WordPress has a default feature to allow your website visitors to leave a comment. Other visitors can reply to an existing comment. However, WordPress has no default option to automatically notify visitors when their comment is replied. If you want to allow your visitors to get notifications over a reply to their comment, you can use a plugin called Comment Reply Email Notification. The plugin will automatically send an email to visitors — who have left a comment on a certain post — when their comment is replied by another visitor. You can get the plugin on the official plugin directory of WordPress.
Installing and Using the Comment Reply Email Notification Plugin
As said above, the Comment Reply Email Notification plugin is available on the official plugin directory of WordPress. It means that you can install it directly from the WordPress plugin manager. Go to Plugins -> Installed Plugins to access the WordPress plugin manager. Click the Add New button to install a new plugin.
Type “Comment Reply Email Notification” on the search box. Once you found the plugin, click the Install Now button to install it. Activate the plugin right away once installed.
The Comment Reply Email Notification plugin requires no additional settings to work. It will automatically work once installed. You will see a new option labeled “Notify me via e-mail if anyone answers my comment.” beneath the comment box on each blog post of your website.
Editing the Email Template
By default, the email sent to your visitors has the body with the following content:
If you want to add a new text to the body or remove the existing one, you can simply edit the template. To do so, you can go to Plugins -> Plugin Editor on your WordPress dashboard. Select Comment Reply Email Notification on the dropdown menu on right side and click the Select button.
Select the notification.php file under the templates/cren folder to edit it.
If the plugin editor is disabled on your WordPress site, you can access the notification.php file of Comment Reply Email Notification from the file manager of your hosting. You can go to the following path: wp-content/plugins/comment-reply-email-notification/templates/cren.
The Bottom Line
When maximized, the default commenting feature of WordPress can help increase visitors to your website. One of ways to maximize the WordPress commenting feature is by automatically sending a notification to visitors when their comment is replied. On top of that, applying the tip can help to increase user engagement on your website. Another tip to increase user engagement via comment box is by displaying a social media sharing buttons right after the comment is posted. You can achieve it using the Monarch plugin.
Divi is one of WordPress themes that comes with a built-in back to top button. So, if this button matters to you, you don’t need to install an additional plugin. By default, the back to top button of Divi comes in a grey and is located on the lower-bottom right side of your website. If you don’t like the default look and location, you can customize it. This article will show you how.
The back to top button itself can be enabled from Theme Options page. You can access the page by going to Divi -> Theme Options on your WordPress dashboard. On the General tab, scroll down to the Back To Top Button option and toggle the switch.
Customizing Back to Top Button via Custom CSS
This method is a bit tricky as you need to have CSS knowledge. But no worries, we will provide the necessary CSS codes. Here are three examples of the back to top button, along with the CSS codes. You can place one of the codes below to the Custom CSS field on the General tab of the Theme Options page of Divi.

If you have no CSS knowledge and seek for an easier way to customize the back to top button of Divi, you can use a plugin. One of the Divi plugins that you can use is Divi Switch. You can get it on Divi Marketplace. The plugin comes with some extra customization options. One of which is the ability to customize the back to top button.
After installing and activating the Divi Switch plugin, you will see a new block called Divi Switch on theme customizer (Appearance -> Customize). Simply scroll down to the back to top section to customize the back to button. You can set things like the button color, position, border radius, and so on.
The Bottom Line
Back to top button is a simple yet useful feature of Divi. It allows your website visitors to effortlessly back to the top section of the page they are visiting. If you have a one-page website (which usually has a long homepage), you can combine this feature with a one-page navigation. Divi offers no option to customize the back to top button. To customize it, you can use one of the methods we covered above.
Some websites consist only of one page, the homepage. Usually, this type of website has a long homepage. To make it easier for your visitors to jump between sections on the homepage, you can create a navigation menu just like regular websites (websites that consist of several pages). How to create a navigation menu when your website consists of only one page? This article will show you how. Specifically, we will show you how to create a one-page navigation menu in Divi.
Divi, as you have known, comes with a built-in page builder that you can use to create the homepage of your website. When creating the homepage using Divi Builder, you can add sections to place the modules. Regarding one-page navigation menu, you can point each menu item to the sections of your homepage. For instance, say your homepage consists of the following sections:
When you click the Home menu item, you will be taken to the hero section, when you click the Services menu item, you will be taken to the services section, and so on. Take a look at the following screencast.
