The use of "Section" has been deprecated from Joomla 2.5 and later Versions, please use: Categories.

In Joomla! versions up to and including Joomla 1.5, a Section is a collection of Categories. It is the top level in the hierarchy Sections -> Categories -> Articles. For example, a website might have Sections called "Animals" and "Plants". Within the "Animals" Section, the website might have Categories such as "Birds" and "Mammals".

Sections are maintained using the Section Manager (Administrator (Back-end) by clicking on the Content menu, then the Section Manager menu item.
