Divi  – A section above the main header

Divi – A section above the main header

This is a cool way to add a whole section (or layout if you wish) above the main navigation and then have it stick to the top during scroll. It’s pretty cool.

You need this

To start with, go get the child theme,

or if you’re using a child theme, add this code to your functions.php

And make sure your header is set to stick to the top.

The code

Here’s the php code you need to add right above header id=”main-header” in the header.php file. (copy the header.php from Divi into the child theme if it’s not already there. Edits to the child theme file won’t be lost on updates to the parent theme)

<?php if ( is_home() || is_front_page() ) : 
	echo do_shortcode('[ai_layout_sc id="000000"]');
 endif; ?>

Please change the shortcode id number to whatever number your section had in the library.

Then add this CSS

.home.page #page-container {
 padding-top:0px !important
}
.home.page #page-container header#main-header {
 position:relative;
 -webkit-transition:all 0.5s ease-in-out;
 -moz-transition:all 0.5s ease-in-out;
 -o-transition:all 0.5s ease-in-out;
 -ms-transition:all 0.5s ease-in-out;
 transition:all 0.5s ease-in-out
}
.home.page #page-container header#main-header.et-fixed-header {
 position:fixed;
 -webkit-transition:all 0.5s ease-in-out;
 -moz-transition:all 0.5s ease-in-out;
 -o-transition:all 0.5s ease-in-out;
 -ms-transition:all 0.5s ease-in-out;
 transition:all 0.5s ease-in-out
}

and you’re done!

New tutorials

Why no ads?

Hi, I'm PK, and I maintain and publish content on this site for two reasons.

  1. To give back to the community. I learned so much from people's tutorials and StackOverflow that I wanted to contribute and help others.

  2. To provide a more structured learning experience. People struggle to find the course that guides them from start to finish, based off of real life experience, and my courses provide that.

The only "ads" I have here are for my own courses, and maybe an affiliate link, but that's it. They fund the website resources and provide more motivation for me to produce better content.

Any bit of interest helps. Even sharing with your friends, suggesting my courses to your developer or designer, or subscribing to my YT channel, or joining our Discord. Thanks and I'll see you around!
