I recently blogged on why I don’t use DIVI and I hate to keep picking on it, BUT… I’m currently converting a DIVI site to a new theme and wanted to show you all what happened when I applied a new theme to a DIVI site. Shortcode EVERYWHERE. This is a page after deactivating DIVI and activating Beaver Builder theme.
This is enough for me to never use DIVI again for any client. I will be cutting and pasting their content back into the Beaver Builder theme. What are other reasons to skip DIVI?
- It is over 26MB in code base.
- There are tons of features you will never use
- SHORTCODE, SHORTCODE, EVERYWHERE
You want to design websites with redesigns in mind. A large portion of my business comes from redesigns. I keep my client for years and no one should be in the same website for more than 2-5 years. Design trends change. Technology changes.
DIVI is a forever theme and a theme I plan to avoid from here on out!
