Want to display video, images, and more in a lightbox on your Divi theme website? And finding it hard to achieve? Then, in this article, we’re going to see how we can create Divi lightbox for videos, images, text, and more using Divi Plus Modal.

Things required

To start creating a lightbox for video and other media in Divi, we need Divi Modal. For that, we need to purchase Divi Plus, which we can do from here.

Once purchased, download the plugin, then install and activate it.

After activating the plugin, make sure that Modal is active in the Divi Plus panel. Settings > Divi Plus on your WordPress dashboard.

Layout used

In this tutorial, I have used the Divi’s premade Cyber Security layout to create the above modal. If you want the same design and style, you can also use that.

Insert Divi Modal on the page

After successfully activating the plugin and Modal, it’s time to create Divi lightbox.

To do that, first, create a page or edit an existing one, where you want to show video in the modal. Then, load the Divi page builder and insert the DP Modal.

Modal content customization for Divi lightbox

After inserting the module on the page, you get the content setting window for customizing the video lightbox. It combines many options that can help you to make your video modal window’s content promising. The following are the options available in the content tab.

Configure Modal Trigger

As soon as you add the module to the page, you get the following Divi modal window. It allows you to customize the modal’s content and what you want to display on it and what’s not.

Modal Footer

Using this setting of the Divi Plus Modal, you’d be able to choose whether or not your video lightbox would display footer. Plus, you can also use this setting to input text for the close button.

However, for this tutorial, we will keep the modal footer option disable. So, if you’re following this tutorial, then don’t forget to check Show Footer as “No.”


Here, you’d be able to customize the background style of modal’s elements. It’s a complete settings panel for each and every element of the modal for background customization. Apply changes as follows,

Divi modal background settings

Trigger Element Background: None

Modal Background: 

Gradient 1: #47D7FF

Gradient 2: #0F61E2

Type: Radial

Radial Direction: Top Right, and leave other settings as they are.

Modal Header Background: None

Body Background: None

Modal Footer Background: None

Modal design customization for Divi lightbox

Using the Content tab of the Divi Plus Modal, we’ve customized the content of our Divi video lightbox. Now, using the option available in its Design tab, we’re going to make it look attractive and engaging. The options available in the Design tab for creating impressive video popup for Divi are,


This first setting of Modal’s Design tab allows you to make changes in the trigger element’s placement location. Using this setting, you’d be able to place your trigger element on the left, right, and center.

Modal trigger alignment

Trigger Icon

Using this particular setting, you can make changes in the size and color of the Divi lightbox trigger element.

Trigger Icon Font Size: 100px

Trigger Icon Color: #FFFFFF

Modal Title Text

It allows you to customize the appearance of modal title. This Divi modal setting provides you with all the necessary parameters to make a text look more engaging and attractive.

Modal Title Heading Level: H2 (This is best practice. Whenever, you create a Divi pop up keep heading level H2.)

Title Font: Acme

Font Weight: Bold

Title Alignment: See screenshot

Title Font Color: #FFFFFF

Box Shadow

In addition to the title text setting, the Box Shadow setting of the module provides you with the option to add a box-shadow on each modal element. However, for this tutorial, we’re only going to add a shadow on the modal. Therefore, keep other elements’ box-shadow unchecked, and for modal, look in the screenshot.


Just like the Box Shadow setting, this setting of Divi Modal allows you to add and customize the border of the trigger element and pop up modal.

Modal Rounded Corners: 10px for each corner.

Modal Sizing and Alignment

Using Modal Sizing and Alignment, you can make changes in the position of the popup Divi modal. Plus, it also provides you with the option to make changes in the modal width and height.

Keep Modal Alignment & Sizing as default.


Here, you’d be able to make changes in the margin and padding of the module and its elements as well as module too. Keep spacing as default.

Once these settings applied on the modal, it will appear like the below image.


This setting would allow you to add animation on the entrance of Divi pop up for video in the modal. Apply customization as follows,

Modal Animation Style: Fade

Animation Duration: 1100ms

Modal Animation Starting Opacity: Default 0%

Modal Animation Speed Curve: Ease-In-Out

CSS used for pulse animation

Following the above steps, we have almost created the lightbox layout shown in this blog post. However, to add pulse animation, we need to add a custom CSS. For that, go to the module’s Advanced tab and add el-icon as CSS Class.

Divi modal pulse animation class name


After giving the class name to the module, go to the Advanced tab of the Section Settings and input CSS Class as modal-example-1.

Once added class name for the section, finally, go to the Advanced tab of Page Settings and add pulse animation custom CSS in the same manner shown in the below screenshot.

Add below custom CSS in the above setting appropriately.
