In this tutorial, we’ll guide you through the steps to create an eye-catching section with a background image blur in the Divi theme. This technique can help make your website more visually appealing and engaging. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Create a New Page

1.1. Log in to your WordPress dashboard.

1.2. Navigate to “Pages” and click “Add New.”

1.3. Give your page a title and click on “Use Divi Builder” to begin building your page.

1.4. Select “Start Building.”

Step 2: Insert a Row with Two Columns

2.1. Inside the Divi Builder, click the “+ Add New Section” button.

2.2. Choose the option to insert a row with two columns.

Step 3: Add Content to the First Column

3.1. In the first column, insert a Text Module.

3.2. Optionally, you can add some text content to the module.

3.3. Go to the “Design” tab and set a background color for the text module (typically a dark color).

3.4. In the “Spacing” section, provide padding to adjust the space around the text.

3.5. Edit the text content, making use of an H1 tag for the title.

3.6. Change the text color to a light color under the “Design” tab.

Step 4: Add Content to the Second Column

4.1. In the second column, insert an Image Module.

4.2. Select the image you want to display and save changes.

Step 6: Apply Custom CSS for Background Image Blur

6.1. Go to the “Advanced” tab and select the “Custom CSS” section.

6.2. In the “Before” text box, write or paste the below CSS code. This code uses the before element to blur the background image and the backdrop filter CSS property to control the blur level. You can adjust the pixel value to control the blur intensity.

display:block;
background:rgba(0,0,0,.2);
position:absolute;
top:0;

bottom:0;

width:100%;
