Did you see the divider animate in? I think that’s pretty cool. Especially since it animates on scroll. So it’s pretty neat.

It’s a neat little trick, and here’s how you do it.

Let’s start with a bar counter module. We’re going to use it as an animated underline to a heading. Go ahead and add a bar counter.

Make the background of the module itself transparent by pulling down the opacity to 0.
And add cool-divider to the custom class.

Now for the counter.

Set the percentage to 100.

and set the color you want in the counter background (next tab)

And of course, add this CSS to a place where you add custom CSS.
(Divi theme options, theme customizer, child theme CSS file, or page custom CSS)

.cool-divider.et_pb_counters > li {
	margin: 0px !important;
	padding: 0px !important;
	text-indent: 0px !important;
}
.cool-divider.et_pb_counters > li:before {
	content: none !important;
}
.cool-divider.et_pb_counters .et_pb_counter_container {
    width: 90px;
    margin: 0 auto;
    height: 2px;
}
.cool-divider.et_pb_counters span.et_pb_counter_amount_number {
	display: none;
}

Edit: I had a comment on my YT video asking about why I don’t just use the divider module. I got a FB comment about this as well.

My answer to not using the divider module is that
– I like how this is subtle yet eye-catching.
– It’s contradictory, I know, but it’s something that when noticed is pretty cool, without being too overbearing.
– That’s the kind of animation that I like using.
– My style isn’t too heavy on things popping up slowly, bogging down the scroll and readability.

Hope this makes sense. 🙂