How to Create One-Page Navigation Menu in Divi
First, edit the page you want to apply the one-page navigation to using Divi Builder. Select a section (e.g., the hero section) and click the blue gear icon to open the section settings panel. You can also use Layers View to ease your job.
Once the section settings panel opens, go to the Advanced tab and open the CSS ID & Classes block. Add CSS id on the CSS ID field.
Move to other sections and repeat the steps above to add the CSS id to each section.
Once done adding the CSS id on each section, update your page to save the changes. Next, go to the menu manager (Appearance -> Menus). Select a menu you want to use for the navigation menu (or create a new one). Add a custom link to each menu item. Instead of adding a link, you can add a CSS id on the URL field of the menu item.
Make sure to click the Save Menu button on the bottom-right corner to save the changes.
Using the Menu
Once done with all steps above, the last step is to use the menu. If you want to use the menu on the default header of Divi, you can go to the theme customizer (Appearance -> Customize). Open the Menus block and select the menu you have edited above and tick the PRIMARY MENU option.
Navigation menu is a crucial feature of a website. Even if your website consists of only one page, you still need it. Divi is a feature-rich theme. Creating a navigation menu for your one-page website is not a problem in Divi. Some Divi child themes, such as Portfolio Divi Child Theme, are also designed with a one-page website concept.
Elementor is a multipurpose page builder plugin. Meaning that you can use it to create any type of website, including an online magazine. However, since Elementor is not designed specifically to create online magazines like tagDiv Composer, it takes extra effort to design the layout if you want to create an online magazine with it. If you don’t want to be bother, you can use a template kit for your online magazine. We have curated the Elementor template kits to create an online magazine.
Typically, an online magazine has a grid section on its homepage to display articles based on certain criteria. Elementor has no default widget to create this sort of section. If you need one, you can use JetBlog — an Elementor add-on designed specifically for online magazines. We have a separate article that covers how to create an online magazine homepage in case you are interested.
As we said above, most online magazines have a grid section on their homepage to display articles. If you want the homepage of your online magazine has this sort of section, Sportans is one of the template kits you can consider.

You need to have the Templately installed on your website to be able to use the template kit.

The EleMega template kit has clean, simple design which is great if you want to have an online magazine with a minimalist nuance. EleMag offers a homepage template, a header template, a footer template, and a single post template.

Santoni itself offers 15 templates in total, including three homepage templates and two single post templates.

The Bottom Line
Although not designed specifically to create online magazines, Elementor can also be used to create an online magazine. It has two default widgets that you can use to display articles on your website: the Posts widget and the Archive Posts widget. To achieve certain layouts, post grid layout for instance, you can use add-ons like JetBlog. In addition to displaying articles in grid layout, the add-on also allows you to create and embed a YouTube playlist. If you want to create your online magazine from a template kit, you can use one of the items we have covered above.
Since its initial release in 2016, Elementor has undergone massive development. It has gone from a mere page builder plugin to a comprehensive website builder. Elementor is now capable of handling tasks that previously could only be done by a theme. Such as customizing site parts (header, footer, single post layout, and so on), setting the site logo, and so on. Recently, Elementor has just released a new feature called Kit Library. The feature aimed at nothing but to streamline your workflow. Isn’t template kit already there? You are right but read on first.
The first edition of template kit was released by Elementor back in 2019. Since then, Elementor keeps releasing new template kits on a regular basis. Before Kit Library was released, you could only install a new template kit by manually importing each template (offered by the template kit) on the pages associated with each template. For instance, if the template kit you want to install consists of 10 templates, you need to import the templates 10 times. We haven’t mentioned the page creation, which also required.
With Kit Library, you can install a template kit — as well as other components — in fewer clicks. Less than 5 clicks!
Is Kit Library Different to Template Library?
Template Library has been around since the initial version of Elementor. It contained ready-made templates. From section templates to page templates. In Template Library, you can only import one template per import. Kit Library also consists of templates, but only for template kits. You can install a template kit in three clicks. On the installation process, Elementor will also import the demo content, global setting, and site settings. That is why Elementor calls the items on Kit Library a site kit instead of template kit.
