How To Add A Fullwidth Slider Module To Your Page

Before you can add a fullwidth slider 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 Use 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 modules can only be added inside of Rows. If you are starting a new page, don’t forget to add a row to your page first. We have some great tutorials about how to use Divi’s row and section elements.

fullwidth slider module

Locate the fullwidth slider 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 slider” and then click enter to automatically find and add the fullwidth slider 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.

Use Case Example: Add a Fullwidth Slider hero section to your homepage

A fullwidth slider is a great way to showcase multiple CTA’s above the fold on your homepage. The combination of images and content can really give your hero section a professional feel that stands out.

For this example I’m going to add a fullwidth slider to serve as the main hero section of a homepage.

fullwidth slider module

Using the Visual Builder, add a Fullwidth Section to the top of your webpage. Then insert the Fullwidth Slider module to your new section. In the Content tab of the Fullwidth Slider Settings, click + Add New Item to create your first slide.

fullwidth slider module

In the slide settings for your first slide, update the following options:

Content Options

Heading: [enter the slide heading]
Button Text: [enter the button text]
Content: [enter the main slide text content]
Button URL: [enter the destination URL for the Slide button]
Background Image: [enter the image that will serve as a background for the slide]

Design Options

Use Background Overlay: YES
Background Overlay Color: rgba(0,0,0,0.2) *this overlay slightly darkens the background image to make the text more readable.

Save Slide Settings

Now duplicate the slide you just created and update the new slide with new content as needed. Repeat this for all slides you want to add.

fullwidth slider module

That’s it. For this example I’m only including two slides, but the result is an effective fullwidth hero slider with multiple calls to action that engages the user to click the button for more information. Since this is your main call to action for your website, I suggest performing split tests to your fullwidth slider using Divi Leads and see which one converts better.

Fullwidth Slider Content Options

Within the content tab you will find all of the module’s content elements, such as text, images and icons. Anything that controls what appears in your module will always be found within this tab.

Choose whether or not you would like to display left and right navigation arrows.

Controls

Choose whether or not you would like to display the circle buttons/slide indicators at the bottom of the slider.

Admin Label

This will change the label of the module in the builder for easy identification. When using WireFrame view in the Visual Builder, these labels will appear within the module block in the Divi Builder interface.

Fullwidth Slider Design Options

Within the design tab you will find all of the module’s styling options, such as fonts, colors, sizing and spacing. This is the tab you will use to change how your module looks. Every Divi module has a long list of design settings that you can use to change just about anything.

Button Icon Placement

You can choose to have your button icon display on the left or the right side of your button.

Only Show Icon On Hover for Button

By default, button icons are only displayed on hover. If you would like the icon to always appear, disable this setting.

Button Hover Text Color

When the button is hovered over by a visitor’s mouse, this color will be used. The color will transition from the base color defined in the previous settings.

fullwidth slider module

CSS ID

These classes can be used in your Divi Child Theme or within the Custom CSS that you add to your page or your website using the Divi Theme Options or Divi Builder Page Settings.

Custom CSS

Custom CSS can also be applied to the module and any of the module’s internal elements. Within the Custom CSS section, you will find a text field where you can add custom CSS directly to each element. CSS input into these settings are already wrapped within style tags, so you need only enter CSS rules separated by semicolons.

Automatic Animation

If you would like the slider to slide automatically, without the visitor having to click the next button, enable this option and then adjust the rotation speed below if desired.

Automatic Animation Speed (in ms)

Here you can designate how fast the slider fades between each slide, if ‘Automatic Animation’ option is enabled above. The higher the number the longer the pause between each rotation.

Continue Automatic Slide on Hover

Turning this on will allow automatic sliding to continue on mouse hover.

Visibility

This option lets you control which devices your module appears on. You can choose to disable your module on tablets, smart phones or desktop computers individually. This is useful if you want to use different modules on different devices, or if you want to simplify the mobile design by eliminating certain elements from the page.

Individual Fullwidth Slider Content Options

fullwidth slider module

Heading

Define the title text for your slider here.

Button Text

If you would like to display a button below your slider content enter the button text here. Leave this blank if you do not wish to display a button.

Content

Enter the body content of your slider here. Note that the amount of text you enter here will determine the height of your slides.

Button URL

If you display a button, insert a valid web URL in this field to define the destination link.

Slide Image

If you add a slide image, it will appear to the left of your slide text on top of your slide background. If you do not specify a slide image you will be left with a centered, text only slide. Because the height of each slide is determined by the text, if your slide image is tall enough it will drop below the bottom of the slide, creating bottom aligned image. See an example of this on the third slide on this page.

Note the height of a slide with a slide image could be determined by a taller slide in the slider so make sure your slide image is tall enough to accommodate if you wish to have a bottom aligned image. For legibility reasons, slide images will only appear in sliders that are in ⅔ column, ¾ column, or 1 column widths. Also, slide images will not display on browser widths of less than 768 pixels. The widths of slide images are defined below. We recommend that your slide images are at least this wide.

Slide Video

If you add a slide video, it will appear to the left of your slide text on top of your slide background. If you do not specify a slide video you will be left with a centered, text only slide. Because the height of each slide is determined by the text, if your slide image is tall enough it will drop below the bottom of the slide, creating bottom aligned image. See an example of this on the third slide on this page.

Pause Video

Allow video to be paused by other players when they begin playing

Background Image

If defined, this image will be used as the background for this module. To remove a background image, simply delete the URL from the settings field.

The height of a slide is determined by the amount of text content that you add. If you have multiple slides, the slider will take on the height of the tallest slide.

The width of your slider is determined by the browser width. Based on standard screen sizes we recommend that your images are at least 1280px by 768px.

Background Image Position

By default, background images are displayed in the center of the slide. You can use this setting to change the positioning to top, bottom, left, right, or any of the four corners of the slide.

Background Image Size

By default, background images will be scaled up proportionally to ensure that they fill the entire slide. However, you can use this option to change the default behavior. “Cover” is the default behavior, which will scale the image to cover the entire slide area. “Fit” will also force the image to cover the entire area, however, it will force the image’s height and width to match the height and width of the slider. This may result in a skewed image, but it will prevent image cropping. “Actual Size” will not scale the image at all and will display it at its native size.

Background Color

If you would simply like to use a solid color background for your slide, use the color picker to define a background color.

Background Video MP4

All videos should be uploaded in both .MP4 .WEBM formats to ensure maximum compatibility in all browsers. Upload the .MP4 version here. Important Note: Video backgrounds are disabled from mobile devices. Instead, your bkacground image will be used. For this reason, you should define both a background image and a background video to ensure best results.

Background Video WEBM

All videos should be uploaded in both .MP4 .WEBM formats to ensure maximum compatibility in all browsers. Upload the .WEBM versions here. Important Note: Video backgrounds are disabled from mobile devices. Instead, your bkacground image will be used. For this reason, you should define both a background image and a background video to ensure best results.

Background Video Width

In order for videos to be sized correctly, you must input the exact width (in pixels) of your video here.

Background Video Height

When hovering over a slider module, arrows appear that allow the visitor the navigate through each slide. By default, these arrows inherit the slide’s main text color. However, you can define a custom color for these arrows using this setting.
