Creating Divi Blurbs with Advanced Flip Box: Part 1

In this blog post, we’re going to discuss about Advanced Flip Box module’s layout 1 and its features. Plus, we will also create some awesome Divi flip boxes using the same Divi blurb layout of this new module of Divi Blurb Extended plugin.

Advanced Flip Box: Layout 1 and its all features

In the last post, we discussed that layout 1 of Advanced Flip Box module allows user to create stylish Divi flip boxes that can animate in four directions: Top, Bottom, Left, and Right. In addition to the flip directions, user can also customize the background with color, image or gradient. Just like the below Divi blurb examples.

Similarly, we will create awesome blurb boxes in this blog post using every option. So, you can use new Advanced Flip Box module effectively while creating your own blurb boxes.

Step 1: Some requirements

Before you start making blurb boxes, make sure you’ve updated the Divi Blurb Extended plugin and Divi theme. In most cases, this new module will work in earlier version of Divi theme. But for best practices, try to update your Divi theme to Divi 4.0.

Step 2:

Select your page where you want to create blurb boxes. And go to the Front End builder for engaging user experience while creating blurb boxes using Advanced Flip Box module.

Step 3:

First, insert a regular section, then choose row with 3 columns. After adding the row section, you’ll get insert module pop up. And from this setting, add Advanced Flip Box module, you’ll get it in 2nd column of 1st row of Divi module settings.

After adding the new Advanced Flip Box module, we will get Advanced Flip Box settings.

Step 4: More on Advanced Flip Box settings

Select Layout: layout 1

Flip Direction: Top

Keep 3D Depth Effect as “Yes” for 3D visual representation of the Divi flip box. And for Brandishing our blurb box we can check “Shake on flip” to Yes but in this case leave it untouched. This option helps Flip Box swing back and forth after the flip.

Flip Speed: The speed limit for flipping a blurb box is unto 10000 ms. In our case, we will set it 800 ms. And make sure you’ve not checked the “Shake on Flip” option.

Flip Box Content

Here, we have two options. One for Front content and one for Back Content. Give your Flip Box Front title and Content (if needed).

In Back content settings, we get extra customization. Just like the blog editor.

Flip Box Element Settings

Again we get two options. For both Front and Back side of the Flip Box.

Here we can choose either Icon or Image. Check “Use Icon on Front” option. Same for the Back Elements settings.

In Back Elements settings, check on Display Button on Back and fill up the required details.

Set Button Icon Placement “Right” and Alignment “Left.”

Button Margin Left = -1em 

Step 7: Front Box Style

Front Content Alignment = Center

Front Rounded Corners = 10px for Top Left, Right and Bottom Right Corners.  And 62px for Bottom left corner.

Front Border Styles = Front Border Width with 26px

Border Color = Transparent

Border Style = Solid

Box Shadow = Choose 2nd option

Step 8: Front Box Style

Back Content Alignment = Center

Back Rounded Corners = 10px for Top Left, Right and Bottom Right Corners.  And 62px for Bottom left corner.

Step 9: Sizing and final touch

Content width = 550px

Min Height = 290px

Width = 102%

Max Width = 124%

Now, after following all these steps. Go to Row section settings. And in Design menu, select sizing. Check ” Use Custom Gutter Width” as “Yes”. In addition to this step, check “Equalize Column Heights” as “Yes”, too.
