How to Stack Rows on Scroll with Divi’s Sticky Options

How to Stack Rows on Scroll with Divi’s Sticky Options

Ever since Divi’s sticky options have come out, we’ve shown you ways on how to use the different features throughout your website builds, particularly inside headers. But there are a ton of ways you can use the sticky options to enhance the user experience people have on your website and make your website shine. In today’s tutorial, for example, we’ll show you how to stack rows on scroll with Divi’s sticky options. As soon as a row touches the top of your viewport, it’ll start going below the next row, which gives a stacking effect that looks beautiful. We’ll recreate the design from scratch and you’ll be able to download the section’s JSON file for free as well!

Let’s get to it.

In the first part of this tutorial, we’ll start laying down the foundation of our first row.

    • Desktop: 100px
    • Tablet: 40px
    • Phone: 25px
  • Bottom Padding:
