Divi UI Challenge #9 – Product Tiles

by | Dec 12, 2016 | Divi UI Challenge, Tutorial

Hello and welcome back to another Divi UI Challenge! This week we’re tackling a Product Tiles section, perfect for highlighting three seperate product options. Like always, we’re building with the standard Divi builder settings and have a few additional minor CSS tweaks.

Here’s a screen grab of what we’ll be building today.

Video Tutorial

Ok, Let’s go!

Firstly from your Dashboard homepage in the top function bar select +New and Page

Add new page

Give your page a title (Product Tiles) and in the far right function column under Template select Blank Page (this removes the footer and menu from the page which makes it a bit easier to design when previewing back and forth).

Blank Page under Template

Now click on Use the Divi Builder. 

use the divi builder

Today we’re going to be working with the Visual Builder again, so click on the Visual Builder Icon.

Use Visual Builder

This wil bring up an ’empty’ section that looks something like this.

Scroll down to Background Color and select/insert your chosen color (Blue, #4479f1). Save & Exit by pressing the Green Tick in the bottom right.

Save & Exit

Now we’re going to add another section under our default one. So at the bottom of the Blue Section click on the Blue + Icon to Add New Section

In the pop-up window select Regular Section

And then a Three-Column-Row

Module window will pop up for the first column – select the Image option.

Using the Upload button, select your chosen image and upload.

Our icon images are from Flat Icon

Scroll down in the Image Settings and change the Image Alignment to Centre.

Over in Design Settings

Set the Max Image Width to 60px. 

And under Custom Margin set the Bottom Margin to 40px. 

Save & Exit

Save & Exit

Under each of the Image Modules we’re going to add a Call to Action Module, so click on the Dark Grey + Icon

and select Call to Action

Under General  Settings fill in as follows

Title: Cuppa

Button URL: #

Url Opens: In the Same Window

Button Text: Let’s Go

Header Line Height: 1em

Save & Exit

Save & Exit

Should be looking something like this.

Now moving onto styling our columns a bit more, therefore styling the Three Tiles.

Click on the Green Row Settings at the top of your first Image module.

Over in Design Settings

Scroll down and only complete the following

Column 1 Background Color:White

Column 1 Custom Padding: Top: 80px ; Right: 40px ; Bottom: 80px ; Left: 40px;

Column 2 Background Color: White

Column 2 Custom Padding: Top: 120px ; Right: 40px ; Bottom: 120px ; Left: 40px;

Column 3 Background Color: White

Column 3 Custom Padding: Top: 80px ; Right: 40px ; Bottom: 80px ; Left: 40px;

Jump on over to CSS

Now we’re going to add a good ol’ Box Shadow, so jump on over to cssmatic.com and input the following in their Box Shadow Generator

note that we used our Blue (#4479f1) for the shadow color instead of the default

Copy the code generated in the box to the left

And paste back in the Column 1 Main Element, Column 2 Main Element and Column 3 Main Element under CSS Settings.

now onto a few more CSS Settings to our rows

Under Column 1 Main Element input the following (above the already added Box Shadow code)

border-radius: 8px;

margin-top: 40px;

Scroll down to Column 2 Main Element and input the following (above the already added Box Shadow code)

border-radius: 8px;

Then down to Column 3 Main Element and input the following (above the already added Box Shadow code)

border-radius: 8px;

margin-top: 40px;

Save & Exit

Save & Exit

Now we’re going to use the keyboard shortcuts to copy and paste our main Tile elements from the first tile across the other two.

So hover over the Image Modules and the Grey Settings Bar will pop up, while hovering over this bar Press Command-C on your keyboard (Ctrl-C if not on Mac).

 

Then in the second column, hover over the Grey + Icon 

And press Command-V (or Ctrl-V) to paste the image module.

Repeat the paste on the third column.

Repeat the Copy-and-Paste process for the Call to Action module.

You should now have three columns all with an Image module and a Call to Action module in each.

Now to change the images in the second and third columns.

Click on the Grey Settings Icon

And delete the current Image URL, replace by uploading a new on via the Upload button.

Save & Exit

Save & Exit

Now within the Visual Builder we can directly change the Header Text in our Call to Action. 

Just double-click on the text that needs changing. This should highlight the text

Then re-write your preferred text. Ours were Brew and Fix

We’re going to remove two areas of padding using the main Visual Builder userface.

When you hover over the top padded area of the Three-column row, it will highlight green. Click-and-drag the padding from default (26px) to 0px.

Repeat removing the padding for the top Section. 

Almost there!

Now, pop into the Section Settings

And under Background Color, set it to Transparent by selecting white and dragging the far-left opacity setting right down to the bottom

Save & Exit

Save & Exit

Now, to ensure our blue top section is visible when the page is live, we do have to input something into the row (it’s currently empty)

So, click on the +Add New Row Icon in the middle of the blue section

And select a One Column Row, then exit out of the Module pop up window.

The jump into the Row Settings for our Main Three-Column Row

Under Design

Change  Custom Margin Top to : -120px (this overlaps our columns into the blue section)

Save & Exit

Save & Exit

Yay! Well done, Should be looking like this.
