About Our Divi Plugins & Extensions
Divi is an extremely powerful website building tool on it’s own. However, it’s not meant to be able to do absolutely everything. That’s where Divi Plugins (commonly referred to as Divi Extensions) come in. They extend the functionality of Divi to allow you to do new things that were only previously possible with custom coding. You’ll notice the majority of our plugins/extensions help you use the extremely powerful Divi Builder in new and exciting ways. For example, Divi Overlays lets you use the power of the Divi Builder to create full screen overlays and pop-ups, making it the most popular popup plugin for Divi! And then there’s Divi Dashboard Welcome which brings the Divi Builder to the backend, by helping you create a custom Dashboard for your clients or website editing team. And have you ever wanted to create gorgeous full featured mega menus with the Divi Builder? Our Divi Mega Menu plugin (Divi Mega Pro) allows you to do exactly that, along with creating mega tooltips too. These examples show the power of Divi when applied in new ways. These are things that Divi not can’t do on it’s own. Divi plugins to the rescue!

What is a Divi Plugin?
Short Answer: A Divi Plugin is a WordPress plugin that get’s installed on your website to enhance or extend Divi.
You might still be asking yourself what exactly a Divi plugin is. That’s okay, it can be tricky to understand the concept if you’re new to the world of Divi and/or WordPress. Is a Divi plugin different than a WordPress plugin? No, not exactly. Divi Plugins get installed and activated just like normal WordPress plugins do. The difference is, Divi plugins usually require the Divi theme. They may fully require the Divi theme to function (break or show error message without Divi). Or, they won’t function to their potential without Divi. For example, our Divi Dashboard Welcome plugin will still technically work without the Divi theme, however it’s a lot less powerful without the Divi builder. Divi enables the full design potential of the plugin and without it, your forced to use only built in WordPress editing.
Some Divi Plugins will add new modules to Divi, while others will add custom post types. There really isn’t a limit on what a Divi plugin can do. As long as it adds functionality to Divi, then it is considered a Divi plugin.
Divi Plugins vs Divi Modules
What’s the difference between Divi Plugins and Divi Modules? Well, if you add a Divi Module to your website, then more than likely it is being added via a plugin. So all Divi modules are Divi plugins, but not all Divi Plugins are Divi Modules.
Confused? Let’s break it down.
A Divi Plugin is simply the mechanism of adding functionality to Divi. That functionality may be in the form of a new Divi Module, or it may be in the form of something else. For example, the majority of our popular Divi plugins are custom post types. Custom post types are content types within WordPress, and they make it easy to manage content. So for example, with our Divi Popup plugin (Divi Overlays), the custom post type makes it very easy to mange all the popups for the site. And then when you activate the Divi Builder, you can use Divi to create the popup.
Now back to modules. Some Divi plugins will enable many Divi Modules with just the one plugin.
If you’re still unsure about what Divi Plugins and Divi Modules are, that’s okay! We recommend browsing our Divi Plugins on this page (scroll up), and it will give you a tase of what Divi plugins are, and what they are capable of!
