Add CSS to Divi Using a Stylesheet

In our opinion, the best way to add CSS to the Divi theme is by using a child theme and a unique stylesheet.

The concept of a child theme and using in conjunction with your Divi website was covered in Part Two of this guide, but as a quick recap:

  • A child theme is a series of files that, when added together, form a ‘secondary theme’ to a parent theme,
  • Using a child theme in development is repeatedly recommended as best practice as it’ll safeguard your web design efforts,
  • A child theme can be made in various ways, such as using a plugin, the WP Zone Child Theme Builder or building one from scratch, as outlined in Part Two of this guide.

In our opinion, going this route – of creating a child theme and adding CSS styling to a stylesheet – is the best method for web development as it is extremely convenient having all code styling in one easy to locate place, and not spread across various spaces throughout the website’s pages and modules.

Another benefit of using a child theme and a stylesheet for CSS is that you have the ability to enqueue multiple stylesheets. This is particularly useful for large websites that have deep levels of customization in place.
