About Divi & WordPress
Your site is built with WordPress.
It is created using the Divi Theme.
WordPress.org is free open source software. It is also the platform of choice for over 39% of all sites across the web. https://wordpress.org/about/
Do not confuse it with WordPress.COM which is a hosting platform for WordPress. If you’re interested, read more about that here: https://www.wpbeginner.com/beginners-guide/self-hosted-wordpress-org-vs-free-wordpress-com-infograph/
Divi is a WordPress page builder made by Elegant Themes and the (self proclaimed) most popular WordPress theme In the world. It is the “bones” that your website is built upon. KMDD has been using WordPress exclusively since 2008 and Divi exclusively since 2014.
In December 2018 WordPress launched a major update of its software and became a page builder with some similarities to Divi but not nearly the power or options. Because your site is built with Divi, and the classic WordPress editor is much easier to use, your site has the WordPress Gutenberg Builder disabled.
If you search WordPress.org documentation you may find differences in how your backend works since current documentation is geared towards the latest version of the Gutenberg builder. If you feel that you would like to use this new builder, please send a request to KMDD and we will enable the new builder.
