00:28 David Blackmon: Hey everybody. Welcome to another episode of wp the podcast i’m David Blackmon
00:29 Tim Strifler: And I’m Tim Strifler.
00:32 David Blackmon: Today we’re going to talk about one of our favorite themes that Tim and i absolutely love. We’ve built businesses around it, and it eventually when we started using this thing we had no idea how super awesome and powerful it was going to be, nor did we know that it was going to become the number one WordPress theme in the world, for quite a long time. And that is the Divi theme. And you hear a lot of things about page builders in general, and Divi is a page builder, and one of them is oh don’t use a page builder they’re bloated, they’re slow, they’re you know, they they load super slow. And that’s gonna kill your retention and your customer and your bounce rate and all this stuff… And uh so Tim is Divi a bloated WordPress theme in 2022?
05:28 David Blackmon: Awesome well that’s great news. Yeah because you hear that all the time, oh it’s slow and this and that, and people just fear mongering. And you know they’re just they’re not understanding you know how things are these days and stuff. So um yeah it’s pretty powerful and it just keeps getting better and better. I don’t think we’re going back to any of the old way of doing WordPress back in the day i think page builders are here to stay. They’re going to be, you know, because they’re so easy to use for non-developers. They’re just intuitive drag and drop easy peasy and that’s the way the world is going. So uh everybody’s gonna be on the web if you’re not hopefully you’re getting on there soon um so yeah you know it’s not going anywhere anytime soon so them improving that feature was huge. Yeah all right tomorrow we’ve got another great topic. Tim, until tomorrow we’ll see you then.
06:20 Tim Strifler: Take care bye-bye
