So you can easily find out what Divi designers choose to build their popups — no matter what their requirements are. This was Divi Modal Popup’s brief. Let’s get more inside its features and options.

Features of Divi Modal Popup

Not one, two, or even three, Divi Modal Popup has got multiple features that enable you to build an outstanding popup for Divi. The following are the unique and useful features that you could utilize for your Divi popup,

Distinguish Multiple Divi Popups With Unique Modal ID

To enable Divi Modal Popup to work seamlessly without any issues, it allows you to assign a particular popup a Unique ID.

Divi Modal Popup Unique Modal ID option in the Configuration setting

This simple approach makes Divi distinguish different Divi Modal popups and their working. For instance, you have added multiple popups on a page from those; one requires re-rendering. Now, without a unique ID, Divi may not find out which popup to re-render and might end either re-rendering all or nothing. Therefore, a unique ID helps you build Divi popups working under different circumstances easily.

Create Divi Popups With Different Triggers

After Unique Modal ID, you get multiple modal popup trigger options — Elements, On Page Load, and Exit Intent.

Multiple modal trigger types

Elements trigger allows you to add popups using different Divi elements. The as same can be done in the other popup builders for Divi that allows you to add full-screen overlays with manual click triggers. We’ll discuss this more in the next point.

On Page Load Trigger option

On Page Load trigger is an automatic popup trigger that showcases a popup upon page load. You could set the time after which it should display the popup once the page gets completely loaded using the Trigger Delay option. It’s also the trigger that provides you with the modal re-rendering ability. Exit Intent is another automatic popup trigger that displays a popup when the user tries to leave the current page based on mouse movements.

Utilize Different Trigger Types on Popups

When you select the Elements trigger type in the configuration setting, it provides you with further Elements Types — Button, Image, Icon, Text, CSS ID, and CSS Class.

Elements Trigger Types in the Configuration settings

With each element type, you get additional options in the same configuration setting as well as in the Design tab. When you select the Button element, you get the option to input its text.

Here are some of the Divi Modal Popup’s Element trigger types demos.





ESC Key Popup Close Support

Divi popups builder plugins available in the market provide the option to close the popup using the escape key. The same can be done using the Divi Modal Popup plugin if you want to provide users with the ability to close a popup using the ESC key. To achieve this effect on your Divi popups, you need to enable Close Modal on ESC in the same configuration setting.

And your Divi popups will start to close when users press the ESC key on their keyboard.

Display Modal Title With Close Icon

Without a title, a modal window would look suspicious to the users. Therefore, to make it look clear and easy to digest, the Divi Modal Popup includes the option to display a title on its header.

Divi Modal Popup Header settings

To show the title on the popup, you need first to open Modal Header settings and then enable Show Header. However, by default, Divi Modal Popup displays a header. So, there’s no need to enable it again, but in case you want to disable it. Then simply check Show Header as NO.

Disabling Divi Modal Popup header

Plus, using this same option, you could decide to display Close Icon in the modal or not. This is how the Divi popup looks with a title and close icon.

Use Text, Image, Video and Library Layouts in the Modal Body

The main part of a popup is its body area. And to make it highly functional, the Divi Modal Popup plugin includes different options to add content in it.

Modal Body Content Types

The plugin allows you to insert Text, Image, Video, and Divi Library Layout for the modal body content. Thus, making it to use for different web development and marketing purpose.

Show/Hide Modal Footer With Close Button

Instead of using a close icon in the header of the modal popup. If you want to provide users with a close button in the popup’s footer, you could easily do that using the Modal Footer settings.

Modal Footer Content Settings

Simply, check Show Footer as YES and input the button title in the field. And your modal popup will have a close button.

Utilize Divi PopScroll Settings

Websites that contain restricted content or allow users to view complete information on certain conditions. In this case, website owners apply a popup that requests users to opt for their program to view everything. Or you could consider websites that include ads, and if users installed an ad blocker on their browser, the website would show a popup restricting the content, similar to the following popup.

Rotten Tomatoes Ad window

Most of the time, if the popup is not optimized for scroll protection, users might view the content by scrolling. However, if you’d use the Divi Modal Popup, then you could protect your content from being seen through scrolling the page. It provides you with the option that disables the scroll in the browser window while you’re showing the popup. Want to apply this feature? You need to visit the Scroll Settings, then check Disable Website Scroll as YES.

Divi Modal Popup scroll settings

With that, it also provides you with the option to add a scroll in the modal window. So, if the popup includes longer content, using this feature could make it more accessible.

Apply Different Background Customizations

To match the website’s look and feel, the Divi Modal Popup also features background customization options. Using the Background settings, you could tweak the background of Modal, Trigger Element, Modal Overlay, Modal Header, Body and Footer with Color, Gradient and Image.

The way modal title is important; the body content also has a greater significance in building a Divi popup. Moreover, when you select text as the body content type, then it’s way more important than all other elements.

Modal Close Button

With a close button at the footer of the modal window, you might provide users with a better way to close the popup. But, if it’s not designed according to the modal or website’s color scheme, users might ignore it. Therefore, to help you enhance your modal’s close button, the plugin includes the Modal Close Button setting.

Modal Close Button settings in the Design tab
