    Hi!

    I really like the section tool. I often need to copy one section with its content and parameters and paste it to another web-page. Is there any simple way to do it?

    It is a little hard to do if you have to paste a section on more than 10 pages.

    Thanks!

    Hi there,

    Not currently unfortunately.

    Sections won’t be getting any improvements with the emergence of Gutenberg editor.

    We are actively working on a section-like block editor and will definitely consider adding duplicate option.

    Let me know if this helps 🙂

    Thanks, Leo. Does it mean that soon GP will remove sections tool in one of new updates?

    P.S. Me and plenty of users don’t like G-berg … and always disable it.

    No we won’t be removing sections – it just won’t get any new features.

    I’ll admit that Gutenberg takes a bit to get used to but Tom, David and myself all like it (especially with the new sections-like plugin).

    Ok) Just think about 2 features for sections:

    1. Field “Preferences Id” – just to input already existing section preferences
    2. Field “Content Id” – just to use already existing section content

    Hi there,

    my personal method when using Sections is to create a draft page, design out all of the Sections i would need for my pages, create multiple versions of a section if i need to use it more than once on a page.
    Then use the Duplicate Post plugin to create a new Draft each time i want to create a page with Sections. Edit/delete on the new page as necessary.

    For global content that may get updated regularly i would use hooks or widgets for this.

    This is one are where Gutenberg has got it right with Re-usable blocks so common incontent elements can be updated from one place.

    Thanks, David! Nice idea!

    What hooks/widgets do you use to insert global content into sections?

    Can’t do it in Sections – i mean within the theme templates. If you want to do it on Sections then you would need to use Shortcodes.
    Widget Shortcodes is a good plugin to make that easier.
