Download a FREE CTA Column Swipe Hero Section Design for Divi

Your page’s hero section deserves all the attention it can get. There are endless ways to style your hero section, depending on what your website is about and how your target audience behaves. For some websites, it can come in handy to place multiple column CTA cards without creating an overwhelming experience. A great way to approach it is by creating column swipe CTA cards. In today’s Divi tutorial, we’ll show you how to create a stunning design from scratch that tackles this technique. You’ll be able to download the JSON file for free as well!

Let’s get to it.

Before we dive into the tutorial, let’s take a quick look at the outcome across different screen sizes.

Let’s Start Recreating!

Add New Section

Gradient Background

Add a new section to the page you’re working on, open the section settings and insert a gradient background.

  • Color 1: #ffffff
  • Color 2: #f5ede5
  • Gradient Direction: 90deg
  • Start Position: 17%
  • End Position: 17%

Column Swipe CTAs

Spacing

Move on to the design tab and add some custom top and bottom padding across different screen sizes.

  • Top Padding: 5vw (Desktop), 10vw (Tablet), 13vw (Phone)
  • Bottom Padding: 5vw (Desktop), 10vw (Tablet), 13vw (Phone)

Column Swipe CTAs

Add Row #1

Column Structure

Continue by adding a new row using the following column structure:

Column Swipe CTAs

Background Color

Without adding any modules yet, open the row settings and change the background color.

  • Background Color: #fff6ed

Column Swipe CTAs

Sizing

Move on to the design tab and change the sizing settings of the row as well.

  • Use Custom Gutter Width: Yes
  • Gutter Width: 1

We’re also adding some custom padding values to the spacing settings.

  • Top Padding: 6vw
  • Bottom Padding: 6vw

Border

Go to the border settings next and add a left border using the following settings:

Box Shadow

Add a subtle box shadow to create depth in the hero section.

  • Box Shadow Blur Strength: 100px
  • Shadow Color: rgba(0,0,0,0.22)

Column Swipe CTAs

CSS Class

And use a CSS class in the advanced tab. Later on this post, we’ll use this CSS class to hide the scrollbar.

  • CSS Class: swipe-scrollbar

Column Swipe CTAs

Main Element

To create a horizontal scroll/swipe, we’ll need to place the columns horizontally. We’ll do that by adding some custom CSS code in the main element of the row.

display: grid;
grid-template-columns: repeat(6, 100%);
grid-column-gap: 2vw;

Column Swipe CTAs

Overflows

Move on to the visibility settings and change the overflows of the row.

  • Horizontal Overflow: Scroll
  • Vertical Overflow: Hidden

Column Swipe CTAs

Column Settings

Once you’ve completed the row settings, you can open the first column’s settings.

Column Swipe CTAs

Gradient Background

Add a gradient background.

  • Color 1: rgba(245,237,229,0.91)
  • Color 2: rgba(219,34,65,0.84)
  • Start Position: 35%
  • End Position: 81%
  • Place Gradient Above Background Image: Yes

Column Swipe CTAs

Background Image

Along with a background image.

Column Swipe CTAs

  • Left Padding: 2vw (Desktop), 5vw (Tablet), 7vw (Phone)
  • Right Padding: 2vw (Desktop), 5vw (Tablet), 7vw (Phone)

Column Swipe CTAs

Border

Continue by adding ’20px’ border radius to each one of the corners in the border settings.

Column Swipe CTAs

Main Element

Another important part in making this work is adding one single line of CSS code to the main element of the column.

width: 100% !important;

Column Swipe CTAs

Add Text Module #1 to Column 1

Add H3 Content

Time to start adding modules! You can add as many modules as you want and style them to your own preference. If you, however, want to recreate the exact same example that was shared in the preview of this post, start with a Text Module and insert some H3 content.

  • Text Font Weight: Light
  • Text Color: #e92640

Column Swipe CTAs

Clone Column up to 5 Times & Reuse for Other CTAs

Once you’ve completed the first column and all the modules in it, you can clone the entire column up to 5 times, depending on how many column swipe CTA cards you want to display. Make sure you change all the copy for each column duplicate along with the button links.

Column Swipe CTAs

Add Row #2

Column Structure

On to the second row! We’ll use this row to create an overlap with the previous one. Choose the following column structure:

  • Use Custom Gutter Width: Yes
  • Gutter Width: 1
  • Width: 100%
  • Max Width: 100%

Column Swipe CTAs

Spacing

Later on the post, we’ll add the modules we need and create a negative top overlap to make it seem like the modules are part of the first row. This means we don’t need the second row to take up any space in our design at all. That’s why we’re removing all default top and bottom row padding.

  • Top Padding: 0px
  • Bottom Padding: 0px

  1. Now, if ET had its own dynamic content tools to aggregate data – this little gem would take an another magnitude in usefulness.

  2. Hello,
    Thank you for this tutorial and sharing the file.
    All parameters are easily adjustable to many configurations, it’s perfect.

