This is #2 in a series of cool sectional dividers inspired by the techniques used on tympanus.net.  I even went in and implemented a few on my own website just for fun and to get in some practice http://montereypremier.com/portfolio/

The tips on  tympanus.net are pretty much self explanatory when you dig into the stylesheet but may be a little intimidating to non-css folks.

There are just a few things you have to adjust in Divi. So here is a novice-friendly step by step tutorial for creating triangles between sections in Divi using only CSS.




Lets Get Started


First thing you need to do is assign a unique CSS Class to the section you would like to have the triangles either above or below.

1. Open the section settings



2. Give it the following CSS Class: triangles




The Magic of CSS

Now lets start to dazzle things up a bit with some CSS.

If you are working with a child theme you can go to Appearance>Editor and open your stylesheet. If not, go to Appearance>Divi Theme Options>ePanel>Custom CSS (which is located at the bottom of the ePanel)

Add this CSS.

/*------[Triangle Dividers - Quiroz.co]-------*/

	.triangles::before, .triangles::after {position: absolute; content: ''; pointer-events: none;}

	.triangles::before, .triangles::after {
		left: 50%;
		width: 100px;
		height: 100px;
		-webkit-transform: translateX(-50%) rotate(45deg);
		transform: translateX(-50%) rotate(45deg);}

        /* Top arrow pointing down. Currently set as black. This can be removed if you don't want a top arrow */
    	    .triangles::before {top: -50px; background: #000;}

        /* Bottom arrow pointing down. Currently set to inherit the background of the section. This can be removed if you don't want a bottom arrow */
	     .triangles::after { bottom: -50px; z-index: 10; background: inherit;}


On some occasions this trick might put the triangle a little too close to the content in the section. To remedy this, just add a divider in between the content and the triangle and set its height at about 50.

This trick is ideal when you are working between sections with a solid background color and not an image. To change the triangle colors, just change this piece right here.



On the next tutorial, I will cover how to add a triangle that is transparent and shows the background image like I have on the header of my example demo page.

I love providing these tutorials for free but for those of you who use these to your financial gain, might you consider buying this poor guy a coffee? 😉



Well that’s all for now. I hope you find this article useful.
