DIVI THEME (Divi vs Blocksy)

Divi is the best-selling Wordpress theme ever...

Divi Theme review


This Divi-Theme review for [2022] shows you the latest improvements and the eye-catching features of Divi. We're not going to give boring bullet points and lists of options that can be found on the Elegant Themes website although I noticed that they also try to keep their site as exciting as possible, and of course that the Divi website is a true work of art...

DIVI ADVANCED GRADIENTS

Let's start with the 2 newest features that show Divi has the best stuff by far. Anyone who has worked with Photoshop, Corel or similar photo editing programs will know how to build gradients in all the colors of the rainbow. The same is now in Divi called Advanced Gradient Builder, the feature offers unlimited possibilities in terms of gradients. There is of course no theme that has this at the moment, although they will certainly copy it. They do that with everything Divi invents.

DIVI LAYOUT CLOUD

And we will immediately continue with the next feature that has no other theme. The feature is called Divi Layout Cloud. It allows you to instantly use sections, columns, complete pages, images, videos, audios, and anything else you put in the Cloud while you work on any websites you have. The time savings that this feature brings is unprecedented. An absolute must for every professional web designer and certainly design agencies.

Divi Theme Review Online Stores


Watch a video right here on how Divi's Woocommerce-Builder proceeds. A decent theme has fantastic options to create a webshop with it and that is more than the case with Divi. The theme gives an incredible amount of options to customize product and category pages by means of the WooBuilder and the WooModules. View here all 229 different Divi-demos (1685 templates). Insane numbers!

The Divi demo library contains many beautiful shop layouts that you can install in your project with 1 click. Complete styling of your shop is really a piece of cake with the WooBuilder. Everything can be adjusted very quickly at the front-end. All available demos were of course made with the Divibuilder discussed below, along with Elementor Pro considered to be the best page builders out there.


DIVIBUILDER (Pagebuilder)

DiviBuilder


The DiviBuilder is the perfect page builder for Wordpress and an absolute pleasure to work with. The page builder works very precisely, which means on the website itself it looks just like where you are working. Everything you want to use such as elements and effects are easy to find and you can build pages very quickly with it.

If you purchase Divi, the DiviBuilder is also included as a separate plug-in in your package and can be used in other themes. Test the DiviBuilder right now on the Divi website click the purple "Try it for free" button at the top.


DIVI THEME SPEED

Divi Theme Speed


In the meantime, no theme wants to lag behind in terms of loading times or speed, as Google attaches more and more value to it. Divi recently received a speed upgrade and has become one of the fastest loading themes available for Wordpress. Unbelievable that 1 theme can beat all other themes on all fronts... Watch here a video and more information about Divi's Speed Upgrade.


DIVI EFFECTS

Divi Theme Review Effects


With Divi Effect, images can be tuned at lightning speed. Change the exposure, colors, invert the image, apply sepia colors or make the image transparent (percents can be set). Changing images in Divi and not in a PC program ensures that your image remains undamaged and can be further modified quickly at any time. We give 10 points for this tool in this Divi Theme review.


DIVI TRANSFORMS

Divi Theme Review Transforms


Watch here a video and more information about Divi's Transforms here. With Divi Transforms practically everything is possible on texts and images, rotate, mirror, skew object just like in Photoshop's "CTRL+T". A fantastic tool that has no other theme as far as I know.


DIVI SHAPE DIVIDERS

Divi Theme Review Shape Dividers


This feature really makes your website shine, the competition will be jealous of your site. It used to be quite a challenge even for professional web designers to get such shapes into blocks. This is no longer the case with the DiviBuilder, because anyone without technical knowledge can now do this with the greatest of ease, including you! Watch here a video and more information about Divi's Shape Dividers.


DIVI BULK EDIT

Divi Theme Review Bulk Edit


Colleagues who have been building websites for years also remember how we used to repeat actions endlessly. If you had 6 blocks that you wanted to change the style of, you had to work 6 times. That is no longer necessary with Divi's Bulk Edit, you can make the adjustments for all 6 blocks at the same time. This feature saves you an incredible amount of time. Watch here a video and more information about Divi's Bulk Editing.


DIVI DROP SHADOWS

Divi Theme Review Drop Shadows


You no longer need Photoshop to create shadows for images. Photoshop is not only a very expensive program but also takes much longer than Divi's Drop Shadows. Another advantage is that the original image remains intact and additional styles can be added later or the shadow can be adjusted if necessary. Watch herea video and more information about Divi's Drop Shadows.


DIVI SPLIT TESTING

Divi Theme review split testing


Every business wants as many leads and conversions as possible, so they regularly try to improve pages to get more out of them. However, Divi Leads makes it a lot easier for you. You can create as many different versions of a layout or text as you want. These are then presented alternately to your visitors. Divi keeps track of the statistics for you which versions score better. Watch here a video and more information about Divi's Split Testing.


Divi and the Divibuilder have so many gadgets and options that I could make the page of this Divi Theme Review 3x as long, but the best is to have a look here at the Divi Website and see the rest there.

