Step by Step | Use Divi Visual Builder to Adjust Padding & Margins for an Optimal Layout

Step 1: Understanding Padding and Margins

  • Padding is the space inside the container, providing spacing between the content (like text or images) inside that container and its edges.
  • Margins are the space outside the container, creating distance between the container and other elements on the webpage.

Step 2: Accessing Divi’s Visual Builder

  1. Navigate to your website’s dashboard.
  2. Open the page you wish to edit in Divi’s Visual Builder.

Step 3: Adjusting Padding

  1. Hover over a section/module to reveal its settings, then click the gear icon to access settings.
  2. Go to the Design tab, then find the Spacing option.
  3. Here, you can adjust the padding values for the top, bottom, left, and right. For example, setting top padding to 127 pixels creates space within the section at the top.
  4. Use the link icon between fields to ensure symmetrical padding on opposite sides.

Step 4: Adjusting Margins

  1. In the same Spacing area, adjust the margins to create space outside the container. This is useful for separating sections visually without affecting the internal layout.
  2. Negative margins can be applied for creative design effects, such as overlapping elements.

Step 5: Responsive Design Adjustments

  1. To ensure your website looks good across all devices, consider using percentages instead of pixels for a more responsive design.
  2. Divi allows you to set different padding and margin values for desktop, tablet, and mobile views. Use the mobile icon in the spacing settings to adjust for each device type.

Step 6: Practical Examples

  • Example 1: To make a logo pop between two sections, adjust the top margin to create the desired overlap effect.
  • Example 2: For buttons, adding padding around the text enhances readability and aesthetic appeal. Adjust margins to position the button perfectly within its section.

Step 7: Testing and Tweaking

  • Always preview changes on different devices. Adjust padding and margins in tablet and mobile views as necessary to maintain a cohesive and user-friendly design.
