Now it's time to select a template for your page.
Templates are pre-designed pages that can be personalized to match your unique style.

That's precisely why we have curated a library of ready-made templates for you.

By clicking on it, you can get a quick glimpse of each template's design and select the one that resonates with you.
Once you've made your decision, click on "Choose."

New Updates to the Web Page Builder
As we mentioned at the begging of the article, Heights Platform has recently released new exciting updates to the Web Page Builder.
Let's see what changed and how you can take advantage of these updates for your own website creation:
New Web Page Templates
We have added three new templates for you in the Web Page Builder!
Create awesome websites and landing pages using these new templates:
New Section Templates
We added new section templates so you can easily and quickly populate your web page designs with beautiful, ready-made blocks!
Simply add a new section, and drag the section template you need into it. Modify it with your own information, and you are done!
What are Section Templates?
Sections in the Web Page Builder are the building blocks of your website. Your hero section, about us, reviews block, pricing etc... are all examples of different sections you can add to your website.
Think of it as an empty "box" that can collect anything you want to add to your page.
Here are the new section templates available with this new update:
- 3-Column Feature: add a beautiful design showing three blocks with information
- Pricing Tiers: easily add a section showcasing your pricing options. Ideal for creators with multiple pricing tiers in their courses or membership sites! The template includes three pricing tiers, but you can edit it according to your own liking!
- Course Card List: showcase all of the courses you offer with the click of a button.
- Offer Price Highlight: Invite website visitors to join a special offer, or showcase your pricing with this template.
- Standout button: a banner with a call to action to promote your course or a special offer.
- FAQ Section: easily answer all of your customers' most burning questions with a frequently asked questions section pre-designed for you.
Other than the new ones, Heights creators already had access to some section templates, including a "background image + button," "about us," "testimonials," and "course curriculum."
Section templates can be easily dragged and dropped into your design, so you can quickly edit their content to match your information, without the need to building complex designs from scratch.
With this new update and the many new section templates available, creators have more freedom to choose the right website structure and design for them.
Section Style Changes
Quickly change the appearance of a section without the need of any design or web development skills!
When you select a section, you can edit its appearance from the "Element Settings", on top of the Style editor.
You can choose from a variety of styles that will change the background appearance of any section.
Most of these styles automatically add a vector to the background of your section, which you can customize! You can change the color of the background and of the vector to match your style.
Add an Empty Section
We have seen how you can use pre-made section templates in your design, but what if you want something different?
You can now add empty sections to your pages to give your more freedom and design options!
Simply click "Add Empty Section" on the editor bar, or click on the + button that appears once you select an existing section!
Then fill the empty sections with section templates or with your own creations!
