will do for now!! Please let us know when this new update is due out. Thanks.

  423. Wow, there is a lot of brain power here – am already a super satisfied customer, all these things are the cherry on top. Thanks Nick & Team!

  424. Thanks for giving us the chance for raising ideas to improve Divi..

    IMAGES are to big on blog pages.
    Its hould be the possibilitiy to set images sizes for post images in the ET-Settings. I ask for this, as there are many bloggers who still wants communicate with the text of an article. When watching a post with Divi, all you see is the post images. You can take Chameleon Theme as an example. Post previews and size of post images are quite well.

    CONTACT FORM
    Would be nice to add custom names to the fields.

    Thank you to the Team

  425. Very good suggestion for all,

    I would consider far the issue of h1, h2 when it gets a title in percentage form name among others, without realizing generate these labels, please take into account such details.

    regards

  426. Divi is awesome – This update looks really exciting! Can’t wait for the release.

    My wish list (sorry if these are duplicates of anyone’s):

    I would love to get away from 3rd party plugins which may or may not work with Divi and since I will not give up Divi – it can be stressful. . So some of these wishes are dealing with that issue.

    1. I would love to have the ability to add additional boxes in the visual area of a page/post like a color box: to be able to add solid or gradient backgrounds, shapes, etc. where I can put in text. (Like SWOT or Block diagrams)

    2. In conjunction: a content duplicator – if I use the boxes and text again in another post or page – just duplicate what I have already designed and paste it in the new post/page. Then adjust color/shape/text if needed.

    3. option for a dark theme without having to use a 3rd party child theme

    4. integrated child theme

    5. Control over logo placement and size in header (drag and drop it anywhere and scale it to whatever size you need) 🙂

    6. More social icon options

    7. the ability to create folders in the media library to sort uploaded media

    8. fully customizable video slider – with skin options, transition effects, text effect, lightbox options

    9. ability to set anything on a page/post to open in a lightbox

    If in the future you are looking for something “new” to create – I would like to request a forum plugin fully compatible with Divi and powerful to the max AND a directory plugin which allows me to create as many different directories as I want and put each directory on different page.

    • Integrated child theme would be nice!

  427. Great work already done. Thanks

    Please, see some suggestions :
    Make a audio player easy everywhere playing in everypage and small
    Please put WeChat and Sina Weibo logo as users sharring
    Please give us a Chinese theme translation

    All the best

    Claude

  428. Vertical Sections with row sub divisions would be great !

  429. I agree with everything that has been said. I work with a lot of authors and for those that I’ve used the Divi theme with, they love it because it’s easy for them to update.

    I agree with the social icons, especially pinterest, instagram, tsu, goodreads, linkedin, etc. I’m currently testing a child theme to use with Divi that does allow me to add some of social buttons mentioned. I’d also love an easier way to manipulate the header. Currently, I create a header and then use it in the logo spot with some extra css coding to help give the sites a different look.

    I’d love for the blog to work like all of the other pages when it’s being used as the posts page. I hope the new Divi 2.4 makes it easier to resize the sidebar and that it work across platforms.

    I also agree about the footer and everything else as stated earlier.

    Can’t wait for the next release.

    I love this theme and so do my clients.

  430. FYI – Has anyone else had an issue using plugin’s like “Revive Old Post?” The plugin keeps finding my tags and unplublished pages as if they were old posts.

    I put this hear because, maybe this is something with the way ET organizes our content (stated above). Thoughts?

  431. Very good suggestion for all,

    I would consider far the issue of h1, h2 when it gets a title in percentage form name among others, without realizing generate these labels, please take into account such details.

    regards

  432. Thank you Elegant Themes!

    I am finally returning to website design. Only created one DIVI site last year. More to come this year.

    My Wish List (from what I remember since I last used DIVI):

    01. Change space between modules
    02. Tutorial: CSS ID & CSS Class
    03. One-Click Child Theme Creator (I don’t really “get” child themes)
    04. Save/Copy/Past Modules
    05. Change Logo Size/Position
    06. See Previews/Updates in real-time.
    07. Global Edit feature for reused modules
    08. Image Database Management
    09. Tabs: Live View/Text View/HTML View/CSS View
    10. Breadcrumbs
    11. Bookmark Colors/Fonts
    12. Make Transparency Layer Over Images (to make Text readable)

  433. Would love to be able to add a few page links to the copyright bar (terms, privacy etc) directly from the customiser. & choose a hex code for the font colour and hover over colour without having to create / modify the footer.php file.

