Using Divi ThemeUse Divi Theme
What the hell is this strange little rose hairy chick telling me which WordPress theme to use? Now, my spirited boyfriend, I've both created my own web sites with Divi. This was AFTER trying out several other WordPress topics. Today I will show you how to create your own weblog or your own website with the Divi WordPress theme.
Let's begin with how to get Diviand and have it installed on your WordPress page. Click here to go to the Elegant Themes website. However, if you run your blog/business like a retail store, I want to urge you to put your money into it - at least enough to make your website look good.
To me, using the Divi theme means that I would have saved a SHITLOAD of amount of working hours (literally months) that I would otherwise have devoted to the development of my website. This was a simple way to gather e-mail accounts, make changes to my site instead of hiring someone for every little thing, and finally build a blogsite that would help me turn my blogs into a full-time one.
It' re rewarding to have a hot web site if you ask me. As soon as you have created an affiliate profile, login and click on the rose "Download" icon for the Divi theme. Then you should see how the downloading starts. Here you have to open a new tab/window and login to WordPress.
Then click on "Upload topic" at the top of the page. If you do, you will see the ability to zip the Divi WordPress theme. You do that, and BUM - you have Divi, my boyfriend. Well, let's discuss how to use the so beloved Divi Builders - this is the tools you can use to create your websites.
You will see this when you post a new page to your WordPress Blog (by selecting "Pages" in the page bar >>> "Add New"): You' ll need to click on the lilac "Use The Divi Builder" icon above to get the magical process going, so go ahead and do it.
Here you will create your page with the Drag-and-Drop-Builder. I would like to briefly explain a few Divi fundamentals here: "Download from the Library" - If you don't want to create your website yourself, Divi offers many pre-defined layout options to select from.
Look at this if you're not sure where to begin. Duplicating a section - you can do this by pressing the small Multiply pushbutton to the right of this section (which consists of 2 intersecting fields - see picture below). Modify section preferences - This is done by selecting the small 3-bar icon to the right of this section (see picture below).
So if you already feel a little bit overburdened, don't be worried - this shit will make much more sense when you get in and play with the Divi theme. So, I suggest that you go ahead and get the Divi theme as you are willing to build a website - then go along with the remainder of the posting and try every move for yourself.
First click on the "Insert column(s)" pushbutton. So let's say you want to make a section on your website with 3 pictures and 3 text fields like this (drawn from my copwriting website business): Then your Divi Builder looks like this: Now you can add the desired "modules". You can then load any picture.
After uploading your picture, click on "Save and Exit" and you will see that the plugin has been added to the Builders. Well, at this point you can use the same procedure for the other 2 moduls. Or you can just copy the already existing picture engine and move it to the desired position.
I' d like to move it down a bit, so I go back to Divi Builder and insert a new line (by pressing "Add Line" and choosing the Full Width option). As soon as I click on "Insert modules" in my new line, I can choose "Divider" to generate a blank area above my image/text line.
I' m going to adjust the altitude to 50 and click on "don't show divider" so that it is displayed as a whitespace and not as an real line splitter. Well, I got this in my Divi-Builder: This is how it looks on my web site, where the divisor was added as space:
It looks much better with that little room of whitespace there! Again, you can always get a children theme to make your website even simpler to launch. Here, too, it is best to try out the Divi theme yourself and begin to experiment. This will be your best choice to learn how to use it and quickly set up your blogs website.
Well, I've already shown you an example of how to use the Divi WordPress theme. However, let's take a look at a page on my copwriting web site to get a better understanding of how everything works. However, before you begin to build your website, let us give you a few fast hints.
Make a general outline of how you want to configure your pages first. Take a stylus and begin to figure out what your website should look like. If, for example, you want to build a portfolios page for your blogs, you don't need to select the Portfolios page at all.
Instead, I only used alternate picture and text blocks. Don't be scared to get too inspired - you MUST not use the module the way Divi is telling you! Act, click here to get WordPress/Divi, and setup your website NOW so you can embark on a journey to build a viable company.
Bring something good out there (which is fairly simple to do if you use Divi!) and optimize/improve it as you expand your company over the years. Here is a blogs posting containing affilate link for the Divi WordPress theme (which I only refer because I am using it on my two personal web sites and loving it).
The resulting revenue will probably flow directly back into my blogs or buy small t-shirts for my Chihuahua.
