If you’re a Divi user and are interested in improving your web design skills, then this guide/ebook is for you. The Divi CSS and Child Theme Guide provides a guide to the CSS selectors used in the Divi theme framework.

One of the most common CSS-related queries we see in various online forums and in the Divi community groups is the targeting of the elements that make up Divi’s modules.

This guide covers:

  • What CSS is and why you should learn it
