How to Maximize Divi’s Mobile Viewports Using Rotated Copy

Jun 5, 2020 | Everything Divi for WordPress




When designing a website, you have an important choice to make at the very beginning: “What device am I going to design for first?” Often, the answer is desktop. But just because you design for desktop first, doesn’t mean your mobile design can’t be as thorough. By using rotated copy, for instance, you can maximize Divi’s mobile viewports and fit more content inside the mobile viewports without overburdening your visitors or your design. In this tutorial, we’ll show you exactly how to do that inside Divi. You’ll be able to download the JSON file for free as well!

Let’s get to it.
