The first Popup
It’s so simple to turn a Divi section into a Popup!
All Popup Options
This is a Popup
Turns the current Divi section into a Popup. When enabled, additional options become available.
Assign a unique ID to the Popup. You can display this Popup by using this name in an anchor link, like “#slug”.
Close on Background-Click
Here, you can decide whether the Popup can be closed by clicking somewhere outside the Popup.
When this option is disabled, the Popup can only be closed via a close button or pressing the ESC key on the keyboard.
Close other Popups
Here, you can decide whether this Popup should automatically close all other Popups when it is opened.
Enable Exit Intent
When you enable the exit intent trigger, the Popup is automatically opened before the user leaves the current webpage.
Note that this behavior only works on desktop browsers, not on touch devices like phones – Divi Areas Pro has a “back-button trigger” that works on all devices.
Show Close Button
Do you want to display the default close button in the top-right corner of the Popup?
When the close button is hidden, the user can dismiss the Popup by clicking on the background overlay, or pressing the ESC key.
Here, you can choose the color of the built-in close button. The default style is dark (i.e., the “x” icon is dark), which looks good when your Popup has a light background color.
When you design a Popup with a dark background color or image, when use a light button for better contrast.
This option allows you to remove the background color of the close button.
When enabling the transparent background, the close button only shows the x-icon and no square background.
Add a Default Shadow
Decide, whether you want to add a default shadow to your Popup.
You should disable this option, when you set a custom box shadow for this section.
Enable this to display a loading animation in the background of the Popup.
This should be turned on, when the Popup contains an iframe or other content that is loaded dynamically.
Here you can disable the Popup on selected devices.
That is one awesome free plugin – and a real bonus having the API!
What a great contribution to the Divi user community.
See, what’s included in our plugins and why customers love them.
No Close Button
By default, every Popup displays a close button in the top-right corner. In the section settings, you can choose not to display that button.
You can customize the built-in close button in two ways: You can remove the background rectangle and only display the close Icon, and you can invert the colors to make the button look nice on dark backgrounds. This demo applies both changes.
A modal Popup cannot be closed “accidentally”: It ignores any click that is outside the Popup. You need to close the Popup via the Close Button (or the Escape-Key).
Custom Close Button
You can even create your own Close Button and hide the default one. This is simple, as you only need to add the CSS class “close” to any button/link inside the Popup. The element will be turned into a Close Button.
Sample Opt-In Form
In this example, we use a two-column layout inside the Popup: The left column displays an image module, and on the right side contains an email opt-in module.
We’ve also applied some styles to the section – like dark background color, a maximum width of 1080 pixels, and some other changes.
Now it’s your turn!
To learn how to build those Popups, download the demo files. Inspect the Popups on your own website inside the Visual Builder and adjust them to your needs.
How do the demo files work?
We’ve prepared a zip package with some Visual Builder export files. To use those samples, you need to extract the JSON-files and then import the layout into your Visual Builder.
Then click through all elements to examine the section- and module settings.
What demos are included?
The zip package contains the following demo files:
- File 1: A single, basic Popup with a Button trigger.
- File 2: All samples from this page ←
- File 3: JS API sample – see the code module contents.

Thank you for the help!!
I forgot to tell you … you’re the best! Have a good day
No Close Button
This Popup does not have a close button in the top right corner.
To close this Popup, either press the ESC key on your keyboard or click somewhere outside the Popup.
Take a look at the close button in the top right corner: It only displays an Icon (without the rectangle frame) and the icon is light, to match the dark background of this Popup.
For this Popup we set the Option “Close on Background-Click” to No.
This creates a so-called “modal” Popup that can only be closed via the ESC key on your keyboard or a Close Button that is displayed in the Popup.
Custom Close Button
This Popup is a modal Popup that has no built-in Close Button.
So we have added a custom Close Button below, that you can use to close the Popup. By the way: You can style that custom Close Button in any way you like!

Frequent questions. And answers.
Does Popups for Divi slow down my website?
The plugin is tuned for maximum page performance with no bloat, no external libraries, no ads.
In all tests we’ve conducted on various websites, we’ve seen absolute no performance impact at all. Give it a try yourself!
The details: The plugin adds a single line of CSS and a small JS snippet to your page source code. Additionally, a minified JS and a very basic CSS file is loaded on the first page visit. All files are loaded asynchronously, and are cached by the browser.
Trust us, your visitors will not notice anything.
Is it compatible with my caching plugin?
This plugin does not create any dynamic HTML content, as other popup plugins do. We’ve built this plugin for best performance. This means: Popups for Divi embraces every caching plugin you could throw at it!
Really, there is almost no PHP (“dynamic”) logic at all. The actual plugin is a static JS file, which runs on the user’s browser. It typically is stored in browser-cache and can even be served via a CDN.
What are the requirements for this plugin?
To use Popups for Divi without complications, you need at least
- WordPress 5.6
- Divi/Extra theme or the Divi Builder plugin v4.0
- jQuery 3.5.1 – i.e., the default version shipped with WordPress
Most likely, the plugin will also work with much older versions of Divi or WordPress. But let’s be serious; why would anyone want to use outdated software!?
Which themes are supported?
We’ve built (and test) Popups for Divi using the Divi theme, but we support all elegant themes products: You can use it with the Divi theme, the Extra theme, or a custom theme that uses the Divi Builder plugin.
It’s your choice.
Is it compatible with the Divi Builder plugin?
Yes, we frequently test Popups for Divi with the latest version of the Divi Builder plugin and a default WordPress theme.
Can I show a Popup on page load?
Here is a full list of all trigger options.
Can I use this plugin for exit-intent Popups?
Can I show Popups when the user clicks a button?
Here is a full list of all trigger options.
A shortcode/module/snippet is not showing up!
Popups for Divi can reliably display static content to your users.
Static means: The entire Popup content is available on page load and can be cached.
Dynamic content might be displayed correctly in some cases, but not reliably. If you want to use dynamic content inside Popups, please upgrade to Divi Areas Pro.
Rule-of-thumb: When you need to use the code module, you possibly insert dynamic content into the Popup.
Something isn't working. Can you help me?
Of course, we do our best to provide support for this plugin via the wordpress.org support forums.
Really, this plugin has a fantastic community, and we love to be in touch with you and see how you use this plugin to improve your Divi sites. 😄
But please keep in mind that this is a free plugin, and we cannot answer all requests instantly.
In case you need priority-support, you can always purchase a Divi Areas Pro license and make use of the Live Chat support.
