Divi Overlays is Now Available!
A little over two weeks ago we unveiled a sneak peek to a plugin we’ve been working on for quite some time here at Divi Life. This plugin is of course Divi Overlays. The response we received from the Divi community after we released the preview was far better than I could have ever expected!
So it further confirmed my suspicion that Divi users want an easy way to create beautiful full screen overlays using the Divi Builder! It also confirmed that Divi Overlays is extremely versatile, and has SO many different use cases.
So what is Divi Overlays?
While first off, I’ll tell you what it isn’t. Divi Overlays is not just another boring pop-up or modal builder. Divi Overlays is a plugin that let’s you create beautiful, full screen overlays with the builder you already know how to use: the Divi Builder.
Divi Overlays allows you to take advantage of Divi’s 38+ built in modules to create gorgeous edge to edge overlays. Plus, you can also use shortcodes from other plugins for even more possibilities.
So with Divi Overlays, the possibilities of what you can create in an overlay are truly endless. Here’s an example using the WooCommerce shopping cart shortcode in a Divi Overlay with our WooCommerce Divi child theme.
What about triggers?
Divi Overlays allows you to use anything on the page as a click trigger. So text and images can of course be triggers, as well as Divi modules such as the button module (or any other module really).
So is Divi Overlays just for marketing purposes like subscribe forms?
Definitely not. While Divi Overlays is perfect for creating subscribe forms, content upgrades, etc., that just scratches the surface. Divi Overlays can be used for things like image galleries, contact pages, shopping carts, featured products, pricing tables, etc.
We hope you enjoy Divi Overlays and find it as useful as we do. We have big plans for the plugin and lots of feature additions are in the works. If there’s something you’d like to see added, or have a question about Divi Overlays, let us know in the comments below!