  434. The ability to set a timer on a layer or group to show up at a particular time.
    Or to build a section of items and hide them as group to be turned on at a later time.

  435. Hi! I would like to mix one page web with “normal” web. I mean, have links in the head page and use secondary pages as one web page.

    Another think: have text effects as Socialmood: http://socialmood.com/

    Thanks

  436. How about….

    The ability to assign different size and typeface families to headings, tags, elements, classes, etc…

    The ability to easy select any font from the master library of Google fonts.

    • YES pLEASE!

  437. Nick

    Super initiative to ask for our advices. We love your DIVI and wish for an even better one.

    My five cents :

    – Full-width image module, full width slider module
    ° don’t try to be too flexible. Just allow us to define our own size. I i want a full width slider with 1440 x 960, it should be possible.
    ° position the text and moving image at chosen coordinates within the background.

    – Editor
    ° having a bigger editor page for writing text

    – Post
    ° the post template should be editable just like a page (builder works also for post)
    ° each category of post could be identified for CSS differentiation. ET support proposed a mod, it should become standard for the full community:
    <div id="main-content" class="cat_name; ?>”> you will understand what I meant.

    – Easier CSS modification like porposed by CSSHero plugin. Suggestion, find an agreement with the folks at CSSHero, they are awesome about CSS tricks.

    – More options to tailor the menu bar (main, and second menu)

    – Blog / Post
    ° have the capability to display title before featured image (or not) without having to modify the php code (lost during upgrade)
    ° easy resizing of featured image

    – Image module
    ° new pictures placing options like a matrix (4 images in a row x 2 or 3 rows). In fact what could be done with portfolio but simpler. No need to create projects…. Jsut placing images where we want in the module.

    – Responsiveness
    ° more comment in the CSS to understand why ET developpers made special CSS definitions.

    – ePanel
    ° needs to be rewamped !
    ° some options are impossible to understand ! please be more explicit

    – Child Theme
    ° everybody will use a child theme. Propose a simple one as a chikd theme-template that will simplify the setup and prevent lots of questions to ET support !!
    ° identify, serialize “screenshot.png”, they are all the same and we don’t know who is who with several DIVI in the wp-content directory.

    – Splash screen (like the one on the right of this page) fully part of the DIVI. No plug-in.

    Waiting eagerly to 2.4.
    Regards

  438. Feature freeze this puppy and get er done. The fact that your asking makes me believe that you are no way close to release … let alone Extra.

    • “– Editor
      ° having a bigger editor page for writing text”

      Yes: Why not having an option to have a full screen editor on demand (a checkbox or a button) and a non scrolling menu

  439. HEADERS HEADERS HEADERS.
    Need the ability to have flexible headers.
    I would be a dream to have 4 sections in the headers like
    Logo | Menu | Social | Search
    or
    Phone Number | Menu | Search | Social
    any way we can mix it up.
    That would make my day and Divi would be the only theme I would use if
    I had this functionality – with everyone else input as above of course.

  440. Nick, I know zip about coding and all that stuff, which is why I love Divi. But there are a couple things I wish for:

    1. On the blog. I don’t want staggered grids and I don’t want enormous images. I want a simple thumbnail image on the left, then the first few lines of the article with a READ MORE button. I’ve tried the instructions and videos and I can’t get the thumbnails to work. I finally gave up and just adjust the size of images trying to create uniformity. Now I’m trying to figure out how to use the featured image and have the image appear on my post without seeing it twice. (I realize this is my ignorance and those informed could probably do this in a snap. But I can do many other things in Divi being ignorant. I’d love to be able to do this,too.

    2. On the images. I do book covers and 4 across is too big and the only way I’ve been able to work around it with my limited knowledge is to use a text box and put the images in it. Then I can link the images to their respective book pages. I really wish I could divide the 4 columns into 8 and make the images a link without having to do the text.

