How To Create A Content Previewing Tablet In Divi

Rifat Divi Tutorials Oct 6, 2021

Demo/ Preview items can be a successful marketing tactic if you use them on your website. It's is particularly useful when it comes to promoting digital products such as ebooks. You tease them with a taste of what's to come, so they'll be clamouring for more. In today's article, we'll teach you how to use Divi's scrollable tablet to display teaser material. Using Divi's built-in features, we'll turn a column into a scrollable container (intended to look like a tablet) that can hold any type of information. You can promote the first few chapters of any ebook designs from your portfolio or other content with this tool.

Come on, let's go for it!

Design Glimpse

Here you can see how a scrollable content previewing tablet will look like after we finish the design.

Design Segment Part 1: Container Structure

Create a new page from the dashboard and move ahead with Edit with Divi. Then select Build From Scratch and start building.

Row Adding

Let's start with a two-column row. Remember, we are creating this on the default section.

Settings: Column 1

Background Color

Then, go to Column 1's options and give it a white background.

  • Background Color: #ffffff

Border And Padding

Now, add some padding to the column and add a border on it.

  • Padding: 25px (top, bottom, left, right)
  • Rounded Corners: 20px
  • Border Width: 30px
  • Border Color: #000000

Box Shadow

To make this design a bit more detailed and depth, let's add a bow shadow to it.

  • Box Shadow: see screenshot
  • Box Shadow Horizontal Position: 5px
  • Box Shadow Vertical Position: 5px
  • Shadow Color: #555555

Custom Height & Width Using CSS

To make content browsable, set the column's height to a specific value. The content will now exceed the column's maximum size. We want to keep the tablet's aspect ratio stable, so setting a full width for the column makes sense. Go to the Advanced tab and make the following changes to the column's height and width:

Add the following custom CSS to the Desktop version on Main Element under the Custom CSS option.

height:650px;
max-width: 488px;

Now add the code to the mobile version.

max-height: 500px;
max-width: 375px;
float:none;
margin: 0 auto;

Vertical Overflow: Scroll

Content will eventually overflow due to the column's new set height. Set the visible vertical overflow option to "scroll" to ensure that the overflowing material may be observed by scrolling the column.

  • Vertical Overflow: Scroll

Design Segment Part 2: Add Content To The Tablet

Now we are going to add some content to the column or tablet. You can display anything inside made by Divi modules. Here we will be doing an Ebook showing where there will be some content, a cover image, and an action button created by the blurb module.

CTA Button With Image Background

We will add a blurb module to the tablet that will inform the visitor to scroll. Apart from the blurb icon and text, we will use a background image as a Cover preview.

Blurb Module Settings

Make the following adjustments to the blurb module.

  • Title: Scroll to Preview
  • Use Icon: YES
  • Icon: see screenshot
  • Background Gradient Left Color: transparent
  • Background Gradient Right Color: #ffffff
  • Start Position: 20%
  • End Position: 85%
  • Place Gradient Above Background Image: YES

Change the following settings from the design tab.

  • Icon Color: #000000
  • Icon Font Size: 80px (desktop and tablet), 70px (phone)
  • Title Font: Montserrat
  • Title Text Alignment: center
  • Title Text Color: #000000

We can adjust the blurb's height to match the column's height to fill the tablet. Because our column has a predetermined size, this height percentage works. Once we've added top padding, we'll be able to relocate the icon and title to the column's bottom.

To size and space the blurb, update the following:

  • Height: 100%
  • Margin: 25px bottom
  • Padding: 400px (desktop and tablet), 270px (phone)

Book Cover Image

The next item we are going to add is a cover image. Add an image module under the previous blurb module.

Use the same image used on the blurb module.

Text Content

The last item on the tablet we will add is some text content. Use text module for it.

Then add the following code to the body from the Text section.

From the design tab, update the following styles.

  • Heading 3 Font: Montserrat
  • Heading 3 Font Weight: Ultra Bold
  • Heading 3 Text Alignment: Center
  • Heading 3 Line Height: 1.3em
  • Padding: 10% (Top & Bottom)

Design Segment Part 3: Final Touch Up

Row Setting - Updated

Now that we have all the contents in place let's adjust row settings to make it more responsive.

  • Width: 100% (desktop), 90% (tablet and phone)
  • Max Width: 1080px (desktop), 488px (tablet and phone)

Column 2 Contents

So far, we have only done the work of column 1. Now we will add some content in column 2 to make our design more attractive and captivating. We will add text modules and button modules to make the design more natural.

Final Output

So, here is a beautiful content previewing tablet made by Divi.

Wrapping Up

The most significant benefit of this previewing module/tablet design is that we may use it in various situations. As a result, since the tablet is essentially a Divi column, the material you wish to feature may be designed using any number of Divi modules (text, image, button). If you need to offer preview/sneak peek content on your website in the future, hopefully, this will be useful.
