Divi’s Full-Width Menu module allows you to place a navigation menu anywhere on the page. This could be used to add a second-page menu to the page, or it could be used in conjunction with the Blank Page feature to move your main navigation to the bottom of the page. For example, you can move your menu below your first section to accommodate people with a large startup image. This allows your header navigation to move around the page using the builder!
How to add a full-width navigation module to your page
Before you can add a full-width navigation 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.
