1. Add A Custom CSS Class To The Divi Contact Form

The first step in the tutorial is to add a custom CSS class to the Contact Form module. This is used to target the correct module with the code in order to only make this affect only a specific module. 

To add the custom class, open the module settings and go to the Advanced tab. Go to the CSS IDs & Classes toggle. Place the class “pa-contact-form-focus-borders” in the CSS Class input field of the Contact Form module.

2. Add The Custom CSS Code Snippet

The second step is to add the custom CSS code to your website. This step is also very easy, and we are doing the work with only a few lines of CSS.

If you are using our free Divi child theme, place this snippet into the style.css file. Otherwise, place this in your Divi>Theme Options>Custom CSS code box. If you need help, check out our complete guide on Where To Add Custom Code In Divi.

.pa-contact-form-focus-borders input:focus,
.pa-contact-form-focus-borders textarea:focus {
	border: 2px solid #00d263;

After adding and saving the code, your form fields would look like this when you click to type:

The code is very simple. It targets the custom class added to the module and uses the :focus pseudo class. The focus state is triggered when a user clicks within the field element. When that happens, the CSS for the border is applied.

You can customize the thickness and color according to your own preference.
