I don't use Divi, I use Thrive Themes

What are those like, I briefly looked at the site.

Twenty bucks a month, must be worth its weight.

Are you getting the results you'd hoped for. Would be nice to hear your brief review. Do you recommend to perhaps go ahead and purchase a plan?

I don't use this theme.

Accordingly elegant them is worth the money. Divi theme I think you need to pay yearly membership or one-time membership. As a member, you get unlimited access to all Elegant Themes products — plugins and themes. I have no idea. about the products.

Hi, David yes I'm using it.
I think the only minus I have found is that it is slower to load than Generate press, but this is a minor issue when all factors considered. It loads ok! It can also take a little while to learn how to adjust things. That is why I'm using it actually... because I had committed some time to learning how to use it over the past couple of years, and I can definitely say it has improved over that time.

Certainly I believe that free Generate press doesn't quite give me enough design options... so Divi is my next choice (and have now spent over a year using it on and off for various sites I've done for others as well)

The great advantage of having the ability to design things the way you want is a feature with 2 inherent down sides....
1. It can be a little tricky to get the hang of... and I have seen people put in unnecessary CSS with important! overrides, because they didn't want to/couldn't figure it out using the frontend design features. (seriously... to learn to use Divi fully and properly can almost be harder than learning/looking up the CSS to make the same adjustments!)... I believe doing things this way will make things slower..

..and

2. I have now seen a couple of people going overboard with the animations and other design options... kinda making the look and feel of their website overwhelming, crowded and a bit crazy if you ask me!

I think the key factor to keep in mind is ... just because it can be done, it doesn't mean you should do it. I may have bought a car that can go 300km/hour, but that doesn't mean I should drive that fast!

The last factor... the pricing for the lifetime membership is fantastic... as many sites as you want ongoing.

Also, I aways create a child theme to begin with, and do the design factors/customisations, and that way updates won't affect it.

Best wishes,
Jacquie

Yes, me.

So far good, I am still tweaking my Extra. I got charged 206 bucks lifetime access unlimited websites. I'd use the 10 percent discount link.

The templates are great savers. But generally, I am happy with it.

They look professional, SEO friendly.

Bloom and Monarch included, so are all future updates.

Support may take some time to answer your enquiries, however, all correspondence is packed into your email inbox so you can review them at a later time. You also can give support admin access within so they can help you tweak things.

There's a learning curve setting up a global post, page or template, however it is steeper than if you're learning how to use Elementor.

They do have 3rd party extra apps that you can purchase for ultimate look and feel UX.

Do let me know if you need anything else. Have a nice day.
