1. Create New Page Using Library Contact Page Layout
Add New Page
Start by adding a new page. Enter a page title, publish the page and enable the Divi Builder.
Upload Library Contact Page Layout
Navigate to the premade layouts and select the contact page layout in the Library Layout Pack.
2. Delete Current FAQ Section
Locate & Remove FAQ Section
Locate and remove the following section on the page that already contains a FAQ design:
3. Add New FAQ Section Design
Add New Regular Section
We can now start creating our new design that includes the interchanging sticky questions! To do that, insert a new regular section.
Add New Row
Continue by adding a new row using the following column structure:
Without adding any modules yet, open the row settings and allow the row to take up the entire width of the screen. A very important part of this step is enabling the ‘Equalize Column Heights’ option as well. This will automatically generate some space in column 1, based on the content that is placed in column 2. This space will be used to allow the sticky questions to move freely while scrolling up and down the page.
- Use Custom Gutter Width: Yes
- Gutter Width: 1
- Equalize Column Heights: Yes
- Width: 100%
- Max Width: 100%
Remove all default top and bottom row padding next.
- Top Padding: 0px
- Bottom Padding: 0px
Continue by opening the column 1 settings.
Default Background Color
Add a default background color.
- Background Color: rgba(224,216,200,0.15)
Hover Background Color
And change this background color on hover.
- Background Color: #FFFFFF
Open the second column’s settings next.
And apply some custom padding values across different screen sizes.
- Top Padding: 100px (Desktop), 50px (Tablet & Phone)
- Bottom Padding: 100px (Desktop), 50px (Tablet & Phone)
- Left Padding: 100px (Desktop), 50px (Tablet), 30px (Phone)
- Right Padding: 100px (Desktop), 50px (Tablet), 30px (Phone)
Add Text Module to Column 1
Add H3 Content
Time to start adding modules! The first and only module we need in column 1 is a Text Module containing one of the frequently asked questions. We’re using H3 for this.
Add a background color to the Text Module next.
- Background Color: #FFFFFF
H3 Text Settings
Move on to the design tab and change the H3 text settings accordingly:
- Heading 3 Font: Open Sans
- Heading 3 Font Weight: Bold
- Heading 3 Font Style: Uppercase
- Heading 3 Text Alignment: Center
- Heading 3 Text Size: 20px
- Heading 3 Letter Spacing: 1px
- Heading 3 Line Height: 1.5em
Ad some custom padding values as well.
- Top Padding: 20px
- Bottom Padding: 20px
- Left Padding: 20px
- Right Padding: 20px
Complete the settings by assigning a CSS class to the module. At the end of this tutorial, we’ll use this CSS class to make the module sticky.
- CSS Class: sticky
Add Text Module to Column 2
On to the second column. There, we’ll add a Text Module with some content of our choice.
Move on to the design tab and change the text settings accordingly:
- Text Font: Open Sans
- Text Line Height: 2em (Desktop & Tablet), 1.6em (Phone)
And some bottom margin to the module’s spacing settings too.
- Bottom Margin: 50px
Clone Text Module in Column 2 & Change Content
Clone the entire Text Module in column 2 and change the content.
Remove Bottom Margin
Remove the bottom margin as well.
Clone Entire Row as Many Times as Wanted
Once you’ve completed the first row and all its modules, you can clone the entire row up to as many times as you want; depending on how many frequently asked questions you want to show up on your page.
Change Questions & Answers
Of course, you’ll have to modify all the copy.
Change Column 1 Default Background Colors
Change the column 1 default background colors of each row duplicate as well. If you want it to match the Library Layout Pack, use the following color codes:
- Color 1: #f2ece1
- Color 2: rgba(0,0,0,0.2)
- Color 3: rgba(0,0,0,0.64)
- Color 4: #000000
Add New Row
The last part of this tutorial focuses on making the sticky effect work. For that, we’ll need a few lines of CSS code. Add a new row to the bottom of your section.
Add Code Module to Column
Insert Sticky Question CSS Code
Add a Code Module with the following lines of CSS code that’ll make the sticky effect work for each question Text Module:
Now that we’ve gone through all the steps, let’s take a final look at the outcome across different screen sizes.
