Easily manage page builder templates in one location. Templates added within the Global Sections post type can be assigned to theme-specific areas or added into pages via a page builder element. Changes that are then made to the core template within the Global Sections post type will reflect automatically in all other areas that the global section has been assigned.
Global sections unlock many new exciting possibilities for managing content and even make it possible to replace the theme footer with a page builder template.
