How to add the Divi Full Screen Menu module

Before you can add a full-screen menu module to your page, you must first jump into Divi Builder. Once the Divi theme is installed on your website, you will notice a button Use Divi Builder above the publisher each time you create a new page. Click this button to activate Divi Builder and access all Divi Builder modules. Then click on the button Use Visual Builder to start the generator in visual mode. You can also click on the button Enable Visual Builder when you browse your website in the foreground if you are connected to your WordPress dashboard.

Once you have entered Visual Builder, you can click the gray plus button to add a new module to your page. The new full screen menu modules can only be added inside the fullwidth sections. If you start a new page, do not forget to add a fullwidth section to your page first.

Locate the full screen header module in the list of modules and click on it to add it to your page. The list of modules is searchable, which means that you can also type the word "full-screen header" and then click "Enter" to automatically find and add the full-screen header module! Once the module is added, you will be greeted by the list of options of the module. These options are separated into three main groups: Contents , Design et Advanced .

Use Case Example: Adding a full-screen header to an About page

For this example, I'll show you how to use the Fullwidth header module to add a header with custom text and a background image.

All full screen modules are only available when using full screen sections. Using Visual Builder, insert a new full screen section. Then add a Person module to the section.

Update the full-screen header settings as follows:

CSS ID

Enter an optional CSS identifier to use for this module. An ID can be used to create a custom CSS style or to create links to particular sections of your page.

CSS class

Enter the optional CSS classes to use for this module. A CSS class can be used to create a custom CSS style. You can add multiple classes, separated by a space. These classes can be used in your Divi child theme or in the custom CSS style sheet that you add to your page or website by using Divi theme options or Divi Builder page settings.

Custom CSS

Custom CSS can also be applied to the module and to one of the internal elements of the module. In the Custom CSS section, you will find a text field in which you can add custom CSS style sheets directly to each element. The CSS entries in these parameters are already wrapped in the style tags. So just enter the CSS rules separated by semicolons.

Visibility

This option allows you to control the devices on which your module appears. You can choose to disable your module on tablets, smart phones or desktops individually. This is useful if you want to use different modules on different devices, or if you want to simplify mobile design by eliminating certain elements of the page.
