On occasion you may have the need to make a single menu item look slightly different to the rest to draw attention to it, such as a ‘Get a Quote’ or ‘Get in Touch’ link.

We can do this quite easily with a little CSS. Rather than use the unique ID of the menu item, we are going to instead use a custom class so it can easily be changed if needed.

So let’s get cooking!

Navigate to Appearance > Menus and in the top right of the screen click on Screen Options.

Under Show Advanced Menu Properties ensure the box called CSS Classes is ticked.

Now expand the menu item you want to open in the CSS Classes (optional) field, add the class ds-custom-link and save your menu.

Next, add the following CSS to your child theme stylesheet or in the Divi theme options custom CSS box.

.ds-custom-link a {
    padding: 10px !important;
    background: #000;
    color: #fff !important;
    border: 2px solid #000;

.ds-custom-link a:hover {
    background: #fff;
    color: #000 !important;
    opacity: 1 !important;


This is very basic CSS and will just make your link look like a button, but you can get creative with this and add in any properties you like to create your own unique link design.

And that’s it, pretty simple eh?
