To clarify, generic sections don’t have a specific purpose and can contain any page builder content and can be assigned almost everywhere in the site.
To create a new generic global section:
- Access Rey Theme > Global Sections
- Hit Add new.
- Select “Generic” in the Type option
- Publish the page
- Hit Edit with Elementor
- Add elements.
Assigning generic global sections through entire the site:
You can assign global sections globally by accessing Customizer > General > Global sections.
- Create a new one by hitting “New Section”
- Select the section
- Select its position in the site
The available positions are:

- Before Site Container
- After Site Container
- Before Footer
- After Footer
- After Site Wrapper
