How to Style Your Fullwidth Header Module’s Background

by | Sep 27, 2022 | Everything Divi for WordPress

Divi’s Fullwidth Header module makes it easy to design a stunning hero section for your website in just minutes. A hero section is the very first section of your website that your visitors will see, so you’ll want it to be branded, informative, and compelling. Thankfully, the Divi Fullwidth Header comes packed with content options: header text, subtitle text, body text, two images, and two buttons. We’ll be utilizing all of these elements in our fullwidth headers today.

In this post, we’re going to demonstrate 3 ways to design your fullwidth header’s background with eye-catching designs. Ready to get started? Let’s dive in!

Design Preview

Let’s take a look at the 3 fullwidth headers we’ll be designing today.
