If I pay for the yearly plan with elegant themes, will I have to pay every year in order to use Divi? I just want to use that one theme.
Anthony Darway (2 months ago)
Hey Darrel, thanks for the video. I download the divi footer file but for some reason, I cannot upload it to the test site that I'm building. I use both ways that you show in the video and I'm getting the same error. I even saw that the naming of the footer file in your video wasn't the same as the one in the download (spacing and lack of (1) in the downloaded file) Is there anything that I need to do, or is the footer file corrupt? Thanks for any help.

Hey Darrel, Thank you so much for these informative videos, as someone who is green to wordpress I very grateful to have experts out there like you! Question: I would like to have a blog that has ads on it to create ad revenue, as well as have a business website that sells my products which I would like to have the clean feel of sakara.com should these be the same website with different pages or two different urls (i do not want ads on the landing page or product pages)? For continuity Id like them both to look alike so I am curious which theme will be best for me Divi or Flatsome? in the future I will also be selling digital downloads. Thank you so much in advance for your help! Sincerely, Stacey

Hi Darrel! I downloaded themes from your website and am super excited to use them! I tried installing the themes and am getting a "CSS Style Code" missing. Can you help me fix it? Or direct me what to do? Thanks! ps: I downloaded the Elegance Layout and Divig Coding School Layout. Also watched your course on Udemy

Just watched the whole nearly 3 hour lesson over a few days, great to brush up on what I missed when I taught myself the basics. I now understand how it all works. thanks Darrel. Highly recommend to watch this.. Templates are fine but to know how to really edit something for yourself is good..

The great effort resulted in a very great job, the video is long, rich of info, but honestly, they didn't feel like 3 hours, the time passed very smoothly, my respect and appreciation will never be enough
Hi there, great video, unfortunately, the whole homepage I've been working on all day long has somehow gone back to default settings :(. Any ideas how I can get it back?
Darrel Wilson (8 days ago)

If Id built this kind of website for a client what would be the process of handing the website with its hosting and domain over to him? is it possible to get a tutorial on this, please?
Darrel Wilson (9 days ago)
you can either host it on your server ( charge them a free) or do it on theirs. I would do it on yours however in case theirs problems later
Aretus Smith Jr (9 days ago)
Why go there all the details of information of adding text to the website without adding Logo, why not work from the top down? or when are you working on Menu add the Logo then? Otherwise Great Tutorial.

*_BA >> _**_oportunity.businesshub.pro_**_ is the best business decision I've made. It has all the tools you need to run a successful business, plus more for under $30! That's not a typo. I would pay the fee just to have access to the people in the group and Alex and Erick's mentoring. This company listens to what us and then takes action and creates it or fixes it if there is a bug. The app creator and Facebook Leads Capture are my latest favorite tools! Wow... I can have fun, make money, help others and have approachable and ethical leaders that care!_*

Will McAllister (27 days ago)
Hi Darrel! Phew I finally got through the whole video as I have had to intersperse it through a busy business. Thanks for the excellent tutorial and I have subscribed and joined your WP group. One question - I have purchased the Divi theme and want to change my present WP sites over to Divi. There are three "panels" offered by Divi ("Build from Scratch", "Choose a Premade Layout", and "Clone Existing Page"). My qusestion is, would you use the third one, clone existng page, do change an existing WP site? - or have you dne a tutorial on this subject? thanks again, Will
Matt Slick (27 days ago)
I have a suggestion. Go through stuff more slowly. I have on ONE screen my wordpress site and your video on another screen. Going back and forth between screens takes time as I try and copy what you're doing...but you go so quickly that and i find myself missing what you're doing.

Darrel Wilson I just watched your video all over again and I have a couple of questions hoping u can help me out. Do we need to have a divi license in order to make changes to a child theme?, also when I go into the wp dashboard theme customizer it doesn’t show me the website next to the menu, is there a reason why that’s happening?

The Promise by Alkana (1 month ago)
Darrel, FYI, Divi is not the best page builder. I like Beaver Builder way better, because the following reasons. It is more feature rich without using CSS code than Divi. B.B. is more intuitive in my opinion than Divi. B.B. is fun to use too. As of this writing Divi is playing a catchup game to B.B. I am upset because I took your recommendation that Divi was the best. I played with Divi for one month and a half and I can’t get my money back. I don’t think it’s so great like everyone claims it is.

Hey Darrel, when your talking about the custom headers near the end of the video, when I put in one of the custom headers then try to add a pre made layout it overrides the header and the header disappears, any idea why that is?

Thanks Darrel. I am actually trying on add page. But looks like I do not have the Divi builder plugin installed since I do not have that plugin. Do you have any advise on an alternative to that plugin?Thanks again

When you put Our Services then enlarged SERVICES, the word SERVICES went under 'Our Services'. Mine just pushes Our Services down & will not go behind it. Thanks for any help. I am almost through the first hour but am in my 3rd hour in my step by step process as I pause/play while doing each step. Thanks for the time you gave putting this together.

Another great tutorial, so i will be coming back to this later, to copy some of the sections  : )   BTW, i looked through your tutorials, but didn't find ... how to create a Sign Up Form like the one shown at the bottom of this web page (with the button labeled 'YES! I'M A DIVI LOVER!'):  https://divilover.com/slim-divi-optin-form-module-layout/  - Q/. can i get a WordPress widget /plugin to do this, if so please let me know the details. Or if anybody can give me a link to a tutorial that shows how to create it, that will be great. Thanks  : )

Hey Darrel. That's hands down the best tutorial I have ever watched. I was pulling my hair out the previous week and with a stroke of luck came across your channel. Thanks for putting in so much effort, it's honestly better than paid courses on the subject. I hope the affiliate links make it rain down your end.

After initially being quite excited about this (I'm new to wordpress) but after a good review of the web and talking to professional developers, they tell me Divi loads your code with short-codes and bloated apps - and these are not good for SEO. Also, if you try to change the site builder down the road, the website breaks. Any comment on this Darrel?
Be A Living Miracle (2 months ago)
Conor, Hi. Darrel has a great video that compares/contrasts pros and cons of Divi and Elementor page builders. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R7636QIopMg) I am in the same situation you are in.
Darrel Wilson (2 months ago)
if you switch from any theme or builder the site breaks, so thats a pretty poor argument, its the #1 theme in the world for a reason, let laters hate! join the divi family

Great video Darrel. My client has a website currently. How would you recommend I build the site separate from their domain and then switch their domain after? Do I just buy a fake domain or can I build a sit using a subdomain like sub.domain.com??
