What is a Section Manager?

Actually, the section on KingComposer was managed via a post type – kc-section

It looks like a WordPress page, you can easy edit/add new as a page normal, even you can edit on Live Editor mode. And with action you have include or clone it into page.

 

What are Include and Clone mode?

With section on KingComposer, we have two ways to import section into page.

Clone : This method allow you import section content inside page when you edit, you can change content of that section immediately without effect to content on section stored.

Include : That is method allow you import section into many pages but content for that section on all pages are controlled via section manager. It means, when you change content of section, it will be changed on all page which use that section.
