The following setting can be changed when editing a Section:

  • General information
  • Content
  • Content types
  • Page layouts
  • Metadata
  • Subsections
  • Edit rights
  • Access
  • Mirrored sections

Not all Sections include all elements, e.g., Link Sections have less editable elements.  

What users can do with Sections can be configured in the Hierarchy settings.
There is a configurable option in the Role Customization allowing you to set the minimum user level allowed to Create, Edit and Delete Sections.

For details on each of the Section options have a look at the Create Section page.

Subsections can be manually re-ordered or automatic ordering can be applied. Subsection Automatic Ordering works the same way as Content Item automatic ordering.
