The Section content type serves as a parent section of all Asset pages that are included in your site's taxonomy. The Section is part of Brightspot Core. The Section drives the URL folder of Asset pages, so if your Article Asset has Section 1 as its parent, the URL path will be /section-1/article-name. In Falcon, the Section is also exposed as the eyebrow or label on pages, and promo modules.
If assets are given a parent Section, they will automatically populate on the Section page with a default appearance. The default module is the "Card Image on Top" style. Editors can always override the default by adding modules on the Section content well manually.
