Back in December 2018, Elegant Themes announced that they’d be launching a Gutenberg Block module within the Divi Theme.

Unfortunately, almost a year later, this feature has not yet materialized. In fact, I could not find any reference to this feature being developed at all!
I love Divi theme – it makes WordPress site-building a fun and simple experience. But I’ve been using Gutenberg more and more on blog posts and pages, and it’s rate of improvement is impressive. I find the editing content-editing experience in Gutenberg to be more fun that Divi’s “builder” experience, which is buggy and inconsistent when editing content. In fact, this site uses the Divi builder for the structure, but I am creating and editing this blog post in Gutenberg!
I wouldn’t use Gutenberg to build a website yet, but it sure would be nice if Divi offered us the option to use the superior Gutenberg editor for post and page content!
If Elegant Themes ever creates a Gutenberg module for Divi, I’ll let y’all know!

I was tracking down some strange inode action on a shared hosting provider today and discovered that Divi WordPress theme created 70,000+ unnecessary inodes. As you can see in the inode count in the above screengrab, Divi theme created over 70,000 inodes in a temp folder above the web root. For comparison, this WordPress install,…
