How To Style And Customize The Divi Post Navigation Module

In this tutorial, I am will show you how to style and customize the Divi Post Navigation module with CSS for navigating previous and next posts and pages.

Customize The Text Of The Divi Post Navigation Previous And Next Buttons

The first thing you may want to do is customize the text of the navigation links. In the video, I show how we said “Previous Demo” and “Next Demo,” but this all depends where you use it. If you have this in a Divi Theme Builder template for blog posts, you could leave it blank to show the previous and next blog post titles, or say something like “Previous Post” or just “Previous.”

Adjust The Divi Post Navigation Text Link Design Settings

The next step is to start adjusting some of the basic settings that are included in the Post Navigation module design tab under the Links Text toggle. It is very strange, but the way this is made in Divi they act as links rather than buttons. This is why you need this tutorial and snippet.

So go ahead and start with things like the font, font weight, text size, and line height. But don’t set the link text color in the Divi settings. I know this sounds weird, but we need to do this with CSS instead. The reason for this is because if you use the Links Text Color, it does not apply to the arrows. By using CSS, it also applies to the arrows. You can see what I mean in the video.

Change The Divi Post Navigation Text Links Into Buttons

Now that we have some basic design styles set, let’s continue by adding some CSS to style and customize the Divi post navigation links to look more like buttons. We are adding a background color, border, padding, rounded border, hover effect, and a transition speed.

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.

/*style the Divi Post Navigation buttons*/

.et_pb_posts_nav .nav-previous a,
.et_pb_posts_nav .nav-next a {
	color: #ffffff;
	background: #0048ff;
	border: 2px solid #0048ff;
	padding: .7em 1.3em;
	border-radius: 50px;
	transition: all 0.3s ease-in-out;
}


/*style the Divi Post Navigation buttons on hover*/

.et_pb_posts_nav .nav-previous a:hover,
.et_pb_posts_nav .nav-next a:hover {
	color: #0048ff;
	background: transparent;
	border: 2px solid #0048ff;
	transition: all 0.3s ease-in-out;
}

Here’s how the links now look as buttons with the CSS added! Much better!

Obviously you can change the colors, padding, border, border radius, transition speed, etc! I hope this gets you started and that you enjoyed this tutorial!
