I woke up far too early this morning as I was so excited about taking the new Divi 3.18 backend editing experience for a test drive.

I have to say, I am really impressed! I use the backend builder the majority of the time, but I also use the Visual Builder and Wireframe Mode on a daily basis, so I am very familiar with the layout and functionality of all three options.

What ET have done with this update, is to create a user experience that pulls all three of those options into a single, slick and elegant interface, containing all the added features of recent months, with the comfort and familiarity of the classic backend builder. Well done Team ET 😍

I checked Facebook before I updated Divi to see what everyone was saying and as expected, there was a plethora of posts about sites breaking and people not being able to access the backend builder at all anymore.

After playing with Divi 3.18 on both WordPress 4.9.8 and 5.0 for a few hours, I could understand the confusion and reason for a lot of those Facebook posts.

So I decided to create this overview video which shows you the new builder experience, and how to enable it whether you are using WordPress 4.9.8 or 5.0+

And that’s it!
