How To Place Two Divi Buttons Side By Side In The Same Column Tutorial by Pee-Aye Creative

How To Place Two Divi Buttons Side By Side In The Same Column

This quick Divi Pro Tip will show you how to place two button modules side by side in the same column with a simple and easy solution.

Add The CSS Code Snippet

We are not actually going to do anything to the Button Module itself, but rather to the colum that the Button Modules are inside. That’s because we need to target the button wrapper, and this is the only way to do that.

Find the row and column where you want to place the buttons. In the column settings, go to the Advanced tab to the CSS Class. Add the class “pa-inline-buttons” and save.

Next, add the following snippet your Divi>Theme Options>Custom CSS box.

/*place button modules next to each other in the same column*/
.pa-inline-buttons .et_pb_button_module_wrapper {
    display: inline-block;
}

Add Button Modules

Now you can go ahead and add two or more Button Modules there in that column. They will line up next to each other.

Adjust The Spacing In The Button Modules

Now of course you can adjust the spacing, because by default they will smash right up against each other. I’d recommend going in to the button settings and adding a margin left of 10px or so on the right button.

Center The Buttons In The Column

If you want to center the buttons inside the column, you will need to add an additional snippet of code:

.pa-inline-buttons {
    text-align: center !important;
}

Hi and many thanks for this.

I’m just trying to get the two buttons to be centred in the column and not sure how to do this?

I’ve set the Button Alignment to Center but there doesn’t seem to be an option in the Column Settings to Center content?

I’ve set some vw margin at the moment to move them right and create a space between the two but this is not going to achieve consistent centering across all screen sizes.

Is there any additional css that can be added?

Thanks in advance

Alan Rogers

Fantastic – thank you 🙂

Thank you for fantastic content.

Luckily this worked for three buttons, as can be seen in the image, where the “Date”, “Location” and “Gender” are all aligned perfectly. But how would you align buttons towards the bottom in Call To Action-modules?

I’ve attached a photo that hopefully will explain what I mean. But I have a row of Call To Action-modules (the ones with pictures of individuals and buttons with their names); which will be constantly added to.

The above row is how it looks like in my website and the lower row is what I created with Paint:

What module would you recommend I use instead? And any easy to follow step-by-step guide for that, since I’m a novice (and don’t intend to have any text on the images, just buttons – and those buttons, when clicked on, would open up popups for each individual with more info and pictures)

This is amazingly helpful, thank you, thank you!. Now I’ve just got to get my side by and nicely centred buttons (and only the buttons) to always be at the bottom of the column and lined up with each other across the page. I have text of different lengths above them (don’t we always!) I don’t suppose you can help me with that? I’ve been trying all sorts to but nothing has worked. If i try the position: absolute; / bottom: 0; it knocks everything out of whack. and flex puts them one on top of each other again. I’m… Read more »

Thanks for getting back to me. That of course worked like a dream. Why I dint think of that perfectly simple solution is beyond me. But like you say, sometimes you just overlook the simple solution. Thanks again for your help 🙂

Hi Nelson, This looks simple, but I cannot seem to get it to work! I have placed the code in the correct places (have tried placing the CSS in Page, Divi Options and Child CSS Files) But the buttons will not go side by side, they just stay in their original (Default) positions I have also tried on blank page and the DIVI theme builder, but all have the same result…:( I have no other custom CSS applied to buttons or Plugins that might be interfering so I am now at a loss as to why? Unfortunately it is not… Read more »

Absolutely 🙁 double checked your written and video instructions, it is an odd one. I Have implemented some of your other tips/trick without issue in the past!
Getting Closer, just not inline

Again, Great guide.

I was wondering if it would be possible to do the same thing but with image modules within a column instead?

Thanks !

Hi Nelson, thanks for the helpful tutorial. Is there a way to disable this for smartphone? I assume I have to add something to the snippet?

Hello! Does this only work in Divi? I tried using your method in another builder but it didn’t work 🙁

GoHighLevel is what I tried using it in, in case it matters 😀

Hi, I’m able to get this to work on a row with a single column, but when it’s multiple columns it doesn’t seem to work for me. Any suggestion?

Gal

That’s correct, but maybe I’m doing this wrong. On this page you can see the buttons are not side by side in the 2 column rows, but are behaving as expected on the bottom of the page: https://channelpro.pypestream.com/

Are you saying there is another underlying issue?
