In this post, we’ll be showing you how you can easily create a simple yet elegant timeline with Divi’s your Blurb Modules. We’ll be combining the different options that modules and rows provide to achieve the result you can view below. The example we’ll be sharing is based on the built-in Divi options only, which means you won’t need to add any additional CSS code! We’re also making sure that it looks good on desktop as well as on mobile.

Result

The appearance of a timeline is achieved with two design elements; the line that crosses all three Blurb Modules and the numbers. The desktop version looks like this:

Add Another Three-Column Row (Blurb Modules)

Once you created the first three-column row, you can go ahead and create the second one right below it (they share the same section). Each one of the columns needs a gradient background with the same settings but with a different first color:

  • First Color: #e09900 (Column 1), #0c71c3 (Column 2), #8300e9 (Column 3)
  • Second Color: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0)

timeline

Lastly, use a top margin of ‘-100px’ and add ’50px’ to the top and bottom padding.

timeline

Clone Blurb & Text Module

Once you’ve completed the first column, you can clone both modules and place them in the other two columns. The only things you’ll have to change is the blurb icon, blurb color and the first gradient color of the Text Module into ‘#0c71c3’ for the second column and ‘#8300e9’ for the last column.

Disable on Tablet & Phone

Once you’ve completed this second row, make sure you disable it for phone and tablet as well.

The timeline version on tablet and phone is slightly different. Clone the row with blurbs you’ve created in the previous part of this post and follow the next steps to make it fit on phone and tablet.

The row on tablet and phone will need the following gradient background:

  • First Color: rgba(0,0,0,0.7)

  • Gradient Type: Linear
  • Gradient Direction: 90deg
