Support and Documentation


Sections allow you to organize your content into categories. Sections are often used in navigation menus to direct digital audiences to where they need to go.

Sections can be applied directly to content or to a standalone page, which automatically shows published content that matches itself.

How you use sections is up to you—you can have sections and subsections of those sections, or you can have content that isn’t associated with a section at all.

  • Display Name: This required field is the H1 display title of the section for front-end audiences. The field itself is a small rich-text editor (meaning it supports simple formatting like italics). The text that a user inputs into this field is automatically used by Brightspot to populate the asset’s URL, the asset’s SEO metatitle, as well as the asset’s internal Promo Title (how this asset will display around the site itself, such as in dynamic modules) and external Share Title (how this asset will appear on other websites, like if a user shares it on a social network). You can choose to write custom text for any of those placements, but Brightspot automatically populates those fields with the Display Name to be helpful.

  • Hide Display Name: Toggles whether the display name is displayed on the front end.

  • Internal Name: This field will be used to display this section in search results. It defaults to the Display Name field, but you can overwrite the default by typing text here.

  • Description: You can add a text description of the section. Text input in this field is passed to the front end.

  • Parent: This field allows the creation of a parent/child hierarchy structure of sections.  A section can only belong to one parent.

  • Section Navigation: Select whether this section should inherit the site navigation, have no navigation, or an additional, unique navigation.

  • Lead: Sections support placement of a lead, which can be an image or a video. When the Lead field is used, it will appear along with the dynamic results (for example, all the assets that match a given section).


The idea behind the Lead field is to allow content teams to promote or highlight something at the top of the page without having to fully curate the rest of the page. Think of this as “automatic with a highlight” mode.

  • Content: This field allows you to determine where modules display on the section page (Add After, Add Before, or Replace).
