Operation refresh: Divi Mobile Website Edition

Every season, I give my website some nips, some tucks, and some much-needed adjustments to both the look and user experience.  Yes, it’s definitely one of the benefits of designing websites professionally and also because I happen to love redecorating my digital home.

Just a few of the benefits of giving your website a little spring cleaning:

  • That New Website Smell:  Changing up graphics, typefaces, and colors is a quick way to give your audience a new experience
  • Get Strategic:  Armed with your Google Analytics data, you can plan new user journies for website visitors and increase your conversions
  • Out With The Old:  Update your plug-ins and see what’s working on your website and what you’ve been begrudgingly using because you haven’t had time to fix it


I spruced up a few things around the ol’ digital domicile this month, but now I’m turning my attention to Creative Enabler’s mobile experience.

 

THat Divi mobile menu is ugly

 I have been putting off fixing up a few of my website’s design chores, but that Divi mobile menu has been getting under my skin since I first made the move to Divi (December of 2017, as it were).

My biggest issue is that it make a Divi website look like a Divi website that’s been barely customized from a pre-set template.  Youch.  That gray hamburger menu with the sad drop-down has got to go.

     

     

    I knew I wanted to simplify the look without going too artsy on the menu; After all, if someone is viewing my website on a mobile phone, I’m now competing with 53 other apps and their text messages for attention. 

    I also knew that I wanted to make the hamburger menu intuitive upon opening that the words were clickable.