DIVI THEME REVIEW: PRICING

At Divi you do not buy a theme, but a membership. This membership gives you access to 86 premium themes including Divi and a number of top plugins and a library of images. In terms of price, this certainly makes Divi more interesting than other themes, since it is only slightly more expensive per year than an average other theme. These "other themes" usually only provide support for half a year, which in my opinion is very little. After that, you usually pay a lot to get extra support.

If you can spend $249 one-time, you have the complete package for life with lifetime support. Especially for companies with a few websites, this is by far the most interesting solution as you will never need anything else to build perfect websites. Using this link you'll get at least 10% discount.


DIVI THEME REVIEW: SUMMARY

I'm going to keep it short and sweet here in the conclusion of this Divi theme review for [2022]. With Divi you get value for money, it is a well-oiled machine for building websites from the ground. Divi has no weaknesses or shortcomings. Regardless of whether you are creating a webshop, a corporate website or a private site, you will always be delighted that you have purchased Divi. Join the 806,875+ members they already have, you won't regret it.


Divi offers a one-month money-back guarantee, so if you don't like it, you can always ask for your money back. Other themes do not give you this, but Divi knows that you will be satisfied.

BLOCKSY THEME (Divi vs Blocksy)

Blocksy Theme review


Blocksy is een razendsnel ladend minimalistisch Wordpress theme...

In this Blocksy Theme review I quickly show you why this is such a fantastic theme. The theme is suitable for any kind of website, including building blogs and shops. It was created with Gutenberg in mind and works perfectly with it. The same goes for all elite pagebuilders for Wordpress.

BLOCKSY RATING

Blocksy theme review rating


If we check on Wordpress.org Blocksy's rating, we see that all raters gave 5 stars out of 1 rater after who gave 4 stars. A better average rating than what the Blocksy Theme shows here is therefore hardly possible.


BLOCKSY THEME REVIEW: SPEED

Blocksy Theme review laadtijden


The Blocksy theme is a fast loading theme although it is not in my list for fastest WP-themes. The theme itself without additional plugins with just a well configured cache plugin produced the result presented above. In short, the theme is astonishingly fast. Of course you can further optimize your website on loading time. Follow this tutorial here.

BLOCKSY DEMO LAY-OUTS

She calls the Blocksy theme Starter Sites herself. That is also the term used by Astra, a theme that is even better known than Blocksy and very much like it. Blocksy offers a great collection of these Starter Sites which is totally awesome.


Blocksy Theme review Demo Lay-Outs


BLOCKSY DEMOS FOR PAGEBUILDERS

The above demo layouts were created with the following page builders: Gutenberg, Elementor, Brizy and Beaverbuilder. Under each individual demo it is indicated for which page builders it is available. Again, Blocksy is similar to Astra which also offers this service on their Starter Sites.


Blocksy Theme review Demos for pagebuilders


BLOCKSY'S EDITOR

The Blocksy theme uses the Gutenberg Editor by default, which is definitely not my favorite editor. But as you have read above, the theme is just as suitable for working with elite page builders as you would like, which is certainly a good idea.

BLOCKSY BASIC FUNCTIONS

Blocksy Theme review basic functions


BLOCKSY: HEADER BUILDER

Blocksy Theme review Header Builder


Even the free version comes with a real header builder (picture above). Choose one of the ready-made headers or adapt it to your wishes. Blocksy makes it very easy to quickly create the header you had in mind. The pro version offers a much better header builder and there each of your pages can have a different header.


BLOCKSY THEME REVIEW: MEGA MENU

Blocksy Theme review Mega Menu


The mega menu only comes with the pro version and offers nice options like using icons, or complete content blocks (using Hooks). This basically allows you to use any kind of content in your menu. The mega menu also offers special design styles for the menu items.

BLOCKSY: WOOCOMMERCE SHOP

Blocksy Theme review Woocommerce Shop


Blocksy is also very suitable for building webshops with it, even the free version. The theme works perfectly with the popular Woocommerce plugin. Wonderful options such as Quick View, Ajax Cart and Gallery Styles are already included in the free version. The Pro version takes it up a notch with Wishlist, Off-Canvas filters, Floating Cart, Off-Canvas cart, Search by SKU and more. Building a pre-fashionable-looking shop thus becomes a piece of cake.

BLOCKSY: CUSTOM SIDEBARS

Blocksy Theme review Custom Sidebars


The same thing I just said about the headers also applies to the sidebars. In principle it is possible to present a different sidebar to your audience on every page. Important, because as can be seen in the example above, a shop page obviously needs a different sidebar than blog pages.

BLOCKSY THEME REVIEW: CONCLUSION

Blocksy is a new fresh theme, very suitable to quickly create a good shop, blog or corporate site. Strong points of Blocksy are the Starter Sites, the Header & Footer Builders and Webshop options. If you still have doubts, check WP-Astra. It is very similar to Blocksy but is a lot more advanced and offers even more options.

DIVI VS BLOCKSY COMPARISON CONCLUSION

You have come to the end of my Divi vs Blocksy comparison. I have to admit that Blocksy is a great theme. It can do everything, has beautiful demos and loads very quickly. You can create any kind of website with it and it is also completely free. Since Divi does not have a free version, I would definitely use Blocksy if you are looking for a very good theme and do not want to spend it. As soon as we start spending money, Divi is of course much more attractive and the more mature theme with many more possibilities and the best page builder out there already, the Divi Builder.
