Announcement: Time to Recharge Our Batteries – Divi Chat Hiatus

We are taking our own advice! If you caught the previous episode, you know we all believe in the importance of taking a break.

The many panel members who have been a part of Divi Chat have been sharing advice, tips, and lessons learned for almost 7 years. (‼️) All of the panelists participate voluntarily and are all running their own business (or multiple businesses!) in addition to hanging out with you virtually for an hour or so each week.

The current panelists (Sarah, Tim, Steph, Mike, and Eric) have collectively agreed that we could benefit from a little break. We aren’t leaving for good, just taking a hiatus to recharge our batteries and re-energize ourselves to be able to best serve the WordPress community we all love so much.

In fact, we have some exciting things planned for our return, so stay tuned!

Ep 285 – Do These Things Before Taking On A Website You Didn’t Build

Taking on a website you didn’t build is like gazing at the beautiful tip of an iceberg above the surface. At first glance, it appears captivating and pristine, but beneath the waterline lies a complex web of hidden challenges and unexpected surprises.

Just like the tip of an iceberg, the visible aspects of a website may seem appealing and functional, but you never know what lies beneath. It could be a messy code structure, outdated plugins, or a tangled web of dependencies waiting to be unraveled.

Navigating the depths of someone else’s WordPress creation requires a blend of curiosity, expertise, and a touch of daring. You’ll need to dive deep, explore the unseen intricacies, and bring order to the chaos. It’s a journey that demands both technical prowess and a sprinkle of magic.

In this episode, the DC Panel shares their top tips for dealing with these potentially treacherous waters.

Our Story

Divi Chat?! What’s this, you ask. Well let us tell you!

We’re a gang of friends who met on various Divi Community Facebook groups and have basically grown into a little family. Some of us have worked together on projects, some of us have even started full-fledged companies together, and all of us simply enjoy each other’s online company and respect each other’s work. Oh, did we mention we’re kinda fond of Divi by Elegant Themes? So much so that one day one of us had the grand thought — “hey, why don’t we do a Divi podcast?” — and the rest, as they say, is <becoming> history.
