A framework is the foundation, the building blocks, for something to exist inside the frame.
A theme is a design element that uses the framework. This website was built with the Divi Framework using the modules.
What is a Theme?
A theme has a specific style used throughout the website. A Framework is something used to mold the style. The style is built onto the framework.
Where do you start?
With the Divi Framework.
It is the ideal place to begin to take in the whole concept of building a website. With no knowledge of code, or how a website works, you can build one with the Divi Framework.
The Framework is specifically designed to assist you to build a website.
We’re faced with a changing world. In the last two or three years we have seen nothing but change. Different ways of doing things.
Whoever thought you would order groceries online, or read an electronic book instead of a paper one. We now use systems and software daily.
The Divi Theme is the most used theme in the world, and has been translated into thirty two different languages.
Translated into thirty-two different languages is a fact, not a sales pitch.
Divi is so successful it is the go-to Framework for developers and designers to create their Templates for websites.
The whole structure of the framework is a different way to work on a website.
This blog post is written using the Divi Visual Builder. As I’m entering text into the text module, I can see how the text looks on the page directly.
Of course there is more to building a website than entering text onto a page.
As you enter the text into the Text Settings module you see your edits on the page at the same time.
This helps you understand how to balance the content so it is easy to read. One of the major problems with webpage content is writing to much content.
In The Divi Framework
Built in tools:
The Divi Library, predefined page layouts
The Divi Builder, layout modules and then preview
The Visual Builder, use modules on the page directly
Every module has built in settings. If you don’t know what an icon does, click on it to find out.
The framework pulls the components of the website into place. Initially, you can use the premade layouts in the Divi Library.
Once you get used to how the modules work you’ll find you start creating your own specific style and layout with the Divi Framework.
