Multi-Section Modules

A multi-section module splits a module into sections and displays different content in each section. You can add, edit, or remove sections.

A section is an area of a multi-section module dedicated to a piece of content. Content can include HTML code, links, and images. The sections appear in the module in the order you choose.
