Sections are modular components of a Shoplazza theme that you can arrange and customize to complete the build of an online store using the Shoplazza theme editor. Sections and blocks contain content and element settings for specific areas of your Shoplazza store, such as setting up an HTML section to enable shipment tracking directly in your store, or adding an image and text section to visualize and promote your product collections.
Each Shoplazza theme contains two types of theme sections:
- Theme sections
This refers to modular components that serve a specific function of your store. More specifically, the Shoplazza theme sections are sections and blocks exclusive to a particular theme.
- Additional sections
This refers to standard sections that are accessible from any theme library templates you select as the foundation to develop your online store.
The Shoplazza additional sections are only limited to a handful of free themes. The table below shows which themes have additional sections:

Defining content with metafields and dynamic sources
Metafields helps you store additional information in your online store. You can assign configured metafields to a section or block in the theme editor.
