Divi allows you to place sliders in full width sections, so your cursors extend across the width of the browser. Sliders (Slides) Divi support parallax backgrounds as well as video backgrounds!

How to add a full-width Diapo module from Divi

Before you can add a full-width slider 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 Builderabove 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 Use Visual Builder when you browse your website in the foreground if you are connected to your WordPress dashboard.

Once you are in the Visual Builder, you can click the gray plus button to add a new module to your page. New modules can only be added inside the lines. If you start a new page, do not forget to add a line to your page first.

Locate the fullwidth cursor 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 "Slide", and then click Enter to automatically find and add the full-width slider 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: Add a Slider Fullwidth Hero Section to your Home Page

A full width slider is a great way to present multiple CTAs above the threshold of your homepage. The combination of images and content can really give your section a professional feel that stands out.

For this example, I will add a full-width slide to serve as the main section on a home page.

create a full-width slide example.jpg

Using Visual Builder, add a Fullwidth section at the top of your web page. Then insert the Fullwidth Slider module into your new section. In the Content Contents tab of the full-width slide, click + Add a new item to create your first slide.

In the slide settings of your first slide, update the following options:

Content options

Enhead : [enter the title of the slide] Button text : [enter the button text] Contents : [enter the text content of the slide] Button URL : [enter the destination URL of the Slide button] Background image : [enter the image that will serve as a backdrop for the slide]

Design options

Use background overlay : YES
Background overlay color : rgba (0,0,0,0.2) This overlay slightly darkens the background image to make the text more readable.

Save slide settings

Now duplicate the slide you just created and update the new slide with new content if needed. Repeat this for all the slides you want to add.

That's all. For this example, I only include two slides, but the result is an effective fullwidth hero cursor with multiple calls to action that engages the user to click the button for more information. Since this is your main call to action for your website, I suggest doing split tests on your full-width slide using Divi Leads and seeing which one converts best.

You can reduce this value to 0 to create a square button or increase it significantly to create buttons with circular edges.

You can also apply custom classes and CSS IDs to the module, which can be used to customize the module in the style.css file of your child theme.

advance section slide module divi.png

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.

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.

Automatic animation

If you want the cursor to slide automatically, without the visitor having to click the next button, enable this option, then adjust the rotation speed below if you wish.

Automatic animation speed (in ms)

Here you can specify how fast the cursor fades between each slide, if the 'Auto Animation' option is enabled above. The higher the number, the longer the pause between each rotation.

Continue Auto slide on Hover

Turning on this will allow auto-slide to continue on the hover of the mouse.

Hide content on mobile

Sometimes it's a good idea to disable some less important cursor elements to reduce the size of the cursor and make it more readable. Enabling this setting hides the contents of the cursor text on the mobile.

Enabling this setting displays slide images and videos on mobile (they are disabled by default).

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.

Contents options of the full-width slide module elements

individual element module divi diapo.png

title

Set the text of your cursor title here.

Button text

If you want to display a button below the contents of your slide, enter the button text here. Leave this field blank if you do not want to display a button.

Contents

Enter the body content of your cursor here. Note that the amount of text you enter here will determine the height of your slides.

Button URL

If you display a button, insert a valid web URL into this field to set the destination link.

Drag the image

If you add a slide image, it will appear to the left of the text of your slide above your slide background. If you do not specify a slide image, you will be left with a centered slide, text only. Because the height of each slide is determined by the text, if the image on your slide is high enough, it will fall below the bottom of the slide, creating an image aligned at the bottom.

drag an image divi.png

Note that the height of a slide with a slide image can be determined by a larger slide in the slider. Make sure the image on your slide is large enough to fit if you want to have an image aligned at the bottom. For readability, slide images appear only in the column, column, or column sliders of 1 column. Similarly, slide images will not display on browser widths smaller than 768 pixels. The slide image widths are defined below. We recommend that your slide images be at least as wide.

Video slide

If you add a slide video, it will appear to the left of the text of your slide above the background of your slide. If you do not specify a slide video, you will be left with a centered slide, text only. Because the height of each slide is determined by the text, if the image on your slide is high enough, it will fall below the bottom of the slide, creating an image aligned at the bottom.

Background picture

If set, this image will be used as the background for this module. To delete a background image, simply delete the URL from the settings field.

The height of a slide is determined by the amount of text you add. If you have multiple slides, the cursor will take the height of the highest slide.

The width of your cursor is determined by the width of the browser. Based on standard screen sizes, we recommend that your images be at least 1280px by 768px.

Position of the background image

By default, background images are displayed in the center of the slide. You can use this setting to change the position at the top, bottom, left, right, or in one of the four corners of the slide.

Size of the background image

By default, background images will be enlarged proportionally to ensure they fill the entire slide. However, you can use this option to change the default behavior. "Cover" is the default behavior, which scales the image to cover the entire slide area. "Fit" will also force the image to cover the entire area, however, it will force the height and width of the image to match the height and width of the slider. This may result in a distorted image, but this will prevent cropping of the image. "Actual size" does not scale the image and displays it at its native size.

Background color

If you just want to use a solid color background for your slide, use the color picker to set a background color.

MP4 background video

All videos must be downloaded in both .MP4 .WEBM formats to ensure maximum compatibility in all browsers. Download the .MP4 version here. Important note: Video backgrounds are disabled from mobile devices. Instead, your bkacground image will be used. For this reason, you need to set both a background image and a background video to ensure better results.

WEBM background video

All videos must be downloaded in both .MP4 .WEBM formats to ensure maximum compatibility in all browsers. Download the .WEBM versions here. Important note: Video backgrounds are disabled from mobile devices. Instead, your bkacground image will be used.
