Section Types

Section

By default, OnlyHtml places fields into the a section called "General" in your dashboard. After a while, though, this can become unwieldy.
Sections are an organizational unit of OnlyHtml. They allow you to group tags together, and display them under a separate dashboard page, other than General.
To create a section, just enclose template tags within a section block:
{{#section about}}
<div>
<h2>{{oh title}}</h2>
{{oh body type="html"}}
</div>
{{/section}}

Collection

Occasionally, you’ll want to create a section that has repeating content, this is what Collection is for. For example, let’s say you want to give the ability to edit company office locations:
<ul>
{{#collection offices}}
<li>
<h5>{{oh name}}</h5>
{{oh city}}, {{oh state}}
</li>
{{/collection}}
</ul>

Collection Item

Some collections require an overview page and a details page. Continuing the example above, we might want to create individual page for each office. For this, we can use the {{_permalink}} template tag (note the underscore before “permalink”).
<ul>
{{#collection offices multiple=true}}
<li>
<h5><a href="{{_permalink}}">{{oh name}}</a></h5>
{{oh city}}, {{oh state}}
</li>
{{/collection}}
</ul>
The {{_permalink}} tag tells OnlyHtml to create a link for this individual office. When the link is clicked OnlyHtml will render a template file at www/<collection-name>.html. In our example OnlyHtml will look for a file named www/_offices.html . Here is an example for a details page for our office.
<body>
{{#collection_item}}
<h1>{{oh title}}</h1>
{{oh body type="html"}}
{{/collection_item}}
</body>
Notice how we used collection-item to render a specific item in our collection.

Page

Page is technically the same as a section, the only difference depends on the dashboard support. The target is to allow different areas in the dashboard for full pages and sections. For example I would use {{#page}} for a section that is tied directly to the speicifc page, but use a section for a Contact Us section that might appear in the end of each page and is not tied to a specific page.
