Hi. I am going to be rebuilding my site and moving from Headway to DIVI. Will my existing Views and Types work in DIVI without having to do much to modify it - I spent quit a lot of time getting it all right. You can see your plug in at work on the live site here: hidden link. And on an individual dog bio page here: hidden link

I hope I can just plug and play with DIVI, but I don't know how to do that yet. Any suggestions are welcome. thanks, Alan

Hi Alan,

Thank you for contacting us and I'd be happy to assist.

As updated in our documentation, it is no longer recommended to mix Divi and Toolset elements on the same page:
https://toolset.com/documentation/recommended-themes/toolset-divi-integration/

With the passage of time and especially with the introduction of WordPress's new editor "Gutenberg" ( https://wordpress.org/gutenberg/ ), Toolset and Divi both have grown a lot, but in separate directions.

The toolset has put its focus on the default "Gutenberg" blocks based editor, while Divi continues to expand its own front-end builder.

Unfortunately, they both can't be used together as closely as before, since eventually, it results in performance and compatibility issues.

If your existing website doesn't rely on Toolset templates then yes, you'll still be able to insert Toolset's data in Divi's templates through the shortcodes.

But if you're just looking for a theme in which you can place the already built Toolset content templates, views and custom fields data, etc, then it would be better to consider one of our recommended themes:

I hope this helps and please let me know if you need any further assistance around this.

regards,
Waqar