    3. In the Library, it’d be really helpful if I could attach a link to the image. Since I can’t–or don’t know of a way I can–I’m having to manually insert the image and create a link every single time I place the image.

    Being able to divide the Library, so to speak, into sections would be really helpful, too. (Again, if there’s a way, I don’t know it.) It’d save a whole lot of scrolling time finding images I’d used for articles, book covers, things I reuse all the time. It seems bogged down now and that would be an awesome perk.

    4. I don’t know if this is possible, available and I’ve missed the memo on how to do it, but it would be wonderful if when one creates a gallery, one could add a link to the individual images in the gallery. For example, I have a gallery of 8 or 10 photos. When viewing the gallery, click on the photo and it takes to the URL specified. That would be fantastic. (I tried the grid, I tried the carousel and neither worked. The gallery gets the images a good size, but I can’t insert links on the images.

    Please take all these suggestions with a grain of salt and full awareness I wouldn’t know a line of code if I got smacked with it. Still, with all my shortcomings in tow, I have been able to create a pretty neat site with Divi and for that I am really grateful. Perhaps all these things can be done. But if so, I haven’t been able to figure out how.

    Blessings,

    Vicki

  441. ePanel is not really efficient, I’m like Divi but Salient is also a good alternative (more powerful).
    I’ll see Divi 2.4 with a real integrated generator elements into posts and pages
    and also internationalization

  442. Accessibility built in (inc back end) 🙂

  443. The ability to ‘park’ modules on a page without having to remove them if a section is not relevant right now but will have to be rebuilt later.

    Also the option to move or copy sections / modules to another page.

    • +1

  444. Hi guys. You are making a really good job!
    Everything is great, nice and extremely functional.
    But have a little thing that I’d like to see on this theme. A way to add Ad Banners. This is very important for us who need to put some kind of Advertising on the site of our clients. Think about it.
    Thanx,
    Helio

  445. While in the customizer, Choose view > Desktop, Tablet, Phone

  446. We’d love to see the following:
    – ability to make phone number in header clickable in mobile
    – ability to determine which column shows up first under mobile browsers: currently by default this is the left column, but it would be lovely to be able to select this manually
    – option to place logo in the center of the top navigation menu, rather than having to do this with custom CSS
    – better slider options which don’t require shrinking/stretching an image: current solution is Meta Slider, but this could be built into Divi
    – more customization options for contact forms: current solution is Contact Form 7, which offers much more flexibility than straight Divi

    Thanks so much, and looking forward to the new release!

  447. Better SEO!

  448. Oh and ability to use third party fonts and icon fonts. I have purchased several hundred dollars worth of font and icons, and can’t add the font files without issues.

  449. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    No suggestions please….I need this now, I don’t want to wait for all these suggestions to be implemented.

    :sadface:

    😉

  450. Would be really great to have any option to change layout of an article and cathegoris that display posts.

  451. Option (toggle switch) to make Mobile version of site look the same as Desktop version.

    I personally think the layout of the content on the mobile version always looks terrible. Especially hate the mobile menu that hides the menu items til you click on it.

    Phones and tablets are huge these days. Would rather just display the real site layout.

  452. a way to easily move the secondary header below the main navigation would be awesome.

    Transparent Header would be great for fullwidth background patterns/images/slider

    not only columns in footer, but column width – instead of of just three 1/3 columns, have the option for 25%/50%/25% or 50%-25%-25% and so on.

    Lastly, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE work with the text editor module to reduce interference with third party plugins. That is one of the biggest issues i run into with Divi. As soon as I find a plug the works perfectly with my idea, I install only to find Divi is incompatible.

    That’s just my 2 cents. Other than that love it, and can’t wait for the release.

  453. Maybe not what you’re looking for, but the ability to have ads, especially in the header. Additionally more layout options and more granular selections for the layout of blog posts would be great.

  454. I would love to see DIVI have the features of customizing everything without having to do coding! I really would love it to be Adobe Muse like so it can be customizable for designers, not just coders.

