DIVI THEME (Divi vs Storefront)
Divi is the best-selling Wordpress theme ever...
This Divi-Theme review for  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 1-click demo lay-outs
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.
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
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.
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.
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
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
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
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
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 . 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.
STOREFRONT THEME (Divi vs Storefront)
Storefront is the default theme of Woocommerce...
In this Storefront Theme review we take a look at whether the theme that Woocommerce itself released to work with their E-commerce plug-in is actually a good product. One of the things that immediately struck me is that extensions have to be purchased for a number of functions of Woocommerce. This does not necessarily have to be a problem, because there are many themes with a free version that are very good but do not offer 100% functionality.
If we check on Wordpress.org Storefront's rating, we see that practically all raters 5 stars gave up except for a few haters. The average score is 4.4 which is a good score, but there are themes with almost 5/5 so it is not really impressive. The theme is currently installed on 200,000+ websites (active installs), which is a pretty high number for a minimalist theme.
As a free theme, the Storefront theme does not offer demos, which are also not really necessary. But if you want a different design, the Storefront Child Themes that Woocommerce offers might be a good alternative. I'll say right away that these cost about $40 each and basically you can get a good Woocommerce theme like WP-Astra. There are 2 free Child Themes, called Deli and Boutique.
STOREFRONT THEME REVIEW: WEBSHOPS
Logically, the theme is 100% compatible with Woocommerce, and is only suitable for building webshops. It is theoretically possible to create a blog or corporate site with it, but the theme is not intended for that. I recommend getting one of the top Woo-themes for that.
The Storefront theme is one of the fastest themes out there for Wordpress and should actually be in my list for fastest Woocommerce themes, but then again, the theme should also be a star which is not the case. The bare theme with no extra plugins with just an optimized cache plugin produced the result presented above. Of course you can optimize your website yourself for loading time. Follow this advice here.
STOREFRONT: PAGE BUILDERS
The Storefront theme uses the Gutenberg page builder by default, but is compatible with Elementor Pro, and all the other elite page builders out there for Wordpress.
STOREFRONT: SHOP PAGES EXAMPLES
A Website built with Storefront is 100% responsive on all devices, fully compatible with Woocommerce and all its extensions. Below are some layouts from the demo shop for Storefront. Everything looks good, but as said before, there are themes that are much, much better to build a shop with such as Divi or Astra.
STOREFRONT: PAID AND FREE EXTENSIONS
There are a total of 11 special plug-in extensions that have been developed especially for Storefront. Of these extensions, 4 are free, the rest can be purchased (something I wouldn't do). The 4 free plug-ins are: Product sharing buttons, Contact Section on the Homepage, Hamburger Menu and an extra Footerbar.
STOREFRONT THEME REVIEW: CONCLUSION
The Storefront theme certainly does its job well as free theme and is very suitable for building shops with Woocommerce. It was made for that, so it's not surprising that it works well. However, there are much better themes that also work perfectly with Woocommerce, the free versions of which are also better than Storefront.
STOREFRONT VS DIVI CLOSING COMMENT
You have come to the end of my Divi vs Storefront comparison. It has become clear that the Storefront theme cannot be used for all types of websites, but is mainly suitable for the construction of webshops. The theme looks very good on all possible devices and working with the theme is pleasant and easy, especially with Elementor added as a page builder. However, Divi and Storefront cannot be compared in terms of quality. Divi is much better at building webshops, and Storefront doesn't even participate in other areas. As I mentioned above, there are better alternatives to Storefront, even without spending money.
