Battle Suit for Divi


The Battle Suit for Divi by Divi Sensei is a collection of useful Divi modules, extension and overall improvements for the Divi Builder and the Divi Theme by Elegant Themes.

This version contains the following widgets:

  • Bucket: a blurb like module with hover effects, perfect for creating bucket lists or present products
  • Library Layout: inject any layout from the Divi library
  • Post Title: a simple post title module
  • Post Featured Image: display your featured image with all the advantages and settings of the Image module
  • Post Excerpt: a powerful module to display and customise the post excerpt
  • Post Meta: a highly customisable module to display post meta information the way you want it
  • Post Button: a button to link to a post
  • Footer: a module to show the global footer, very useful to for example display the bottom bar on pages using the blank page layouts
  • Video Lightbox: a module to open videos in a lightbox, perfect to replicate the Elegant Themes Blog

Our Post related modules are fully compatible with the loop so you can use plugins like Toolset to completly customize your archive or search pages without coding, using shortcodes or customise your CSS.

What are the Post modules for?

The Post related modules in Battle Suit for Divi have two purposes. The first one is to build custom post layouts and be completely free and not limited by Divis core modules, which have a similar functionality as ours but are often not so powerful.
The second purpose is that our modules can be used inside The Loop to build completely customized archives. A great plugin which works perfectly together with Battle Suit for Divi is Toolset. Together with our Toolset Add-On, your imagination becomes the only limit for building layouts and utilising custom post fields.

Is Battle Suit for Divi really free?

Yes, Battle Suit for Divi is completely free and there is no hidden fee or premium code inside. We will also continue to add more modules and functionality and never charge you a single cent for it.
There are paid add-ons though, which have a very specialised purpose. For example, we have a add-on which adds Toolset related modules and we are working on other add-ons as well.
Nevertheless, there is no need for those add-ons and you can absolutely use all the great features from the free base plugin without ever spending a dime. If you wish to support us, we would highly appreciate it if you could leave a positive review.

I have a problem, what shall I do?

Ideally you would not leave a negative review but contact us directly. currently can’t notify us and we could miss your issue. If you contact us directly, for example via the contact form on our homepage, we can help you faster.


Awesome Plugin

Sounds all too good to be true. Support is the worst ever seen.

Buying the Battle Suit Toolset Addon was such a waste of time and money because lots of features are not working, bad documentation and no attempt to fix them within 3 months.

Why 5 Stars? Because it got me to the point of stopping everything Divi related and made me learn how to migrate from Divi to other solutions.

Sehr hilfreiches Plugin

Für mich ein Plugin was zukünftig in keiner Divi Installation mehr fehlen wird. Neben der einfachen Möglichkeit, Videos über den Visual Builder als Popup aufgehen zu lassen, erweitert das Plugin Divi um weitere Viewports im Frontend Builder. Die “Handy-Ansicht” von Divi ist zu groß für die gängigen Smartphonegrößen (iphone 5,6,7,8), was die mobile Optimierung mit Abständen sehr mühselig macht. Das Plugin erweitert die klassische Handy, Tablet und Desktop Auswahlmöglichkeit um zwei kleinere Darstellungen (z.B. optimal für die Bildschirmgrößen der gängigen Iphones (siehe oben). Von daher 5 Sterne für die Funktion die mir bei Divi schon immer gefehlt hat!

For me a plugin that will not be missing in any future Divi installation. In addition to the easy way to pop-up videos via the Visual Builder, the Divi plug-in adds further viewports in the Frontend Builder. Divi’s “cell phone view” is too big for the popular smartphone sizes (iphone 5,6,7,8), which makes mobile optimization very difficult. The plugin extends the classic mobile phone, tablet and desktop selection options by two smaller displays (for example, optimal for the screen sizes of the common Iphones (see above).) Therefore 5 stars for the function I have always missed with Divi!

Amazing Time saver for laying out custom content using Divi theme

I have been using this plugin since it’s release and find it an amazing time saver.
I use custom post types with custom fields on nearly all my sites and this plugin has cut down my site build time by over 20%.

I look forward to seeing this plugin grow and cannot wait for all the future modules that I hear are planned.
