Rifat Divi Tutorials Oct 15, 2021

Divi Builder's built-in options can be used to create all the beautiful designs. Sticky options and scroll effects are two of those awesome built-in features of Divi, and by harmonizing these together, we can execute some very nice designs. In today's tutorial, we will see how to easily design a page by merging sticky options and scroll effects, which will undoubtedly take the visitors' browsing experience one step further. We will design a page section where an image will float in from the left, and before that, a text will be slide in from the right side. It may sound complex but before we jump right into our tutorial, check the design sneak peek.
