Astra Theme and Divi Builder

This post is a place for me to collect notes on the Astra Theme, specifically how it relates to Divi, the Divi Builder plugin and my own plugins.

Can you use Divi Builder with the Astra Theme?

Yes, you can use Elegant Theme's Divi Builder functionality on your Astra Theme pages and posts. To do so, first install and enable the Divi Builder plugin, along with the Astra Theme. Then when you start a new post / page you should see the option to "Use Divi Builder", like so:

Click "Use Divi Builder" and you'll be taken to the front-end view of the post with Divi Builder enabled. There you'll be able to add Divi Modules and edit the page as you would on any Divi site.

Does Divi Builder work with the Astra LearnDash Starter Site?

One way to set up a LearnDash site on Astra is to use the preconfigured LearnDash "Starter Site". You don't have to use this to use LearnDash with Astra, but it's an easy way to get started.

However, note that this site is built with the Elementor page builder and as such isn't compatible with Divi or the Divi modules for LearnDash added by my Divi LearnDash Kit. You will still be able to create new pages using the Divi Builder, but you won't be able to edit the existing Elementor ones in Divi Builder.

If you're using Astra / Divi and have any questions about either, please let me know in the comments and I'll do my best to answer them.

  1. Hi. Excellent post! One question, have you tried editing the envato elements + Astra templates with the divi builder once installed? It is that elementor I do not like very much! Cheers!..

    • Hi Samuel, I haven't tried, but if you're talking about these these template kits (https://elements.envato.com/template-kits/) or similar, I think you'll be out of luck, unfortunately. It sounds like these the templates are specifically built in / for Elementor. Divi and Elementor each use their own, mutually incompatible, representations of page layouts so there isn't any easy way to convert from an Elementor template to a Divi Builder layout. Basically I think the only really option is to recreate the templates in Divi Builder by hand… 馃檨
