Adding a map to your website is a great way to show your visitors where you or your business is located. With Divi‘s built-in settings, you have full creative control over the design of your map module and any surrounding design elements. Take your designs to another level by applying scroll effects to your module. With several different types of effects to choose from and settings to fine-tune the effect until you achieve exactly what you want, using scroll effects can help you add eye-catching movement to your website modules. In this post, we will show you how to enlarge your map module on scroll with Divi’s scroll effects.

Let’s get started!

Layout 1

Create a New Page with a Premade Layout

Let’s start by using a premade layout from the Divi library. For this design, we will use the Acai Bowl Landing Page from the Acai Bowl Layout Pack.

Add a new page to your website and give it a title, then select the option to Use Divi Builder.

We are going to add the map module to the “Come Visit Us” section on the landing page. Start by adding a new row with a single column.

Enable Scaling Up and Down. This will allow our map module to increase in size as you scroll down the page.

Let’s fine-tune the scaling settings. Adjust the starting, mid, and ending scale. You can achieve a more subtle scale effect by keeping the numbers relatively close together. If there is a big difference between the numbers, you will achieve a more drastic scale effect.

  • Starting Scale: 80%
  • Mid Scale: 90%
  • Ending Scale: 100%
