Most of my viewers always ask me about divi vs elementor. I personally think both are great page builder. The elementor page builder pro is a good option as well as the divi theme ( both are way better than visual composer )

The divi theme is the most popular wordpress page builder with over 1 million active installs, it remains the most used wordpress theme in the world!
Elementor PRO is nearing 1 million installs with more and more wordpress themes adopting it on envato market. ( which is good because than we would be stuck with visual composer )
I hope you enjoy this review on the divi theme vs elementor. Again both are great page builders

I love your videos. I think you’re right on all accounts. I wished I’ve seen your video sooner. I could of save some money buying Divi instead of Elementor. I believe Divi would of been better suited for me. I might just purchase Divi too.
WordPress changed my life. Elegant Theme's Divi has changed my life. The founder, Nick Roach, has a beautiful spirit and I trust his direction for the future. Their theme support is the best I've ever used.
whenever i edit my pages in elementor and click update it does not update to the live website but i can still view them within elementor itself. I have tried clearing all cache, what can i do or what am i doing wrong?
hi, i watched the whole thing, very detailed thank you. the thing is if u use both divi and elementor.. , which means u have to pay for both company.
im looking to build a membership site for online training, like online course and videos for members. which theme would you recommand? I don't want to end up using both, too much for my budget
Thanks for your video Darrel! It's great to get true, honest and factual pro's and con's for each builder. It has helped me a lot!
I just have one question, are you able to install these builders and use them to build on Themes which are purchased from a different Author? For example, if I was to purchase a theme from Themeforest that comes default with another builder (ex. WP Bakery) - can I remove the default page builder and replace if with Divi or Elementor to edit the website?
thanks for nice and informative video, just curious about whether these two are comparable, I mean use DIVI for some block of the page and then move into Elementor and edit the same part there.
One more question, you demonstrated Flatsome them and their page builder in one of your videos, how would you compare? just in a few word.
Wow, what a great channel. I just came across this video while trying to find a theme for my blog and I'll definitely subscribe to it.
Thanks for sharing these reviews as really help newbies like me, great work Darrel!
Almost choked on my drink at the Rocky III opening, omg lol
I've never used Divi, but I like what I saw. I think having different page builders/themes for different sites is a smart way to go. Adopt the tool which best fits the solution you're providing to your client. These things are so cheap, it's kind of a no-brainer to take advantage of several than limit yourself to one. Great video, loved it!
the best review of both builders. i would watch it over and over again. Straight to the point and no sale sale sale talking. I have watched tons of other reviews but nothing i mean nothing compares to your review. Well done. I look forward to more reviews of the same level of explanation and accuracy.
You pointed it out correctly what is the purpose of each one right in the end. Elementor is good for blogging etc and DIVI is good for businesses site. Simple as that...
Not to forget to mention about the three hosting companies you named. I think you (in my personal opinion) forgot to mention inmotionhosting. These guys are good based on price, tech and support. My very resent site (https://zodiacgenie.com) is just rocketing with a minimal vps package let alone if i decide to upgrade which i look forward to do so without the slightest hesitation. Soon after watching the video i checked all three hosting you mentioned and they are quite expensive, but hey this is just my personal opinion.
Again this is the greatest review video and hope other reviewers can learn a few things or two from you on how to make a review video and not just sale sale sale.
BTW i rarely subscribe so you have earned my subscription.
Thank you so much for your comparison. I totally agree that they both have its unique edge. Depends on the purpose of the website and preference, each theme is better then the other. I am using divi because its more visual then eliminator, but it turns out that I really needs to have a better editing power on my products page. Great review!!!
THANK YOU for addressing the short code “problem” with Divi. I see people mention this all the time based on the Chris Lema article and it drives me nuts.
As you mentioned, there’s no theme or page builder plugin (or any plugin, really) that’s going to offer a seamless switch if you decide to change.
The only situation I can imagine where this may matter: if a page builder generated static HTML and you had a very large site, you could move to a new page builder and simply add CSS and JS to globally style the legacy content. But the minute you want to actually work with any of it inside of the new page builder, you’re rebuilding it in that product natively.
