To alleviate this widespread critique, Elegant Themes (makers of Divi) announced a Divi Builder Plugin, that can be used with any Word Press theme. The new Divi Role Editor features were just what I needed, to simplify the interface for my non-tech-savvy clients. According to Elegant Themes’ sales page, Divi is “100% Translated into 32 Languages“. A support ticket later confirmed that there’s no way to get rid of the translation!I’d be stuck with a theme UI in what can best be described as hopelessly bad Danish. I looked heavily into Thrive Architect from Thrive Themes.
It’s the only theme that lets you design your dream website, zero coding skills required! As long as Divi is your active theme, these shortcodes will be replaced with your intended layout. It’s a reflection of you (or your company) – and as such, it shouldn’t change much, fundamentally. Your outfit may change, yet you’re still the same you, broadly speaking. However, the Danish Divi translation is so frickin’ bad, it’s useless. I could of course just delete the Danish localization files from Divi’s /lang/ folder, but I wanted an update-proof way, so I never had to deal with it again.
Yes, your website design should be updated every now and then, but in more of an a choice you should be very conscious about! What if you’d like to stop using keen on using Divi for the Tai Chi site I was about to get working on. No matter what I tried, the uselessly lame translation stayed in place.
Most beginners are not familiar with template hierarchy in Word Press.
This makes it harder for them to figure out which files to edit when they want to customize their themes.
The other website was built in Thesis 1.8.5 – also known as Thesis theme? Yes, you can save these layouts to Divi’s library, and reuse/apply them to other pages and posts.
Let’s look at the requirements of my client – the one with the Thesis 1.8.6 website. I looked around for alternatives, and Elegant Themes’ popular Divi theme is one I’ve wanted to make a real, alive’n’kicking website with, for a long time. Despite Divi’s relatively young age (released in late 2013, now already at version 2.5.3) it’s a theme with a history – and it’s one of controversy. But you can’t just assign a “Blog” template to your blog posts, and have all blog posts use it. In this sense, Divi is a much more manual affair, best suited for relatively small websites.
So I wanted a Word Press theme with a client-friendly page builder, it had to be one in which I could assign each club specific permissions to only edit the layout of their own individual page. What’s been so controversial, is the way the dear Divi theme creates its impressive page layouts.
Headway is unique in the Word Press page builder space. Technically, under-the-hood, Divi does its job; using shortcodes. Well, too many Word Press users switch themes as often as they buy new outfits. It’s the vehicle that lets you deliver what you are offering to the world. I tried lots of stuff to permanently get rid of this horrible translation of Divi.
