All Popup Options


This is a Popup

Turns the current Divi section into a Popup. When enabled, additional options become available.

Popup ID

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.

Close Button

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.

Button Color

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.


  • Dark
  • Light

Transparent Background

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.

Show Loader

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.


Disable on

Here you can disable the Popup on selected devices.


  • Phone
  • Tablet
  • Desktop

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.

Show Popup

Dark Background

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.

Show Popup

Modal Popup

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).

Show Popup

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.

Show Popup

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.

Show Popup

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.

"Amazing Support"

Thank you for the help!!
I forgot to tell you … you’re the best! Have a good day


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?

Yes, absolutely!

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.

However, some themes can include CSS or JavaScript that interferes with Popups for Divi. When this is the case, please head over to divimode.com/get-support and let us know about the problems, and we’ll help you get the plugin working on your website!

Can I show a Popup on page load?
Short: Yes, but it requires you to add some JS code. Long: Our free plugin comes without a “Show on page load” behavior; we believe that this is an advanced use-case, that can damage SEO score: Google often penalizes Popups that show up without user interaction (e.g., on page load). As that behavior can be dangerous, we’ve reserved it for our premium plugin (Divi Areas Pro), but offer a code-snippet for free users who really want to have that trigger.
Here is a full list of all trigger options.
Can I use this plugin for exit-intent Popups?
Yes. Exit-intent is one of the most powerful triggers to increase conversions, and it’s built into our free plugin, ready for you to use! All it takes, is to activate the behavior “Enable Exit Intent“.
Here is a full list of all trigger options.
Can I show Popups when the user clicks a button?
Yes. When you create a Popup, you need to give it a unique ID. You can use that Popup-ID to trigger the Popup via click from anywhere on the current page.
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.

Dynamic means: The content is shows user-specific details (like a cart), is loaded via Ajax, or is generated by JavaScript.

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.
