  1. Great examples. Sorry to “shift” topic here, but I’m noticing some similar issues on these sites as on my own Divi site builds for clients.

    Specifically, I’m wondering if anyone else is experiencing the shifting of the header downwards as it loads the page content, and then shifts the header back up. It’s on every page load and I can’t stand it. And as I redo my own business site, I’m seeing it there, too.

    You can see the issue in action on David Welch’s site:

    http://davidwelchart.com/

    Just keep refreshing and watch the header shift down and back up. Happens on all my builds. Anyone know of a way to get around this? Is this the parent Divi CSS styling it one way, and then the browser loads the custom CSS and repositions it by whatever the Customizer settings are set to? Is that what I’m seeing?

    I can deal with a little loading time, but the shifting of content is frustrating. Anyone else?

    • Randy A. Brown

      Hmm. I just checked all of mine and it doesn’t happen on any of them but I do see it on the David Welch site. I’ll see if I can cause it to happen on my test sites.

      • Randy A. Brown

        It looks like there are a few solutions for jumping header in the tech support area. Hopefully one of those will solve the problem.

        • Thanks, Randy, I’ll take a look. I typically notice it on sites that have a combination of the header height being shorter than default, the fullscreen menu, and use of the Fullwidth Header module in the Fullwidth Section at the top of a page. You can see an example on one of my builds for a client:

          http://www.brickhousepodcast.com/

          Looking closely now, it looks like the Fullwidth Header background is readjusting to accommodate the new header height. Maybe that’s more the issue. Otherwise, I may try disabling all the animations.

          Thanks, I’ll take a look in the forums.

          • Last comment here, but I resolved the issue.

            I just set the height of the menu height in the Primary Menu Bar in the Customizer to the default height (66) and it fixes the issue. It’s just unfortunate I can’t set a lower header height without the jumping issue. :/

  2. Oh gosh, I can’t believe I see my site up there. I tossed it together in a few hours because Divi can be as little or as much as you need, and here it is. I’m laughing because out of the dozens of Divi sites I’ve done, the “out of the box” one is here. 😀

    • Randy A. Brown

      Hi Kolleen. It is close to out of the box Divi, but in this case I felt that the simpler design highlighted the artwork. Sometimes less is more and yours is a good example of making the simpler design work.

      • Randy, thank you for featuring it. I know the artist will absolutely love this. She’s a wonderful kid and I hope she makes this project into something the whole autism community can share via artwork.

        • Hi Kolleen, which ‘out of the box’ template is it? Thanks

  3. Thanks for sharing. Great inspiration. Currently working with a crafts lady and two artists with similar interests. This article makes a great portfolio to those three clients.

    BTW – I don’t have header loading issues.

  4. That´s a great inspiration. I´m trying to designe my website and I´m finding it really hard, so I´ll really appreciate if you could help me. Can you tell me where I can find information to use the same efects in images that Autsome artist? I mean, how to show text when you hover the mouse over the image.I can´t find the information neither in DIVI’s documentation or tutorials.
    Thank you very much
