1 - Hamburger Menu Style
What is a "hamburger" in the world of web design?
This is the menu icon, often visible in the mobile version: these 3 small horizontal lines that allow you to extend the main menu of a site.
If you are already using Divi, you may have noticed that there is no choice regarding the design of the burger. The Divi theme options only allow you to define its colour.
With this free plugin for Divi - "Hamburger Menu Style" - you can choose from 20 different styles! It's very easy to use.
2 - WP and Divi Icons
In a previous article, we talked about a manual way of add icons in the footer of Divi.
Formerly called the Divi Expansion PackThe WP and Divi Icons plugin will allow you to add many icons to your Divi theme.
These icons will be available directly from the various Visual Builder modules. All you have to do is choose from hundreds of elements.
This plugin offers a limited but already well-furnished free version as well as a more complete premium version.
3 - Divi Icons Pro
This free plugin for Divi is very similar to the previous one I just told you about... Like its "cousin" the free version of Divi Icons will allow you to have a complete choice of icons directly from your Visual Builder modules.
4 - Divi Supreme Modules
This free plugin for Divi is really interesting because it adds about twenty modules to the 46 modules already offered 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 colour that you can customise. It's not bad.
- Supreme Divi Flipbox: you can animate certain elements of your page with the mouse.
- and many others.

5 - Simple Divi Shortcode
This free plugin allows you to easily insert a Divi module into another module. For example, you can add a pricing module within a text module.
This extension generates shortcodes based on the identifier of a module previously created and registered in your library.
6 - Divi Enhancer
Divi Enhancer adds additional modules that will be available directly from the Divi Builder. On the agenda:
- Team Member
- Image comparison
- Sticky module
- and many more!
7 - Divi Mega Menu
Divi Mega Menu allows you to turn your navigation (main menu) into a mega menu. This is done in the Appearance > Menu tab.
A drag-and-drop builder will allow you to easily place items within your mega menu. Watch this video:
If you just want to add images to the main Divi 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 standalone images, you can use this free plugin which will save you from adding a standalone 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 Internet user to really see a difference between two photos.
This free plugin for Divi offers this functionality: you add two images, they are superimposed and the user only has to drag the cursor from left to right or vice versa.
This functionality 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 be displayed. This can be interesting to reduce the weight of the page.
11 - Divi Accessibility
Few WordPress themes take into account the accessibility of a site. This is essential for users who have visual or hearing problems...
Divi Accessibility allows you to correct some known errors within the Divi theme. Once installed, all you have to do is check the proposed fixes.
12 - Layzy Load Divi Section Backgrounds
I have not tested this extension but it offers an interesting feature: lazy-loading of background images.
If you are using a caching extension like WP Rocket for example, Lazy Load Divi Section should not be useful for you. To find out how to boost the performance of your Divi site, read this article.
13 - Monarch
IsMonarch really a free extension? Yes and no! Let's say it's included when you buy a Divi license.
It is also one of the many advantages of this licence. Monarch allows you to add sharing buttons to your pages and posts. The design and integration of this plugin are very appreciated.
In addition, you can use this plugin on any WordPress site, even if you are not using the Divi theme.
14 - Bloom
The same goes for Bloom. He is a opt-in plugin which allows you to collect the subscriptions to your newsletter and store their email with your provider such as MailChimp, Aweber, Sendinblue and many others.
Bloom is also included in your Divi license.
15 - Divi Title Module
If you're tired of inserting a text module to simply enter a title, Divi Title Module is the extension for you!
Thanks to it, a new module will appear in the Visual Builder, the Title module. This does not exist natively. You can then insert this module and directly select the Hn level (H1, H2, H3, etc.). As for the other parameter options, they are all there: font, size, fat, etc.
This extension is very simple to use and was created by a French woman: Marie Comet !
16 - Author Box for Divi
With this extension, you can simply display an author box that shows the author's biography at the end of each article whether it is built with the Divi Builder or the classic editor (not Gutenberg).
Simply enter the author's bio, social network URLs and image in the Users > Your Profile tab.
Other features include adding a name prefix (e.g. "written by"), setting the text colour, background colour and border colour.
This is an alternative to the Simple Author Bio plugin presented in the article " how to add a bio at the end of articles" .
17 - Switcher Divi logo
Logo Switcher Divi adds a new option to the Appearance > Customize > Header & Navigation > Top Bar Settings tab that will allow you to upload your alternative logo.
So when the user is at the top of the page, they will see the classic logo and then when they scroll down the page, the alternative logo will be displayed.
18 - Extra Icons for Divi Builder
Extra Icons Plugin for Divi allows you to display more social network icons in your Divi header and footer.
This is a very simple alternative to this tutorial which explains how to add social network icons to the Divi footer using a Child Theme.
19 - Battle Suit for Divi
Battle Suit for Divi is a collection of modules for Divi. For example, you can :
- get a Masonry style image gallery,
- act on the appearance of the featured image,
- add 3D effects to the images,
- edit the metadata of your publications,
20 - Popups for Divi
This extension saves lives!
It is great because it allows you to turn any section of your layout into an interactive popup!

Have you found THE free Divi plugin(s) you were missing?
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. There is nothing to stop you from browse the proposed results and test them.
Note: it is always better to do your tests on a local site, you never know!
