Section Parameters

A section parameter is a freely-definable key-value pair that can be assigned to a section using CUE. For example:


Section parameters are inherited, so if the above parameters are assigned to the root section of a publication, then they will apply to the whole publication by default. However, you can redefine the parameters in a subsection; these new settings will override the inherited ones and apply to the subsection and all its subsections, as shown below:

Section parameters can be used to:

  • Differentiate the sections in a publication without the need for writing many different section templates.

  • Give publication administrators a simple means of control over the appearance/behaviour of the sections in a publication.
