In summary

There are many ways to add custom CSS to the Divi theme, the trick is to find the method that feels the most comfortable and suits your Divi design habits the best.

As mentioned above, we recommend going the child theme add stylesheet route, even if it is a bit more tricky to manage in the beginning. If you decide to add CSS to the modules, pages or content areas as inline CSS, we recommend possibly keeping a note of this so that if and when you return to a website, you don’t spend hours trying to figure out where certain CSS is being served from.