    • That would be a Dream come True 🙂

  455. have video background just cycle once option
    have divi be able to replicate all your other themes!
    control over video speed – speed up, slow down
    Layers that sit on top of a slider where you can position anything you want!
    Type layers over a slider, and place anywhere on slider
    menus that can change depending on what part of the site you are on
    Audio player that plays from page to page with no stopping of music
    How can I create a page with out header on a particular page? Can I have a blank page?
    Form builder that is responsive, and lets you add additional fields
    how to reduce height of slider when there is a lot of slider text
    use PNG TEXT for dynamic text on left side

    Ability to work with BIG TYPE

    if you make edits on a page, and you did not update, add UPDATE to this warning popup
    when staging websites, you put in staging URL’s – would be nice to have an easy update URL function

  456. Hello, I am dependent on the DIVI user in wordpress, my knowledge is not that big, I’m still learning, but I think the theme could have a size of manual adjustment to the sidebar on page okay because we can use the creator pages, but in posts can not easily adjust the size that is always the same.

  457. Sorry if it’s been suggested already, but I would really like to see the Divi Theme Options ePanel done away with and integrated into the customizer, it is really confusing to have multiple places to configure the design, it should all be integrated into one customizer.

    • It would be nice to have settings options for Rows, not just Sections and Columns.

      I second the padding control. It’s the first adjustment I need to make, especially if I’m not designing the layout.

      I also like the idea of one place to make all customizations. Lose the epanel, and I’ll be smiling.

      And, while there are plenty of plugins for forms, it would be nice to have the ability to edit the forms, similar to what Grunion forms used to do.

  458. The ability to resize how the site displays the logo.

  459. The ability to resize how the site displays the logo.

  460. Need to be able to create flames that grow and glow brightly when a user hovers over a text module or item in navigation menu. Also, add Comic Sans and Papyrus to available font options.

    Only kidding, of course. Excited for the release.

  461. Improve Search Functionality

    Divi’s current search functionality is not acceptable for a premium theme.

    Furthermore it is incompatible with search plugins, like Search Everything.

    Please, please, please remedy this issue with next update and include the ability to search all content within our Divi themed websites.

  462. Really great ideas coming forward and congratulations on the changes in 2.4.

    However, but an early release is the MOST important thing for me as some of the suggestions now coming forward may take more time to implement and presumably can come in the next update.

    My wish list is:
    – retina ready with easy to use options for size etc.
    – ability to readily replace logo with image or slider (needed right now)
    – easy uploading of custom fonts (needed right now)
    – PayPal integration (needed right now)
    – easy customization of credits part of footer
    – integrated child theme
    – doing whatever to result in faster loading times

    Please can we have an early release. I have two builds starting and could use the features we have seen already.

  463. 1. One of my main headaches is when images on mobile disappears and I have to go into the code to have them show up. It be nice if there was an option to hide images on mobile.

    2. Also adding additional form inputs. And the option to make form templates. There just isn’t a great plugin out there that is compatible with Divi. I always use Contact Form 7 and there is just so much code customizing to make it look seamless with the theme and it’s painful.

    3. I also would love the option to make links open in a new tab!

    Keep up the good work!

  464. 1. Mega Menu with the ability to add pictures and icons on it (should be great if this option is also added on Extra as it’s more needed for Publications and Magazines, or e-commerce sites)
    2. More icons style (Icons are great but limited)
    3. Additional Social Media Icons without the need to edit the template (Google+, Facebook and Twitter is a bit limited)
    4. More Divider Styles
    5. Additional modules to boost our creativity!

    And make it SEO friendly……
    Can’t wait to see the release of Extra! Hopefully in 2015:).

    • ……………….and the ability to define a custom color scheme without having to change all the existing css code!
      Would be great to have also more options to customize button colors etc.

  465. Your Divi theme is awesome and I’d like to see the same functionality spread out across your other themes. Call it the Divi Framework or something more imaginative.

  466. One big request: The ability to give visitors a logged in/membership experience. I only want to show certain pieces of artwork for download to visitors who have subscribed and created a brief online membership profile (name, email and password to start).

  467. Full screen background video and images would be nice – the plugins I have used are all pretty flakey

  468. 1. More control over how large the logo can display without custom css.

