Advanced List Overview

Advanced List Module for Divi is the solution to create an SEO-friendly list in Divi. This module is featured-riched and multipurpose. Let’s see what feature this module can offer-

Global Content Tab

The content tab of the list module has child items which will be your list. You will find three prepopulated items there after the first initiation. You can add unlimited list items by clicking “Add New Item”.

Child Item

Divi child items also consist of three tabs. Let’s explore them one by one.

Content Tab Child Item


Here are the options for your content or list items. It consists of the following-

  • Title: Here is the text area for adding a title.
  • Body: You can add full-featured texts here under each title. This is a regular text area where you can add headings, links, images, etc.
  • Title Tag: Define your title HTML tag from the dropdown list. By default, it H4.
  • Show Tooltip: From here, you can turn ON the tooltip for the item.
  • Tooltip Content: After turning the tooltip ON, a new text area will appear for the tooltip text. This Text area has the same feature as the body text.


Here we have an icon option for the child item.
Icon type: For the child item, we have different types of icon selection options available. Depending on the icon type selection, some features may vary.

  • Icon: By default, this one is selected as an icon.
    • Choose an Icon: This will allow choosing an icon from the list.
  • Image: You can choose an image instead of an Icon.
    • Image Alt Text: Give a custom alt text for your image.
  • Text: You can also choose text instead of image or icon.
  • Lottie: Use the Lottie file as an icon from here. Selecting this as an icon type will show two new features related to Lottie.
    • Source type: Here, you need to define the Lottie file source. Either you can select an external URL or upload option.

Note: If you want to upload the Lottie file, which is a JSON file, you need to turn on the JSON file support extension. To Do so-Go to WordPress dashbroad> DiviFlash> Dashbroad> Extension> JSON file upload. Turn the toggle ON and Save.

  • None: If you don’t want to use an icon, select the none option.

Show Icon Only: If you don’t want to show any text, turn ON this feature. This one is available for the icon, image and Lottie.

Show Icon On Hover: Here you can select the icon or image to show on hover only by turning this feature ON.

Use Icon for Title: If you want to show a secondary icon just after the title, then turn this feature ON. This will allow you to select an icon from the icon list. You can also show this on hover only.

Lottie Settings

Lottie can be animated in four ways using the Animation Trigger. Choose None if you don’t want to trigger an animation.

  • Viewport: When you select the viewport trigger option, the Lottie animation begins as soon as it appears in the viewport. In addition, you can specify a threshold value between 0 and 1. In the case of 0.5, the animation will be activated when Lottie is 50% visible.
  • On Click: Click to initiate the Lottie animation.
  • On Hover: Hover over Lottie to trigger the animation.
  • On Scroll: Trigger the Lottie animation while scrolling.

Loop: Lottie files can be animated continuously when the Loop effect is activated. So you can create non-stop Lottie animations.

Animation Speed: The animation speed feature controls Lottie’s animation speed. Milliseconds are used to measure it.

Reverse direction: Lottie’s animation can be reversed using the Reverse Direction feature. You could make the Lottie animation run on the right if it starts on the left.

Renderer: The renderer feature can render Lottie files as SVG or Canvas.

Note: The tooltip setting is only available when the tooltip feature is ON.

Tooltip Settings

Here is the list of features to customize the tooltip.

Arrow: Add an arrow on the tooltip pointing to the list item.

Placement: Place the tooltip around the list item among 12 different positions, including the Top, Bottom, Left, and Right.

Animation: The tooltip can be revealed in any of the 6 animations- Fade, Scale, Rotate, Shift-away, shift-toward, and perspective.

Trigger: Set a trigger option from Hover, Click, or Hover & Click for tooltip interaction.

Hover Over Tooltip: Activating this feature brings two more options,

  • Tooltip Hover Area: Define the size of the invisible border area around the tooltip that hides the tooltip when the cursor move-out from that border.
  • Tooltip Content Hide Delay: Set a delay time to hide the tooltip while the cursor is moved away.

Follow Cursor: Force the Tooltip to follow the cursor movement.

Max Width: Define the maximum width of the tooltip.

Tooltip Distance: Place the arrow wherever you want on the tooltip fringe and set a suitable distance between the tooltip and the list item.
