Divi – Adding a section to the slide in menu

Divi – Adding a section to the slide in menu

The Preview

I had a suggestion/request for a tutorial.

This is what you get:


The Video


The Setup

[sc name=”get child theme”]

Or you’re gonna need this functionality in your child theme.

Insert layouts everywhere


So hopefully, you’ll be seeing this:

note: the id number will be different, but don’t worry, just copy paste what you have on your site.


You’re ready to go!

The Code

Open up header.php, and you’ll find this:


in line 128, you’re gonna add this:

<?php echo do_shortcode('[ai_layout_sc id="444"]'); ?>

note: of course when you paste the shortcode, it’ll have your id number, not 444

Now it’ll look like this:


and you’re done!

Extra tips

– The section should have a transparent background (if you want the menu background color to show)
– media queries don’t work (since media queries are for screen widths, not container sizes) so you’ll have to experiment a bit to get the right sizing.

    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!

    Happy Pride Month!

    Pretty simple really.

    Happy pride month to everyone who celebrates it!

    I've been seeing a lot of nasty comments on social media recently, so I wanted to add some extra pixels that lean towards love, empathy, and inclusivity to help balance it out.
