Let’s get started.

Let’s get to the tutorial shall we?

Getting Started

To get started, you will need to do the following:

  • If you haven’t yet, install and activate the Divi Theme installed (or the Divi Builder Plugin if not using the Divi Theme).
  • Install and activate the WooCommerce plugin. If it is the first time setting up WooCommerce, you will need to run through the basic setup wizard to get your store ready. Once done, you are ready to add your new products.
  • Create a new product as directed below. For more info on how to add a new product, check out this tutorial.
  • Setting up the Example Product

    To set up the example product for this tutorial, navigate to Products > Add New. Give the product the title, “Massage (single session)”, and click to use the Divi Builder.

    Next, update the following Product page settings and product information:

    1. Under Divi Page Settings, select the No Sidebar Page layout.

    2. Add/select a Product Category

    3. Add the Product Image

    4. Add the following product long description content:

    <h3>Quality Massage</h3>
    
    Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Vestibulum sagittis orci ac odio dictum tincidunt. Donec ut metus leo. Class aptent taciti sociosqu ad litora torquent per conubia nostra, per inceptos himenaeos.
    
    <ul>
     	<li>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.</li>
     	<li>Vestibulum sagittis orci ac odio dictum tincidunt.</li>
     	<li>Donec ut metus leo.</li>
    </ul>
    
    <h3>Our Guarantee</h3>
    
    Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Vestibulum sagittis orci ac odio dictum tincidunt. Donec ut metus leo. Class aptent taciti sociosqu ad litora torquent per conubia nostra, per inceptos himenaeos.
    

    5. Under the Product Data, change the product type to Variable Product.

    6. Add an Attribute named “Type” with the following Values: Swedish | Hot stone | Aromatherapy | Deep tissue. Make sure to select “Used for variations”.

    7. Then in the variations tab under the product data toggle, use the dropdown input to create variations from all attributes.

    10. After you are finished, save or publish the product.

    Now you are ready to start designing your layout with a custom product info Accordion.

    Creating the Product Info Accordion with Dynamic Content in Divi

    The default product layout displays product info using various Woo Modules throughout. For this example, we want to use the accordion to display three main pieces of product info: product description, product additional information, and product reviews. All three of these pieces of content are currently being displayed inside the woo tabs module. All we need to do is delete the woo tabs module and replace it with an accordion module with the same info pulled in via dynamic content.

    Here’s how to do it.

    First, click to use Divi on the front end to deploy the visual builder. Then delete the Woo Tabs Module.

    divi product info accordion

    Then add a new Accordion Module to replace the tabs.

    divi product info accordion

    In the Accordion Settings popup, click the gear icon on the first accordion open the individual accordion settings.

    divi product info accordion

    Enter the title, “About the Product”.

    Then hover over the body content input box and click the dynamic content icon.

    divi product info accordion

    Select “Product Description” from the list of dynamic content.

    This will pull in the product long description we have set for the product on the backend.

    After you have the first accordion content in place, open the settings for the second accordion and update the following:

    • Title: Specifications

    Then add the “Product Additional Information” dynamic content to the body.

    divi product info accordion

    After the second accordion content is ready, add a new accordion item and update the settings for that accordion as follows:

    • Title: Reviews

    Then add the “Product Reviews” dynamic content to the body to pull in the product review element/content.

    NOTE: Make sure you have added at least one review to the product in order to see the content on the live page.

    Designing the Product Info Accordion and Content with Divi

    Now that our product info accordion has the dynamic content needed to display the product information, we are ready to style the accordion using the built-in accordion module settings.

    Open the Accordion Module settings, and update the following:

    • Icon Color: #ff9375
    • Use Icon Font Size: YES
    • Icon Font Size: 26px

    divi product info accordion

    • Closed Toggle Background Color: #ffffff
    • Open Title Text Color: #ff9375
    • Title Text Color: #222222
    • Title Font: Lato
    • Title Font Weight: Bold
    • Title Font Style: TT
    • Title Text Size: 20px
    • Title Letter Spacing: 0.2em
    • Title Line Height: 2em

    divi product info accordion

    • Body Font: Lato
    • Body Text Size: 16px
    • Body Line Height: 1.8em

    divi product info accordion

    • Link Text Color: #ff9375

    This will target any links you have inside the dynamic content for each accordion included things like the review star rating.

    divi product info accordion

    • Unordered list text color: #ff9375
    • Unordered List Style Type: Circle
    • Unordered List Item Indent: 5%

    divi product info accordion

    • Border Width: 0px
    • Top Border Width: 1px
    • Top Border Color: #222222

    divi product info accordion

    And for one final step, let’s add a small snippet of css to take out the default margin between the accordion toggles.

    Under the advanced tab, add the following CSS to the Toggle element:

    margin-bottom: 0px;
    

    Now let’s check out the final design of the product info accordion.

    Final Adjustments to the Layout

    There are a few adjustments that we can make to the layout to match the design of the accordion. For example, we can adjust the font for each of the modules to Lato, add a custom border and border radius around the variable dropdown, and update the add to cart button with a solid background color to match.

    Once done, here is the final result.

    I’ve included this layout design as a free download above. Feel free to check it out for yourself. Bear in mind that you must have the product setup as described in this tutorial to see the same results.

    NOTE: The default color for many of the WooCommerce elements for a product in Divi is inherited from the secondary color value from the Theme Customizer Settings. It might be easier to update this secondary color once instead of updating the colors per woo module.

    Final Thoughts

    As we’ve learned, Woo Modules are not the only elements that can be used to pull in dynamic product info. The product info accordion is a great example of how you can use any Divi module to display product info in a unique and concise way. Feel free to explore new and exciting accordion designs for your product pages. And, of course, you can use multiple toggle modules instead of an accordion to achieve similar results.

    I look forward to hearing from you in the comments.

    Cheers!
