The full-screen card module on Divi facilitates the integration of personalized Google Maps everywhere on your page. You can even add unlimited pins to the map and set a custom starting location. Modules maps are in Normal Width format as well, so be sure to check that out too!
Full-screen card module: Google Maps API key
Next, you will be asked to name your project. You can name the project whatever you want. In this example, I just named it “Cards”. You can also enter your website domain name (add an * before it if you are allowing access from www.domain.com and domain.com) to make sure your API key is authorized.
After you’ve created a named project, you’ll see an API key that you can use.
After obtaining an API key, you must copy/paste it in the theme options panel by going to Divi >> Theme options >> General settings >> Google Maps API key
How to add the Divi full-screen card module
Before you can add a full-screen card module to your page, you must first jump into Divi Builder. Once the Divi theme is installed on your website, you will notice a Use Divi Builder button above the post editor every time you create a new page. Click on this button to activate Divi Builder and access all the Divi Builder modules. Then click on the Use Visual Builder button to launch the builder in visual mode. You can also click the Activate Visual Builder button when browsing your foreground website if you are logged into your WordPress dashboard.
Once you have entered Visual Builder, you can click the gray plus button to add a new module to your page. New fullwidth modules can only be added inside fullwidth sections.
If you are starting a new page, don’t forget to add a fullwidth section to your page first.
Locate the full-width card module in the list of modules and click on it to add it to your page. The list of modules is searchable, which means you can also type the word “full-screen map” and then click enter to automatically find and add the full-width card module! Once the module is added, you will be greeted by the module options list. These options are separated into three main groups: Content, Design, and Advanced.
Use case example: Add a full-width card module to a contact page
A full-width card module is a great way to showcase your business location on your contact page. And the ability to add multiple pins to your map to showcase different locations and company information is a useful and attractive feature.
For this example, I’m going to add a full-width map module to showcase location and company information by adding a custom pin to the map.
Important: Make sure that a valid Google API key has been entered in the Options panel of the Divi theme. The card module will not work without it.
Using Visual Builder, add a Fullwidth section at the bottom of the contact page. Then insert the Fullwidth Map module into your new section. In the Content tab of the full-width map settings, enter your company address under the Map center address option. The map center address is the center point of the map.
Then click + Add a new item to create your first pin. Update the following:
That’s all. You now have a full-width dynamic map module at the bottom of the contact page with a clickable pin that displays company information.
Full-width card module content options
In the content tab, you will find all the content elements of the module, such as text, images, and icons. Everything that controls what appears in your module will always be found in this tab.
Google API key
The Maps module uses the Google Maps API and requires a valid Google API key to work. Before using the Map module, make sure you have added your API key in the Options panel of the Divi theme.
Map center address
Enter an address for the center point of the map, and the address will be geocoded and displayed on the map below. This is useful if you have multiple pins and want the map to be magnified in a specific and more precise location. You can simply type an address in a standard format.
This will change the module label in the constructor for easy identification. When you use the WireFrame view in Visual Builder, these labels appear in the module block of the Divi Builder interface.
Full-width card design options
In the Design tab, you will find all the styling options for the module, such as fonts, colors, sizing, and spacing. This is the tab that you will use to change the appearance of your module. Each Divi module has a long list of design settings that you can use to change anything.
Zoom Mouse Wheel
Here you can choose whether the zoom level will be controlled by the mouse wheel or not. Often it is best to turn this option off so that visitors are not disturbed as they scroll down the page and stuck the mouse wheel in the map iframe. This is especially true for full-width card modules.
Here you can choose whether the map can be moved on mobile devices.
Use the grayscale filter
Enabling this option will turn your map into a grayscale image.
On the advanced tab, you’ll find options that more experienced web designers might find useful, such as custom CSS and HTML attributes. Here you can apply custom CSS to any of the module’s many elements. You can also apply custom CSS classes and IDs to the module, which can be used to customize the module in your child theme’s style.css file.
Enter an optional CSS ID to use for this module. An ID can be used to create a custom CSS style or to link to particular sections of your page.
Enter the optional CSS classes to use for this module. A CSS class can be used to create custom CSS styling. You can add multiple classes, separated by a space. These classes can be used in your Divi child theme or in the custom CSS style sheet that you add to your page or website using the Divi theme options or the settings on the Divi Builder page.
Custom CSS can also be applied to the module and any of the module’s internals. In the Custom CSS section, you will find a text field where you can add custom CSS style sheets directly to each element. CSS entries in these settings are already wrapped in style tags. So just enter the CSS rules separated by semicolons.
This option allows you to control the devices on which your module appears. You can choose to deactivate your module on tablets, smartphones, or desktops individually. This is useful if you want to use different mods on different devices, or if you want to simplify the mobile design by eliminating certain elements from the page.
