Here is the first of the Divi Soup Quick Snacks –  Styling the back to top button and including an image.

So let’s get cooking!

A suitable PNG image 30px by 30px


Cooking time


This should take you around 5 minutes max.




The first thing we need to do is create a transparent PNG file containing the image we want to use in our back to top button. I am using part of the Divi Soup logo as you can see here.


Once you have that ready, upload it to your media library within WordPress and make a note of the path.




Now for the CSS, copy and paste the code below into your Child Theme style.css or if you aren’t using a child theme (which you really should be) then paste into the Divi Theme Options epanel custom CSS section and don’t forget to save.

/*Back to top button styling*/

/*This section adds the image*/
.et_pb_scroll_top:before { 
    content: url(YOUR IMAGE URL HERE) !important;  

/*This section changes the shape to a circle and moves the button in from the edge of the screen*/ {
    padding: 8px;
    -webkit-border-radius: 50%;
    -moz-border-radius: 50%;
    border-radius: 50%;
    right: 20px;

If you would like to retain the default icon and just style the shape then use this CSS instead.

/*Back to top button styling*/

.et_pb_scroll_top:before {
    content: "2";

/*This section changes the shape to a circle and moves the button in from the edge of the screen*/ {
    padding: 8px;
    -webkit-border-radius: 50%;
    -moz-border-radius: 50%;
    border-radius: 50%;
    right: 20px;


And that’s it, now you should have a custom back to top button.
