Content Section
Title
The Title of your page. You can add phases, words characters or numbers, to describe your article. Webwidget CMS will create a meaningful and user-friendly url using the main title.

As the name suggests, you can hide the page title on the rendered page. Select this to hide the title, useful when creating home page content.
Subheading
A subheading for your content page. Depending on your template configuration this is generally a small snippet of text to further describe your page.
