Divi Booster (A solution to some Divi Theme issues)

The Divi theme from Elegant Themes is a complete visual approach to developing web sites.  However, like many products it is not perfect.  Skilled developers often resort to CSS  or java-script to add features that they feel are important to their development effort.

This of course takes time.  Sometimes a plugin will solve the problem meaning that someone else has already completed the coding for  us.  One such plugin is Divi Booster.  It is a small plugin that addresses a number of issues in Divi and  was developed by Dan  Mossop.

My review is based on extensive experience with this plugin.

What I like about the Divi Booster plugin.

  • It is easy to install
  • It is kept up to date with WordPress and Divi versions
  • It is simple to use and
  • I have not had any conflicts with my other plugins or with the Divi theme.

Divi Booster Features

This is the settings screen for the plugin.  Each of the 9 categories of features opens to display the full set of options that can be applied to the Divi theme.  We will look at some of these.

Summary

Divi Booster is a useful tool for developers that use the Divi Theme.  It is not expensive, and features, bug fixes and changes are made quite often.  On a few occasions the Booster plugin was not in sync with the latest version of WordPress and the incompatible  message from the plugin manager would pop-up, however this does not happen often.  You can purchase the Divi Booster plugin here.
