I use Divi, built by Elegant Themes, on five different websites. I am not super tech savy and had only ever done a few websites before – wordpress.com and through wix. I found Divi so cool but there was a learning curve. But honestly with the changes they have made to it and with the new ones coming out, I think Divi is going to be able to be used by just about anyone. I love the flexibility it gives – no two sites look alike.
