Divi Tutorial: How to Use Rollover Actions - Part One

Divi: the easiest WordPress theme to use

Divi: The best WordPress theme of all time!

With over 600.000 downloads, Divi is the most popular WordPress theme in the world. It is complete, easy to use and comes with more than 62 free templates. [Recommended]

Each week, Elegant Theme offers new free Divi layout packs that you can use for your next project. For one of the presentation packs, they also share a use case that will help you get your website to the next level. This week, as part of the ongoing Divi design initiative, we'll show you how to creatively use Divi's flyover options to highlight CTAs in your pages. We use the Divi laundry service pack and we will cover three different examples of highlighting your call to action.


Before diving into the tutorial, let's quickly examine what we are going to create, to get an idea.

Add a new page using the Laundry or Laundry service layout

Start by adding a new page to your website and download the laundry homepage. The three examples we will create will be based on this provision. Once you have the approach, you can apply these examples to any layout you are working on.

Clone the text module

Let's start with the first example! We transform an existing text module into a hover incitation. This approach will only appear on the desktop. That's why we clone the initial module to allow it to appear on smaller screens without hovering effects.

Text module # 1

Continue by hiding the first module on tablet and phone.

Text module # 2

And hide the second module on the desktop.

Add a rollover effect to the desktop text module

Add a content title 3

We only edit the first text module, which will be the one that appears on the desktop. Open the module and add content from the 3 topic to the content area.

Finally, in this tutorial we were talking about creating an animation that highlights a section on our Divi page. The possibilities with Divi are almost limitless, using the different options (combinations of several different options), you will be able to create interfaces with a dynamic and attractive animation. Not being completed, we will cover the second part of this tutorial later. Until then, if you have any questions, feel free to ask them in the comments section.
