What are shape dividers?

Rather than having a straight line at the top or bottom of your strips, shape dividers are graphic shapes that add interest and create unique and fluid transitions between strips on your Wix website.


Shape dividers are perfect for connecting or creating a smooth shift between visual content and a single-colored section. Using the same colour for your shape divider as your strip on your Wix website page helps the image to be merged seamlessly across the section.


The shape divider feature uses optimised vectors, that are customised and ready to be attached to either the top or the bottom of the strips on your Wix website.
