Section Builder

What Is A Section

A section template is displayed within other templates. Here’s three examples:

Example 1: You can create a section within pages so you can reuse it on other page templates e.g a sidebar or review box.

Example 2: You can create a fancy menu as a section template and then assign this to a dropdown menu.

Example 3: You can create a page of content as a section template and then display this as tab in the Advanced Tab element
