1 - What is a Divider Divi?
In web design, a divider is simply a separator. Don't think of a "one line" or "double line" divider , no, we're talking about a very graphic looking divider. Rather, we are talking about "shapes " that will separate two Divi sections of your layout (layout).
For this separation to have the desired effect, you will need to create your layout with several sections of different colours.
Moreover, the web design trends show that dividers are very popular and bring a bit of freshness to a web page, if they are used well.

2 - What separators are available?
When you see the image above, you will understand better this notion of "form of separation".
Note that a divider is only available within a Divi section. You will never find this option on a Divi Builder module for example.
And by default, the divider of a section is set to "None", i.e. no divider is displayed by default.
Discover this tutorial which explains how to get original dividers.
3 - How do I insert a divider into a page layout?
We will see in detail how to add a divider to separate 2 sections:

- 2 - Next, insert a text module for example.
- 3 - Open the settings (the gear icon) of the SECTION. Go to the Content > Backgroundtab
- 4 - Select a background colour
- 6 - Still within the parameters of the section
- 7 - Go to the STYLE tab
- 8 - Then to the DIVIDERS tab
- 9 - You can choose the position of the divider: at the top of the section or at the bottom.
- 10 - By default, the divider style is set to NONE. Click here to select another shape.
- 11 - When you select a divider, you can see it live. You may notice that the margin is a problem.
- 12 - If this is the case, don't forget to go to the STYLE > SPACE tab of the settings in the
- 13 - Add internal margin
- 14 - Enough margin for the content to show the divider cleanly.
- 15 - Repeat the operation several times within your layout. To save time, I even recommend that you create and set up a section correctly, then duplicate it to keep the same settings.
- 16 - On the sections you have duplicated, change the background colour of each of them.
