Divi Tutorial – The Final Countdown

May 15, 2016

After seeing Andy Tran’s article on The Best Hidden Feature of Divi, I decided I’d try and build something using inline JS, HTML & CSS  to test Divi’s code module out. I really hadn’t used the code module at all and it didn’t even occur to me that I could inline CSS and JS using <style> & <script> tags.

This is pretty exciting because when you couple the code module with Divi’s portability function, developers & designers can create some really wonderful stuff without being limited to Divi’s built-in modules.

I decided to build a coming soon page with a countdown timer. I adapted this Codepen from Chris Johnson.

You can download a Divi import file here:

Here’s a look at what the finished product looks like. You can also see it used on a full page here:

Something wonderful is coming soon

  • 00
    Days
  • 00
    Hours
  • 00
    Minutes
  • 00
    Seconds

OK! On to the tutorial.

Step 1

Create a new page and in “Page Attributes” change the “Template” to “Blank Page”.

Step 2

Import the layout file using Divi’s portability function found on the top of the page (the up & down arrow icon)

Step 3

Change the date that you want to count down from in the module marked “Set Date Here.”

Step 4

That’s it! I’d love to hear about any successes or failures you have with this. Email me at hello@yatesdesign.com.au.
