Transforming the Divi Header with CSS and jQuery

In this webinar, we discuss how you can transform the Divi header to make your web designs really stand out!

We show you a number of ways in which you can use a little bit of code to totally transform your Divi header, such as adding attractive transitions to the standard horizontal menu, changing up the slide-in menu to add an eye-catching grid and more!


For a full tutorial including screenshots of the webinar demonstrations, have a look at our post, “3 Ways to Create a Unique Divi Header with CSS and jQuery.”

Transforming the Divi Header Tutorial One

#top-menu a:before {

width: calc(100% + 20px);
background: red;
z-index: -1;
border-radius: 4px;
height: 120px;
transform: skewY(0deg);
transition: .4s ease-in-out all;

#top-menu a:hover:before {
top: -60px;
transform: skewY(20deg);

#top-menu a:hover {
color: #fff;
opacity: 1;

#top-menu li:nth-child(1) a:before {
background: #ac3b4a;

#top-menu li:nth-child(2) a:before {

    Thanks – would be nice to see a demo of what it looks like.

  2. Stephen

    Great tutorial. And it’s also the small things that you learn, like calc() on widths in css. Brilliant!

  3. Timm

    Hi there
    Today is already tomorrow, right? 🙂

  4. Shelle

    Because the video is over an hour long, it would be great to see a screenshot of what the menu transformations look like (maybe before the code) so I can decide if this is something I really want to watch now, or later! I know I am in the minority, but I hate video and will only watch if there is something I know I really want to know.

    That said, thanks for all of the awesome resources for Divi!! 🙂

    loved the video SJ, and learning about calc and pseudo. I tried this on a practice site and used really light colours so I added a box shadow to define them … very cool …
