A warm welcome to SO MANY new Divi Cloud users. We are delighted to have you in the Cloud community.
Let me begin by answering a question I have seen a few times on Facebook and in the support tickets:
Q. Are the layouts from Elegant Themes loaded into the Cloud?
A. Yes. I have confessed before, I am a digital hoarder, and maybe you are also. I download things from all over the web that either catch my attention because they are free, or because I think, oh, this is great, it would be perfect if I ever do a site for X (name it: bakery, pet parlor, lawyer, fidget spinner creator), then when that design opportunity presents itself I have not one clue which layout it was, or if I even remember saving the perfect pet parlor layout. So when I saw other people asking if the ET layouts could be loaded into the Cloud, I pushed for it with the team. Once you begin using the Cloud you will understand how amazing it is to have everything right in one easy to find / sort place.
Q. Do those layouts count in your “Available Creatives” totals?
A. No. When we say we have X number of design elements for you, those are the numbers of items that our team has built.
We are transparent and available. We encourage your feedback, as we are a community, and can improve more effectively through collaboration. If you feel like something is amiss, or see an opportunity to make us all better, by all means, share, either in the comments or directly.
Now! What we have for you!
As always, the first of the month is “drop day” for new layouts, so tomorrow, December 1st, there will be a total of 20 new layouts available. There is one layout that is available with the plugin, and this month it is called, Fight Club, it’s pretty long, so I will add it to the bottom of this post. This is when y’all are happy that you have two people on the design team, as I would never come up with Fight Club, and look how cool it is. I love the calls to action (get a free lesson, learn more, sign up). The map is great for brick and mortar businesses – people need to find you. My inner Texas girl loves this orange semi-transparent overlay.
Credit here goes to Rico, the set is for a Farmers Market, which of course can be customized for other things, but the pages include; Home, Donate (!), Contact, Events, Blog, Landing page, and Find Us (general overview). The layouts are clean and showcase the products,
We have themes that include: Music, Construction, Blog, Woo, Portfolio, a Church, Corporate, Beauty Salon (which has a cool grid for images that you may just want to use that section), an About page, Timeline, Design Company Landing page, Agency and a product page with a lovely header and gallery (Tea’s the Season, heheheh I thought that would be a little holiday humor).
For the next while we are keeping the #000 Friday pricing of $15 for the plugin. A very low cost to test the waters. See more about the pricing and options here: https://layoutscloud.com/plans/.
Everything will be available to you tomorrow, December 1st. We also want to invite you to a LIVE Zoom Q & A, Friday, December 1st at 9am, EST. Use this link: https://zoom.us/j/7914865368 (if you don’t have Zoom, it just takes a moment to download to your computer). I will record the call and make it available, I understand 9am in Boston may be inconvenient o’clock in your zone.
Thanks to so many of you who reach out personally. I appreciate hearing how you are using the plugin and seeing the designs you are creating. I also love learning about your business, please continue to connect. Happy designing and Andrew, Sean, Rico and I hope to see you live tomorrow morning.
