What is a Divi plugin?
A Divi plugin is a WordPress extension that can be installed on a website using the Divi theme or Divi Builder plugin to add extra functionality or new features.
A Divi plugin is the same as any WordPress plugin, except for the fact that it has been designed to work specifically with the Divi Theme. Just like any WordPress plugin, a Divi plugin is used to add extra features and functionality to your website.
There are plugins for every aspect of Divi. You can find roundup posts in our blog such as our post on Divi plugins for bloggers, Divi plugins for headers, Divi contact form plugins, Divi SEO plugins, and Divi plugins for adding image galleries.
Divi plugins are created by Elegant Themes and by third-party developers and are designed to extend the functionality of Divi by adding new features and tools that are not included in the core theme or builder. Some examples of Divi plugins include modules for adding advanced animations, custom post types, or additional design options for specific elements.
Divi plugins can be downloaded from various marketplaces, such as the official Divi marketplace or independent developer websites. They can be installed on a website in the same way as any other WordPress plugin and activated from the WordPress dashboard.
Where to find Divi Plugins?
There are a number of Divi developers creating plugins for Divi and a number of different places you can look to find the plugin you need.
This page on divithemeexamples.com lists all of the best plugins for Divi but there are more available in the community if you can’t find what you are looking for here.
Here are some of the best places to find Divi plugins:
- The official Elegant Themes Divi marketplace lists all the best Divi plugins, which are also vetted for quality.
- There are now many 3rd-party developers who sell plugins through their own websites. Plugins listed on divithemeexamples.com link to the developers’ website to buy direct.
- There are a growing number of useful free Divi plugins being released via the official WordPress.org plugin repository.
- Elegant Themes comes with the Monarch and Bloom plugins which are compatible with any WordPress website, and they have also released a couple of small plugins that work specifically with Divi.
How much does a Divi Plugin cost?
Pricing for Divi plugins will vary considerably depending on the complexity of the plugin to the pricing strategy of the developer but the range is currently from free to $189.
Some plugins are free, some are based on a freemium pricing model, and some are sold as premium plugins.
When choosing a premium plugin be aware that some developers will charge an auto-renewing license fee every year. Whilst this is a good way to ensure the plugin remains financially viable for the developer it can come as a surprise for the customer.
Some plugins are also available as part of a developers’ membership plan which gives access to all of their Divi products. If you are going to use several of their plugins, child themes, or other products it may well be better value for you.
There are a number of great free plugins for Divi available, but if a plugin is not generating income then there is a greater chance that they may have to abandon the plugin and stop releasing any updates and/or bug fixes.
Elegant Themes and Divi developers will have at least one sale a year with the Black Friday sales having the biggest discounts. Elegant Themes also have a summer sale and anniversary sale, and many of the third party developers have regular sales throughout the year.