If it’s a downside for Divi, it’s a downside for almost every single WP theme or plugin in existence.
Great video👍🏻...I have been using the Divi plugin for some years. I believe Divi has a better community also. And their blog is daily updates with a lot of great info with regard hard to website building and Wordpress in general. And they provide some awesome free templates weekly. Which are just so good. I have tried only the free version of elementor. So not sure of the full features on that.
but nowadays I don't need to pay in full amount for elementor pro... I can get it for $5 at fiverr... check it out... (No Wonder Elementor Pro Has their disclosure on reselling). Does the seller on fiverr break the rules or just bend it?
Hi Darrel, I really enjoy your videos.. the way you explain things make it very easy to understand for an absolute newbie like me :) I would be so grateful if you could do a video on child themes...I keep hearing about these damn child themes and that people should install them but I really dont grasp the concept of what they are and how to go about setting them up :) PS. if you decide to make the video, it would be sooooo awesome if you "aim" it towards people who have NO IDEA about the idea (like myself) because iv seen a few videos but the people speak as if all their subscribers have a slight understanding about what child themes are :) thanks
Great review! Any recommendations for themes for someone who's somewhere in-between an amateur and a full out developer? I'm looking for a theme that is more bare-bones - has all of the structural elements built so I don't need to do it from scratch, but without all the design/bloat of themes like Divi.
I’ve been a Divi user since it came out as well as an elegant themes user since they came out. As far as large sites, Sheridan.com is over a 1300 page site with complicated menus, side menus, blogs, archives, and basically a four site website in one not on multiuser. The client was very specific down to padding in specific areas. It was difficult but since turning it over in December they have done an amazing job updating their site on a weekly basis with content. So yes you can use Divi on large complex websites. On the woocommerce side of things this site gynmarketing.com only has 45 products but is tied to a robust web to print fulfillment house. A few plugins went into this and I could have decorated or achieved different looks from the shear perspective that Divi has a robust developer option. In my opinion Elementor while a good builder is no where near where Divi is. I’ve developed and designed over 50+ Divi sites and each one can be different. As a designer thankfully I’m not tied to making a theme work in my or the client’s design idea because Divi can be anything you want it to be.
Elementor is far more advanced. It has a woocommerce builder that allows you to fully customize product pages, checkout pages and more. The only real competitor to Elementor is really Beaver Builder. Divi is a second-class page builder.
There it is folks! So I have actually built sites on both builders. I have come to love each for different features. I do have the pro version of Elementor, and to be honest don't see a huge value in it...YET. I am sure if I get a client wanting a more functional WOO Commerce it would be helpful to have, I did use the contact form which is pre built in the pro version. It was nice and simple. But not sure worth the extra price. As for Divi I have struggled with the design for a Blog page made with them. I actually have switched from Divi to extra and back to divi, I did however finally find a somewhat of a fix to cleaning up and making the site look more like a blog and still get mobile functionality. Due to im sure Darrel having affiliates I wont name them here, but I am somewhat happy with the outcome. It is safe to say this year has been a learning curve, and couldn't have done it without this channel. Thank you sir.
Hi, wilson can you help me how to setup shiopping time on woocommerce, i'm using alidropship plugin and i don't know how setup shipping time of product after a lot of search i'm not getting any possible solution?
Hello Darrel, thanks for your video. So, regarding the hosting, here you will find in a review someone that complains about it to Elementor: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/no-white-label-not-open-source-no-diy-allowed/
No Hosting means: some hosting companies offer one-click installation of the apps such as Wordpress and Drupal and etc... and also some of them including into this installations some plugins that are ready to use. For Example, there is Visual Compose already included into the installation of Wordpress on some Hostings one-click app install...
Hi, You need to make a remark - Elementor Pro for $199 is not for Year - once you purchase it you can use it for a lifetime - it's only Support and Updates are for one year... It's won't stop working after one year...
ah, sorry ;o) forgot about this ;o) but in reality, I'm working as IT Specialist and every time I have a computer to fix there are Tons of updates are pending on Windows - so that is my own experience saying that nobody cares about updates. An ordinary user does not even aware he had to do the updates. And most of the times the updates are completely switched off by some another IT Technician.
