1. Create Section Design

Start by adding a new section to the page you’re working on. Open that section’s settings and apply a gradient background:

Background Image

Upload a background image next. You can find the one we’re using throughout this tutorial in the download folder that you can find at the beginning of this post. You can use the background image for free and without any restrictions.

Remove the section’s default bottom padding by adding “0px”.

Continue by adding the first row to the section using the following column structure:

Background Color

Without adding modules yet, open the row settings and change the background color.

We’re changing the row overflows to visible too. This will make sure that everything that surpasses the row container won’t be hidden.

Column 1 Settings

Then, open the column 1 settings and add some custom top and bottom padding.

Moving on, we’ll add a gradient background to column 2.

Transform Scale

And we’ll increase the column’s size in the transform settings by applying the following transform scale values:

Add Text Module to Column 1

Add H3 Content

Time to add modules, starting with a Text Module in column 1. Enter some H3 content of your choice.

H3 Text Settings

Move on to the module’s design tab and change the H3 text settings accordingly:

Add Divider Module to Column 1

Complete the module settings by including some rounded corners in the border settings.

Add Text Module to Column 2

Add Content

In column 2, the only module we need is a Text Module with some description content.

Text Settings

Move on to the module’s design tab and change the text settings as follows:

Complete the module settings by adding some custom padding values.

Clone Entire Row as Many Times as Needed

Once you’ve completed the first row, you can clone it up to as many times as you want, depending on how much info you want to share about your first step.

Change All Copy

Make sure you change all copy in duplicate rows.

2. Add Step Row Bar to Bottom of Section

Add New Row

Now that we have all the explanatory rows in place, we can add our sticky step row bar. Add a new row using the following column structure:

Gradient Background

Open the row settings and use a gradient background.

Then, go to the border settings and add some rounded corners.

Box Shadow

Apply the following box shadow too:

Then, navigate to the advanced tab and set the overflows to visible.

Column 2 Spacing

Next, open the column 2 settings and use some custom top and bottom padding.

Column 3 Spacing

We’re adding some custom top and bottom padding to column 3 as well.

Add Text Module to Column 1

Add Content

Time to add modules to our sticky step row bar. Add a Text Module to column 1 and mention the step in the content box.

Gradient Background

Next, apply a gradient background.

Text Settings

Move on to the module’s design tab and style the text accordingly:

Add some rounded corners to the border settings next.

We’re also using a subtle box shadow.

Transform Translate

And we’ll complete the module settings by slightly repositioning the module using Divi’s transform translate settings.

Add Text Module to Column 2

Add H2 Content

In column 2, we’re adding a Text Module with some H2 content describing the step we’re at.

H2 Text Settings

Move on to the module’s design tab and style the H2 text settings as follows:

Add some custom top and bottom padding too.

Add Text Module to Column 3

Add Content

On to the next and last column. Add a Text Module with some description content.

Text Settings

Move on to the module’s design tab and change the text settings accordingly:

3. Apply Sticky Effects to Step Row Bar

Sticky Row Settings

Now that our sticky step row bar design has been completed, it’s time to make it stick to the bottom. Open the row settings, go to the advanced tab and apply the following sticky position settings:

Sticky Row Filter

In a default state, we don’t want the row bar to be visible. Once it’s turned sticky, however, we want it to appear. To make that happen, we’ll modify the opacity filter in the filters settings:

4. Reuse Entire Section for Next Steps

Clone Section as Many Times as Needed

Now that our first section, which is dedicated to step #1, has been created, we can reuse the entire section based on the number of steps we have.

Change All Copy in Duplicate Sections

Make sure you change all copy in the duplicate sections. That’s it!