    2. More control over sliders including automatic replay if desired.

    3. A separate Home Page slider with separate customization tools

    4. The ability to define a custom color scheme without having to use custom css code.

    5. More control over display of secondary menu/upper bar including font size/color control

    6. This wouldn’t necessarily be part of the customizer but more control over the contact form would be nice, including custom fields, required fields,etc.

    Thanks for the great ongoing work!

  469. Hello Nick,

    I am looking forward to the new Divi. For me there are a few things that could be improved:
    1) There should be a choice for each module for the headline hierarchy
    e.G.: the contact module has a h1-headline per default. Thus, integrating the contact form additionally to whatever site creates two h1-headlines on one page. This, according to the SEO-rules, shouldn´t be.
    2) There could be more options for the contact form. Now, in order to avoid the h1-headline mess, I have to integrate contact form 7 as a plugin, which is nice but Divi´s contact form design has more sex appeal.
    3) Again the headline hierarchy thing: Blurbs and every footer headline has h4 per default. This can be managed by putting a text module with h3 before footer-section and blurb section. But it would be helpful to have a choice for the headline type.

    I am really looking forward to the new version and I hope my suggestions are helpful.

    Yours

    Andy

  470. I like to design my posts like my pages with the Divi page builder.
    It is so sad that I have to give up the beautiful page builder function in my blog.

  471. Let us control what HTML heading (H1, H2, H3 …) each headline should use. Right now I have to overwrite each predefined heading using jquery which isn’t ideal.

    We need control of the HTML headings, also for better structure.

  472. Option to switch on a second button (in slider for example) with interface controlling button style (button one should be able to be a different appearance to button two), button(s) placement (locations and whether side by side or above and below etc).
    Thanks 🙂

  473. Not sure if these have been mentioned or addressed in your updates:

    The ability to change fonts within the module. I sometimes like to use 3-4 fonts in my design and just learning CsS makes this difficult for me.

    More options in the full length rows section with an HTML element.

    The ability to “time” animations in images, blurbs and counter modules.

    Choice between blurb, testimonial, on top of sliders instead of just text.

    Custom sizing for galleries so pictures don’t pop up larger than each other.

    All these things may already be easy to do. I’m just learning this.

    Timed pop ups with custom text.

  474. Hi!

    Great job!

    I would love to see an option to add custom thumbnail dimension to an image.
    To collaborate. If I have image size 1024x768px and 768x1024px would be great if I could determine the size of thumbnails…

    Thanks!

  475. The ability to don’t need a child theme, I mean to have it somehow automated in the theme.

    So every time that there is a new update, all the changes that I did will remain, without the need to make a child theme or just redo the changes.

  476. I’m excited to play with the new builder! One thing I’d like to see is an easier way to change the default area that typically says: Design by Elegant Themes powered by WordPress. I’d love it if I could put copyright info there without having to go into the Editor.

  477. – More Menu placement options
    Be able to move the Menu to the Footer.

    -More Form Options
    Form Builder

    -More Colour Options

    -Include Standard Child Theme

    -Horizontal Sliding Page
    Thus be able to have the Menu on Left or Right

    -Customization of Upper Menu with Social Media Icons

    -More Social Media Icons
    Custom Icons

    -Fix Map when scrolling over it. So it does not zoom

    -More Add options built in
    Custom Adds

    This theme is great guys! Well done so far.

  478. – Call to Action buttons in NAV BAR or on TOP (HELLO BAR anyone)

    – Ability to edit the location of social icons above NAV and or phone number

    – Better spacing between modules, the space between modules by default is huge…please allow us to reduce this easily

  479. The update looks very good ! We are rebuilding our company sites with Divi and can’t wait to get my hands on the new version. What I would like to see improved:
    – more flexibility for the menu (placement, hover over)
    – better slider options, a bit too weak compared to some alternatives
    – Divi support for blog posts
    – I would like to have more control on how images scale themselves compared to other images in the same section without actually caring about the picture dimensions too much
    – being able to copy modules between pages
    – more modules related to events, a calendar would be one of them but I’m also thinking about a registration form module

    Looking forward to use the new release !
