What is a Section?
Sections are the page building frameworks that hold widgets. They form the underlying structure of your page. There are three types of section. The grid layout is probably the most-used to form a grid of cells, like a table, that hold widgets. The accordion and foundation tab have specific use cases, creating the visuals of a stacked accordion or tabbed file folders. Each accordion pane and each tab can hold any widget type as well. Between these three sections it’s possible to build a very wide range of page layouts.
