Building Your Website
Now, I don’t know about you, but I love working on things from scratch. Be it a Lego set, or a Minecraft map, I just cherish the freedom of working on something new. And that’s exactly what Divi lets you do.However, if you just don’t have the time to do that, Divi has the option of starting with predefined layouts. You can also import compatible layouts from other websites. This feature is especially useful if you’re planning to design multiple websites using Divi.Getting started is quite easy. All you need to do is click on the ‘Use The Divi Builder’ button after you create a new page. You’ll get two options after that – the default editor and the visual builder.Honestly, for me, the choice is a no-brainer. The visual builder is surely the way to go if you want a live preview of your website while building it.
The Divi Builder
The Divi builder has everything you’d need to design a fantastic website. However, if you know a bit of CSS and want to fine-tune some modules, Divi makes it a breeze to add custom CSS. In fact, you can add it to each module, the entire page or even the whole website (using the Theme Customizer).I’ve already posted an in-depth review of Divi on my website, and if you’re interested, I suggest you check it out here
Like Divi, X Theme also gives you the option of starting from scratch. But, apart from that, you get many custom layouts, which are labeled ‘Demo Content.’ I suggest trying out some of the layouts first, especially if you’re building niche websites like a Restaurant or Wedding website.The X Theme comes with a builder known as the Cornerstone. And it’s quite similar to Divi when it comes to the choice of modules and customization options.
X Themes Cornerstone Builder
In my opinion, Cornerstone is an excellent builder. However, I feel that Divi’s builder interface is a tad superior. You see, when you’re editing your website with Cornerstone, it divides the page into two columns – the workspace and preview area.Divi, on the other hand, gives you a full-page preview and lets you add modules by clicking the ‘+’ buttons. You can also hover over modules for further customization options.
