Divi Builder Is Shit

Divi Builder is Shit

I have played and worked with almost any WordPress page builder. Visual Composer (now under the shitty name: WPBakery Page Builder), Beaver Builder, Onion Builder, and now the Divi Builder.

I must say, while WPBakery Page Builder has the worst of all the names, it still works best. The Divi Builder as most of its friends is so annoying colorful, nonstandard and slow It is an insult to any professional web developer.

I simply cannot stand  its pseudo eye candy bulky menus and „oh so funny“ module names (WTF is a blurb module)? And even more so iI cannot understand its success. It should simply not exist as it is a junky piece of software that i hope will vanish (just as all the other page builders) when WordPress incorporated its own system: Gutenberg. Still looking forward to the future.

Addendum: It is not only the Divi Builder that sucks. It is the whole Divi theme. For instance you don’t even have a breadcrumps menu. And they really advise oyu to use that bloated yoast plugin to get one. Also the Divi Builder lacks many basic options like simple icon! You would need a paid addon for that. OMFG.

  1. Yes, I absolutely hate the new WP ‚visual builder‘. Even adding a simple image is a fucking pain in the ass. It is a steaming, fucking pile of SHIT!!!

  2. Ich geb dir da von vorne bis hinten Recht!
    Das schlimmste was ich bis jetzt benutzen musste, weil es vorgeschrieben wurde. Dabei kann der Divi Page Builder außer bunt zu sein nicht viel, Brot kann mehr 😉
    Es fehlen jegliche Möglichkeiten, gute Layouts mit unterschiedlicher Containerbreite zu bauen (z.B. Full Width Background mit normal-breitem Overlay). Langsam bis zur Ermüdung und für all die, die ’nen Blogbeitrag veröffentlichen wollen. Für mehr besser nicht.

  3. Divi is shit, but you lost all credibility when you praised WPBakery Page Builder, which is the shittiest WordPress builders known to mankind. Its major popularity can only be attributed to it being the very first of its kind. „Professional web developers“ do NOT use builders. Only script kiddies are excited about any of these shit builders, and looks like you are one of them.

    1. Yes you are right – partly. Of course „really professional“ web developers dont use a page builder. But – if they do, or the client wants to – at least they should not use DIVI. And the major problem I have with Divi is that is is hyped like whatever. But he system itself is cringeworty. And furthermore, this is a rant. So, yes, it might be exaggerated on purpose. 🙂