  3. Thanks for the article and download 🙂

  4. So what I wonder is this. There are only 5 comments here. How many people downloaded the json file?

  5. I knew it was you, Donjete! Awesome job again! Thanks a lot for the download as well!

    • Thanks Elisandro, happy you like it! Thanks for leaving a comment! 🙂

  6. For a newbie this is mind-blowing many thanks

    • Always nice to hear. Glad you’ve enjoyed the tutorial, Peter! 🙂

  7. Hi Donjëte!

    This looks amazing! I’ve installed the premade layout but cant get it to move on scroll, nor on click nor on both on desktop. On mobile is just fine… i’ve looked in to it but all css is in place so i dont get why its not working?

    • Hey Lotje, I’ve only recently noticed that it’s not possible to scroll on a PC (laptop and smaller devices work) without a scrollbar, so you’ll have to delete the code module or style the scrollbar using the CSS class in the code module. I’ve updated the JSON file in this post (the code module has been removed). Hope that helps and happy you like it! 🙂

  8. thanks for sharing very impressive article its very helpful to us

  9. Love the concept of this but I downloaded the json file and even went through the steps to confirm everything was in place. Can’t seem to get this to scroll on desktop. I’m only able to see the title and first 2 swipe modules.

    • Hey Rebecca, happy you like it! The only way to scroll on desktop is by using a touchpad, so I can see that becoming difficult for PCs. I would recommend leaving out the code module entirely or styling the column’s scrollbar using that class: .swipe-scrollbar::-webkit-scrollbar

      • Wait!
        Did you just say the json file doesn’t work on PC?
        IF that’s the case, why not flag the entire tip with that up front?
        And then deal with the details to modify the json file should one be so unfortunate to be on Pc?
        Just saying.

        • I created it the tutorial on my laptop (touchpad) where it did work and unfortunately it didn’t cross my mind before I read Rebecca’s comment. Although the change that needs to be made is minimal (just delete the code module), I’ll happily update the JSON file 🙂

      • Dear Donjete, could you explain in more details how to fix the bug for swaping please.

        Regards

        • I’ve updated the JSON file in this post (deleted the code module), so now the scrollbar shows up. This allows people on a PC to use the scrollbar instead of swiping. If you’re using the old JSON file, you can just delete the code module or use the CSS class to style the scrollbar as you please. Hope that helps! 🙂

  10. Hello, I did download twice on 2 test website but the json dont work for me no swipe ?

    the design is great thanks

    • Hey Marc, I’ve updated the JSON file or you can just delete the code module that’s included in the old JSON. That’ll allow the scrollbar to show up so people on PCs can use that instead. Happy you like the design! 🙂

  11. I posted a comment something like 4 days ago on this post making a big compliment to Donjete and thanking for the work. It wasn’t published. And then, I look around and see some comments of people complaining or things like that. I don’t really know what I am doing wrong. It is not the first time it happens. My comments stay for moderation as every comment, but sometimes, never get published. Really, even compliments get blocked.

    • Some comments get published without pending approval, unfortunately, we don’t get a say in what akismet clears right away or puts as a pending comment first. We most definitely appreciate your comments, although sometimes it takes a little while for us to go through the pending comments and accept them. Hope that clears things up and I’m happy to see you’re enjoying the tutorials! 🙂

      • Nice. Thanks a lot, Donjete! 🙂

  12. This is a great way to showcase multiple CTA cards in hero section without having a design . I enjoyed this tutorial .please could you explain in more details how to fix the bug for swaping please.

    • I’ve updated the JSON file in this post. If you’re still working on the old JSON, you can just delete the code module which allows the scrollbar to show up. Happy you like the tutorial and design! 🙂

  13. Hello
    Great design. For the desktop scroll problem, adding scroll button might resolve the issue and make it more comprehensible for the website user.
    Just an idea ^^
    Good day.

    • Happy you like the design! I’ve updated the JSON file in this post (removed the code module so the scrollbar shows up and people on PCs can use it).

      • Hello
        Yes i saw it. But i think i will try to implement scroll button for pc. The design is very original but not every user will understand that they need to swipe to see the rest of the text. If i’m able to do it i will send you the code ( of course if you are interest)

        • Hi Keberin
          Good idea! Do you finally did the code to implement scroll button for pc. ?

  14. Amazing design. I just downloaded and implemented on my client’s website and he gave me 5 stars on the order and the best he tipped me. Thanks a lot for the design.

    • Great to hear! Happy you’ve enjoyed the download/tutorial! 🙂

  15. I’ve downloaded the json file and uploaded to the library… but it is not showing up anywhere to be used. so unfortunate, as I’d have love to have used it on a current project.

    • If you’re using the latest Divi version, there’s a small JSON bug going on that’ll be fixed very soon. In the meantime, you can go to your Divi Library, upload the JSON file, click on the JSON’s ‘edit’ option inside the Divi Library and resave the layout to your library by giving it another name. Once you create a new page, the library item with a new name will show up in ‘Your Saved Layouts’. Or, you can quickly roll back to the previous Divi version in the ‘Updates’ tab of your Divi Theme Options and upload the layout.

  16. This is simply gorgeous. Bravo, Donjete!