+Konstantin Pulman Why are you asking me? You're the one who brought up Windows Updates!
"How about those people who using Windows and do turning off Windows Updates? A lot of the updates are about the security - but nobody cares ;o))))"
+Darrel Wilson that's true, just making point that it's not $199 every year which I totally agree with you, should be much more. I'm using Elementor since day one and will update it every year, just love to work with it. Also, I love your channel buddy, did learn plenty from you, thx for your dedication.
LOL! few days ago you were against Divi and i Commented on u "Is divi not paying you AnyMore?" and you mind it and BLOCKED me On FB LOL now i think Divi knock your door with Full of $$$ Envelope.
Hope here you will also Block me LOL!!
It depends on what you mean by customization. Divi has more in-depth options for design, but Elementor Pro has more out of the box modules that can fit your needs without customization. Divi has lot of really good child themes, but the plugins are often very limited. For example, you can't use visual builder for Divi overlays which is one of the most popular Divi plugins. While Elementor plugins integrate almost seamlessly. And of course you can use CSS.
Visual Composer is still heavily used in Themeforest themes, but personally I find it super slow, buggy and not very intuitive. Its maybe slightly better than Avada, but I believe superior builders such as Elementor / Divi will take their market.
Darrel, i absolutely love Elementor and i wish they had an E commerce feature which as i haven't seen anything yet but you stated sometime ago they were working on it. It isn't a matter of liking Divi vs. Elementor, i find the Elementor flows better in function than Divi. I am using Flatsome for my Ecommerce and i find it rather confusing, but thanks to your video's, oh thank god!
As of right now it seems fair to say that Elementor provides more control and dynamic customization due to the power of their visual theme builder. Giving you the ability to design custom headers, footers, blog posts, and more. It can be frustrating when your theme doesn't allow you to change these things easily, without extensive coding or tweaking of php / theme files. Currently Elementor is leading the pack for this reason. But Divi just announced they will be releasing a theme builder nearly identical to Elementors in the future.
I also agree that competition is accelerating change and encouraging all the page builders to release new features. Brizy as you mentioned looks promising, but isn't quite on the same level just yet. But they will have an awesome theme builder like Elementor.
Thrive themes is another amazing page builder that has really been hustling hard as well. Like Divi they include a lot of powerful pluggins with their membership...and have also integrated a visual header / footer builder...and will be releasing an amazing theme builder 100% visual like Elementor very soon (already in beta).
My top four builders that really you can't go wrong with..
1. Elementor Pro
2. Thrive Architect (membership)
3. Divi builder (membership)
4. Brizy pro
All these have amazing visual builders, and already or very soon will release visual theme builders ( which give us designers full control to edit our entire sites ) without coding!
Wow! This is by far THE BEST review I've seen on Divi vs Elementor and I've seen many of those. It pointed out pros and cons for both. Nothing was left out even the shortcode argument which is a complete BS in my opinion. No matter which site you take, you can't just slap on a new page builder and it's done. You still need to build the site from ground up. Use find/replace if you need to remove shortcodes quickly.
I personally use both depending on the client's requirements.
When I'm building an eCommerce site or a blog then I prefer using Elementor. Darrel mentioned all the right reasons (more out of the box modules, more options etc).
However, when I'm building a website for a small or medium size offline business then I'm using Divi. I find Divi easier to work with and the export/import features are awesome. By now I have over 100 custom modules so it's super easy to import them into any new design.
Last but not least, the Divi community is awesome. Facebook groups, podcasts, forums and YouTube channels like this one.
I think Darrel said it right in FB, when you offer something for free you attract certain kind of audience. I feel that Divi is mostly targeted towards developers(great import options, lifetime membership, advanced design settings etc.), while Elementor is trying to serve also DIY users with their free version and that audience doesn't always know how to act professionally. This is not a rule and I'm not saying Elementor has less professional users. It could also be that I wasn't part of the right Elementor groups.
My only concern with Divi is that they are spending way too much time on adding smaller updates, while they should probably focus all their energy on post type, header, WooCommerce etc. Elementor seems to focus more on bigger ticket items which will be deciding factors for new users.
