Knowledge Base:  Design - Site Editor:  Manage Sections

Details:
As soon as you create a new page in your site, this page contains one, single, 
default section. The pages in your site, however, can have multiple sections, and 
you can mix different section types in the same page.

The “Manage Sections” area allows you to add, delete and reorder the sections of 
a page. You are only able to enter your pages' Manage Sections areas, if Admin-
>Settings->General Settings->Manage Sections (Advanced) is enabled.

To enter the Manage Sections area of a page, click the “Manage Sections” link in 
the header of the “Modify Page” or “Change Settings” area of the page. Once you 
enter the Mange Sections area, you will see the Manage Sections header for the 
page:


the Manage Sections header has links to the “Modify Page” and “Change Settings” 
areas

Below the Manage Sections header, you will see a list of all page's sections, in 
the order in which they appear on the page.

Reordering Sections
To change the order in which sections appear on the page, click the “up” 
and “down” icons of the section, in the sections' list:


a section's “up” and “down” icons, respectively

Deleting Sections
To permanently delete a section from the page, and all information contained in it, 
click the “delete” icon.  
Warning: section deletion cannot be undone!

Assigning Sections to a Block
Some templates can specify more than one area on the page where you can add 
your sections. This allows you to display content in different areas of the page – 
such as, for instance, in a sidebar, or in the footer, as well as in the main content 
area. This can be useful for adding optional, secondary content to specific pages 
in your site. For this feature to be available, and be of any use, you must:

use a template that supports and uses Section Blocks 
enable Admin->Settings->General Settings->Section Blocks (Advanced) 
To select the block (ie., area of the page) where the section should be displayed, 
use the “Block” drop-down menu – then, click the “Save” button at the bottom of 
the Block column.

If the template you are using does not support Section Blocks, you may be able to 
add this feature to the template yourself. 

Editing a Section
To edit a section's content, click on the section 'type' in the list, or click on 
the “Modify Page” link in the Manage Sections header. Either way, you will be taken 
to the pages Admin->Pages->Modify Page.

Add Section
To add a new section to the page, select the section type from the “Add Section” 
menu, and click the “Add” button.

For extensive explanation on the configuration and settings for all standard 
section types, see Admin->Pages->Modify Page. Briefly:

Code: if you are a php programmer, you can use 'code' sections to enter php code 
directly into the page 
Form: setup cutomised forms that your site visitors and users can use to fill out 
and submit information to you 
News: a fully-functional blog, which optionally accepts visitor comments 
Wrapper: used to display external content – such as a page from an external 
website – inside your site 
WYSIWYG: the most common section type, holds static content, such as formatted 
text, lists, tables, images, and hyperlinks
