The web is full of resources for Divi. However, many of them are paid resources... or you can find free layouts but plugins are rather rare. So I went online to get you some free plugins for Divi. This way, you can test them freely and see if they can be useful for your projects.

1 - Hamburger Style Menu
What is a "hamburger" in the world of web design?
This is the menu icon, often visible in a mobile version: these 3 small horizontal lines that extend the main menu of a site.
If you are already using Divi, you must have realized that there is no choice in the design of the hamburger. The Divi theme options only allow you to define its color. With this free plugin for Divi - "Hamburger Menu Style" - you will have the choice in 20 different styles! Its handling is very simple.
2 - WP and Divi Icons
In a previous article, we had already spoken manually to add icons in the footer of Divi.
Formerly known as the Divi Expansion Packthe WP and Divi Icons plugin will allow you to add many icons to your Divi theme. These icons will be directly available from the various modules of the Visual Builder. All you have to do is choose from hundreds of items.
This plugin offers a limited but already well "provided" free version as well as a more complete premium version.
3 - Divi Icons Pro
This free plugin for Divi looks very much like the previous one I just mentioned... Like its "cousin" the free version of Divi Icons will allow you to have a complete choice of icons directly from the modules of your Visual Builder.
4 - Divi Supreme Modules
This free plugin for Divi is really interesting because it adds about ten modules to the 46 modules already proposed by the Divi Builder. Among its various modules, you will find:
- Supreme Divi Typing: a typed and animated text effect... I love it!
- Supreme Divi Gradient: your title or paragraph will have a gradient color that you can customize. That's not bad.
- Supreme Divi Flipbox: you can animate some elements of your page when the mouse moves.
- and many others.
Note: during my tests some modules were not working (this is certainly due to the multiple updates of Divi recently).
5 - Simple Divi Shortcode
This free plugin allows you to easily insert a Divi module into another module. For example, you can add a rate module within a text module. This extension generates shortcodes based on the identifier of a module previously created and registered within your library.
6 - Divi Enhancer
Divi Enhancer adds additional modules that will be available directly from the Divi Builder. On the program:
- Team Member
- Image comparison
- Sticky module (sticky module)
- and many more!
7 - Divi Mega Menu
Divi Mega Menu allows you to transform your navigation (main menu) into a mega menu. This is done in the Appearance tab > Menu. A drag-and-drop builder will allow you to easily place items within your mega menu. Watch this video:
If you simply want to add images to the Divi main menu, you can also follow this tutorial.
8 - Divi Lightbox for Image
The Divi theme uses a lightbox effect only for its galleries. If you want to apply this kind of effect to your independent images, you can use this free plugin to avoid adding an independent plugin. This extension already uses the Divi code and does not add any additional code as a third-party extension would.
9 - Before + After Images for Divi
The "before and after" images allow the user to really see a difference between two photos. This free plugin for Divi offers this feature: you add two images, they overlap each other and the user only has to drag the cursor from left to right or vice versa. This feature is also found in the Divi Enhancer plugin.
10 - Image Size Selection for Divi
The image sizes for Divi are sometimes difficult to control... This plugin allows you to easily define the size of the image to display. This can be interesting to lighten the weight of the page.
11 - Divi Accessibility
Few WordPress themes take into account the accessibility of a site. However, this is essential for users with vision or hearing problems... Divi Accessibility allows you to correct some known errors within the Divi theme. Once installed, you will just have to tick the proposed patches.
12 - Layzy Load Divi Section Backgrounds
I haven't tested this extension but it offers an interesting feature: lazy-load loading of background images. If you use a cache extension like WP Rocket for example, Lazy Load Divi Section should not be useful to you. To find out how boost the performance of your Divi site, read this article.
13 - Monarch
Is Monarch really a free extension? Yes and no! Let's say it is included when you buy a Divi license. It is also one of the many advantages of this license. Monarch allows you to add sharing buttons on your pages and articles. The design and integration of this plugin is very much appreciated. In addition, you can use this plugin on any WordPress site, even if you are not using the Divi theme.
14 - Bloom
Same with Bloom. It is a opt-in plugin which allows you to retrieve subscriptions to your newsletter and store their email at your provider such as MailChimp, Aweber, Sendinblue and many others. Bloom is also included in your Divi license.
This list is not exhaustive. There are quite a few free plugins for Divi on the official WordPress directory. However, some of them do not seem to be compatible with the latest version of WordPress or Divi. Nothing prevents you from browse the proposed results and test them.
Note: it's always better to do your tests on a local site, you never know!
