Prevent Flash of Divi Header in Learndash Focus Mode


Learndash has a focus mode which provides students with a distraction-free page layout. Learndash implements this by hiding other elements on the page, once the page has loaded. However, the Divi Theme Builder header will typically start to display before the page has fully loaded, and can flash up briefly while focus mode loads. Here's how to prevent it.

Hide the Header on Focus Mode using CSS

Using CSS, we can hide the header sooner when focus mode is active, preventing it from flashing up while focus mode loads. Here's the CSS:

.ld-focus .et-l--header {
    display: none !important;
I recommend placing this in the "Divi > Theme Options > General > Custom CSS" box, as CSS added there is, by default, loaded before any part of the page starts to display. Some other places, such as the per-page Custom CSS box load later and may not be early enough to prevent the header from flashing up.
