Block

A block is an abstract model with which you define the structure of a piece of content.

Each block is made up of one or more elements.

For example, if you are creating a block for a blog article, you would create a model presumably composed of:

  • A textarea element for the title

  • A markdown element for the actual content

  • An image image element for the featured image

  • A dropdown element to create and pick categories for your articles

Section

A Section represents the block when it has been filled with its content

When you create the block for a blogpost and add content to it, you get a section

Element

With the term Element, we identify the fields that make up a certain block.

For instance, if the block is the model for a blog post, its elements could be a text area, media, images, link etc.
