3. Choose your options. By default you can insert a solid line, dashed line, dotted, or double border. The color for these borders is set under Appearance /Customize / Content. You will also notice that there is an option for image 1, image 2, and image 3. Some of these borders come with your various themes.

4. You will see that the shortcode has some parameters. You can set the margin above or below the actual divider line. In my case, I want there to be as little space as possible, so I am going to insert 0px. This stands for zero pixels. You can choose any number you like. The bigger the number, the more space will be added above and below your divider line. Make sure you put whatever number then px.
