    Here's a quick Visual Guide on how to Manage Sections in the new CMS.

    [B]1. Editing a Section: [/B]If you have permissions to manage a Section, as you hover over the Section title, a pencil icon will display.

    [B]4. Section Layout: [/B] For each section you can define an individual section layout.
