When you install Divi you’ll get 46 powerful modules, such as Number Counters, Maps and Sliders. But sometimes your design requires additional resources. Luckily, there are a bunch of good plugins developed specifically for Divi. Here is a list of the top five free Divi plugins (+ two bonuses) that will give your WordPress experience a nutritious injection.
1. Divi Icon Expansion Pack
Are you fed up with the +380 standard icons in the Divi Blurb module? Now you can add over 300 fresh icons with everything from social media logos to cats and dogs. As a generous bonus, you will also get all icons as image files in the formats PNG, SVG, AI, and PSD. Thanks to Aspen Grove Studios!
2. Battle Suit for Divi
Here you have no less than nine brand new modules for Divi. Here are my top three favorites: The first is the Bucket module which is an improved version of Divi Blurb module with hover effects. The second one is the Video Lightbox that does exactly what you think it does: Videos are displayed in a nice lightbox (just as the videos in the Elegant Themes blog). My third new favorite module is Footer that allows you to add the global footer on pages with the blank template (or to any other page or row, actually). Thanks to Divi Sensei!
3. Divi Article Card
The boxed Divi blog grid is one of the most distinctive design features of the theme. Even though you can easily add borders and shadows, the design options are pretty limited. Divi Article Card is a small plugin that gives the blog grid a more vibrant look and feel with a nice hover effect and a more dynamic meta text presentation. Enable the plugin and choose your color and you’re done. Thanks Elegant Themes!
4. Divi Extended Column Layouts
Update: Good news! Elegant Themes has doubled the amount of column options in the Divi Builder. You will not need this plugin anymore.
Divi lets you design with several different combinations consisting of one, two, three and four columns. But what if you need more variations? With this plugin you double your options with with five, six, seven and eight columns.
5. Divi Hamburger Menu
With mobile Internet traffic accounting for more than 70% of the total web traffic, it’s more important than ever to have a good mobile user experience. To be honest, the default Divi mobile menu is a remnant from the time before the mobile revolution. This little plugin lets you choose between 20 different styles for your Hamburg menu. Bon appetite and thanks again Elegant Themes!
