Elements - Divider

Use the Divider content type to add a rule as a visual break between sections of content in the Page Builder stage. You can specify the line color, thickness, and width of the divider. You can also control the alignment, set the margins and padding, and format of the container border. By default, the divider is a hairline rule that extends the full width of the container, with allowance for padding.

Default divider in a container without a border

Although most divider containers are invisible, the following example displays the container with a red dashed border so you can see the relationship between the divider, the padding, and the container. You can adjust the padding at the top and bottom of the divider to control the spacing between elements.

When you are working in the Page Builder workspace, your content changes are not fully saved until you click the Close Full Screen () icon in the upper-right corner of the workspace, and then click Save in the upper-right corner for the CMS page, product page, category page, block, or dynamic block.

If you are making significant changes to Page Builder content, we recommend that you increase the Admin Session Lifetime to prevent the session from timing out while you work.
