How to build advanced sites with Toolset and Divi


This tutorial teaches how to combine Divi and Toolset on the same website. We show how to choose the builder to use for different parts of the site.

When you’re using the Divi theme, we recommend using the Divi builder only for static pages and Toolset to build the dynamic elements of the site.

You should not mix Divi and Toolset elements on the same page, to avoid compatibility issues and make sure that what you build now will keep working in the future.

Legacy integration with Divi 3

The Toolset Views plugin features a “legacy” integration with the Divi 3 version that allowed you to design Toolset elements like Views, templates, and archives using the Divi Builder.

For existing sites based on Divi 3, this integration should keep working and we will do everything we can to maintain it in the future. However, don’t update these sites to Divi 4 version because that would likely break your designs.

Please note that this kind of integration is not possible and will not be implemented for Divi 4 version and newer.

How to switch to the Block Editor when using other page builders

If you’re using other page builders like WPBakery, Elementor or Beaver Builder, we recommend the same. Use the page builder for static pages and Toolset for the dynamic content.

When creating a new page, click Use Standard Editor.
