How To Make A Full Height Divi Hero Section

This quick Divi Pro Tip will show you how to easily set your Divi hero section to be full height on desktop, tablet, and phone.

You can create a full height section two ways in Divi. In the past, the only method was with a simple CSS snippet, but now there is also a way to do this directly in the Divi Builder. This tutorial will show you both method in case you need one or the other depending ont he situation.

Make A Divi Section Full Height With The Sizing Settings

Go to any Divi Builder section settings to the Design tab. Go to the Sizing toggle and find Min Height setting. Set the min height value to “100vh” and save the change.

That was easy! Now your hero section will be the same height as any device that your website visitors are using, whether that be desktop, tablet, or phone. 

Make A Divi Section Full Height With CSS

The althernative option involes just one line of code which needs to be added to the section that you want to be full height.

Go to the section settings to the Advanced tab. Go to the Custom CSS toggle and find the Main Element. Copy and paste the following code snippet below into that input area.

Is it also possible to make a 100vh of 2 sections? I would like to use the header image and a nav-menu-bar underneath, to display this 100vh/fullscreen

This is great – thank you. My section has a margin of 20px (could be a white border) which is fine apart from the bottom margin. This always shows beneath the bottom of the screen. Would there be a way to show the bottom margin on the screen? Thanks 🙂

Hi Nelson, it’s a little hard to explain – apologies. I have attached a screenshot of the issue. The margin exists on all sides of the section, however it doesn’t show on screen at the bottom – you have to scroll down to see it. I would like it so the bottom margin shows on screen – so the page has a nice border effect on all sides. I hope that makes sense!

Hi Nelson, thanks for the tip! I have just one question: is there a way to dynamically subtract the header height to the 100vh so that the hero section considers the menu? I made a couple of different global headers for the website which differ in height and I’d like to use an hero section with video with both menus.
Thanks for any suggestion,
