Divi Cloud is an online cloud storage solution for Divi that allows you to save your Divi layouts in the cloud so they can then be accessed on any of your Divi websites. It is like having a dedicated Google Drive, iCloud, or Dropbox for your Divi assets.
- Access your Divi Cloud account from any website
- Store Divi sections, rows, and modules
- Manage with categories and tags
- Automatic screenshot generation for Divi Cloud layouts
- Search, filter, sort, and favorite layouts
- All features can be used within the Divi Builder
- This is a freemium feature with up to 50 items storage available for free
- $57.60 per year subscription for unlimited storage and usage
This feature is squarely aimed at freelancers and agencies that are creating multiple websites with Divi and provides a huge efficiency benefit for this group. Currently, the Divi Cloud is only for storing and accessing your Divi layouts but there are plans to extend this to all types of Divi assets such as plugins, presets, and theme options.
Let’s take a look at the new features available in the Divi Layouts Cloud.

Adding layouts to the Divi Cloud
There are 3 ways to add your layouts to the Divi Cloud.
- Save from the Visual Builder
- Sync from your Divi Library
- Upload directly
You are able to save your layouts directly from your page or post using the Visual Builder, sync layouts from your local Divi library, or upload layout directly to the Divi Cloud. Once added they are acessible from any website that is logged into your Elegant Themes account.
To add layouts to the Divi Cloud via the Visual Builder you can right click on any Divi section, row, or module and select to “Save To Divi Cloud”. This will launch a popup window to save the layout. You will then be able to give the layout a name and assign an existing or add a new category and/or tags.
To add layouts to the Divi Cloud via the local Divi Library you need to launch the Divi Library in your Divi Builder by clicking on the purple + icon at the bottom of the screen. From here you can click on the tab for “Your Saved Layouts” which will show you both layouts from the website you are working on and that are already in the Divi Cloud.
If you want to add a local layout (only accessible on the website you are working on) to the Divi Cloud (accessible anywhere) then you will need to hover over the layout and click on the grey cloud icon. It will then turn blue to indicate it has been added to the Divi Cloud.
To add layouts to the Divi Cloud via the file importer you need to ldrag-and-drop your JSON files into the Divi Builder. This will launch an import window where you can select to Save To Divi Cloud.
You can add a single JSON file that contains multiple Divi layouts that will then bulk-upload to the Divi Cloud.
Accessing layouts from the Divi Cloud
Once your layout are added to your Divi Cloud account you can access them from any Divi website.
- In the Visual Builder click on the purple circular + icon to the left of the screen to open your Layouts window
- Click on the blue “Sign In To Divi Cloud” button in the top right and use your Elegant Themes username and password to log into your account.
- Select the “Your Saved Layouts” tab at the top of the window and you will see all of your layouts from the current installation you are working on and those in the Divi Cloud.
- Use the checkboxes, dropdowns and search box to filter, search, and manage your layouts. To view only your Divi Cloud layouts click in the “My Divi Cloud” checkbox on the left and it will filter only your cloud layouts.
Automatic screenshots of layouts
When you save new layouts to the Divi Cloud a thumbnail image is automatically generated.
This is an essential feature that allows your to visually identify each layout in your cloud library. Without this feature this whole system would be a lot less efficient.
Currently you do need to refresh the page to see the screenshots rather than the Generating Screenshot placeholder image, but this is a small issue that the team at Elegan Themes will fix up in a future update so be sure to check the Divi Cahngelog regularly.
Managing layouts in the Divi Cloud
Assuming you pay for the premium Divi Cloud service you may well end up with hundreds of layouts and other asset types in the future. To make it easy to manage your layouts there is a category and tag system just like you are used to seeing on blog posts. Each layout can be assigned categories and tags to help you find them when required.
There are a number of options to manage the Divi Cloud items and the Divi layouts included within Divi which will make using layouts faster and easier;
- Import & Export Layouts
- Edit Layouts
- Preview Layouts
- Rename, Recategorize, Retag
- Manage Categories
- Manage Tags (Folders)
- Favorite Items
- Delete & Restore
- Save To Cloud
- Import To Cloud
- Search, Filter & Sort
How much does Divi Cloud cost?
Divi Cloud is a freemium feature included with the Divi Theme and will allow you to save 50 items into your cloud storage account for free. To store more than 50 items will require a paid subscription that can be paid monthly at $8 per month or annually at $72 ($6×12).
Monthly subscriptions are billed monthly and can be canceled at any time. Annual subscriptions are billed annually up front and includes a 25% discount on the monthly option.
There is a Divi Cloud launch special where you can sign up for an annual cost of $57.6 or monthly cost of $6.40.
More features coming soon
At launch the Divi Cloud system on allows you to add and manage Divi layouts but there are many additional features that will be added in the future as duscuees in the roadmap.
These features will include the ability to add;
- Theme Builder Templates
- Divi Cloud Libraries
- Theme Customizer Settings
- Divi Builder Presets
- Code Snippets
- Theme Options
- 3rd-Party Integrations
- Website Exports
- Child Themes & Plugins
- Fonts and Colors
- Divi Builder Settings
Divi Coud is a great option if you are building websites for a living but not really too much use if you are only building 1 or 2 as a DIY’er.
For agencies and teams, the feature will be a huge time saver and allow a team of developers to have easy access to all the assets they need to build a website, especially once the ability to add pluigns, theme options and so on is included.
Perhaps as this feature and its future updates benefit agencies and developers so much, it could be a reason to increase the pricing for people using Divi on multiple websites. The unlimited licensing currently on offer really is a steal for agencies!
