Divi Popup: How to create popup contact form without plugins (Update)

divi popup

Hello guys! Today I am going to show you how to create a Divi popup window without using any third-party plugins. You can add any type of content here. In my tutorial, I will show how to add a popup contact form that opens with a button click. You can add anything you want to the modal window, not only a contact form.

Divi Popup: How to create popup windows without plugins

Step One – Design the section in Divi

Let’s start by creating our design with a contact form. Here I am creating a new Section and giving it a class name of ‘modal-wrapper‘.

You have to make some changes here. For the Section Background use a transparent color. I am using rgba(22,24,56,0.61) value to give a dark shade. This section act as the background dimmer for the popup window.

Now add a new Row inside the section. I am using a single column row here with some customization. Give it a white background. Set 50px padding on all 4 sides for desktop, 30px for tablets and 20px for mobile in the Spacing Settings. Also, add a 10px border-radius on Border settings and a Box Shadow if you want the same design as mine. You can make adjustments to match your website’s current design. finally, give it an ID ‘modal-contact’ to this row. Below is what I did.

Ok, the Popup window is good now. But we need a ‘Close’ button to close the modal window. right?

Let’s create the close button

I am using a custom icon as the close button in my version. (If you like, you can use text instead of the icon. ) You can create a simple icon with Adobe Illustrator or download one from the internet. Try something from flaticon.com download the png file. Below is what I used from flaticon. You can save and use it if you want.

Once you found an icon upload png file to the media library of your website and copy the URL. Below is the HTML code for the button. Update the file URL and add this inside a Code Module just above the contact form. (this should be the top first item in the row.)

<a id="close-btn">
  <img src="https://demo.divispark.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/close.png">

Do not forget to update the image URL with yours.

Then we need to add the below CSS snippet to the site. You can use whatever method you like. If you need any help, read this to find out the best way to add custom CSS to your WordPress site.

  z-index: 99999;
  top: -30px;
  right: -30px;

@media all and (max-width: 767px) {
    top: -13px;
    right: -13px;

a#close-btn img {
  width: 30px;
  height: auto;

When properly positioning your close button inside the modal window, you can play with the ‘top’ and ‘right’ values.

Step Two: Let’s create the trigger button to open the Divi popup

We are going to use a button to trigger the popup window. So, when someone clicks on the button the popup will show and can close the popup window with the close button. That’s how it works.

I am adding a button module to the page here. (not inside the section we created for the modal. ;)).

Design the button the way you want and add the IDtrigger-btn‘ there.

Do not forget to add a ‘#’ in the link field in the button module. Otherwise, the page will reload when you click on the button. We just need to open the popup, not to reload. 🙂

Finally, Add the below CSS to the site. this will hide the whole section from the front end. If you want to change things please use the wireframe view instead of the visul builder.

Divi wireframe view
  position: fixed;
  width: 100%;
  height: 100%;
  top: 0;
  left: 0;
  z-index: 9999;

.modal-contact {
  position: fixed;
  z-index: 99999;
  left: 50%;
  top: 50%;
  transform: translateX(-50%) translateY(-50%);

Step Three: Let’s add the Jquery code

Let’s do the magic. Here we are going to use some jQuery. You can paste these codes on the Divi Theme Settings > Integration section. But as we are going to use this form only on one specific page I recommend you use the code module and put it at the bottom of the page.
On my version, I simply added a code module below the button and added the code. If you are adding somewhere else you may not need <script></script> tags.

jQuery(function($) { 
  $('#trigger-btn').click(function() { 
  $('#close-btn').click(function() { 

That’s how to create a Divi popup window in a simple way. This will work on all devices without any errors and will look perfect. If you have any questions or need any help do not hesitate to leave a comment below. I will leave a reply as soon as possible.

    TIA for any further information :)!!
    All the best,

    1. Hi Pierre, You can use different ID’s or Classes and copy the jQuery code. That way it will work without any problem.

  3. Thank you for this great tutorial.
    I got it to work, but after sending the message, the success message is displayed above the contact form, and a second (identical) contact form appears below it. Any idea how this could happen? Or, even better, how I could fix it, please?

  4. Hi Sampath! Nice tutorial! Thanks for sharing)
    But I cannot close the form from mobile. Maybe you know how to fix that?

  5. Great tutorial. I followed the steps and it is working like a charm. I have just one question: pop-up form appears on the top of the page (triggering the action, page scrolls to to top of page). Hw can i make it to pop up at the same place where the trigger button is?

  6. Hi! this works really well…except for mobile! could you add a section on how to modify the mobile fields? on mobile it shows as a long and narrow single column.


  7. Hi Sampath, thanks for sharing this. Could you give instructions on how to create a popup that appears immediately as the homepage loads (without a button click)? I have a friend who needs to put a COVID-19 update on their website, and they’d like it to be a popup that is seen immediately. Ideally, the popup would include a button that links to a page with more information. Thanks for any help you can provide, and I hope you are safe and well.

  8. Thank you! This is just what I was looking for.

    Just wanted to add that if your popup is larger than the screen (example a long form) you can add overflow:auto to the .modal-wrapper CSS.

  9. Thanks for this tutorial. It works fine but I have the same question as Damir:
    the pop-up form appears on the top of the page (triggering the action, page scrolls to to top of page). How can i make it to pop up at the actual scroll position instead of scrolling up?

  10. I have a problem with the popup. If i have 3 exact buttons on the page then only the first triggers the popup other 2 wont do a thing. Any way to fix that? Thanks