A site kit consists of the following components:
Global settings for Elementor
Site part templates (header, footer, single post, 404 page, and so on)
Popup templates (depending on kit site concept)
Installing a Site Kit
Kit Library is available on Elementor 3.3 and the higher versions. You can access the feature by going to Templates -> Kit Library on your WordPress dashboard. The collections of the site kits will show up as you go to Kit Library. You can filter them by clicking the categories on left panel. You can also search for a particular site kit from the available search box. Once you find the site you like, simply click it and you will be presented the preview of site kit. You can click the Apply Kit button on the top-right corner to install it. You can click the device icons to switch between preview modes. You can also click the Overview button to see what templates offered by the site kit.
On the next step, you can select which components you want to include on the importing process. Once done selecting the components, you can click the Next button on the bottom-right corner.
Wait a moment until Elementor is done importing the templates and applying the settings. Once the process is done, you can edit the templates to tailor the content and your site is ready.
Did you count the number of clicks to import the templates? Only three!
How an Elementor Website Kit Helps Streamlining Your Workflow
Elementor has significantly transformed the way WordPress users create a website. You no longer depend on what’s your theme offer to customize your website. You can customize every part of your website in a visual way thanks to Elementor theme builder feature. With Elementor, you can create a website with your own design concept.
Design. Yes, right.
When you create a website using Elementor, you put design on the emphasize. In order to make every element of your website has a consistent design, you need to create a style guide. Once the style guide is created, you can execute it with Elementor. Before creating the style guide, you also need to create the design of your website itself.
In general, it takes the following steps to create a professional website with Elementor:
Creating the design itself. You can use tools like Figma, Adobe XD, and Sketch
Creating the style guide
Execute the design in Elementor based on the style guide
From the processes above, creating the design is the most time consuming one as you need to conduct some research to make your design relevant with the website type you want to create. It can take days or even weeks. With an Elementor Site Kit, you can eliminate all processes above. As we have demonstrated above, you can create a website in only three clicks.
While a Site Kit can help save you time in creating a new website, it also great to redesign your existing website to give it a fresh look.
The Bottom Line
Since its initial release in 2016, Elementor has transformed how WordPress users create a website. Its intuitive editor interface allows anyone to create a beautiful website regardless of the design background. You have a lot of elements to be added. Its theme builder, which was released in 2018, allowed users to step further. Now with the release of Kit Library, Elementor users are getting pampered more and more. The feature allows you to create a website in a quickest way possible. No need to create the design or style guide. You just need to select a site kit you like and install it in a few clicks.
Elementor comes with an Accordion widget. Along with the Toggle widget, the Accordion widget is great to create sections like FAQ or the similar ones. When working with the Accordion widget, you can add as many items as you want. By default, the first item of the accordion is set to open and Elementor offers no default setting to make it closed. For some users, it is a bit annoying as the main purpose of adding accordion is to hide information and requires user interaction (clicking an accordion item) to display the information.
You can use HTML widget to use the code above. Simply drag the HTML widget and place it right above the Accordion widget. Paste the code to the HTML Code field on the settings panel once the HTML widget is added
That’s it. You can update your page once you are done editing other elements.
If you have multiple accordions on your website and want to make them all closed by default, you can use a custom code instead. To do so, go to Elementor -> Custom Code on your WordPress dashboard. Click the Add new button to add a new custom code.
Give your custom code a name and paste the code. On the Location section, you can choose whether header, footer, or body. Your code will work at any location. Click the Publish button to apply the code.
Try to reload one of the pages on your website that contains an accordion to check the result.
While the Accordion is useful to create an FAQ section, you can only add the text content. Plus, there is no option to add the content from a template. You can only add the content manually using the offered classic editor. If you need to add an image accordion section to your page, you can use Elementor add-ons like JetElements and JetTabs.
Trust is a crucial thing for a business. You can’t compromise about it. One of ways to build trust for your business is by having a website. Today, most people will look for the website of a service before they use it (the service). That being said, if you are a lawyer or have law firm, you can create a website if you haven’t done so. Divi is a great theme to create a lawyer website with WordPress. It is a feature-rich theme, comes with a built-in page builder. You don’t need to always start from scratch when creating a website with Divi. Instead, you can use a child theme. We have curated the best Divi child themes that are great to create a lawyer website.
By the way, what is a Divi child theme?
