Magento Page Builder Divider is the content type that allows you to add tailored horizontal lines that separate your content. Sometimes, you can use it as a great way to reduce the extra white space, as I did on this simple page created by Magento Page Builder. Still, few people are concerned with it because they think it’s just a minor page factor. But, in reality, a divider can make a big difference on your page if you know how to use it well.

Where Is Magento Page Builder Divider Located?

When you access the Magento Page Builder workspace, expand Elements on the left panel. Then you’ll see the Divider element under this section.

How to Add a Divider in Magento Page Builder

Like other Elements content types, you can’t directly drag a Divider placeholder to the right stage without first adding a Layout content type. These content types include Magento Page Builder Row, Column, and Tabs.

So, here are specific steps to follow:
#Step 1: From the left panel under Layout, drag Row to the blank stage. Drop the row when the red guideline shows up.

#Step 2: Span the Elements section on the left panel. Then click its drop-down list to show Magento Page Builder Divider. Drag the Divider element to the row and drop it below the red guideline.

#Step 3: This is how the divider looks in Magento Page Builder.

In fact, it’s quite a thin line. You must work with its settings if you want it to be thicker or have a more outstanding color. To begin, I’ll explain its toolbox, which allows you to open the Edit Divider page. To display the toolbox, hover over the Divider container. Below are the labeled components on the toolbox.

How to Customize Magento Page Builder Divider

#Step 1:  Hover over the Divider container to show its toolbox. Then click the gear icon to access the Divider settings.

#Step 2: You are now landing on the Edit Divider page, which contains all these settings.

the Edit Divider page

As you can see above, the Divider settings are divided into two sections.

  • Basic settings: enables you to stylize the divider itself. 
  • Advanced settings: enables you to customize the Divider container. 

So, let’s begin with the basic settings.

1. Basic Settings

  • Line Color: Select your desired color for the divider line. You can do this job in one of the following ways:

+ Select your desired swatch (1)

+ Directly select the color using the color picker (2)

+ Set a valid hexadecimal code or color name (3)

And don’t forget to click Apply to confirm your choice.

  • Line Width: Set the line width by entering a number followed by either px or %.

Now we’re finished. Let’s move on to the next section, Advanced.

2. Advanced Settings

If you’ve already learned Magento Page Builder Row, Column, Heading, or Text, you will definitely be familiar with this Advanced section, right? If so, you can skip it. Otherwise, let’s just keep going.

Magento Page Builder Divider With Advanced Settings
  • Alignment: Determine how the divider lines up within the parent container. In all the examples of the article, the parent container is the row container.
Alignment OptionDescription
DefaultUse the default alignment setting determined in the current theme’s style sheet. The default alignment in the current theme (Luma) is Left.
LeftAlign the divider along the left side of the row container.
CenterAlign the divider to the middle of the row container.
RightAlign the divider along the right side of the row container.

To better show how the divider line is aligned, I reduced the line width to 50%.

  • Border: Select the border style for four sides of the Divider container.

And here is an illustration that shows how these borderlines appear. (Source: W3)

All options are clearly shown in the image above. Moreover, you can refer to Magento Page Builder Heading where we’ve provided specific examples for each. So I won’t explain further. 

If you set None for Border, you won’t be able to change the border color and width. If you take other options, then you can do so.

  • Border Color: Choose the color for the Divider container’s borders using one of the methods below:

+ Choosing your desired swatch (1)

+ Using the color picker (2)

+ Entering the valid color value (3)

And click Apply.

  • Border Width: Set the border thickness. If you leave this field blank, the border won’t appear, even if you’ve already set the color. (Unit: px)
  • Border Radius: Set the border radius to round the corners of the Divider container’s border. (Unit: px)

  • CSS Class: Enter the names of CSS classes to apply to the Divider container. In the case of several class names, use a space to separate them.
  •  Margins and Padding: Apply the blank space to the outside and the inside edges of the Divider container’s sides.

To demonstrate, I set the divider’s top padding and top margin to 100px. However, the top margin (the amount of blank space outside the Divider container’s border) does not show up. Instead, the top padding has now increased to 200px, which should be 100px.

The margin was still displayed when I checked it in the front end. You can see it in the image below.