You haven't compared these 2 head to head, but for example you have a few videos comparing front end builders (Elementor, Beaver Builder, Divi etc).
Such as this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iPeA-VQI7LE&feature=youtu.be&t=1413
One might say, it's a review from 2017 and a lot has changed, but in terms of search it still comes up at the top for some keywords. If you take Divi & Elementor review from that video then personally I do find it one sided.
This is my personal opinion and I stand by it, but now reading my post the second time I've realized that it was not fair to call out your channel.
I do like your Divi review which brought out the good, bad and the ugly. So saying it's always one sided is greatly exaggerating and when it comes to Elementor then your videos have helped me.
Anyway, I'm not trying to get into an argument here because that's not the topic and I have edited my post as it wasn't fair to call out your channel like that. The comments should be about Darrel's video, so thank you for pointing this out.
How so? Where am I being one sided? I have never compared these 2 in a video and if you take a moment to read my written comparison it is not one sided in the slightest. So please go read it before saying things like this.
it seems like you haven't go to WordPress setting at all sad.
You can set how much blog post to be shown on your blog by Settings >> Reading set how much blog.
And 2nd Elementor doesn't have lot of templates i get that part but other 3 party plugin provide that template like Envato-elements plugin.
Have you ever check those plugin ?
I do not agree with you
Please provide a new video and describe themify weaknesses.
As well as the strengths for elementor and divi.
Please do that.
what they can do easy but themify can't do?
I'm using avada and I'm searching for something else - problem is it's not drag/drop visual as customizable as avada is - it also totally stinks at mobile integration, it doesn't actually look like what avada is showing you.... thus, searching for something better. Monstroid2/divi/elementor and which one to get from where - is it free is it $5 is it $89???
I just like that these two are pushing each other to improve. When I first heard about PageBuilders, BeaverBuilder was the one I heard most about. Interesting, there is a plugin called Envato by Theme Forest which appears to give multipage sites to Elementor. It’s not built in but it’s an option.
I’m liking what Brizy is doing. I know they are even a blimp on the map, but neither was E two or three years ago. I look at Brizy and it’s like they are trying to take the best of each and then adding their own to it.
I have noticed E’s innovations seem to be slowing. Notices I get these days are about features but rather showing off designs they’ve done. But that I guess is to be expected as they become a more mature platform.
I signed onto Divi because I kept hearing all of the comments that support was so much better. Well, that isn't what I found. I ran into a wall very early on and couldn't get a bit of help with my problem. It was so bad that after a week or so of the run-around, I refunded and I've been using Elementor with no problems since. Elemento is also free for much of what you have to pay Divi for if that's of any concern.
Now, I should say that it sounds like Divi has added some extended help options in the year since I dumped it, so maybe it has improved. Also, I was an early convert to Beaver Builder, but that platform hasn't evolved in the past two years. In fact, next time it comes up for renewal I won't be sticking with it.
We run everything on Divi, but their support is terrible - at least for more advanced issues/bugs. IDK how it compares to Elementor’s, but I’d say 2/3 of my requests end in me just giving up after several futile attempts at getting the support tech to even understand the issue. I love the platform and still think it’s the best, but in my experience support is not a reason to choose it.
Okay I am still confused as to what to use so since I am using elementor I guess I will stick with it for now. (yeah I basically have no idea what I am doing anyways. - in fact I even learned stuff I didn't know just watching this video about how elementor works
I'd say it depends on your website requirements. Both are good options, but at the same time both have their advantages.
If you're a building a simple eCommerce site or a blog for yourself then go with Elementor.
If you're a developer and you'll be targeting business clients then go with Divi.
A much talked about debate regarding these two page builder, sure i might make some enemies in this video, but here goes! Let me know what you think about these two page builders below! Elementor also kicked me out of their Facebook group after this review. Really immature. Here is a new divi theme tutorial for 2019: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e1RkMMyjkOM&t=251s
No Darrel your not making enemies, instead your providing more solid reasoning for and against using a product. Divi gives a lot of value in templates layouts and very strong community. Elementor has gained an advantage by releasing advanced dynamic features. But soon many others will be releasing their visual theme builders, so the odds will be changing!
