Create Your Gravity Form for Divi
If you’ve already installed and activated your Gravity Forms plugin, then the next thing left to do is create a form. So, for that, on your WordPress Dashboard, go to Forms → New Form.
This will open a popup asking for details for the new form. Simply, provide the information and then click Create Form.
Once you’ll do that, you are inside the Gravity Forms’ builder. Here, simply drag and drop form fields from the right container. If you’re satisfied with your form fields and their settings, click Save Form.
You’ve created the form; now it’s time to add it to the page and then style it. However, before that, ensure you’ve enabled the Divi Gravity Forms styler module. Don’t know how to do it? Let’s find out.
Enable Divi Plus Gravity Forms Styler Module
To enable the required module, go to Settings → Divi Plus, tick the checkbox near Gravity Form Styler, and Save Changes.
After enabling the module, you’re ready to style your Divi Gravity Form. Let’s see how we can do it.
Style Your Gravity From in Divi
Create a new page or edit an existing one where you want to display your styled Gravity Form. Don’t forget to launch the Divi Builder, and once you’ve done that, follow the below steps one by one.
#Step 1 – Add Gravity Form to Your Divi Page
To display a styled form on your Divi website, we need to first add it to the page. So, for that, add a new row, and in that row, insert the Gravity Form Styler module.
As soon as you insert the module, the settings would appear alongside the default module placeholder, “Oops! We could not locate your form.”
To add the form to the page, simply go to Form → Select Form → click on the form you want to display on the page. Upon your selection, you’ll have your Gravity Form in Divi in its default state like the following screenshot.

The following steps will guide you through customizing it further.
# Step 2 – Apply Content Customization on Your Divi Gravity Form
Gravity From Styler module’s content tab comprises the following additional settings – Form and Background.
The Form settings allow you to select the form, display the form title and description. Plus, you can also enable Ajax on the form.
In the Background settings, you can customize the form’s background with color, gradient, image, and even video.
After customizing the content of your form, you can switch the tab to customize the form’s design.
#Step 3 – Apply Design Customization to the Form
The design tab of the module comprises the following settings that you can utilize to improve your form’s look.
There’s a total of 15 additional settings included with native options of Divi for every element of the form. Moreover, each setting mostly covers individual elements of the form. So, you could easily work on each area of your Gravity Forms in Divi. Let’s take a closer look at some of the module’s options.
The Alignment settings of the Design tab allow you to change the form’s text alignment to Left, Right, Center and Justify.
Further, you can also utilize this option to apply shadow on the text. A good option when your website uses shadow effect on multiple elements.
Form Title, Description & Labels
With Form Title, Description, and Labels settings, you can apply text styling to the form’s title, description, and fields labels. Moreover, the Form Description settings provide you with the option to manage space between form title and description itself by setting padding values.
The Input Fields settings allow you to apply color on input fields, their text; placeholder text, and description. You can also utilize the settings to apply styling on the text of input fields, placeholder, and description.
The same setting offers additional options to apply padding, border radius, and shadow to the fields. So, you can make the fields look similar to your website’s design and color schemes.
After applying the customizations, you could have your form’s input fields like the following screenshot.
Radio, Checkbox, Textarea and Upload Fields
If you’ve included Radio Buttons and Checkbox in your form, then the styler module also got customization options for them.
The settings allow you to apply custom styling to change buttons and checkbox size, color, label text, and more. Similarly, the Upload Fields settings will enable you to change the field’s background, padding, and text customizations.
With Textarea Fields, you can increase or decrease its height per requirement.
The Submit Button settings comprise the options to change the button’s padding, apply background customizations, text styling, and more.
Using this particular setting, you can make your form’s submit button to match the styling of your website as well as the form’s fields.
The default appearance of the Gravity Form’s success or error message has no styling. It’s simple in a complete sense, as you can see in the following screenshot.
But, with the help of our Gravity Form Styler module, we can improve it as well. You need to open the Success/Error Message settings that provide text styling options for both Error and Success Message.
After applying the customizations, you can get your message to look like the following.
Styled Success Message for Gravity Forms in Divi
Styled Error Message for Gravity Forms in Divi
In addition to the above options, you get settings to customize Required and Field Instructions Text; Next/Previous Buttons and Save and Continue Button if you’ve created multi-steps form.
To take the form’s style to an even better level, you can utilize the native design options like Sizing, Spacing, Border, and Box Shadow to change the look of the Styler module’s area. And once you’re done with customizations, you can have a Gravity Form in Divi like the following example.
As you can see in the above steps, it’s seen how easy it is to style Gravity Forms in Divi. The Gravity Form Styler module offers all the essential options to take the form’s design to a new level.
And regardless of your Divi experience, you can make the appropriate changes to the form whenever needed.
The only question that remains is how you can get the module. Well, it’s no wonder; all you need to do is get your copy of Divi Plus. And it will provide you with the module as well as other exclusive features—for example, 25+ pre-built themes, 50+ modules, extensions, templates, and more.
I hope this tutorial helped you learn how you can style Gravity Forms in Divi. And by following the steps, you’d customize the form most excitingly.
