Divider Shortcode

Updated on December 29, 2017

A great way to organize page content is to use divider/separator lines. The divider shortcode allows you to insert different kinds of dividers between the page contents.

To display a divider in the Jupiter theme, you only need to add the divider shortcode in Visual Composer and configure the settings.

To see the Divider shortcode in action, check out the demo page.
