<txp:section /> sing/cont tag, 6 attributes


The section tag can be used as either a single tag or container tag. It will display information about the section as defined by either the name attribute, the section currently being viewed, or the section of the article being displayed (if used within an article form, or an if_individual_article conditional tag).

When used as a containing tag, it will turn the contents into a link to that section. Otherwise, it will return plain text.
