How to Make Your Divi Fullwidth Header Module Fullscreen

Fullscreen headers take the entire screen, regardless of the screen size of the visitor. This is great for grabbing the attention of users. It’s also great for directing them to your call to action. Fortunately, it’s easy to make a fullscreen header with Divi’s Fullwidth Header Module. In this post, we’ll show you how to build a fullwidth header, turn it fullscreen, and style it. You can use this approach to build any fullscreen hero section for your pages!

Why Make a Fullscreen Header with Divi’s Fullwidth Header Module?

Before we discuss how to make a fullscreen header, let’s talk about why Divi users might want one.

A fullscreen header presents specific elements in a contained section. This section presents these elements in a clean layout that draws attention and performs several tasks.

Firstly, this can be used to display a call to action that can lead your visitors into your sales funnel. It’s a great place to mention a specific product or service.

Secondly, it can present the user with an interesting design that keeps them on the website. Websites only have a few seconds to capture the attention of visitors.

There are a few things to keep in mind when creating a fullscreen header:

  • Follow common design practices for colors and fonts. Be sure they’re legible and fit with the topic of your website.
  • Keep the design simple and clean. Don’t use too many images, links, or buttons. Focus on a few things. Less is more.
  • Make sure the fullscreen header is responsive. A fullscreen header must look great and work properly on all screen sizes.

How to Make Your Divi Fullwidth Header a Fullscreen Header

Start by adding a fullwidth section to the page you’re working on. Then, add a Fullwidth Header Module to the fullwidth section.

We now have a fullscreen header. It’s that simple.

We can also add a button that indicates for the user to scroll down. However, we do have to enable it. This button is always in view in the fullscreen option. The fullscreen header option always matches the visitor’s screen height.

In the module’s settings, we’ll see a section called Scroll Down Icon under the Layout options. Click the button to enable Show Scroll Down Button.

Divi Fullwidth Header Fullscreen Header Example

Now that we’ve discussed why we’d want to make a Fullwidth Header fullscreen and see how to accomplish the task, let’s look at an example. I’ll create a full-width header using the hero section of a Divi layout.

For this example, I’m using the hero section from the homepage in the free Photography Studio Layout Pack that’s available within Divi. I’ll customize this hero section using the fonts and colors from the layout to create a unique full-width header.

Fullscreen Header Module Settings

Here are the steps for each section of settings in the Fullscreen Header Module.

Text

First, add the text that will be visible in the fullwidth header. This includes the title, sub-title, content (I’ll use Divi’s built-in dummy text for this), and the button text.

  • Title: Divi Photography Studio
  • Subtitle: Photography
  • Button 1: Project Brief
  • Button 2: Project Planning
  • Body: content
