How to Customize a Button in Divi

Divi Builder, the editor of the Divi theme, comes with a Button module, allowing you to add a button element on the page you are working on. If you are new to Divi Builder, working with the Button module might is a bit confusing. In this post, we will show you how to customize a button in Divi Builder.

The customization options offered by the Button module are basically rich enough. You can, for instance, add a gradient background to your button without special tricks. The same option (at the time of writing), is not offered by Elementor.

Customizing a Button in Divi Builder

To get started, add a Button module by clicking the grey plus icon inside a row.

To set the button text size, you can simply slide the selector rightward to increase the size and leftward to decrease the size. Or you can simply type the exact size on the available field. To set the button text color, simply select the color you want on the Button Text Color section.

When adding a new button with the Button module in Divi Builder, your button will have an arrow icon by default, which will appear when you hover your mouse over the button. You can change this default icon by selecting your preferred icon on the Button Icon section. If you don’t use an icon on your button, you can disable the Show Button Icon option.

The Bottom Line

The Button module allows you to add a beautiful button when working with Divi Builder. Whether you are creating a page, creating a custom footer, or creating a custom header. There are a bunch of customization options offered by this module, like adding a gradient background or adding an icon to the button.

There are also some missed customization options, though. For instance, there is no option to set the hover background color.
