Is Using ElegantThemes Divi a Lifetime Commitment? The Short Answer Is,… Think Some More About the Question.

Babs Hobs writing about ElegantThemes Divi in the ElegantMarketplace.com Blog clears up an issue some people may express with using Divi.

I’m a ElegantThemes Divi user. The theme used here is Divi and I’m also using Divi on my TheSmallBusinessSystems.co website and I plan to deploy it on two other websites of mine and for a couple of clients too precisely because of it’s intrinsic responsiveness, it’s incredible rich power features and flexibility I then have as a designer. I read Chris Lima’s article “If you use the Divi theme with WordPress, it better be forever” and while I recognized his issues with the theme I found myself disagreeing with the larger point he was making at the time. I’m with Babs Hobbs (of BabsHobbs.com) who says…


Changing-Themes-in-WordPressTo the best of my recollection whenever someone has used a Premium Theme on their website I have never been able to just switch over to a new theme without having to make adjustments for the customization that the previous theme had in place.

I’m thinking one thing I would add to this debate/discussion that I think is sort of obvious (at least to me)  is that if you have a Divi based web design in place and want to change to a different looking web design you can still use Divi as the “framework” for that new design and in that case switching between a theme like “Divi Child 1” and “Divi Child 2” is almost effortless.
