Theme sections

In the past this list was only for your site  homepage but starting with the new Shopify OS 2.0 you can now use these sections in any page.  

You can add as many sections as you wish under the Sections tab in theme customizer. Each section can be added multiple times with different options and everything can be rearranged (with a simple drag and drop), giving you large freedom over the final look of your website.

To add a section, just click the Add section button, select the desired section, then click the Add.  Here's a list of the available sections and a short description for each:
