Divi Bars guide
In this section, I’ll go over the basics of using Divi Bars, so be sure you are comfortable using Divi before you get this plugin as it requires some knowledge of the theme. A good place to start is the Divi documentation.
How to create a Divi Bar
Go to Divi Bars > Add New and you’ll see the options below where you can create a Divi Bar which is very similar to creating a page or post.
You have to set an Automatic trigger to “none” it will not display the bar you’ve created to change this to your preference for instance “timed Delay” with a specific time delay of 0 seconds.
How Do I Customize the DIVI Bar?
If you’ve been using Divi and are well aware of how to design using its modules then using Divi Bars is a breeze, as it uses the very same Divi builder to customize and style the bars.
In fact, it’s the same as creating a normal layout and you can pretty much use any module from the Divi Builder!
Can I customize the Divi Bar Background
The Divi Bars background allows you to choose the color of the background and the font as well as further customizations like opacity etc.
In additional settings you can make further customizations to the bar like:
- CSS Selector Trigger:
Whether you want to position it to the top or bottom and customize how it is triggered.
- Close Button Customizations:
This sets the number of days the cookie will last and also allows you to customize the close button in the cookies bar with a real-time preview option.
- Automatic Triggers:
This lets you customize how the Divi bar will display. Each trigger has its own setting also if you leave it to “none” it will not display the Divi Bar.
- Timed Delay:
Specifies the time delay before the Divi bar is triggered. Setting it to 0 will display it instantly.
- Scroll Percentage:
Specify the number of pixels or the percentage scroll before the Divi bar is triggered basically after a certain point
- Exit intent:
This will display the bar when the user’s mouse moves to the address bar.
You also have the option to disable on mobile and customize how many times to display per page load.
Divi Bars Pre-made templates library:
If you aren’t really into creating Divi Bars from scratch and want something pre-made like the pre-made Divi Layouts you’re in luck because Divi Life has a whole multitude of pre-made Divi Bar templates to choose from.
You simply go to your Divi Life accounts section to download the desired layout and import it into the Divi Bars Layouts Page builder using the Divi Portability tool.
Can I use CSS to customize it further?
If you have issues with the padding or something else simply add your own CSS via the theme settings or within the section itself like how you would whilst designing a specific layout.
How does the Divi Bar Look?
Ok, that’s enough to talk about how to use Divi Bars, let’s take a look at it in action.
As you can see the possibilities are endless and you can create a bar for almost anything. If you don’t want to create one from scratch then you can simply pick one from the wide selection in the Divi Bars library.