A Divi child theme is a sub-theme of the Divi theme. It inherits all features of Divi as the parent theme. When you use a Divi child theme, you can’t delete the Divi theme as a child theme requires a parent theme to work. In the context of Divi, there are two main benefits of using a child theme:
You can update your Divi theme without any risk
You can get your website done more quickly
If you follow the right step to update a WordPress theme, the first step you need to do before starting the update is to back up your website. The reason is to avoid unexpected things might be happen to your website after the update. Using a child theme can prevent your website from being messed up after the theme update as the changes (of the update) are applied to parent theme. Divi in this case.
For the second reason, you can get your website done more quickly as a Divi child theme commonly comes with page layouts and theme settings you can import. The page layouts, as well as the theme settings, are designed specifically for specific website type. You can get a Divi child theme that is designed specifically for a lawyer website.

The Bottom Line
If you want to create a WordPress-based with Divi, it would be much easier and time saving with a child theme. There are at least two main benefits you will get. First, you don’t need to backup your website every time you want to update your Divi theme as the changes of the update will not be applied to your child theme.

WordPress is the best CMS to create a website for affiliate marketing as it is fully customizable. The very first thing you need to do before start creating a website for your affiliate marketing business is to pick the best theme. You can go to the WordPress theme directory for a free theme. If you prefer a paid theme, one of our recommendations is Divi. You will learn shortly why Divi is one of the best themes to run your affiliate marketing business.
Affiliate marketing means you sell third-party’s products in which you will earn a commission for every product you sell via your affiliate link. Most affiliate marketers promote the affiliate product they sell via articles, be it in the form of review or listicle. There is also a practice whereby an affiliate marketer creates something like an online shop, but for affiliate products only. In WordPress, you can use WooCommerce if you want to adopt this practice. WooCommerce allows you to sell affiliate products other than your own products. Whichever the practice you want to adopt, Divi can provide the solution. You can use it to create a customized WooCommerce-based online shop. You can also use it to create a regular website (e.g., blog) that consists of several content types.
Also, Divi comes with tons of features you can make use of to create campaign materials.
Top Reasons Divi is the Best WordPress Theme for Affiliate Marketing.
1. It Comes with a Visual Editor
While articles are great to promote your affiliate products, as well as to generate traffic to your website from search engines, you might want to try running a campaign on platforms like Facebook Ads or Google Ads. Before running a campaign, you definitely need to create a decent landing page first. To do so, you can use a page builder that offers a visual editor like Elementor, Zion Builder, and Brizy. With Divi theme, you don’t need to install a page builder plugin anymore as it already has one called Divi Builder.
Divi Builder is an integral part of the Divi theme. It is not a separate plugin although a standalone plugin of Divi Builder is also available if you want to use it on a WordPress theme other than Divi theme.
You can use Divi Builder to create a landing page before you run a campaign on any advertising platform. You can create a more appealing page by adding some visual elements in order to make your landing page can convert into sales or leads according to your purpose. Divi Builder itself offers 30+ elements (called modules). Some key modules are:
If you need more modules, you can install a Divi plugin. Elegant Themes — the developer of Divi — offers a marketplace whereby you can download Divi plugins, Divi child themes, and Divi layouts. To give you an overview about Divi Builder, you can watch the following video.
Regarding campaign materials, Divi offers 200+ ready-made landing page layouts to streamline your workflow. Divi Builder itself can be used on posts on pages.
2. Native Integration with Gutenberg
WordPress has a default editor called Gutenberg which you can use to create content on your website. Be it blog posts or pages. Although it has evolved in the recent years by allowing users to add more visual elements, the emphasis is text, still. In Divi, you can add more visual elements to your Gutenberg-powered content thanks to the native integration between Gutenberg and Divi Builder.
In what form is the integration between Divi Builder and Gutenberg?
You can add a Divi module (which you have customized before) to Gutenberg. This is great if you often create blog posts to promote your affiliate products as you can add elements like call to action, email opt-in form, stylized button, and so on. Blog posts, in any case, are the best material to generate organic traffic from search engines. The concept of this sort of integration itself is also available on other page builders like Elementor. But unlike Elementor, you don’t need to install an additional plugin to integrate Gutenberg and Divi Builder (read: Elementor vs Divi). You can read our previous article to learn how to use a Divi module in Gutenberg.
