1 - What is a Divider Divi?

In web design, a Divider is simply a separator. Don't think of a separator like "one line" or "double line", no, we're talking about a separator with a very graphic look. They are rather "shapes" or "shapes" that will separate two Divi sections of your layout (layout).

In order for this separation to have the desired effect, you will need to create your layout with several sections of different colors.

In fact, the webdesign trends show that dividers are very popular and bring a little freshness to a web page, if they are well used.

2 - Which separators are available?

By seeing the image above, you better understand 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 separator is displayed by default.

3 - How to insert a divider within a layout?

We will see in detail how to add a divider to separate 2 sections:

étape 1
  • 1 - In a new page (or in an existing page), insert a new section and then a new row (line).
  • 2 - Then insert a text module for example.
  • 3 - Open the parameters (the gearwheel icon) of the SECTION. Go to the Content tab > Background
  • 4 - Select a background color
étape 2
  • 6 - Still within the parameters of the section
  • 7 - Go to the STYLE tab
  • 8 - Then to the MISCELLANEOUS tab
  • 9 - You can choose the position of the divider: at the top of the section or at the bottom of it.
  • 10 - By default, the divisor style is set to NONE. Click here to select another shape.
  • 11 - When you select a divisor, you can see it live. You may notice that the margin is a concern.
  • 12 - If this is the case, do not forget to go to the STYLE tab > SPACEMENT of the section settings
  • 13 - Add internal margin
  • 14 - Enough margin for the content to show the divider properly.
étape 3
  • 15 - Repeat the operation several times within your layout. To save time, I even advise you to create and configure a section correctly, then duplicate it to keep the same settings.
  • 16 - On the sections you have duplicated, change the background color of each one.
étape 4

Here is the final rendering:

    Je n’ai plus l’option divider que j’utilisais énormément sur un site. J’ai purgé mes caches mais rien n’y fait !!
    Auriez-vous une idée ?

    Merci beaucoup

    Salut Vanessa,
    Normalement les Dividers fonctionnent sans problème. Par contre, ils sont disponibles uniquement sur les SECTIONS, comme je l’explique dans cet article. Donc si tu cherches l’option au sein d’un module, tu ne la trouveras pas. C’est peut-être pour ça que tu ne les trouves pas ? Sinon, ton thème est bien à jour ?

  3. autourdevanessa

    Merci c’était mon thème qui n’était pas à jour.

    Merci pour ton retour 😉
