CSS Media Queries for the Divi Theme

The Divi Theme uses a responsive design, meaning it adjusts its layout to look good on any size of screen. This is achieved using CSS styles targeted at particular screen sizes using a technique called "media queries".

If we're looking to make changes to Divi using our own CSS, it can be useful to know the exact media queries Divi uses so that our styles are applied to the correct Divi layout. Here are the media queries Divi uses.

/* Large screens (1405px upwards) */
@media only screen and ( min-width: 1405px ) { 
    /* your css goes here */
}

/* Laptops and desktops (1100-1405px) */
@media only screen and ( min-width: 1100px ) and ( max-width: 1405px) { 
    /* your css goes here */
}

/* Tablets in landscape mode (981-1100px) */
@media only screen and ( min-width: 981px ) and ( max-width: 1100px ) { 
    /* your css goes here */
}

/* Tablets in portrait mode (768-980px) */
@media only screen and ( min-width: 768px ) and ( max-width: 980px ) {
    /* your css goes here */
}

/* Smartphones in landscape mode (480-768px) */
@media only screen and ( min-width: 480px ) and ( max-width: 767px ) {
    /* your css goes here */
}

/* Smartphones in portrait mode (0-479px) */
@media only screen and ( max-width: 479px ) {
    /* your css goes here */
}

I've added comments giving an indication of the type of devices (smartphones, laptops, etc) that will show each layout size, but note that this is a rough guide only – there is some overlap in which device types will show which screen resolution.

  1. Hello! Thanks for this useful snippet but…

    I think min-width should be 1101 instead of 1100 to avoid the 1px flash on resizing, no?

    • Hey Mister WP! Thanks for pointing this out. Technically, you're correct, of course. It should be 1101px to avoid an overlap, and similarly the min-width for the first block (large screens) should be 1406px. However, Divi itself uses 1100px as both the min and max width in its CSS (and hence suffers from the overlap issue), so if you're trying to override these Divi styles you'd actually need to use a min-width of 1100px to avoid the 1px flash. The same is true for 1405px, again used as both the min and max width in Divi's media queries. If you're adding your own styles and want to ensure a smooth transition then definitely use 1101px and 1406px. But for overriding Divi's styles, use 1100px and 1405px. I've left 1100px and 1405px in the post as my aim was to present the media queries Divi actually uses. I hope that all makes sense! Dan
