Divi WordPress Theme - My Review

Divi WordPress Theme
Divi is a WordPress theme that web designers do not want you to know. It comes with a drag-and-drop theme builder. You can build beautiful looking unique websites without touching a line of code. Just choose from one of the many pre-made layouts, or pick elements and arrange them any way you like.

Divi is every WordPress developer's wet dream. Surprise your clients with neat responsive websites and have fun building them.

Divi comes from Elegant Themes. If you enjoy building websites, you *need* an Elegant Themes membership. 87 beautiful themes and 5 plugins for the cost of less than a candy-bar each!

Note: I am an avid user of Divi myself and this is a honest review. I wouldn't recommend something that I do not personally find amazing.

    Hi Arun
    Actually it adds to 12 chances (4+4+4) stumble + digg + stumble

    and here’s another 7 chances added to them :

    and another 5 chances for subscribing to windows4beginners: forward2friend[at]gmail[dot]com

    total : 24 chances 🙂

    • Arun says:

      Hey you messed it up. Actually you can have a max of 20 chances only, If you do both jobs from one bulleted point, you will get only one set of points..? Got it..?

      For e.g. if you Stumble and Digg Beauty Make Up Divas you will get 4 more chances not 8. Sorry for that.

      But dont worry, 20 chances is not bad, you will win for sure, if the participation wont shoot up in the next 10 days

      Happy New Year
