This is the second in a new series I am starting on turning your Divi Menu links into buttons and giving them some cool hover effects.

In this tutorial I am going to show you how you can make Divi Menu buttons with a background that slides down when you hover over it.

Let’s Get Started Making The Divi Menu Buttons that Slide Down


Adding The Custom CSS

If you are working with a child theme you can go to Appearance>Editor and open your stylesheet. If not, go to Appearance>Divi Theme Options>Custom CSS (which is located at the bottom of the first tab in Theme Options)

Add this CSS.

/*---------------[GQ - SLIDE DOWN]----------------*/

	#top-menu li {
		padding-right: 2px;}

	#top-menu > li > a {
		padding: 15px 15px!important;
		margin-bottom: 15px;}

	#top-menu .menu-item-has-children > a:first-child:after {

	#top-menu-nav > ul > li > a {
		background: #ececec;
		-webkit-transform: perspective(1px) translateZ(0);
		transform: perspective(1px) translateZ(0);
		-webkit-transition-property: color;
		transition-property: color;
		-webkit-transition-duration: 0.3s;
		transition-duration: 0.3s;}

	#top-menu-nav > ul > li > a:before {
		content: "";
		position: absolute;
		z-index: -1;
		top: 0;
		left: 0;
		right: 0;
		bottom: 0;
		background: #2098D1;
		-webkit-transform: scaleY(0);
		transform: scaleY(0);
		-webkit-transform-origin: 50% 0;
		transform-origin: 50% 0;
		-webkit-transition-property: transform;
		transition-property: transform;
		-webkit-transition-duration: 0.3s;
		transition-duration: 0.3s;
		-webkit-transition-timing-function: ease-out;
		transition-timing-function: ease-out;}

	#top-menu-nav > ul > li > a:hover, 
	#top-menu-nav > ul > li > a:focus, 
	#top-menu-nav > ul > li > a:active {
		color: #ffffff;}
	#top-menu-nav > ul > li > a:hover:before, 
	#top-menu-nav > ul > li > a:focus:before, 
	#top-menu-nav > ul > li > a:active:before {
		-webkit-transform: scaleY(1);
		transform: scaleY(1);}



Making Adjustments

Now because there are already so many menu padding options available in the Theme Customizer, there is a good chance you may have to adjust the bottom padding of the main buttons. You can change that here.

button slide down 1


The following rules change the background colors before and after hover and the font color on hover.

button slide down 2


The following rules change the timing of the animation.

button slide down 3


And that’s it.

If you used this on one of your projects, please share a link below so we can see how you used it.
