How to create shape dividers for sections on your website pages

SHAPE DIVIDERS

A shape divider is an SVG file that adds a non-linear division between sections on your website page to enhance the design layout.

Page Speed Impact

LOW

Adding shape dividers does not have an impact on how quickly the page loads, they are created with very small SVG files that are optimized and are loaded asynchronously.

Pages without shape dividers will not load any additional JS files.

MEDIUM

Depending on layering and position on page, may have an impact on mobile devices due to the additional files that have to be loaded.

TIPS

Because they are SVG files, your shape dividers will be fully responsive on all screen sizes and resolutions, including retina displays.

If multiple shape dividers are on the same page or complex layering of shapes for a section, we recommend that you disable on mobile (can disable on mobile for basic shapes as well to reduce impact overall).

FAQ

Which modules have shape dividers?

Shape Dividers are included in the style settings for all POWER Sec modules with the exception of the POWER Sec Content Split module and POWER Sec Breadcrumbs.

Step-by-Step

Shape Dividers are designed to enhance your website layout by adding textural elements to the horizontal sections on the page, helping to blur the edges of sections of content to create a smooth transition as the user scrolls down the page.

Add Shape Dividers to Your HubSpot Website Theme

Marketing  → Website → Website Pages → [POWER SEC Module] → Style → Shape Divider

shape-divider-settings

Style → Shape Divider → Shape Item

This is where you will add the shapes to build your Shape Divider, you can add as many as you would like.

The first item in this list will be in the back (bottom layer). The last item in this list will be visible in the front (top layer).

Style → Shape Divider → Offset Top and Offset Bottom

The shape grows into the content area for the section. The offset adds space between the shape and the content area so you can control whether the shape overlaps the content (above or below can also be determined).

Style → Shape Divider → Above Content

If true, this hides the content if the shape overlaps it.

Style → Shape Divider → Disable on Mobile

Option to disable shape dividers on mobile to reduce the load time for the page (shape and JS files don't have to be loaded).
