Step 5: Creating CSS Grid Layout

Now that our modules are in place, we are ready to create our CSS Grid for those modules.
After creating modules and then we need to start designing the Row. Under the Row Settings tab, define the background color, gutter, width, and max-width. Also, in the Content tab change the background color, border radius, and box shadow.

Background:

background gradient color:
  1. First color: rgba(106,36,177,0.7);
  2. Second color: rgba(152,82,193,0.7);
  3. gradient type: Linear;

Sizing

  1. gutter: 1;
  2. width: 80%;
  3. max-width: 1200px;

spacing:

  1. padding-top: 50px;
  2. padding-bottom: 50px;
  3. padding-left: 50px;
  4. padding-right: 50px;

Box-shadow

  1. box-shadow: 0px 2px 18px 0px;
  2. shadow color: rgb(255 255 255 / 40%);

Step 6. Adding Custom Code to create a grid layout

This is the most important step to create a custom grid layout. Now we are going to add custom code by using the CSS grid property. Under Row Settings, go to the child item named “column”.

Open the column settings and under the advanced tab, enter the following four lines of custom CSS code in the main element field of custom CSS

This code will create a five-column grid with equal widths and 10px of space between each column.

  1. display: grid;
  2. grid-template-columns: repeat(5, 1fr);
  3. grid-template-rows: auto;
  4. grid-gap: 10px;

Step 7: Making Changes to the Grid Modules

Now, You need to write custom code in each module separately to create the design layout you want. For your ease of understanding, Don’t worry Divigrid lovers, we have given the code with the image of how to write custom code to design.

To change the position of a module (or grid item) in the CSS grid, we can specify where we want to place a particular module in the grid. Since grid items work by enumerating grid lines, we can determine the position of grid items by using grid column start, grid column end, grid row start, and grid row end.

For where each of your columns will start and end, write the grid-column-starts and grid-column-ends CSS in the main element field of the module’s custom code.
Similarly, rows will also need grid-row-starts and grid-row-ends.

Custom CSS for First module (Unleashing Inovation):

Open the settings for the first module ( Unleashing Inovation ) and write the following custom CSS to the main element:

  1. grid-column-start: 1;
  2. grid-column-end: 3;
  3. grid-row-start: 1;
  4. grid-row-end: 3;

  1. grid-row-start: auto;
  2. grid-row-end: auto;
  3. grid-column-start: auto;
  4. grid-column-end: auto;

Custom CSS for 3rd module(Safe):

  1. grid-row-start: auto;
  2. grid-row-end: auto;
