How to Modify The Template
Open Divi Construction Freebie Header Template
To modify the global header template’s elements, start by opening the template.
Set Desktop Menu
This Divi Construction freebie header design has a desktop as well as a tablet/mobile design. Let’s begin by selecting a menu for the desktop view of our header.
Add Link to Button
Next, we add a link to our Button Module. Remember to also change the text on the button to match your call-to-action.
Upload Your Logo
Next, you want to edit the Image Module. Upload your own image and logo, preferably a PNG with a transparent background.
Set Your Social Media Links and Account
Edit the links and social networks within the header’s Social Media Follow Module.
Select Menu for Tablet and Mobile
After setting our desktop elements, we need to switch to the tablet view. This will enable us to edit our tablet and mobile elements.
Then, we select our menu for the tablet and mobile
Upload Inverse Logo
For the mobile menu, we use a yellow background color. Because of this, you will want to use the inverse color of your logo. We would suggest using the dark color of your logo for the mobile menu’s logo, as opposed to the light-colored version so that it can be seen.
Update Button for Smaller Devices
Edit the Button Module within the header to reflect your call-to-action of choice. Also, add a link destination.
Setup Your Social Media Follow Module
Finally, we’ll update the social media networks within our Social Media Follow Module. Don’t forget to double-check your social media URLs to make sure that they’re correct and active!
Open Footer Template
Continue by opening the global footer inside the default website template.
Edit Footer Blurb Module
Our footer has several Blurb Modules that need to be updated. You will need to update the Blurb Title and Blurb Body. You can also take it a step further and update the Blurb Icon as well.
Edit Social Media Icons
We have another Social Media Follow Module in the footer of our design. Add your relevant social media account and link them correctly.
Edit Static Modules
There are a number of modules throughout our footer design that are static and will require your immediate attention. Items like the Service section and the section titles need to be updated to reflect your business needs.
Select Menu for the Divi Construction freebie Footer
Our Divi Construction freebie footer design has a Menu Module. Select your menu of choice to use in the footer.
