15 Dot Navigation Styles for Divi Single Page Sites

by | Aug 18, 2016 | 36 comments

Update(27.06.2017): I have released the DotNav plugin which lets you do all the custom stylings suggested in this post and much more quickly and easely without having to deal with code. The DotNav plugin for Divi enhances the Dot Navigation by adding lots of new features to it, with this plugin you can do all customizations with live preview in Theme Customizer interface. Learn more here.

In this post I am going to share some nice custom styles for the Divi Dot Navigation. That is because I have noticed that most people that use Divi theme never change the default style of Dot Navigation and use it as it is. The default style is nice but it may become boring when everybody uses the same thing.

So, I decided to prepare some custom styles for Dot Navigation and share them with people. Below you can find 15 different custom styles and CSS snippets for each of them. All you need to do is to grab the CSS code and paste it into Divi -> Theme Options -> General -> Custom CSS or into your child theme style.css file. Enjoy!
