Undoubtedly, Divi is the best website builder to create functional websites without coding knowledge. If it is slow, you can make Divi fast.

Divi Sticky options are the new level of control that offers extreme design flexibility. Yes, this advanced system contains scroll-based interaction for a high user experience.

Before getting into the Divi Sticky Header tutorial, let me consolidate the benefits of introducing it.

Why Make Divi Header Stick To the Top of Page?

Having a sticky site header offers several benefits! They are

Easy Navigation – As the main menu is always displayed, users will feel comfortable navigating your website. It reduces their frustration and saves time since they don’t need to revisit the top of the page to grab the information they are looking for.

Brand Visibility – A professionally designed header with your business details is always visible to your audience; your brand identity will be constantly reminded and establish trust, improving your online visibility.

High conversions – A precisely designed sticky header can gently push your readers to react to your call to action. This will increase your business sales or leads. So, you may wisely use this place to fill out a form or make them purchase your products.  

Step-By-Step To Design Divi Sticky Header On Scroll

A floating header can contribute to a smoother user experience and increase conversions. Let’s build a sticky header in the Divi theme without CSS codes.

Step 1 – Visit WordPress Dashboard > Theme Builder

Under “Divi” settings, you can see three sections.

Step 2 – Click Add Global Header > Build Global Header.


Step 3 – Now, click the “+” symbol to pick the structure. I chose a three-column structure, and you may pick the suitable one as per your requirements. 


Step 4 – Add a Navigation Menu and Logo through the “Main Menu” module in the first column. Next, add social media buttons in the second column with the help of the “Social Media Follow” module.


In the 3rd section of the Divi Header, let me add the Search feature through the “Search” Module.

Step 5 – Click the green tick button to save the changes.

Note – To customize each element and adjust the extra white spaces, please watch the video for a clear understanding.

Step 6 – I gave a shadow effect for the header to make it visible when it is made sticky. Use the “Shadow Box” settings and save all the changes. 


Step 7 – Now, it’s time to activate the scroll effect. To do so, click the Section settings and go to its “Advanced” tab. Under “Scroll Effect,” pick – Stick to Top from the Sticky position settings. Don’t forget to save the settings.


Step 8 – Go to your WordPress Dashboard > Divi builder, click the green button –  All Changes Saved. Now, you may look at the output by refreshing the design page.