3. Ability to Create Custom Templates for Site Parts
Your WordPress-based website consists of the following main parts:
Search results page
The layouts of those parts are controlled by template files of the theme you use. For instance, the layout of the header is controlled by the header.php file, while the layout of the footer is controlled by the footer.php file. You can go to Appearance -> Theme Editor on your WordPress dashboard to find the template files of your theme.
WordPress itself is written in PHP. In other words, you need to understand PHP to edit the template files with the aim to edit the layouts. Divi comes with a theme builder feature to eliminate the PHP knowledge requirement to edit the templates. The theme builder feature of Divi allows you to create custom templates — using Divi Builder — to replace the default templates of your theme.
When it comes to affiliate marketing, theme builder is useful for the following case.
To create custom templates for custom post types
What is a custom post type?
Simply put, it is a type of content that is different from default content of WordPress such as blog posts and pages. When it comes to affiliate marketing, a great example of the implementation of a custom post type is for review articles whereby you can create a custom post type dedicated to review articles. You can then use Divi theme builder to create a custom template for the custom port type. You can read our previous article to learn more about WordPress custom post type.
4. The Supporting Marketing Plugins on the Package
Divi is developed by Elegant Themes, which adopts membership-based business model. There are two membership types offered by Elegant Themes: yearly membership and lifetime membership. Whichever the membership type you choose; you will have access to all WordPress products developed by Elegant Themes:
Monarch and Bloom are two of the supporting plugins you can make use of to run your affiliate marketing business. Monarch is a social media sharing plugin, while Bloom is an email marketing plugin. The two comes with analytics feature to allow you to monitor the stats like the number of shares and subscribers.
5. Built-in SEO Feature
Most affiliate marketers rely on search engines to generate traffic (organic traffic more specifically) to their affiliate websites. To get traffic from search engines, you need to have your sites on the front page (page one) of the search results page of search engines. To achieve this, you need to optimize your website as well as its content. The process itself is called Search Engine Optimization or often shortened SEO.
Divi comes with a built-in SEO feature you can make use of. You can go to Divi -> Theme Options and click the SEO tab to access the feature.
The built-in SEO feature of Divi allows you to:
Add custom title for homepage and single post
Add meta description for homepage and single post
Add meta keyword for homepage and single post
Add canonical URLs
While the feature is useful enough, we keep recommending a dedicated SEO plugin like Yoast and Rank Math for a better result.
6. WooCommerce Builder Feature
On the opening section, we said that you can create an online shop using WooCommerce to sell your affiliate products. Related to this, you can make use of the WooCommerce builder of Divi to create a fully customized online shop.
How the WooCommerce builder feature works?
WooCommerce consists of the following main pages:
Single product page
Product archive pages
Customer’s account page
The layouts of the pages above are controlled by template files which you can find on the folder “wp-content/plugins/woocommerce/templates“.
The ability to create custom templates for WooCommerce gives you freedom to add the elements you need or like on every WooCommerce page such as single product page. You can also remove the unnecessary ones.

Divi is a multipurpose WordPress theme in which you can use it to create any type of website, including a coffee shop website. Be it with an e-commerce functionality or not. In Divi, you have three options to start creating your website: from scratch, from a layout pack, and from a child theme. If you plan to create your coffee shop website from a child theme, we have curated the best Divi child themes to get your website done. Read on to learn more.
There are at least two reasons why using a Divi child theme is a smarter choice. First, you can keep your Divi theme updated without worrying about your site. In some cases, when you update your theme to the newest version, it will ruin your site as updating process might overrides the settings you have made to your theme. That’s why most theme developers recommend you back up your website first before making an update. When you use a child theme on your WordPress site, you can update your parent theme any time once the newer version is available. You can update the parent theme comfortably and confidently as the changes will not be applied to your child theme. In other words, if there is something wrong about the update, it won’t affect your site as you use a child theme.
Second, using a Divi child theme can save you time in getting your website done. A Divi child theme is commonly packaged for a certain website type. It usually consists of theme customizer settings, theme builder settings, page layouts, and so on. The settings and layouts are stored in JSON files, which are available in the ZIP file of the associated child theme. You can simply import the JSON files according to their respective context. Some Divi child themes even come with importer to streamline your workflow.
