How To Add A Fullwidth Header Module To Your Page

Before you can add a fullwidth header module to your page, you will first need to jump into the Divi Builder. Once the Divi Theme has been installed on your website, you will notice a Use Divi Builder button above the post editor every time you are building a new page. Clicking this button will enable the Divi Builder, giving you access to all of the Divi Builder’s modules. Next, click the Use Visual Builder button to launch the builder in Visual Mode. You can also click the Enable Visual Builder button when browsing your website on the front end if you are logged in to your WordPress Dashboard.

Once you have entered the Visual Builder, you can click the gray plus button to add a new module to your page. New fullwidth modules can only be added inside of fullwidth sections. If you are starting a new page, don’t forget to add a fullwidth section to your page first. We have some great tutorials about how to use Divi’s section elements.

Locate the fullwidth header module within the list of modules and click it to add it to your page. The module list is searchable, which means you can also type the word “fullwidth header” and then click enter to automatically find and add the fullwidth header module! Once the module has been added, you will be greeted with the module’s list of options. These options are separated into three main groups: Content, Design and Advanced.
